Carol Hannagan

 

Being of service, has called Carol to new directions. She is working with Severely Disabled students as a teacher. This by far, is the most challenging avenue in her life, but the joy of having these students grow is wonderful. The students range from orthopedic, blind, deaf, down syndrome, autistic, and multiple disabilities. To be able to see past the disability and reach the spirit of each child is a joy few have experienced. This is magic!

Making the transition from the corporate world has not been easy for Carol, but the single most rewarding thing is knowing she is doing her Sacred Medicine and helping others discover their purpose. The joy to be the channel for Great Spirit is more rewarding than anything she could have ever imagined. Watching Spirit move through the people that go out on their quest, is a magnificent reward that she wishes everyone could experience.

Of Cherokee heritage, Carol is a naturalist, environmentalist, wilderness expert, and offers earth spirituality experiences through her organization -- Sacred Journeys. One of four generations of native Californians, Carol Hannagan has studied and learned in almost all of California's wilderness areas. From the age of six, her grandfather and father took her out to hike the mountains, fly fish the rivers, track animals, backpack, and weather watch. They trained her to survive in nature in a balanced and harmonious way.

She learned respect for all of nature, from the plants to the rocks and soil. She knows how to touch the Spirit which moves in all things. After many requests, Carol is now teaching others how to go back "home" to the earth and feel safe, secure, and loved by all that is part of Earth Mother.

Carol has studied with many of the masters in wilderness training. She has discovered, through this learning, commonalities of techniques and customs, and now teaches others so they may feel the joy of being at one with nature.

Carol's partner "Sedona" greeting a questerFor many years as an executive in the corporate world, Carol was vibrantly successful traveling around the world as a women's apparel buyer for one of the largest retail department stores in the world. Then, very unexpectedly, she became critically ill. The doctor didn't know what was the problem. After four months of being bedridden and sleeping 20 to 22 hours a day, she knew she had to take her healing into her own hands. She went back to the old ways of her people. She went to Sedona, Arizona to work with the Native American people who helped her by getting back on the land. Blending traditional medicine and the ancient ways of her people she began the slow recovery back to wholeness. She was told by the shaman that it was her purpose to teach of the Spirit of the Earth Mother. She was told to return herself back to the Earth for her direction as she had when she was little. After two years of introspective healing on all levels, and many Vision Quests she committed herself to doing the work which Great Spirit had given her the gifts to teach.

Making the transition from the corporate world has not been easy for Carol, but the single most rewarding thing is knowing she is doing her Sacred Medicine and helping others discover their purpose. The joy to be the channel for Great Spirit is more rewarding than anything she could have ever imagined. Watching Spirit move through the people that go out on their quest, is a magnificent reward that she wishes everyone could experience.
