Becoming a medicine bundle carrier is a deeply personal, self tending, healing way, with potential to expand into specific devotional practices and/or working with the land and community.
As with most of what I offer, it is a "slow-cooked" process. Meaning time, interest, dedication, and reflection need to be invested. This is not a hurried, get-to-the-end, weekend warrior, fast dive initiation. Like a good soup or tea, we let things simmer and brew over time, carefully adding only what brings a harmonious depth of flavour.
We move through each stage mindfully and intentionally. And we understand this is an active living practice. One that may slowly shift over the time you spend with your bundle allowing ever enriching layers of nuance to reveal themselves.
Along with the online content here, 3 online group video gatherings are offered as well as the private facebook group Medicine Bundle Carriers for community, questions, sharing, coordinated healing work, and continued deepening of our personal practices.
Animist & Spiritual Teacher
About the instructor
As a bean feasa living in Powell River BC, I work with the medicines of the beautiful unceded Coast Salish lands that I am blessed to live on, as well as the traditions of my Scottish and Irish ancestors.
People come to me for personal healing work, to attend ceremonies, and to establish an animistic, earth-centered, 'shamanic' way of living. Online supports for your spiritual practice through videos, audio recordings, magazine articles, and discussion groups, plus soul restoration sessions, readings, and in-person medicine gatherings are also available.
My journey into 'shamanic' practice began in 2007 with an intensive 3 year practitioner apprenticeship within a Celtic lineage. By 2013 I was offering community gatherings, workshops, and monthly journey circles in Squamish and North Vancouver BC. I expanded my training in 2015 with Sandra Ingerman's Teacher courses, and a small, established focus group that had organically formed, evolved into a full 2 year Immersion program - Return to Reverence. (formerly the Shamanic Living Immersion) In 2017, with the support of our community, I brought a healing retreat cottage and studio "The Sanctuary" into being on the Upper Sunshine Coast of BC. By 2019 The Sanctuary become our permanent residence and I moved my practice fully to Powell River.
The online programs and courses you find here are my response to growing community requests, to more fully accommodate long distance interest, better suit various commitment levels, and become more accessible to those with time or financial constraints.
