‘Ancestral Knowledge lives within’ is a deep card. When I came to Pisaq, Peru for the first time in 2007, I knew I had come here before. While in a Despacho ceremony, I saw myself as a young girl climbing barefoot through the hills. Then my little brother (who in this life is my older sister) and I were in a cave and I knew we had no parents, and that I must take care of her. Then the Condor came and the vision ended. As many of you know, I pride myself on being a ‘feeler healer’ and do not usually “See”. This experience has left me with deep GRATITUDE for my Ancestral knowledge and past life experiences.
A Journey of Transformation —
As seen in Radiance Magazine July/Aug 2017
I was in no way prepared for the awakening that was about to occur…
It was the summer of 2007. My mother passed away the year before and her death devastated me. I was in fear around finances and had yet to land a job in the field I was working so hard towards.
The last thing I felt I should be doing was running off to Peru on a spiritual journey.
But I had such a profound healing experience with the amazing Shaman from Chile, Marcella Lobos, that when she suggested I go with the Four Winds Society, I tuned in and listened.
When we landed in Cusco, the music that came on the plane was my mother’s favorite song by the artist Enya and I knew then that I had her blessing.
The moment I stepped upon the land I could feel a peaceful vibration. The air was clean and crisp, the people smiling and friendly. I felt as though I had gone back in time, and in a way I had.
We all got on a big bus and headed to the Sacred Valley. As we passed the snowcapped mountains (called the Apus) I could feel their energy and strength in every fiber of my being. We learned about the medicine men and women of the Andes, the Q’ero. I heard the word Ayni for the first time and the idea of reciprocity as a Universal law. I understood being open to give and receive is at the core of their teachings.
Although I had not yet fully claimed my role as Shaman I could feel the call begin to rise and was honored to be answering.
When I came home from that trip to Peru my life unfolded in unimaginable ways. Insecurities that had once plagued me began to disappear. I was finally connecting to my spirit guides and trusting my intuition like never before.
Two years later, I was guided by spirit to open my home as the Orange County Healing Center. I began leading groups to the sacred sites of Peru and England. On New Year’s Eve 2009, I lead a group to Peru to anchor in the masculine and feminine energies. While the Peruvians were dancing in the streets we headed up to the Temple of the Moon in the pouring rain to install medicine rites under the stars. It was magical and I feel honored to have been there.
I want to take this opportunity to personally invite you to join me on my next spiritual pilgrimage to the Sacred Valley of Peru, October 12-21, 2017. Each day will be filled with deep connection and wisdom teachings.
This is a journey of awakening, a journey to your soul.

A lot can happen with an experienced shaman in five days during the transformational summer solstice, especially when you’re sitting on powerful ley lines in an enchanted land…
If you are like me you are what I call a “feeler healer”. Since we can feel what is going on with our loved ones and the planet, this can affect our mood. Many of us are experiencing this right now. Some great tips are to stay in the moment, enjoy what’s right in front of us and stay grateful. If we stop for a moment and live our life to the fullest we will be less likely to get caught up in the emotion that is running our planet.
Let us learn together how to hold space for our planet. You may ask yourself, what does it mean to hold space? I look at it like a large expansion of our beings to encompass and support that which we are holding space for.
See yourself in a golden bubble and open your heart, think of stability and support, imagine you are surrounded by your guides, and tune into your inner universal wisdom, breath into that space. Then imagine the expansion happening, send your golden light to any place on the planet you feel your support is most needed. This is the way we will learn to connect and co-create together!
