February 2023 Monthly Forecast

The themes for February are: “Pay Attention and Be Aware”.
This month provides us with many opportunities for a change or reset through unexpected events and situations. If you are paying attention and facing the ocean, you are less likely to be taken out by that sleeper wave you did not see. And there may be many sleeper waves this month that can catch you unawares if you are not present.

Inner Shaman Nature Retreat 2023

The theme for this retreat is ”How to live life from your essence”. Are you living your purpose? Are you sharing your personal medicine? Are you aware, and connected to spirit? Is your personality undermining you instead of supporting your essence goals? These questions and more will be addressed in this powerful Inner Shaman Nature Retreat in Northern New Mexico led mostly by Jose with practices, teachings and philosophy, with a few inputs by Lena.  There will also be an opportunity to sign up for an individual shamanic healing with Anna for an additional fee.

The retreat includes excellent and tasty meals (gluten free/vegetarian options available however we cannot accommodate allergies to very commonly used ingredients). Teachings will be a combination of group time, outdoor activities and classroom, hikes and time for rest and rejuvenation. A wood fired group sauna and/or fire circle may be available on one of the evenings depending on current fire restrictions.

New Moon Update 1-21-23

Dear Friends,

New Moon in Aquarius is Saturday, January 21 at 3:55 PM Mountain Standard Time (MST).

This New Moon brings into alignment a gentler time than we have experienced over the past few months. Even though you may feel an influx of fresh energy that inspires you to get out there and jump into something new, pace yourself and tread carefully and consciously into this unknown.

5 Year Cycle

Many of you have shown interest in the Trends talk reference to a special five-year cycle of change that begins in 2023 or, in other words, this year. Not being an astrologer, I cannot speak in those terms about the next five years so I will use my own way of describing the cycle which can best be characterized as change, change, and more change. As we pointed out in the Trends talk, 2023 is a year dedicated to cleaning up all the of the emotional and energetic detritus that has been brought to the surface by the big challenges we have faced in recent times…

Full Moon Update 1-6-23

Full Moon in Cancer is Friday, January 6 at 4:07PM Mountain Standard Time (MST)

This Wolf Moon is highly emotional and creates an opportunity for deep inner reflection and insights on your relationships and how you have been managing and balancing your life. You may get inspired to do things differently, to open up more emotionally and to rebalance what is out of balance. Although being in close community for sharing experiences and insights is supported, this moon provides more for a personal time of reflection rather than a social atmosphere for celebration.

January 2023 Monthly Forecast

The themes for January are: “ACCEPTANCE-DISCERNMENT”.

We start the year with a neon sign telling us to SLOW DOWN.  Slow everything down, go inward, rest more, keep a “don’t know mind” about everything, reflect, feel, process, and align your heart with your mind. We are conditioned to want to charge out of the gate with our new intentions and resolutions, ready for action, but that is not what is in the cards for the first part of this month.

Rewilding: Discovering Our True Wildness

“Be someone who transitions well. Accept it. Integrate it. Look for the opportunity in it. It is not other than you, rather it is also you.”             

~ From last month’s article.

Recently I was returning from a two-week vacation in Thailand with my wife Lena. While the trip itself was worth it the return trip was grueling….

Managing Turbulent Transitions

As many of you know this is a time of turbulent transitions, including those that are personal, societal, global, climatic, experiential, internal, external, physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental. In other words, just about every way possible.

Some of us don’t handle transitions well, finding them frightening, exhausting, trying, and challenging. Some of us find them exciting, energizing, interesting, or even fascinating.
