Earth Medicine Fundamentals
Earth Medicine Fundamentals
Earth Medicine practices and principles are based on the beliefs of Animism. This is a connection to the earth and all of creation, understanding that we are part of the whole.

Earth Medicine Fundamentals Intensive – Animistic Practices and Principles
April 14 – June 30
(registration closes April 13th, 2020)
- Understanding Shamanism and its role in the modern world
- Understanding Shamanic Healing practices
Our modern times are now calling for a return to the traditional way of connecting to each other and to all of creation. It is time for us to remember that we are part of the whole and that this connection to the whole is how we heal and grow. We have forgotten who we are and the traditions that have sustained humanity for eons.
- Foundations of the Medicine Wheel
A Medicine Wheel is a physical manifestation of Spiritual energy. It is an outward expression of an internal dialogue. A mirror in which we can better SEE what is going on within us. It is a wheel of protection and enables us, and allows us, to gather surrounding energies into a focal point and to commune with Spirit, Self and Nature (ALL elemental forces).
- Becoming the Hollow Bone (conduit for healing)
- Creating and Understanding a Working Altar
The healing altar is an important part of these practices. Understanding the energy and placement and how the altar supports our work is crucial to holding healing space for others.
- Introduction to Plant Spirit Medicine
Understanding the connection to the spirit of plants and the healing properties of energies of the plants is an important part of the shamanic traditions. These connections are tangible, and the Plant Spirits have much to teach us.
- Introduction to Animal Spirit Medicine
The natural power of animal spirit guides has not been lost. The knowledge and power of animal guides is alive and can be effectively used to improve our lives and all creation.
- Traditional Shamanic Journeying
When a person is guided onto the shamanic path, they learn how to send their soul forth intentionally, on the soul flight which is commonly called a journey or the shamanic journey. The Shamanic Journey is the foundational tool for all healing and energetic work.

Part 2 of Earth medicine series, must complete Part 1 Earth Medicine Fundamentals as a pre-requisite
July 14 – Sept 29
(registration closes July 12)
(if purchased with part 1 the total would be $844 for both)
- Chanting, Medicine songs and using the voice for healing
- Sound and Vibrational Healing Work
- Calling in your Medicine Song
We are all made of vibrational energy. Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Working with sound is an intentional way that will bring about balance and healing in the physical body. Sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.
- Understanding Divination
- Understanding and working with Sacred Tools
There is a wide range of tools used for healing within the Shamanic practices. Each tool carries a power and intention of its own. Working with these tools is a powerful way to connect to the animistic practices and create relationship with the spirits in order to facilitate healing.
- Cord Removal
- House/Land Clearing and blessing
Understanding energy, working with it and recognizing its affect on us is integral to the healing process. Energy healing focuses on the life force that flows through and around all of us; that force that dictates our mood, health, energy, and ability to connect with other beings. Influencing this flow of energy by implementing physical and mental awareness and intention, can bring about profound and replicable results.
- Rites of Passage
- Working with the Ancestors
Ceremonies that mark important transitional periods in a person’s life, such as birth, puberty, marriage, having children, and death. Rites of passage usually involve ritual activities and teachings designed to strip individuals of their original roles and prepare them for new roles. Our oldest Ancestors are connected to these rites and can work with us and through us for greater healing and connection.
- Power Loss and Power Pieces Retrieval
- Energetic Clearing and Protection for Self and Others
Reclaiming personal power pieces (recapitulation) clears up our past, frees up our futures and helps us to become more present in our everyday lives. It is a simple yet powerful practice of working with our belief systems and retrieving our personal energy from whatever beliefs and/or life experiences it is currently wrapped up in.
- Quantum Physics and Shamanism
According to Quantum physics, past and future are not separate, location doesn’t exist, the world only comes into existence once observed, and this thing we call reality is one of many, possibly infinite, interacting dimensions. The Shaman works in this understanding.
