The Shaman Journey Circle is a place for shamanic practitioners and students of shamanism to meet, journey and share community. We have access to so many wonderful helping spirits and guides who love us unconditionally and joyfully. Through listening to shamanic drumming and rattling, we’ll explore different shamanic worlds. Shamanic journeying is an adventure. Your intention for the journey serves as the focus, but there’s no telling in advance where it might lead or what you might experience.
Everyone can learn to journey!
Each month, we’ll meet for three hours, opening with smudging, calling in the directions and creating sacred space. We’ll have time for two journeys and the sharing of the journeys with a partner. We’ll end with a closing circle.
- journal and pen to take notes
- a scarf to cover your eyes while journeying
- comfortable clothing for sitting and lying on the floor
- water bottle
- your good intentions

Marla is very welcoming. She guided the circle with grace, creating a comfortable atmosphere. The journey process was inspiring; it reconnected me to something I'd forgotten and provided guidance just when I needed it. I'd recommend this even if you are just curious, approach it with an open mind and you might be surprised!
I have joined the shaman circle three times. I must admit that I did not believe it in the beginning. It became more and more meaningful to me in each journey. I have tried six journeys with Marla. Each was a different and unforgettable experience. I learned a lot from Marla. My journeys helped me so much. I am looking forward to the next journey. I advise everybody to try it at least one time. ~ Emre
Attending the circles 5 times in İstanbul and going to use my own imagination with a group of İstanbul and international people in Istanbul have all been awesome experiences! Each journey is very creative during the hours that we spend together in the circles. Marla and Logan share with us a possibility of a new world and also acceptance with the way we are, which is not easy to find in the world we live in. I recommend these gatherings & circles to any person who wants and believes in a better world or who just simply wants to accept the world as it is. Thank you all. ~ Aybige
Marla has orchestrated this lovely ritual in such an elegant way. As the ceremony came to a close, I felt love, friendship and an ocean of peace. My heart was glowing and I knew my answers. I reconnected with myself. Marla is a wonderful guide who takes you by the hand and lets you play and explore the ancient ways in a very safe and cozy atmosphere. A must try. ~ Cigdem
The Shaman Journey Circle is like a coin which has two sides. There are two very different experiences. First, definitely and literally you feel yourself full of peace and joy. Even if you don't understand what shamanism is, or what'll happen. Marla's great stories give you a feeling you're in wonderland as well. This part is especially heavenly for those who can feel the energies. Second, you can become really suprised about the power of your imagination. It's your imagination, yes, but everything is also real. You receive messages through your imagination. Do not underestimate this experience because it really happened to me. Everytime I joined a circle, I got better messages and it really helped me in my daily life. Maybe you'll get a message from an angel, an animal, a mystical creature, an ancient people or an ascended master; it doesn't matter, just notice what happens and it'll be the best for you. ~ Serkan
The Shaman Journey Cirle is the type of event that i have been searching for, for a really long time. Practicing a spiritual vision as an activity improved my feeling of self actualization. I have been able to find valuable clues to help me move forward on my spiritual path. During the circles, the degree of involvement is up to you. Besides, Marla's wonderful energy takes away any judgmental thoughts you might have, which makes it possible for different types of people to reach a higher state of consciousness all together as a group. ~Yiğit
