For the last journey circle of 2012, Institute for the Shamanic Arts (ISA) gathered to explore the tradition of soup making.
This was during our Shamanic Soup workshop.
Each individual brought a soup ingredient that they felt was an important soup addition.
While the soup simmered away full of spinach, kale, mushrooms, garlic, ginger, yams, sweet potatoes, spices, onion, and of course, love, we all journeyed to the beat of the shamanic drum.
We contemplated the thought of a caterpillar inside of its chrysalis in a soup state with all of its DNA present to make a butterfly.
We laughed at a coyote tale about coyote always being ready with his hidden spoon.
We expressed gratitude and realized that we are always in a state of gratitude.
We even recognized that, “It’s all perfect.” Each given moment is perfect.
We shared stories, laughed, listened to the rain fall, kept warm, ate homemade tortillas (thank you!) and enjoyed deeply nourishing soup.
As a final touch, we each went into our journeys and fetched what we thought would be the perfect ingredient for an ISA Shamanic Soup.
This special ISA Shamanic Soup sounds amazing and you are invited to partake in all of ISA’s nourishment for the year 2013!
See you then!
