Trail in Woods

Original medicine 

This program is a  psycho-spiritual cross-cultural mindfulness approach to the teachings that weave together indigenous wisdom, mindfulness, and earth-based practices in order to integrate seasons and the transitions between the seasons as cross-cultural mindfulness tools.  In indigenous societies, there are long-standing practices of creating the sacred, cultivating stillness and embracing silence. They  cherish being in nature and conducting rituals to acknowledge the coming changes in the world around them and within themselves. 

community healing council

The practice of the healing council is based on indigenous wisdom that integrates psycho-spiritual experiences of self-development.  Our approach to healing the collective is from a holistic understanding of cultivating authenticity.

Original medicine YEARLONG PROGRAM

January 26, 2021 - December 7, 2021

*Registration will  close on January 24, 2020. 


Indigenous societies recognize individuals holding our personal power as Original Medicine. The shadow of the false self is purified as we strengthen our authentic self through the practice of coming home to our truth and power. The teachings of Buddha and Indigenous wisdom build this foundation of truth, trust, and love. 


Together we will explore ways of come into our own Original Medicine and enhance our personal growth and purpose.

Registration closes on January 24, 2021.
