Lynn Andrews Center for Sacred Arts & Training

Lynn Andrews Center for Sacred Arts & Training

In the late 1980s, popular New Age teacher Lynn Andrews responded to her many readers' desire for more in-depth teachings by holding an annual four-day retreat at Joshua Tree, California. The author of more than a dozen books, Andrews has presented herself as a contemporary shaman and the spokesperson of a secret Native American organization, the Sisterhood of the Shields. Her public presentations offered some of the broad perspectives and invited initiation. The retreats offered the opportunity for involvement in the basic occult practices associated with the shamanistic path.

The retreats also served as a base from which an even more structured program emerged in 1994 as the Lynn Andrews Center for Sacred Arts & Training. The center, described as a school without walls, offers a two-year and a four-year curriculum for those who wish to learn the practical and experiential aspects of the shamanism which Andrews has discussed in her many books. The work teaches awareness and use of personal magical energies, though the exact contents, as with most occult teachings, have not been publicized.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
