Unexpected Conversations:

Initial Conversation:
Welcome and brief introductions.

“Your Creative Story”

  •  What brings you here today?
  •  What ways does your story about being creative limit you/benefit you?
  • How would your life be different without this story?
  • What do you need to do to make a new creative story?

Daily conversations:
“How is it going?”

  • Related to the illumination experience and the "creative homework" you engage to integrate your creative awakening experience.

   The Illumination Process:

What is it?

The Illumination process is the shaman's practice of energy medicine as taught by the Four Winds Society in the Healing Light Body training. It is founded on the research of Alberto Villoldo, PhD, a medical anthropologist who trained with Native American Medicine people in the Andes and the Amazon. Illumination has been practiced for thousands of years and is a powerful tool for personal transformation. Its underlying principle is that our emotional, genetic and karmic history organizes energy, often leaving dense or heavy imprints in our luminous energy field, which create emotional and physical dysfunction.

What does it entail?

The Illumination Process removes energetic intrusions, or heavy energies, from the luminous energy field that surrounds a person. The luminous field holds the template for our heath. Heavy energies can accumulate over the course of a lifetime and interrupt the free flow of energy through the chakras. By clearing and transforming these heavy energies, the luminous field can re-pattern the body and soul back to wellness.

What happens during a session?

The practitioner will perform a chakra assessment. Generally, only one chakra is dealt with in a single session. Sacred space is created for the duration of the session. The client reclines back with the practitioner gently cradling their head. The practitioner synchronizes their breathing with the client. The indicated chakra is opened and cleansed. The chakra is bathed in pure light and balanced. Sessions generally last an hour in length, with time before and after for discussion.

Will I feel anything?

Dependent on how sensitive you are, you may feel changes in you energy field during the session. Some people feel the energy shifting. Others feel just a deep sense of relaxation. Sometimes the process produces vibration. Some clients have visual images or memories that may provide insight into the cause of the imbalance.

What should I expect after the session?

Change can come very quickly for some, but it generally expresses itself slowly, with time. Clients are encouraged to keep a journal. They may experience vivid dreams or have sudden insights in the weeks following. "  

Creative Process:

  • Review the new story about your creativity and the benefits you are receiving.
  • Utilize “creative homework” to integrate the illumination experience from the energetic to all levels of engagement (serpent, jaguar, hummingbird and eagle/condor). 
  • Prepare a death arrow for the old creative story and bring it to a fire ceremony.
