Honoring Dreams & Messengers with Hawk
Honor the awakening energies of the position of East, Red-Tailed Hawk, and the element of AIR.
In the season of the Beginner, study the spirited workings of the conscious Higher Mind-that handy tool which allows us to override our broken thinking which leaves us vulnerable to spiritual and physical illness.
It’s the time of planting seeds, saddling up for unknown adventures, and taking the little bit we do have during this time of new beginnings and creating a compass and a toolkit for the journey ahead.
Dreams, animal medicine and visions are held up to the light for insights about what’s within and what’s ahead. Keep a dream journal and a record of the animal medicine and messengers which cross your path.
The medicine which comes to you tells you a story about your life, and the dreams which come and sometimes recur have deep meaning for where you’re at on your path. Tracking them and putting them together in the active solar season results in a map for new possibilities. Sometimes messengers can be mysterious! Learning to weave what’s going in inside of you with what’s manifesting in the outer world is a tremendous gift, and often, we’re doing it unconsciously without even knowing it.
Journey and work with guided meditation to birth a new chapter. If you are working on creative projects- a book, a big idea-this is and ideal time to weave some magic into your work, honor the muse in a ritual setting and change your thinking to a supportive, fortified ally.
Honoring Community & Belonging with Wolf
Honoring the position of North, the medicine of Wolf, and the element of Earth.
Examine how you walk in the world and gather with others to build upon dreams, collaborate, love and celebrate.
This self-study course covers building community, sustaining community, healing your sense of belonging, honoring your need to belong, and discovering what kind of community benefits you as an individual. Also included is a section on the importance of belonging, of honoring alone time, and re-culturing for inclusivity, as well as allowing time in relationships for stepping back from existing communities to allow for needed change. Take a good look at your needs for being alone (without thinking of yourself as a Lone Wolf) and right nourishment so that you can show up strong in community when you choose to.
Intention Setting with Horse
To strengthen your medicine and to honor what wants to come through you, journey with Horse for clarity of purpose. Horse is on a mission of freedom, and the wild ones possess the spirit of forward movement, striving, and transcendence. Travel with Horse to open up the portals to dreams, to your raw power, to highly sensitive attunement to What Is and What Will Be. Open your heart and connect it’s purpose with your mind to fully embody your spiritual adventure.
The practice and ritual of shamanic journey is to heal what is submerged beneath layers of living to get to what resides in the original self. By taking a trip inward on the drum beat, we open up ourselves to fast-track healing and acknowledgment of what lives inside of us which must be remembered, honored, brought up to the surface for healing, cleared, and released. When we activate our true purpose, we honor the gift of life we were given and begin a new period with fresh awareness.
Parenting with Coyote
Coyote leads us into our adaptable nature in order to parent children and teens with compassion for who they are, what qualities they came to Mama Earth with, and for where they’re headed. Parenting in a sacred way in the modern era/new dimension requires effort, sacrifice, clear and authentic perception of you and your children, as well as tools and effective language for being in spiritual relationship with the young ones.
Coyote has a divine way of working well with what she’s got. Our children’s personalities are full of unexpected challenges and joys, all of which require us to adapt in order to meet the needs of their precious souls. But beware! This is a not a fluffy instructional- there will be plenty of talk about boundaries, healthy limits, natural consequences (and how difficult is is to watch them unfold) as well as setting reasonable expectations. Parenting for wildness and respect/responsibility on Earth, as opposed to parenting to social/cultural standards, or worse, for behavior, calls for an entirely different set of rules. And sometimes, no rules at all.
Creative Courage with Rabbit
A symbol of abundant fertility, Rabbit guides us to flush fear out of the shadows and tap our creative resources for the future. In the direction of the East, everything is possible, all dreams can be realized when we’re willing to leap! With Rabbit, we plant seeds for what we want to inspire for the growing season. Bring your visions for creativity and magic, so that we can create a healthy growing environment around them. The shadow side of Rabbit medicine keeps us hiding in a hole. Flush out fear and get to creating! Magic happens inside of the Unknown, this course helps you utilize shamanic journeywork to identify your magic and bring it forward. When we clear fear and allow ourselves to open to Earth and Sky energies for for fuel, fertility flows in abundance. Align with what you’re building and establish all necessary support systems around you to launch your ideas with confidence.
Manifesting Abundance with Buffalo
What are your ideas about abundance? This visionary course gives you a powerful dose of prosperity and abundance magick with Buffalo, Queen of the Plains and meeter of all needs. It will take you through the process of creating the world you want to live in, beginning with your immediate surroundings. Lift your visions up in community and consider allowing yourself to exist as you were meant to. Strengthen the relationship between you and your vision, and show up to community in your full magic.

Identify the resources all around you and learn to ask for and receive help, while cultivating a bold voice to support your vision.

Raising Kings with Golden Eagle
Share this content with your fathers, sons, partners and brothers for this long-awaited SouLodge course. The women of SouLodge are always in rigorous dialogue about how to interact more effectively with, understand, and honor our male counterparts. Our work with shadows, boundaries and fair communication has led us to want to continue this dialogue with the men in our lives. The time has come for next-level harmony and by inviting the men to dialogue with us, we’re vowing to raise our level of respect, honesty, and faith in our abilities to share the throne with you.
The focus of this course is to find new ways to perceive and honor the men and boys in our lives, as well as to draw upon the inspiration of those who have dedicated their lives to the study of men’s rites of passage.
Boundaries with Mountain Lion
Mountain Lion helps us to form a solid and respectful practice of relational boundaries. Education is needed about respectful behavior in our culture, and boundaries is all about self-respect and respect for others. One of the ways we create a culture of respect is with the natural and flowing use of appropriate language. It takes time and practice to get comfortable holding a graceful space of integrity around you. There are so many beautiful ways to take care of yourself with the right words, and you’ll explore all of them in this self-paced course. The SouLodge approach is to “know what you need and ask for what you want”, so that you have an authentic place to begin. The trick is to language your requests in a way that honors YOU and also the person across from you at the negotiation table in a way that feels natural to both of you-which requires sticking to the truth.
Think of boundaries as your invisible lines in the sand which are consciously put into place for your protection and preservation, while also protecting others from your psychic debris, which can sometimes get projected inadvertently if care isn’t taken.
Children are often the recipients of our debris (violations), which makes this training course important for modeling to the little ones while helping them to see parents honoring one another. The parenting segment of this course isn’t just for those with babes- it’s also extremely helpful in reparenting oneself. We also cover setting healthy limits and age-appropriate boundaries.
Strength and Vulnerability with Deer
Deer balances the predatory nature found in Wolf, Mountain Lion, Bear and other Type-Apexes in your lineup of medicine helpers. Deer helps us to find our softness, our capacity for nurturing and also our fierceness. Deer’s antlers are like antennae which connect them to the clear messages of the heavenlies, while four hoofs keep them rooted to the ground.
This is important to carry with you when doing soul work because there will be two sides to every story living within you. There will be a curse, followed by a blessing. A wrong done to you, and the courage it took to stand up for yourself. A fragmented, lost piece, and the joyful recovery and re-integration of it. Blind spots and a-ha moments.
Deer balances the assertive work we do with Black Panther and Mountain Lion, and compliments our creative explorations with Rabbit and Buffalo. She’s here to work with us around vulnerability and strength, together at last, and to help support our families in times of transition.
Grow closer to the medicine of Deer, learn to embody it’s grace and majestic strength in matters of cleaning up your energy, fortifying your family relationships and alliances to your spiritual guides, honoring what is sacred in you, and standing proud in community knowing that your Voice counts.
Honoring Psychic Abilities with Fox
Goldmining the Shadows with Black Panther
Goldmining the Shadows with Panther is a walk with the Dark Feminine, wherein you will stalk your own shadows and call them out into the light for insight and transmutation. This session focuses on relationship skills and creating language for times when shadow is present and muddling your truth with past hurts. It also brings awareness to when we’re in a shadow state and why, helping us to track the occurrences and stories which keep us in an immature state. If the same dark issues and patterns are coming up for you again and again, needing language support to communicate to your loved ones when in a shadow state, or are seeking to deeply honor both dark and light in your world, shadow work may be for you. Black Panther helps us hear the inner child needing healing, honor her, and also put ourselves back in the driver’s seat.
Sacred Voice with Raven
The advocate Raven strengthens the medicine of Sacred Voice and the ability to speak the truth on your behalf and for others. Known as a companion scout for wolves and other predators, the most astute and innovative of all birds, soothsayers of the Sky Nation, Raven is also a Watcher. This means that they have mystical knowledge of all realms – subconscious, conscious and spiritual. Clever and abundant, ravens are lords and ladies of the skies because of their intelligent use of voice.
Ravens are noted for far more than a croaky caw. With over 30 different vocalizations, they utilize many different calls for varying circumstances. Something Raven is very good at is warning other animals of trespassers. This is very helpful when working with one’s own Sacred Voice because it assists us in knowing which voice is ours and which voice is coming from a place which does not represent us. We have an opportunity to call out the trespassers with the help of Raven and restore truth to our own voices.
Nurturing Release with Bear
Bear finds us exploring healing practice with hands, voice and energy, the study of archetypes, reading signs and symbols, death and honoring the divine beauty of the life cycle, as well as creating a foundation of gratitude with the Give-Away ceremony. Snuggling down with the Earth Mother finds participants in this course healing areas within which require deep nourishment and healing of the mother wound. By learning how to heal and mother oneself, we step squarely into our power as women. As a live session, this was a very sweet and restful season, perfect for those of us who wanted to take a break, unplug, do some cellular and medicinal healing while lumbering along at Bear’s pace. A strong and willing protector known for her fierce mothering skills, Bear takes us into her herby cave and delivers a healing. Enjoy seven live recorded shamanic journeys as part of this course, to strengthen your practice and receive messages from your guides and Bear about how to create a vital state of being during trying times.
Regeneration with Snake
As a symbol of shedding the skin and restoring during processes of transition, Snake guides you out of your old skin and into your new in order to experience a celebration of renewal. Snake is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, in full contact with the Earth, she embodies sensuality. With her finely-tuned perception, we’ll move through the darker territory of our psyches to befriend and shed light on the subverted places, and learn to love our ancient, archetypal, serpentine woman-ness in a new way. The final section of this course introduces the archetype of the Wounded Healer. Because those who have healed early injuries help other wounded children and adult children, it can be cathartic to acknowledge what this role looks like, how vital it is to our culture and how you can utilize your gift of healing. Dance with your infinite nature with the Cosmic Serpent and Mother of the Universe.

Horse: Transportation Beyond Self-Imposed Limitations
Deeply sensitive Horse calls us to do our deep level healing work, to know our power as humans, but also as spiritual creatures connected to the Mother and every force of nature. Horse’s intuitive ability is why equine healing programs exist, because they know what’s afoot before it happens, and their ability to detect the subtlest of energies teaches us to do the same. The Greek word for Horse is ikkos, meaning “the great light”. Allow the magic and mystery of Horse to brighten you, to open up the possibility of progressive movement beyond your wildest imagination. Horse helps you take your needs seriously and integrate them with the needs of the Earth. Acknowledge your delicate systems while engaging your sensual power of instinct and endurance. Examine ego, and it’s current role for you. Horse is medicine for overcoming fear, doubt and pain when forward movement is desired.
