The Book of Ceremony : Shamanic Wisdom for Invoking the Sacred into Everyday Life

published by Sounds True.

This book was birthed from my love of ceremony and will be available on October 1, 2018. Pre-ordering is now available if you want to reserve a copy. I would like to offer to you a bonus excerpt from The Book of Ceremony. To access it, click on:

Here is a short description:

"Ceremony is a central part of human life and spiritual practice, yet in today’s world, many of our ceremonies have become rote or superficial. That’s why shamanic teacher Sandra Ingerman has created The Book of Ceremony—to help us recover the sense of deeper meaning and sacred connection that makes ceremony a powerful tool for transformation and healing.

"Ceremonies have always been used to create transformation,” writes Ingerman. “Performing ceremonies creates a bridge between the material world we live in and the world of the unseen, the divine, the power of the universe.”

In this practical guidebook, Ingerman shares essential instruction for ceremonies that combine the power of your intention, the support of family and community, and the aid of the spirit world. Join her for this invaluable guide for adapting traditional wisdom to create ceremonies for modern practitioners—including rites of adulthood, sacred marriages, honoring death and burial ceremonies, blessing a house, garden, returning the soul of land and a community, and many more."

The Hidden Worlds published by Moon Books

"Were those people in Isaiah's dream the same people from school? Popular soccer star Magda? George, who he'd never heard speak because he always left classes for special services help? Angry Rose, who was always in trouble for fighting? And why were there dead birds and fish everywhere? When the four encounter one another the next day by the same pond from the dream, they realize they've shared a dream and there really are dead birds and fish covering the ground! This leads to real-life adventures and more dreams as they discover a toxic waste plant disposing of poisons illegally. Not friends in the beginning, romance blossoms as they work together with their Power Animals to close down the plant."

In many ways society has created a sense of disconnection to a real sense of time

"In many ways society has created a sense of disconnection to a real sense of time. We live in an illusion of where we are in history and in the evolution of the planet. This artificial way of observing time and life creates more illness as what we need to do is once again enter the flow of life instead of separating ourselves from it. "

Power is the ability to transform energy

I just returned from teaching in Arizona. It was such a beautiful training in such a powerful place. The ancient energy in the land is so palpable!

Before I left for Arizona I wrote a post about singing love songs to the collective, Our group sang out on the land daily. We reached our hands up to the sky and sang our unique souls songs to the collective and to all life on Earth.

We received some amazing omens. One afternoon a rainbow formed around the sun with some orbs around it. There was not a cloud in the sky!

I did receive a strong message from the collective of spirits I am working with. They said I talk about power a lot. They reflected back to me the definition of power that I use in my trainings: “Power is the ability to transform energy”.

They said a power has entered into the collective causing destruction. If we want to do our true shamanic work then we must use our songs and dances as a power filled with a vibration of love and light that can transform and wake up the collective so that we once again honor life!

I hope you have been singing to the collective and being filled with beauty, love, light, and joy by doing this. For if so you are filling our collective with beauty!

How to Strengthen Your Health, Navigate Fear & Empower Your Community

Hi everyone!

The Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light work is so important to work with daily. When I first started studying shamanism I learned that viruses are created from negative thought forms. Think of all the negativity being flooded into our collective due to anger over world politics, the fires in the Amazon, and the fires in Australia.

The Amazon is seen as the lungs of the Earth. And now we have a virus impacting lungs.

Everything is truly connected. I think the changes we are seeing will continue until people not just wake up but shift priorities to life being more important than money.

We have great ability to maintain our health, support our communities with transfiguration work, and do our practices together to transform negative states of consciousness.

I am teaching a special course for The Shift Network where I am taking the most powerful practices of The Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light work and created a seven week course.

The course will have three levels. We will work on maintaining our personal health physically, mentally, and spiritually. We will perform transfiguration and other healing ceremonies to keep our global circle strong, and we will perform ceremonies for all of life. And of course we will look at how to share this work in our local communities if this of interest to you.

Not all the material will be new to you. But this course is a way to keep up our practices together keeping them alive and vibrant feeding their power to keep us safe, opening to bigger teachings, expanding our perspective, and joining together for ceremonial work. I will be guiding all the exercises and there are no prerequisites for this course.

The free introductory call will be on April 1 and the course will begin April 14 on Tuesday nights for 7 weeks. The sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend live.

As many of you know I have been in an intense initiation

which is a time to find one’s own spiritual strength without the help of hte spirits. During these times the spirits watch from the sidelines and cheer you on. But they can’t help. For you need to show your spirit can carry you through. The spirits are there when I teach and journey for clients but they are not available to me on a personal level. This has been a long initiation for me and if the world of astrology is correct I have more than a year to go. But I am 6 1/2 years through so I am walking forward. Now my spirits are back talking to me and guiding me. I received a great message from Isis yesterday, and I thought it might be helpful for some of you. She said follow your energy. This means only do things that your physical, mental, and spiritual are empassioned about. Otherwise you are getting drained. And this is one reason people are so tired. They are not following their energy rather than trying to fit into the energy of the collective and others. I have used the metaphor of the flow of the river since I wrote A Fall to Grace in 1997. This one metaphor can get you through any challenge of life. For a river’s flow is filled with the energetic states we have to deal with but the river shows us how effortless following the flow really is. And Isis said do your spiritual paractices to find inner peace. The lack of inner peace is holding many of us back. This is such an incredible time to focus on our spiritual work as a lot of the illusion of this world is dissolving before us. The unseen realms is where we can find stability and healing right now.

Please join me in wishing our circle a beautiful equinox filled with the power of love, hope, and optimism

for new things to be born and to let go of what needs to be composted back to the earth. For this is what nature is doing right now. Please join our circle in a simple but powerful journey to welcome in the equinox. I recorded a short session where you can show up with a drum, rattle, or other instrument to make some shamanic music with. You can even use two sticks to click together, or tap on a book, or create a rattle using stones or seeds and putting them in a bottle. By drumming, rattling, and making music together we will focus on asking the helping spirits to empower our circle and of course through this act be an active participant in radiating love to everyone in our group. We will do a spirit boat journey together to the sun. Click on this link or the video below to join in our equinox celebration. I have not been reminding you about our Shamans are Gardeners of Energy Facebook page. It is a wonderful way to be in service to our community by posting inspiring words stories, and images. Also I hope you are inspired by visiting the page and feeling uplifted. To join the Facebook group Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy, go to: The password is “Transfiguration”. This is the page I am posting on mostly now.

I have been having a new experience over the last few months.

I am starting to meet a new Teacher in my journeys. I won’t say more about her yet for we are just taking our time in learning about each other. I basically go sit with her in her village in the glorious snow and ice which I always crave to be in. I love the silence of the snow and ice. Anyway last night I went to visit her and brought her a gift. I looked into her eyes and I saw she had the whole of the universe in her eyes and moving within her. I realized we all that the universe in our eyes and the entire universe is dancing within us. It is something new I have to work with for awhile. But I look forward to what will be born working with this new Teacher.

A known fact is that teachers and writers teach and write about what they need to learn. ==

And I am certainly an example of that. Every book I wrote I really wrote for myself and was happy that anyone else wanted to read them. So as you know one of my core teachings of Medicine for the Earth is everything in the outside world is a reflection of our inner world. As above so below as within so without. I saw that with my new Teacher who showed me her eyes which has the whole world swirling within them. I have been reading a little more news which is not really my style. I get triggered so easily by all the suffering I read about. So this morning I started to think about the civil wars going on in the world. And at that point I got clearly that the most important action needed to take was to explore the big war going inside of me by my mind challenging my spirit and vice versa. If is a very interesting exploration of how we can really come back to the truth of what we need to do- plant a beautiful inner landscape, say loving words to yourself and believe them, and always trust the power of sprit. When we are truly filled with golden light and self love along with a magical inner landscape of the beauty of nature that is what we become and that is what we call into our lives.

I have to say I am having quite the experience of feeling the speeding up of time. I can’t believe I am doing the end of the year work for 2022 as it feels like it started yesterday. My equinox and solstice ceremonies seem like they are days apart. But it has been another wild and chaotic year filled with a great deal of challenges and suffering. For some it has been a great year. I know for myself I have never done so much work uncovering my hidden fears and anxieties that led to certain life long behaviors. I have done so much work to say goodbye to my past traumas knowing they sculpted me into who I am now. I even woke up one day recently saying there is not one person in the world I am mad at. And it was a true genuine feeling. So many of you have been doing the same deep journeys, meditations, therapy, really digging into what has burdened you in life that you don’t want to take into 2023. Why take more pain and suffering into a New Year? It is simply a burden like wearing a hundred pound rock on your back. Let it go! The pandemic and different events brought us into a true shamanic journey of dismemberment. Dismemberment is to allow ourselves to be sculpted into the beings we came here to be. Dismemberment brings us to our authentic self and allows us to remember our connection to the power of love and light and the true power of the universe. Then over time we are remembered meaning birthed again in this lifetime as new beings with a new consciousness and leaving old ways of living that don’t work anymore. I believe that right now we are in the in between times. The dismemberment is not quite over and the rememberment has not happened yet. Take some time as we welcome in a new time with new opportunities and possibilities. And really decide what you want your inner landscape to be filled with – trauma or memories of joy, beauty, and passion for life. And fill your inner landscape with colors, textures, images, fragrances, sounds, and tastes. And imagine all of us living in a world where we walk with love on the Earth. Feel it, breathe it in, see it, hear it as if it happening now. Step into your dream and live it as if it happening right now. And make it so by doing this. We have to create an invisible world of substance before our dreams are born in the Earthly realm. We are in an in between time. But this is a potent time to do your creation work with all your senses engaged to experience the world we wish to live in once the rememberment does happen. This is an important time to thank Earth, Air, Water, Fire (as the sun) for the life the elements bring to you. You cannot live without them so honor them every day and watch how life changes. Be grateful for your life. I know that is a hard one for many. And with everything I have gone through during my challenges I guess I finally got the healing power of loving oneself. When you can love yourself then you are remembered. Make your time meaningful and you will have a meaningful year. May we all join together to wish each other the best that life can bring for the New Year! On New Year’s Day have some fun and blow blessings to all of life and shine your authentic light. The photo I chose was a miracle that nature left me under my ritual tree. Miracles are always possible.

But today is the first day of spring! And this is a good reminder to take time on this sacred day to do some important journeys and ceremonies. The equinox like all sacred times is a good time to reflect on the spiritual work you have been doing to change your inner and outer world. I have been really focusing on how deeply I have continued all the Medicine for the Earth practices myself. They are my life and I do live them. But I get distracted and find myself not focusing on the frequency my words, thoughts, and daydreams. For whatever frequency I am communicating from either to myself or others is instantly manifesting. That is what the ancients have been trying to teach us. For the equinox you can journey or meditate just using the intention that you wish to meet the Mistress or Master of Dreams. And once there sit in a beautiful landscape in nature and with these kind, loving spirits talk about what you are creating from the frequencies you communicate with. What are you instantly manifesting into your life? And then discuss ways you can change this. For the equinox I recorded a journey you can perform on the equinox or when it works for you to be clear and do the work with your full intention and heart. I can tell you this will change your life and the world in positive ways if everyone does the work. Here is the link for the recording to join in our journey: I join together with our fabulous circle of courageous beings who keep doing their work ad pushing out the darkness so more light can pour in.

Hi everyone! As you know I keep trying to direct people to talking about our podcast the Shamans Cave. I know many of you like to chat about shamanism on FB. I have devoted and sacrificed 43 years of my life to practicing shamanism every day 365 days a year. There is no way that without practice and actually learning about what the practice of shamanism entails that you will grow into the work. This is a universal practice that dates back over 100,000 years. How much do you believe you can learn over FB? I just encourage you to read a book or take a course. If you are really serious check out Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstacy by Mircea Eliade. It is like an encyclopedia. But if you really want to know what the practice entails you have to read this book. And it is really important to know that to really get help from the helping spirits you are going to be asked to make big sacrifices in your life. So be ready for that!! Shamanism has never been an easy path. And traditional shamans can’t understand why a modern day culture would want to step into such a path that has so many initiations attached to the work. They believe we are crazy. Well the benefits are many as Renee and I share on the Shamans Cave podcast. So I invite you to join our Shamans Cave Podcast FB page where we can talk about our shows and the big questions in shamanism. And we will have each show up to discuss. The link is below.
