In 1994, The Lynn Andrews Center for Sacred Arts and Training (Mystery School) was created. This program is a unique mystery school designed to integrate the sacred into every aspect of life. The curriculum offers a four-year professional certification program, and bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees are available. The Center offers CEUs to nurses, medical practitioners, and therapists. Lynn Andrews also has a formal program for ordained ministers.
The Lynn Andrews Center for Sacred Arts and Training has a nonprofit organization called “Circle of Life” dedicated to the recording of legacies for elders.
The work of Lynn Andrews explores the ancient teachings taught by the Sisterhood of the Shields, which embrace the study of global shamanic cosmologies and sacred art technologies. It is her intention that through this work we understand how all that is sacred in life weaves together within our world. Throughout time, shamans have practiced the art of choreographing energy in a nonlinear field. Shamanic knowledge and practice is at the very heart of creation. As 21st century shamans, they learn to create a sacred circle in which they transform an ordinary life into a life of power.
Andrews’ newest work, Tree of Dreams, is now available (in its 3rd printing). Her ability to teach people and show them how to live a life that is truly balanced, with one foot in the physical and one in the spiritual, is the foundation of this amazing new work.
• You must never run from fear. You must face it. Fear is a tracker that will hunt you down.
• Shamanism is a subtle and alchemical process to transform and elevate the spirit beyond the constructs of the limits of reality. It is a space program for the soul and launches you out into the uncharted territory of the stars.
• Prayer is our heartsong to life and the great spirit.
• …the Sisterhood is in all of us. It is every woman who is keeping the dream alive. And the oldest dreamkeepers, the Grandmothers, are in danger at this very moment. We must write and we must act to keep the knowledge and the powers of woman alive.
• The person who upsets you the most is your best teacher because they bring you face to face with who you are.
The best place to gain a complete understanding of Lynn Andrews and her message is to attend her annual Joshua Tree four-day retreat in the California desert. Yet the best way to get started with Andrews is to read her book Medicine Woman. In the book, Andrews tells how she was guided to meet her Native American shaman teachers and how she is trained to gather and hold her female power.
Medicine Woman begins with Andrews seeing a photo of a Native American marriage basket in an art gallery during a show. She becomes obsessed with finding out about the basket and ends up meeting a Native American man named Hyemeyohsts Storm. Hyemeyohsts Storm sets her on her path to Canada to acquire this marriage basket.
During this journey, she meets two wise woman—Ruby Plenty Chiefs and Agnes Whistling Elk—and becomes an apprentice to Agnes. The book shares her experiences as a student of this Cree medicine woman in Manitoba, Canada. Through her training with Agnes, Andrews discovers a new aspect of herself, that of warrior and huntress. The message of Medicine Woman is that women can be powerful and strong, and the book provides this message through a very empowering story.
