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 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 Upcoming Gatherings

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[/lvca_testimonial_slide][lvca_testimonial_slide author=”Haidy” credentials=”Creative Director” author_image=”567″]With enormous gratitude I thank you for sharing your wisdom & teachings Lou & Laurel, your passion for these journeys have life changing shifts & your open hearts that allowed me the safe space to start to feel again.

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![/lvca_testimonial_slide][lvca_testimonial_slide author=”Ceanlia” credentials=”Teacher” author_image=”554″]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.[/lvca_testimonial_slide][lvca_testimonial_slide author=”Infinite Earth Womb” credentials=”Mother” author_image=”553″]The love, understanding, non-judgement, gentleness and willingness to serve and assist me in such a personal, thoughtful and meaningful way was very special.

[/lvca_testimonial_slide][lvca_testimonial_slide author=”Julie” credentials=”Life Coach” author_image=”547″]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.[/lvca_testimonial_slide][lvca_testimonial_slide author=”Tarryn Lalitha Coetzee” credentials=”Marketing Manager at Body & Mind” author_image=”550″]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![/lvca_testimonial_slide][lvca_testimonial_slide author=”Ryan Golden Lion Speaks Softly ” credentials=”Veterinary Animal Handler” author_image=”778″]

A path brought all the way from the Northwest Power to Southeast Africa by Lou Worldweaver. Through his experience, honesty and humour, Lou teaches and reflects all that I need to learn in each moment – be it at the weekends we come together or through the tools I am given to take into my real life challenges and experiences. Laurel Weaving Willow, through her presence, wisdom and interpretation of the teachings marries them to brings absolute balance. So meticulously packaged, planned and presented. As they work together, they reflect pure, honest communication within relationship to me as yet another tool to strive to experience in my own relationships. These teachings are sacred and they teach my soul to be in intimate relationship with myself. This path is not an easy one, but I choose it because it feels right and I always feel supported through my teachers, Lou & Laurel, in the Community and as an individual, to experience a deeper understanding and harmony with Earth, my home.'[/lvca_testimonial_slide][lvca_testimonial_slide author=”Abi Womb Heart Sings” author_image=”784″]Shares this after a Personal Awareness Retreat, ‘I have come to understand that the greatest moments in our lives that give us our true power back, are in fact the most simple – effortless. All we are required to do is to stand in front of ourselves with neutrality. When I can allow myself the opportunity to be neutral, I can find love for myself. I look back and deeply thank myself for the experience I had at Sacred Journeys. I can deeply thank you, Lou & Laurel for holding a space where I can search for my authentically powerful self. I thank you for your unconditional love and for breathing life into the Circle of the Medicine Wheel and the world.'[/lvca_testimonial_slide][/lvca_testimonials_slider]
