Spirit 1:
The Sacred Mountains

Create a personal connection with Spirit, Nature, and your Self.
Bring the power and beauty of your spiritual path into every day and every action.

  • Learn ancient ways of entering shamanic consciousness through guided meditations.
  • Discover how to bring the strength, love, and connection from your spiritual path into every moment of life.

Have you experienced times of elevated consciousness of indescribable beauty, expansion, and power, and want to have that in your everyday life?
Are you conscious of something beyond the physical but don’t have a framework within which to understand and work with it?
Do you feel curiosity and openness about who you are and why you are in this life?
Do you want to expand your knowledge and competence/power in working with energy? Do you have training in energy work such as Reiki or healing touch, yet still have a sense that there is more power and skill to be learned and applied?
Do you enjoy a strong connection with nature and want to deepen that relationship?
Would you like to connect with other people who understand?
Are you ready to bring your gifts to the world?

You may have a spiritual path, or you may be a newbie in this realm. All are welcome. We are all learning.

In Spirit 1 you will develop a relationship with the natural world on both the spiritual and physical levels. On the physical level we will explore one primary doorway in the realm of skills through a study of tracking: seeing, identifying, and reading animal tracks. After experiencing tracking, you will never look at the ground the same way again.
We will do intentional guided meditations to be comfortable in and explore spiritual realms that are beyond the reach of our five senses. You will find your personal place of sanctuary and power.

The Spirit program begins with the traditional Native North American shamanism and energy healing I have learned with advanced study with Tom Brown Jr. and Native teachers. It integrates this learning with my own experience of the past thirty years as well as modern shamanic understandings, the wisdom of David R. Hawkins, the work of Michael Newton and the realm of souls, and Ken Wilber’s model of growing up/waking up/cleaning up/showing up.

What you will gain from this weekend:

  • Meditative techniques to enter expanded consciousness quickly and reliably, with direct personal experience of the realms of spiritual consciousness.
  • Techniques for extending physical awareness to connect with Nature in a way you may not have thought possible – physically and spiritually, in community with all of life.
  • A powerful technique for using energy for healing.
  • An overview of a beautiful, powerful, and inclusive cosmology, including your own place of safety and beauty in the spiritual world.
  • Knowledge and techniques for protecting yourself spiritually and energetically.
  • Ceremonies for daily practice to reinforce the learning and solidify your progress.
  • Techniques that empower you to continue your growth.

You will feel that you have seen possibilities beyond what you have known, as though you have reached the tops of Sacred Mountains. That feeling, that power, is why we call this workshop The Sacred Mountains.
