Sandra Ingerman’s book Medicine for the Earth introduced readers to powerful practices that can allow us to generate profound and measurable healing for our environment.

With Medicine for the Earth: Gathering and Healing with Spiritual Light, Sandra invites you to a five day training intensive on learning to transform personal and environmental pollution by transmuting negative beliefs, attitudes, and emotional energy.

This training will investigate how you can work in cooperation with helping spirits and the spirits of the land—as well as getting in touch with your own internal divine nature—to create healing and positive change.

With spiritual practices and learning how to shift our consciousness, we can add to all the brilliant environmental work going on today. But we must learn the power of integrating spiritual work into our daily lives. This is the major theme of this training.


Learning to work in cooperation with all the elements—earth, water, air, fire

Building the foundation for your ongoing practice of transforming and transmuting environmental and personal toxins

Bringing shamanic methods into modern medicine

Ceremonies to transmute water and other substances, as well as to transmute planetary problems

Explore Research–Based Tools for Healing

In 2004, Sandra was invited by The School of Integrative Medicine at the University of Michigan to participate in a pilot research study to study the effects of the Medicine for the Earth work on people who suffered depression after having a heart attack. The study used a variety of standard physical and mental benchmarks to track the success of the program.

The conclusion of the published research study showed that a spiritual retreat such as Medicine for the Earth could be used to increase hope while reducing depression in persons with acute coronary depression.

In this training, you will learn what Sandra taught to her group in Michigan, as well as how to teach the work to others.

Because the etiology of illness today is different from ancient times, our healing methods must be updated to deal with modern day illnesses such as cancer and immune deficiency—problems that are often caused or worsened by environmental pollution.

Sandra will teach new methods of healing based on
the Medicine for the Earth work that can be integrated into
a shamanic healing practice.

The ceremonial work done in collaboration with
community and the spirits is truly
a life-transforming experience.

A Personal Note
from Sandra Ingerman

Sandra Ingerman Photo

After teaching for 35 years, I do not know how many more times I will be teaching this workshop as a live training. While I have no plans to retire, I would love these teachings to be available for future generations to be able to work with this powerful and transformative material. To make this possible, Medicine for the Earth will be filmed by Sounds True as the basis for a future product. I hope you’ll join me to record this training so we may continue to pass along these essential teachings for healing our planet.

This event is over.
