3 Wild Herbs For Lucid Dreaming

Do you remember what you dreamt about last night?  How about the night before? For thousands of years, we humans have placed a ton of value on the content of these bedtime reveries, deriving inner wisdom and even premonitions from them. Dreaming feels like a birthright, an extra sense that allows us to process both rationally and spiritually while our body rests up. They are one of behavioral science’s biggest mysteries, with no agreed-upon theory of their origin and specific purpose. For ... [Read more...]

The Ancient Art Of Chakra Bathing

Okay, I have to admit—it took me a while to get on board with my chakras. First of all, they don’t teach us about our energy systems in science class. Second, we can’t see them, so they’re not obvious parts of our bodies like, say, our hands. But the more I learned about chakras, and the more I got in tune with my body, the more I realized you can feel them. Sometimes it can feel like a cool breeze, a subtle vibration or a warm tingling sensation somewhere along your spine. You can ... [Read more...]

Soul Wisdom From The Dagara Tribe

This morning, I came across a bit of wisdom from the Dagara people of West Africa that really struck a chord. The words below were spoken by Malidoma Patrice Somé, a spiritualist and writer from this tribe, whose work is centered on the ancestral healing traditions and sacred rituals of his people. In Dagara communities, the function of the soul is very carefully examined. The appearance of each individual means far less than the essence or truth that is contained within one’s body. The soul...

A Modern-Day Shaman Shares Her Wisdom

A few days ago, I had the honor of speaking with a woman who has made a profound impact on the world of shamanic healing over the past 30 years. Her name is Sandra Ingerman and her wisdom stems from ancient healing traditions deep in Siberia, the land where the word “shaman” originates. The presence she holds and the truth she speaks are a testament to the inner and outer frontiers she has ventured beyond. I’ve wanted to meet Sandra for years, and to be totally honest, I was a little ... [Read more...]

The Power Of The Invisible

A few weeks ago, I had a conversation that blew my mind and heart right open… Know the kind I’m talking about? An exchange with another person that pulls you right back into alignment with your spirit path? This is what happened to me during an interview with Colette Baron-Reid – a psychic medium, seer and oracle who I am honored to call my friend. She led me on a short shamanic journey that she’ll lead you through in the video below as well. Colette calls it “Get on Your Bird,” and... [Read more...]

5 Signs You’re Out Of Spiritual Alignment

Do you ever get a nagging sensation that something is not quite right inside of you? I’m not talking about a kink in your neck or an upset stomach – this is deeper than that. Maybe it’s a limitation within yourself, or a lack of flow and direction where there once was an abundance. Familiar with any of those? Of course you are, because you’re human! If you didn’t encounter occasional slumps, I’d be worried that you had a screw loose. Inhabiting these earthly bodies on ... [Read more...]

Is The Universe Trying To Tell You Something?

Have you ever noticed certain patterns in your life that keep happening over and over again? Maybe it’s a number. Like when you see 11:11 on a clock multiple times in a week, for example. Maybe it’s the repeated mention of a book or song. One of our team members, Bonnie, was recently contacted by three different friends who had encountered a live bear in the wild – separately – in three different states. At first, she thought, “Oh, how interesting—the spirit of the bear is trying to... [Read more...]

Healing In Your Sleep

Ready for something personal?  Gulp! Here we go. A few months ago, I began to hit a serious dip in my energy levels.  Each day, I would wake up feeling like I had been beaten up in my sleep, rolling out of bed with pain in my muscles and zero energy. Walking up the stairs felt like a herculean effort—and I’m in good physical shape. This wasn’t like me. We try to do everything we can in our house to stay healthy.  Eat right, exercise, meditate, work with traditional healing ... [Read more...]

The Sacred Wisdom of Honey Bees

The other day, my son River and I were outside playing when he spotted a family of bees buzzing around a bed of purple hosta flowers along the front porch. Immediately mesmerized, the world around him stopped as he crouched down to get as close as he could to the insect action. This kid—who seems to be naturally drawn to all things sacred—is one of my greatest teachers. He reminds me to slow down and notice. Watching closely as the dutiful honey bees carefully gathered the white dust of ... [Read more...]

Can Walking Barefoot Heal Your Heart?

Why do so many humans equate relaxation and pleasure with walking barefoot along the beach as the waves roll in? How come my son River’s first instinct is to take his shoes off when he sees a field of green grass? Is it kooky human behavior that is simply hard-wired into our genetic makeup, or is there something more to this urge to remove footwear? Historically speaking, it seems like we’re right in step with our forebearers. Long before we had cushiony sneakers, our distant ... [Read more...]

How To Weave Shamanism Into Your Work Life

Last week, I had the pleasure of interviewing a man who is making a big impact on the Amazon Rainforest and also changing the way the world thinks about conscious business.

Tyler is the co-founder of Runa Tea, a social enterprise that makes energizing beverages with a rare Amazonian leaf called guayusa. He and his team are true pioneers in the realm of tea craft, ...

3 Medicinal Tea Recipes To Keep You Young

Today we’re going to take a look at three time-tested tea recipes that have been used for centuries to support the largest organ in your body – your skin – and keep it youthful and vibrant. BUT FIRST, let’s examine this concept of “age” a little deeper. The older I get, the more apparent it is that our Western culture is transfixed on the notion of youth and will go to just about any length to mask the laugh lines and gray hairs that come with living on this planet for ...
