Amanda has participated in and led many different ceremonies around the world. She hosts public group ceremonies at sacred places to bring people together to heal our waters, our land, and ourselves.  She integrates what she has learned from elders around the world in different cultures with what is needed at the time for those present.


Courses and Talks

Amanda teaches Geography & Anthropology courses that focus on the intersections between humans belief systems and the natural world. She is available to give guest lectures or workshops related to shamanism, rituals/ceremonies, and spiritual landscapes.



Amanda offers weekly Hula classes and workshops focusing on Hula. Amanda's hula classes bring together the mind, body, and spirit. You'll learn physical movements and choreographies but most importantly, you'll feel the connection to spirit and learn the meaning of the movements and dances. She is also available for school cultural events. 



Retreats to Hawai'i and Ireland as well as to places special in the Appalachian Mountains are held throughout the year. The retreats incorporate meditations, ceremonies, hiking, visiting sacred places or spiritual significant places as well as learning about the history, geography, and culture of the area.
