Ancestral Alchemy Workshop

Ancestral Alchemy: Transforming Shame into Shakti

Wednesday Feb 15, 2023 – 8:00pm EDT via ZOOM

There are many ways to raise your consciousness and vibration. Personal development is a huge industry. There are many tools, therapeutic modalities, and experts that guide souls to build power. And there is one common denominator that gets in the way – the desire for name and fame. The more powerful you become, the more your ego will try to take over.

Once you reach the state of radiating positivity, it’s time to bring in the devotion. To be a true healer of the gap, Soul Mapping teaches you to stay humble while harnessing your power.

Awkward moments are portals for growth. The rubber meets the road when you’re either dealing with your own shame, or dealing with someone else’s.

This workshop is about practicing ancestral alchemy. Turing shame into power by honoring the tools and the source that heals generational trauma. Fuel your personal dreams, mission and purpose. Turn on your destiny by being happy.

    Bounce Back Better Workshop

    Bounce Back Better: Embody Resilience

    Wednesday Feb 8, 2023 – 8:00pm EDT via ZOOM

    Nobody wants to be in pain. Everyone wants to be radically honest. We want to be free. Liberating fear with new neural pathways (aka sacred rituals) reveals radiance and activates spiritual values. Resilience is beauty, compassion, wealth, power and all things delicious.

    In this workshop series we’ve unearthed concepts of Soul Mapping as the pathway for remembering our sacredness and soveriegnty. We’ve talked about the first realm of shadow work to pivot from destructive patterns of ego perfectionism that cause shame. Embracing the controversy in our hearts that leads to self-sabotage, loneliness, and oppression.

    We moved into the second realm of healing with ancient tools, invoking our team and creating new rituals that work for your unique culture. Now we ascend to the third realm where we see the manifestations that turn on our destiny.

    Soul Mapping is Resilience. Join us as we move into this next level of vulnerability and power.

      Liberating Fear Workshop

      Liberating Fear: A Soul Redemption

      Wednesday Feb 1, 2023 – 8:00pm EDT via ZOOM

      Fear messes with your already messy inner mind. You know there’s a process to pivot back to your vibrancy. You know there’s more to digging deep than the sound bits. Lasting transformation from misery to happiness starts by understanding the nature of your soul. But it’s the integration of wisdom tools that teach you to embody it. That shift in consciousness comes through a daily ritual.

      This workshop offers seekers, leaders and healers the opportunity to awaken radical honesty and unlock inner power. We’ll simplify the framework that ancients used to create empowering rituals, mature consciousness and embody spiritual values. We’ll open up to sharing vulneratility and wisdom in community, enjoy pwersonal coaching while celebrating YOU in totality.

      • Understanding the 3 types of essential rituals for soul-based living

            Tuesday Jan 10, 2022 – 8:00pm EDT via ZOOM

            Raw topics often get dismissed and shut down before getting to the juicy stuff, but that’s what builds authentic friendship, marriage, business, love affairs of all divine types.
