EARTH HONORING ALTAR APPRENTICESHIP 

Are you being called to serve the Waters (Emotions), tend the Fire (Transformation), breathe the Air (Clarity of Mind), or honor Mother Earth (Physically Grounded) all while learning about yourself and the reciprocity of nature and life?
Do you long to be more in tune with your Intuition and the wisdom of the Beyond?
Are you looking for Spiritual Community who can hold a large enough container for you to grow into your potent potential?

Join us on a journey to reconnect deeper with yourself, your intuition and Spirit. Learn how to use an Earth Honoring Altar as a way of being in reciprocity with the world around you, both seen and unseen. Through the use of an Earth Honoring Altar we will explore a deeper connection to the elements of nature and understand when we are in relationship with these forces great wisdom is gained. Through this exploration we begin to know ourselves better and open up to our own greater potential. This is the shamanic path, one in which your own internal growth and connection becomes your way of being.  

Indigenous cultures all over the world were and are in relationship with nature as part of their everyday life. From North and South American, Indian, Tibetan, African, and Druid, they all have some form of an Earth Altar: a Mandala, a Medicine Cloth, or a Mesa. In our one year program you will be creating your own individual Earth Medicine Altar.

By using the shaman archetype, universal principles, and an honoring of your own spiritual lineage you will create an altar unique to you and your own personal energy medicine. Our first weekend will focus on laying the foundation; learning the basics of who, what, where and why nature speaks to us and how we can use that information for personal and spiritual growth. In each consecutive weekend we will build our Altar/Medicine Cloth by understanding our personal relationship to an element (Fire, Earth, Air, Water), a guardian, and a part of self (Physical, Emotional, Spiritual and Mental).  

This apprenticeship is a 7 month journey into learning a shamanic practice in  which you learn more about yourself, have an expanded view of life, learn how to follow and work with energy, you'll learn how to use an altar as a way of deepening your connection to the Divine within in addition to the Divine in nature and the world.  

 

This journey takes place both in person and online. We will meet for 4 in person retreats every other month at the beautiful Terramuse retreat center in Mechanicsville, Iowa.

New Dates to be announced for 2025

Between these we will meet in large and smaller groups and be able to practice the work of tuning into the shamanic realms and our co-creative connection to them.  

Take a moment to watch Elias and I talk about the program and feel the energy we hold for this journey. 

We would love to see you join us for this upcoming Q&A or feel free to reach out with any questions.
