Listening to the Authentic Spiritual Self

August 25 – 28, 2023 at Minnowbrook Conference Center, located on Blue Mountain Lake in the picturesque Adirondacks!

This 3 ½ -day healing & wellness program provides an indigenously inspired view of the nature of being human in this 3-dimensional world. Diane and Jordan masterfully weave their unique and innovative healing perspectives with you.  They will share traditional and contemporary indigenous healing practices to help individuals dismantle their trauma patterns and hidden obstacles we have all accumulated because of innate responses to difficult and painful experiences of our lives.  The trauma informed process they share, acknowledges ones past while helping the person step into their personal power and clear the way to reach tomorrows goals with more self-awareness, ease, and clarity.

By attending the 3 ½ -day healing and wellness program, you will:

  • Learn Indigenous healing practices.
  • Focus first on the self, and how to share and support others.
  • Explore the background of indigenous cultural practices.
  • Learn how to get started with personalized rituals and tools for your own growth and healing.
  • Gateway for taking the next step with deeper ceremonial practices.
  • An indigenously inspired view of the nature of being human in the 3-dimensional world.
  • Facets and application of the practices as a basis for trauma-informed care.

Fostering Emergence of the Good Mind is an energetically-referenced, emotionally-focused, body-based approach to healing and wellness drawn from a traditional Native healing methodology rooted in the story of Tadodaho; the man with the hair of snakes who was cleansed and healed by the Peacemaker and his delegation.
