Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and a way of life.
The teachings of shamanism focus on our connection to nature and all of creation.What is Shamanism?
Shamanism • Healing • Journey • Ceremony • Pilgrimage
Journeying, ceremony, sacred dance and pilgrimages to places of power in nature are all essential aspects of Shamanism. Through these techniques the shamanic circle embraces us, unifying our lives with strength, healing and love.
Brant Secunda founded the Dance of the Deer Foundation in 1979. Its goal is to support the Huichol Indians in keeping their shamanic traditions alive, to preserve their cultural and economic survival, and to bring the power and joy of this ancient wisdom to our modern world.

It was a heart-changing and life-changing experience and completely transformed who I am. It gave me a strength within me, that has allowed me to face any obstacle with a calm centeredness I never felt before.Cathy Matyas, Mt. Shasta Retreat
Alaska is a land of such abundance and beauty, and the setting of this wilderness lodge on the Inside Passage is incomparable. Imagine the power of seeing bald eagles every day, of participating in ceremonies while whales frolic nearby, and of taking in the endless light of this season. It seems like a dream, but the blessings I received are very real.Marilyn Del Duca, Alaska Annual Retreat
We came to Alaska from the hustle and bustle of our life in Argentina. As soon as we put our feet on this beautiful land our anxiety and everything else faded away. The ceremonies opened our heart and soul like a flower blooming with the unstoppable force of nature. The eagles, the ocean, the glacier, the wisdom from Brant and his teachings and the great feeling of love between everyone…I cannot be more grateful for this amazing time and it will forever be engraved in my heart.Patricia Patuto & Christian Allende, Alaska Retreat
