When the moon is full, it is as if the Great Spirit were upon the whole world.
– Black Elk
Ancient cultures and indigenous tribes perceived a link between the moon's glow and the nighttime cries of wolves in the winter forest.
In some Native American cultures, the howling of wolves during the January “Wolf” full moon was interpreted as a way for the wolves to communicate with the spirit world. It was believed that the wolves' howls were a means of seeking guidance or expressing their connection to the unseen forces.
According to Dr. Jonathan Dubois, the Wolf Moon radiates transformational power. By looking inward, embracing our authentic selves, and connecting with those closest to us, we can experience opportunities for self-acceptance and growth.
For humans, the physical act of dancing can serve as a form of prayer or meditation, allowing us to communicate with unseen forces through our body's movements.
In our February Shapeshifter 3-day workshop, we will embody the wisdom of the natural world, the animals, and the plants around us. This workshop weaves the 5Rhythms, the four directions, and the sacred ceremony to evolve and heal.
