Welcome to Aahara Spiritual Community

Sheltering In Place–Coming to an End?


We hope that you are all well, safe and secure. We are now in Phase III in the State of Illinois. This means that we can gather in groups of 10 or less, wearing face masks and maintaining a distance of 6 feet from each other.

This restriction still makes it difficult for us to hold some of our workshops in person. Thus we will hold events online as needed.

We will continue to keep our community engaged, growing, learning, sharing our lives and supporting each other and ourselves.  Aahara has made a tremendous difference in our lives, and we will continue to provide events that support our community. Our commitment to you is strong and creatively evolving through this global pandemic and time of great change.

We will continue to offer weekly online zoom meetings on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. through the month June.  This is an opportunity to connect with your tribe and receive a teaching, guided meditation and sometimes a Shamanic journey or Shamanic Breathwork. Email Carley at carleymattimore at gmail.com if you would like to be included. These have been wonderful ways to connect and feel the support through these changes.

You will see that we have begun to assign tentative dates to events that we postponed.  If all goes well we hope to resume our in-person workshops as things unfold. The shamanic nature of life on earth is showing itself with greater clarity and force than ever before.  We are being called, now is the time, we are the ones we have been waiting for.


We are in unprecedented times with much uncertainty as things we took for granted are dissolving and reforming in new ways as we move toward a new normal. It is an initiation the whole world is going through. We are in a rapid period of expansion and contraction as we evolve to new levels. This can be extremely challenging. We do better when we have each other to lean on to inspire, support, collaborate and co-create with.

We want to offer an opportunity for us all to feel the support of the Aahara Community by offering a COMMUNITY call at least once a week to support you in grounding, centering and aligning as we walk these shamanic changes.

These calls will be on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Central Time. We will send you the link and you can sign in, connect with your tribe, receive a teaching, guided meditation and sometimes a Shamanic journey or Shamanic Breathwork.

We grow and thrive as you share your own insights and gifts with us. We co-create as we collaborate with each other. We will also record these for those of you who would like to participate but are unable to be on the call so you too can receive this support.

We are all in this together and want to share support and love during this SHIFT.
