Our Vision


There comes a point in our lives where the teacher becomes the student in order to continue being the teacher.

Being the teacher provides the opportunity to take knowledge & wisdom into unexplored areas that only the student can open the door to.

Therefore, without the student, the teacher cannot continue to grow.

That’s why we do what we do!

Our Approach



Our work is founded in ancient Shamanic Teachings & Ceremonies.

Our approach is to see others for who they really are, their Medicine & reflect it back to them so they may discover it for themselves.

The term Medicine is borrowed from the Native American concept referring to the essence of, the shining, wholeness and potential …

We are committed to stay within honesty, vulnerability & integrity as we help others to fearlessly face the changes they need to make in order to accept their own beauty & authenticity.

Our Mission



We are catalysts for change.

For many people, the reality they are experiencing is dissatisfying & dissonant from the life they desire to be living.

To come into resonance, change has to happen.

We provide a space, the tools & the opportunity to negotiate these changes in the most effective & healing way possible.

A Few of Our Programs

Sacred Journeys The Art of Living Clean
Sacred Journeys The Art of Realtionships


To have a safe place to feel human & to grow & learn in an environment which is full of integrity is just what Laurel & Lou provide, & then over deliver! Love this sh*t – keep talking your walk…


Freelance Director / Cinematographer
This experience has taught me about forgiveness & self-love. Sacred Journeys has helped me open a portal into realising who I really am.


Like the magnificent Owl represents, during this profound & amazing 10-day journey I have died & been reborn again. Reborn as a more present SELF! Working with all my spheres to eventually take me back to the ‘Sacred Human’, living in the right now with full AWARENESS



The Living Clean Program has been a bumpy ride…

At times I felt annoyed & frustrated, a little caterpillar squirming his way up from a mountain of shit & at other times I felt like a burning phoenix, soaring above it. At the end, what I have really taken from my 10-day experience at Sacred Journeys is that just as I have the power to create dysfunction in my life, I am the only one capable of eradicating it. Thank you for showing me what I was no longer capable of seeing for myself

Being within the safety & sanctuary of Sacred Journeys with Laurel & Lou creates the safest & most loving environment to reveal parts of myself I’ve been so afraid to reveal & heal.

Each time I come to Sacred Journeys, I am re-energised, my eyes & ears are opened & my mind is filled with more knowledge that both quenches my thirst but also ignites my desire for more. Thank you for giving me insights & practical tools to use in my life.


Another brilliant weekend filled with exactly what I needed to make shifts in my life. A weekend of realness, love, support & understanding. I am very happy to have Sacred Journeys as part of my life.

Silver Light Weaver

Thank you for everything you did for me. When I came to you I was a complete mess and did not know what to do to get my life back on track. Thanks to your help and understanding through my Healing, I now have a life and my health has improved so much. I’m not afraid of taking on the responsibility for my doings as I have more faith in myself than ever before. I can honestly refer other people to go for this treatment as they will benefit like I did


Lou & Laurel provided a supportive, clear space for my process to be what it needed to be, without judgement or impingement.

Hi Lou and Laurel! I have now had three consecutive PSA serum levels done at three month intervals, all at barely detectable levels and no sign of an upward drift. The spiritual healing, I accomplished with your guidance is holding true and I am much better able to relate successfully to the challenges that invariably come my way. I appreciate deeply what I came to SEE through your help. My view of the world and life are so different than before we met that at first it threw me off a bit but now I am seeing more clearly that some of my past views were not concordant with the changes I had made. Again, THANK YOU!

John Blake

A home away from home where I am accepted just the way I am without judgement, giving me the opportunity to grow, expand and find myself collectively and individually within a safe environment connecting with myself, others and nature.


The love, understanding, non-judgement, gentleness and willingness to serve and assist me in such a personal, thoughtful and meaningful way was very special. The patience and compassion of the whole experience was amazing. I know now my healing has resumed and there is help nearby if I need it.

Infinite Earth Womb

Lou & Laurel you are both highlights for me, I love your insights and wisdom – Thank you for your integrity. I come to your retreat with my usual wit and humour, rigid in my fears and beliefs… and again your gentle coaxing brings me momentous insight that quite literally changes my life.

Respect the process and allow for the truth to be revealed as it should. I love it the way it is.

There is something so Sacred about witnessing when the facilitators share their vulnerabilities, they go on every experience with you, they honour the Great Spirit and recognize that there is always work to be done. It is intriguing to listen to Laurel and Lou speak, their teachings are intertwined, they bring their experiences together through the medicine wheels, their teachers are Father Sky, Grandmother Earth, the animals… Laurel and Lou are guides and voices for the Great Spirit. Their purpose is to help you step into your power, they are caretakers of the earth and are here to help us remember who we are.

Life Coach
What on earth is a sweat lodge? Well, this experience has created a divine shift in me. Laurel talked us through the entire cleansing process and guided us to allow a beautiful space of release and openness to the Divine. What an experience! The sense of peace is amazing and indeed an experience for all! Every single person had let something go and every single person had evolved into a deeper level of themselves! I had never seen such transformation before. For me, this is now a monthly appointment in my diary! Thank you Laurel Weaving Willow!
