Tim Yearington Teachings of the Thunderbird Nest

Spiritual Learning With A Shaman

        Guided Earthwalks On The Land

"To enjoy your own land, look back upon it from another. If you only have trees to view, you have many possessions."

-- Kitchizibi Algonquin Proverb --

On my guided "Earthwalks" you will learn spiritual teachings the land has taught us since the melting of the last Ice Age, or as we say,"Since time immemorial."  That's 12,000 years ago!

Earthwalks travel out on the land to the thunderbird nest sites in the wilderness. On these Earthwalks you will learn about the spiritual nature of the thunderbird nest and what it's purpose is. 

The guided Earthwalks I provide are unique, experiential, land-based learning opportunities rooted in the traditional spiritual teachings of Algonquin Territory. My Earthwalks take you to see various sacred sites, places of power and places of vision in the Madawaska Highlands region of Ontario, Canada. Many of the locations we visit have forest trails that I scouted out, designed and actually made with my own hands years ago. The reason I did this work was simple: "We need to learn from the Earth."   

I provide personal (one-on-one) guided Earthwalks and group Earthwalks. My fees are determined by the nature of the walk and the number of people participating. Earthwalks go into the wilderness all seasons of the year. Contact me for fees. 

In winter, my guided walks become exhilarating snowshoeing journeys. I provide the snowshoes! While bringing you to visit wild places in the forest you might not ever have a chance to see, I'll tell you the tales, stories and legends of my ancestors.   

In addition I offer guided vision quests and also vision quest training to help you prepare. For this I require a modest "pay as you go" amount for my vision quest training. You are welcome to stop training at any point. The training I offer requires a fair commitment of your time. This is necessary so that we will be able to cover critical content and teachings in greater depth so your vision quest will be successful. Most training is only done out on the land. But some teachings are done indoors or inside my thunderbird lodge at my home. (That is if you live nearby.)

Bird Mountain in Ontario's Highlands is where we go on the completion of your training. Visiting this wilderness area to do your vision quest is a fantastic way to gain spiritual guidance in addition to real, practical insights to apply to your own world. The knowledge you gain will be used to assist your life journey of inner healing, personal growth, change and transformation. 

If you are interested in my vision quest training and would like more information about the cost please contact me.
