The name "Bird Mountain" is short for Thunderbird Mountain. This powerful healing place maintains the spirits of the thunderbirds. It retains Algonquin medicine ways and honours the spirits of the Old Ones - our ancestors - who have inhabited this landscape since time immemorial. Teachings from the Old Ones have revealed this mountaintop is an ancient, sacred vision quest place called a thunderbird nest. Upon your journey I explain what this means and I share why this site is so important.
As an Algonquin-Métis thunderbird (traditional bird shaman), knowledge keeper, teacher and storyteller my healing journeys are highly medicinal. You will learn about traditional medicine ways, knowledge, legends, teachings and stories. You will have a unique chance to learn about the thunderbirds connected to the ancient human healing practice of the personal vision quest. I bring people up to Bird Mountain to help them reconnect with the Spirits of Nature. I also guide Medicine Walks to help people learn about healing ways connected to the earth and the sky and everything sacred in between. Long ago our ancestors taught us that human well-being is attained by living in intentional harmony with Mother Earth and all the spirits of the land; the elements, trees, plants, animals, birds, ancestors and all the great things encompassed by the four directions. We're all Native to the Earth.
Bird Mountain Journeys bring you to see and experience a beautiful healing place in Eastern Ontario's Highlands. In addition to providing guided wilderness hikes, medicine walks and vision quests in the spring, summer and autumn, in the wintertime I also bring people out to explore the land on snowshoes.
Bird Mountain Journeys are healthy, light-hearted and highly enjoyable! I guide individuals, couples and groups. Short sections of the trail can be steep but my journeys are not strenuous whatsoever. It's best to have an average level of health and fitness in order to participate. We go at a relaxed pace so everyone will experience the spirit and gifts of this beautiful land.
