The Shamanic Arts
Shamanism is the oldest, most creative and yummy spiritual practice known to mankind, dating back tens of thousands of years and practiced on every continent. You could say that shamanism is literally in our DNA as somewhere within our ancestral lineage we all had a shaman or two.
Within Shamanism everything that exists is alive and imbued with spirit. Through tried and true spiritual practices we explore and celebrate our spiritual interconnectedness to each other, to our spiritual allies and to mother earth. One of the most beautiful aspects of shamanism is the principle of direct revelation – accessing the unseen worlds of spirit to gain wisdom and healing for ourselves and community.
Just as in the seen world we have family and friends, so in the unseen realm, we have spirit kith and kin who can help guide us through life. These spiritual allies are all-knowing, benevolent beings who want nothing more than to commune with us. Shamanism helps us tune into the wisdom of these magnificent beings. It offers us a more soul-full way of being in the world and interacting with all of life.
As humanity is poised…
at cliff’s edge ready to take a quantum leap in consciousness, we need to once again communicate with “all our relations” as the Lakota would say. Communing with the plant and animal people, with the rocks, water and soil for they are our family too. And within nature lies the key to our own nature and to the survival of our species and many generations to come.
Michele Wagner is a Shamanic Practitioner who serves as a catalyst for the transformation and regeneration of living systems, most especially the human soul.
Michele’s intent is to help you create a passion and purpose-filled life, so that you can do the work you came here to do in service to humanity and the earth. To that end, she helps women and men transcend limiting patterns, tune into their inherent power and re-envision themselves as fully ensouled divine beings.
As Chief Pollinator and Daughter of the Hive, Michele weaves a trifecta of skills as a systems thinker, shamanic practitioner and nurturer of the creative force. For the past 7 years, she has trained in the Path of Pollen, an ancient lineage taught by the Sacred Trust in England. Her shamanic training encompasses both classical and ancient bee shamanism. Her quest for wholeness and holiness has taken her to the Amazon Jungle, Indonesia and the Arctic wilderness, to rekindle the wild within and work with indigenous shamans.
Through ceremony, dreams, meditation and shamanic journeying Michele has worked with the different archetypes of Sophia, Mary Magdalene, and The Black Madonna to find and express the Feminine Face of God. She co-wrote, directed and produced Woman of Light, a rock opera based on the life of Mary Magdalene and the return of the feminine that premiered in both the US (Denver, CO) and Europe (London, UK). Michele also directed and co-produced a full-length feature called This Place of Love
Her shamanic practice is informed by her experience as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, Permaculterist, and Sustainability Consultant working with nonprofits and entrepreneurs to innovate green manufacturing from recycled waste.

Spending the weekend in sacred circle guided by Liz and Michele allowed me to connect with…
“…parts of myself that lay dormant. The work awakened and ignited my inner knowing and illuminated the path forward to self acceptance and inspired action. Being introduced to practices that women have performed before me and will after me gave me a sense of community and support that felt grounded and timeless. I look forward to what unfolds as I assimilate the rituals into my life. With love & appreciation.”
Returning to the Garden Workshop
Returning to the Garden was truly a transformative and joyful experience.
“The practices I learned are simple, yet profound, and I am weaving them slowly into my daily practice. Often now when I feel the need to balance, when I have unanswered questions or big decisions to make, I find myself journeying back down to my womb, my seat of knowledge “my first brain and second heart”. I find trust in my decisions when they come from this place. Instead of always seeking externally frantically for answers, I am finding inner stillness and confidence. I am growing the garden of my own exquisite design and tending the treasures within.”
Returning to the Garden Workshop
Michele and Liz are incredible guides, creating a space that allows you to tap into your deep intuition and power.
“I’ve been Calling in the Spirits and Walking the 8 the past few mornings and I can feel a renewed state of being. The mental chatter and chronic anxiety have subsided and I am more grounded and resourced. My work flows more easily and heartaches are buoyed by hope. I have more energy, clarity and an incredible internal calm. My womb and guiding voice are waking up…remembering! Thank you. I’m full of gratitude.”
