Shamanic Healing Circle
Tomball, TX
Saturday, Oct. 14th
6-9:30pm

Join Katherine Skaggs, shamanic practitioner and visionary artist for an evening of heart. Within the shamanic healing circle you will experience a community space dedicated to raising your vibration and your ability to experience balance, harmony and joy.

Shamanic healing circles give great support, especially in rocky times and chaotic challenges. Texas, particularly your area, has been hit hard as of late. It is an excellent time to clean away the challenges, the losses, and even the survivor's guilt for some, as well as a time to be filled back up. We are in a reset spiritually as well as physically. Healing circle work and heart-centered spiritual practices are as important now as ever.

Katherine will open a medicine wheel, calling the allies of the directions, as well as connecting to Great Spirit. You will be cleaned and cleared individually and collectively within the group experience. Katherine will use sacred smudge or sacred tobacco to clean your aura, and offer agua de florida (flower water with prayers) to raise your vibration. Each person will also receive a healing within the group container. Various shamanic instruments such as drums, rattles, feathers, and prayers will be used in the process to raise your frequency and restore your soul.

This circle is a beautiful and sacred container to clean out the old energies that do not serve you, as well as to support your true essence shining brightly.


Katherine Skaggs returning home from the jungles of Peru

Katherine Skaggs is a shamanic practitioner who has trained internationally with indigenous shamans for the past 11 years. (Shipibo Shamans and their traditions from the Amazon Jungles of Peru, Huichol traditions from Mexico, Qur'o traditions from the Andes, as well as Native American and other traditions from shamans around the world via her teachers in Santa Fe, NM.)

Katherine's goal and prayer is to act as a hollow reed to facilitate your healing, and bring greater harmony.


Shamanic Healing

Shamanic Healing is an ancient practice of healing that encompasses the spiritual dimension of healing, as well as the mental, emotional and physical healing. Shamanic medicine healing practices are multi-cultural, found among indigenous peoples around the globe, and date back more than 25,000 years.

Fundamental concepts of shamanism:

1. Everything is alive. Everything has spirit and awareness.
2. Energy and matter are the same. Everything is vibration. Everything that exists is an energy system within a greater energy system.
3. Everything that exists is connected to everything else in a web of energy or life.
4. Unseen/inner/spiritual reality affects visible reality.

A shamanic practitioner is a “hollow bone” for Spirit, whose job is to bring balance and harmony to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions for an individual, a community or group, for a home, land, or any object or being. This also can be applied to anything that exists.

Shamanic healing takes place in many forms, depending on what intuitive guidance is received from Spirit. This can include plant, herb and mineral spirit medicine, the use of song and other instruments to move and transform energy, visualization, soul retrieval, extraction, hands on shamanic massage or physical body manipulation. The shamanic practitioner understands the necessity to use both nature and spirit in healing and that true healing is whole and complete: body, mind and spirit.

Awakening the Divine Feminine
Reclaiming Your Beauty & Power
Norfolk, NE
Saturday, April 16
9:00am - 4pm

Join Katherine Skaggs, visionary artist of the Mythical Goddess Tarot, shamanic practitioner and painter of souls for Awakening Your Divine Feminine.  Come into a sacred circle to honor the Divine within yourself, and to embrace and awaken your Divine Feminine power.

For thousands of years we have demonized and disconnected from our Divine Mother, our Divine Feminine power that resides within each of us, whether we are male and female. We are now in a time where restoration is not only available, but is a must for reclaiming if we are find peace, balance, compassion and strength for transformation in a world that has become polarized and in many areas devoid of this sacred, loving, wise energy. We need our Divine Mother energy awakened within our consciousness to proceed forward in our wholeness and power if we want to be healthy in our bodies, our minds and our spirits.

Within this class we will open sacred space,where we will experientially learn about the Divine Feminine, the Mother Goddess, and how to activate it within our own selves for a more sacred experience of life. The morning session will bring us into sacred ceremony; teach us about the sacred, great cosmic womb container represented by the Sacred Feminine; shed light on the world of potential and possibility that lives within the womb/container spaces; assist you in expanding your havingness and pleasure for life; guide you in the importance of good boundaries to protect your dreams and manifest your life; illuminate sacred destruction as a vital part of creation; teach the role of the sacred feminine in balance with the sacred masculine; show you how to call in our allies and energies of the Divine Feminine and her many faces, and much more.

In the afternoon we will work with the 22 Goddess archetypes of the Mythical Goddess Tarot. Each Goddess brings her own story, face and energy of the Divine Feminine into form, and teaches us how to invoke this into our lives. To reclaim these parts of ourselves, we must learn Her-Story, as History has left out the depth and breadth of the Goddess and Divine Mother that has been reflected to us for many thousands of years prior to the current patriarchal model. This reclamation will activate your own healing and potentiation of great love, and expanded sense of self.

To join this day of Awakening the Divine Feminine will be to join in a day of restoration and healing; it will be a time of letting go of the old, worn out stories of disconnection and disempowerment to allow and awaken your true sense of Self, of fullness, deserving, and havingness.

Things you will need for class:

Water for the day
Sack lunch
Snacks
Notebook and pen
Anything you might like to put onto the altar for blessing (jewelry, written prayers, a stone, sacred items

Within the concept of “medicine” you will explore your personal “medicine”, the medicine of Mother Nature and the medicine of your allies, guides and guardians, and how to restore your medicine when you have leaked it away or feel disempowered.
