Your Facilitators

The Golden Hummingbird

Foster Perry

Has travelled the world studying, teaching and practicing the joy of self-healing for 30 years. After graduating from Georgetown University, he moved to New York City to study art, design and psychology. It was there that his life reached a turning point when he was struck by lightning. This event served as Foster’s calling, compelling him to leave his life, his family, and his friends and embark on a life long study of spiritual traditions and practices around the world. Foster studied ritual, ceremony and healing with Shamans in the southwestern United States and South America. He now synthesizes his extensive knowledge of Native American, South American, Asian and European healing traditions with spiritual practices into what has come to be known as Hummingbird Medicine, a transformative teaching modality. Hummingbird Medicine aids the participants in healing their wounds, and releasing their fears, freeing them to experience again their love, their life, and their divine joy. Foster works as a ceremonial leader, workshop facilitator, author and recording artist and his Hummingbird Healing Technique has earned him respect around the world.
