Shamanic Scout Training

A Three Month Journey Learning Shamanism,  Survival Skills & Nature Awareness

We've been tamed for too long. I'm ready to feel wild and nourish the wild nature within me for it is authentic and real and nourishes the spirit inside me!

A Scout is one who has a heightened awareness and ability to move through any landscape.  They have a deep connection and see the relationships and flows within a landscape and has the practical and internal skills to be within it.

Imagine journeying into the wilderness, gathering around the fire brought to life by primitive methods, of deepening your understanding of the plants, animals and land of the PNW.

Imagine tapping into your wild nature, of heightening your senses, learning how to read animal signs, understand bird language, and interpret the stories left by animal tracks. Imagine being part of the conversation the forest is having all around you.

Imagine learning shamanic drumming, the art of ritual, and the shamanic breath work to harness your internal energy.  Imagine learning Shamanic techniques to cultivate your gifts and live your Medicine.

Imagine learning friction fire with local plants, to make shelter, locate water sources and navigate cross country. Imagine being able to identify local plants and trees, to know their significance in the landscape and their relationship with the animals and birds.


Where most wilderness courses focus on survival skills and neglect the deeper connections, we weave them together so you deepen your relationship with the natural world and learn the hidden wisdom revealed through direct immersion and application.

This is a powerful and intensive journey that leads to a solo overnight fire vigil on the weekend of the Summer Solstice where you make a fire by primitive methods and tend to it throughout the night in a sacred manner.  It's a night of ritual, drumming, meditation and communing with the spirits of the land, animals, and unseen forces guiding you. It's a rites of passage and applying all you learned.

On the Solstice, the Scout Group will merge with the Shamanic Healer group also doing an Equinox to Solstice journey.  We'll converge on the solstice to be in ceremony together.  The next day as you go off into the wilderness for your solo fire vigil, the Shamanic Healers will gather around a ceremonial fire to drum, dance, and chant throughout the night to hold sacred space for your solo journey.

The following day we'll gather together with community where you'll experience an initiation. It's an honoring that you who first entered the forest is not the same who has emerged. It's to say we see you in the new now and the community acknowledges your shift.  This is part of our Tree of Totems culture to recognize we begin these journeys to grow into our medicine/gifts for not just ourselves but so the whole community may benefit.  We honor you.

Journey into the wilderness. Deepen your relationship with the land, animals, and plants.  Heighten your senses and discover how to read the signs and be part of

the conversations of the forest

This is a skills based training.  We journey into the wilderness every other Sunday, gather around a fire made by primitive methods, and immerse ourselves in the forest.  This class is focused less on providing answers and instead on how to ask the right questions to lead you and deepen your own relationship with the forest, plants, and animals.
