Song of the Universe
We open our hearts to hear the ‘The Song of the Universe’ singing to us of the unseen mysteries of our existence. Although we have no answers to our origins and why we are here, we can learn to celebrate the uniqueness of who we are and how we touch the world.
The specific medicine wheels we explore over this two-day training open a portal into ancient knowledge describing the energy and intent of all the exists across the universe. They help us to cast aside the illusions of isolation and separation which keep us feeling lost and alone.

The Journey of the Rainbow Warrior
These shamanic teachings are for those who thirst for ancient proven ways to understand themselves more clearly. They show us how to develop a more intimate, compassionate, and harmonious relationship with ourselves, the world and others.
The Rainbow Warrior is ready to wake up and discover the wealth of knowledge, magick & wisdom within, & harness this power to create a balanced life filled with beauty.
There are five Rainbow Warrior Training Weekends which collectively offer a comprehensive introduction to shamanism. Each one is rich with knowledge, teachings, tools & ceremonies rooted in the study of nature, psychology, human physiology, spirituality, science & philosophy.
This particular weekend ventures into the exploration of the Song of the Universe.
Other weekends focus on the following themes:
Our Children’s Planet
Journey of Cycles
Our Identity
Human Luminosity

These weekends open the door to an olde way of apprenticeship. Should the student wish to continue their training beyond the five weekends, they become an apprentice committed to becoming an empowering leader, walking their talk and supporting the evolution of themselves & others.
Lou & Laurel are your Medicine Guides on this Rainbow Warrior Journey. With more than 40 years of combined experience, knowledge, and wisdom, together they hold a sacred and powerful space for healing, growth and transformation. They truly 'Walk their Talk' as they continue to follow the call of spirit to fulfill their destiny as Rainbow Warriors.
