Join Me for a Vision Quest in Mt. Shasta in July!

I have an amazing opportunity for you to join me for a “Moving Through It” Quest in Mount Shasta, California on July 27-30, 2018.

This is for people who are interested in creating what you want by using my technology, coaching, and guidance for “Moving Through It.”

Moving Through It! means working through whatever is bothering you or holding you back.

Rather than numbing it through alcohol, shopping, TV or whatever else limits you, I will coach you to directly manifest your dreams through exercise, meditation, journaling, and gratitude work.  This is a spiritual retreat in a beautiful, natural setting that brings you closer to nature and to your own heart.  I will support you in going on a Quest for yourself and your life. I have conducted this Quest since 1991, leading dozens of people on a journey of self discovery and breakthrough. 

For those of you who have attended or supported on a previous Quest, you know what an amazing experience it is being out in the Mt. Shasta area, feeling safe and taken care of and having that powerful nature supporting you. You are out in nature, feeling the power of Mount Shasta’s energy, a life changing experience!

Some of the things that might we might address on the Moving Through It! Quest include:

  • Identifying Your Blocks or Limitations
  • Gaining Clarity about your Career or Life Purpose
  • Healing Relationships
  • Finding Inner Peace
  • Connecting Deeply with Nature
  • Facing Your Fears
  • Beginning or Deepening your Meditation and Journaling Practices

Here are some of the logistics for the Moving Through It! Quest:

  • We will gather in Mount Shasta on the first day, July 27, 2018 (I will disclose the location to you when you register). This is also a solar eclipse day, with powerful energies to kick us off on our inner work. 
  • Then I will lead a sweat lodge, weather permitting, to clear out your energy and mind and open you up to new insights.
  • After the lodge, you will select your campsite.  
  • You then go out to your place in nature to camp for 4 days / 3 nights on your Quest.
  • You will have a supporter (me) who checks on you to make sure you are safe while you are out on your Quest.
  • Back in camp, where we will stay nearby, the team supporters will continue to pray for you.
  • Monday morning (July 30) your Supporter will bring you back to Sweat Lodge and in silence we will have ceremony welcoming you back, plus share ceremonial food, and we will conduct a ceremony.
  • After we are complete I suggest or demand anyone from out of town stay here locally in Mt. Shasta, as you are probably in an altered state, without realizing it. It is really about safety.

I have 4-5 spots available for this amazing life adventure. If you are interested please contact me and I will send you an application.  

Even before the Quest begins,  many issues may come up for you. We will have six meetings leading up to the Quest to provide you with support and coaching. 

By gathering together on the conference calls, you will be prepared by the time you arrive on July 27th for the adventure. You will arrive with 707 prayer ties that you have created to pray for your Quest, your life, your family and for the Earth.

Then once the Quest is complete,  we will have three more sessions  to integrate what came up for you before and during your Quest and to help you Move Through It with my coaching. This is really a powerful ceremony for your life. I hope that you will join me for this great adventure. I look forward to supporting you on your journey, your Quest, and in Moving Through It on whatever is holding you back! 

With blessings,

New Times not sure what that means for any of us!

So I feel very blessed, suppose to go Kona 3-14, however got an email from Alaskan Air confirming the flight 3-7………geese louise! I was sure they were wrong not so on my way to workout at 5:45am, but knew I needed to get on the phone cancellations, plus less then 2 day to achieve new reservations? What a nightmare but still knowing there is something deeper going on. My Virgo rising doesn’t make these type of mistakes but did, oh my! So now paying more for car, so many are going to Kona due to crazy weather in the East Coast. I spend till 3:30 pm getting it settle plus paying much more then usual. So now less then 24 hrs to jump in the car ride to Los Gatos have my son Josh get us to the airport by 6 am. We did it plus having my Mom at 88 letting her know at 7 am we are leaving for Kona Wednesday morning she says, ‘ Are you kidding”  me “Nope!” Then explaining or trying to how I could mess up so bad. This is a big example of following directions no matter what which Charlie Thom knew I was good at one of my many gifts. Often not really understanding why only to find out much later. I still don’t have the complete answer yet,but what I do know it I have a bigger bill on my credit card, coming back had 2 new clients. I know I needed some type of healing  getting out of town being by the energy of Pele for sure. I had planned to write more and didn’t but I did do a video early in the morning which was fun and easy. I feel blessed to have done zoom with a couple different groups for over a year feeling pretty comfortable using it plus seeing the benefit of being authentic. I also got some flyers planned and sent them to Zepp getting done for my talk In Portland March 14 11-12:30 a place I haven’t wanted to go since my son was living there to get resident so he would apply to Dental School. I will do a video on FB on that long relationship with the area. I also got my flyer done for my talk at East West in Mountain View April 21 6-9 pm workshop.  I did that video on FB already both flyers are almost the same the same talk posted here along with my Women’s Me too gathering May 26-27, so I did get focused. Also getting focused of coming back for recouping maybe every 6 months; Still doing 3 sessions for clients while on this vacation. I really love being available for my clients a gift I have had for many years Eve Crane from KEST the radio show always complimented this. It is very important to me!

Coming back feeling the importance of getting out there the time is NOW I knew I had to do the March, however jumping in the car going to SF or Sacramento was too much of a drive, so I went to Medford to be counted. Seeing that I guess the crowd was over 50 yesterday the poll said the most were age 49 and older, plus 89% Hilary voters. The time is now that is another reason I workout so much to clear the crazy energy of this political and personal energy, plus being that older in the North of the Medicine Wheel Elder to be able to continue this drive! Thank you for reading this!

In Between the Eclipses – Feb 2018.

Wow, wee what is going on? I bet you are wondering along with everyone else……..I keep checking astrology thinking am I doing this right, probably not…..so I still workout early to stay on track, meditate, pray, tap, and off to plan my day.

I was in the Bill Baren Rising Stars (2015), the program just before All-Stars, building to get there but suddenly on November 28 I got a message from one of my breakout coaches that she owed me two sessions more since the program is now over or you can have your regular coach do those, really I still owe money. At first, I was floored as they brand themselves on integrity and communication, how did I not know it was over?

But then I stepped back to think,  ok God this is another sign to step aside. I had talked with my coach saying this then settling in that maybe I was just finished with this particular part of the program.

One of the issues I have worked on all year is setting boundaries with my clients. I am very folksie so  I tend to work with my clients for a long time. I find that people squeak in the friend range when I attempt to say that in fact, the shaman work I have been doing with them is really in the client mode, they tend to get angry. So why wouldn’t they when free works. I have often opted out when asked to go to lunch or coffee they still want some processing or support so then I just skip that. So my coaches have been a success I have set some clear boundaries leaving some of them annoyed with me. I had one guy I met once he announced on one of my calls by the way I will no longer pay you because we are now friends……..Really? I never know what to say at that moment.

I have some great tools and training from the Bill Baren training, meeting amazing people. So I have learned this year that just keep the focus no matter what. My clients are saying the same thing feeling out of sorts, stale, not feeling inspired, wishing they would achieve their dreams, but till these eclipses are passed we are putting down the magic and prayer to make miracles happen and move forward and through it no matter what.

I have gotten clear messages recently I have followed those directions, if I ask my clients to do it then I must. When I was going to the bay area to help relieve family stress I go to Soul Cycle and intense workout this gal I have gone with this would be my fourth time. I got the clear message to offer to give her support, now I don’t know her at all. But one of the Shaman gifts I have always had is I follow directions like accepting that Bill Baren may be done with me. So on Saturday morning in Stanford Palo Alto I came early to give Casey my card telling her that I would love to support/reading for her………she looked shocked but I said we could connect after. Which if you nothing about this Soul Cycle it is 50 people all jamming in on soul cycle bicycles for 45 mins. then coming out another 50 people coming in for the next class so crowded front office, but I stuck around feeling a bit stupid but knowing I had to do it. Casey told me she had never done anything like that seeing her look at me this crazy woman I got her email to send her this website and my info. Funny huh!

Then another vision I had been in a group of women on Zoom after doing the Christine Kloser’s Transformational Author Retreat in Baltimore, we did our Soul Sister Writing Group for about a year using Zoom. I had the definite message to see if they would be willing to maybe do it again once a month or so. So I again wrote a message who knows the jury is still out on that. I had 2 gals from that group I had to claim that session (paid) verse friend so made a peace call to the one to heal it. I know at this time it is no accident who shows up these days holding on the resentments or old stuff isn’t where it is at.

I also had two friends I have known for over 20+ yrs contact which for me is another beautiful sign the time is moving in a good direction. One had already signed up for my Women’s Gathering May 26 & 27, plus making flyers for Vision Quest July 27-30. So what is my point about this since we and I are in-between these eclipses and New Moon very important to set the groundwork for not only this year but the intentions for the coming years as odd as that might seem.

I also contacted New Renaissance In Portland I am doing a talk April 14, and at East West in Mountain View on Medicine Wheel Wisdom and the Healing Power of Mt Shasta. Even though I too feel like I am somewhat stagnating, I know I am in the right place writing here getting back to my stories that need to be documented even if I use my other name but while I still remember the wild happening it needs to be a focus.

Today Results Coaching Fundamentals Retreat has started for the Bill Baren but it felt clear as I went to workout at 6 am I am in the right place doing the right action. In the past, I have done so many things and knew I had to show up but this was a clear message nope no need. It is free great people well I am still paying so not so free. I am sure it is awesome again not wanting to sign up for the next go around but not now. My friend Rebecca is there I miss doing this with her but we can do something else or still continue as accountability coaches. Just a heads up I did my visit Vision Quest in 1991, then being in the Marble Mountains for 13 days processing the other Questers 26 of us, having an office in San Carlos having groups of women for the Artist Way, also doing Women’s Empowerment’s, so this is not my first rodeo, but doing Coaching with Bill Baren’s group since 2015 I have learned many better skills, of sending agreements, commitment s for each of us, it has helped define a better clear communication of expectations.

Eclipse Full Moon January 31, 2018

So how has your year felt like it started? Do you feel yahoo another New beginning or what is this all about? I feel that way though I think it could be life changing it feels like a tight strangling girdle, like what the heck is going on? I still feel the main grounding focus is to attempt be happy no matter what crazy is rocking it………Let’s create a world of Ease, Fun(Joy), and Unstoppable determination to achieve our destiny. Like this video I had planned to send it around to clients but of course it wouldn’t download, except for on Facebook and here. I had several fraud problems to the point of closing accounts being hacked having the hackers call me Peter & Stella, only to find out the Security Company I have that I thought they work for didn’t. I definitely have a new beginning I had no plans to do calling various and changing payments methods of course I don’t have new checks or ATM yet…….So what is my point well this beginning of the year is very different then expected but we still have to keep our focus and clarity. Our teams are building our Shaman Spiritual Practice is growing, the woman’s movement, so much reminds me of the Vietnam march I did in San Francisco. Planning to do the Women’s march here in Mt Shasta after last year, so much more powerful many more men feeling something is being birthed it will survive better and stronger then ever.  Come be with me as a Spiritual Teacher Elder the time is NOW!

Creating Magic after Unbelievable Year

Ok that sounds interesting but we have gone through a huge purging from President, sexual assault, losing tax relief, medical is definitely in question, so what is the possibility of Magic. I have achieved some goals this last year that I wanted to do since 1998, one which is putting wood floors in, now a wood stove. However with the successes I feel there is so much more to do and needs to happen. I did The Best of Mount Shasta, Mom had a big gash on her leg that is just now getting healed a crazy time, going to Dr. So me being driven to accomplish my Launch,  write, LinkedIn and go to New Renaissance book store has’t happened. I saw on FB where this fellow wrote 3 books this year and has plans to do the same in 2018. Those of us who just can’t get it going with the way of our  astrology, Carol who did my chart on my birthday told me not to expect much till about now, asking her why it isn’t moving? So now I am hoping that since Saturn is going out after 28 years of being there. I can get into my gratitude and focus for my role in my own destiny.  When I work with my clients what people don’t understand is the importance of our mutual trust and intimacy to achieve goals……..plus laughter taking it lightly and let’s have some fun as you achieve your goals.  So much for me to achieve not only from now on, but for the next 10 yrs. time is of the essence. I also am interested in talking about the “Medicine Wheel” since I am in the North Wisdom Keeper White Buffalo I see life differently then I did when I was in the West Bear and Raven Medicine, where you are driven in many ways. As I look back I could have focused my time is such different ways but there we feel so driven knowing we are right, plus fairly addicted to our suffering, not realizing the healing is happening to focus on how effective we can be now that we understand why we choose that form of learning. I know I got the Oscar for that that even after starting in Native it drew more out of me with the heat and being in nature, but the problem is letting it go, to do the real deal new beginning once we are experiencing the death of sorts. Fascinating stuff then bringing it into present day how to achieve goals and move for understanding that our childhoods are what we came to work on and how we are here to help people with our compassion of ourselves plus innately feeling theirs. Really beautiful if we have the ability to see it for what it is. I think now I can but then I wanted to tell my story over and over, how about a new story? That is where we all are no no matter what our age this New time coming is important to change it up get the focus and determination necessary!  In answer to how do you and we create magic we have to be fully engaged in this life for again determination, focus, and taking our bodies with us. Your benefits can be more JOY, Laughter, and being honest with your progression in your divine part, it takes a more fulfilling life which is what we strive for while on earth, I can help you design that plan or create the dream that you stopped dreaming!

Autumn is here!

So this summer went by with a great Eclipse Aug. 21, 2017 one that was huge, we had a small group up at Sand Flat, drumming, praying, and singingI didn’t realize that we would see 90% of it but once I did I put the call out to drum and say prays our small group was amazing. The summer went by great first The Best of Mt Shasta, after my big birthday transition it was great, met great presenter’s, plus great people we just need more people coming to the event. My Mom carried my block of wood from my display here hit her leg took a huge section of skin off 20 stitches later darn after such a great weekend. It was a huge process, we went to Kona on Labor Day the next day after the flight her wound was oozing so we went to urgent care, they were very concerned, almost ended up in the hospital with IV’s but took oral medication that upset her stomach. I got up early ran each morning watching the sunrise so awesome feeling so blessed having a great condo. What was awesome I had 4 sessions sitting out on the porch, now feeling I love my clients and doing it this way. I felt it opened up more possibilities for me to do this more often. Also with Mom’s limitation made me slow down read a great book which being in Bill Baren’s Coaching Program reading all kinds of material letting my reading go or not reading as often as I like. We went to Hilo to visit our favorite Temple, eating amazing food, by then Mom was feeling better.

Coming back I am feeling more motivated to do more!

I had started making a commitment to get to workouts at 6 am with not only the attempt to workout but also to change my brain messages; I am too tired, it is too early, on & on. I have achieved that for 6 + months feeling great about it all plus really focusing on achieving more still standing a bit still with my web site just starting to change it, plus push toward doing a launch 6 week course on FB but doing it conference call or zoom modality. I asked the friend astrologist Carol when she had done a reading for me contacting her when we got back asking why I am not moving forward more she said that it isn’t time yet. Astrology will move more by the end of the year, however that doesn’t ease my conscious or my coach wanting me to move.

So now I am definitely looking forward to those changes anxious, today I have confirmation from favorite clients that were here for a session and fire ceremony, plus my other client’s birthday writing all her has achieved, then having a friend say she wants to do Quest this year, plus has a friend who also wants to do it. I want to do 4 people that seems possibly 3 already, yahoo, great day!
