Ritual Leadership Training & Watercarrier Programs
The world, and our lives, are burning — a relentless fire.
This is the challenge facing watercarriers, those capable of retrieving the forgotten waters of healing — and returning them to community through authentic ritual.
Leadership skill and healing knowledge combine in the art and science of ritual; they are two sides of the same coin. Indivisible by nature. Needed by culture.
The commonly misused term “shaman” refers to these water-carriers who have earned the skills of spirit and soul work. Their connection to the Other World carries the responsibility to become a bridge, activating the knowledge, medicine and powers of healing they earn, for themselves and others. The business of ritual.
What are these mythic waters?
The Waters of Life bless the living to bring life alive.
The Waters of Death bless the dead to bring spirit alive so remains can be cherished, and the ended, finished.
Water carriers know the boundary between the living and the dead. They know how to enlist hungry ghosts into their proper vocation as advisors and ancestors.
