Advanced Offerings

Our Advanced offerings are designed for those who are prepared for the encounter with soul and want to work in greater depth with one or two specific soulcraft practices (like dreamwork, talking across the species boundaries, shadow work, deep imagery, or the way of council) or want to take their next step toward soul after an Animas Quest (or a vision fast with another organization). These offerings are also popular with educators, health professionals, psychotherapists, and wilderness guides. An application is often required for our advanced offerings.

Advanced offerings include:

  • Advanced Soulcraft Intensive
  • Coming Home to an Animate World
  • Deep Imagination
  • Soulcentric Dreamwork
  • Soulcraft Journey
  • Sweet Darkness
  • Underworld Journey
  • Yearlong Soulcraft Immersion
