Traveling Shamans Camp 2019 is a free admission 3-day festival/camp for shamans, shamanic artists, practitioners, students, friends, and the shaman curious. This gathering of shamans features ceremonies, sweat lodges, a medicine wheel workshop, journeying lodge, drum circles, shamanic trance dance * Dances of Universal Peace and more. Enjoy the magic of earth-based ceremony, dancing & drumming with all our relatives. Grab your drum and a water bottle and head to the Fairgrounds in Hotchkiss, Colorado July 26-28.
Open Mic dancers, poets, storytellers, and musicians will be performing at the Main Stage (behind the green bus) every day of the camp from noon to 5pm. Main Stage will also be the location of Shamanic Trance Dance on Friday and Dances of Universal Peace on Saturday. Contact Julia for promotional support (video previews with TalkStory.Media) for any shamanic performance, healing session, or other activities you plan to offer at open mic.
Human Beings have always longed to know the future. Some are gifted with prescience but all of us can learn to use our intuition to gain insight. Divination methods from many cultures will be explored in this workshop. Learn about Rock Reading (Native American), Scrying (Celtic), Throwing the Bones (African), Runes (Scandinavian) Card and Cloud Reading to name a few. You'll discover which method works best for you.
Description coming soon!
Sweat lodges will be led by native elders at 8pm each night of Camp except one gentle lodge to be held at 8am on Sunday morning.
This workshop will be taught by native elders about a week before the camp. If you can come a little early to help out, we'll find a place for you to camp and feed you while you're here.
