Shamanic Journeying with Dave Beck
***Currently on pause due to COVID-19***
The 2nd Friday of the Month from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at 57 Park Ave, Poughkeepsie NY 12603.
*Please note, for those who have allergies, our class space is shared with cats.*
Shamanic Journeying is an ancient technique used to deepen one’s spiritual connection. Through rhythmic drumming, David will help us to transcend our normal conscious state and journey to meet the many helping spirits that are always surrounding us. Join us once a month to practice & delve into a deeper understanding of Shamanic Journeying with the support & guidance of David Beck.
You Will Need
You do not need to have any previous experience in Shamanism or journeying to enjoy & benefit from this circle, as this gathering will be supportive to newcomers and seasoned journeyers alike.
Participants should bring a blanket or mat to lay on, a bandana or blindfold, and a notebook to record their journeys.
Newcomers are always warmly welcomed and encouraged.
A Note From David
“In our modern world, there seems to be so much conflict between people regarding spiritual beliefs. I believe that the technique of journeying holds one key to this problem. I have journeyed with people from many different backgrounds and although we “see” different things, we share a common bond. If the concept of journeying was used as a way for all faiths to deepen their spiritual connections, it would open an area of shared experience that each could understand. This would allow them to meet in a place of equality and possible even open their perspective. I hope that our world can come together and if journeying can be a bridge, I say we start building it today.”
Once a year, David also facilitates a ceremonial drum-making workshop. This usually happens in the Summer or early Fall – be sure to follow our Facebook events or subscribe to our DG Newsletter below to learn when this magical and meaningful event will take place.
