Animism 101=We are part of Earth & Nature is our Teacher
Sacred Land is Under our Feet

This 28 day course offers 29 multimedia lessons guided by Quynn Red Mountain and her/their Nature Teachers over the last 20 years. You can begin Lesson One on the start date of your choice and work with one lesson a day of the moon’s monthly cycle, or you can take your time and let it unfold in a different cycle. The stories, tales, places and journeys of this course are shared through the lens of Quynn’s relationships with the Beings of this Earth that she has had the pleasure to meet.

You have your Allies and Teachers who are waiting to be in relationship with you.

There are the sacred pilgrimage places that call to your soul and leave you wiser and more humble. There are also a countless number of Animal, Plant, Element and Rock Beings living right where you are every day. This course will help you notice, honor and listen to the many Teachers that are waiting to share their wisdom with you. Wherever you live and work, hey are all around you, right under your feet, and your nose.

Colonization and monotheism have created a reality of degradation and exploitation of our sacred natural world, it is time for each of us to deepen our personal relationships with the other People of this Earth…our “Other than Human” Kin. As we heal our separation, we are able to listen more deeply to the lessons and teachings of the sacred Web of Life so we can heal our selves, our communities, and the lands of this sacred Earth.

The 28 lessons (plus one bonus lesson) of this course highlights parts of the Natural world (water, sun, wind +) as well as an element  of Nature (migration, change, cooperation +). Also included: Full Circle Animism and Healing from Colonization. Each lesson includes a drum or rattle spirit world journey, photos, plus a video or audio segment that highlights a place in the western United States that has taught Quynn over her life. However, the purpose of each lesson is for you to notice and connect with the teachers where you are.

Each lesson includes 10-30 minutes of media.
You do not have to “finish” one lesson to go to the next.
