Drumming in Sacred Circle

We come together in Sacred Circle to connect on a deep level and enjoy a time of drumming, singing, chanting, sharing our stories and in co-created prayer.  Starfeather has been bringing people together in circles in the Seattle area since 1990.  As facilitator, she establishes and holds the bowl of energy of the gathering to create a special experience that is healing and joyful.  She is a ceremonialist recognizes the importance of empowering each gathering as a sacred event and ceremonial experience.  Calling in and honoring the energies of the Directions brings power and spiritual connection to the gathering.


Medicine Wheel Meditation

What began as a sharing of the Medicine Wheel in the early Covid days, has become an important part of Starfeather’s spiritual practice and teaching.  Guiding a “walk” around the Medicine Wheel on Zoom every Sunday continues to be a beautiful way to reset and come into balance as she guides this journey of honoring and gratitude.



Starfeather is active as a facilitator at the Woman Soul Gathering which holds an annual retreat for women, this year at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island, WA.  Also, she is a many-year presenter at the Women of Wisdom Conference in Seattle, WA.
