Classes and Events

An animal Spirit Guide is an animal totem that guides and protects you through your life. It is an animal that resonates with you, that you feel like you can connect to. This Spirit Guide connects you with the earth and with nature. One does not need to be Native American to find a Spirit Guide, Spirit Guides are there for anyone who has a connection with the earth and with Mother Nature. Join us as we learn to find and communicate with our Spirit Guides. Spirit Guides can provide wisdom and answers to

your life's questions. Learn to tap into the understanding that you are seeking. Please bring a blanket to sit on outdoors. 

Crow Caller writes about his life and journey---“In 1990 I began a journey of remembrance. Having come from a background of traditional Christian teachings, the study of world religions, and deep involvement with A Course in Miracles, I was led by Spirit to become active in the study and practice of Native American teachings and Shamanism. On this journey I expanded my studies to include Hawaiian and Celtic Shamanism. When researching my family history, I discovered a Native Cherokee Indian ancestry in my mother’s lineage that led me to a deeper appreciation and dedication to walking the Good Red Road. My Shamanic training comes from the teachings of Michael Harner and the Foundation for Shamanic Studies as well as Huna (Hawaiian) Shamanism taught by Serge Kahili King. The Shamanic procedures I incorporate into my practice include Soul Retrievals, Shamanic Extraction, and Shamanic Counseling. I also facilitate hands-on workshops on these techniques.

 In 1992 I met Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow (a Southern Ute), and Native American Elder Picuris Pueblo, and began yet another journey. Beautiful Painted Arrow gave his Teachings and Blessings for me to facilitate Sweat Lodges and to lead Dances based on his visions. Over the years I have been involved with the leadership and facilitation of Long Dances, Drum Dances, and Moon/Sun Dances in the United States and Australia. I also guide individual and group Vision Quests and teach explorations of the Medicine Wheel, modalities which provide experiential opportunities for life changes.

 For the past ten years I have been actively involved in the ManKind Project USA, an international men’s network of interdependent centers. We are an order of men called to reclaim the sacred masculine for our time, through initiation, training, and action in the world”
