THIS MENS CIRCLE IS PART OF BLACK BEARS, SACRED CIRCLES COUNSEL & CEREMONIES. THIS HAS BEEN RUNNING FOR DECADES TO EXPRESSES A NOVEL, CREATING A DEEPLY AUTHENTIC OPPORTUNITY FOR THE MEN OF THIS COMMUNITY TO ENGAGE CREATIVELY WITHIN AN INTENTIONAL GROUP, UTILISING SPIRITUAL PRACTICES OF TRANSPERSONAL, SHAMANIC AND METAPHYSICAL FOCUS AND DIMENSION.

Rare spaces. Psychologically and physically safe places to explore our individual and collective place in the cosmos within daily experience and relationship.

James is an empathic, life long, spontaneous, shamanic initiate, offering collaborative explorations of ritual consciousness. An accomplished classical musician, educator, writer and aspiring polymath who brings extensive experience as a trusted transpersonal mentor. He brings an informed and creative genius to ritual performance originating with traditional and neo-shamanic practices in the Four Corners area of Colorado and New Mexico with his personal journey progressing through a further decade of cross cultural projects in Arnhem Land and Central Australia.

  • Expansive and empowering occasions.
  • Tried and true ritual processes of self discovery and personal mastery.
  • Promoting skillful means and embodied presence.
  • A sacred space of attention and intention.
  • Exploring subtitle inner dimensions to inform and balance your journey.
  • Offered by an experienced and genuinely informed guide and mentor.

This “non-ordinary” experience is embodied and accessible within an agency of James’ vision quest totem spirit, Black Bear. An initiate of several N. American and Australian aboriginal traditions he shares this sacred counsel, ceremony and teaching in aiming to empower people, through specific ceremonies that include: talking staff counsel, drumming and shamanic journey, sweat lodge, vision quest and spiral dance rituals.

James has been in retreat, from public work, for the past 20 years, pursing creative projects in between parenting growing children within an extended family.
