Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings - Living in Connection
The Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings Immersion takes us on a soulful, life-affirming journey that opens human potential and the wisdom to reclaim our roots as eco-spiritual beings. The illusion that we are separate to Earth fosters a world view that isolates us from the source of our greatest wisdom. The teachings help us remember who we are in the greater story of Life.
Shamanu - meaning the union of Spirit and Earth - nurtures connection with what is sacred, opens hidden sensitivities and ripens capacities that support the spiritual and physical transformations needed for this coming era. It teaches that our way into a vibrant future lives in the ability to enter into deep relationship with Nature as model, mentor, lover and Self.
The Earth Wisdom Teachings open us to the extraordinary ingenuity and creativity of our nature-self, rousing our love for life and the power to protect it. The inherent yearning of body and soul to re-connect to Earth and the web of Life opens the alchemy for healing our world, our future and ourselves.
Through an integrative system of philosophies, personal transformation practices and indigenous wisdom we revive the great joy of engaging consciously in a truly human intimacy with the entire natural world. Waking to our true nature develops the radical creativity needed to participate at the deepest levels of ecological and social transformation, while nurturing a worldview filled with reverence and wonder.
It’s All Alive. It’s All Intelligent. It’s All Connected. – Bioneers Conference Motto
The Earth’s powers are coursing through us moment by moment. To become aware of these powers is to touch the source of Life. – Brian Swimme , The Universe Story
For twenty-three years Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings has distilled core processes that aid individuals in creating empowered choices, lives and societies. Our approach is to ground education in the source of Life - the Earth - and in the practice of living consciously, lightly and joyfully within the Earth community.
The processes help us to develop and deepen into the powers of Earth as fundamental forces of who we are, turning them into first hand experiences that are applicable to our personal lives and service.
Shamanu: Earth Wisdom weaves indigenous teachings, Deep Ecology, holistic science, and Eco-
philosophy with movement, sound and ritual practices that emulate the primal expressions of Nature. The teachings strengthen our capacity to trust in our innate wisdom and cultivate the fluidity needed to navigate chaotic times. The practices make the ideas experiential and practical.
The training integrates the four primary teachings of the Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings - Primordial Movement, Earth Wisdom Teachings, Living from Your Heart and Earth~Rhythms. While there is a synergistic merging of the four processes, each addresses a specific aspect of oneself and ones communion with Earth.
What people often experience:
- The seamless unity of human & Nature
- An extraordinary sense of well-being & vitality
- Awakened bio-intelligence, creativity & intuition
- Spiritual, physical & emotional renewal
- Fluidity & flexibility of body & mind
- Strength & resilience to navigate chaotic times
- Ability to change fear into empowerment
- Empowered sense of Self & purpose
- Reconnection with the primal forces of creation
- Slowing down into the enchantment of Being
- Expanded experience of community
When we fall in love with Earth we fall into oneness with it and come home to ourselves in blissful union.
The Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Immersion is a safe and sacred environment to enter 'heart space' where we remember our roots, feel the pain for what we are losing in the world, create soul connections, embrace the excitement of this transition time on earth and create frequency shifts that are transformational.
Shamanu is an organic process that requires deep listening to what is needed in the moment. For this reason every workshop is unique, depending upon the experience and needs of the participants. We encourage authentic, spontaneous and expressive explorations. Incorporating feelings, memories, and creative impulses are welcomed elements in creating the matrix for your experience.
We will be outdoors, in the elements as much as possible to re-attune to the animating forces of Life.
The workshop begins at 9am. The morning will include instruction, experiential sessions and integration time. The afternoon includes experiential sessions, time for personal processing and interactive exchanges. The workshop is finished a 5pm.

"We are creating with our imaginations a period of rebuilding, where the intercommunion of all species will guide our life activities. We must come to understand that these dreams of ours do not originate in our brains alone. We are the space where the Earth dreams." - Brian Swimme
