For thousands of years, human beings have found themselves caught in the prison of their own story lines aided and abetted by the influence of prejudices of family systems, cultures, and religious programming. For the most part, humans have felt at the mercy of events and influences beyond their control and have often suffered greatly as a result. The reason for this has been the limits of their own beliefs, their amnesia about who they actually are, and the hypnosis delivered by the civilizations within which they live.
The full moon in Pisces is Monday, September 20th at 5:54 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).
Despite relationship irritations, dissatisfaction with work and home, or feeling overwhelmed with what is on your plate, this full moon is conducive to taking a positive and proactive attitude towards improving your story. Don’t allow your energy to be depleted by the mental struggle around your perceived burden of responsibility vs your own desires and needs. Make a conscious decision that creating a better story for yourself will benefit everyone in your life. And then do it.
POWER PATH ONE YEAR SHAMANIC STUDIES PROGRAM 2022/23
With Jose, Lena and Anna Stevens
The purpose of this program is to learn about the shamanic path, from ancient to modern, how it interfaces with modern quantum physics, and, through powerful practices, ceremonies, wilderness solos and other shamanic experiences, to assimilate its wisdom and integrate it fully into daily life.
Enrollment is limited to 32 students that will form a supportive community for the year. A commitment to attend all meetings is expected and required as a prerequisite for any further advanced study.
New Moon in Virgo is Monday, September 6 at 6:51PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).
A new moon is always a good time for a reset and for beginning a new cycle. There is a burst of new energy and inspiration that can be harnessed as fuel for a new project, relationship or intention. This moon specifically triggers a potent energy that can be experienced either as fear and anxiety or as excitement for a positive shift as it has to do with inevitable change. Intuition is enhanced and you can get downloads of insights, truth and clarity.
The main theme for September is “Time for a New Story”.
We are certainly tired of the old one and feeling restless, irritated and ready to start something new. The future, however, is still intangible and unclear. We find ourselves often floating around in the shadow, making several much-needed trips back into the underworld to deal with karma, clear our past and release the attachments to old ways. September is not an easy month as we navigate the balance between what is pulling us back into recapitulation versus what is being offered as an opportunity to rewrite our story. It will do you no good to “wait it out”. The demands of this time require an interactive relationship between yourself and your story. In order to change it, you will need to step up your relationship with spirit, your guides and allies, and your authentic self.
We just heard from the publisher of Jose’s new book, How to Pray the Shaman’s Way, that Amazon.com has put the E-Book on sale for 99 cents!
If you don’t already have it, now’s a great time to get it. Other books on Shamanism by our friends don Jose Ruiz and Steven Farmer are also on sale for just 99 cents too.

Human beings are evolved and concentrated points of higher awareness scattered throughout the physical plane. We shine like bright lights in an otherwise glowing landscape, growing more radiant and extending our light to all in our proximity. In this way we human beings are growing in awareness and helping the rest of the physical plane to grow brighter as well even if we don’t know it. The higher-self abides in our awareness of our own consciousness but we are often distracted from this higher self by focusing on thoughts, feelings, and perceptions seeking to define, explain and interpret our surroundings. In other words, we humans are so curious and fascinated by the goings on in the physical world that we forget who we are for long stretches of time. We begin to identify with our physical bodies and our very local personalities – projecting importance to everything that seems outside of ourselves and forgetting who and what we actually are. In a word, we humans choose to become small and compressed when we are actually spacious and transcendent.

When I was a child I remember being alternately impressed and terrified by the biblical command, “I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have false gods before me.” This was the command of a dominant God issuing a directive with implications of dire punishment if disobeyed. It conjured up images of frenzied hordes dancing around and bowing down to golden calves and huge statues of demonic images. I recalled the names Baal and X and the whole thing gave me the creeps.
On the heels of a powerful solstice that begins a new cycle comes a full moon. This moon is in Capricorn on Thursday, June 24 at 12:39 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).
This is an optimistic time, and could be very prosperous if you can move through the challenges of the distractions of drama and ego-driven negative behaviors in yourself and in others that may crop up. Honesty, emotional vulnerability, humility and a good spiritual base are important foundational aspects for success during this time. It can be a very expansive time especially if you can harness the positivity and optimism. It is a good time to reflect on the containers of your life. What is too small, too big, completed etc. We have some good momentum to initiate the creation of some new containers for ourselves for this cycle.
