I was tooling around ATS this evening and plugged "shaman" into Search and found this thread. I know it's awhile since you opened this thread, but
I felt I had to respond.
I, too, know of Gray Wolf. I also have been drawn to Celtic shamanism, but in recent years, found Native American and aboriginal shamanism
My first "encounter" if you will was when I was sitting in the waiting area of a holistic practioner's office, who had NA flute music playing
softly. I felt myself falling into an altered state, and had an internal journey/vision of Grandfather (a very short, elderly grey/white-haired man),
who was Gray Wolf, who took my hand and led me to a large moonlit pond. I dove under and retreived a white circular stone. I was excited, knowing this
held importance. I handed it to Gray Wolf, saying "Grandfather, look what I've found." He held it up against the night sky, and hung it there as
the moon. I immediately shapeshifted into a mountain lion (strange, not a wolf), and I knew I was a mountain lion (which I call cougar), and began to
move in this new body, seeing out of the cat's eyes. It was an intense experience.
Much has happened with Gray Wolf over the years, which would take volumes to write about.
But I wanted to acknowledge your post and share my experience.
I almost cried when I read your opening lines. A feeling of perhaps a shared teacher, a shared experience.
