On Saturday, November 26, the Institute for the Shamanic Arts presented Cracking Open-A Shamanic Evocation.

Performance members spent the day preparing the space by setting things up, clearing the space with ritual, smudging,  bringing in love and light, communing with our spirit guides, sharing camaraderie, and really invoking our intentions for the the night.

There were many well thought out goals for this performance. To revisit some of them, they were:

1. In a shamanic style, we will act as hollow bones to evoke messages of “cracking open” (creation anew through the power of memory or imagination).

2.  We will personally bring forth a part/parts of ourselves that are ready to be manifested.

3. We will be a welcoming group to benevolent star beings. (This was amended to include all benevolent beings).

The performance was magical, moving and beautiful.

The audience left their  “audience” status at the doorway and were like tribal members participating in the flow of energy, love, and belief.

Pieces flowed and morphed into what was needed. Even the train cooperated by arriving at just the most opportune time and then as it moved on it cleared the space for whatever was next.

There was a full house and no empty chairs with 50 people present.  People even traveled from Phoenix to witness and be part of this wonderful event.

Comments were received after the performance that it was exciting, riveting, entrancing, and that we are onto something good.

Considering the feedback, and the way the cast and crew felt after the performance, we feel that we met and exceeded our goals!

Many talked of how they did personally “crack open” and about how excited they are from the process (even today, the day after.

Please know that if you didn’t get the chance to make it to Cracking Open, I.S.A. plans many future performances and you are welcome to be a part of them in whatever way you are called! 

Remember, you are LOVED! And you are also very welcome to join this tribe.

The spirit energies of ….

“The Fynn Family- A shamanic team consisting of Sister Warrior Healer, Brother Shapeshifter and Quynn ‘Oolah’ (one who balances)”,

Cracking Open-A Shamanic Evocation

On November 26, from 6:30-8:30, Quynn Red Mountain and Institute of the Shamanic Arts will present a multimedia, imaginative re-creation through shamanic evocation. With the power of memory and imagination, shamanic performers will use video, dance, art, rhythm, vocalization, sound, energy work, divination, song, clowning, light work, shamanic practices, and drumming to evoke messages of “cracking open” (transmutation). Due to the mature themes prevalent throughout this ritualistic performance, no children will be permitted.  Audience participation will be encouraged.

Together we will crack open and create anew.

Tickets: $7 – $13
