Peter Scanlan was a clinical psychologist in private practice for 34 years in Nashville, Tennessee. He trained with Animas Valley Institute and with School of Lost Borders as a vision quest guide and was a lead guide for the Animas Valley Institute for 16 years.

He is dedicated to guiding people to the edge of the deepest mysteries, holding sacred space while they plunge into those depths, and then honoring the unique power and truth of the stories that they bring back from those journeys. He brings heart presence and a playful spirit to his work.
"You see - in my day job - I'm a scientist. It's my job to not "buy" anything, to constantly question. And that's fine until you get onto the path of Soul, the door to the Underworld. At that point, all that good skepticism is good for is figuring out which Soul Guide you would trust with your life, and which you should run from. I've put dear Jade "to the test" since 2006. And I can tell you: she's solid. No airy-fairy bull... but instead loving, pragmatic, astute, compassionate, supportive, trustworthy, real. Downright scary, in fact, because... she'll go with you to where you need to go to find out who you are."
