Shaman • Healer • Ceremonial Leader
Brant Secunda is a shaman, healer and ceremonial leader in the Huichol Indian tradition of Mexico.
He completed a twelve-year apprenticeship with Don José Matsuwa, the renowned Huichol Shaman who lived to be 110 years old and who adopted Brant as his grandson.
In 1979, Brant Secunda established the Dance of the Deer Foundation Center for Shamanic Studies to disseminate and preserve Huichol culture, practices, and traditions, and to provide direct assistance with the goal of promoting self-sufficiency and economic independence.
In the decades since, Brant has been leading conferences, workshops, and retreats around the globe. He also is a co-founder of the American Herbalist Guild, the Peace University, and the Huichol Foundation.
