About

Reviving the Sacred is an organization that seeks to foster awareness of the psychological and spiritual healing potential of humanity’s relationship with the natural world through individual and group sessions, public workshops and trainings, publications and sound recordings. Founder David Edward hosts local journey circles and public workshops. He also offers individual sessions designed to promote healing through nature and ancient wisdom.

Growing up between the Appalachian foothills of North Georgia, USA and the pastoral coast of East Sussex, England, David Edward developed a foundational spiritual connection with the natural world. This connection is at the core of David’s passion for ecopsychology and shamanic healing. 

David spent his young adulthood on pilgrimages to New Zealand, the American Southwest, and Hawaii’s Big Island before settling in Tucson, Arizona in 2005. A professional writer and musician, David then began to apply his artistic sensibilities to depth psychology, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology in 2015. Learning the tenets of modern counseling practices from a spiritual perspective, David studied under Dr. Jo Ruddy, an accomplished metaphysician and hypnotherapist who was also a licensed counselor. David was ordained as an Animist Minister from Tucson’s Web of Life Animist Church following an extensive year long training program.
