THE EMBODIED MYSTIC — A 6-Week Video & Live Zoom Program
Begins on Friday, October 2, 2020
YOU’RE A MYSTIC — A LOVER OF EXPANDED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS…
BUT ARE YOU TRULY HERE AND EMBODIED?
Now that you’ve recognized that the Enchanted Forest—a fantasy world—does not offer a full life, the question is: How to live and thrive in the larger world?
The Embodied Mystic program is designed to help you:
- Feel more grounded
- Feel more safe in your body
- Learn how to cope with overwhelming stress and anxiety
- Reconnect with a sense of hope and spiritual sustenance
- Find inner strength to fortify you during this intense time
I KNOW ABOUT THE ENCHANTED FOREST BECAUSE I LIVED THERE
I lived in the Enchanted Forest for many years. Because I was naturally psychically and emotionally porous I had trouble discerning between shamanic reality and the after-effects of relational trauma.
I know what it’s like to feel unsafe in your own body.
Waking up with anxiety and flashbacks of traumatic events in the middle of the night was not unusual for me. I also know what it’s like to make unsafe romantic and friendship choices due to the eroded self-esteem and poor judgement that arise from early experiences of emotional trauma.
My lifelong quest for ways to manage my anxiety and self-esteem issues has been paramount. I consciously started on this quest when I was twelve years old. I have been my own most discerning and potent case study for decades.
The teachings, techniques, and personal interventions I have developed over all these years have been the foundations of my shamanic-psychotherapy work with my students and clients. These techniques are powerful, practical, and effective.
NOW WE’RE ALL EXPERIENCING SOME FORM OF STRESS. OLD, UNRESOLVED TRAUMA IS RISING TO THE SURFACE.
My techniques for recovery from emotional trauma are also incredibly relevant in the midst of a global pandemic and paradigm change. I’ve designed this program to assist you with both your personal and collective stress at this time. The whole world is in crisis and this means that we are processing not only our own personal emotional material, but also that of the the people around us.
In The Embodied Mystic 6-week program, you’ll receive one video and/or audio lesson from me each week in your email inbox. Each one will be accompanied by a homework assignment which will include:
- A suggested topic for you to write about in your journal
- A shamanic practice for you to experience outdoors in nature
- A shamanic journey intention for you to explore more deeply into what that week’s teaching means for you
- Participants are invited to send me (Luisa) a 2-3 paragraph summary per week with highlights of your homework.
- You’ll also have an opportunity to share and discuss on our private Facebook page
We will have a live group Zoom call once a week on Tuesday evenings
Each week on Tuesdays at 8 pm Eastern Time starting on Tuesday, October 6th, we’ll meet on Zoom. I’ll guide you through my Grounding & Merging Process and respond to your questions.
HERE ARE THE SIX LESSONS YOU’LL BE RECEIVING
In these 6 lessons, I share shamanic-psychotherapy teachings with you to give you tools and self-interventions you can put to use right now.
- WEEK 1: Your Potent Energy Point
This point in the front midline of your body is an essential portal for relieving stress in the moment, and also for accessing and healing old trauma.
- WEEK 2: The Grounding & Merging Process
This guided journey through your physical and energetic dimensions is foundational to my teachings. This is how embodiment begins: by coming into relationship with your experience of being in your body.
- WEEK 3: Your Fully Blossomed Self
This is the bridge between your personal psyche and Source. Your Fully Blossomed Self is your oldest friend, closest companion, and greatest ally. S/he has got your back.
- WEEK 4: The Three Compassionate Statements
This gentle self-intervention begins at the Potent Energy Point (P.E.P.) you learned about in Week 1, I’ll teach you a powerful self-intervention that you can do right now to reduce emotional and central nervous system overwhelm.
- WEEK 5: Widening the Riverbed
This is a teaching and technique for expanding your sense of inner space when you are trying to process emotional and energetic intensity.
- WEEK 6: How to Release Carried (Toxic) Shame
Carried shame originates from being in the line of fire with a person who violates your boundaries with no subsequent feeling or ownership of their appropriate shame about their boundary failure. I’ll teach you how to identify and release this toxic energy in a grounded, safe, and integrated way.
PREREQUISITE FOR THE EMBODIED MYSTIC PROGRAM
The prerequisite for The Embodied Mystic program is being familiar with the shamanic journey technique. This includes having a working relationship with your power animal, a departure point in nature, and an understanding of the three shamanic worlds. You’ll receive FREE access to my Introduction the Shamanic Journey audio course when you register for The Embodied Mystic program.
Please listen to the Introduction to the Shamanic Journey audio course before you receive your first lesson on October 2, 2020. If you’ve already learned the shamanic journey technique, please listen to my course again so you are up-to-date with the technique and with your relationship with your power animal.
EMBODIED AND RELATIONAL: THE ESSENCE OF DEEP HEALING AT A ROOT CAUSE LEVEL
The most important aspect of my shamanic work is that the work is grounded in your body. This is embodied inner work. If you are looking for a spiritual doctrine or a way to escape, that’s not what you’ll find here (though I believe that it’s probably a really relevant place for you!). This is the key difference between my shamanic work and other shamanic teachings and practices. In my healing model we are anchoring consciousness and presence into the body, rather than finding ways to transcend it.
Teachers like Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie have taught us that we are not our minds, and that it is our thoughts and unresolved emotional history that create a lot of our anxiety and suffering. I agree with them, but I believe they’ve left out a critical piece of the puzzle. That critical piece is the body and how it has become habituated to reacting and trying to deal with stress in ways that ultimately become toxic and self-defeating for us. I will teach you how to come into compassionate relationship with your humanness, your vulnerability, and your beautiful imperfection.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q- What is the basic format of this program?
A- Every Friday starting Friday, October 2nd, you’ll receive that week’s video along with a Study Guide. Every Tuesday evening (8 pm Eastern Time) starting on Tuesday, October 6th, all registered participants are invited to join a live Zoom call with me. I’ll lead you through a grounding process and answer your questions about that week’s lesson.
Q- Is this program only for people who have worked with you before?
A- The Embodied Mystic program is for everyone. It’s appropriate for ages 15 and up, all genders and orientations.
Q- I am drawn to your work, but am not familiar with what shamanism means in this context. Do I need to have experience with it?
A- Shamanism in this context means that we’ll be using the shamanic journey technique at various times throughout the program. This technique is easy to learn and creates a bridge between your ego-consciousness and spiritual dimensions.
Your tuition to The Embodied Mystic includes access to my Introduction to the Shamanic Journey online audio course as a bonus, to provide foundational tools and practices before the program begins.
Q- I feel a little intimidated by the term “Shamanic Psychotherapy” that I see on the landing page of the program. Can you tell me what that means?
A- I blend body-centered (sometimes called “somatic”) psychotherapy techniques with easy-to-learn shamanic practices to help you feel connected with the spiritual dimension of your inner self. My model of shamanism starts with being present in your body and your emotional reality so you can send your consciousness to non-physical dimensions to retrieve guidance and healing.
Q- Do I need to have completed the “Leaving the Enchanted Forest” series you offered to do this course?
A- No, you do not. That was a free gift from me that you may still enjoy, but it is not necessary to have listened to that series to join us for The Embodied Mystic.
Q- I am curious about the program, but am not yet totally sure it’s for me. How can I see if it’s the right thing for me?
A- If you feel drawn to it, there is likely something for you here. If you would like to talk with me to explore the benefits it may provide you, please book a call with me here.
Q- I am not sure if I am ready to pay for it, or if the cost is worth it for me.
A- Only you know when it is truly time to invest in yourself and your future, but I can tell you that there is a lot of value packed in this program. All participants will have access to me at a fraction of the fee I normally charge. I also have payment plans available. You will save $200 if you register by Friday, September 18th!
Q- I am not on Facebook, do I need to be on Facebook to participate?
A- You don’t. I will send all course information via email. The main value in being on Facebook is connecting with the community of other participants, which is completely optional.
Q- Do I have to have my video on for the Zoom calls?
A- No. Video is optional, although it is encouraged.
Q- Can I ask you my question about The Embodied Mystic program directly?
A- Yes, you can book a free 20 minute call with me. Also, during the program, you can post questions in the Facebook group, or bring them to our weekly Zoom call to discuss the content.
