Join British Shamanic Practitioner Eddy Elsey for a Shamanic Dreaming Circle Ceremony at Indaba.
A Dreaming Circle is a ceremony where the veil that hangs between this world and the Otherworld can be lifted, and we can move into a space together where those worlds merge.
The ceremony begins with calling the directions to us. The powers of the East, the South, the West, the North, the Below, the Above and the Centre. This puts us at the centre of life, even for the moments we will journey together - creating a safe place for healing and surrender.
You will then be led into a trance with the drum. Cultures around the world for millennia have journeyed their way to the Otherworlds riding the monotonous gallop of an animal skin drum. You are free to dance, to move or to rest - the way you travel is up to you.
Once we have lifted the veil, Eddy will sing his own medicine songs, and parts of the ancient Saxon pagan rune poem, accompanied by the 6 stringed Saxon lyre. Various other instruments from the ancient past of Europe will be played, including the Norse Tagelharpa and the Bukkehorn.
You will be called back when the time is right, with an opportunity to share your experience.
Eddy Elsey (He/Him)
Eddy is a Shamanic Practitioner from London and founder of Street Spirituality.
Through his understanding and deep knowledge of Shamanic practices and how they can be integrated into the modern world, he believes that it is a merging of the Ancient and the new that will now help society push forward into greater awareness of the self.
Also trained in Yoga, Tantra and Reiki - Eddy brings the elements of calm and love from these practices into the more tribal tradition of Shamanism.
Through the use of Shamanic practice, we can form direct relationships with our own spiritual allies and aspects of ourselves that can guide us to a higher consciousness. It is through the tried and tested, millennia old, use of Shamanic tradition that we can begin to heal that which we have been told we cannot.
Eddy also runs Men’s Groups throughout London, focussing on remembering the beautiful and potent traits of Masculinity through ritual, conversation and community.
