Connecting with Nature and Spirit Allies

Spending time in nature can deeply replenish you, body and soul. I encourage and guide people to do so on their own. I also lead Medicine Walks that last from 1–5 days.

Nature is in and around us – it is us. The oxygen we breathe is created by plants that absorb the carbon dioxide we breathe out. The water we drink and bathe in is the same water that has been recycling on our planet for millennia. The mycorrhizal networks under the earth’s surface, made up of interlocked tree roots and fungi, function in some ways like the human nervous system.1

The separation from nature that is prevalent in today’s world is the source of much physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual suffering. By getting in touch with nature and wildness, we become more fully ourselves. Nature can teach us how to:

  • Survive under and creatively adapt to harsh or challenging conditions
  • Meet our own vital needs while staying in balance with everything else
  • Make cooperative connections and alliances
  • Have loving and nourishing family and community relationships

Spirit allies are beings, often represented by animals in our physical world, with specific characteristics and gifts. Each of us may have several spirit allies who have chosen to work closely with us, offering guidance, healing, training, power and love. They can reveal themselves through dreams, shamanic journeys, or spontaneous encounters in the natural world. I can help you discover and develop strong relationships with spirit allies, for your own benefit and the good of all.
