Renee Baribeau Fire Ceremony


Set Sail. Embark on a 10-month  Apprenticeship/Teacher Program with Renee Baribeau, The Practical Shaman and Team.

This work is based on her Nautilus Gold Award-Winning Hay House Book, Winds of Spirit, and decades of shamanic initiations, extensive training, and direct revelation. Renee is well known for the weekly podcast, The Shamans Cave which she co-hosts with Sandra Ingerman.  This journey is for practitioners interested in ancient shamanic wisdom tools. Please be prepared to dive deep into the essence of your soul’s longing, and experience personal transformation, wind alchemy, initiation, and community. You will learn to move effortlessly through life with the Wind in your sails.

The Wind Mastery course is a 10-month self-mastery program that will prepare you to bring ancient shamanic wisdom into your daily life and back into your community. This work will prepare you to do wind work healing, teach beginners classes, and walk-in balance in your business and every day life.

This is not a program for window shoppers or seekers who attend serial webinars hoping to garner magic without sincere effort. In our time together we will be applying universal principles of shamanism including surrender, inventory, forgiveness, and service. If you are a seeker who likes to juggle multiple classes at one time, this program is not for you. Our goal is to prepare you to stand in your power and to be of service.

If you are still reading, then I would like to know more about you and your intention for this coming year. This course is ideal for both beginners and advanced students of shamanism. The Wind Spirits only require sincere willingness and an authentic heart. This is a program for those who want to incorporate wind work into their healing practices, business endeavors, and those who are ready to teach this work.  Please fill out the application form to learn more about this program.

You need to master WindWork®

So you can flow with the wind and easily manifest your potential in life.

The truth is: Deep down, your soul knows exactly what to do.
You have the answers inside of you.
But you aren’t accessing them.
And you need something powerful, natural, and physically palpable to help you access the answers.


Yup, you heard me. WE need wind Power.

And the best part is…

You don’t have to be an experienced student of shamanism to take this.

This works whether you are beginner or advanced.

All WE  ask is that you have a sincere willingness to incorporate this wisdom into your

healing practices, business endeavors, and those ready to learn about this work.

We Do it Together

In Community

The Wind Team at our Annual Fall Reunion: Brigid Hopkins, Terry Morgan, and Kerry Wanamaker

“I’m sorry,” you ask, “Did you just say I need THE WIND?”

You just have to learn how to tune into your truth.


• Align yourself with your highest aspirations in life.

• Be at peace with, and in control of your life.

• Manifest your dreams with ease and flow.

Have the tools to be able to teach WIND WORK®.

Studies say that we’re able to retain knowledge the most when we teach. That’s the reason I decided to put out my most comprehensive program to date. You’ll be able to master WindWork®, practice it in your daily life, and teach what you learned!

You want meaning and connection.
You want to feel FULFILLED and FREE
(and NOT just in your bank account.)

I’m talking about that overflowing, joyful feeling when your soul and purpose become perfectly and wonderfully aligned. I’m talking about that restful, energetic sense when you know that your plans are steadily and organically moving in the exact right direction for your life.

I’m talking about that FLOW.

Imagine a life where you:

  • Are free of doubt and completely crystal clear about your life’s mission.
  • Let go of that dreaded anxiety about your calling, and dive into your gifts with passion and joy.
  • Are able to accomplish goals ABOVE AND BEYOND what you ever imagined, because your plans are FINALLY aligned with your deeper vision.
  • Aren’t stressed out or slowed down by rough waters and tricky spots because you have developed a calm inner knowing of where to navigate to continue smoothly on your way.
  • Are truly marked by peace and purpose.
  • Completely honed in on YOUR unique direction on this planet.
  • Being guided by the quiet whisper, awakening gusts, and cleansing power of the wind.
  • Learning to navigate the changes of life to truly live your purpose is what it’s all about. I am here to help you do it by harnessing the power of the wind.

Thank You Terry for your insight.

What is Wind Work®?

Wind Work® is an ancient, practical, applicable, set of navigational tools designed to provide guidance, focus and direction in your life, no matter which direction the wind is blowing. This work is about meditating on the energy of something powerfully and physically REAL (the wind) and engaging its natural force to create incredible change, clarity, and contentment in your life. Let’s be clear: This isn’t the same old stuff you’ve practiced in the past. This isn’t meaningless mantras or white-knuckling growth or making a vision board and then sitting back and waiting.

The Wind Mastery 10-month journey is practical study of specific tools I will teach you to unblock resistance, move through your struggles, and truly harvest bounty in your spiritual journey. There will be space for pulling weeds, tending to projects, personal growth, while learning how to follow the mystical movement of the winds of change in your life.




Disclaimer: This program is Spirit led and is co-created with ever shifting winds.

Month One: Calling Upon Your Harvest and Preparing to Enter the Domain of the Wild Winds ~ Timeline Exercise

In this first MONTH you will harness the powerful energy of the group to create your own wind Prayer flags to assist you in a massive transformation you’ll experience during the 10-month journey. We will start with cultivating a foundation of AWAKENING THE SACRED WIND SPACE, identification of patterns, and releasing to clear the way for new growth, and use LIFE MAPPING and other CREATIVE METHODS, to hone in on a new direction you’d like to take! We will create our community Wind Altar and you will create a personal outdoor altar.

Month Two: Creating a New Vision Map

Becoming aware of your cycles as we work with Wind Mapping. This process helps you to see the wind patterns in your life and begin to work with The Cardinal wind of the East Eurus to evaluate how these patterns either support or disrupt your life cycles.

Month Three: Time Bending ~ Moving From the Linear to the Sacred Calendar Through a Dismemberment Process

The art of making magical charms known as wind knots, dates back to the thirteenth century, and is attributed to the wizards of Lapland, the witches of Shetland and the Isle of Man. This knowledge and art form has been long hidden from general use for hundreds of years, because it is so powerful in bringing about change! You will create your own wind knots and begin harnessing the power of the Wind to support your goals during the year.

Month Four: Navigating Life Using the  5-Dynamic Wind Patterns of Creativity

Wind Alchemy is ancient wisdom relevant to today’s ever-changing landscape. Understanding your personal dynamic of creation can help you navigate life, while being wide-awake using your internal intuitive guidance system and wind magic.

Month Five: Wind Alchemy ~ Practical Application of the Dynamic Wind Patterns in Your Life and Healing Work

We work as a group to learn about, and practice the importance of ethics, and non-violent communications. These are building blocks toward becoming a healing practitioner in preparation for Wind Tracking for personal healing and replenishment. This method is not available or being taught anywhere else in our learning library. It is designed ONLY for the Wind Mastery Students, as this method is empowering and life changing!

Month Six: Converting Energy Into Form Using the Wind Patterns of Creativity

Now that we have whet your Whistle with tracking, we take this one of a kind healing modality even deeper. Here you will practice doing tracking and clearings (Wind Whistle is highly suggested) for others in the cohort. You will continue to build your skills as a tracker.

Month Six: Whistle Up a Wind for Health and Healing. Working with Wind Spirits for Personal, Client and Collective Healing

As we continue to grow parts of us, our story or our beliefs are ready to be harvested, and the rest composted back into the soil. We are walking together through the process of conscious death and conscious harvesting.

Month Eight: Shamanic Death and Transformation

This month is about Values from Society, Family and Self. We look at the false persona we create when our values are not aligned with our purpose. We will journey to the cave of shadow archetypes to remove sacred value contracts.

Month Nine: Rebirth

We work with the Healing Light of the Dynamic Wind Patterns of Creation for building a new Spiritual Foundation for Navigation.

Month Ten: Welcome Home – Whoopila Celebration

 I began my journey with Renee when I committed to holding space as a Fire Tender last October I think it was. Well, since these past months, including the 5 week Mastery class of Winds Of Spirit I can say that my life has changed for the better and I’m so much happier .I navigate and trust my messages from spirit! I am grateful for your amazing work Renee!

Your class is exactly what I need right now. The tools you are giving us are fantastic.

The winds of Spirit are here to move us through the changes necessary to heal ourselves, each other and Mother earth. This course will give you practical and effective ways to ground your vision into the here and now. It will help you remove the obstacles standing in our way of tilling the soil. It will guide you to plant seeds to be grown and tended to, in order to yield the harvest of your dreams.

During our 5 weeks together I learned the importance of embodied instruction. Renee’ is breaking ground with Wind Work, which is a new language and content. Renee’s knowledge gave ground to help the group stay moving with this deeply experiential work. I am an instant devotee to Wind work! It is essential on one’s spiritual journey.

Heather Lee Huff

This course kicked my butt, it created a side of myself that I had no idea was in me to grow from. Now I will not live without this work. I’ll weave this work into my daily life. I loved the friendships and trust among all involved. Renee says it like it is, she moves, and pushes you to really feel the wind navigation and grow. I’m grateful Renee Baribeau for believing in me.

Wind Clan Member

This course was a deep dive into buried treasure.  Working with resistance isn’t easy but the rewards are huge.  Renee is an excellent guide.  There needed to be trust, and there was, heaps of it.
Wind Clan Member

Last Fall I did the Finish the Year Strong program with Renee. I went into it with some career goals I wanted to tackle and some personal issues that I wanted to experience more healing and peace about. The program gave me the tools and processes I needed to work towards and through all that I brought to the course for tending plus so much more than I could ever have imagined. Still, with just a little over a week left of Winter, I am still experiencing new results and growth (and honestly, kind of blowing myself away!) with the changes that are coming and with much less effort than before. The biggest gift I got from Finish the Year Strong was deep alignment with myself….and more trust in trusting that so that anything out of alignment can fall away. I cannot believe how different I feel in just two seasons and I can’t wait for the Spring program! I feel like I am finally in my body and fully present since I finished the last wind class.
