Shamanism Without Borders Earth Tending is now available:
Shamanism Without Borders is a Global Response Network of the Society for Shamanic Practice.
“We travel together, passengers on a little space ship, dependent on its vulnerable reserves of air and soil; all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft.”
“Last year, I had a life-changing experience at 90 years old. I went to space, after decades of playing an iconic science-fiction character who was exploring the universe. I thought I would experience a deep connection with the immensity around us, a deep call for endless exploration.
I was absolutely wrong. The strongest feeling, that dominated everything else by far, was the deepest grief that I had ever experienced.
I understood, in the clearest possible way, that we were living on a tiny oasis of life, surrounded by an immensity of death. I didn’t see infinite possibilities of worlds to explore, of adventures to have, or living creatures to connect with. I saw the deepest darkness I could have ever imagined, contrasting so starkly with the welcoming warmth of our nurturing home planet.
This was an immensely powerful awakening for me. It filled me with sadness. I realized that we had spent decades, if not centuries, being obsessed with looking away, with looking outside. I did my share in popularizing the idea that space was the final frontier. But I had to get to space to understand that Earth is and will stay our only home. And that we have been ravaging it, relentlessly, making it uninhabitable.”

As Earth Day approaches, our thoughts naturally turn to loving, honoring and helping Mama Earth.
Please join Nancy Lankston in a shamanic exploration with Mama Earth.
Let’s journey in the shamanic style and ask the land and waters how we can help. Let’s call on the Celtic Goddess Danu – the ancient, primordial mother of all things – and ask for guidance.
How can we be of service?
What does the land ask of us?
What do the waters have to share?
How can we tend to the needs of our mother Danu / Pachamama / Gaia on Earth Day and every day?
This is a Free online Zoom event
