Shamanic journeying is a fantastic, experiential way of learning, and I love to share it. Join us this
spring to explore it for yourself!
Using the shamanic journey to meet up with our helping spirits, we will explore altered states of awareness
to find answers to difficult personal questions and mobilize energy for reaching goals in everyday life. You will learn how
to use the shamanic journey for insight, vision, and healing. You will discover the basic ideas and techniques of cross-cultural
You will be initiated into the practice of shamanic journeying accompanied by live drumming. You will
learn to see with your heart, and access timeless wisdom known by our ancestors. You will be guided to find your own power
animals and teachers, and be introduced to the practice of direct revelation. You will explore how shamanism can be applied
in your life to help yourself, others, and the planet come into balance.

Gratitude Despacho on Solstice, 6/23 in Sonoma!
One of my students asked recently if I was planning any despachos this year. What came to me
right away was gathering together with our gratitude--for our connections, health, lives, partners, challenges, and so on--and
offering our collective appreciation to the earth at the Solstice.
Creating this ceremony in reciprocity is a wonderful way of focusing intent, strengthening connections,
giving back to the Earth and spirits, and being together.
We start with guidance I have been given on design and contents, then create our offering together.
No prior experience is required, just a desire to experience this ancient form of ceremonial offering from the Andes.
We will gather in our Medicine Wheel, on private land at the base of Sonoma Mountain at 1:00
PM on Sunday, June 23. We will feed the power of the despacho with our personal and communal intentions, receive
its sweet blessing, and offer it to the fire, sending our intentions and prayers out to the cosmos in the smoke of transmutation.
Afterwards, well share a potluck meal and revel in the beauty surrounding us, finishing about 7 PM.
For the despacho, bring one small, burnable item that is your gratitude, your personal intent, food
to share, a chair if you need one, and water. Well be outside the whole day; dress appropriately for sun and wind.
Inspire your vision and empower your whole being as you find your spirit path in these challenging times!
We work with three interrelated perspectives: Andean (Q'ero/Inca) cosmovision, core shamanism, and Medicine
for the Earth. During your apprenticeship, you will experientially develop your abilities in the realms of healing, ceremony,
Munay-Ki, spiritual empowerment, and connecting with the earth.
Our focus is on creating a whole, integrated way of being and seeing in the world shamanically. As we
deepen and expand the three layers of knowing and wisdom (physical, spiritual, energetic), it becomes possible to connect,
repair, and reweave the grids and webs of life that support us all. As we shift our consciousness we are better able to greet
world changes with equanimity and power.
The sixth annual Sacred Earth Shamanic Apprenticeship program will meet a total of 20 days in nature,
a combination of time in Sonoma and on the sacred mountains around the Bay Area. Begins Jan. 2014.
Classes are a way to shift perceptions and learn tools that you can use
for your own development, healing, and "growing your seeds" of consciousness. My role is to midwife your expanded awareness,
your essence, your whole soul, and your luminous energy body, helping you move into vibrational alignment with your highest
self. I believe that our understanding of everything is deepened and enriched with embodied, experiential learning.
Ongoing Shamanic Groups
Last Wed. of each month
Shamanic Journey and Transfiguration Circle
This group combines shamanic journeying for personal and "world work" issues with the practice
of Transfiguration. We meet the last Wednesday of each month.
You need to know how to journey and have a desire to learn more to join. We
work and play with various methods of journeying, and explore how to formulate questions. I teach about transfiguration and
related Medicine for the Earth practices to transmute toxins inside and out, as taught by Sandra Ingerman, one of my long-time
to 9PM, last Wednesday of each month.
