Upcoming Classes

Shamanic
Retreat:  Connecting with our Cosmic Community 
  

Facilitated by Jeanne Marie Troge, MA


November 4, 5, 6th, 2011

Friday at 5pm to Sunday at 1pm

Camp
Knutson, Crosslake, MN

This
retreat is for all past and present students who have studied with me over
these many years and others. Many of you have asked for a reunion with further
training and this will be the focus of this retreat. While the training is
directed toward those who have studied with me, others are also welcomed as
long as they know how to journey and have a good working relationship with
their power animals.

In
this training we will work with community—our own and our cosmic community.
Prior to the beginning of the retreat I will ask you to ask your spirit helpers
for dreams that will direct the agenda for this weekend and ask you to share
them with me so that I can incorporate your wisdom into this training. I have
had a dream that has directed me to hold this retreat and to bring together the
“pavers”, those who will be paving the way for others into our new world.

In
this training we will talk about community and experience several group
journeys that connect us to one another in this world. We will also experience
connection with the cosmic world. It is my hope that we may have some direct
connection with the star beings who worked with our ancient ancestors and who
continue to work with us today. We will look at how shamanism can address the
earth changes and help to bring healing to all those who are holding onto the
old ways of being that will no longer work in our world. I don’t have the full
agenda yet but am working with my spirit helpers and star beings on bringing
forth a training that will speak to all our hearts so that we may be loving
vessels of light to all those who seek our help. The times require that we come
together. The time is now. If you feel called to this training, I encourage you
to attend, as we need you and the world needs you!

We
will learn through drumming, journeying, healing, dancing, singing, and deep
connection. You are encouraged to bring your healing tools and your musical
instruments. (drums, flutes, rattles, tambourine, etc.) Weather permitting we
will have an outdoor fire ceremony on Saturday night. I’m hoping for a clear
sky that we might also invite our cosmic community to dance around the fire
with us.

We
will be meeting at Camp Knutson in Cross Lake MN (by Brainerd). (

know it to be a beautiful, nourishing environment. Lodging accommodations are
excellent with single and double rooms. We also have beautiful workshop space
and good food that honors special diet needs. Cost for the weekend that
includes lodging, 5 meals and training is $255 for a single room, and $235 for
a double room. Registration deadline is October 10th. We need a minimum of 16
people to hold the retreat, so please register as soon as you are able. If we
don’t meet the minimum I will need to cancel. $100 deposit holds your space and
is refundable if you cancel before October 10th. Final payment is due October
10th. If you cancel after October 10th a $50 administrative fee will be
charged. If you have concerns about payment, please contact me. To register,
please send me an email at
earthdrummer@hotmail.com and I will send you a registration form.

Again,
I cannot tell you how important it is for us all to come together in community
to address the earth changes. Only you know if you feel drawn to attend this
retreat. Listen to your heart and if it speaks to you, please know it is meant
for you to attend. Many of us are waking up to who we truly are. It is time now
for us to step forward, speak from our heart and usher in the new world.
