Shayne Case's Under the Eagle's Wing Mentorship Program offered me quite a unique and nurturing opportunity to explore and cultivate my spiritual inner voice. I thoroughly loved working with the flowers and healing stones, aligning with their energies and learning how to make medicines with them.
Though I’m normally very shy, our hoop of participants became like a family over the year we were together. The sacred time in nature with Shayne and these sweet people was a healing balm for my heart.
I know the trajectory of energetic connection in Eagle School will continue to inform and guide my life forever.

I entered Under the Eagle’s Wing in a deep place of grief and the loneliness that accompanies it.
Through being in the community of Eagle’s Wing, surrounded by others on a journey to unfurl themselves, I was able to be witnessed in my grief in a way that our greater culture does not allow for, and it was nourishing beyond measure.
Through this process I learned that my story and the stories of others are spirit medicine. In addition to community, the mentorship itself provided me with a collection of gifts: flower and gem essences, a new love of stone medicine, and a profound relationship to earth and spirit.
This mentorship has opened ways of seeing within myself that I know continue to unfold today, leading to new opportunities and ways to engage in my practice.
I am forever grateful to Shayne and the other Eaglets I was able to share this journey with.

Under the Eagle’s Wing Mentorship for me is a foundation.
With a reverence for the natural world and some knowledge of energetic herbalism, primarily I came to the group as a teaching artist in academia, used to focusing my energy outward and towards things.
The mentorship taught me how to work with my own energy through taking the risk of vulnerability. While being held and supported as we explored our inner knowings with the plants, flowers, and gems as collaborators, deep resilience and connection was woven.
The spiritual growth that happened during the mentorship gave me the tools I need to balance my internal energies with external actions as I continue on my path of healership, and gave me a way to relate to myself that will be carried through the rest of my life.
Couldn’t recommend this mentorship enough.

The magic of Shayne is that she doesn’t introduce anything new, per se, but that she reconnects you in the most profound way to what is and always has been there holding you. Your ancestors, the plants, animals, and earth.
Shayne allows you to feel the radiating love of interconnectedness in an embodied, true way, all the while gently guiding you back to this inner knowing and wisdom.
This is a process that I believe is most powerful when achieved relationally and through support of a person who lives and breathes this practice of connection to land and spirit every single day.
The transformation that occurs when blessed enough to work with Shayne is profound.
