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...]

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...]

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. His name is Tyler Gage and he’s breaking the mold by bringing sacred shamanic practices into his organization here in the States. 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 ...

The Circle Of Truth

A few weeks ago, my wife Michelle and I were at my mom’s having dinner when the conversation took an interesting turn. The back-and-forth had been fairly safe and ordinary, sharing what we were each up to, indulging in a little gossip, discussing plans for the summer, etc. Then, the upcoming birth of our second child came up. At the mention of this joyful topic, excited words of support streamed across the table, commingled with loving inquiries as to how Michelle was feeling. She answered ... [Read more...]

3 Shamanic Ceremonial Herbs for Creating Sacred Space

The primordial healing traditions of the world vary in many ways, but one core belief they all share is that everything in and around us possesses an energy or spiritual charge. Feelings of negativity aren’t dismissed or coped with in these cultures; they are worked with and cleared, often through the ritualistic burning of herbs or plant resins. If you feel stuck, stressed, overwhelmed, blocked, low energy, or laden with inner conflict in your life, this ancient method of clearing the ... [Read more...]

This Woman’s Miraculous Recovery Gave Birth To
“Face Yoga”

In the middle of a jungle ceremony a few years ago, a shaman told me, “Sometimes you have to break down in order to break through.” One of the essential truths on the ancestral healing path is that crisis and transformation often go hand in hand. This crisis can come in a variety of shapes and forms – it may be a challenging life circumstance that brings a person to their existential edge, or a severe health condition that seemed almost impossible to overcome – until you did. A ... [Read more...]

An Eye Gazing Exercise For Soul Vision

I have a little challenge for you today that involves a simple, but often cathartic ritual that has been practiced for thousands of years — eye gazing. Our eyes are highly complex organs, capable of distinguishing the most finite details of our surroundings and interpreting the slightest discrepancy in another’s countenance. And yet, we rarely make direct eye contact with one another for more than a flashing moment. It can feel awkward to lock eyes for too long during a normal ... [Read more...]

Cherokee Wolf Wisdom

On a warm summer night a few years ago, an Ojibwe elder in the backwoods of Wisconsin shared a tale to illustrate an important choice we all have to make as we walk through this world. His words have stuck with me ever since and are particularly handy in times of intensity. Given that today is the summer solstice, I thought that now would be a good time to share this ancient wisdom with you. I hope this teaching serves you as well. Stay curious, Nick Polizzi Founder, The Sacred Science The Two ... [Read more...]
