Are you heartbroken by the state of the world, knowing deeply that there’s a more meaningful, harmonious way of living that but uncertain how to get there?

Do you feel anxious, overwhelmed, or unsure of how to be authentic to your deep Self within the confines of the modern industrial pace of living?

Do you tend to feel more at home in the natural world and desire to bring that sense of peace and connection into your daily life?

Amy Terepka energy work portland

You are a sensitive, empathic soul, a healer and giver by nature. You feel there’s a better, more meaningful way of living that’s aligned with the rhythms of the Earth, with the wisdom of your body, and the teachings of the plants. You crave a deeper, more significant way of connecting with both yourself and the world around you. A way that’s perhaps more wild, more raw, more real. A way that moves in consort with forces of nature, not against. A way that’s actually healing for the Earth herself, as well as us.

You want a life that's:

Mondays

4:30 pm

More connected with the sacred pulse of Life

Rooted in ancient wisdom and modern understanding

Intertwined with and informed by the cycles of nature

Healing for the Earth and our connection with the unseen world

Inspired by the wisdom of the plants and the natural world

Propelled by the wild call within your soul

In balance with your heart and body’s way of being

More mindful and animate in the present moment

In alignment with your unique, individual creative fire

Respectful to the land and our more-than-human kin

Empowered and embodied in your own wise medicine for the world

You can feel it, hovering just on the other side of a veil. Waiting.

 

But how do you reach it? Where do you find your path?

And how do you traverse this path of the wild while also living in a modern society?

How do you return to the rhythm of your soul as you navigate the disjointed paradigms and pace of the external world?

"Being part of the GSWS felt like having a safe, cozy nest built around me. I was not expecting to feel such comfort and intimacy with my fellow students - by the end of the course, it really felt like a safe familial environment where I could express anything that needed to move through me. To use the cocoon analogy of Bill Plotkin, Amy is a skilled cocoon-builder. The container of the class that was co-created felt like a regular coming-home and a safe place to land each week." - Thea

The Golden Stone Immersion will help you remember how to align yourself with the wise and intricate forces of nature. It will help you land within the wider biosphere, discovering what it means to be human within our wider ecosystem of not only the physical natural world, but within the unseen, energetic, and spiritual worlds sharing our Earth plane.

 

This program is designed to help you find a sense of true belonging, being at home in your own body and in relationship with Sacred Other, our more-than-human kin, and your spirit guides and allies.

 

You will learn to live with a mindset of reverence, reciprocity and genuine connection. And your nervous system will settle as you live from this sense of place.

 

The Golden Stone immersion program is a place to open to mystery, magic, and energy. A place to truly come to know yourself and come into wholeness. It is a place for you to anchor into your body and step into your power, a power that’s derived from true connection with the forces of the wider wild world.

 

During the program you will explore the path of meaningful relationship, beginning with the Self before extending out to include our non-human kin and the wider web of wholeness.

"The content of the school, your spirit, your container, everything was absolutely fabulous, and I loved it. I look to you as a mentor. You are a wise, wise soul. I don’t know how may trips you’ve had, but it’s significant."

- Rick

Why Join the Golden Stone Immersion?

In our modern world, separation and disconnection from our wild soul, the living heart of the Earth, the spiritual forces of life, and our bodies have led to incredible amounts of pain and suffering not only in our personal lives, but in the world at large.

 

Much of the harm we enact towards others, the Earth, and our own selves stems from this severance.

 

I truly believe that when you form meaningful relationship with something, it is much more difficult to perpetuate harm. You enter into a state of reverence. And from this state, much healing can occur, and our genuine need for connection with the spiritual fabric of Earth and Self can be met.

 

This is why I created this program. For a place to heal our isolation and separation and once again walk the path of belonging and inter-being with all life. So we can finally wake up from the harm we cause due to our own pain. So we can align with our unique medicine for the collective.

 

By healing our own woundings, learning the language of our body and soul, and listening deeply to the whispers of the Earth spirits, we come into wholeness. We return to a sense of true connection, relationship, and understanding. We then become the healing the collective needs.

 

The time is well past now for us to walk this path of healing.

 

So I invite you to join me on this sacred mission of whole-ing. A mission of returning to our birthright of inter-being and inter-belonging.

Golden Stone Wisdom School amy
Forest Golden Stone Wisdom School

The Golden Stone Immersion is both a deeply healing journey, as well as a curriculum in learning energetic techniques and tools, the medicine of the plants, ceremonial techniques, and sacred rhythmic living within the seasons and cycles of the moon.

 

The journey will begin at Fall Equinox, and follow guidance from seasonal wheel of the year. For the dark 6 months of the year you will unravel, let go, discover, journey, heal, and re-member yourself in alignment with the Heart of the Earth. You will learn how to deeply care for your own body and soul, as well as the beings that share this Earth plane.

 

During the Autumn months of descent you will turn towards the Self, explore your own body’s wisdom, and create solid foundations of true, lasting, wellness. You will unravel, stalk your shadow-selves, work with spirit guides, and find self-forgiveness and compassion.

 

After this first half you will have completely changed how you relate to your body and yourself. You will feel a sense of embodied connection, resourcefulness, and empowerment.

 

As we step into Winter and the light begins to return, you will start to look outwards at your relationship with Sacred Other: the plant spirits, the land, the animals, and stone allies. We will work from the animistic perspective. You will discover what it means to be in sacred reciprocity, and carry reverence towards the Earth.

 

After the second half of the program you will feel an expansive sense of place, belonging, and rich connection with our more-than-human kin. You will feel aligned with the seasonal ebbs and flows, and in relationship with how your personal rhythms interact with the wider cycles of nature.

Through relationship with Earth, we come to know our bodies.

Through relationship with the spiritual guides, we come to know our soul.

Through relationship with the animate forces of life, we come to know our wholeness.

Through relationship with our body, we come to know the multi-dimensional nature of reality.

Details of the Journey

"Thanks to the content of the course itself, I feel like I have a more compassionate and clear understanding of how my body speaks to me. I also feel myself leaning into symbolic and spiritual interpretation of the natural world around me, engaging in a more child-like, sacred, and playful way of interacting with other Earth organisms."

"I was familiar with a lot of the course content, however had never seen a course that so intricately wove everything together - in the way that it is all already connected. To explore the seasons, the chakras, plant spirit medicine, inner healing, AND doing so from a space that unlearns and heals harm from capitalism, colonization, and patriarchy -  it’s a truly incredible offering. Amy has organized the content in such an intuitive way where each piece is reinforcing the lessons the others have to offer. She helps make the connections visible and understandable, and drops deeper into the content than any other course I’ve experienced while supporting each member’s pace and needs." - Alexandra

Through live weekly calls and sharing circles, along with video, audio, and written materials, you will step into deep knowing of yourself, your empowerment and claim ownership of your sacred medicine for the world.

 

This 6 month immersive program is a comprehensive look at what keeps us disconnected, and provides ways to bring ourselves and our lives back into alignment with connection, meaning, and purpose.

"Very powerful and deep healing of my self-worth happened over these 6 months. I have really begun to tap into an embodied experience of life and also setting boundaries in work and personal settings- which is showing up as effectiveness at work and standing in my own personal power. The content was so rich and multi-faceted and really reflects our richness and our multi facetedness. I'm still working with the material every morning and still working with the clearing of my chakras. Every piece of the curriculum is a rich fractal- the more I work with it, the more multi dimensional my life is becoming."

-- Dee

"GSWS was a safe haven every week. It really helped ground me through the changing seasons and allowed me to find more joy and awe in how life was changing around me and within me. I looked forward to each call and the opportunity to connect with others on a similar journey + with a similar desire to learn more about animism and plant spirit medicine. 

 

I now have a deeper understanding of the information coming through my body and how to tune into my energy centers. I developed a greater sense of trust in my intuition, as well as a greater confidence to follow where my intuition is leading me. I am still grieving many things, but find relief and beauty in surrendering to the powerful teachings that grief provides"

-- Alexandra

"Amy, you’ve been life-changing for me. You’ve given me a tether to the world for my core soul longings that I didn’t know how else to find."

"6 months feels like a long time on the front side of it, but having the school be 6 months gave it a lot of time for me to keep coming back to the material, and I can tell that a lot of things have stuck because of that, which is awesome. I was also so connected to the group, and I definitely looked forward to our weekly calls. If I kind of got away from myself and our practices, the calls always brought me back."    

- Hailey

"I really liked that the school was 6 months because you have to show up and practice these things over and over again. You don’t just wake up one day and say “I’m gonna dismantle my structure of knowing” and then you do it and it’s done. It doesn't work that way. It takes a minute. Your class really fed that willingness and curiosity for me to just kind of keep me going."

I have a fraught relationship with spirituality, and you've made me feel safe and seen and accepted, which doesn’t happen often. I don’t always feel like I fit in. I'm so grateful for what you’re bringing into the world. You really are a blessing.

-Miriam

I want to help you find a true sense of HOME inside your skin. 

I want to help you to feel a true sense of BELONGING within the community of Earth. 

And now I ask you, take a moment to check in with your body.

 

Close your eyes. Take a few breaths. When you think about joining this school how do your heart and your gut feel?
 

Do they feel alive, excited, open? Does this School feel like a YES in your body? 

Then listen to its wisdom. Your mind may make up excuses, but the path of the body (through which your soul speaks) is calling to you.

Does it feel tight, constricted, or lethargic? Does this School feel like a NO in your body?

It may not be the right time. You might not be ready, or it might not be the right fit.

spiritual healing in Portland

But sometimes fear can be mistaken for a No.

 

And so often what we’re most afraid of is what our soul is really yearning for.

 

So, check in again, and ask this part of you (your heart or gut or wherever you feel the constriction) what is it that’s making it contract? Can you sense an emotion, a story, words, or other wisdom from your body? Can you discern whether it’s fear or a true no?

 

(We will practice tracking this inner knowing in the first weeks of the School)

 

Whatever your answer may be today, may you find exactly what you’re soul is looking for, and where your own, deepest, truest healing aligns with the healing of the Earth and our more-than-human kin.

Golden Stone

What is the golden stone?

The Golden Stone was a literal gift to me from the Ocean Mother. 

 

Standing at her feet, after promising myself to be a vessel for her wisdom and the wider forces of Life, this stone was revealed as the waves receded, sitting at the center of a circle of black stones. 

The Golden Stone is the guiding light of your own soul, leading you through the darkness and into your own embodied wisdom.

It is the unexpected gift or serendipity from the Universe letting you know you’re right where you need to be, on track, in alignment, and being held by the wise and intricate forces of nature.

 

It is the blessing from the Otherworld, a gift from the spirits, from your guides.

  

It is a doorway to your soul’s calling, mouth a-gape at intricate mystical life.

It is a clue to the wider confounding labyrinth of your purpose.

My Story

I’ve been a bodyworker and energy healer for 15 years, and I’ve held ceremony, and taught plant spirit medicine, energetic techniques, and seasonal healing for the past 12 years.

 

As a highly sensitive empath, I always felt a like the modern world was harsh, unkind, and disconnected from the true nature of reality. Growing up, I contorted myself to fit into the false narratives and expectations that this world puts on us, that I see so many others around me doing as well.

 

I’m passionate about helping to shift these capitalistic, individualistic, and patriarchal paradigms that cut us off from honoring our bodies and our kinship with the Earth. I’ve found that in order to heal, we have to get back to the keystones of meaningful, interconnected life.

Amy Terepka Golden Stone Wisdom School

Over the past 18 years of my own healing journey, I’ve discovered the incredible benefit of being a sensitive person as someone who cannot, and will not, live in the unrealistic and disconnected film that overlays deeper, truer reality.

 

I’ve studied with many incredible teachers, both human and non-human (plant spirits, spirit guides, stones, etc.), and have developed my own way of integrating the worlds of energy and spirit into the material, lived experience.

 

I focus on the body as the basis of experiencing the energetic and magical worlds. And believe that the body is where the soul and spirit collide. The deep earth and the far heavens. Our bodies are a trading post of information from the cosmos. 

 

I’ve cultivated a trusting, loving relationship with my body, my energy body, and my Self. I’ve found true, meaningful relationship with plant spirits, with my ancestors, with the elements of nature, and the living land. I’ve cultivated a depth of relationship with the natural world that is fulfilling and sincere. And I want this for you too.

I lean into the wisdom from my ancestral Celtic peoples, and I do my best to honor the teachings, teachers, and cultures that I've learned from who are not in my ancestral lineage.

 

I believe this work is for all humans, as all of us have a lineage in which we find people who have deep relationship with the living Earth, and know how to trust their intuitive bodies. Some of us may have to go back farther in history than others, but I promise you, this magic lives in you, your body, and your lineage.  

 

I am a Scorpio sun, Cancer moon, and Capricorn rising.
