Great Places To Start

Our Soulcraft Intensive, Wild Mind Intensive, and Nature and the Human Soul, while some of our most profound experiential immersions, are also the most popular “entry points” for those with no prior experience with Soulcraft™ practices or the work of Animas Valley Institute. Animas Quests are also a great place to dive into the journey of soul initiation, requiring only a calling and longing for a ceremonial descent to soul. Explore our Animas Quest offerings


Our Advanced programs are designed for those with a desire to work more deeply with specific Soulcraft practices such as dreamwork, talking across the species boundaries, shadow work, deep imagery and council & mirroring. Those who have completed an Animas Quest or vision fast with another organization may also be called to our advanced immersions to deepen their dive to soul. Educators, health professionals, psychotherapists, and wilderness guides are often drawn to these offerings as well. An application is required for our advanced programs.

Special Focus

Our Special Focus programs employ a variety of unique and distinctive Soulcraft practices for evoking encounter with soul. Designed and crafted by Animas guides, these creative offerings tend to attract those called to the awakening of planetary imagination, writing as a path to soul and the exploration of other initiatory realms and arenas for soul immersion.
