I am working to achieve a balance of energy within my own life that creates a state of Ayni   Only through Ayni are we able to co-exist gracefully with those things that might otherwise challenge us.  As a practitioner I share the gift of medicine that I have been blessed with.  I utilize the medicine tools I have accumulated to assist clients who are looking to release dense energies that no longer serve and are blocking the soul's access to spiritual growth.  I have been blessed with medicine that has been transforming in my own personal life to raise my own vibration and instill a shift that has put me on a firm spiritual path than nourishes my soul.  In working my medicine I bring my authenticity through three specific qualities; Humility, Reverence and Self-Discipline.

AYNI - This is the single most important concept of the Andean way. It is translated as reciprocity and means the interchange of lovingkindness, knowledge, and the fruits of one’s labor between individuals, between humans and the environment, and between humans and nature spirits. Reciprocity implies that one’s labor is shared: I will help you today, and tomorrow you might help me. The purpose of reciprocity is the maintenance of life.

When we walk on the shamanic path of direct revelation, we engage in a spiritual practice in which we are to love all that we see with humility, live all that we feel with reverence, and know all that we possess with discipline ... a path that reflects our honor.

I have travelled to Peru to working with Pierre Garreaud, a Peruvian Sound Healer, Shaman and Teacher.  In Peru I received my Karpay initiations and activated these energies along with my Mesa with Shamans from two powerful lineages, the Inca and Moche Chimu cultures.  I have studied with several Shamans while in Peru,   Don Martin who holds the highest ranks in Andean Shamanism as Alto Misayoc, practicing Andean medicine for over 25 years. He was born in the Andean community of Paccopata, raised in Paruro(Cuzco). He was the apprentice of the famous Don Benito Corihuaman, under whom Don Martin studied and received his Karpays, the transmission of energy. After Don Benito's death, Don Martin inherited his mesa, his knowledge and wisdom.

Don Martin (watch a YouTube Video of his music here) resides in the village of Huasao, Peru where he performs daily coca leaf readings, healings, cleansings, purifications, extractions, and ceremony for his local community and people from abroad.   He is the keeper of the sacred Apu Pachatusan (where the Earth dances) the main Apu of the city of Cuzco.

His special gift comes through the eyes and wings and energy of the Condor.  He was 10 years old when first visited by the Condor, the spiritual Apu of the Andes which also became his spiritual name.

His work with healing stones, the Earth honoring ritual (Despacho), and flute-playing is legendary. Don Martin is married to Maria Sanchez, the granddaughter of Don Melchor Deza, a powerful shaman from Huasao, and also the niece of  Don Benito Corihuaman.

 

I held ceremony with another Q'ero Shaman, Don Francisco Chura Flores (Video Here) at Huchuy Qosqo.  After spending time in the Sacred Valley we travelled further on to the northern  region of Peru spending time studying and holding ceremony with Doña Ysabel  and Doña Olinda  famous curanderos from the North Coast of Peru (Chiclayo).  Known as “The Twins”, they work in their community as respected healers. They use ancient traditional healing methods. The focus of their medicine is to put you at peace with the Spirits of Universe. Isabel, from Singo in the province of Huancabamba, and Olinda, from Huancabamba village are soul twins, also known as Yanatin-Masintin, a balanced complementary union of masculine and feminine energy.

I have spent time studying and holding ceremony deep in the rain forest of Costa Rica with indigenous peoples of the Térraba tribe.  While there we held several ceremonies deep in the jungle and learned the ways of healing with the plants indigenous to that area.  

My path has connected me with many medicine men and women along the way each bringing new gifts of wisdom and knowledge to serve my brothers and sisters with the many healing techniques I have developed.  I don’t subscribe to a “this or that” technique – it is a blended form of medicine unique to my own personal journey.

I have also spent time in ceremony with Native American brothers and sisters here in the area that I live and also in other locations to the west.  I was gifted my spirit name by Grandmother Blue Crow in 2018.  I am, Yellow Butterfly!
 

NAMASTE!  ASHE!  LOVE & LIGHT!
