Summer Healing Camp


  • 1155 County Road 6 Margaretville, NY United States (map)

Healing Camp is composed of five days of Huichol Shamanic Healing at the sacred ground of the Blue Deer Center. Through Eliot Cowan’s authentic training and apprenticeship with Huichol Indian shaman don Guadalupe Gonzalez Rios, you will discover that the medicine of the old cultures runs deep and exerts a powerful effect.

Eliot Cowan, a fully initiated Tsaurirrikame (Huichol shaman), has lead over 50 healing camps in the past two decades. Over the years he has gathered extensive experience working with the full spectrum of life events from birth to death.

Your stay at Healing Camp includes daily private sessions with Eliot, time for contemplation and reflection, gathering in community around the warmth of the fire, and opportunities to connect with the natural world under the guidance of Marakame Justin Starting and Marakame Scott Sheerin.

The Camp provides a rare opportunity to experience a temporary village created for the express purpose of bringing Huichol healing to you, because living even briefly within a healthy community contributes to your well-being.

The sacred land of the Center will support the Camp, where music and celebration will light up our days and nights, while our wonderful chef and staff ensure you enjoy the right conditions to open yourself to healing.
