‘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.

I am so grateful to bring you more beach toning videos from around the world! Having touched the sands of Sitges, Spain, Brighton Beach, England, Tofino, Canada and now Maui and Oahu, Hawaii, I can say the tides and waves of the oceans speak to me just the same. “Here, let me cleanse your soul, allow me to wash away your pain. Let me fill you with healing waters that remind you of who you are-a beacon of light.”
Wherever you are this Holiday season, allow the waters to heal you. Say a prayer for Pachamama and her children. I pray for clean air, clean water, clean food…and to allow us to live in peace and harmony. I set this intention and hold a high vibration for the blessings of this earth to continue.
And so it is … Amen.
Love to you all,

Hello, Blessed Tribe! While in Puerto De Andraitx, Spain, I found the most amazing Pharaoh in the mountain. Feel the ancient energy and tune into how stones can help you release all that no longer serves you. I always say, “Blow it in the stone” — doing this can clear and balance your chakras. Try it sometime when you’re feeling uptight and see if you feel a difference!
