Wild Shaman Training

 

An old world path of remembering what it is to belong to nature

What if we allowed nature to be our teacher?

 

What does it mean to be dreamt by the land, animals, and plants?

What it is to belong to place... to the ancient landscapes of where you reside?

How can you be part of the conversations occurring in nature and hence model a regenerative way of living within today's world?

This journey weaves together ancestral & indigenous perspectives, Nature Awareness Skills, and core motifs of Shamanism. 

 

It's learning and experiencing the ways of apprenticing to Nature and returning to belonging with land, the cyclic web of life and with the unique gifts you have to contribute.

 

By apprenticing to nature through ancestral perspectives, we discover how to make the shift from an adversarial approach to life to a collaborative and relational way of nourishing what sustains us.

What You Learn

 

This path is learning how to learn from an ancestral perspective. It’s learning how to shift from an adversarial approach to life to a relational way of being part of the cyclic web of nature.

In this you’ll gain a deeper relationship with the plants, animals and birds of your area. You’ll cultivate a more intimate relationship with the land, eco systems, and terrain. 
 

Learn in a traditional way called Wild Land Dreaming and experience what it is to be dreamt by the land itself.

You'll go out into nature weekly and be shown how to apprentice yourself to the plants, animals, and eco-systems. You'll not just learn to identify plants, bird language and animal signs but how to be in relationship and part of the conversation nature is having. It's an ancestral way of connecting and belonging to place where instead of us stewarding the land we allow the land to steward us.

By apprenticing to nature, we learn how to be in the world, how to tend to our relationships, to nurture our own path in relationship with the greater whole. Nature reveals how to mature into our essence and live in a good way.

It’s offered as an experiential learning process.  Through videos, audios and articles you’ll gain the core knowledge base and then be invited to journey into nature to experience the principles first hand.

 

We’ll gather around the virtual fireside (zoom) twice a month to pool our learnings and experiences together and hence be part of a more traditional collaborative learning.

You'll have one-on-one mentorship throughout the journey to help you dial in and tailor the journey to your passions and intentions.

Experience the ancestral relationships with our diverse plant world, who they are, the medicine they offer, and how they connect you with place and a sense of belonging.

    The Dreaming Tradition

    It's said we're within a dream within a dream. To become awaken in the dream sets you up for doing "journey" work and reveal the deeper mythic symbology occurring all around you. It clues you into the greater conversations and reveals how to navigate your unique path with greater clarity and understanding

Learning The Unteachable

The original understanding is Shamanism isn't something that can be taught. 

 

The unteachable learnings are those wisdom, knowledge, and stories that become available to you by walking the journey. They’re hidden in the way we tend to fire, or what becomes known to you as you track wolf or bear, or through the relationship you cultivate with sword fern or the nuances of  the sun breaking open into the day. 

 

There are some learnings that will only ever be known to you and the mountain... to you and fox. 

 

We’re not here to teach you, but to provide you the old ways of connecting and sharing the right etiquette so the unteachable becomes known to you and hence becomes your own.
