What is Shamanism?


This Tuesday we will begin the 3-day Shamanism Global Summit

I have been working on this project for the past 3 months and am excited to see it come to fruition. In addition to the inspiring interviews of amazing shamanic luminaries from around the world, you can download my new book, Living a Shamanic Way of Life: A Path of Direct Revelation- both free of charge.


Shamanism teaches us that everything that exists is alive and has a spirit. Shamans speak of a web of life that connects all of life and the spirit that lives in all things. Everything on earth is interconnected and any belief that we are separate from other life forms including the earth, stars, wind, etc is purely an illusion. And it is the shaman's role in the community to keep harmony and balance between humankind and the forces of nature.
- Sandra Ingerman

Center for Shamanic Studies

JP Tindell, myself and other shamanic practitioners have started a new collective based on our vision and values around how an Inter-Being "WE" organization should operate and run to reflect the next stage of evolutionary consciousness. We will be making many new offerings with interview, articles, workshops, shamanic coaching and mentoring and much more. Please check it out and make any suggestions for programs, interviews and information you would like to have included in our offering. This site is for you. Enjoy!

Shamanic Coaching and Guidance

I wanted remind those of you who don't know that I have started up my coaching and mentoring programs again. My primary focus is on providing shamanic guidance, to organizations and individuals. At this time in our evolution I feel it is of paramount importance to transcend our beliefs in separation and access the wisdom of spirit that lives in each and every one of us. I offer a sliding payment scale based on value received and financial situation. Please give a call or email if you interested in any of the following: 

* Power Animal & Spirit Guide Access
* Soul Remembering & Retrieval
* Personal & Organizational Change
* Spiritual Guidance & Journey work
* Shamanic Teaching & Mentoring
* PTSD and Trama Relief

Organizational Shamanism
I am currently writing a book that integrates my shamanic practices  with three decades of Organizational Development work. Organizational Shamanism (OS) is the practice and application of ancient shamanic techniques to solve contemporary organizational and community challenges. It is a whole systems approach to gathering information that can help us to revitalize and energize the spirit of our organizations and tap into new levels of creativity, intuition and wisdom not available with contemporary perception. OS focuses on transforming inner states of consciousness to bring about outer change, and taps into a creative potential beyond limiting beliefs and assumptions. 
I am looking for organizations that are interested in trying these new approaches to solving organizational issues. If you and your organization or any one you know are open to applying this pioneering work in your company to bring about organizational change please give me a call. Or email 530.277.0937 or

 Reclaiming the Power of Ecstasy as a Feminine Mystic 

With Mirabai Starr


Embracing the Divine as a lover or the Beloved Other is a time-honored spiritual path, one that many of history's greatest female mystics have walked with radiant grace.  

Reserve your complimentary space, here:

Seeing the Divine in the eyes of another and relating to that other with real devotion infuses your being erotic delight, and carries you into realms of ecstasy difficult to express in words.


Mirabai Starr is committed to sharing this profound experience of divine devotion of the feminine mystical path and the illumined secrets of the great female mystics, who can show you how to live in an exalted state - while you're also engaging in effective action in the world.


During this inspiring hour, you'll learn:

  • How to say "yes" to longing as your pathway to the Divine
  • To claim the beauty of spiritual desire and let it move, motivate and transform you
  • How to become more available to moments of ecstasy in your daily life

I invite you to experience a powerful reclamation of the feminine path that will support you in feeling deeply fulfilled, spiritually nourished and ecstatically alive.

It's FREE to attend, but you'll need to register here:


Book of the Month

Sound Shifting: Your Personal Guide 


to Healing with Sound

by Tryshe Dhevney

 This book is a wonderful introduction into the power of using sound for healing. Tryshe Dhevney's insights, teaching and simple exercises gives the reader an immediate entry into this ancient world of healing. Her gift with sound and voice began first with her personal experience of healing through toning - an authentic initiation and calling into mastery of this healing art. I enthusiastically recommend "SOUNDShifting" and Tryshe Dhevney's work to anyone with an interest in sound, healing, or a new way of experiencing their relationship with their body.

Recording by Tryshe Dhevney

Spirit of the Ancients, In this beautiful heart opening recording Tryshe immerses us in a new soundscape of gemstone-infused crystal bowls, selected to evoke "expanded inner space and illumination." Recorded in a sacred open-mouthed New Mexico cave with unique sound and energy-gathering qualities, these tracks merge the subtle presence of wind and birdsong with therapeutically tuned tones to support our natural bio-frequencies.

Praise For The Mother

By Robert Moss

I am walking on the Mother

I am sailing on her skin

I become her child and lover

from the outside enter in

I will praise the sky above her

I will praise her in the deep

I am dreaming of the Mother

she awakens me from sleep

Step lightly on the Mother

and let her grace unfold

Praise and serve the Mother

and re-enchant the world

Praise and serve the Mother

and re-enchant the world.
