Wisdom of the Divine Natural World (Postponed)

Plant Spirit Medicine as Spiritual Exploration and Discovery

with Eliot Cowan

Dear Friends of Blue Deer,

This program has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this point we are planning to reopen the Center in time for the Summer Solstice.

We are currently accepting registrations for the Summer and Fall Healing Camps and for Sacred Partnership with the World: Living with Totem

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please email if you have any questions.

Wishing you and your loved ones peacefulness from Sacred Land of Blue Deer Center,

Amanda Kerner
Acting Executive Director
Blue Deer Center


Since the beginning of time, shamans looked to nature to understand the realms of wisdom and healing.

This course is for those who wish to explore the natural world and discover themselves. You may be a beginner or a veteran. You may be a healer. You may have no interest in healing. You may consider yourself talented or dense, spiritual or mundane. It doesn’t matter. Whoever you are, you are a child of the world, and your Mother has much to share with you.

In this largely experiental course we will delve into:

  • • Believing is Seeing and What You See is What You Get
  • • The World Forces: Sun, Soil, Mineral, Rain, Growth
  • • Emotion – How Do I Touch the World? How Does the World Touch Me?
  • • The Voice of the Seasons
  • • Learning Plant Spirit Language
  • • Plant Wisdom and How to Hear It
  • • Dream and Reality
  • • Ancestors, Soul and Spiritual Path
  • • Time Around the Fire
