NATURAL PEACE WALK
Peace meditation at the teepee to prepare us for the ceremonial walk. Our silent shamanic medicine walk will take us around the festival area. This is a peace journey to our Self, to the world. Each step is a pilgrimage for peace.
CEREMONY OF THE WHITE BEAR
This is a shamanic ceremony dedicated for the protection and honoring the large mammals, the furry beast friends, of forests. This is a shamanic drum journey and ceremony where we invite the white bear as our shared totem and power animal. The ceremony is based on a shamanic vision received in 2018, when a very rare white bear cub was born to a brown bear mother in Kuhmo, Finland.
SHARED DRUMMING SPACE
Bring your own drum to the shared space, as we dedicate our shamanic sounds to all the loving intentions emerging in our hearts in this time and place. You are also welcome to come and just listen, if you don't have a drum with you. Also other shamanic instruments, such as rattles, welcome.
