We are currently working on our new book, Creating
From the Heart of the Universe: Energy, Fields, and Our Future, and will return to a fuller schedule in late 2014!
Dec. 22, 2013
Winter Solstice 12/22 Despacho and Fire Ceremony Noon to 5:30 PM
On the cusp of winter and the returning light, we will co-create an offering of what no longer serves
us, focusing especially on releasing the energies of grief and loss. This will help us open ourselves to the lighter energy
that will carry us forward in these times of transition.
At the moment the fire accepts our offering, we will allow ourselves to connect
with All-that-Is. We will fill ourselves then with the lighter energy that arises for us.
When we engage fully in this traditional Andean ceremony, the shifts reverberate
vibrationally in our bodies and cells, and change us somatically, emotionally, and spiritually.
We will gather at my home in Sonoma at noon on Sunday, Dec. 22. We will feed the power of the despacho
with our personal and communal intentions, receive its sweet blessing, and offer it to the fire, sending our intentions and
prayers out to the cosmos in the smoke of transmutation. Afterwards, well share a potluck meal and revel in the beauty surrounding
us, finishing about 5:30 PM.
A despacho transmutes energy. Our despacho uses traditional Andean form, ingredients,and
intent, combined with Eagle-of-the-North practices for group engagement, connection, and focus. Creating this ceremony in
reciprocity is a wonderful way of focusing intent, strengthening connections, giving back to the Earth and spirits, and being
together. At summer solstice we made aGratitude despacho; now we continue our process by releasing the grief and loss that
weigh us down. This is a gift to the universe, just as releasing any heavy energy is a gift.
No prior experience necessary (and if you have it, bring it!)
Bring: Your intent to release personal and world grief and loss. Ancestral soil if
you have some. A potluck dish to share.Layers for warmth, as we will have an outside fire. Your donation for land preservation,
which will go to Sonoma Land Trust.
Note:It is important for your completion that you stay for the fire ceremony.
Seeds for Earthkeepers: the Nine Initiations of Munay-Ki
You are invited to receive the profound energetic transmissions of Munay-Ki over the course
of nine months in 2014. The transmissions are portals to becoming beings of wisdom and power who accept stewardship for all
Our time together will offer you an immersion in the mystical side of Andean cosmology.
We'll explore the use of intent, alchemy, reciprocity, and energy, along with oral wisdom teachings, healing practices, and
tools for transformation, as we nurture these "seeds of homo luminous" given to us by the Q'ero/Inca and other peoples of
the Andes. We will also have time to connect deeply with and learn from nature as indigenous people do the world over.
The intent of these transmissions is to help you see with heart, heal our earth, and increase
your energy for reconnecting to the web of living energy in these prophesied times of great change and opportunity.
We'll meet in our Medicine Wheel on Sonoma Mountain, on the fourth Sunday of each month,
from January to September 2014, beginning at 11 AM each day, and lasting 4-6 hours. Suggested donation each meeting, sliding
sale, $65 to $85. Email
If you wish only to receive the rites, and not the surrounding teachings, there
are a number of options in the Bay Area. If you wish to begin or deepen your connection with the indigenous Andean worldview
and cosmology, this nine-month series will fully support that. Meg has been studying, practicing, and deepening her heart
connection with the Q'ero for over 20 years.
Classes are a way to shift perceptions and learn tools that you can use
for your own development, healing, and "growing your seeds" of consciousness. My role is to midwife your expanded awareness,
your essence, your whole soul, and your luminous energy body, helping you move into vibrational alignment with your highest
self. I believe that our understanding of everything is deepened and enriched with embodied, experiential learning.
Ongoing Shamanic Groups
Last Wed. of each month
Shamanic Journey and Transfiguration Circle
This group combines shamanic journeying for personal and "world work" issues with the practice
of Transfiguration. We meet the last Wednesday of each month.
You need to know how to journey and have a desire to learn more to join. We
work and play with various methods of journeying, and explore how to formulate questions. I teach about transfiguration and
related Medicine for the Earth practices to transmute toxins inside and out, as taught by Sandra Ingerman, one of my long-time
to 9PM, last Wednesday of each month.
