Pragmatic Shamanism Podcast is Here!
I know I've been MIA lately- taking some much needed time off for self-care- and I owe a lot of you return emails, texts, and phone messages. TOTEM will be returning, offering readings and sessions, and we're looking at potentially finding a new space to start to move towards doing TOTEM full time (if you know of anyone that has a space or a room that I could rent or share in the West Loop/ Fulton Market neighborhood, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org). And, of course, I'm going to be responding to everyone's messages to get sessions scheduled ASAP!
During this staycation, I've also been working on our TOTEM Tarot Deck (shout out to Emma Cook- the incredible artist who's creating the amazing images!), our refreshed website, and collaborating with other practitioners, like the amazing Candice Wu of the Embody Community and Podcast.
Candice was kind enough to ask me to join her on her podcast to discuss all things shamanic- check it out here:
It was an awesome conversation and, if you haven't subscribed to her podcast yet, you absolutely should- check it out on iTunes here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-embody-podcast-self-love-healing/id1358575048
Here's a taste of what to expect in this episode of the Embody Podcast:
The ease of moving energy vs moving the material world
Wu Wei and aligning to the invisible rivers of flow, non-attachment, synchronicity, and being
The hilarious and agonizing experience of the 4th and 5th dimension, the multiverse, and the Mandala Effect
Other realities and co-authoring our lives in empowerment
How would you do it differently if this life weren’t the beginning and end?
Spirituality is ingrained in life and is an emerging science where we may have lost some memory
TV shows, Doreen Virtue, and Elon Musk and their relationship to energetic themes
Balancing corporate America and shamanic work
BONUS: A practical and spiritual Tarot reading for the host and audience!
I really hope you'll all check it out, subscribe, and share your your thoughts with me via email. If nothing else, let me know if you want more!
And, on another note, I want to thank my fellow practitioners (and personal helpers!)- if you want some guidance, energy work or you just need some help taking the pressure off of daily life, reach out to them:
- Roger Oney: https://www.rogeroney.com/taos-mountain-healing-project/
- David Riddle: http://chibalancingcenter.com
- Aleyah Swan: https://aleyahswan.com
The "healer community" is tight knit and incredibly supportive- without these individuals, TOTEM wouldn't be where it is now. Choosing this path is a hard one. Healers find themselves constantly challenged by new life experiences and in a perpetual state of discomfort and growth. It's because of each other and our clients (like you) that we continue doing our work, against what can sometimes feel like insurmountable odds.
And stay tuned for updates on service offerings, expanded hours (or even full time hours), new location(s) and when our TOTEM Tarot Deck is going to hit Amazon!
