Education Specialist, health coach, and Author.

I work with aspects of the teachings I have learned: from Andean shamanic and cosmology, to health, nutrition and education. In the end, it is very simple, and elegant. That is definitely an aspect I learned from the Andean teachings. Everything is energy. Energy must flow. Like water, when it does not flow, it stagnates and is not healthy. These techniques help your life to flow.

I have been initiated into many of the ancient lineages and learned ceremonies, rites of passage and healing techniques. Mostly, I learned a lot about a cosmology that is vastly different than Western belief systems. This is a HUGE distinction and very powerful in creating change and bringing healing. I have worked as a healer and done workshops and taught some of these aspects – passing the teachings on.

The Importance of Sulphur for the Alzheimer Brain and Health

What is the significance of Sulphur in Preventing and Reversing Alzheimers? As I talked about in my earlier post on sulphur… a quick recap: Sulphur is the 6th most abundant substance on the planet, and the 3rd most abundant mineral in the body. Traditional diets naturally contained a lot of sulphur. Plants and vegetables (and…

Shamanic Simplicity: Integrity and Awareness, and Horses

My journey as a medicine person has come to a place where most things come down to 2 very simplistic foundations: awareness and integrity.  Also, energy-in, energy-out.. Awareness applies to everything: that we operate on many levels, and we need to become aware of what we transmit and receive on all of them. Physical level–…

Resolutions: Sour Milk, Getting Hugs, Changing the World

Okay- this is somewhat of a check-in for myself.. an update on progress and accountability time. 🙂 I had a couple of new years resolutions.  the first was more exercise.. at which I have not jumped into.  I did go for a walk. but my ankle started to throb within the first mile.  I did…

Chaga: Preparation Instructions and Recipe for Chaga Chai

Chaga is a polypore, meaning it does not have gilles. In fact, technically it is not-quite a mushroom.  My understanding is that chaga is clustered mycelium- which is probably why it is so much more potent than the actual medicinal mushrooms.  Regardless, Chaga forms very dense hard woody clumps, or nodules on the sides of…

Education: A Failed-State

I was just chatting about the educational system.  Someone noted that this is not anything new– the failed-state of education.  It was failed a long time ago.. yep! Absolutely! it is like people in a house that should be condemned, moving the furniture around.. thinking that will improve circumstances.. and then they serve tea and…

Love-Fear, Beliefs and Grades of Duality in the Universe

I had an interesting discussion about dualties and the nature of love-fear, in a dualistic universe: the initial premise was that: Everything is Love, or its absence: fear. If you are holding Love, you cannot hold or come from a place of Fear. And if you are in a place of Fear, you cannot come…

Grounding: Physical and Energetic Benefits of Connecting to Nature

I was just reading an interesting article about some of the physical benefits, or rather physiological benefits of grounding. It talked about the importance and benefits of going barefoot. Also,  I remember in my herbal training, we talked a good bit about how the feet absorb minerals from the ground and grass.  That’s a pretty…

Selecting a New Educational Model: Ego-Holistic

If you are reading this, chances are you get exactly how broken the current public education model is.  Understand that when I ask- who will fix the broken system.. I never meant.. fix the public school system.  I meant, literally- how we educate our children.  I don’t know that there is any fixing the good…

Distinctions and Nuances of the Subtle / Cosmic Healing Energies

There are differences in the kinds of energy things possess at the physical level.  For example- the energy from eating meat is a heavy denser energy.  This is why many of the spiritual practices abstain from eating meat.  My teachers used to advise against eating meat or heavy meals, before doing journey work, meditation and…
