AN OASIS FOR ANIMIST RITUAL ARTS
WHAT IS THE WELL?
THE WELL IS A CENTER for animist ceremony, bubbling up from the depths of submerged wisdom and medicine traditions around the world. We gather round to remember our BIRTHRIGHT of BELONGING to this precious planet. To re-animate our LINEAGES of LIBERATION.
THE WELL IS AN OASIS, an ancient watering hole where we immerse directly in our original Source Wisdom. During this era of great cultural corruption and toxification of lands and minds, we do what people have done since time immemorial — we “go to the well” for cleansing, clarity and connection. We tap into the cool, pure water from this ever-flowing Divine Fountain.
THE WELL IS A PORTAL into the culture-shifting work of ritual artists and animist healers. As Guardians of Sacred Water and Sacred Earth, we support healers who explore fundamental questions in their work:
how can we be in greater service to Life?
what is being asked of us, during these mythic times?
how can we offer access to the tools which support our emergent liberation theology movements?
THE WELL IS A HAVEN for the “moist arts” – a place where the wailers, keeners, and weepers among us revive the ancient lamentation traditions that are a part of everyone’s heritage. A place where we ritually honor our grief as a gateway, and regard our tears and cries of joy as beautiful offerings to the Holy Mother Waters.
An unabashedly syncretic mashup of teachings, ritual practices and commonsense which can adapt to fit any tradition.
We are creating seminars, workshops, and rituals in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Join us here, or bring us to your community.

GATHER AROUND THE WELL
A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTOR, Nala Walla
THE WELL is bubbling up a new type of ceremonial center, a “syncretic church” which has roots in animist wisdoms from around the world. Our gatherings, classes, rituals and prayer sessions aim to offer solace and refreshment FOR THE PEOPLE, in these times of rampant cultural and spiritual decay.
As spiritual nonprofit in its early phases, we are emanating a call to all who are tending to the deeper currents of the human experience.
We are the healers, and we are the wounded.
We are artists, ritualists, and storytellers. Poets and singers and dancers. We are lovers of liberation and justice. We are facilitators, ministers and grief workers. We are soil tenders, and community builders.
We aspire to podcasting, filmmaking, and more. All in service of our precious local waters, and local communities — both ecologic and mystic.
Soon after our founding in 2021, the Well raised nearly $500K for a black and indigenous landback project in Chimacum, WA. Thanks and praises to the divine flow! All the while we have been hosting regular ancestor work, prayer and song circles, healing sessions, and grief rituals.
We are excited to keep growing our circles of collaboration, so please get in touch if you see yourself reflected in our mission.
By re-orienting towards the sacred waters, we are remembering the profound beauty of our interconnected and animate world. Hand in hand, we circle around the Holy Source, to honor ancient traditions while forging a new path of reverence.
