Adelyn recently stayed at Crow Moon Healing with her parents. She was more than disappointed to discover that I don't share my internet service with guests.
She wasn't interested in staying up by the fire and enjoying the stars, she wanted to be on her phone.
"People come here to unplug," I offered to the sad girl.
The next morning Adelyn was up bright and early, bored already before the day began.
Finally, she asked, "What does unplug mean?"
"It means to take a break from internet, telephone and TV," I explained.
She sat in a chair across from me and sighed.
I suggested we go see what the animals were up to and she was bored enough that she decided to come along.
The pig, goat and chickens were all in the yard foraging. I showed my friend where the treats were and she used the treats to become acquainted with the crew. William, whose normally a bit shy with kids, became smitten with the girl, even allowing her to put an arm around him in a gentle hug.
Adelyn's energy shifted as she began talking and connecting with the animals gathered around her.
"William you're my friend," she crooned to the portly porker.
My heart expanded as I witnessed this magical moment of a young girl unplugging and being in the moment.
I invite you to come and "unplug" with us at Crow Moon Healing!
Up Coming Events at Crow Moon Healing Bed and Breakfast
1) "Connecting with Divine Spirit through Shamanism"
A two-day basic shamanism workshop led by Debra Morrill
November 17-18 2018
Saturday, November 17 from 9am-9pm
Sunday, November 18 from 9am-4pm
From the beginning of time, indigenous cultures on every continent shared a shamanic spiritual view. Our forebears lived close to the earth, deeply in tune with her cycles and seasons, the elements and nature. In this connection, they found their spirituality. They believed that every living being had a spirit- not just people, but also animals, trees, stones, and plants. They commonly traveled into the spirit realm to communicate and interact with power animals, spirit guides and nature spirits. Through exploring the basics of shamanism, we can rekindle our connection to the divine and develop our ability to communicate directly with Spirit to receive guidance on our spiritual path.
In this two-day experiential workshop, you will:

2) NEXT 2.5 YEAR SHAMANIC MEDICINE WHEEL/TRAINING PROGRAM BEGINS FEBRUARY 2019
The Shamanic Path: a 2.5-year shamanic medicine wheel and training
program based on core shamanic healing techniques led by Debra Morrill
Begins February 1-3, 2019, and meets one weekend every three months
Begins Friday evening at 7 pm and runs through Sunday afternoon at 4 pm
Crow Moon Healing • a spiritual B&B located in rural Sauk City, WI
"The Shamanic Path" is a 2.5-year medicine wheel program combining personal healing work and training in core shamanic healing techniques. It brings about lasting growth and personal transformation. It is designed for:
* those who want to use shamanic techniques for their personal healing journey
* those who are drawn to shamanism to deepen their connection with Spirit
* those who wish to begin a shamanic healing practice (formal or informal) or to fold shamanic healing techniques into an existing alternative health practice (such as massage or reiki)
Walking the medicine wheel is a way of shedding old patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. When the unhealed wounds of the past are brought out into the light for healing, deep transformation results. In doing this work, we embody more of our True Self. Shamans are often referred to as "wounded healers." In combining a training program along with personal healing work, we make medicine out of our past. Healing ourselves restores harmony to our being, allows us to practice the work with integrity and compassion, and prepares us for being of service to others.
"The Shamanic Path" training program meets 10 weekends over 2.5 years - one weekend every three months. It begins February 1-3, 2019, and takes place at Crow Moon Healing Bed & Breakfast in rural Sauk City, WI. The base price of each weekend is $440 (which includes lodging and breakfast). Each weekend begins Friday evening with opening circle at 7 pm and runs through Sunday afternoon with closing circle at 4 pm.
This training program is appropriate for intermediate experience levels. Some pre-requisites are required, such as the ability to receive information during shamanic journeys and prior attendance at a two-day basic shamanism workshop.
There is a practicum option available for participants who wish to go into shamanic practice working directly with clients.
For more information about "The Shamanic Path" medicine wheel/training program beginning in February 2019, please request a brochure by replying to this email with your physical mailing address.
