Laurie was raised among mountains and rivers of Idaho and lives with a felt sense of the sacred threads that weave through this wild world. She longs to hear the thrum of soul’s truth and guides humans on the journey home to intimacy with the world’s sovereign aliveness, and their own, in this cosmic web. She is part of the Animas Valley Institute Soul Initiation and Apprenticeship program.
Laurie has a passion for nature based, soul-connected ancestral work and intergenerational ceremony and journeys in which humans of many ages find themselves longing for and risking stepping through thresholds of becoming. Once an ordained clergy and hospice chaplain, she is steeped in Joanna Macy’s The Work that Reconnects, Permaculture, and Bill Plotkin’s Soulcraft work, among other embodied, earth based wisdom practices. http://www.sacredsoulwaters.net/
