New book by one of our travelling companions, Elen Tompkins.

In our blog, "Notes From The Journey", Nancy's brother David Sherwood describes his style of shamanic journeying.

On the new Traveller's Joy Facebook page, you will find Nancy's review of the pilgrimage to Ireland in October 2015, as well as some sets of photos.

The photo of Nancy above right was taken Oct. 13, 2015 at Hill of Ward, Meath Co, Ireland. The name of the thunder goddess, Tlachtga, is on the gate. This is the place where Samhain is supposed to have originated in Ireland.

We are assembling a range of material in the new "Notes from The Journey" section. There are pieces that Nancy has written over the years about her shamanic practice, a gallery of altars, the archives of the Shamanic Convergence gatherings held in Nova Scotia from 2009-2012, books, inspiring quotations, etc. Over time, as patterns emerge, this section will take on a more defined shape. Meanwhile, you are welcome to explore what is there so far. A list of categories can be found below the menu once you are inside the new section.
