Shamanic Circles
   A nonprofit neo-shamanic organization initially founded by a group in the United States to support and foster community, with council members worldwide “as far apart as Japan, Ireland and Israel.” Its website (http://shamaniccircles.org) hosts the journal Spirit Talk: A Core Shamanic Newsletter, provides a list of drumming circles worldwide, and organizes community gatherings and workshops.
