******Written on parchment tacked to a tree in Nocturne*******
Welcome all Shamans and Followers of the Spirits:
          Come join me in creating our circle in Nocturne at Noontime on the first full day of the gathering. So that each of us are represented please bring a token showing your connection to the spirits,animal or elemental, which will become a permanent part of the circle. To protect and anchor these tokens think of a story, or song that illustrates that connection. It can be about you, something you witnessed, or heard that inspires you. This ritual is open to anyone who follows the shamanic faith, be they Shaman or lay followers, and it will remain open for anyone who wants to join in the future.
Spirits guide and protect us,
