Dakota has worked in the Shamanic Arts for over 25 years and is a renowned teacher for the Medicine Wheel Teachings based on Celtic, Druidic, and Native American Spirituality.

Dakota’s teachings and meditations have helped to change the lives of many people and is a celebrated and beloved Meditation Coach known globally.
In the nearly 30 years that I have taught personal development and spiritual courses, the Medicine Wheel is by far the most powerful tool I have ever worked with.
When I began building Gaia Wisdom School, I had a very strong intention of helping people to find their power, to rise into their full potential and to offer folks tools they can use every single day and in every single moment – to inspire folks to become and embody their sacred purpose, not just give it lip service or to constantly be struggling to obtain it.
In my working life, I hold many titles and certificates – Shamanic Minister, Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator, Master Ritualist, Trance Dance Facilitator, Spiritual Teacher and Mom to a trio of beautiful 4 legged teachers. I wear many hats ranging from nomadic Shaman, Horse whisperer, business owner and entrepreneur, avid kayaker and adventure seeker, and tech queen.
I’ve trained with remarkable teachers including one of the last living Hopi Medicine Men, Shamans in Ireland, and Arizona. I’ve studied exclusively with Dr. Ted Baroody, the founder of Holographic Health. I’ve studied with the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids based out of Wales. But the greatest teacher I’ve ever found are the students who come with a deep desire to face the wounds, blast through the fear, walk through the fires, stand firmly as they embark on living the best life possible and to live deeply and suck the marrow out of life. I am constantly inspired and humbled.
I feel fortunate to be here today, to be living this life, to be with these brave students of life, and to be witness to so many incredible hero’s journeys.
I could tell you more, talking about myself is NOT one of my strong suits. So if you want more, click here.

Betty Roberts has long felt the call of deep spirituality and communion with nature. She was raised in the Bible Belt of the southern United States and was taught as a child that all spirituality must come from one religion. She tried, for many, many years, she tried. She was given the titles of Deaconess, Worship Team Member and even Elder, but the labels never quite fit right. Life events gave Betty the opportunity to shed those labels and discover who she really is. She discovered that first, shedding those labels isn’t as easy as one might think, and second, she had no idea how to find her true self.
Lee-Ann joined the Mentorship 2 years ago as a student and last year joined the “behind the scenes” team to assist with tech issues, quality control, and too many other things to list here. She has been nicknamed “Eagle Eye” for her ability to catch anything that needs fixing! Lee-Ann wasn’t always in the tech/QA field. She has also sold popcorn at the movies, been a chambermaid, call center rep which ultimately led to her path into the tech field. She also started a Holiday Gift Giving project for a local homeless shelter, she has always had a big heart for small kids.
Sherrie and Dakota met in 2016 at a business conference in Los Angeles. The connection was instant and the creative energy was immediately overflowing. Sherrie joined Team Gaia shortly after and assists with all business aspects of growing Gaia Wisdom School. Her passion is getting Dakota’s message out to as many soul travelers as possible. She helped implement the Coffee With Dakota series and the Shaman Short series – who knows what will pop up next? One thing is certain…nothing is ever stagnant so stay tuned! Sherrie also joined the Mentorship Program and has been traveling the Wheel for 2 years now. Feel free to private message her if you have any questions about the program or just want to talk.
