Shaman Birthday Offerings – March 25 – 5:30-9:30 pm

It has been customary for me to offer gifts, services or the like to the community on my birthday as an appreciation for the life that I live and lead. This year I will continue the tradition offering some of the Munay-ki rites and passages to anyone who wishes to receive them.

I am currently taking bookings for this but you should be aware that it will be an open studio sort of afternoon/evening so that others can sit in the ceremonial space and bear witness. It is always so beautiful to do it this way and it is lovely to have others hold wonderful space for you.

If you would like to receive one or a few of these, please let me know and I will add you the day’s event line-up as it fills up. The final schedule will be determined within a week to the date, as it depends on the amount interest in each ceremony to determine proper set up and flow.

Once the maximum number of participants and witnesses has been reached, I will close registration.

I look forward to this lovely opportunity and I know the people who are intended to be there will register for this offering. Please choose from the following:

Healer’s Rite
Connects you to a lineage of luminous healers from the past to assist you in your personal transformation, awakening the healing power so that everyone you touch is blessed. We access tremendous spiritual assistance; ancient healers who help heal the wounds of the past and of our ancestors.

Bands of Power and Protection
Five energy belts are woven into your luminous energy field (LEF) for protection. They act as filters, breaking down any negative energies that come toward you into one of the five elements, earth, air, fire, water and light, feeding your LEF instead of allowing those energies to make you sick.

Harmony Rite (Anyni-carpai)
A transmission of the 7 Archetypes into the Chakras. First you receive the archetypes of serpent, jaguar, hummingbird and eagle; next you receive three archangels: the Keeper of the Lower World (our unconscious), the Keeper of the Middle World (our waking world), and the Protector of the Upper World (our super-conscious).

Seer’s Rite (Kawak)
Pathways of light connect the visual cortex with the third eye and heart chakra. This awakens the inner seer and your ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and Spirit.

Archetypes
Note: if you choose this option you would be wise to book a pre-session to understand the process and your commitment to the archetype journey within you and a session later to ensure you are gaining the most out of the process. Not necessary but highly recommended.

The archetypes are organizing principles of the Universe. They have been planted as seeds in each of your chakras. It is important to remember that you have received them as seeds, they are pure potential – it is your relationship with them that will grow them into the powerful forces that inform your chakras in new ways. That is why we do fire ceremonies, to grow these seeds with fire. As you develop your own relationship with the archetypes, your descriptions will evolve from your experience and become your own.

Serpent
Each of the archetypal animals exudes a different flavor of energy. Serpent symbolizes knowledge, sexuality and healing. Perhaps the most universal archetype, serpent has always represented the healing power of nature. The staff of medicine, or Caduceus, is formed by two serpents intertwined around a rod. The serpent teaches us to shed our past the way she sheds her skin so we may walk with beauty on the belly of the Mother.

Jaguar
Where serpent represents the power of healing which is gradual and incremental; jaguar stands for sudden transformation. That which endures is always changing and renewing itself; that which remains unchanged perishes. We can transform our bodies so that they heal more rapidly and age more elegantly by embodying the forces represented by jaguar. Consider the metaphor that we have nine lives, like cats.

When we reach the end of one of these lifetimes (others might call them stages or phases), it is important to give the old self a decent burial, and then leap like a jaguar into who we are becoming. Otherwise, we can spend years patching and fixing an old self which we have outgrown. Jaguar teaches us to step beyond fear, violence and death. She is the life force of the jungle and the steward of the life force.

Hummingbird
Represents the courage required to embark on an epic journey, much like hummingbirds migrate over the Atlantic every year from Brazil to Canada. Once touched by the energies of this archetype, we are propelled on our own epic journey that eventually leads us back to our source, where our spirit was spawned.

When you do not have enough time, money or know-how for what you are attempting, hummingbird can provide the courage and guidance necessary for success. Hummingbird drinks only from the nectar of life, seeking the flowers not the garbage, knowing stillness even in motion. Not built for flight yet undertaking and accomplishing the impossible journey.

Condor or Eagle
Eagle perceives the entire panorama of life without becoming bogged down in its details. The energies of eagle assist us in finding the guiding vision of our lives. The eyes of the condor see into the past and the future, helping to know where we come from, and who we are becoming. Eagle allows us to rise above the mundane battles that occupy our lives and consume our energy and attention. Eagle gives us wings to soar above trivial day-to-day struggles, into the high peaks close to Heaven. Eagle and condor represent the self-transcending principle in nature. Eagle pushes us out of the nest to spread our own wings so that we may always fly wing to wing with the Great Spirit.

Huascar
Lord of life, Lord of death -the harmonizing principle of the Lower World, our inner world. He/she is the renewer of the Earth and our own personal need of renewing those fields that are fallow, those places that need aerating. The gift of Huascar is a harmonic relationship with our inner shadow and hidden places.

Quetzelcoatl
Lord of the dawn, Day Bringer, Morning Star. Quetzal is a beautiful jungle bird and coatl is the feathered serpent represented by the Caduceus of Western Medicine. As the organizer of the middle world, when you come into relationship with Quetzlcoatl you don’t have to micromanage your life.

Pachakuti
Keeper of the possibilities and the organizing principle of the heavenly Upper World, Pachakuti embodies the concept of circular time, stepping outside of linear time to make time stand still and bring heavenly order.

Heaven and Earth
Life is a delicate balance between the changing and the unchanging. The Earthkeepers believe the LEF has three parts. When people die, one part of their essence (the changing) returns to the Earth, to be reabsorbed into nature and become one with all life. Another part (power and wisdom) returns to the sacred mountains, and a third part (the unchanging) returns to the Sun.

Earth is the receptive and nurturing principle with power to mulch and renew. When saluting the Earth we acknowledge our relationship with all life forms, from the trees to the fishes, the birds, and the stones, the four legged and the two legged. When saluting the Heavens we acknowledge our star brother and sisters, and we dedicate our healing effort to the Great Spirit, the Creator of all.
