Mission Statement

Sacred Earth Network offers medicine to the widespread inertia and numbness that marks with increasing frequency humanity's interpersonal and environmental relationships. SEN's programs enable both seasoned activists, as well as those just beginning to realize our interdependency, to practice ways of re-connecting and plugging in with renewed vigor. Many participants experience a profound feeling for what is truly "indigenous" - a deep connection to land and community.

Program 1

We currently offer three programs: (1). Workshops. Based in deep ecology and the wisdom of indigenous cultures, our experiential workshops include processes that allow participants to spend time connecting with the land and with one another in unique and powerful ways; (2). Expeditions. In a spirit of joy and reverence we meet with indigenous peoples on their territory, open to what they and the land are saying. As we travel together, we form a small community, sharing insights regularly, but also giving everyone a chance to rest, enjoy, contemplate, and just be. (3). Indigenous Peoples Exchanges. Building on its environmental track record in Russia SEN began coordinating indigenous exchanges between Native Siberians and Native Americans in 2001. Elders, shamans, and leaders from both sides are encouraged to share their traditions with another and in the process find mutual solidarity and support, not only among themselves but from the larger community of Natives and Non-Natives they come into contact with.

He has 20 years of experience in re-evaluation counseling and Vipassana meditation, and has undergone extensive training with Siberian shamans as well as with Joanna Macy and John Perkins. He has also spent much time in the US Southwest learning about Native medicine ways and the crucial importance of the petroglyphs and pictographs. Bill brings to all his work a dynamic mixture of open heartedness, sensitivity, and a fierce determination for a peaceful, sustainable future.
