Sit Spot

Grandfather Stalking Wolf’s most important ritual was the Sit Spot. Throughout his entire life, as his Grandfather Coyote Thunder had shown him, he maintained this simple practice that he referred to as his Sacred Area or Medicine Place. Even during his nomadic journeys, he would stop for an hour or so at dawn and dusk to give thanks and pray. I was fortunate enough to get to visit Stalking Wolf’s Sacred Area in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. The Sit Spot is the most essential core routine we teach at White Pine. It will deeply enhance all of your work in each of the 8 Shields. Whether you are cultivating a quiet mind, learning the language of the birds, hunting, tracking, or honing your survival skills, the Sit Spot will be your greatest Ally. This Guild will guide you through all of our favorite exercises to deepen your Sit Spot Practice.
