The Earth can heal and guide us, if we open to her. In this workshop, two acclaimed guides of Earth-based wisdom ways join together to blend age-old approaches and initiate you into the transformative power of our living, conscious Earth.

This intensive program combines modern methods with ancient practices and rituals from cultures from around the world—Africa, Peru, the Asian Steppes, the Himalayas, sacred Maya lands, the Philippines, the Amazon Basin and high Andes, North America, and Southeast Asia—to restore and nourish your connection with the Earth and open you to her healing forces.

During the week, you learn to:

  • Retrieve spirit guides and sacred items
  • Open to fresh possibilities for living together on the planet
  • Celebrate through music and transform through trance movement rituals
  • Gain empowerment through ancient rites and ceremonies
  • Cocreate with nature to engage her mystery and claim your true purpose
  • Practice nature-based meditation

As we communicate with the life all around us, we recover the passion and deep expanded states that are innate to being human—and we tap into healing for ourselves and the land.
