This collective is your kinship, your space to be urged into growth and expansion, and welcomes all of you; past, present and future.

This is a community. A tribe.
A perfect blend of Original Medicine.

The deepest way to cultivate healing here is by immersing yourself in all of the Original Medicine that is on offer.
There is much.
We seek balance, so we learn to weave with our wisdom. One on One in mentorship,
with Groups in classes, n healing Circles, at Workshops. Each experience is a thread in our greater tapestry of wholeness.
We heal together, in layers and in many, many ways. And the ways to be met and held in this collective are numerous.
It is true that others may have the Medicine we need.
So be brave.
Bring your Original Medicine.
We want to hear you, see you,
witness you, and love you
for who you are.
Who we are and the path we walk:
the journey towards vision, creation, purpose, + fulfillment
through spaces for deep connection, unconditional acceptance
& a powerful cultivation of wisdom
Steeping ourselves in ancient wisdom and shamanic practices, we are a collective + collection of voices,
unique beautiful and strong.
united to create a chorus of hallelujahs and affirmations as we walk our path together and as individuals
That lit up feeling, the internal fire. That is what we find when we collect and restore all parts of ourselves. There is always something to be discovered, and every situation can be our greatest teacher, whenever we ask what we can learn. When we seek to retrieve and re-member, we find and recover. And as our wisdom of who we truly are grows, so does the fire that drives us towards our fullest expression and our soul purpose.
wise ones, Way finders, wanderers, explorers, curious souls
If you are looking for a place of belonging in a loving, connected, supportive, kindred spirit tribe,
it's here, with us.
We walk with our Higher Selves, as well as our teachers and guides who are here in love for our mission. We will develop rich language to name and describe the world of our feelings, emotions, past, present + future experiences, and we will come to understand our Selves and the connectedness to our outer reality. In this way, we return to who we really are and honor ourselves all the while as being strong, beautiful, unique + wise.
ROOTS IN NOURISHING SOIL
strong, healthy roots, cultivated and built upon to hold up and support all parts to this whole collective
MAKING COMMITMENTS FROM A HEART -LED & SOUL GUIDED VOICE AND SHOWING UP TO HONOR THEM FULLLY
ALIGNMENT THAT IS STEEPED IN THE VOICE OF SPIRIT THAT ALLOWS ALL TO GROW TALLER AND FULLER, NOURISHED IN TRUTH & DEEP WISDOM
WILLINGNESS TO BE THE TEACHER AND THE STUDENT, THE MIRROR AND THE MIRRORED. CURIOSITY IS THE GATEWAY TO OPENNESS, SPACIOUSNESS AND GETS US OUT OF OUR OWN WAY
WE EACH BELONGS TO OURSELVES, AND WE HONOR EACH BEING AS SOVEREIGN. THE INVITATION IS ALWAYS: TAKE WHAT RESONATES AND LEAVE THE REST FOR NOW
THERE IS A GREAT CONNECTOR IN EACH OF US. WE CAN HONOR THIS CALLING BY TAKING PART IN SPACES CREATED TO OFFER DEEP AUTHENTIC CONNECTION TO SELF & OTHERS
WE CAN HOLD THE BLIEF IN THE POWER OF WORDS AND THE HEALING PRACTICE OF STORYTELLING. FOR THIS REASON, JOURNALING IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED FOR ALL PROGRAMS.
work for kindred spirits committed to their journey of awakening + re-membering

UNITY IN EMBODIMENT
I am a healer healing from the power of her Self, a teacher teaching from the knowledge and wisdom of her Self, a Visionary receiving inspired vision from her Self, and a Warrioress standing tall in her Self.
On this path, we walk together. That is what RE-MEMBERING OUR ORIGINAL MEDICINE uncovers--the ability to find true belonging and fulfillment within programs, creations, visions + with people that speak to us, call to us, from within.
For me, the striking within became so clear, so loud, that I had to get clear. Get clear on my boundaries and what I was allowing, on my relationships and what I desired to surround me, on my vision for my world and what I wanted to experience and feel in this life, on my karma and old persistent patterns of beliefs, thoughts, habits and choices. On what it means to belong to myself.
WHO I AM + WHAT I DO
I work one on one and within groups, bringing all of who I am and what I know, so that together we can create a container of wise counsel
I honor the archetypal energy of the ancient shaman, and I live and teach these practices and Earthkeeping traditions.
Writer + Speaker
of the human experience. I speak from mySelf, knowing that what I have to say resonates + weaves with a greater collective of other hearts and souls.

CO-CREATOR IN YOU.
WELCOME, WISE ONE
I invite you to get a feel for who I am and what this work could mean for you at a free introductory meeting. All that is required is your curiosity.
Come see my heart.
MY STORY, MY VISION
I have walked through most of my life without feeling that I truly belong anywhere. I have wandered through many different version of home, and danced as well as dragged myself through different phases of becoming myself. I built this collective because I know there are others like me, who are seeking mirrors for their sovereignty and their journey, who are looking for that chosen family, the tribe who will love them and celebrate the shared experience. I know our voices want to be heard and shared. We all have a wise one within, who is guiding us to what we need in order to re-member the unique medicine essences that each of us embody by being in our truth.
I have spent the last 10+ years learning symbols and studying patterns. It is a way of relating and understanding that unfolds in layers and depth over time. I have spent a lifetime relating to people, writing about my experience, and telling stories. I studied psychology and sociology within the framework of language and linguistics as well as symbolism and motifs during my time at university. I have gained real-life practice in this knowledge, converting it to embodied wisdom ever since. I know I can do what I say I can do. And you will know this, too, if you decide to meet me in any one of the containers on offer.
I am here to move with you through dissonance and darkness, and dance with you in the aha moments and the eternal light. In these spaces of reckoning, I will use all of me to hold the container and you in sacred spaciousness.
I walk a shamanic path and honor this sacred way of re-membering and retrieving wisdom through the experience of Spirit in all ways. To me, all life is worthy. All voices are beautiful. All stories must be heard. We are not here to be separate. We are here to come together. And the mission I am fulfilling through this collective seeks to unite what was once divided and bring the medicine of our voices and truths into a strong and healing chorus of hallelujahs.
I use a lot of metaphor and archetypal descriptions in my teachings. I show this in the ways I show up for this work:
I am a support staff to lean upon
I am a sacred mirror to show you your greatness
I am a loving witness to see you and hear you fully
I am a steadfast friend and mentor to encourage you and meet you wherever you are
I am a devoted heart-guide to speak to you in a loving voice with words and language you can understand
I know that writing is a powerful way to capture stories as well as internal narratives, aha moments and breakthroughs. So much of who we think we are and who we truly are shows up on the page. That is why journaling and writing is highly encouraged in every program I lead.
I am in constant evolution with myself and within the realm of universal knowledge. I am currently undertaking studies within a universal mysteries school, and am an active member of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
