Here’s what some students from 2018 have said about the week-long course:

This first week of diving deep into the sacred feminine and the wisdom of Mother Earth has brought up deep transformation and healing for me. Many obstacles that had held me back to become a Medicine Woman could be transformed with love, laughter and the infinite wisdom of the sisters’ circle. I am so grateful to you, Iris, and to all my sisters for holding sacred space for me/ for one another, for crying and laughing together, for creating this wonderful week of magick and healing! My heart opens wide when I think back to all that I’ve experienced in the arms of the Great Mother and of my sisters.

Thank you for showing us the way back to ourselves and Mother Earth, dearest sister Iris!

Much love and blessings,


Profound, magically transformative deeply inspiring teachings, rituals and ceremonies guided by beautiful medicine woman Iris Lican have helped me on many different levels to heal and connect with my own truth, strength, wisdom and beauty.

Exploring the feminine mysteries and connecting deeply with Mother Earth and her magical soil of Avalon made me realised how everything and everyone is sacred and we all have a purpose from the smallest being all is meaningful, all is connected and equally important.
It has been a truly incredible experience to honor the sacredness of life and womanhood, to feel wild and free and tap into my inner power.

I am deeply grateful to Iris for sharing her knowledge with love and compassion. After our training I felt incredibly empowered, peaceful and bathed in bliss.


The Wild Medicine Woman Course run by Iris Lican is one of the most inspiring courses I have ever been on. Iris’s wealth of knowledge, the creativity with which she teaches and her passion for this body of work, created such a powerful awakening within me. I am deeply grateful for all I received from this week. The sisterhood that was created between the women in the group was profoundly beautiful and taught me about the strength that comes when women sit together in circle. It reinforced to me that soft empowerment lies in our vulnerabilities and when we meet each other with love and acceptance magic happens.

Iris created a space where I felt absolutely held and heard. She is an incredible woman with a special gift that she shares so generously. This course was a deep dive into my inner landscape and also an opportunity to learn potent ceremonies and healings. The course is a weaving together of absolute richness and I can’t recommend it enough.


During the intensive training I have felt so connected with the Great Mother Earth and felt the love from Her.

Iris has created such a sacred lovely space for us to learn more about Shamanism and the knowledge how to honour the Earth throug ceremonies with songs, drums, dancing, meditations etc.

Personally it was a marvelous and lovely journy. During the drum healing I get free of some old old feelings – I have tried it several times before – but this time they are gone forever. I can see the change in my face – and for the first time I can look in the mirror and say: “I love you” and indeed feel it in my heart. ❤

It has been the most fantastic, lovely and amazing journy and I am so greatfull and want to thank all sisters in the circle. ❤


I am continuing being very grateful to you and the wisdom you shared as lots of things have moved me from inside manifesting in great stuff.

Im grateful to your teaching as your creative way of teaching and always listening and seeing each person.

Encouraging us to bring our own creativity into our healing ceremonies is very important and you have really done so, which I appreciate a lot.
