For this class series I will be sharing with you the basic techniques and exercises that I use before, during and after a zoo visit to properly introduce myself, initiate an interaction or conversation with the animals, and create ceremonies with and for them. During the classes I will also be introducing you to specific Animal Ambassadors who have chosen to work with us more in-depth.
The animals know a wild way to heal, and want to share this knowledge with us.
Our indigenous ancestors had a different relationship with the natural world than our modern world does—our ancestors were aware that animals, plants, trees, stones, fire, water, winds, earth (All Our Relations) possess a spirit and are our allies. Those allies are calling to us to listen and learn from them.
Our world seems to be moving faster and faster, causing us to feel personally depleted and off balance, with no clear understanding of how to replenish and renew our life force.
Do you yearn for a closer connection with animals and nature?
The news about climate change and its impact on us, the Earth, and all its inhabitants can feel overwhelming. There are stories on every media outlet about the dwindling numbers of animals, loss of habitat, and increase in destructive weather patterns—life out of balance on a global scale. Clearly a different way of walking on the Earth is desperately needed.
But what can one person do?
Several years ago I was gifted with a powerful vision in Windwalker’s Message for the World. That we needed to work together on an energetic and spiritual level in order to create positive shift on a global scale.
I was told that we needed to heal our inner gardens and tend to our outside connections, and that could be accomplished more quickly and easily with the assistance of our ancient allies, the Stone, Plant, and Animal People—All Our Relations—with whom we share this world.
The result is this 8-week shamanic teleclass series created at their request, and taught by All Our Relations with the intention of restoring the ancient balance and renewing the integrity of the connections that we share.
Through spider web-like lines we are all connected one to another, and in this place and time there are torn areas that need mending. Through simple shamanic practices, and with the assistance of All Our Relations in both the physical realm and the realm of spirit, students will learn how to nurture their own personal healing while supporting the animals.
All Our Relations invite you to join them in personal and global healing.
Open your heart to the Animal, Plant, and Stone Teachers.
Listen to their wisdom. Feel their love.
Experience their healing power.
Together we are strong!
Strengthen your ability to communicate with animals and nature
You’ll begin learning how to connect with animals and nature by embarking on a shamanic journey to meet the compassionate animal spirit ally that stalks you, seeking to share its wisdom and secrets.
Your Power Animal offers you the ability to:
• perceive the world through its senses
• share in its strengths, insights, and personal characteristics
• increase healing and spiritual growth
• guidance for choosing your life path and achieving your goals
Each week, with the support and assistance of your power animal we will meet one or more of the other allies—Stone People, Animal People, Plant People, Earth, Water, Fire, Air (Winds)—listen to their messages and partake of their wisdom. Each call is designed to empower you on your journey.
In 8 weeks you will learn how to:
• stay energetically clean in a dirty world
• restore balance with the assistance of a Stone Teacher
• speak with Animal and Plant Teachers
• improve animal communication skills
• connect with the Earth and the sacred anywhere
• synchronize with the natural cycles
• create transformation
• release limiting fear, anger, grief
• join with All Our Relations in ceremony
With the assistance of ancient allies you will be able to heal:
• the pain of personal loss of a beloved animal companion
• the grief and pain you feel over global events such as the tragic deaths of Cecil the Lion and Marius the giraffe and the senseless killing of wolves, elephants and other wildlife
• compassion fatigue encountered in animal rescue and healing work
With the help of All My Relations, your shamanic allies,
and holding space in balance with a foot in both worlds,
you are not power LESS or power FULL—you are power WITH.
By practicing the weekly exercises you will be able to:
• strengthen your intuitive abilities
• restore harmony and balance to your life
• improve your relationship with domestic and wild animals while at the same time helping to heal the Earth.
What you will receive during this training:
• weekly live 60-90 minute telecalls (available via phone or internet, and recorded in case you miss one)
• opportunity to ask questions on the call
• invitation to join private Facebook Forum where you can ask questions, share experiences, and receive mentoring assistance
• assignments to help gain experience, support growth and confidence
• reference materials supplied as pdf files
By the end of the eight-week series of classes students will have received a strong foundation of connections and practices that they will always be able to call upon for personal and global healing.
Non-lineage based training, no previous experience required.
While I will be holding space and listening to All Our Relations using my training in Peruvian shamanism, the training itself is non-lineage based, and no previous training is required.
“It’s the connection I’ve been wanting and I now have the tools to strengthen it and continue ceremony with powerful allies.”
What I learned from Bones, Stones, Feathers, and Fur is that the course is only as good as the teacher and Rose is exceptional. Rose holds the class in a sacred and personal way that allows even a greenhorn like me to feel comfortable participating and sharing. The information is something that I will continue to review and practice. It’s the connection I’ve been wanting and I now have the tools to strengthen it and continue ceremony with powerful allies.
“I think that if you only want to take one class in life THIS IS IT!!!”
Rose, thank you from the bottom of my heart for this class! I find it lifechanging and I love every bit of it. You are a natural teacher with great knowledge and a good sense of humor and a lot of beautiful stories to tell. I think that if you only want to take one class in life THIS IS IT!!!
“Bones, Stones, Feathers and Fur was the most wonderful gift I have ever given myself.”
In our first session of Bones, Stones, Feathers and Fur Rose said, “Tonight you are going to meet the animal that has been trying to get your attention, the animal that has been stalking you, trying to connect with you,” and my mind immediately said “oh dear, I’ve signed up for 8 weeks of this, what on earth is she talking about?” At the end of that session, after emerging from the guided shamanic journey, where I met a glorious deer, I realized how right Rose was. The curtains in my room are covered in deer, I have a family of deer carvings beside my bed and a painting of a stag on the wall! Bones, Stones, Feathers and Fur was the most wonderful gift I have ever given myself. The teleclass worked wonderfully well, and the support and guidance from Rose throughout the course was both practical and personalized. I also found Rose a funny and generous teacher. Thank you Rose, I am looking forward to my next course.
“Thank you again, Rose, for guiding this amazing journey.”
I have learned so much through this class, Rose De Dan. I have learned what to do with the connection I’ve always felt to nature…how to reap the wisdom and assistance all our allies have to offer, how to show gratitude and honor our allies for their assistance and wisdom and how to let go and stay energetically light.
Thank you again, Rose, for guiding this amazing journey, sharing your wisdom and insight and all you do for our animal friends!
—Laura Thomas, South Carolina
“The gifts are so beautiful.”
This class has made me sit with our relations for a longer time…to really KNOW them rather than to just read information and know about them. The gifts are so beautiful. I feel so humbled, grateful, and deeply reverent. I will not forget them…ever. Thank you.”
“I know that this class will always mark a turning point in my life.”
Rose, thank you so much for such an amazing class. The final class was indeed bittersweet but then it dawned on me that this is just the beginning. You opened so many doors and provided me with an awesome tool kit. I know that this class will always mark a turning point in my life. Much peace, love, and light to you.
“I’ve enjoyed this whole experience so much. I walk away changed, and for that I am GRATEFUL ♡♡♡♡♡♡”
—Debbie S., New Jersey
“I want to thank you for this class. It has already exceeded my expectations. I am very grateful.”
—Stacey Wall in Masschusetts after second class
“This class has opened doors for me beyond what I thought was possible.”
I feel so blessed by all that has come out of this class. It has opened doors for me beyond what I thought was possible. I had been dealing with some very difficult issues and loneliness was very big and in my face. Every day now I find myself realizing how absolutely not alone I am. I had an awareness of working with All Our Relations before, but my connection deepened exponentially from taking your class. I am filled with gratitude.
“I’ve found your classes to be the most valuable I’ve taken so far…”
Rose, thank you for all you’ve taught us! I’ve found your classes to be the most valuable I’ve taken so far and are instructions I will use for a life time. I’ve always felt connected to nature, but your classes have really shown me how to communicate with it.
“I learned so much that I can use each day.”
Thank you Rose for such a great class. I learned so much that I can use each day. I was told by my Guides that this was where I needed to be.
“Thank you for leading us into this magical world where everything is alive…”
I wanted to thank you for offering this very inspiring course! Thank you for leading us into this magical world where everything is alive and ready to communicate with us and share their wisdom. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences for us to learn from each other! Bones, Stones Feathers and Fur is part of my life!
“…thank you for all that you’ve shared.”
Rose De Dan, thank you for all that you’ve shared and this class. I was in the right place and the universe brought this class and you to my awareness. I cannot thank you enough!!! Namaste!
“I have so much gratitude…”
Thank you for sharing all of these amazing stories of your life with All Our Relations. I have so much gratitude for your time and energy teaching us and showing us new ways to look at our world. I look forward to more classes!
Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ: Will I get as much out of a teleclass as an in-person training?
After 18 years of teaching in-person, I wondered the same thing myself, and what I found was that students can actually get more out of the teleclass since I can deliver information and guidance each week and the students get to contemplate and practice rather than having to take in everything all at once. In addition they also have the recordings for reference any time.
FAQ: I missed the first class, can I still register? What if I can’t be on the call live for one class date?
Each live class is recorded, and all students receive a link to the recording within 24 hours afterward. If you were unable to register in time to attend the first class you can very easily catch up before we start week 2. Registration will close the day before the second class.
FAQ: How do I attend the calls and receive handouts?
When you register you will receive an email with instructions on how to attend the first call by phone or internet. Each week thereafter I send out an email with instructions for class the night before. After each call I will send an email with a link to the recording for reference or for those who were unable to attend live. Any handouts that apply will also be sent via email as pdf files.
FAQ: I’ve never taken any shamanic training before, is this class for me? I’m already a shamanic practitioner, can I attend?
This class is intended for anyone who has not previously taken shamanic training or shamanic practitioners who would like a different perspective.
Got more questions? We’re happy to answer them, send us an email.
