About the Event
The Flourish Shamanic Circle at The Moon Rooms is held bi-monthly, every second Friday. Please check the events page for upcoming dates. Dates for special ceremonies are listed seperately.
In these circles we work together in ceremony to connect with our guides and teachers of the light, the spirits of the four kingdoms and the four elements. We shamanic journey together to connect with our guides for healing for ourselves, the Earth and the ancestors. You do not need experience of shamanic journeying as you will be guided throughout.
Please note: All are welcome to the circle however drop-in is not available - please secure your place at each circle by booking your tickets online. Block booking in advance is also available to secure your place at upcoming circles.
- Yoga mats, blankets and cushions to support your head are available at the venue but you are free to bring your own. Some of the circle will be lying on the floor - shamanic journeying is often done lying on the floor - however journeying can also be done seated, whichever is most comfortable for you, and a mat, cushion and blanket are useful.

GUIDELINES & GROUND RULES
- It is advisable to have something to eat before you arrive - the work can sometimes be intensive!
- There are herbal teas available on arrival if you wish. Please ensure both the tea station and studio area are tidy before you leave. There is a kitchen close by on the same floor - cups and cutlery can be washed and dried here after the circle. Please return borrowed mats, blankets, cushions, drums and rattles to their place in the studio.
- Please arrive promptly for 7pm. If you are early, please wait quietly in the communal area outside the studio until the studio door is opened. Quiet preparations for the space are conducted before each gathering and attendees will not be able to enter the studio until these are complete.
- Late arrival: please note that you will be unable to enter the circle after 7.15pm - this is when we begin our sacred work. If you have arrived late, please wait quietly in the communal area until there is a suitable break in ceremony for you to enter the studio.

DURING AND AFTER THE CIRCLE
Sometimes during these events, there are personal spiritual messages intended for one or more of the participants - sometimes it is a message for all, sometimes it is for one particular participant and sometimes they don't come at all. If a message is intended, I have no control over what this may be or what this may mean*. Please indicate at ticket checkout whether you would like or not to receive these should they happen and be guided for you.
*Please note that I cannot expand on the these messages. I politely request that you refrain from enquiring for further information or explanation - the best interpretation is your own.
Be sure to drink plenty of water. If you feel a little light headed, eating a light snack is useful for grounding.
After our gathering, it is important to exit the studio directly after the space is closed. We exit the space in the same ceremonial manner as we enter it, with reverence, respect and the intention that it is for the purpose of our circle work only. Please move to the communal area for hugs (optional!), gathering your things and cheery cheerios. Try to get as much rest as you can afterwards and avoid alcohol or recreational substances.
I politely request that any questions relating to your own individual and personal healing be directed via a telephone consultation or a one to one appointment as I am unable to answer these at events.
