Christo-Shamanic Transfiguration Ceremony 

Saturday, 3:00pm | River

One of the pivotal moments in the Jesus story is what we have called his Transfiguration. Jesus and three of his closest friends had gone to a mountain to pray. At some point clouds gathered around him and his clothing shown brilliantly like the sun. Then a voice spoke from the clouds saying: This is my beloved son, listen to him.
This experience helped prepare him for what he would soon experience under the hands of Empire during his final journey to Jerusalem.

We find ourselves in a such a pivotal moment in history.

Many of us have found our own paths leading to our personal ‘Jerusalem’ where we will have, or will, come face-to-face with an Empire of hatred, violence, and injustice. Through a Guided Shamanic Journey we will join the Christ on the Mount and will experience a personal and communal Transfiguration: an experience of high-vibrational Radiance; affirmation from Spirit of each one’s identity as the Beloved; recognition of each one’s call; and a blessing of each one’s work for the benefit of all Creation.

Narcizo Martinez

Narcizo Martinez, affectionately known as ‘Pastor Nar’ or the ‘Christian Shaman’ (XianShaman), is a life-long lover and follower of the Way of Jesus. Central to his spirituality are Two Foundational Principles: (1) Great Spirit has expressed itself at all times, in all cultures, and through all people; and (2) God is Love. Nar has traveled within multiple streams of the Christian tradition since he came to faith during the Jesus Movement. He delights in the ability to freely flow within a broad spectrum of spiritual communities, expressions and practices … Christianity, Paganism, Hinduism, Buddhism and especially Shamanism – which he sees as the root of all religious and spiritual traditions.

Nar is a lover and a healer and a hugger. His gifts of healing are largely expressed through touch (Sacred Touch); through ceremony (usually involving the Medicine Wheel); through aromatherapy and massage; and through Sacred Plant Medicines. He is also an artist/maker specializing is handcrafted jewelry, a podcaster, and, yes, an ordained minister.
