SAEM Medicine Bag Training

Healing Gifts of the Unseen World

One of the unexpected gifts of moving all of my teachings online has been that the content and approach at every level have been reviewed, considered, and reconsidered.  Not just because we are meeting online, but because the requirements for successful living today have shifted, and we all need to go deeper.

There are some logistical changes – we’ll meet weekly for 14 weeks, instead of two full weekend days every month.

There will be a greater focus on the Shamanistic aspect of Sacred Anatomy – how our deepest 21st Century yearnings can be met with an understanding of the true nature of ritual, the most ancient healing tradition.

There will be a greater focus on the magic of healing and working with energy.

How do we purposefully create the “space” – that magical environment – within which our clients (and ourselves) may heal?

How do we make that quantum leap to a new way of being in the world?

These 14 weeks will be filled with powerful instruction in SAEM clearings, procedures, and healing techniques. You will develop a true “medicine bag” to use during your own one-on-one sessions with your classmates, your family and your friends.  By the end of this course, you will be a certified Medicine Bag Carrier, able to confidently engage in a session that reveals your client’s truest nature and creates a container for transformation.

And along with so many techniques and procedures, always focusing on the fundamentals of how to invoke the magic of healing.


Many Blessings,

Practitioner Training?

This year (2021) our class schedule allows a glide path from the first Edge training through Energetic Hygiene, into Med Bag, and on to Practitioner Training, all completed before the end of 2022
This has not always been the case.  If you are considering this professional path, you will not have to wait an additional year to enroll in the advanced classes.
The last Edge Training this year began on July 22, enrollment is open until August 5
Our last Hygiene Training begins September 22
