One White Horse Standing
Indigenous cultures refer to medicine as the essence of the person, place
or thing. In our terms it is the
essence of being a spiritual, physical, mental and emotional being. Wolf
medicine is about the essence of
wolf spirit. Wolves are very ritualistic—in as many ways as humans.
They live by carefully defined rules.
There are specific territories that are sacred. Their social behavior
is based upon a hierarchical structure.
Each has its place and function within it.
The wolf teaches you to know who you are and to develop strength, confidence,
and surety so that you do
not have to demonstrate and prove yourself to all. Wolves have a complex
communication system, using
body language. If you have difficulty conveying your moods and ideas

Every member of the pack knows its position in relationship to everyone

Wolf Medicine Workshop
The Wolf Medicine workshop is an initiation—a birthing process
to more fully be who you are within the
world. The focus is to discover the innate healing presence within yourself
that have not been allowed to be
seen or heard, let alone to mature as part of who you are. We will nurture
those parts so as to begin to
create a more centered and balanced life. Our intent is to create the
sacred space that will enable you to
fully birth who you are, shedding the parts that no longer serve the
fullness of your presence. Each person
will be given the opportunity to be initiated into the wolf medicine.
