I'd intended to share my big news through the blog that I am writing about my shamanic initiation experience this summer, but apparently my heart has much more to say about it than I'd realized, therefore it will be a few more days until I get the blog post out to the world. Be on the lookout for it and more soon!
Today I'm excited to finally officially announce that I will be staying in Peru for a long while! I've been offered (and said YES, please!) to a position to continue my shamanic apprenticeship and to facilitate ayahuasca ceremonies at a healing retreat center here in the Amazon jungle!
I start my 3 months of on-the-job training next week and will be back in the States for 6 weeks over the holidays before I officially begin facilitating in late January!
This means that over the next few years I will be in the jungle and away from the web for weeks at a time. I know some of you may be wondering what does this mean for my YouTube videos, blog, and coaching practice?
Because of this amazing opportunity for me to continue my studies, the videos, blogging, and coaching will be put on the back burner for awhile. I will continue to make videos as I feel inspired, but there will likely be a lot less than I have done over the last year and a half. Due to the super sloooow speed of jungle Internet, it may take months at a time for me to get videos out to share with you all. I will do my best to keep my blog and social media (Facebook and Instagram) updated, so that will be the best way for us to stay connected in the time ahead.
I will, however, be opening my schedule to a limited number of clients whenever I have an Internet connection that will allow me to host coaching sessions. Because of my limited availability, I'll be raising my rates after January 1st of next year so if you'd like to be notified when I open my schedule for consultations in December at my current hourly rate before it goes up, please enter your info here: http://eepurl.com/bm-dD9
It was a tough decision for me to step back from all that I've worked so hard to create over the last 18 months, but I know that what I've created so far has just laid the foundation for what is to come. And I know that what I will learn and experience through continuing my work with the plants will propel my work forward in a way that I can't even begin to imagine at this point.
Be patient, my friends! We all have work to do individually to help heal our collective wounds, so go out, do your work, and the wisdom we have to share with each other will be exchanged at the perfect time :)
With infinite love and gratitude from the heart of the Amazon,
