My name is Suza Bedient, and below are my credentials for creating Tree of Life Mentoring
Looking for deeper access to the wisdom of the earth, I have become an initiated Mesa-Carrier in the Andean tradition. My initiation and continued study have been under the mentorship of Marti Spiegelman and The Shaman’s Light™ program. I continue my initiation at ever-higher levels, and have been honored to work with traditional shamans in Peru and Tuva. I have been a wild child, always. I was raised between the Chesapeake Bay and the Appalachian Mountains, sailing and hiking, craving deep wilderness. I eventually became a Senior NOLS Field Faculty for the past 25 years, with over 330 weeks in remote settings. This work has lead me to wild places in Australia, New Zealand, Baja California, Kenya, and the Himalaya, as well as my beloved Wyoming. (all the photos on my website and FB are my own).
I majored in biology in college, and amongst other things, taught human anatomy and physiology at the Port Townsend School of Massage. This is where I became interested in the incredible potential of being human, and the brilliant part the body plays to bring us back to our senses and greater connection to the Web of Life.
We are The People in this greater Living System. When we re-member this, a viable way forward appears where we remember that we are meant to create abundance and thrive.
