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 story and wise council, Lorenna supports us at this time of global crisis to return emboldened to Earth and to our own human wildness.
For 50 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 offers Spiritual Ecology Lifestyle coaching with a specialty in evolutionary regeneration at the personal, ecological and spiritual levels.
Studies 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 our future and ourselves. She believes that everything we need to know about how to live extraordinary lives we can find the answers to in Nature.
Her work is inspired by her Metis heritage, Joanna Macy – The Work that Reconnects, Starhawk & Dave Jackie – Permaculture, Emily Conrad & Susan Harper – Continuum, Deep Ecology & Living Systems Theory, the cosmological work of Brian Swimme & Thomas Berry.
Her 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 generously shares with others.
Lorenna’s spiritual values are woven into her life as she is committed to meaningful spiritual transformation in her marriage, her community and on the beautiful land she calls home.
“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.”
