The focus of this training is to strengthen our ability to be connected with the Web of Life, so we can hold more Sacred Power to make beneficial Change in our personal and community life, as well as our protection of Mother Earth. This series offers beautiful, challenging, quiet, dusty and gritty opportunities to become more connected with the Nature Spirits of these lands in the American southwest (Arizona). These teachers can assist you be the Change Maker and Nature Guardian you are meant to be. You can listen and learn how to best assist them, your Self, and all of us.
“Nature has been my greatest teacher. Everything I have become and will be is because I have been able to get quiet and listen for the teachings that ride the winds. My extensive time in Nature has been a powerful teacher. I have learned so much by being quiet and listening. I now know that I am a part of a strong “WE” that is always present with me. It is time to share this simple truth with those ready to experience it.” Quynn Red Mountain

My heartfelt thanks go to Quynn for bringing this wonderful ‘Nature Guardian’ training into being. She facilitated this series of experiences in a way that allowed each participant to find their own ‘voice’ and then helped them to become fluent in their chosen manner. Being able to bring out the best in each person is a talent. Quynn does not ‘teach you’; she helps you learn. Always insightful and thought provoking, Quynn supports with a light touch that encourages you to go as far as you possibly can…and then a bit more.
Due to this series I feel more confident in my ability to connect with my Spirit Guides and am ambitious to continue exploring the lessons that the Spirits hold for me
Now is a perfect time for you to dive into your deeply personal connection with the Nature Spirits around you (We call this “Animism”). Experiencing reflective, facilitated time in Nature opens the portal for you to more deeply trust your intuition and feel this connection in your daily life in the modern world so you can more clearly live your purpose.~

Your Sacred Nature Guide is Quynn Red Mountain- Called Oolah by her/their Spirit World (which means “One Who Balances”), Spirit Bridge Practitioner and Animist Minister. Quynn was called to a Shamanically influenced life when she was in the second half of her 20s. For the last 20+ years she has worked with individuals and groups to help them reconnect with the worlds around and within them.
She/They lived for 4-5 months each summer for 10 years (2000-2010) off the grid (in her van) on public lands around the western United States. In the forests, meadows and deserts she has learned to become an Animist Practitioner, and she is now guided to consolidate the elements of this role, and share them with those who feel called to be a Nature Guardian Animist Practitioner in the Web of Life tradition.
Please note that Quynn is not a counselor or licensed therapist. Quynn offers this training to assist each participant in their own healing and expansion experience. This work is not intended to replace any medical, or psychiatric care.
“I am reclaiming something that was lost to my family through time and persecution. I had always felt something was missing in my life, there was a void, this series filled that void. Reconnecting with my guides and my true nature in this life is a priceless gift.”
You have blessed and transformed me, given me the gift of myself that I had almost given up on searching for, and the words “thank you” do not even begin to cover the intensity and depth of my gratitude. It is like some sort of living embodiment of the Tao, or some magical entity you have called forth to heal, inspire and transform, not just us, but this world.”
“You provide a portal for infinite possibilities, without too much attachment to controlling the outcome.”
“I am grateful for this course as it has helped me to build confidence. Being in this space is a relief because it is a place where I feel I can express the “unknown” without prejudice and judgment, and that is refreshing.”
