Step out of ordinary time, into timeless ceremonies in healing waters.
Step into your becoming.
"Changing Woman . . . brought her People to their promised land, their sacred Center Place, the arid plateau between four sacred mountains. She gave the People an arsenal of curing ceremonies to return them to harmony when they felt out of balance or were in need of healing . . . effective only if performed within the mythic corner posts enclosing an area of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah."
--from "Faces of the Native Spirit" by Tony Hillerman

"The Sojourn was special to me primarily because it was a sacred journey which took me out of contemporary times and events, put me in touch with my heart, and allowed my intuition to flourish." --Denise, 1999
"It took me from quiet despair to knowing who I truly am--Beauty, Beauty, Beauty. It was as fearsome and awesome and real as it gets. If it calls to you, just go!" --Edie, 2009
“The beauty of this spiritual adventure for me is that even years after, the experience continues to provide access to deep healing and remembering my true purpose.” --Perry F.
Oh Shinnah Fast Wolf, internationally acclaimed teacher and Warrior Woman, was 11 years old when she was first taken into these ancient ceremonies in the healing waters of Changing Woman. She and her father and a small band of family members were in mourning and seeking healing after the untimely death of Oh Shinnah's mother. Back then, they rode to these sacred ceremonial sites on horseback. These days, we follow in their footsteps but travel by car.
Oh Shinnah believes that all the children of Mother Earth, regardless of the color of their skin, the language they speak, or the divinity/god/goddess they pray to are in need of the vibration of Changing Woman in order to thrive, not just survive, during these times of prophetic Earth changes. Knowing the powerful healing potential of this sacred sojourn from her own experience, she beseeched her elders and teachers for fifteen years before receiving permission to share these ancestral ceremonies with the world.
Shortly thereafter, in 1997, Oh Shinnah had a prophetic dream. She was told to train Deep Arrow Woman and Bright Owl to conduct the purification ceremonies of this healing and spiritual initiation -- to assure that its powers to help and to heal would remain available to those who were called into the sacred, recuperative waters in the land of Changing Woman. Both these women humbly undertook the extensive training required with Oh Shinnah, which lasted for many years -- until Deep Arrow Woman was entrusted to lead the Sojourn and the ceremonies with the support of Bright Owl.
Deep Arrow Woman dedicated herself to preserving these life-altering ceremonies that are so unique in our modern world. She now trains others to receive the privilege and hold the responsibilities as ceremonial leaders of this Sacred Sojourn and to safeguard the promise she made to Oh Shinnah all those years ago -- to keep alive these ancestral practices of purification and initiation in our modern world.
Join us in the healing waters. Step out of time -- and into becoming who you truly are.
