The Red Lodge Longhouse Program is a year-long commitment to personal excellence. This program is for students who wish to develop other ways of knowing how to connect with Spirit and how to live in harmony with nature and their fellow humans. The program provides teachings, ceremony, and experiential learning to facilitate having happiness, harmony, health, connection and meaning in your life.
The Institute for Contemporary Shamanic Studies of Alberta is proud to offer a program that provides hope and direction through these changing times. These ancient teachings and earth-based knowledge, taught by qualified teachers from the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path lineage, will show you how to connect with Spirit and create a stronger, more stable life for yourself and those around you.
