EARTHTENDERS: A New Paradigm for Earth Healing--A Shamanic Apprenticeship of Land Healing: (Ana Larramendi & staff)

Meeting dates: First meeting: Aug. 27 to Sept. 3, 2015. Dodgeville, WI. (Early deadline July 10th)
Session 2 & 3. (2016) Spring and Fall of 2016 (TBA)
Sessions 4. Spring of 2017 (TBA)

(Closed to new participants after 1st meeting) 2016 dates will be posted as they become available.

This advanced level 2-year apprenticeship is for students of shamanism who seek to develop the skills necessary to facilitate earth healing for our changing times.
This unique in-depth training weaves together many traditions of shamanism as well as new esoteric concepts in quantum healing which include working with presence and light. These practices will then be applied to healing the planet. In this apprenticeship we will study the anatomy and cosmology of earth energy systems from a spiritual perspective. For those distraught about the coming earth changes, these teachings will provide a grounded beginning to answering the question, “What can I do?” as well as participating in crafting new ways to assist and support the earth. By developing specialized shamanic skills, we will learn to identify an imbalance and create an intervention to bring a place back into balance.
