In Memoriam of Bradford C. Collins, October 12, 1955- August 2, 2014

Bradford C. Collins, Ph. D., was the Co-Director of Venus Rising Association for Transformation, Vice President of Venus Rising University for Shamanic Psychospiritual Studies and Director of the Transformation House Soul Recovery Program. A certi­fied Shamanic Minister, Shamanic Breathwork™ Teacher, Trainer and Facilitator, Brad was the Co-Director of the Shamanic Ministers’ Global Network. After a life-chang­ing vision he received during a breath­work jour­ney in 1994, Brad creat­ed the Shamanic Initiatory Priest Process (SIPP), a high­ly expe­ri­en­tial and trans­for­ma­tive process designed to help men step into their authen­tic power and Visionary Leadership. A pioneer in plan­e­tary trans­for­ma­tion for more than three decades, part of Brad’ s mission encom­passed land-stew­ard­ship.

With a back­ground in Environmental Science and Education, Brad was a leader in the devel­op­ment of the natur­al foods move­ment in the United States. He helped form many of the orig­i­nal organ­ic farm­ing stan­dards for sever­al states and educat­ed thou­sands of people in natur­al living and heal­ing. Brad held the vision of living in commu­ni­ty ever since he was a teenag­er. He and his wife, Linda Star Wolf, co-found­ed a commu­ni­ty and retreat center in the magi­cal blue moun­tains of west­ern North Carolina in 2003.

Brad was involved with 12 step recov­ery programs for more than 25 years. In his private shaman­ic coun­sel­ing prac­tice, Brad’ s passion was assist­ing others in releas­ing self-defeat­ing behav­ior patterns.

Providing safe and sacred space for those seek­ing his coun­sel, Brad offered loving kindess and accep­tance to every­one he worked with. Brad believed the shaman lives with­in each of us. He contin­ues to loving­ly hold this vision from the Other Worlds.
