For indigenous people from around the world, their spiritual practice was inextricably woven with Nature. Shamans drew their spiritual strength from a deep sacred marriage with the Great Earth Mother. For in this spiritual union there was never aloneness or want, but instead comfort, companionship, visioning and nourishment of the soul.
This experiential workshop is for those who are lovers of nature who wish to deepen their spiritual relationship with the natural world by learning how to truly communicate and be present with the Earth Mother…To see, hear and feel her signs, omens, rhythms and mysteries from a shamanic perspective.
Students in this training will delve deeply into the Sacred Middle World of the Earth and combine ordinary and non-ordinary reality awareness to learn how to interpret and read the communications of the land.
Teachings will include:
• Spiritual Philosophy of the Earth
• Sacred Silence and Cultivating Inner Vision
• Wide Angle Vision & Fox Walking
• Receiving Nature’s Signs & Omens
• Finding Power Places for Healing, Ceremony and Rituals
• Bird Language, Reading the Forest & Nature’s Concentric Rings
• Plant Communication , Tree communication & Medicinal Plant Awareness
• Nature Spirits and Elemental Beings
• Prayer Arrows & Personal Healing
• learn the tools of “wilding” yourself, so you can blend into and be received more fully by the natural world
This workshop is a unique blend of wilderness awareness skills and meditative practices, with many outdoor activities. It does not require you to be physically fit, but rather to open your heart deeper and wider to the Earth than you ever have before…
