Course Series Overview

"First of all, the healer must be one with the Earth. He has had to find the time to understand himself through the eyes of nature, learning who he is and where he fits in. He has had to break down the barriers that keep him separated from the natural world so that there is no inner or outer dimension. His prime source of understanding and knowledge must come to him from the Earth, and he must realize that he is nothing more than a hollow vessel that the Earth uses to heal. He listens with his heart not with his head, and he truly cares for people. He loves his enemies, for he believes that no matter what you send out, so too will you get in return. His care toward the land and his brothers and sisters is a powerful driving force. He is not only a healer of people but a healer of animals, plants, and Earth. His power can be felt in the love he has for his patient and the faith he has in the Creator."

Course Prerequisites


Course Description

The Caretaker class teaches you how to help the Earth to heal the scars and imbalances caused by so many years of misuse and abuse. The first part of the class will introduce you to the various checks and balances of nature; the interrelationship of plants to plants, animals to animals, and animals to plants. You will learn about the fabric of life, and how it is vitally important to the carrying capacity of the land. Once a deeper understanding of the balance of these delicate inter-relationships is reached, you will move into hands-on experience. At this point, the entire class will get together to identify a local problem or sickness in the land, and then work to rectify that problem, thus healing the Earth.
