“There is always excitement surrounding a class offering from Mr. Trueblood,” says College President, Jim Nolan. “To learn traditional ways of healing from an internationally acclaimed figure is an opportunity few students have elsewhere.”
During the 3-day course students will immerse themselves in traditional North American traditions of purification and healing. Sweat lodge and pipe ceremonies are among the indigenous rituals in which attendees will take part. By the end of the weekend the participants will have come together as a community to pray for themselves, their families, Mother Earth and all of life.
THE GREAT CEREMONY OF LIFE will be held from Friday April 26th through Sunday April 28th at and near the Southwestern College campus. Available both to students and professionals looking to further their education, the class will count as either two quarter units or 20 Continuing Education Credits.
