Alaskan Shamanism

Alaskan Natives have a special connection to the land, and a kinship with the animals with whom they share that land. Before the introduction of Western culture, the spiritual connection between the people and they land occupied was called "shamanism."

Alaskan Shamanism is centered around the animals found in the area. Through the use of myths, stories, and ceremonies, these animals are personified and their spirits made tangible and deeply woven within the Native Alaskan people today. Through the shaman, the spirit world is connected to the natural world. A shaman is a mediator, healer, and mouthpiece for the spirit world. Although shamanism is no longer popularly practiced, it was, and continues to be, the heart of the Native Alaskan people.

The quality of life in traditional Alaskan societies was almost totally dependent on a people’s relationship to their wildlife and habitat. Therefore we should not be surprised that the natural realm took on sacred meanings for Native people, who infused it with ceremony and ritual. Why is the Raven the central figure in many traditional Native beliefs about creation? Why do Iñupiaq whaling families traditionally give a drink of fresh water to the head of a just-butchered whale and other marine mammals and push it back into the sea? Shortly after killing a black bear, why do Koyukon Athabaskan men hold what has been described as a potlatch-like feast honoring the bear? Why are all Tlingit clans totemic, with clan crests showing a specific animal as emblematic of the clan’s mythical origins?

Aleuts
The religion of the Aleuts was an offshoot of the prevailing shamanistic beliefs common to the northern Eskimo and tribes of northeastern Asia. They believed in the existence of a creator of everything visible and invisible, but did not connect him with guidance of the world, and paid him no special worship. They acknowledged two kinds of spirits who determined the fate of man in every respect.

The earliest Aleuts worshipped light, celestial bodies, and the elements. They believed there were three worlds, to which they ascribed being and action. The first or highest world has no night or evening, and many people live there. The second or middle world is the earth. The third is subterranean and called lowest world.

The aboriginal Aleuts had no temples or idols, but in holy, prohibited localities known as awabayabax, they made offerings to invisible spirits. Such holy places were found in every village--usually a mound, a crag, or prominent place, forbidden for women and young men to visit, to gather grasses for basketry, or to take away stones. If this rule was violated, such infraction was followed by terrible "wild" disease, speedy death, or at least insanity. Old men could visit these spots at certain times--only to make offerings.

Shamans, as intermediaries between the visible and invisible worlds, between men and spirits, were acquainted with demonology and could foretell the future and aid sufferers. Though they were not professional obstetricians, yet as magicians their services were called upon in cases of difficult childbirth. Shamans cured the sick, foretold the future, and brought success in hunting and warfare.

Long before the advent of the Russians, the shamans predicted that white men with strange customs would come from beyond the edge of the sea, and subsequently all Aleuts would become like the new arrivals and live according to their habits. They also saw, looking far into the future, a brilliant redness in the sky like a great new world, called arialiyaiyam akxa, containing many people resembling the newcomers.

Aleuts believed death stemmed from both natural and supernatural causes. The dead were treated with mummification and cave burial of high-ranking men, women, and children, burial in special stone and wooden burial structures, and interment in small holes in the ground adjacent to habitations. Spirits of deceased individuals continued to "live," although details of any notion of an afterlife or of reincarnation are scanty.

Through Aleut ceremonies of singing, dancing, drumming, and wearing masks, the people entertained themselves and honored deceased relatives. Social rank was bolstered through bestowal of gifts. Register NOW

Athabaskan
Alaskan Athabaskan shamans were translators for communication between people and spirits. They guarded people against ill effects of bad spirits. They also diagnosed disease and restored health to those harmed by bad spirits. The shaman also performed scapulimancy, which predicted the location of game when hunting was scarce.

An infamous bad spirit was Giyeg. The belief was people became sick because Giyeg thought about them. The shaman's job was to distract Giyeg and thereby prevent the person's death. Another well-known bad spirit was the Nahani, AKA The Woodsmen, believed to be the spirit of people who got lost in the woods.

The human spirit was called the Yega and, upon death, the Yega must be properly guided to the afterlife. Athabaskans believed human resembled animals, and their spirits communicated directly. The Raven was the most popular animal followed by caribou, wolf and bear. If an animal was mistreated, its spirit would wreak havoc on the life of the offending Athabaskan.

Ceremonies were designated to protect, heal or cleanse. The energy generated by the shaman dictated the connection with the spirits and effectiveness of results. A popular after-death ceremony, called a potlatch, facilitated a smooth transition to the Yega of the deceased. Food, water, song and dance were offered to the Yega.

Being the revered medicine woman/man, the shamans could use their power for either good or evil. People both feared and admired shamans because of their extraordinary abilities. The most evil shamans wielded control over people through puppets, sometimes using them to send out threatening messages.

In the Dena'ina peoples' eyes, the "white man" couldn't be helped by the shaman because he was believed to have the soul of a deceased Indian within. Shamans often demonstrated their powers to gain credibility. Tales include flying though the air, or being shot and then coughing up the offending bullet. Shamanism in Athabaskans is controversial and not openly practiced, but some still privately practice it. Register NOW

Haida
To the Haida, the universe was divided into three parts. The flat, circular Earth was in the middle. Above was solid and supported by a pillar mounted on the earth. Seawater was the third, below the earth. They believed verything has a spirit, from animals to mountains, lakes, and caves. They made offerings of tobacco and birds' feathers to please powerful spirit beings. Through ceremonies, the Haida honored the spirit world as well as their fellow men, nature spirits, and ancestors. Though long and complicated dances and songs, spirits entered their bodies for good or evil purposes. If a tribe member became possessed by an evil spirit, the shaman drove the evil out.

The Haida believed they were protected by spirit beings such as the bear, raven, and owl. They depicted these animals in their art work, most recognizably totem poles carved from Western Red Cedar trees. They prayed, made offerings, and strongly believed in their spirit's abilities to aid and protect them. The Haida relied on a shaman to help them communicate with the spirit world.

The title of shaman was open for anyone to achieve, except slaves. The skills were often acquired by apprenticeship. The individual (most often male, but in rare cases female) was "called" as his tribe's shaman, or the title was passed on from an uncle. After sufficient preparation, he and an assistant entered the woods for eight days, where he meditated and fasted. After eight days, if it was his fate to become a shaman, he fell into a trance (sometimes after falling into unconsciousness) and received a message from the spirit world. After regaining consciousness, the shaman and assistant would seek a land otter and cut out a piece of its tongue, which became an amulet, wrapped in a piece of his clothing and the source of his "land otter power."

After the hopeful became a shaman, he continued his rigid discipline by bathing in icy water, exercising, and drinking devil's club juice (a native ginseng species) daily. The shaman wore tunics soaked in seal oil. He wore a necklace hung with animal claws and carved amulets. Haida believed the shaman's hair was the source of his power. Thus it was never touched and left to grow long and uncombed. When the shaman performed ceremonies, his face was blackened with coal. If the ceremony required him to be naked, his long hair that often hung to the ground covered his body.

If disease needed to be blown away, the shaman completed his rituals with an oval rattle and hollowed-out bone. Illness was believed to be caused by thoughts and behavior that acted against nature. This was called out by the shaman, who asked the spirits to cleanse and heal the individual.

The clairvoyant shaman could sense if the fierce Haida warriors could achieve victory over their enemies before a battle. When a member of the tribe passed away, the shaman predicted which newborn child would inherit the deceased sprit through reincarnation. Working through the power of another spirit, the shaman risked losing his identity or getting possessed. Thus he changed his contacts and disciplines often.

With the introduction of Western religion came boarding schools, and ultimately the destruction of shamanism. Most notably was the loss of their language; now only about a dozen elders still speak the Haida language.

Tlingit
In the Tlingit culture, the shaman is a healer and seer. The shaman performs rituals, ceremonies, and mediates civil disputes. In most cases, being a shaman is inherited by a son or grandson. Though shamans are held in great respect and esteem, they are feared due of their ability to speak with the spirit world, and their ability to use magic.

The Tlingit shaman is referred to as ichta. The appearance of the shaman is wild, with hair loosely hanging in strands. No scissors or comb ever touches him. A shaman possesses decorative objects used in ceremonies and rituals. He has a special unique mask that he uses to appeal to each spirit. Conjuring a spirit may consist of a wild dance around the fire, during which violent bodily contortions occur. The shaman can cure sickness by driving out evil spirits. He can bring good weather and large fish runs. For such services, he collects a good amount of pay, and he always gets it in advance.

When a shaman passes, his burial is different from that of all other Tlingit. The body of a shaman is never supposed to decompose because one of his first spirits stays with him, so it dries like a dried salmon.

Every Tlingit has his own guardian spirit called "tu kinajek” (tu = his, kina = top, jek = spirit). An evil or unclean person is deserted by his spirit. All spirits like cleanliness, the sound of the drum and rattle. A shaman who wishes to summon the spirits must practice alone for three to twelve months, and the house where the performance is to take place must be carefully cleaned.

Another duty of the shaman in Tlingit society is to expose witches. Witches, both men and women, are called "nakutsati" and they learned their skills from Raven while he lived on Earth. A witch harms another through magic, or causes illness. The shaman victims of witchcraft by thoroughly cleaning their house, and finding belongings that the witch stole in order to perform witchcraft.

The ability of a shaman depends on the number of spirits under his control. If he is a good shaman he can prosper, but if he does not maintain proper rapport with the spirits, they might kill him. Every Tlingit shaman has his own spirits with special names and songs. He rarely inherits ancestoral spirits, but they do occasionally appear, and then the shaman makes a practice of entertaining them.

Another belief is the shaman has the power to cast his spirits into anyone who does not believe in him, and these people faint or get cramps. A shaman can bring good weather. He can go into the water and if his hair gets wet, he will bring rain.

Alaska's Inside Passage

The "Inside Passage," extending from Queen Charlotte Islands of British Columbia north to Skagway, is a region of dramatic fjords, pristine islands, and forests of tall hemlock and spruce. Rich in history, the towns and villages of the Inside Passage will provide a unique opportunity to explore the region's abundant and diverse cultural experiences and scenic wonders.

Shaped by the staggering force of massive glaciers millions of years ago, Alaska's Inside Passage boasts wildlife-filled fjords and lush island scenery—habitat for bald eagles, sea lions, porpoises and whales. Its mountains are carpeted with majestic forests. Inside Passage Alaska is home to Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian Indians whose history is reflected in towering totem poles. Russian settlers left a legacy of onion-domed churches gleaming with icons.

Juneau, Alaska

Some local residents live their whole lives here and still don't experience everything to see and do in America's most beautiful capital city.

This place will definitely fill your day—and then some. Old-growth forest, snow-capped mountains, glaciers, ice caves, spawning salmon steams, prime bear habitat, and migratory whale routes all lie within city limits. A short boat or seaplane ride can bring spouting humpbacks, breeching orcas, and some of the best sport fishing on the planet. Hop in a kayak, jump on a bike, or lace up your (waterproof!) hiking boots for some human-powered exploration.

Of course, there's more to Juneau than natural beauty. Set against our stunning backdrop are original Gold Rush-era buildings, art galleries, museums, historic and Native heritage sites, restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping, and seafood that doesn't get any fresher. Register NOW


Skagway, Alaska

A colorful history, scant rain and a lot of cruise ships makes a Skagway one of the most interesting and popular towns to visit in the Inside Passage. Join us in celebrating our Gold Rush past as we begin our second century in the gateway to the Klondike. Spend some time in our historical city or visit the surrounding wilderness areas.

A place exists in Alaska where the past lives on, where the cries of "gold in the Yukon" still echo from steep canyon walls, where the sounds of barroom pianos and boomtown crowds ring out in the night. A place where the romance and excitement of yesteryear linger around every street corner, every bend in the trail. That place is Skagway!

Skagway rarely disappoints visitors. A seven-block corridor along Broadway features historic false-front shops and restaurants, wooden sidewalks, locals in period costumes and restored buildings, many of which are part of the National Park Service-managed Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. Beginning in 1897, Skagway and the nearby ghost town of Dyea was the starting place for more than 40,000 gold-rush stampeders who headed to the Yukon primarily by way of the Chilkoot Trail.

Tracy Arm Fjord

Located about 45 miles south of the port city and state capital of Juneau, Tracy Arm Fjord is a very popular stop along the Alaskan cruise route.

The Fjord is utterly spectacular. At some 30 miles in length (about 6 of which are covered in glacier), the Fjord has magnificent, steep cliffs running along much of its length, often covered with lush trees and shrubs.

Waterfalls intermittently plunge off the cliffs and into the waters of the Fjord below, making for a seemingly endless number of photo opportunities as you head along its length.

The twin Sawyer Glaciers are the true draw for the cruise ships, and they are stunning. They are both actively calving glaciers, meaning that they continually break off in chunks of ice which the plunge into the water below in an amazing cloud of shredded ice. It's the calving that everyone waits for, and it always draws the "oohs" and "ahhs" from everyone on board.

As with the other glacier viewing locations in coastal Alaska, you need to be prepared when you visit Tracy Arm Fjord in order to really be comfortable and enjoy the experience. This means dressing in layers and also having some sort of waterproof coat with you to wear on deck. The weather in the Fjord, as it is elsewhere in this region, is incredibly fickle, often damp, and can switch quite rapidly from clouds and overcast to sunshine and then back to drizzle.

Victoria, BC, Canada

The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria boasts many historic buildings and some of the best museums in Western Canada. The area is also home to some of the country's most exhilarating scenery: there's an ocean or mountain (or both!) vista around every corner, and the city's flower gardens are famous the world over. Whether your taste runs to golfing, hiking, biking and fishing, or you're more the shopping, dining and theatre type, Victoria has you covered.

Established in 1843 as a fort for the Hudson's Bay Company, Victoria's British ancestry is apparent in the double-decker buses, horse-drawn carriages, formal gardens and tearooms. The city is now a cosmopolitan center with a lively entertainment scene and a wonderful array of attractions.

Many walking, cycling and hiking trails start right at the city's doorstep. Victoria's climate is the mildest in Canada, so almost any type of outdoor activity can be enjoyed year round. Victoria's outdoor activities are exciting and diverse. Try hiking or soar through the coastal rainforest on a zipline aerial adventure.

Victoria's natural bounty is what makes a visit so memorable. Few places on earth enjoy as much relatively untouched wilderness so near a major metropolitan centre.

Go camping or hiking in a park, launch a kayak from the Inner Harbour to spot seals on the rocks, or wander through bright blooms in a garden. Whale-watching tours leave from Victoria's harbour, and provide the opportunity to enjoy the surrounding waters and to look for Orcas (killer whales), sea lions, and other marine wildlife. Lagoons, lakes and parks in and near Victoria also make this a great spot for bird watching.

Testimonials About Our Previous Cruises

"I very much enjoyed the cruise and could not possibly find anything I would change. I thought it was very well organized and I would love to be a part of it again. Thank you for a wonderful time!"--Chuck Poloka, Pennsylvania

"When you ask me what I loved about the cruise, I will tell you, 'everything.' It was my experience to enjoy...I asked God to see dolphins and a school of them showed up playing outside my balcony room. I asked God to see whales and whales showed up jumping into the air. I asked God for a beautiful sunset and I was in awe as I watched the sun sink in the horizon. With every blessing, my heart was filled with gratitude."--Tina Taylor, Illinois

"The exceptional service, quality of our room, and the ease of getting food when hungry were great. The view was splendid, as were the excursion opportunities. All enjoyed this event!"--Barbara Tralle, California

"It was the perfect venue for having non-stop workshops, easy access to dining, and also to our rooms. This was so much better than a hotel-based week long workshop! Brilliant idea!!"--Julie Hart, California

"I enjoyed the cruise tremendously. Of major importance for me was being able to disconnect with the 'outside' world. Being in the middle of the ocean certainly helped. I think that this was a perfect way for me to re-connect with myself. This cruise surpassed all my expectations."--A.R.J.

"The panel of speakers was by far the best attribute of the trip. The speakers covered a wide array of topics... everything from Angel wings to the modern Nazi regime. It was all around enlightenment."--D.R.M., Wyoming

"I first want to thank Susan Shumsky for putting this amazing event together. Thank you to all the speakers for sharing your insights, wisdom and love. Susan, you came into my dreams 2 nights before the cruise. You are a great teacher and very matter of fact...The meditations were and are powerful. Each one left me floating out of my chair...Your gifts and messages are so important to us all. Thank you for the love and light that you shine on this world...My experience was perfect...Just know, I love you guys."--Tina Taylor, Illinois

"The cruise was amazing, interesting, fun and knowledgeable. Nice work for giving all of us having such a wonderful time...Well, Susan, hats off to you and all you did to find everyone and put the cruise together."--Victoria Buchen, Arizona

"I loved it all I didn't do any excursions it was awesome!!! I would do again loved Dannion he's awesome! And Sean! I need laughter to lighten it up like meetings at work, too professional, makes me want to sleep!"--Laura Cringan, Massachusetts

"I enjoyed the various speakers and the different areas that were covered. The speakers who had the experience that was most relatable to me, I enjoyed most. The ones who offered experiential exercises were by far my favorite. Dr. Susan Shumsky was number one!!! Due to the guided meditations and the personal experience they offered to me. I also really enjoyed Victoria of the Light because I had a personal connection with her."--Gerri Walker, Pennsylvania

"I enjoyed Dannion due to his personal story and sense of humor. I enjoyed Sean David Morton due to his experiential exercises, sense of humor, and secret government information. I found that intriguing. I enjoyed the insight that was provided into the Mayan people that was given by Elizabeth Araujo."--Gerri Walker, Pennsylvania

"Just wanted to say thank you Susan for inviting me to be a part of the cruise and for all the work and hours that you put in, so everything would run smoothly. I really enjoyed being a part of the group. I was also very impressed with your lecture and so was everybody else that attended it. You are a brilliant speaker. I am looking forward to your next cruise."--Lai Ubberud, Texas

"I love Danion and Sean David Morton. They were both fabulous. Nicki's presentation was incredible. So was Susan's. And the ceremony/presentation that Marybeth did on the second last day was off the charts! I also loved the closing ceremony, with all the speakers. It was very high. I totally enjoyed the night vision experience and think that's a big plus. We could have promoted it a bit more at dinner every night. I don't know about his attendance, but I was shocked at how easy it was to get to the roof and 'play' in this way. A big plus, and cudos to you for bringing him. I thought that was really special."--Maureen St. Germain

"My favorite speakers were Dannion - gives confidence in spirit; Sean- information and funny; Susan - phenomenal meditations. My favorite event was the last speaker panel; funny, but to hear they were blessed as well as blessed us. My favorite shore excursion was Honduras - not so Americanized. The ship staff and services were phenomenal."--Kathy Brilliant, California

"I enjoyed being Mayan. The people, ports and spirit of the trip were all incredible. Dannion was my favorite speaker. If you really listen to what he is saying, some of the most brilliant and cosmic material being said on the planet right now. He also adds a great sense of humor to otherwise humorless topics (like death). Sean David is like a water fountain of information. The angel wing thing was also great because it was interactive with the audience. The Jedis vs. Cyborgs thing is something I've been talking about for several years. Loved to hear it coming from Sean David now too! I really enjoyed Mark Becker's yoga. It was a nice change of pace to the classes and other scheduled activities. A great way to start the day! Meeting and connecting with people."--Sean Murphy, California

"Thank you so much for inviting me to participate on the Cruise into 2012 conference. I met a lot of wonderful people and appreciated meeting you both. It was a powerful time for the planet and especially the oceans. Day by day the Light is increasing on Earth and we are all blessed to add to the Light of the world whenever we have the opportunity."--Patricia Cota-Robles, Arizona

"I wanted to thank you, Susan, for organizing this cruise. I think it gave the participants and the speakers new openings for the future, which was its purpose."--Carl Johan Calleman, Sweden

"I enjoyed the sense of community and purpose. I enjoyed the informality and accessibility of most of the speakers. I enjoyed that some shore excursions were exclusively for our group."--Jim McPhie, California

"Las Caletas Hideway was wonderful and I felt that was the closest we ever resonated as a cosmic spiritual experience throughout the trip. I connected with people I had never imagined and there were some exchanges which were quite important. Since I work with Emoto, I was able to use water as a medium for carrying important messages and even though I was very discrete I had people connecting with me. I am sure that at some level, we were all pulling in the same direction. Many thanks to Carl Calleman for his dedication and perserverance and to you for keeping it all together."--Beth Goodson, Switzerland

"I loved all the incredible speakers and the variety of information. I loved the Mayan ceremony and the food aboard ship. I was pleasantly surprised to find that speakers like R Hoagland, S Morton, and Wayne H. who I hadn't heard before were giving us access to such valuable information and were such wonderful speakers. What a treat! Every one of them was wonderful in their own area of expertise."--Tami Kukuczka, Michigan

"Overall, I loved just about everything about the cruise. If I had to choose a few memorable experiences they would be the sacred ceremony in Puerto Vallarta, Whale Watching in Cabo and seeing a UFO zoom across the sky while stargazing on the Helipad with Richard Hoagland. I sincerely hope you have more spiritual cruises in the future!"--C.J.M, Vancouver, Canada

"I enjoyed Dr. Shumsky's meditations the most. This is the first time I can honestly say I learned what meditation is all about and how to be comfortable with myself during meditation. I intend to continue my meditations and reaching the spiritual goals I have set for myself."--R.T.W.

"What I enjoyed most about the cruise was everything! Great ship, great itinerary and wonderful people. My favorite speakers were Maureen, Tenwhitefeathers, Lai Ubbard, Susan, Dannion, Sean. I also really enjoyed Mark's yoga class. He is a great teacher! I really enjoyed the fire ceremony at Altun Ha. I also LOVED the Sting Ray and Dolphin swim."--Melissa Thomson, California

"I liked Susan's & Others unbelievable effort to make things go right when maybe the universe had another idea. I liked the pace, the starting time each day, the continuity, the people, the accessibility to the speakers plus an update at the end of each speaker on what or who was next and updates on changes if there were any."--Wonderful Wanda, Florida

"I wanted to especially thank you for the work and time you gave for this event. I am aware of your extra efforts, and the trip went extremely well. It turned out to be very sacred and special. Many, many people were helped and grew in these energies."--Elizabeth Joyce, Pennsylvania

"Susan... I can't say enough about your effort from the beginning of your asking for the order to the follow with additional information, to the Teleconference, to Ship Data, and the situations you had on board with guests, speakers, and crew. You were marvelous!"--Wonderful Wanda, Florida

"In my opinion, the cruise lived up to the advanced billing. I found the 9th Wave Ceremony something to remember. The cruise was relaxing. I found the dolphinarium visit interesting because of the opportunity to meet a dolphin at close range with nothing between us (such as the hull of a boat). The beach horseback ride constituted the first opportunity for me to ride a horse since I was a teenager."--Tom Shaffer, Connecticut

"THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Susan, I really appreciate everything you did to make the trip a reality (both for me and everyone else). I feel so blessed and grateful just to be able to go on the cruise this year. May you all be blessed and see you on a future cruise! Thank you all so much!"--Sean Murphy, California

"Got a lot of information, met a lot of great people--left feeling really good!"--J.A.H, New Jersey

"All in all I found the seminar informative, stimulating and thought provoking. I will be inspired to read many of the presenters...I found the seminar life-altering. The information presented here will be part of every decision I make in the future. Thank you for your offering of an enriching experience."--Addie R., Florida

"I liked the fact that we were a microcosm--this presented challenges as well as beautiful opportunities. I thought all speakers were well prepared. I personally resonated with the theme of the cruise: Carl Calleman and those speakers who tried to present the idea of co-creation at this important date. The shore excursion was just magic. Victoria of Light was with us and through her capacities as a whale rider led whales which stayed with us for 8 miles--even the pilot of the boat was blown away by that experience."--Beth Goodson, Switzerland

"It was wonderful in so many ways! So nice to meet and talk with other like minded people, to hear some wonderful presenters and be charged up and excited by the music...Being able to walk right into the dining room without a reservation was a big bonus for the whole group, and it was exciting to get to know a few of the attendees and presenters at dinner as well."--Lily S., Oregon

"I enjoyed the meeting of like minded people in a lovely relaxing situation. Victoria of Light was favourite followed closely by Dannion, then Harrison. The evening meals I enjoyed as it was a lovely way to meet the others. I loved the three excursions I took -Tulum, Altun Ha, and swimming with the Stingrays and Dolphins. They where all great in different ways can't pick best. I liked the food and service. Thanks so much for the opportunity, and all you did to make it a great experience."--Jessie Dickie, New Zealand

"The team of support people that were there all the time, EVERY one of them were sweet, comfortable, and easy to work with... Their genuine concern for our welfare was very evident. Who could ask for more? The taping team were MOST impressive. They are very hard workers. They were so flexible and 'on the job.' so many hours. I don't know how they kept up! Great prices for the videos."--Maureen St. Germain, New York

"I enjoyed meeting the people, not having to cook, and the excursions off the ship. I enjoyed the dinners as you could talk to lots people. Meals were really great, the staff were very helpful, service of rooms was awesome."--Lesley Evans, New Zealand

"The whole idea of the Spiritual cruise and many of the people involved made it a memorable experience. I arrived on the cruise after a two week spiritual retreat, totally balanced in full love, light and power. The cruise was a beautiful finish to my month of Spiritual work and I learned so much. It was a time for making new friends, sharing ideas, understanding and generally having fun."--Julia Green, Florida

"I liked everything about the cruise. My favorite speakers were Sean David, Carl Calleman, and Maureen St. Germain. My favorite event of the cruise was holding a stingray. My favorite shore excursion was Elizabeth Araujo's ceremony at Cozumel."--R.C., New York

"My favorite speakers were Victoria of Light as she has high vibrational energy and it takes you to an amazing place. Dannion Brinkley as he was in his heart and felt like Love and Truth. Marybeth as she was coming from heart. Harrison was a genuine loving soul who also was coming from his heart. My favorite shore excursion was the trip to Altun Ha and the ceremony there, as it felt like I was connecting to other life times. It felt very special."--Lesley Evans, New Zealand

"The service people, staff and waiters were fabulous. They noted needs, and remembered us. They produced 'food requests' almost like a magician, very quickly and with grace and ease. The ship was beautiful. Great deco, interesting layout and well thought out. Food service seemed very efficient no matter where we ate. Impressive. Loved their food, service and accommodations. I thought our stateroom (on the 2nd floor) was laid out VERY well. We were both able to store our clothes and suitcases, have room to both of us work and be comfortable! It may have been bigger than my NYC bedroom!"--Maureen St. Germain, New York

"During Sean's meditation I felt the Holy Spirit gently rock me back and forth. However, it was in Susan Shumsky's guided meditation that I had a most magnificent experience. The Holy Spirit began rocking my body back and forth uncontrollably and I began to have vivid visions. It was very difficult for me to come back to the room. I wanted to stay in bliss forever. When I did finally manage to open my eyes, I continued to rock. I rocked for several hours afterwards-all during lunch and into the next presentation. I kept asking everyone if the boat was rocking and they said no. All I can say is, Susan has a direct line to the Divine!"--C.J.M., Vancouver, Canada

"Our Captain took us first to Lover's Beach and Los Arcos explaining each feature and some history. We got up close to the Seal colony near land's end. Then we took off in search of whales! Our Captain had a heads-up from another Captain that some whales had been spotted a few miles north in the Sea of Cortez. Shortly we came upon a group of small craft that were shadowing some whales. Just as we got close, a baby whale jumped completely out of the water. The baby was swimming along with its mother and rolling and slapping its tail. Because there were several small boats of various kinds watching we all kept a ways away from the whales so as not to sppok them. Just about the time that many of the other small boats turned back, the large catamaran with many of our fellows in Oneness showed up and although we had seen the papa whale some ways off, he came over and put himself between the large catamaran and mama and the baby. The whales picked up speed and for a while we had some difficulty staying near them. But, then the large catamaran left and papa let us get real close to himself and mama and baby. All this time Victoria had been "singing" to the whales and now the whales slowed down and we were right next to them. Papa went right under us, but he didn't come up until he was clear of us. It was a truly amazing excursion."--Jim McPhie, California"


Comments About the Mayan Ceremonies:

"My experience of the 9th Wave Ceremony was almost indescribable. The moment I stepped off the boat, I started crying. Like I was home. Well, at least that's how it felt. The air was so pure. The sounds were so calming. I was definitely in a state of grace. During the ceremony the drum beats moved through me and I felt every word in my heart. I felt the air, the trees, the birds, the sun, the earth and...I felt one with all. After the ceremony was over, I was brought to tears again. This time, it felt like a letting go. It was a letting go of something so deep inside me that I can't even describe it. I just remember saying thank you over and over again. Then finally, that sense of responsibility was gone. I took the deepest breathe I have taken in awhile and just started laughing, uncontrollably. It was so cool."--Tina Taylor, Illinois

"This was the highpoint of the week. We walked up the hill and stopped to be cleansed with incense - and then went into the arena area. The ceremony was endearing and it was great to see Dr. Calaman honored for his writing. That brought tears of gratitude to my eyes."--Elizabeth Joyce, Pennsylvania

"I found the whole experience of the 9th Wave Mayan Ceremony moving, and a lot of work had been put in to the celebration to make us feel welcome and part of the ceremony. What they gave, they gave from the heart and their beliefs...Having listened to the talks on the Mayan calendar beforehand made it even more meaningful as I knew nothing at all about the Mayan calendar before this journey."--Julia Green, Florida

"I felt blessed that these indigenous people included us as their brothers and sisters after all the persecution they have suffered. I really feel the ceremony was profound and it brought me to tears of gratitude."--Tami Kukuczka, Michigan

"My favorite events were the ceremonies, all of them, Nicki's, Elizabeth, and the very special ceremony that was done at Altun-ha were just spectacular. All of them were very very special. I especially appreciate the phenomenal logistics that you arranged for the ceremony with the Mayan Elders and Dannion. People don't realize how incredible they were. I think the choice of locations that Mark demanded was SPECTACULAR!!! They were well prepared with the ceremony initiation circle and then the circle on the main lawn. Quite impressive. It is quite an undertaking. Congratulations on pulling that one off! You chose well."--Maureen St. Germain, New York

"It was exhilarating! One of the Mayan elders hugged me and I can still feel it!!!!"--M.A.J., New Jersey

"I had a personal experience in Belize at Al Tun Ha. That was my favorite because I connected with the spirit of the ancestors personally and came back a different person than when I started."--Gerri Walker, Pennsylvania

"My favorite activities were the hugs, dinners, and general sense of celebration among each other. If I had to say one event it would be the ceremony at Altun Ha. Going to a sacred site is a must on 'spiritual trips' like this."--Sean Murphy, California

"Absolutely and utterly amazing. I will bear this experience in my heart forever and will pass it on, whenever and wherever I can."--Helle Thuren, Denmark

"The Ceremony was magical! I especially enjoyed being on stage at the end and participating in the dancing. One of the Mayan elders gifted me with a sacred ceremonial rattle. I felt truly blessed and grateful for the experience. During and afterwards I felt very light, etheric and full of love :) Yes, the wave is upon us!"--C.J.M., Vancouver, Canada

"The Mayans were as if from another world, so pure in their intent and they performed the rituals. Even the children focused pure hearted and content on the mission of making their purpose known to the spirit world."--Connie Fisher, New Mexico

"I was so grateful to have this very uplifting, profound experience. It was so amazing that the Mayans came all the way across the country to make this happen there and then. Their honoring of Carl Calleman was one of the highlights for me...The snake dance was great for its sense of inclusion and community. Everyone was on another plane for some time afterwards. Really, I'm not sure I left there yet! We are all One."--Jim McPhie, California
