Each week, three days after you receive Lesson One, we’ll meet as a group on a Live Zoom video call. On that call, I’ll guide you through my Grounding & Merging Process, and respond to your questions. Our time together on these live calls is a powerful and dynamic part of The Embodied Mystic program. Healing and transformation take place as we engage together as a group.
These live calls will be recorded so you can watch the replay afterward. 

My sessions, ceremonies, and workshops are a safe and welcoming space for members of the immigrant, BIPOC and LGBTQ communities




These are 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 Identify & 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.




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 so you can learn the journey technique and be ready for your first lesson.



The most important aspect of my shamanic work is that my teachings are grounded in the body. This is embodied inner work.

If you are looking for a spiritual doctrine or a way to escape your humanness, that’s not what you’ll find here (though, if you’ve been so distressed that you feel that way, then these teachings will be soothing and healing for you). 

The key difference between my shamanic work and many other shamanic teachings and practices is that in my healing model we are anchoring consciousness and presence into the body, rather than finding ways to transcend it.



  • Six recorded video shamanic-psychotherapy teachings (one each week for six weeks)
  • Free access to my popular Introduction to the Shamanic Journey audio course (A $79 value)
  • An mp3 recording of my shamanic drumming track for you to use for journeying 
  • 6 live Zoom calls–1 per week during your 6 week course
  • Special handouts and other free gifts throughout the six-week program
  • Access to our private Facebook page

Frequently Asked Questions about The Embodied Mystic program



“I am so deeply grateful for Luisa and the embodied mystic framework that she created. Her work is impeccable, very accessible, and it helps you rememberyour true self again. During the six weeks I learned so much and healed deeply. If you are ready to connect with yourself, nature, and spirit on a deeper level, then I recommend you take this program.”

Shakaya, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA




“Luisa has been my primary teacher/mentor for the past year and a half and it’s the single most transformative work I’ve been exposed to. Like, blows a decade of talk therapy out of the water. She’s a real person, grounded in this world, dedicated to being in this body and in this time and cuts through a lot of New Age drivel, which I feel gives the actual wonder of the world more luster. She’s mined these teachings and practical techniques through decades of her own work; they’re powerful and accessible. I have thanked her for her integrity through sobs and feel it’s a gift to the world that she’s figured out how to offer her wisdom more broadly through The Embodied Mystic Program. Every time I revisit a teaching I come away with a new understanding and greater capacity for deep self-nourishment. I’m grateful and highly recommend The Embodied Mystic as a foundational program for anyone.”

“I experienced The Embodied Mystic course as a doorway to the embodiment of one’s sacred or highest self. On the front side of the door is a mirror. The mirror offers journeying as a tool to dive deeper into introspective reflection where awareness provides an opportunity to examine, dissolve and release old, stuck, negative, emotional imprints that keep the door jammed. On the other side of the door lies the pathway to healing. Thank you, Luisa, so grateful for the shared wisdom of The Embodied Mystic.”

“In six weeks, Luisa offers students a life-time of content. You could quite literally spend the rest of your days unpacking all the wisdom and practices she offers. When you complete this course you will have have a foundation for better caring for your soul. And you will have everyday rituals that can support your continued unfolding. Luisa creates a safe and structured learning environment. Her compassion and deep knowledge provide an anchor for students to ground themselves as they join this community to openly explore, experience and converse with Luisa and one another. I look forward to joining Luisa on further Embodied Mystic adventures.”

“I really enjoyed The Embodied Mystic Program! Even after having worked with Luisa and learned many of her techniques prior to starting The Embodied Mystic, each teaching landed with me in new ways that met me right where I was at, at the time. I also found myself becoming more relational with my body and the depths of my own soul – as well as the inherent healing powers found in each.  I can’t recommend this program highly enough.”

Karla Ismay, Tijeras, New Mexico (Jicarilla Apache and Pueblo lands), USA


“I am so thankful for The Embodied Mystic program. Luisa’s teachings provided the structure, safety, knowledge and warmth for me to meet and develop relationships with parts of myself and the natural world that I was previously unconscious to, and take meaningful steps towards deep healing and transformation. This was my first experience with shamanic journeying, and given this incredible introduction I am committed to continuing to learn and grow. Thank you Luisa!”

“Beginning with the honoring of the First People’s whose land we occupy to the discovery of my Spirit Animal, The Embodied Mysticprogram taught me the depth and breadth of our seen and unseen world. Careful to honor all participants, past and present, seems and unseen, Luisa co-creates a trusting environment by honor each person and their personal journey. Starting each session with affirmations and pledges to confidentiality, we grew in a safe space, allowing each of us to share our experience and to feel deeply. I’ll return to these techniques often as I continue my path. My potent energy point is always with me, and I have met and continue to meet and nurture my fully blossomed self.”

Lynee Wells, Grand Rapids, Michigan USA


“The Embodied Mystic experience has given me a new strength to open up to and experience the spiritual connection to my deeper self and the natural world around me. This awareness has brought me an increases ability to accept and forgive myself, those around me and those who have come before as I join the universal connection of all life earthly and beyond with love and thanks. I physically feel lighter as I continue on this journey.” (Art work inspired by The Embodied Mystic teachings)

Laurie Hawe, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

“In spite of the physical distance, I felt Luisa’s care strongly throughout the program. This positive emotional support allowed me to identify places of pain, and then to engage with healing processes. The sequence of the lessons really worked for me—each step built upon the last in both a concrete and a spiritual/emotional sense. I felt lovingly guided and also supported in finding my own answers.”

—Denise Elizabeth Stone, Oregon, USA

Luisa is a seasoned, skilled guide for this work, and the Zoom sessions always feel safe and welcoming.”

—Ray Gulick, Bernalillo, New Mexico, USA

I experienced a safe and skillful learning space in The Embodied Mystic that has enabled me to trust and explore myself, and simply trust being myself.”

—Leslie Jadin, Washington, DC, USA
