Semillas (Say-mi-yas) is a 5-week journey
of self-awareness and personal transformation.
Planting the Seeds to create a life you love.
You will totally transform the way you look at your life experiences.
Experience the interconnectedness of life,
nature and yourself to form the basis of a grounded spiritual practice.
You will learn how to nourish your body and awaken your mind using herbal plant medicines.
How to open your heart to self-love and connection (inner peace) with Cacao.
Become the visionary, someone who consciously and powerfully creates their own reality.
Through the art and ritual of ceremony, you will find
your truth, and embody the sacred wisdom teachings of the Medicine Wheel that lead to a life of joy, freedom from the past, and a deep connection to your soul (nature).
5 years ago, my life was in a totally different place.
My relationships were in turmoil, my career dreams were shattered and my health and sense of self had deteriorated. I had what I thought was a strong spiritual practice but when my ‘wake-up call’ from the universe showed up a few months short of my 40th birthday, my clean diet, yoga practice, sporadic meditation practice and all the spiritual knowledge I had gained from the countless spiritual books I had read, were helpful and full of feel-good affirmations, but they were not quite enough to pull me out of the sinking hole that I was in.
I had ‘spiritual knowledge’ , but not an embodied living practice. Big difference!
During this time I received certifications in:
Shamanic Energy Medicine, Cacao Ceremony Facilitation, Shamanic Reiki,
Yoga Teacher Training, Wild Women Circle Leadership and Oracle Card School.
I am honored to have learned from Cacao and Tobacco Medicine Carriers, from Guatemala
and have received Rites of Passage from Quero Peruvian Shamans.
As I sat around the fire with Peruvian Maestros, I witnessed the earth-based practices
of the Quero (descendants of the Incas), how to honor and come into a right relationship with the earth
and with the elements of nature. I am blessed to have learned first hand, from indigenous grandmothers how to use plant medicines to heal our bodies and to interpret our dreams.
I truly believe that each one of these journeys was gifted to me,
as I let go of everything that I thought I knew and instead opened up to the mystery.
Trusting that this would all lead to the evolution of my soul, and it did!
One cold and starry night in the Ausangate Mountains when I couldn't sleep,
I received a message to "Heal my Soul with Plants".
By this time, I knew that when spirit calls you must answer, so I did,
and although the journey wasn't easy, I continued to be led with grace on my healing journey.
Part of this sacred contract was to take this knowledge and to lead others on their path to health and healing.
So here I am today ready to lead, to share and to inspire.
This may not be everyone's calling, direction or path to healing, however, what I do know, is that we all have a story and disempowering things we tell ourselves are true.
We are here to awaken to love, to our own truth, our own wisdom and authentic self and that requires life experiences where we get to face all aspects of our humanity.
After integration of this work, I am ready to help those who feel the calling, who are tired of living an unfulfilled life, and who are ready to plant the Seeds of change, to learn, to grow and to heal.
TRUST THE JOURNEY, YOU ARE EXACTLY WHERE YOU NEED TO BE.
Journey through the medicine wheel, the path of transformation,
turning our wounds into sources of power.
semillas = seeds
Semillas is the Spanish word for Seeds.
I chose Semillas as the name for my program as a powerful reminder that the thoughts we think act as seeds and become rooted and planted in our mind.
These Semillas grow into our beliefs, our words, our actions
and the circumstances and events that show up in our lives.
We must tend to our garden, pull out the weeds by the roots, nurture and feed the soil of our mind with new and inspired thoughts and plant the seeds of change that will grow into a variety of colorful
and beautiful experiences that we get to call our life.
We will all be called on our own personal Hero’s or Warrior Goddess journey in one or several points in our lives,
many of us are in the middle of one right now, and my hope is that I can throw you a 'vine' of rescue, extend a helping hand and to open your heart to assist you in finding your own medicine, your own gifts,
innate wisdom, and ultimate healing.
Knowing how to bring yourself back into balance when ‘life happens’.
Finding your own medicine, discovering your truth and having the tools to heal yourself.
Being able to bring ancient wisdom to today’s modern world to create balance and receive clarity and direction.
Feeling connected to nature and living in right relationship to spirit and the earth.
Being open to receiving signs from nature and trusting the wisdom of the universe.
Creating a deep connection with the spirit of Cacao as she gently opens and heals your heart.
With a grounded spiritual practice that balances your meditation, Yoga or fitness practice
that allows you to live and experience life fully in your body aligned with your heart and mind.
Learning how to heal your soul with plants as medicine and teachers.
Trusting the guidance of spirit knowing that you are never alone, guided, protected and loved.
So grounded and spiritually aligned’ and not thrown off by the cycles of the moon, mercury in retrograde or the latest relationship encounter and what to do when this happens.
Becoming a steward of the earth, feeding her life force and your own in return.
Having a team of spiritual allies and guides to call on for clarity and guidance.
Sitting in Ceremony with like minds on an epic journey to transform, creating community,
support and the network of powerful tribe.
Free from overwhelm with all the rituals, moon circles, affirmations, visualizations,
books to read, mental activities and daily tasks. Simplify!
Using the ancient spiritual practices of the medicine men/women
and the wisdom keepers, to guide you in your own life.
We will begin our journey with a Cacao Ceremony setting our intentions,
planting the Seeds of change
before moving to our first direction of the Medicinal Wheel ~The South.
For each week and each direction of the Medicine Wheel (South, West, North & East),
you will receive a special gift.
A tool for transformation that will become an integral part of the ‘Medicine';
for your healing journey. Each item will support, ground and uplift you on your way and for life!
LAS SEMILLAS | THE SEEDS
Each week is individual and builds upon and flows into the next until you are standing back in the center of your life,
in the flow with a clear direction and purpose.
The comprehensive journey will give you full support in helping you to move through what’s holding you back
while being supported by the forces of nature.
We will look at our bodies as the mirrors of the beliefs and agreements we hold in heart and our soul
and move towards releasing them to reveal a new body that ages, heals and transforms differently.
You will embody the principle that healing happens at the level of energy not the level of our stories.
We sit with them to understand and digest, but then we give them to the earth,
the great mother who will mulch and grow beauty and wisdom for us.
Recognize the intangible forces, your personal energetic tribe of supporters that you already have around you,
plus the community of our tribe that each week will hold you in sacred space
and see you for the Sage that you are - you are not alone.
You will learn to see the aliveness in all things and recognize the sacred in everything
as you step into awareness and make peace with your past.
You will learn how to bring balance, healing, and illumination to yourself and your loved ones.
You will experience the power and transformative benefits of community
and ceremony and becoming a steward of the planet.
