Program Description

Indigenous and sacred cultures have always known what we, in these technological times, are at risk of forgetting: within our connection to the natural world is everything that we need to be wise, awake, whole, and healthy.

In this powerful 2-day workshop, award-winning author and mystic healer Sonja Grace presents the teachings from her newest book, Dancing with Raven and Bear: A Book of Earth Medicine and Animal Magic. Drawing on the sacred wisdom of Norwegian folklore and the Hopi tribe, Sonja will help you tap into your spiritual goals, heal within your chakras, and connect more deeply to the divine within and around you.

Through a combination of storytelling, guided meditation, dream interpretation, prayer, and spiritual healing, you will:

  • Learn about the elements of Earth Medicine—how to work with plant, mineral, and animal qualities to bring about holistic well-being
  • Gain an understanding of the Earth’s electromagnetic field and how it affects you
  • Experience different realms and dimensions to expand your own understanding
  • Access your animal totems—those guides specific to you, your path, and your good fortune
  • Learn techniques to clear, release, and process emotional energy.

With her unique cultural perspective, Sonja will take you on a mystical journey of the soul. This gifted and renowned healer will guide you closer to nature so you return home grounded, expanded, and more deeply connected to the wisdom and healing that surrounds you.
