Join Mariscela, Theodore and the Buffalo Mother Drum to create a “sacred bridge” to the Spirit World through Shamanic journeying and drumming, considered the most ancient way of meditation! A Shamanic journey leads us into an altered state of self-awareness that helps us work more deeply with intuitive and spiritual guidance. A drumming circle provides us with the opportunity to connect with our community of like-spirited people and to support each other in our sacred journey of self-discovery. Women and men are welcomed — bring your friends, drums and rattles!
Facilitated by Mariscela Alvarez, certified in Holistic Hypnotherapy, Shamanic Healing, Usui and Karuna Reiki and Tai Chi and Chi Kung instruction and Theodore Upton, healing practitioner of Native American and Eastern traditions.
About Mariscela & Theodore
Mariscela Alvarez was born in the highlands of Perú. Being raised in a culture full of traditions and healing techniques, her soulful heritage from the land of the Incas has always been present, leading her to reconnect with ancient traditions of North and South America and to learn powerful healing tools she uses to assist herself and others. Mariscela is the founder of Free Your Spirit, a holistic practice based on the knowledge that we are an integrated system in which our minds interact and affect our physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. As a Shamanic-healing practitioner, Mariscela guides people to activate their spiritual essence and sense of well-being by helping them clear blocked energies with the application of Shamanic journeys, soul and power loss retrieval, release of energetic interference and more.
Theodore Upton carries the Native American tradition of his Wailaki lineage, a northwestern California tribe who believed that spirits were present in all objects, inanimate as well as animate. Theodore, as his ancestors, also acknowledges that the source of the shaman’s power is his ability to communicate with the creator God and to live in harmony with nature. In the Wailaki way of being, the earth and all living things upon it were respected. Only what was needed was taken with reverence and gratitude. Theodore is a healing practitioner in the arts of Reiki, Aromatherapy, Buddhism meditation and Lineage Clearing techniques.
Mariscela and Theodore offer monthly Shamanic Journeying and Drumming Circles, as well as Solstice and Equinoxes ceremonies. They also teach traditional Peruvian Shamanic classes and rituals and organize Spiritual Journeys to the most sacred places in Perú and Bolivia. A trip to the Peruvian jungle is also offered once a year. Coming up next year, they will be facilitating spiritual trips to Nepal and Tibet with Mount Kailash as the focal point of the journey.
