Freedom Rising Starts with a Shamanic BANG!

Freedom Rising Spiritual Community, a new Venus Rising congregation in Portland, starts off with a big Shamanic Bang! This past weekend, 80 intrepid, shamanic souls showed up for Breathe America/Breathe the World in Portland, OR, at the amazing Crystal Temple for a free day of Shamanic Breathing.  I felt truly blessed as I looked out over a sea of people breathing to transform their lives and open to a greater expression for themselves, each other and the planet.

"Breathe America/Breathe the World in Portland was an illuminating event. The Crystal Temple is built on crystals, creating a powerful vortex of energy.  Add Shamanic Breathwork with 80 people led by Founder, Linda Star Wolf, and you have a spiritual awakening event of the year!  Freedom Rising Spiritual Community pulled this one off with grace and ease thanks to its amazing community members.  Thank you, Star Wolf, for continuing to spread this beautiful, powerful work."
-- Pam Sophia Savory, Co-Founder of Freedom Rising Spiritual Community

During the break I had scores of people approach me to share how important this day of "free breathing" was to them.  People used such words as Magic, Forgiveness, Freedom, Peace, Hope and Joy.  More than one person used the words, "experiencing miracles" and "a renewed faith in the future."  When I became a breathwork facilitator many years ago I was asked to find a few words from my guides or inner source to take into my graduation.  I heard, and then spoke, these words:  "The purpose of the wand that is being given to you at this time is to spread a magic spell of hope upon the world!"  And so it is!

Pam Sophia Savory and Barb Magdalena Westover are the Co-Founders of Freedom Rising Spiritual Community and the National Co-Ordinators for "Breathe America/Breathe the World."  Thank you, Sophia, Magdalena, and all of the Freedom Rising Congregation and Shamanic Breathwork Ministers for an amazing day. I can't wait until the next one!

In Love, Gratitude and the Sacred Breath

Star Wolf's Welcome

My journey in life has been a spiral path of wholeness that continues to move through cycles of change taking me through many symbolic death and rebirth experiences, which I refer to as “shamanic portals of transformation.” I have learned more than I ever thought possible through a process I will share with you in my future writings, called the Shamanic Breathwork™ process, and the five initiations process called S.H.I.P. Once I have made sense of the lessons on my path and discovered the bigger picture, I am ready to pass on and share both my stumblings and my leaps along the way. In my own spiritual quest, I have always appreciated most those who shared their struggles and victories in an authentic way. That will be my humble attempt within the context of this blog.

I believe that we are all indigenous to this earth. I respect all my relations, whether they be human, animal, plant, mineral, visible or invisible ones. We are all related by the great web of life and sent here from the great beyond. Everything we say and do touches all parts of this magnificent web of creation. If I treat myself or anyone else unfairly, we are all affected in some way. Fortunately, the converse is true, as well. I am not perfect. If I am honest and have humility, I can admit that I will make mistakes as I seek to further evolve my conscious awareness. I can also make living amends by striving to change my negative thoughts and behaviors, and live from a more open-hearted connection to others and to myself. I have learned over time that all the changes I seek in the outer world must begin by looking within myself first. I have also learned that it is imperative that I have the courage to be honest with myself and to look at the “shadow” side of my personality. When I have had the courage to truly know myself better, the light and the dark, I have found the inner strength to change my life and shape-shift myself into the light of my true soul’s image.

From time to time I will share different programs and events that are being offered through my non profit organization (Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts) in my blog, as well as photos, videos and teachings, etc. But the main purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet to share the inner musings of my shamanic spirit and journey, and to hear yours as well. I look forward to connecting with all of you who intuitively know that you, too, are a valuable part of the shamanic process of conscious co-creation and evolution on the planet at this time. We each have a role to play and a soul purpose in the drama unfolding in our world today. Together we can create a better place for all beings on earth to live and leave a powerful legacy for those who are yet to come.

I believe we will all be remembered by future generations for the choices we make during this time of huge evolutionary change. In the words of the wonderful poem, “Summer Day,” by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

In Love, In Service, In Gratitude,
