Shamanic Dreaming Circle with Eddy Elsey
Wild Food Café, Islington
269 Upper St, Islington, London N1 2UQ, UK
This is an online gathering
When the sun is highest in the sky, and the days are at their longest - we are blessed with abundance. Abundance of time, of warmth, of love, of passion and freedom. In this dreaming circle we will call on these powers and their representatives - to give thanks for our lives.
Shamanic dreaming is an ancient technique that utilises a trance state to converse with spirit. Through the repetitive sounds of the drum, a technique called “sonic driving”, we can enter this trance state and journey through the dream world. The intention around this ceremony is to enter into a new season full of power and to form a relationship with spirit to guide us through this next phase in the wheel of the year.
Eddy will lead a short meditation, followed by drumming to allow each participant to enter a trance state. Once here, Eddy will play various instruments to support your own personal dreaming.
Please bring an offering for spirit. Examples of this are a coin, a ribbon, a candle or some fruit or whatever calls you.
This online gathering is intended to nourish and relax your soul. Find yourself a comfortable and quiet setting for the session. We ask that you have a pillow, blanket or yoga matt with you.

About the facilitator
Eddy is a Shamanic Practitioner from London and founder of Street Spirituality. Through his understanding and deep knowledge of Shamanic practices and how they can be integrated into the modern world, he believes that it is a merging of the Ancient and the new that will now help society push forward into greater awareness of the self. Also trained in Yoga, Tantra and Reiki, Eddy brings the elements of calm and love from these practices into the more tribal tradition of Shamanism. Through the use of Shamanic techniques, we can form direct relationships with our own spiritual allies and aspects of ourselves that can guide us to a higher consciousness. It is through the tried and tested, millennia old, use of Shamanic practice that we can begin to heal that which we have been told we cannot. Eddy is the resident Shamanic Practitioner at The Mandrake Hotel in London, and has also been featured in The Telegraph and The Metro. He runs Dreaming Circles around the UK, as well as Fire Ceremonies and Sweat Lodges from the woods in Bedford. His work on Masculinity has also been featured in GQ and Men’s Health.
