On Campus Program

Shamanism and Healing Mother Earth


Tap into your inner being and your relationship with nature to heal yourself and Mother Earth. Join shamanic teachers and healers Nancy Bower and Kathleen Duggan along with internationally known elder shaman Dory Cote for a profound program that takes you on a shamanic journey. Observe the sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and visceral vibrations of the spirit world as you enter divine realms, meet trusted spirit helpers and power animals, and connect with the natural world

Through lecture, discussion, outdoor experiences, sharing, and more, you will 

  • Learn to journey or deepen your journey practice 
  • Mindfully travel to divine realms
  • Spend time in personal introspection  
  • Increase awareness and connection with all living things 
  • Acknowledge and honor your grief and sadness regarding the condition of our planet
  • Release Mother Earth's pain through several shamanic ceremonies. 

The true teachers of this program are the spirits of the land, the trees, birds, and all beings around us. Join us as we connect deeply with the earth, as equal participants in the web of life. 

Note This sacred circle is for both the experienced journeyer and the novice. There will be time indoors for discussion as well as explorations and experiences outdoors. All outdoor activity can be done at the level of ability and comfort of each individual.
