Sonic Shamanic with Nicole Doherty – Special Guest DJ Marques Wyatt
Lightning in a Bottle 2013 happens July 11th-15th 2013 at Lake Skinner in Temecula, CA.
Go Deep & Come Home! This workshop combines the ancient wisdom of vinyasa flow yoga, shamanic healing rituals and tribal medicine music to help you release energetic blockages, raise your vibration and re-connect you to the Universal Heart. Using prayer and ceremonial intention, we will design a safe and sacred container for you to dive deep within the many realms of existence. Guided meditation, victorious breath, and fluid asana movement will enable you to observe the energetic blockages and patterns that hold you back from what you are wanting to create. To eliminate these blockages, you will be guided using visualization, meditation, and the shamanic sound healing tools of drums, singing bowls, rattles, and mantra. As you dissolve barriers on your journey, you will come to the portal of awakened consciousness and the threshold to absolute and unconditional love, remembering who you REALLY are.

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!
If you want to hear more about my personal passage, experience ancient yogic wisdom, receive the keys to manifestation energy, and explore the path of Shamanism, come to a weekend of “Sacred Yoga & Shamanic Journeying”.

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.

Results are in! Empowering Yourself to Transform Workshops are Complete.
We just completed my post-South American spiritual journey inspired workshop series called Empower Yourself to Transform™. I must say the jungle did us good! We experienced two weeks of Yoga every morning and 3.5 hour Sunday Workshops that included one hour of motivational speaking and two hours of meditation, chanting, pranayama and Yoga. The Sundays were just outstanding!
Getting up every morning at 6:15a to get over to The Dance Loft in San Francisco was no small feat. I was used to doing this when working with the Amazonian Shamans since they rise with the sun, but in the city, when it’s cold and windy, it’s a different feeling. But every morning like clockwork, I entered that beautiful studio and found myself remarkably at home, on my mat breathing. I was so inspired that by the 7th day I started a food cleanse so I could boost my energy naturally instead of using those morning lattes!
We worked through the Chakra system for the first 7 days visualizing each energy body, beginning to understand where it is and how it affects the whole body temple. We observed each chakra as a container and asked to release emotional tension, resistance or fear. We went within to understand where blocks might reside. We accepted the emotions as they bubbled up and addressed them with compassion and love.
Sunday, May 8th was Mother’s Day and our Releasing Negative Thoughts and Patterns workshop. What a perfect day! For the moms in the room we gave eternal gratitude for their courage to bring energy into form, into matter, the root word for mother.
We discussed the human condition of the mind and its role in our experience here on this plane of existence. We explored how we use tools like Yoga, Meditation, and Inspirational Teachings to guide us out of the subconscious negative thinking to a more conscious awareness of who we really are.
We learned to not think of “negative” as being bad, but as a gift and a signpost along our journey that we can acknowledge to help guide us to decisions that feel good. Negative is not to be judged as bad, but simply the opposite of positive. We addressed the concepts of negative thoughts being fear and resistance. Once we could see our fears and resistance we could acknowledge those fears, identify the resistance and challenge our thoughts. In challenging our thoughts we became creative and could see other perspectives. We also played with tools from Yoga and the Law of Attraction. In Yoga when we are addressed with negative thoughts we replace them with positive ones, called Pratipaksha Bhavana. In the Law of Attraction, we call this Pivoting.
On Sunday, May 15th it was Bay to Breakers in San Francisco. A big day of celebration in the city, so it was vibrating with some seriously fun energy! This was our Tools for Transformation workshop day. This workshop was designed to be the follow up to the prior week. Once we release emotion and identify our resistance what do we do with this new information? I have spent the last several years in deep study of the Laws of the Universe and I wanted to share some fun games that I’ve encountered along the way. We laughed, we shared, we cried. It was a beautiful day. We watched videos about the power of language and words. We shared some of our patterns of thought. We explored partner work using affirmations and journaling. We powerfully affirmed each other’s gifts. We used engaging tools from the Law of Attraction work and other great inspirational teachers. In the end, we started to feel how we really could EMPOWER OURSELVES TO TRANSFORM™!
After each inspirational discussion, we got on our mats and explored the various gifts that we were granted 5000 plus years ago. I’m sure these gifts are a lot older than the recording of them. We practiced meditation and pranayama techniques to clear our mind and extend our prana through the breath. We chanted beautiful mantras and then opened our bodies with Yoga asanas.
Just writing this I get goose bumps (or as my friend calls them, truth bumps!). This work really resonates with my heart. I know that my path, my dharma, is to help inspire people to reach their highest potential. I am here for Joy and Love. That’s it. I want to bring you more Joy and Love!
Below are testimonials from some of the workshop attendees. If you wish to bring these workshops to your city, I would be honored and I love to travel!
“You are pure BRILLIANT Nicole-your words of wisdom, your knowledge, your teachings all truly Inspiring and Uplifting!” ~Val C
“Thank you for such a great workshop. Even though it was just an afternoon it shed light on what has been happening for me this entire year. Such a gift you are! ” ~ Michelle M.
“Add “motivational speaker” to the already impressive array of hats that miss Doherty wears. I just attended her Sunday class on “How to get rid of negative thoughts and patterns” and have instantly noticed a boost in my energy, outlook and general satisfaction with life. I only wish the sessions were longer and had more interaction between classmates. Next up: Tools for Transformation. If I am a better yoga practitioner and person at the end of this year, Nicole will surely be a huge part of it.” ~ Michi V.
“I have been taking private yoga as well as group yoga from Nicole for a couple of years and she is a truly gifted teacher. Her warm approach and extensive knowledge of anatomy make taking class with Nicole not only relaxing but beneficial for our tired, tight bodies. Most recently I attended a workshop called Empower Yourself to Transform with Nicole. The information she gave us was very helpful and pertinent to anyone’s yoga practice. The fun style in which the workshop was held makes it accessible for any level yoga student from the beginner to the seasoned yogi.” ~ Roxanne G
“Thanks sssooooooo much for the workshop. I truly enjoyed it. I’ve already had 3 opportunities to apply what we learned about the power of words! It is amazing how sharing that with 3 different friends was so inspiring. I didn’t really intend that to happen. I was just going to start applying it for myself. But, Sunday evening a friend called and said something like, “Wouldn’t it be nice if all I had to do is (blah blah blah?)” And, I just said, “OMG, I have to share what I just learned in this workshop today!” And, we just had a great laugh. Then, early this morning, a friend started texting me from NYC about how horrible her life was going to be as soon as she moved and how she wasn’t looking forward to it. And, of course, I immediately sent her the video via email and started explaining the power of words and what I’d learned. Then, this afternoon, I was talking to a friend about her career….same thing! So, I just wanted to share with you the impact you made on my life this week and thank you again for an amazing yoga class. I look forward to another one soon.” ~ Lisa H
