Medicine for the Earth: Ceremonies to Restore Personal & Planetary Health
Jul
8
to Jul 13

Medicine for the Earth: Ceremonies to Restore Personal & Planetary Health

TAUGHT BY: DORY COTE

REGISTRATION: Open

COST: $405 plus housing and meals

Through the shamanic journey process, and aided by Dory’s years of experience, you will learn secrets and practices of the ancient alchemists, mystics, and shamans.  After learning to view the Earth and yourself from a new perspective, under Dory’s guidance you will practice the ancient methods of transmuting and transforming toxins.  Like the ancient alchemists you will experience the truth that from a place of divine love lies the power to change the density of matter for the greatest good of all Beings.  By working together and individually to transform and transmute toxins you will understand that this is a primary route to the restoration of health for the Earth and yourself.  This is the focus of our work together for the week!

The Medicine for the Earth program is highly experiential.  Working indoors and outdoors, we will dance, drum, sing and perform ceremonies and healings on each other and in nature.  We will together create the possibility of observing miracles in our midst.   Throughout the week we will experiment with the power of words and thoughts; learn and practice body-centered shamanism; merge with the elements of earth, air, fire and water; access our ancestors to seek wisdom; recreate a vision for the Earth; and re-charge our imaginations.  You will be held in a safe and loving Circle throughout the week as you expand your understanding of cosmic truths.

You will leave with confidence that you can make a difference in your own health and wellbeing, that of your local environment, and of the whole planet.  We will build our own lifelong community and you will be given information to access a worldwide network of likeminded people who are living this sacred work of Medicine for the Earth.
