Community Bone Throwing
with Joanne Dodgson
Live in Balance from Your Heart
Throwing of the Bones Ceremony
Bone Throwing is an ancient divination ceremony and healing art. Each of the seventy bones is the home for a spirit guide who offers unique medicines and teachings, including Coyote, River, Buffalo, Butterfly, Dolphin, Spider, and Raven. The Spirits of the Bones share their healing medicines and immense fields of knowledge and doctoring.
In the ceremony, you will receive guidance from the spirits in response to your questions. The doctoring from the spirits begins before we meet and continues to touch your life after you receive the ceremony. 
Personal healing, relationships, home, work, life purpose, clarity for next steps in your path…
what guidance are you seeking?​
