Sacred Hoop Year

A Shamanic & Indigenous Path Through The Hoop Year

Rhythms of The Sacred Village
A Village Co-op

The Sacred Hoop Year is our way of village tending and making the village ways affordable and accessible to everyone. 


Throughout the year, The Sacred Hoop Year provides you invitations for both Live and Virtual offerings as we move together with the flow and mythic reflections of the seasons. It's experiencing and being part of a sacred village revolving through the cyclic hoop year.


This gives you exclusive entrance to our community seasonal rituals, Shamanic Weekends of fasting, Ritualized Sweats, Spirit Dance, Grief Tending Circles, and Village Fires.  (These are exclusively available to members of Sacred Hoop Year and our intensive journeys.)


This is a special and exclusive invitation for those who’ve been part of Tree of Totems and are ready to deepen in and become embodied by these ancestral learnings as we move through the hoop year.

This year is inviting us into a deepening of life… a deepening into the mythical shamanic and indigenous lens that weaves us into the hidden meanings within the movements of our life as we revolve through the cyclic seasons of the hoop year. 

Remembering Forgotten Things and Endangered Knowledge

This is a soul-nourishing journey of feasting on endangered rememberings that weave us back into accord with the Great Mystery and all its beauty making.


This is a journey of feeding the Holy in Nature, the Holy in your life, The Holy in the unique way you’re being dreamt into the world with the Medicine you carry within you.


It’s living what the Hopi and Dineh call “Hozho” walking in beauty.  In this we experience a remembering ourselves home.


It’s a path that brings you into direct contact with the unteachable learnings… those teachings that will only ever be known to you and the mountain, to you and the path underfoot.  

A year in the life of a Shamanic Village 

The Sacred Hoop year offers both Live and Virtual gatherings as we flow together through the cyclic influences of the year.

It provides a variety of ways to deepen in, connect, and grow.  You can participate in all or one's you choose.
