~ Healing Circle
of the most important aspects of the community is its function
as a Healing Circle. Spread out in many different countries, ISC
members connect through a group email to ask for help for people
they work with, or for friends or family. Whoever feels able to
offer help does so, and with over 100 members, the power in the
Healing Spirit Circle can get very strong and offer great support.
In this way we can all both give and receive, do what we can and
ask for what we need.
feel there is a huge potential in healing work done with and through
community. When we stand together in circle, we are able to help
in a way that is sometimes not possible when working alone. This
is an important focus for the ISC, and one which is constantly
evolving – how can we as a community offer help to the wider
world? How can we, when strong in circle, work with the Spirits
in a way that serves our Vision and send power to those who need
We have a strong sense of ethics and never work with people who
have not asked for it. We do not decide who needs help, but are
here if people come to us. We always work with the Spirits, asking
them what can be done and the best way to offer it.
The beautiful thing about working with healing in community is
that we do not always have to do everything ourselves. There are
at times many calls for help and healing, but not everyone has
to respond every time. Instead we do what we can, when we are
called to, and if we are not able to help, we know there are others
in the ISC who will. This powerful distance healing work has also
brought with it the gift of enriching many members’ shamanic
practices, taking us deeper on our healing paths.
is no formal way it works. If someone wants help, they usually
ask an ISC member who then emails the request to the community,
and whoever feels called to do so, offers help or healing in the
way that they are told to by their Spirits.
also do healing work with Nature and the Spirits of Place when
appropriate, or asked to by our Spirits.
If you would like to ask for help or healing but do not know an
ISC member, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and tell us what you need. Please do not ask for help for other
people, unless they have specifically told you they want you to
do so. It is not for us to decide how other people should live
their lives – only to live ours in a way that seems right
