Saturday, September 15th: Participant-led Open Discussion

Shamanism and Altered States

In September, Sundance Metelsky will give a presentation on shamanism which will include the technique of a shamanic journey to seek assistance from helping spirits. This experience can be similar to Jung's explorations with active imagination. Participants will have an opportunity to take a shamanic journey to the sound of a drum beat.  

Sundance Metelsky is an existential shamanic mystic who has been walking the shamanic path since 1992. She has studied shamanism/shamanic techniques with Rena Yount, Tom Cowan, Nan Moss, David Corbin, Dana Robinson, Adam Davis, Mary Tyrtle Rooker, and with many helping spirits. She is a member of the Universal Temple of Spirits, the Sacred Women’s Circle, Sister Dreamers, and the Jung Society of Washington, where she is a regular attendee of classes and workshops. She has a BA in English Literature with a Minor in Psychology from the University of Maryland, and an MA in Liberal Arts from St. John's College Graduate Institute.

The Wisewoman group meets at 2:00 – 4:00 P.M. in the Jung Society of Washington library at the Palisades Community Church, 5200 Cathedral Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20016.  Arrive early so the session can begin promptly at 2:00. The doors open at 1:30 so participants can have an opportunity to meet & greet before the session.  Please use the Hawthorne Place entrance.  The Jung Society has moved an on-line registration with Paypal, so please register and pay on line, if you are able.  Otherwise, bring $5.00 cash or check.
