ISC runs a number of community events. Some are open to members
only, some are open to anyone who has a shamanic practice. Since
2008 we have Open Meetings to help us
plan community life, as well as Summer Gatherings
and Winter Feasts which help us to enjoy
each other and our shamanic work.
There is also a calendar showing what
is coming up over the next few months, including the activities
of individual ISC members, many of whom run their own workshops
and events outside of the ISC.
At the moment, the ISC holds 1-2 planning meetings per year, to
come together and talk about what we want the community to do,
work on issues presenting themselves, and ask the Spirits for
help and advice. Often the meetings are in England (London, Scarborough
and Birmingham) but sometimes in other countries. The last meeting
was held in Sweden and the next will be in London:
- 4 March 2012, London, England
Saturday 10am - 6.30pm ; Sunday 10am - 5.30pm
Free. ISC funds pay for venue costs and refreshments.

These meetings are for ISC members **
If you are not yet a member but have trained with the SCSS,
you are welcome to come along to the
meeting and join as a member on the day. For more
info, see the Membership pages.
way the meetings work ~ each time different members offer
to host a meeting, taking responsibility for making it happen
and for holding it energetically. Any member can help to host
a meeting (teams of 3 are often good) and any member is welcome
to suggest a piece of work for a meeting by getting in touch with
the organisers. Hosting a meeting also means you share a report
from it afterwards, so the whole community will know what happened,
even if they could not come. When we meet we are aware that the
circle in the room represents the whole ISC circle and try to
find ways to connect with those who can not be there physically.
you are an ISC member, you can log in to the ISC
Members' Forum and get
more information about the Nov meeting and how to get involved.
You can also read in-depth reports from previous meetings to see
what Spirit work has been done in the past, what was decided and
how things have developed and grown.
