SOUL MEDIC Animist Practitioner Training
Do you know that there is a sacred Web of Life, and that you are a part of it? You are an Animist !
Earth Web Media’s Web of Life Animist Church seeks Earth honoring People around the globe who feel called to support others in their communities as Animist Soul Medic Practitioners in the Web of Life tradition*.
*The Web of Life Tradition- We are all connected by, and an equal thread in, the Sacred Web of Life. Earth Web Media (a legal Animist “Church”) trains and empowers Earth Honoring People of all Genders, Cultures, and Bio=Regions who are called by their Ancestors to practice the intuitive and healing arts on behalf of, and in support of, people in their communities. Together we create a sacred bridge to harmony within and between Humans, Non-Human Beings in all forms, and the Spirits of Earth and beyond.
Animist Soul Medic- . An Animist who is committed to utilizing their skills to hold sacred space for their Earth Honoring Kin using peer-to-peer tools (see below). An Animist Soul Medic is capable of holding space for those in need of spiritual support due to living in the dominant culture and in challenging life situations. Trained Animist Soul Medics utilize spiritual tools and ceremonies for clearing and balancing within Self and Communities.
Earth Honoring People are coming together, and accepting their Animist Nature. Animists have special needs. It is time for Earth Honoring People to learn how to tend to these needs within themselves, and to be able to hold space for others.
The dominant culture is detrimental, dangerous and deadly to Mystics, Intuitives, Blended Spirits, Witches and Healers of the diverse Earth Honoring Peoples commonly called Shamanic, Animist and Pagan. Many have been made to believe they are crazy, wrong, weird or evil for hearing the Earth Spirits and the Ancestors. As sensitive people in an increasingly mean culture, stress and trauma increase. As we remember who we are and the necessity of our medicine skills for a sick world, we are called to heal our soul wounds and competently train ourselves in the ways available to us. In the Web of Life Animist tradition, teachings and guidance come from Human teachers, as well as Nature Spirits, Non-Physical Teachers and Ancestors.
Calling those walking the nature, atheist, “shamanic”, witch and pagan paths who have been called by the ancestors to be a Soul Medic for your community. You are already holding space for others, so this training empowers you to step into the role more consciously and carefully. Animist Soul Medics are needed to tend the spiritual needs of our Earth Loving, Pagan, Animist, Witch and Queer communities. Empaths, Sensitives, Energy Workers, Healers, your gifts are needed now, so be clear about your role and how to tend yourself while you work with Earth honoring People who are seeking you.

Words that matter
*”Animism” (from Latin animus, -i “soul, life“) is the worldview that non-human entities (animals, plants, and inanimate objects or phenomena) possess a spiritual essence and that we all live together in a Sacred Web of Life. See our Statement of Beliefs here.
*”Animist”- One who knows they are a part of the sacred Web of Life
The Soul Medic series is a validating experience for me. It supports my confidence in the beliefs I have about tending soul wounds.I was reminded that it is vital to continually face my own soul wounds. This is an ongoing and lifelong process. Rather than feeling I need to do all of my own healing and then be open to others, the healing process of soul wounds is a way for us to all connect as animists. We all have soul wounds and to open ourselves and be vulnerable to each other, gives us the opportunity to share strength, compassion, love, and healing. We can hold space in a non-judging and non-shaming way. We can listen compassionately and let others speak their truth, while sharing our own truth. We can affirm our mutual animist experiences. The Soul Medic Workshop is a safe, supportive, kind, and insightful experience that empowers my life as an animist.

This Training emphasizes our Animist worldview, including offering respect and being open to communication with: animals, elements, plants, trees, spirit world, dream world, intuition, ancestors, spirit guides, other humans, and sacred self. This path honors diversity in our human family, and that there are many ways to interact with the living worlds. Genders, in all expressions, are an important aspect of the Web of Life.
I feel a grave responsibility as I embrace the concept of soul medic. I’ve helped others in the past, healed much in myself as well, but embracing the concept of soul medic is an entirely new perspective for me.I’m grateful for Quynn and her personal understanding of this concept. I’m also grateful for the unique nature each of us brings to the aspect of soul medic for ourselves.
