Unfurling Your Wings

"Unfurl Your Wings" in the East Direction offers a transformative journey. It emphasizes the power of voice, storytelling, and ritual writing as tools for personal development and manifestation. This direction explores the significance of sacred action, initiation, and creativity in shaping one’s path. Discover how to embrace your inner voice, awaken your spirit through symbolic journeys, and craft your soul with expressive arts.

The Power of Your Truth - Unlock the Throat Chakra

In this realm of dawn, we plant seeds—the dreams that stir in the fertile soil of your heart. The throat chakra, like a lotus, awakens. It craves expression, truth, and resonance. So, let your voice be a river, carving canyons through doubt. Speak your dreams into existence; they are the constellations of your becoming.

The Art of Storytelling

Listen. The ancestors gather around the fire. Their eyes hold galaxies, and their voices weave tapestries of memory. You, too, are a bard—an alchemist of words. Craft your narrative: myth, memoir, and magic. Share your stories, for they ripple through time, stitching the fabric of our shared humanity.

Ritual Writing & Manifestation

Take up your quill. Ink becomes incantation. Write your desires into existence. Sacred scripts on parchment, whispered affirmations under moonlight—these are your spells. The mundane becomes extraordinary; the mundane becomes sacred. Your words ripple across dimensions, touching the unseen.

Sacred Action & Embodiment

Your body is a temple, a vessel for transformation. Move with intention. Each step, a prayer. Each gesture, a rune etched in the air. Dance, sway, embody your dreams. Confidence blooms when you honor the sacredness of your vessel. You are both dancer and dance.

The Rite of Awakening

Initiation awaits. Vision quests, dream-laden nights, and symbolic journeys. The old self sheds like a serpent’s skin. You emerge—anointed, reborn. The threshold is a mirror; step through, and meet your true reflection. The fire within burns brighter; you are the phoenix rising.

Divine Sparks of Inspiration

Creativity dances in your veins. The muse whispers secrets: melodies, brushstrokes, code, poetry. Tap into the universal flow. Be the vessel, the conduit. Your sparks illuminate the dark corners of existence. Celebrate your uniqueness; you are stardust and wonder.

How is this course different than all the others?

The Way of the Warrior offers a unique, comprehensive, and deeply immersive approach that sets it apart from other courses in the realm of Shamanism and empowerment. 


Here's why:

Holistic Curriculum: Our course is not just a series of lessons, it's a transformative journey. By integrating eight different genres of interaction, we offer a wide spectrum of teachings to connect with various learning styles and preferences, creating a richer and more nuanced understanding of Shamanic practices and spiritual empowerment.


Engaging Beyond the Screen: While it is a virtual course, the Way of the Warrior is far from a static online experience. Many of our exercises, rituals, and crafting activities are designed to be performed in various environments - from the heart of nature to bustling urban cities, or even at your dining room table with your family. We encourage our students to step away from their computers and engage with their surroundings, bringing a hands-on, experiential element to the learning journey.


Balanced Learning: We focus on not just imparting knowledge, but also on fostering self-discovery, personal transformation, and spiritual growth. The balance of theory, practical exercises, and community interaction ensures a well-rounded learning experience.


Community-Centric Approach: The Sacred Wheel is not a solitary journey. Our Council Gatherings and virtual community spaces, such as Avalon, facilitate deep connections with like-minded individuals, providing a nurturing environment for shared learning and growth.


Personalized Path: We understand everyone's spiritual journey is unique. That's why we give students the flexibility to engage with the course material in a way that best aligns with their personal interests, goals, and time constraints.


Empowerment through Creation: Unlike many other courses, our students actively create sacred tools and engage in hands-on spiritual craftwork, thus embodying the transformative power of creation in their own spiritual journey.


Nature Connection: Our curriculum deeply entwines with nature, fostering a profound connection to the Earth's rhythms and cycles, something often overlooked in other courses.


Lifetime Access to Resources: All our downloadable content is yours to keep forever, providing a lasting treasure trove of wisdom and guidance even after the course is completed.


When are the Council Gatherings held?

Council Gatherings are held at 1 PM and 4 PM EST on every other Sunday (some modifications are made due to holidays). Each gathering lasts approximately two hours. You can join one or both. If you're unable to join us live, don't worry! Each call is recorded, and replays are made available within the same week.

What if I can't make the live Council Gatherings?

No problem! We provide replays for all Council Gatherings, with the exception of Emotional Integration sessions, Soul Recoveries, or Shamanic Breathwork sessions.

What if I start and can't finish, what is your refund policy?

Is there a community aspect to the course?

Absolutely! Our tribe, composed of individuals from all around the globe, creates a vibrant tapestry of community. The community that we've built and nurtured over the years is truly unique and can be considered the 8th wonder of the world.

What makes your Soul Crafting pillar different than just watching a YouTube video to learn how to make a rattle, or a drum, or other sacred tool?

Crafting sacred tools in our Masterclass goes beyond the act of merely creating a tool; it's an immersive, spiritual journey infused with intention, mindfulness, and deep personal connection. When crafting, say, a rattle, you aren't just assembling materials. Instead, you're mindfully creating an extension of yourself – a tool that serves your unique purpose and resonates with your energy.


Our approach under the guidance of Dakota is unlike any other. As a master of infusing profound meaning and symbolism into the crafting process, she encourages students to go beyond the mechanics. She pushes you to engage fully with the energy being created, fostering a relationship between you and your crafted tool. In this way, your tool becomes not just a static object, but a co-pilot in your spiritual journey.


Every step of the crafting process is taken within a sacred space, with each ritual bringing the steps together. The end result is a sacred tool that will not only last a lifetime but also become an integral part of your spiritual family. This profound, personal approach to Soul Crafting is what sets our Masterclass apart from simply following a YouTube tutorial.

How much interaction is there with the instructor?

Dakota is deeply involved with her students. Our Council Gatherings are small, intimate groups to preserve the sacred space. Dakota also engages in the conversations in Avalon as time allows. With the Way of the Warrior, you will also work with Dakota 1:1 on your personal journey.

How long do I have access to the course material?

You'll have indefinite access to all downloadable content, provided you've downloaded it during the course. Council Gathering replays are available only during the semester they are recorded in. Access to each semester's material continues until the end of your enrollment. If you join for the annual trek around the Wheel, you'll remain enrolled for one month beyond the 12.

Do you have payment plans?

Currently, we do not offer payment plans. However, you may choose to pay for the course using a credit card and manage it as a monthly installment payment plan. Or you can choose to finance the course using the option for Afterpay upon checkout.

Are there any specific materials or tools I will need for this course?

The Soul Crafting Interactive classes will often require you to purchase additional crafty type items. The course packets will also include recipes for various things such as making incense, elixirs, potions, etc. and if you choose to make those, they too will incur an additional supply cost. Costs can vary, from minimal for some activities to higher for projects like making a shamanic drum or rattle. We also recommend purchasing a new journal to document your journey.

What are the technological requirements for this course?

To participate fully in the course, you'll need a computer or tablet with internet access and the ability to join live calls. The live calls require a webcam and a microphone. For the meditations, we recommend using headphones for the best experience.
