I laughed, because I really like seeing old fun topics dug up and brought to the top of the list again.  I think some of the early topics we had on the site were fun, so thank you for digging through all the old forum topics here (looks like you're enjoying the site, very cool).

Re: WolfMontana's Forum

We have two (this year we're adding on a third) annual Howls for the Southeastern Therian community. The spring Howl is a 9 day primitive campout. We sit around the campfire and talk and eat and take side trips and hike, and if it's warm enough, we swim. We usually have a sweatlodge and a drumming circle. This year we're going to start having workshops - this year it'll probably be on herbalism, shamanic practice, and meditation techniques. For the Fall SEHowl we usually rent a cabin in the mountains for a laid back weekend - sitting around the campfire, eating, hiking, rockclimbing, etc. If we add on a Summer SEHowl, it will probably be near the Gulf and you can imagine what we'll be doing there. Then we usually have a couple of irregular weekend campouts during the year and I visit the Auburn Weres several times during the year. I might visit other Therians also. Some Therians take road trips. The NCHowl tends to do more ranging with stuff like carpet golf, go carts, etc.

The first Howl I went to was the NCY2K Howl. We camped out the first night and it was so cold we went back to the hosts mobile home the next day. Then we went to Mytle Beach and chased sea gulls and played carpet golf. Oh yeah,we ate - a lot.

Each Howl tends to have a different character.

Re: WolfMontana's Forum

Yeah, I would find the shamanic stuff fascinating, just recently bought some Tom Brown books - Nature Speak, Animal Wise. Some of it clicks, some of it really, really doesn't. I've been interested in the metaphysical my whole life, and there is always some new perspective that just blows my mind. There are as many 'answers' to the riddle of life, the universe and everything as there are people. big_smile

Re: WolfMontana's Forum

I read in another forum that you lived in Australia?  Now you live in the U.S.A.?  Very cool.  I noticed you used the word "mum" in a post, so I was thinking U.K. until I saw your post, what made you move to such different parts of the world?  Do you keep up with any Native American culture at all in Montana?  I find archaeology and anthropology fascinating myself.

Re: WolfMontana's Forum

smile My dad was in the air force, so we popped all over. My mum's australian, so we ended up over there for ages. I was born in Montana, then returned after uni. Worked in and around Yellowstone National Park (what an experience that was!) Then I fell in love with a dude on the east coast, so I'm here for a bit until I can return to my home. smile

I have a great respect for native american cultures, and a great sorrow for what they've lost. I used to read quite a bit about their spiritual practices. I have felt that the world would be a better place if we could look with the eyes and heart of a native person, but I also know civilization as a whole can't just drop the advances we've made (at a big cost, granted) and return to the very basics. Though I really, really thought we should there for a while! Hmm, lots I could talk about that, that'd be a looong post.

I love archaeology, though I don't follow it too closely. It's fascinating stuff big_smile I remember I went on a school tour in a museum in Sydney once and held an 8,000(?) year old vase. Blew my mind. Loved learning about Minoan culture, the palace of Knossos (BlueEyesWolf - Minotaurs!! big_smile), Pompeii smile What stuff were you interested in?

Re: WolfMontana's Forum

WolfMontana, the weekend Howls usually are attended by 8 or 10 people; the big 9 day Howl usually has 18 - 20. A couple of years ago about 25 people showed up at one time to the Spring SEHowl (30 in all). That's the largest Howl I know about.

As for shamanism, most of the shamans I know generally agree that you can't learm shamanism from  book - it's far too subjective. You really need to get with a practicing shaman and apprentice. THe books are more oriented toward general entertainment and scholarly interest than practice. The practice represented tends to be a bit flaky.

Were shamanism, although it often has many of the trappings of Native American shamanism, tends to lean heavily toward the Celtic or Central Asian core shamanism. It, in itself, doesn't necessarily have the religious trappings of pop shamanism that you usually see in the books. It's a practice - like a doctor, lawyer, or psychologist.

Contacts? Photoshop? What are these things of which you speak...

ah... bugger it, yes, that's a photoshop special. big_smile  If I could have arranged things a certain way before I was born (ie, hey god dude, I've got a great look I wanna shoot for, whatcha think?) I would have.

My eyes are actually blue, with a goldish ring around the pupil. smile

That would be cool if you really did have orange eyes. That would be pretty wild.

A wise wolf once say:

Beware zombies bearing gifts.


Remember when your zombies tied blue to a dentists chair and attacked him?!!?
