Show 9 – Live from the Tree & Star Gathering

7th Annual Residential Animist & Shamanic Gathering & Conference


The Tree and Star Gathering was a call to gather the community together in the impossible and improbable song of love, in which we could dream something more beautiful and wonderful than before.

To reach for the Divine we must first reach for each other.


This Gathering was one of reconciliation, a lessening, a reducing, a bridging or filling of the void between one to another, between humans and the Earth, between the mundane and the spirit worlds.

It included, Morning Meditations, Healing Circles, Shamanic Smything , Sacred Ceremonies and Teachings, Men’s & Women’s groups, an abundance of Singing & Dancing and a Shamans Market.


The Gathering was honoured to have teachers from Canada, US, UK & Europe – Including amongst many:

Robbie Holz, Kathleen Murray, Guy Barrington, Katalin Koda, Jeff Stockton, Christina Pratt, Dr John-Luke Edwards, Rosemary O’Toole, Rob Murphy, Dr Lauri Shainsky, Jane Struver, Monique Wilson, Kat Naslas, Nikiah Seeds


Our Show catches up with a few of the teachers and attendees to engage in their passion and enthusiasm;
