Shamanic Depression Support Group: For adults suffering from depression, anxiety, stress and burnout
This is an on-going program which repeats 4 times a year. The next group starts on Friday Sept. 25th and runs every Friday from 7 to 8:30 pm for six weeks until Oct. 30th.
Cost is $80 or sliding scale.
How was depression, stress and anxiety treated before pharmaceuticals? What do people do in places where there is no pharmacy support or psychologists? There are many ways to support treatment of depression, burnout, stress and anxiety that do not involve medication and these techniques can also improve results of medication without counteracting it.
This is a six week course designed to teach Shamanic technique that can support people suffering from anxiety, depression and stress. So many people are burdened with fear of the future, hopelessness, crippling stress and uncertainty. Sometimes they are advised to meditate as a way of coping but it is virtually impossible to meditate properly when depression or stress zaps your energy. Shamanic technique includes drumming and other techniques that can be easily incorporated with little or no cost into a busy life.
This course does not replace medication and therapy but will teach shamanic techniques that can help you to regain some connection with yourself and with happiness.
This picture is of our land and some of the work will be done there weather permitting though out the year.

What people are saying about this course:
"In Shamanic Support Group for Depression and Anxiety, Meri has created a welcoming, friendly, and supportive energy that made it easy to share reflections on the tools she taught us. I gained mental health strategies like drumming and guided visualizations that helped me cultivate calm on the inside. I especially loved learning how awareness of the spirit of nature, animals and loved ones in spirit form can support us unconditionally in pursuing a self-healing path. Thank you sincerely, Meri!" ~Kalyn Sloan
