“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 and Animism, honoring 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. Not only love, honor, and respect for Creator and Mother Earth but also every living thing. It is about being in touch with oneself and everything around you. It is about 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 honor Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow by carrying his teachings and wisdoms forward in our practices, ceremonies, and teachings. For decades, Joseph has shared his Mystical and Visionary view of spirituality with people around the world. His approach to ceremony and healing is from a Native American perspective. Joseph teaches from his visions and insights, but does not share the sacred practices held only for his Tribes. In this way, we are introduced to a new vision of spiritual connection that is accessible to all who seek it.
