Forest Immersion

Forest Immersion Experience



This apprentice program includes some analytic / left brain learning. We will use a book by Don Jose Ruiz as our textbook.

Nothing beats being able to be immersed into an experience. Shamanism is very earth-based and elemental.

What better way to learn these time honored modalities than by experiencing them on 40 acres of forested land?

2023 Curriculum

Taught by Regina Compernolle, Liz Strother and Sacred Earth Arts staff.

The apprenticeship runs from April 2023- November 2023.

Connect with your inner Wild Wisdom while being immersed in nature. Experience the spirit and energy of the natural world through trance, drumming, and meditation.

Sacred Art
Sacred Art


Creativity allows the soul to speak aloud. We approach visual, poetic and performing arts as a way to honor the forest. Think of it as physical prayer from your heart to Mother Earth. Apprentices will get the chance to make creative offerings from food dishes to sculpture and poetry, in order to connect more deeply with the spirit of the forest.



Shamanic Path
Discover Inner Worlds


The Shamanic path is one that opens your eyes to the Dream World, spiritual guides, plant and animal allies, and your inner Shaman.

This path not only expands your mind but grounds you in the Earth, allowing you to root into your place as a creative child and responsible custodian of Mother Earth.

Shamanic Journey
Shamanic Journey


The dream world or collective unconscious is comprised not only of the human dreamings but all of creation: plants, animals, insects, stones and more.

Discover drug-free exercises to uncover a new Earth-centered perspective. Techniques such as guided visualization, breathwork, drumming and trance meditation can allow us to connect to our inner teachers and develop our inner terrain which we may revisit whenever we like!
