CD: Shaman Workshop by Lynne Sibley
Paradise Music (46) - Leading new age music label
Paradise music is a rapidly expanding "new age" music label founded by one of the leading and best known artists in this field, Llewellyn, and his wife Juliana, who is also a well respected and popular recording artist.
They have brought out CDs by well loved established artists as well as nurturing new talent and their range is growing all the time. They have also instigated new ideas such as the now popular "Workshop" series and also CD greeting cards (ie a greeting card with a CD inside the front cover).
Lynne has a convincing gentle voice, easy to listen to. She starts the workshop by talking briefly about the origin of Shamanism and how Native Americans used it. We are given some information about the tools we need for the four elements Earth, Fire, Water and Air such as plants, herbs, shells, candles and how to consecrate them to these elements. We also need to obtain smudge sticks made of sage or cedar and lavender and before starting each ceremony, smudge ourselves for protection. Use a bowl containing sand to extinguish it, it is advisable for safety. There are four directions starting with the East, South, West and North, each of them represented by an element, and we are shown how to meditate for each direction. The East representing the sun rise, new beginnings and new opportunities, the South, appreciation, the West, change and the North, wisdom. For each direction she gives us time to contemplate with some Native American music telling us to listen to our inner self for an answer. To follow on we can go outside with a compass and study each directions sitting under a tree and becoming one with nature applying what we have learned. The author mentions that if we want to pursue Shamanism books and more advanced workshops are available. I like this CD very much it makes me think of Feng Chui. It is helpful if you found meditation very hard to focus on the various elements.
