Do you know that there is a sacred Web of Life, and that you are a part of it? You are an Animist!
Earth Web Media’s Web of Life Animist Church seeks those who feel called to support Earth Honoring People in their communities as Animist Soul Medic Practitioners in the Web of Life tradition*.
*The Web of Life Tradition- We are all connected by, and an equal thread in, the Sacred Web of Life. Earth Web Media (a legal Animist “Church”) trains and empowers Earth Honoring People of all Genders, Cultures, and Bio=Regions who are called by their Ancestors to practice the intuitive and healing arts on behalf of, and in support of, people in their communities. Together we create a sacred bridge to harmony within and between Humans, Non-Human Beings in all forms, and the Spirits of Earth and beyond.
The dominant culture is detrimental to Mystics, Intuitives and Healing Facilitators of the diverse Peoples around the world commonly called Shamanic, Animist and Pagan. Many have been made to believe they are crazy, wrong, weird or evil for hearing the Earth Spirits and the Ancestors. As sensitive people in an increasingly mean culture, stress and trauma increase. As we remember who we are and the necessity of our medicine skills for a sick world, we are called to heal our soul wounds and competently train ourselves in the ways available to us to hold space for people as they restore balance within themselves. In the Web of Life Animist tradition, teachings and guidance come from Human teachers, as well as Nature Spirits, Non-Physical Teachers and Ancestors.
Calling those walking the nature honoring paths who have been called by the ancestors to be a Soul Medic for your community. You are already intuitively doing this work, so we call you to step into the role more consciously and carefully. Animist Soul Medics* are needed to tend the spiritual needs of our Earth Loving, Pagan, Animist, Witch and Queer communities. Empaths, Sensitives, Energy Workers, your gifts are needed now, so be clear about your role and how to tend yourself while you work with Earth honoring People who are seeking you.
*”Animism” (from Latin animus, -i “soul, life“) is the worldview that non-human entities (animals, plants, and inanimate objects or phenomena) possess a spiritual essence and that we all live together in a Sacred Web of Life. See our Statement of Beliefs here.
*”Animist”- One who knows they are a part of the sacred Web of Life
*Animist Soul Medic- . An Animist who is committed to utilizing their skills to hold sacred space for their Earth Honoring Kin using peer-to-peer tools (see below). An Animist Soul Medic is capable of holding space for those in need of spiritual support due to living in the dominant culture and in challenging life situations. Trained Animist Soul Medics utilize spiritual tools and ceremonies for clearing and balancing within Self and Communities.
*We use the words “shamanic” healing arts to describe the intuitive and visionary tools, available to all cultures, that help to guide us in this living world. Included are the shamanic journey, revelation through trance, divination, dreams, intuition and dialog with “Nature”. There are many varieties and faces of these practices, yet similar threads run through cultures of the Human tribes. In our FULL CIRCLE practice, while guidance and training is handed down to us by our living human elders, we are taught the specifics of our personal practice by the guides and ancestors through our connection to our shamanic and dreaming mind.
Animist Soul Medic training takes place over three weekends. Upcoming offerings of these weekends (see below) take place in Tucson, AZ.
The three weekend version of this training can be conducted in any place that requests it (contact Quynn) and can be offered as a 1 week intensive.
Each weekend is self-contained with 5 subject areas that can assist Earth Honoring People through challenging times. You can complete Weekend 1 alone, or complete Weekend 1 and 2, but when you complete the series of 3 weekends, you will be considered a Web of Life Animist Soul Medic and a member of the emerging Animist Healing Guild of Web of Life Soul Medics, Practitioners (Nature Guardians) and Ministers (Spirit Bridges).
Upon successful completion of program, the graduate can apply to participate in the Web of Life Animist Minister Program.
