From my most recent newsletter. Thought I would share.
Since living in Peru last year, I’ve submerged myself in the study of Amazonian Shamanism. As a result of the transformation I underwent during my stay in the jungle, I made a sacred vow to dedicate myself to the work of Shamanism, plant medicines and ultimately the wisdom of the Universe expressed through these vehicles. This journey has been extraordinary.
Through this work, we are shown the vast complexity of the human psyche. I call this ‘work’ because it is no simple task to face our shadows and consciously reenact what we have tried to forget. However, stuffing emotions and creating dormancy is no longer an option.
Our fragmentation and separation from Source has caused us pain and suffering. Without a vehicle for release, our suffering imprints our DNA and is re-birthed continuously until its unconscious patterns are identified, made conscious, and alchemized from suffering to forgiveness.
Through the shamanic tools of sacred song, sound and plant medicines, our deeply rooted unconscious patterns are revealed to us quickly. As we continue to peel back the layers, appearing abysmal at times, we ultimately arrive to the doorway of understanding that the Universe beyond the Ego is comprised of Love. Love is the epicenter of the Universe.
For me, April was impeccable in revealing latent patterns woven in the fabric of my family tree. This month, I have spent disentangling an immense web of ancestral patterns mired in the energy of “the perpetrator”. I am facing the shadows, completing the stories, and breaking the chain of violation that takes on many forms – verbal, emotional and sexual – that my Ego has been so fondly feeding upon.
The byline “I am not ______ enough” accompanies my story. Yet, it wasn’t until I began this work that its origins were firmly exposed. When you need to cure “dis-ease”, you look to the root of the problem for its solution. Most of us are in a state of disease. We need to radically purge what no longer serves us in order to raise our vibration and that of the planet to ride this incredible wave of accelerated expansive energy home, to the Universal Heart.
The Shamanic medicine path is phenomenal. It is the most incredible magic carpet ride filled with discovery, forgiveness and healing. As I have fully surrendered to the lessons and gifts, I feel as though I have plugged into a Universal Matrix. I no longer sit in the dark, fearful and wondering why I am here.
There is no stopping the energetic momentum created once you step into this knowing. I have come to realize the amazing powers of intention, meditation, visualization, sacred ritual, mantra and music as keys to unlocking our marvelous manifesting abilities. We all have these abilities. Now, is your time to unravel and put your stories to rest.
As I sit here writing, we are playing through the Scorpio full moon, a powerful time (http://www.bodyworkastrology.blogspot.com/ )for planting the seeds of intention and watching them manifest. What will you offer this world in service of the greatest good? The world is waiting for YOU and YOUR unique gifts!

THE CONSCIOUS MAP…
Saturday: An introductory weekend experiential workshop in which the classic method of shamanic journey work is taught. Utilizing the way of the shaman, we connect with the inner levels of reality, awareness and experience to find our spirit helpers and teachers, those inner sources who are intimately connected with our life purpose, and who provide us with power, protection, knowledge and support.
Sunday: We invite you on a journey that will cleanse your body, clear your mind and raise your vibration. With a combination of vinyasa flow yoga, Native American tribal sounds and shamanic healing rituals, this workshop integrates ancient wisdom and healing modalities from multiple traditions. The pulsating sounds of shamanic drums, singing bowls and sacred chants weave powerfully with guided movement, focused breath and mindful meditation. Together as one, we will cultivate our prana (life force energy), liberate our hearts and elevate our consciousness in an invigorating celebration of love and transformation.
