Stories from People who Decided it was Time to Redefine their Journey using Indigenous Teachings and Transform Their Resilience


Here's why our students say, “I’ve spent years trying to learn Indigenous Culture and this is by far the most clear, comprehensive, and actionable”:

Christine White

“I have found so much through Smudge Circle that has made so much of my life finally make sense! I have felt a deeper connection and purpose than I have in a very long time. I look forward to the net step in my journey ❤️”

JoAnne Lanktree

“This provided me with deeper understanding of the sacred medicines, the smudging process, and most importantly, the medicine wheel.”

Ellie Griffen

“The program made me grow as a native woman who had to learn my culture on my own and I gained a deeper understanding of smudging and the medicine wheel.”

I don’t know if I would have learned these lessons, teachings, rituals, and truths about my indigeneity without this course. So a sincere and heartfelt thank you and hats off to you Mallory!

— Barbie Arsenault

Colleen Bruce

I really appreciate that Mallory is sharing the Indigenous Culture with such respect and enthusiasm, as an ally that grew up in a community that was majority Indigenous I loved being included in the culture and learning a love of the land, people, animals, and plants

Mark Lindquist

“A blend of culture and spiritual readiness gave me a lot of heart, something I've been searching for. Personally I feel blessed I've been able to take lessons and teachings and apply it to my life.”

Deborah Derr

I now have a deeper sense of self, a deeper connection to my culture and I have a clearer understanding and pride in who I am.”

Smudge circle was exactly what I needed. It gave some reassurance that I do know more than I thought and that's important because I struggle with not being native enough or enough to teach my kids and others. This helped me have confidence and self esteem knowing I do have some knowledge!
