Claire's house, Sugar Hill, NH
Mother Earth Bids us! Come, celebrate the bursting forth of Spring; the bursting forth of our own new Springtime creativity, and our own renewed energy for life.
We honor our own cycles of life when we pay attention to the seasonal energies --
With the coming of the Light at Winter Solstice, we planted our seeds of intent. As the Light became brighter, those seeds grew.
At Beltane, we feel our fertility, and are ready to birth those creations that have been gestating inside us throughout the cold months of winter.
And so we gather in celebration to engage in ritual, Journey, song and dance!
Bring a dessert to share as an ending to our festive celebration!

Spiritual Mentoring with Claire
Many of you have asked what opportunities there will be for us to explore spiritual work together. One new opportunity I am offering is individual spiritual mentoring.
Each spiritual mentoring program will be designed to meet the personal needs of the individual signing up.
The program may include, but will not be limited to:
- Monthly telephone (or in person) consultations
- Personal spiritual practice and ritual
- Information about Sacred Circles, and getting the most out of being in them
- Training in, or review of, Shamanic techniques
- Opportunities to come together with others in the individual mentoring Programs to share in some of the work
Payments will be monthly, and will be determined on the basis of each individual program.
I am excited about this new mentoring opportunity for us to work together around your individual spiritual needs. For years I have been teaching a way of spiritual life that is powerful and healing on all levels of living! I look forward to sharing this with you in a very personal, creative way!
For more information please call Claire at (603) 823-5566
, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Full Moon Journeying!
Another opportunity for you is Full Moon Journeying!
Please note - the cost for the monthly Full Moon Journeying will be discounted for those who are engaged in a Spiritual Mentoring Program with me.
A. Each month I will email a Full Moon Agenda. This will include a brief explanation of the month's full moon, and any intuitive information that I am inspired to share. An "agenda" will also be included.
B. At the Full Moon time ( on the day of the Full Moon, the day before the Full Moon, or the day after the Full Moon), you will Journey with the intent of the agenda, and email me your Journey. (You will Journey on your own - this is not an "in person" group experience).
C. I will compile all the Journeys that I receive, and send them to everyone who has signed up for this experience. I ask that people not respond to individual Journeys, but use the Journeys for your own insight and spiritual growth.
D. There will also be an opportunity for a group teleconference call. It is not necessary to sign up for this part of the experience, but it will be available at least once every 3 months.
Logistics and Cost:
The Full Moon Journeying will begin in October. You will sign up for, and pay for, 3 months at a time - Oct thru Dec / Jan thru March / April thru June. There will be no Journeying group in the summer months.
The cost is $90 per each 3-month period.
There will be an additional cost for the teleconference.
You may sign up for a Spiritual Mentoring Program without signing up for the Full Moon Monthly Journeying;
You may sign up for the Full Moon Monthly Journeying without signing up for a Spiritual Mentoring Program;
If you choose to sign up for both, the Full Moon Monthly Journeying will be discounted.
Deadline to sign up for the next 3 months of the Full Moon Monthly Journeying is March 31, 2013.
Please send a check to Claire von Karls, PO Box 803, Franconia, NH 03580.

Winter Solstice Celebration
Traditionally, this has been a time of reunion -- a time when those who have gathered in circle over the years return to enjoy the fellowship of our community. We meet to Journey, and to share in the "journeys" of our lives. In this way we acknowledge the Dark, and help bring in the Light of this special season

Shamanic Dreaming Weekend Workshops
Once or twice a year, Claire and her husband and co-therapist, Fred Von Karls, present a weekend workshop focused on an aspect of Shamanic Dreamwork. Our weekends include deep spiritual work and play, creative experiential activities, opportunities for relating to nature, personal reflection time, and time for community connection. Participants report that these weekends are transformative on many levels, and say they look forward to returning each year.
This year's theme was:
Shamanic Dreaming: Spirit of Life and Death
We danced to the drumbeats of life and death, and felt their sacred interconnection. The dance of life is incomplete without the journey of death and all that is beyond. As we acknowledge, accept, and embrace this interconnection, we expand our possibilities for living a deeply fulfilling life, and taking our place in the web of all existence!
Our transformative experience of life and death included:
- Discovering our bone stories
- Journeying to our own personal cave of dreams
- Mapping our souls home
- Exploring th land of the dead
- Visioning the mysteries of the beyond
What participants said about our last Shamanic Dreaming Workshop:
Claire & Fred, I am always amazed by your weekend workshops. With each workshop you guide us to look deep inside ourselves to face our fears. In the process we discover the courage, the strength, the love & forgiveness we did not know we possessed. We are able to not only face our fears but to overcome them. We emerge from our weekend together stronger, more confident, with a greater capacity to live life more fully, more joyfully, to love more deeply. Thank you!!
It was wonderful dancing in the dark and the light with you and Fred.
Thank you for a wonderful, meaningful, powerful workshop. The work we do, the connections we have, the support we give, the tears we shed, the laughter we enjoy....good medicine. A weekend talking about death and dying... and I come home rejuvenated and ready to live better. To be with my Dream Dancer family and not only talk about death and dying, but make our own death plans, experience our own death, and hear the mourning of our dying....so powerful.
How special and meaningful this weekend has been for me. I am in awe of the journey and I thank you and Fred so much for the adventure that you took us on.
My heart felt so free and full as I reflected upon our deep journey together. The feelings of being connected are wonderful and hopefully long lasting.
Thank you so much for guiding me through your workshop, "Shamanic Dreaming: Spirit of Life and Death." Two words come to mind as I think about my experience in this workshop: Moving and Powerful. You two are wonderful teachers! But, you provide me with more than just useful information, although you give me much of that. You teach me the importance of feeling my own personal emotions, whatever they may be. You also teach me the value of expressing these feelings. Your workshops help me to tap into deeply felt emotions. This moving carries over into my daily life as I acknowledge and embrace my feelings and allow them to guide me in wonderful ways! You also teach me the importance of feeling and claiming my own personal power. You show me how expressing my creativity helps me to rediscover my authentic self, and thereby helps me to claim my personal power, and hold on to it! Thank you, Claire and Fred!
I had a great weekend and so enjoyed both of you and seeing all my friends. I have not yet fully reflected on transformation but I am sure it is happening. Thanks so much for including me in your incredible healing community. More will be revealedů
Thank you so much for this beautiful weekend! And, thank you and Fred for all you do!!! The Spirit of Life and Death was awesome!!! -- Lucile
Dream Dancers 2011 to 2012
As Dream Dancers we delve deep into the mysteries of our dreams for personal growth, spiritual enlightenment, and empowering healing information.
Over the course of eight months, we meet personally in circle two weekends in New Hampshire, and stay connected on a monthly basis thru Dreamtime adventures including Dreamwork agendas and Full Moon Journeying. In addition, each month we will meet in circle through a teleconference. (Individual Dreamwork sessions will also be available.)
This year's Dream Dancer theme is "Dream Dancing: The Last Dance!"
We focus on both personal and circle Dreamwork. As always, seasonal energies, healing ritual and ceremony, and Shamanic Journey are important elements of our work and play. We enter the mysterious realm of the Dream, dance to the rhythms of its music, and learn the language of our souls.
The Dream Dancer Program is changing, and likely ending after this next year. It may transition into another format, or it may come to a close all together. If you have been considering being a Dream Dancer over the years, this may be your last opportunity to be a part of this very special circle!
Let me know of your interest, and I will send you more specific information about format, dates, and commitments.
