Suza Bedient Suza‘s roots tap deeply into wild places. Her skills in engaging earth energies began as a child exploring the Appalachian Mountains and the Chesapeake Bay. As an adult she broadened her explorations, including becoming a senior field instructor for the National Outdoor leadership Schools (NOLS) with over 300 weeks in wild places. She has spent much of her adult life living overseas, embracing mountains, rivers, and oceans. Suza majored in biology at the College of Wooster in Ohio then began her studies of the body-mind connection as a student, then as a teacher at the Port Townsend School of Massage in Washington. She became interested in human potential, listening deeply to the body’s intelligence and its link to the soul’s path. This inquiry spiraled her back to the power of landscapes and the callings of our wild selves. Looking for deeper access to the wisdom of the earth, she is honored to have worked with traditional shamans in Peru and Tuva.
