Mystical Relation to Nature
Shamanic Journey Seminar

Direct Experience with the Sentient Universe
& Spiritual Insight Practices

with option to add Sedona Vortex Tour

with Sandra Cosentino

Be Your Own Seer - a Modern Day Mystic -
with timeless, archetypal pathways of the soul
updated for today's world.

Shamanism--the mystical path of direct knowing--is the worlds' oldest form of communion with Source and is based on a deep, living relation to Nature and inner pathway seer skills. Spiritual energies of the universe flow in a powerful, direct way from Source through Nature.

Learn how to do soul flight/shamanic journey in the context of today's world based on Sandra's decades of direct experience. Open connection with spirit helpers that are the living soul of nature for healing, guidance, new vitality and help ground spiritual awareness at a cellular level. You have a felt experience beyond our daily understanding that potentializes a shift in your inner vibrational field into new possibilities. Sandra mentors you and offers intuitive insights.

We weave insight journeys with earth energy connection and deep observing experiences.

Perhaps you will know a moment of "ecstatic union," of connection to the indwelling spirit of all things Navajos call this Nilch'i or inner wind. Peruvian mystics call this force kawsay pacha which is particularly present in powerful mountain settings. Once you know that connection, it opens a profound portal you carry with you always.

Soul flight/shamanic journey practices are very much alive and thriving in today's world. These are natural, innate talents that can be developed and are compatible with all spiritual traditions. These directly felt experiences beyond our daily understanding potentialize a shift in your inner vibrational field into new possibilities. And collectively, we are contributing to our own species' conscious evolution.

We will do nature awareness practices to deepen work. With the 6 hour version, we have more time to incorporate Earth & Sky Speaks to Us seminar practice in nature. Tribal medicine people of the indigenous world spent a lot of time outside watching and listening and intimately knew the cycles and energies of nature by direct experience.

Let nature speak to you and become part of your inner landscape in the way of these ancient peoples as we pay attention to signs, symbols and helper spirits.

These are natural, innate talents we all have that are compatible with all spiritual traditions. A new shamanism right for todays's times is being created by peoples from modern cultures.

Signs. Was that sudden swirl of wind that appeared when I stated my intention a sign? Or the coyote who crossed my path and then turned and stared at me? Do my energies and thought forms magnetize responses from nature?

Medicine animals in popular literature have been reduced to symbolic definitions so that even if we are open to their presence in our lives, we limit their expression by being overly defining. We miss the humor, the surprising variety of ways they reveal profound wisdom to us in our dreams, meditations and instant knowing. And even more importantly, they bring us direct energetic vibrations that help us release heavy energies and raise our frequency. They want to help us, all we have to do is ask and pay attention and allow these vibrant energies and loyal friendships to enrich our lives.

Each seminar is customized to guests and includes opening and closing ceremonial elements and a series of insight journeys interwoven with earth connection experience.

An inspiring seminar in nature--details below:
1. 4 hours with time for nature connections.
2. 6 hours, more depth of experience + training in ceremony

Options if you are on a limited time schedule:
3 hour outdoor seminar, but really not enough time to do this justice.
2 hour studio session with core shamanic journey practices. Much richer and more meaningful in nature context.

1. Mystical Nature Shamanic Journey Seminar and Nature Connection Practices at a private site by Oak Creek, 4 hours:

Shamanic journey is has more depth of meaning in the context of making deep observations and connections with the energies of nature. In this way you interact with and observe nature as indigenous medicine people have done for millennia. Shamanism is inner seeing, including shamanic journey skills, plus outer vibrational attunement that takes practice of engagment in a sentient way with nature, your inner nature, your dreams and signs coming to you.

We do this at a private site near Oak Creek near Sedona.

$135 each with 3 (discount for 4 more)
$185 each for 2 ($320 for 1)
entry fees, study sheets are included
Add 2 hour Sedona Vortex Journey:
$75 pp with min. of 3
$95 pp with 2 people

2. Mystical Insights Seminar, Nature Connection Practices & Ceremony,
6 hours

Held at a beautiful private site on the creek near Sedona area which has a large labyrinth, 12-spoke medicine wheel and 4 pathway totem pole ceremonial space. We will do insight journey work to connect with spirit helpers, ancestors, what has called you to Sedona, what is emerging in your vision and more.
This includes Mystical Nature Shamanic Journey Seminar, Earth and Sky Speak to Us experiences working with nature energies and training in core ceremonial practices and doing a ceremony to activate your intention (this will flow out of insight journey work). With the longer seminar, we can go deeper into insight journeying experience.

Sandra has 3 decades of experience leading ceremony and has gained much respect and insight by involvement with Native peoples as a role model in the way they engage with ceremony with their whole heart to bring forth positive outcomes. Study sheets included.
6 hours, $185 each with 3 or more, $250 each with 2, ($395 for 1, 5 hours)

3. Introduction to Shamanic Journey in Nature Seminar, 3 hours:
Core experiences of doing insight journey with some nature integration time, but highly recommend option 1 or 2 above as having more depth of experience and contextural meaning.
I rarely do the 3 hour seminar any more as it simply is not enough time to do meaningful work. I actually recommend the 6 hour version.

$100 pp with 3 or more
$140 pp with 2 people
$235 with 1 person

or you could do the core training as a 2 1/4 hour studio session if you have limited time

Nature is a mirror of perception as you walk with
attentive presence.


Deepening connection to the living body of Mother Earth
helps us rebalance

Eyes of raven penetrate both in waking
and dreamtime realities.

Entering with the open-hearted way of a child, direct perception-connection with tree, earth and sky
energies can occur.



When coyote crosses your path, or even more potently, looks you in the eye, you know things are going to change in unexpected ways.



Mythological animals come to us from the universal consciousness from deep archetypal terrains of knowing--bringing us unique energies.




Inner journeys are like lucid dreaming as you enter the reality of the spirit world where all is connected and alive with vibrant energy.


Ceremony is a powerful tool to activate intention
and work with energies.

"Nature recalls us to our innate richness. It heals us into Spiritual memory , into connection with our authentic sovereignty, our deeper choices, and our kinship with All-That-Is."



"In nature we move into our points of Power. This is not about necessarily getting our way, but is rather about being our way, and singing with the chorus of Life."

Participant Comments:

Sandra, I would like to THANK you again very much for an amazing day of journeying within..

I had so many very special "unbelievable" encounters with the Universe during this time in Arizona, both on metaphysical level when you took us through the journeys and in this physical reality...Universe is so generous with us and so "chatty." If one wants to communicate with the nature, one only needs to keep their heart open. Julia, New Zealand, July, 2006

"After we were with you, we all became very aware of the voices that talked to us in the beautiful nature we are surrounded in. We were in tune. Our time with you was joyous and brought forward great understanding. We cannot thank you enough for opening our minds and eyes and ears and hearts and on and on!!" Carol Truelove, Woodbury, NY

"You helped me so much during my week in Sedona -- to be with nature, listen, and learn from all the beauty around me. Thank you."
B.W., California

"I just want to thank you for a great experience. I had a great time, and it left me with very positive feelings. I have since done your meditation a couple of times. I had a great deal of stress to unload, which I did by the next day. I really needed to do that. Driving back I encountered a coyote and I saw into his eyes quite clearly. This was the animal that appeared to me in the first part of the meditation."
C.W., Boston, Massachusetts.
