Wisdom Learning Series

Wisdom Learning Series

In this Wisdom Learning series, we acknowledge the rich diversity of traditional indigenous practices, rooted in deep connection with nature and consciousness. In each of these mini-courses, we have the privilege of sitting with elders who share generously from their knowledge, stories and insights. ATMA is committed to equipping and supporting our students to ethically and effectively offer Psychedelic-assisted Therapy as a part of their practice. An important part of this training is acknowledging the deep roots and foundations of the plant medicines and teachings and honoring the generations of elders that are the keepers of this wisdom. 

All proceeds from our Wisdom Learning Series will go directly to the Elders and their Community and to our ATMA Reciprocity Fund. Enjoy this unique experience, expanding your world view and appreciation for how these plant medicines have been impacting humanity for millennia and how you will be enriched by bringing this wisdom into your life and practice.

The Path of the Buffalo - Camille Pablo Russell

In this course you will sit under the teachings of Blackfoot Elder Camille Pablo Russell. You will learn about his roots and traditional practices and his call to teach this to literally thousands of people around the globe. You will learn about the medicine wheel and and principles for life through traditional Blackfoot practices of Vision Quests and Sweat lodges and medicines.
You will also learn the importance for those wanting to offer psychedelic-assisted therapy to do their own personal work before they can be effective practitioners. His challenge is not to necessarily adopt all these traditional practices in a literal manner, but rather explore how the wisdom underlying his teaching can be transformative in the lives and practices of all who choose to listen.

Part 3: Self-Care for the Healer
