Traditions of Teaching at the Web of Life

We practice the tools that consistently show themselves in Earth honoring cultures, including: honoring the sacred circle, activating trance with a consistent rhythm, dreaming, honoring the Earth and Sky cycles, elements and directions in Nature, intuition, trance, soul restoration, ritual, interaction with spirit world, ceremony, divination, storytelling, connecting with animal and plant allies, blessings/prayers, dance and sacred singing. Each person consults their own Spirit Guides about how to practice these arts.

This path is for anyone, and it can especially be helpful for anyone who is the first generation in their family, after numerous generations of silence/denial, who openly feels their connection with the Sacred Web of Life.  When you learn to connect to it, Spirit World teaches and guides each person in their healing and each Animist in their sacred arts. In these times we are called to remember what our ancestors knew, and enact these ways in our daily lives. In this time, we are coming “full circle”.

Each Minister is guided by their Spirit Guides and Ancestors to create your own Ministry, in a way that has meaning for you.  You will create your own way to share the Animist message in this evolving world, in collaboration with others of like mind.

A recent recording about the upcoming round of Animist Minister Ordainment Program
Reflections from Past Trainings:

This year I made art I healed I cried I felt Joy I embodied myself. It was a magical un-namable ever-present field of support, leaving me with a sense of being a bit more filled with love with confidence with hope thank you.

I have gained a deep sense of Animist community and the charge to further that in my future, and to help bring that feeling to others.  I am getting more of a sense of the great potential that a ‘minister’ holds for creating Animist community.

I am realizing and actualizing a practical method of shamanic healing practice to bring to the world, and building a strong foundation for my life grounded in Animist practice.

Thank you Quynn for bringing us together for seeing us for creating the space for Magical things to happen I feel for once I belong to the Earth and it is my task to bring this sense of belonging to others.

I really appreciate your leadership and guidance the wisdom you have offered and that you created this at all.  This last year was this last year so much changed and shifted for me and I know it wouldn’t have had you not created this space this program and gave me a reason and I’m owed to trust myself. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

When I joined this program it was my intention to further explore the spiritual realms. During this year I’ve been pushed past my boundaries external as well as internal. I’ve traveled the full spectrum of being in all Angry elated and an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. This program truly brought my vision into focus and has allowed me to explore all the possibilities.

There have been years where I’ve looked back and reflection and been in almost disbelief at all of the things that have happened. This last year in the Animist Ministry program has been one of those years. The lessons healing and knowledge I’ve received has been profound one of the most liberating lessons and insights has been to recognize who I am under the identity imposed On Me by this Society. I remember who I am before I was told and conditioned to be a drone. This year and my experiences in this program with all the amazing people in it has reminded me of why I came here. To help Humanity could reconnect with Spirit the Earth and their Inner Light.

This adventure with you will forever be with me the time words and braces tears everything that I have experienced from you and from this program has truly touched my life.

Validation begins with the prospective of similarity in the stories of others. Sharing is a key element of the animist experience. The entrainment of Rhythm and intention is a major take away from this year.  A great opportunity to hear Reflections from a sympathetic population.

This year has ended with reflection reflection of myself through others are pained to be a part of a continuing group. I now have many teachers. I have found an earth-based we. The ability to consciously hold Space is quite a lovely thing I am grateful to have learned through this process and program.
