Offerings from the Heart
Throughout my spiritual explorations and geographical adventures, I’ve been exposed to many modalities of holistic healing. From struggling to maintain a regular meditation practice many years ago to now hosting shamanic Ayahuasca retreats with a medicine family in Peru, my offerings from the heart have been cultivated over years of experience. I pull in parts of the web I’ve cast through learning from different indigenous cultures around the world to offer a unique blend of ceremonies and healing techniques. From basic yoga instruction to guidance into alternate dimensions, there is something for everyone on their healing journey.
I invite you to explore this page to find what resonates with you.
Indigenous Healing Modalities from the Amazon Rainforest
Sacred Plant Ceremony
In many indigenous belief systems, all plants have spirits. When we understand and work with the collective consciousness of these plants in shamanic ceremony, we are able to unlock and connect with their healing gifts to us. The sacred plants ceremonies that I offer are specifically with Rapéh (pronounced ha-pay) and Sananga.
Rapéh is a finely ground mixture of tobacco, ash, and other plants, blown up the nasal cavities through a pipe. The effects are immediately felt in the head and the sitter is brought fully to the present moment, clearing thoughts and mind chatter as the medicine drops down into the body, inducing a calming, clearing, grounding sensation and enabling the receiver to enter a beautiful, thoughtless meditation process. Different blends of Rapéh are used for differing intentions and have various healing properties, depending on the plants used.
Sananga is an extract made from the roots and bark of a shrub in the Amazon Basin. Administered in the form of eyedrops, They are beneficial for moving stagnant energy, strengthening intuition and bringing peace + focus to the mind.
Both of these medicines have great potential to bring up and clear many mental, emotional, physical and spiritual blockages, returning us home to a place of peace, clarity and stillness within.
Kambo (Frog) Medicine ceremony
Kambo is the name given to the traditional Shamanic cleanse that is used to strengthen and heal mind, body and spirit. The medicine is a secretion from the frog Phyllomedusa bicolor or “Giant Monkey Frog,” and is beneficial in treating a variety of illnesses from depression and anxiety to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Kambo is one of the strongest, most natural ways to reset and fortify the body’s ability to heal itself.
I began working with frog medicine in the mountains of Peru in 2016. Since then I have maintained a deep healing relationship with the medicine in the Peruvian territories of the Amazon and Sacred Valley. In April 2018, the frog came to me, first in ceremony, then followed by dreams, signs and spirit, asking me to be a steward of Kambo Medicine. Since then I have participated multiple facilitator trainings and intensives. In September 2018, I took on five days of water-fasting and frog medicine in the forest at the Root Chakra of the Earth, Mount Shasta. There, having only the Spirit of Frog Medicine in the body, the gate for direct communication was opened and I became a humble servant of his medicine.
The spirit of Kambo continues to come to me in Shamanic Ceremony, dreams, meditations and visions, thus becoming one of my clearest and most consistent Spirit Allies, through which I am able to serve his medicine.
Plant Medicine Retreat
Along with individual Plant and Frog Medicine Ceremonies, we also offer week-long retreats, combining these medicines and a series of three ceremonies for an opportunity to dive deeper into yourself, allowing a more profound study and healing of physical, mental, and emotional blockages. Our retreats focus specifically on Ayahuasca, a brew of Chakruna leaves and the Ayahuasca vine mixed together and drank in sacred ceremony.
Ayahuasca works on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, to develop consciousness of our shadow selves and move through blockages preventing us from living with an open heart and creating the reality we truly see for ourselves.
This profound, visionary medicine scans the layers of the psyche and addresses the thoughts, actions, and patterns in our lives to help move our lingering toxic energies that don’t serve.
After Ayahuasca ceremonies you’ll feel lighter, clearer and more aligned. You’ll also feel very relieved from the energy release that accompanies healing unprocessed events, emotions or experiences.
