Awaken Your Jaguar: The Lost Art of Shamanic Heart Navigation

April 12-14 in Traverse City, MI with Jeff Nixa JD, MDiv.

  • Friday 7p-9p: Welcome, Introductory talk, book-signing (love donation)
  • Saturday 9a-5p: The Shamanic Heart Path: Ancient Wisdom for Navigating Modern Life, $65
  • Sunday 9a-5p: Fire Talks: Introduction to Shamanic Counseling methods, $65


The most important task we have is to discover what we are here for: to know our soul’s purpose and to bring that unique gift- our ‘medicine’- fully alive in the world.  But how do we find our true purpose?  Who can be trusted to show us?  And how do we begin living a life more aligned to our hearts without falling back into old patterns of helplessness, anxiety, busyness, or self-doubt?

This weekend program will introduce you to the powerful healing and empowering practices of the Heart Path, a soulful, time-tested, strength-based approach to living rooted in the earth-honoring spiritual traditions of world shamanism. Saturday’s workshop will provide an overview of shamanic healing with key practices for awakening one’s “inner jaguar”, the instinctual power and capability of the heart.  Sunday’s program will expand on Saturday’s work and teach a basic Fire Talk (shamanic counseling) practice for breaking old patterns by directly engaging with the spirits of our inner fears and wounding patterns in a safe and structured way that can transform our deepest fears into our greatest allies and teachers.

Summoning Your Shamanic Power

May 10 – 13, 2019 in Midland, MI; June 14 – 16, 2019 in Traverse City, MI with Jeff Currier

  • Friday 6:30p-9p: Welcome! and Introductory Talk – Setting the Stage for the work
  • Saturday 10a-5p: Unlocking Your Personal Power
  • Sunday 10a-4p: Using Power Properly


In this weekend workshop, we will take a deep look at using and reclaiming personal power and the proper use of power in an empowering and new way using shamanic concepts and methodologies.

On Saturday, we start to explore power – “Unlocking Your Personal Power”, we will look at how fear comes into our lives, both the conscious and unconscious ways that it manifests.  When we learn how to transmute our fear into personal power, we can dream and create the life that we desire for ourselves.  We will recapture the power you have within yourself, and in doing so, embrace the light within your heart. Once this transmutation of fear has occurred, we can then harness the personal power that it provides. We will also take a deep look at personal power and the various ways we give it away as well as the ways that it is taken from us.  We will also look at the concept (that is much discussed) of “The Divine Feminine” and propose a new approach to this energy and how it relates to our personal power.  “The Divine Feminine” applies equally to men and women and is often misunderstood or misconstrued, creating fear and conflict amongst us. As you begin to reclaim your personal power you will begin to feel your(true)self, your soul; you will gain a lightness, a new way of being that will enable you to create and bring into reality the life path you desire.  Investment:

On Sunday we will begin to learn the techniques to bring back our personal power for ourselves and for others.  We will meet and develop relationships with spirit allies that will aid us in developing a stronger sense of our personal will and power, allies that keep us protected and safe.  We will learn to harness the power of locations that can become power spots for us, leaving us grounded and power filled.  Finally, we will look at and work on ways we have improperly used our power and how we can correct that going forward.  Through awareness of our words and actions we will see how we can stand in our power in any situation or event.  Investment:

Learnings from this weekend program will include:

  • Understanding fear and harnessing it to empower you.
  • The Divine Feminine and its application to both Men and Women.
  • A new way to see and deal with conflict without disempowering ourselves or others.
  • Meet Power Allies for use in your life and work
  • How to do Power Retrievals for yourself and others
  • What grounding really is and how to ensure you’ll no longer be knocked off center in your daily life.
  • Practicing discernment and recognizing how it differs from judgement in a compassionate, heart-felt way.
  • Express your personal power and energy from your heart rather than being caught up in our head and thoughts.
  • Integrating your personal power and energies to eliminate cyclic behaviors and karmic cycles.
