An invitation from the directors of the Sanctuary at Sedona
We want to invite you all to participate in a very powerful week-long intensive retreat at The Sanctuary, June 3-9th. We have been hosting a series of Shamanic Breathwork retreats facilitated by Linda Star Wolf and Brad Collins of Venus Rising Institute. Each intensive has focused on a different area of deep healing and personal transformation through powerful teachings and the Shamanic Breathwork™ process.
The June 3-9th workshop will focus on Family of Origin material and The Shadow from a Shamanic perspective. Although this week is part of a series, it also stands alone and you are welcome to attend just this week. Family of Origin and Shadow work are at the heart of the Venus Rising Transformation Process. We are absolute advocates of the Shamanic Breathwork™ process and really encourage all of you to give yourself the gift of this profound and sustainable healing. The time is now to turn and face that which stalks us and keeps us from fully stepping in and embracing love, joy, passion and most importantly, our destiny. Click HERE for more information!
The extra benefit of participation in any of Venus Rising's workshops around the country is that you can earn credit towards certification as a Shamanic Breathwork™ facilitator, ordainment as a Shamanic Minister or a degree with Venus Rising University.
Please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested and feel free to call us with any questions, or contact Brad Collins at his numbers listed below.
Love to all of you-
Dean Taraborelli and Kelley Alexander

Star Wolf's Welcome
My journey in life has been a spiral path of wholeness that continues to move through cycles of change taking me through many symbolic death and rebirth experiences, which I refer to as “shamanic portals of transformation.” I have learned more than I ever thought possible through a process I will share with you in my future writings, called the Shamanic Breathwork™ process, and the five initiations process called S.H.I.P. Once I have made sense of the lessons on my path and discovered the bigger picture, I am ready to pass on and share both my stumblings and my leaps along the way. In my own spiritual quest, I have always appreciated most those who shared their struggles and victories in an authentic way. That will be my humble attempt within the context of this blog.
I believe that we are all indigenous to this earth. I respect all my relations, whether they be human, animal, plant, mineral, visible or invisible ones. We are all related by the great web of life and sent here from the great beyond. Everything we say and do touches all parts of this magnificent web of creation. If I treat myself or anyone else unfairly, we are all affected in some way. Fortunately, the converse is true, as well. I am not perfect. If I am honest and have humility, I can admit that I will make mistakes as I seek to further evolve my conscious awareness. I can also make living amends by striving to change my negative thoughts and behaviors, and live from a more open-hearted connection to others and to myself. I have learned over time that all the changes I seek in the outer world must begin by looking within myself first. I have also learned that it is imperative that I have the courage to be honest with myself and to look at the “shadow” side of my personality. When I have had the courage to truly know myself better, the light and the dark, I have found the inner strength to change my life and shape-shift myself into the light of my true soul’s image.
From time to time I will share different programs and events that are being offered through my non profit organization (Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts) in my blog, as well as photos, videos and teachings, etc. But the main purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet to share the inner musings of my shamanic spirit and journey, and to hear yours as well. I look forward to connecting with all of you who intuitively know that you, too, are a valuable part of the shamanic process of conscious co-creation and evolution on the planet at this time. We each have a role to play and a soul purpose in the drama unfolding in our world today. Together we can create a better place for all beings on earth to live and leave a powerful legacy for those who are yet to come.
I believe we will all be remembered by future generations for the choices we make during this time of huge evolutionary change. In the words of the wonderful poem, “Summer Day,” by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
In Love, In Service, In Gratitude,
