ISA Performers share their Experiences

On Saturday, October 20th 7 people who participate in ISA shamanic circles decided to offer a second public performance, called “The Plasmic Portal” in Tucson, Arizona.  Each person felt called to participate, even if/when she/he was called to do something publicly that pushed their personal boundaries.  Each “performance” was a conscious enactment of an aspect of each performer’s personal shamanic practice.

One of the performances was channeled, written, enacted and narrated by Alyson Greene.  In preparation for her participation in the 2012 All Souls Procession Walk on November 4, she wrote of her performing, and enacting, experience in The Plasmic Portal. See her Blog Post.

After walking in the 2012 All Souls Procession Walk, Quynn Red Mountain felt called to share her experience of embodiment during her segment in “The Plasmic Portal”.  See her blog post here.

When another performer feels guided to share about her/his performance experience, they will post here. Thank you for your interest, and your support!

We will create another performance when we feel guided to do so. 🙂

Rainbows Galore for Autumn Equinox

Recently, ISA (Institute for the Shamanic Arts) gathered on a magical and glittering golden day to welcome in Autumn.

Duck Anticipation

Rubber duckies were lined up (some kept falling over but they tried their best) awaiting divination. On the bottom of each duck, Quynn Red Mountain had written meaningful words. Participants had the thrill of choosing a duck and finding out what word was just right for them.

Rainbow Wand Making

People gathered round with Elisabeth Black and used their creativity to make rainbow wands.

Alyson Greene storytelling

Then we were treated to spectacular storytelling about the colors of the rainbow by Alyson Greene.

Finally, as the sun began to set we got to walk a rainbow labyrinth made by our official labyrinth maker Jacob Gardener. The setting sun glimmered and glowed and rainbow colors and blessings followed each of us as we wove through the gentle turns of the labyrinth.

What a fantastic Autumn Equinox!

Ancestor Night

 

On Friday, Oct. 28, the eloquent and very talented storyteller, Fetish Dragonfire (practitioner Patricia Bowne), gathered together other superb storytellers for a fun filled night.  Here is what Fetish reported about the event:

Ancestor Night:

A storytelling circle to share family and/or cultural, spooky stories.

Lots of fun, tasty treats and true ghost stories.

Hosted by Fetish Dragonfire and one of many alter egos, Grimalda the Troll.

Storytellers took us to ancient Ireland, Zanzibar, enchanted forests and grandma’s basement. We heard tales of near death experiences and serendipitous, Spirits.

I see more storyteller circles in the future. This was too fun!
