“We are connected to nature. We are part of creation just as any animal or plant or river or tree. Yet we are the only ones who spend our lives trying to disconnect. Remember where you come from and let yourself feel the wildness and the beauty of creation.” Robbie Warren, Otter Woman Standing

Otter Dance is dedicated to the Spiritual Path of Earth Medicine, Animism, and relational connection with all of creation. We honor the Spirit in all things.
EVERYTHING is sacred from the largest mountain to the smallest plant and animal. A lesson can be found in all things and experiences and everything has a purpose. To sum up Earth Medicine; it is about HONOR, LOVE, and RESPECT. It is being in touch with oneself and everything around you. It is knowing and understanding that you are part of everything, and everything is a part of you. Our Elders hold the answers, and our children hold the future. We are all One.
We believe in supported autonomy. These tools, practices, and principles will empower you to be fully engaged in your own life, to deepen your connection to your divine path. Modern animism and shamanism reconnect us to our ancestral lineages with the resources for the integration of your individual experiences.
Our purpose is to support you on your own path with these resources and opportunities for the Modern Animist. Whether you are just beginning your exploration or you are a seasoned practitioner of animistic and shamanistic practices, we support your personal growth and connection.
Robbie guides her students on an exploration of ancient teachings, wisdom, and ceremonies that prove to be relevant today. Students are empowered to open their hearts and embrace their own truth and discover their calling to serve themselves and others.

Otter Dance Starter Kit
Our starter kit is designed for any of you who are just beginning your exploration of animism and shamanism and looking for a place to start.
Within the starter kit, you will get to know Brandy and Robbie and what brought them into shamanism. You’ll also find helpful information to get you thinking about how these practices and principles may fit into your own life. This is also a great place simply to get started in understanding and it gives you a jumping off point to be able to dive deeper into these principles and practices. We look forward to getting to know you as you spend time getting to know us here at Otter Dance.
