drumming circles to empower you
Journey into the subtle worlds and to your true nature... find beauty and light in the darkness... enjoy the songs of the drum...then go into stillness... listen to the sounds and words from your heart... simply be with yourself, recharge and heal.
Irène guides ceremonial drumming circles for groups, often in nature. These circles are both delightful and powerful; they help to let go of daily burden and to find strength for body, soul and spirit.
Shamanic drums are available. No pre-requisite knowledge necessary, beginners and advanced persons are welcome!
In general, the circles last two and a half hours, on an evening. From time to time, these gatherings may take place over a full day, in nature, from sunrise to sunset. Young people from the age of 14, with permission of their parents, are very welcome, as these experiences are a powerful opportunity to ground and connect with one's self.
Limited places for all empowering circles.
The participation for a drumming circle is 50 CHF per person.
journeying into subtle realms
Would you like to dream with open eyes? Do you wish to journey into other worlds and to regain your spiritual authority? Shamanic journeying is a way to reconnect with spiritual realms, to communicate with your spirit helpers and to receive answers for your daily questions. During this week-end you are guided to discover how you can expand your consciousness to perceive subtle worlds and to bridge those experiences with your ordinary reality. You will be individually accompanied so you may explore the unknown terrain and trust your senses.
The initiations take place in a group of maximum six people, permitting to focus on integration work of the experiences made. No prerequisite necessary; you may also return to refresh and deepen your former experiences.
This weekend is a good way for teens looking for their spiritual path to experience modified consiousness in a safe, drug-free setting, beyond dogmas. Here they can learn to ground themselves, to take off to spiritual realms and then to land again on their inner ground - and to integrate their experiences well into their everyday lives. Participation possible from the age of 16.
This residential week-end costs 540 CHF, without food.
Saturday from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. followed by an evening ceremony and Sunday from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
During four seasons and 13 moons, you will be guided to the depth of your own existence. There will be one intense meeting every lunar month. This cycle addresses people who already work in helping professions (in the medical or alternative medical field), and also all those who hear the call to go deeper into subtle vibrational realms as to bring harmony and healing in everyday's life (prerequisite: sound practice with shamanic journeying).
The explorations during these meetings will bring to light the gifts and talents of the participants, and will embrace amongst others:
- knowing one self through experiences and quests
- detecting and recognising rhythms and frequencies
- searching for the path to completeness
In resonance with nature you will be guided to condense your connection with the spiritual world, in the ways of ancient and holistic healing.
You will be invited to cross borders and run into the unknown. Your participation in this cycle therefore requires a good physical and mental constitution. Between the meetings you will need time to digest and integrate your experiences in your daily life. The cycle will be conducted simultaneously in French, German and English, depending on the native language of the participants.
The enrollments for the next cycle 2022-2023 beginning end of June 2022 can be made after an intitial meeting with Irène Elder.

dying as journeying on in the cycles of Life
Will you stay with me in the cold moments of my dying ?
Will you let me cross over without wanting to hold me back ?
Will you allow me to continue my journey ?
During our temporary stay on Earth, we are all embarked on a common vessel. During this journey, we go through all the natural stages of birth, initations, grwoth, life, dying, death. Death, the big hunteress, is the most faithful companion of life since our birth. Rather than seeing him as an enemy, we are invited to dance with the end of life as a birthing process into other vibrational realms. Death, in fact, is the moment of illumination.
Two workshop-days address to people who are interested in exploring the energies that accompany dying and death in personal, spiritual, physical and cultural aspects and will be explored in the actual paradigm of health-politics.
The ancestors in the circles behind us are our future.
The children in front of us are our past.
This workshop can also provide answers to people who are sensitive to the souls of the dead and also to those who are already familiar with end-of-life support and who would like to deepen and / or review their practices.
Small group, limited places.
The cost for these two days is 500 CHF per person.
