Community and Services

Community-IconThe Sacred Stream Community has been growing steadily since 2002. Beginning in the San Francisco Bay Area, members now meet in their local townships nationally and internationally to continue the work they’ve learned at the Sacred Stream. Our members connect in person and also online. The Sacred Stream regularly holds free events open to the general public, which include drum circles, meditations, and healing clinics.

Once you have taken a class you are considered a member of the Sacred Stream community. As a community member, you can network with others who have taken classes and participate in practice groups and healing circles relevant to the coursework you have done. You also will be notified before the general public about discounts and special events related to the Sacred Stream. Scholarships are also available to members of the Sacred Stream community. In addition, we routinely offer discounts to community members who choose to repeat our regularly-offered courses in order to deepen their understanding.

Several community events are held regularly:

Depth Hypnosis Practitioners, Shamanic Practitioners, Ordained Ministers and Ceremony Services

Many people find their way to the Sacred Stream community because they seek to be of greater service in the world. Depth Hypnosis Practitioner certification is offered through the Association of Depth Hypnosis Practitioners (ADHP) which approves the Depth Hypnosis Practitioner curriculum offered through the Foundation of the Sacred Stream. Shamanic Practitioners are certified through the Circle of Shamanic Practitioners (COP) which approves the Shamanic Practitioner curriculum offered through the Foundation of the Sacred Stream. For more information about ADHP and COP training and certification, or to find a Practitioner in your area, please visit the Association of Depth Hypnosis Practitioners or the Applied Shamanism website. More information on becoming a minister in the Foundation of the Sacred Stream can be found here.

The Strawberry Creek Watershed Project

The Strawberry Creek Project is a community education project to inform the local community about the rich history of the Strawberry Creek area in Berkeley, CA. Intrigued that the Sacred Stream Center is located very close to a sacred shell mound built by the Ohlone people who once inhabited this area, we wanted to understand the history of this place so that we could be better stewards of the land and generate more local awareness about this sacred site. In collaboration with BASE Landscape Architecture and other community groups, we researched the history of the land, the people, and the creek, and constructed a 36” by 24” informational placard, which will be affixed to the side of the Sacred Stream Center. You can view the placard here. If you would like to contribute to this project and help us offset the costs of creating this educational resource for the community, please consider making a donation here.
