Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings

Dates & Registration

The Art of Living 'Completely Connected'

Imagine yourself living in intimate relationship with the living Earth, tuned to the rhythms and cycles of nature. Able to tap into the universal life-force energy for constant renewal, transformation and spiritual rejuvenation. Through an ‘age old’ reciprocity you experience the sacred unity of all living things and the joy of living completely connected within the web of life.

This workshop is an invitation to re-story your life back into unity with our sacred planet. To reclaim instinctual wisdom and your sense of ‘place’ and purpose. To move beyond the illusions of separation and reclaim the source of your greatest wisdom – your ecological Self. 

We explore what it means to be human – Now – our role and responsibility? What is true leadership, and the new spiritual task of this era? How do we open to the grief of an endangered world, and the intelligence of Earth? What kind of future will we create together?  These are the essential questions of our time.

Our approach is to ground education in the source of Life - the Earth. For 28 years Shamanu has distilled core teachings that weave a diversity of regenerative practices and philosophies - Deep Ecology, New paradigm thinking from science and spiritual traditions, personal transformation strategies, Primordial Journeys, Earth rituals and meditations, and deep nature immersion to ignite your innate ability to make contact with, learn from and be nourished by the ‘other powers of life’ in which human existence is completely intertwined.

Entering into joyful rapport with the animate Earth awakens the innate intelligence and wisdom to be the visionary leader and co-creator with Earth that you were born for.

"It is this kind of education that will take us into the future in a good way. Totally inspiring." Sean

Processes that Connect

The process supports individuals to develop and deepen into the powers of Earth as fundamental forces of who they are, turning them into first hand experiences that are applicable to ones life and service. 

Sessions includes somatic practices to elevate and ground what you are learning. The Primordial Journeys, Ritual and Meditation processes awaken our felt connection with the primal expressions of nature.   

"Now is the time when we must renew ourselves and live as if we and all of life is sacred, and as if everything we do makes a difference." Jean Houston


Founded in 1983, The Living Centre is a 50 acre educational sanctuary with wild meadows, forest-woodland, spring-fed pond and Permaculture grown organic fruit orchards and gardens. The land has always been organic. The spacious surroundings offer a perfect setting for learning, regeneration and reconnecting. Over the course of 30 years, The Living Centre has transformed into an integrated, multifunctional, ecologically abundant living classroom 

"The Earth's powers are coursing through us moment by moment. To become aware of these powers is to touch the source of Life." ~ Brain Swimme, Cosmologist

Lorenna Bousquet-Kacera


Lorenna Bousquet-Kacera is founder of Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings, (est. 1989), a grandmother and daughter of the Earth. Lorenna has followed her own wild heart to grow Earth centered training pathways which she has offered across North America. Weaving enchanted stories and wise council, Lorenna supports us at this time of global crisis/opportunity to return emboldened to Earth and to our own human wildness. 

For over 45 years Lorenna has mentored ‘change makers’ from all walks of life. Her teachings help us reclaim our birthright as ecological beings, and with it an Earth-honouring vision that is centered in a practical spirituality. 

Lorenna is the co-director with her husband Shantree of The Living Centre (est.1983). She is a Permaculture Educator, Ayurvedic Living Nutrition Educator and Sevenfold Path of Peace coach with a specialty in evolutionary regeneration at the personal, ecological and spiritual levels.

A study into the mysteries of life and how to invoke the primal Elements of nature have shown her that human and Nature are one force, interconnected in all ways. Her teachings support the reclaiming of our birthright as ecological beings, and with it ourselves and our future. She believes that everything we need to know about how to live extraordinary lives we can find the answers to in Nature. 

Her 40 years experience in the field of personal transformation, spiritual evolution and holistic ecology has gifted her with a diversity of regenerative modalities and wisdom, which she loves to share with others. 

To break the spell of separation; to rediscover the creative heart of nature; to feel the Earth's power in your bones and use it for the greater good, is to know the Earth's ecstasy as yours.
