Pixie Lighthorse mothers the nurture-deficient world by teaching Earth Medicine theory and skills which are akin to the ancestors’ ways. Her educational programs are used by helpers and healers to advance in their fields of study, and by individuals in the self-healing process.
She is the author of the Prayers of Honoring series, written to restore the bonds between people and nature while healing spiritual trauma. In 2017, she completed her third book, Boundaries & Protection: Honoring Self, Honoring Others.
She has created and taught over forty online educational courses applying integrative shamanism, animal and plant studies, and the Medicine Wheel. Visual Quest, her signature shamanic painting course, was developed for online and live audiences.
She defines Earth Medicine as the accumulated learnings modeled exquisitely by nature: the creatures, plants and geology which make up our world.
Lighthorse received her training in western shamanism between 2003-2012. She was born in California, growing up among farms, ranches, animals and wildlife. She studied literature and art at Cal State Northridge and several other higher learning institutions. She is an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. Feminine and earth-centered sensibilities are the cornerstones of her work.
She lives in Central Oregon with her partner, Sky Sharp, and two children, Miles and Ivy.
