Vanguard Group 

with Otter Dance

Our new world way of delivering experiences that you would usually have to go to a personal development or spiritual retreat to uncover. Our Vanguard Group is a living, breathing, continuous, interactive workshop in Animism and Shamanism, personal and spiritual growth

If you’re feeling to dive deeper into your spiritual practices, it’s time to reconnect and discover a tailored exploration into self-awareness, self-development, and spiritual growth just for you, whenever you need it. Through our private Facebook group, we offer a safe and practical spiritual experience.

Our Vanguard Group features the Teachers, Mentors, and Storytellers that come through Otter Dance to create the experience of personal retreats and workshops.  

We start by acknowledging and respecting your individuality, tuning in to who you are, and the path you’re on, and honoring where it is you want to go.

With nearly 20 years of experience in supporting and teaching thousands of people around the world, we have identified 4 Pillars of support that most people who are seeking to grow need.

Those 4 Pillars are Teachings, Healing, Practices, and Community. Our courses, workshops, and life experiences give you the tools to drive better focus, resilience, and awareness to enhance your performance and ultimately your sacred journey.

1st Pillar: Teachings

We share fundamental teachings from Animism and Shamanism dedicated to educating, informing, and empowering, to create a union of ancient traditions and deep understanding in a way that is carried forward into modern life practice. We create a safe space for exploration and growth while knowing that we are all individuals bringing our own experiences into the world. These teachings will help you open your heart and see the truth of yourself.

2nd Pillar: Practice

Practice is anything from a spiritual practice to the daily rituals that support your well-being. For Practical Shamanism, this can also extend to ceremonial and energy practices, myth and mythology, how we can bring our practices into the forefront of our lives, and more.

3rd Pillar: Healing

Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body’s subtle energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body’s inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated.

4th Pillar: Community

We’ve learned that spiritual discovery and transformation are impactful if it’s linked to Community connection. Grounded in its approach, our Community foundation recognizes we aren’t monks in a monastery. Members can share their own experiences and insights, connect with each other and broaden their understanding through the many expressions of Earth Medicine.


Bi-weekly we will come together for a live gathering focused on supported autonomy and spiritual momentum. These gatherings are designed for all levels of practice. Our weekly gatherings are designed for spiritual growth and connection.

  • Focused Teachings
  • Shamanic Journey Group
  • Community Energy Clearing
  • Sacred Ceremony

Community Connection

You can find other members based on their “specialty” (i.e., where they are on their spiritual path). You can find people based on their physical proximity to you, wherever you happen to be in the world (so if you’re traveling, and another member is nearby, the mobile app will tell you!) You can send private messages to other members for more personal connection.

Access to all Live and Recorded Events

These living conversations will be archived and accessible to you any time you want to revisit the practices and principles. New teachings will be added monthly that connect to the theme we are exploring each month.

Each month we will focus on a specific theme in order to engage, grow, share insights, and connect. We are ever evolving as are our practices, ceremonies, and teachings.  We will take a deeper dive into many concepts, principles, and practices that support our spiritual path.

There is no beginning or ending point, you can step in at any time and be an integral part of the conversation. Whether you are a practitioner, a new seeker on the path, or a teacher, these conversations will support you and your practice.

Our Vanguard Group is an experience of all that embodies Otter Dance Earth Medicine.
