Event description

Description

Cultures around the world celebrate death as an initiation into a higher dimension. The colorful Mexican community celebration known as Dia de los Muertos honors beloveds that have crossed over to the unseen realms. When we remember these souls, we keep them alive in our hearts. We will create an opportunity for ancestral and karmic clearing and activate deep healing through the Shamanic traditions of ritual, alter creation, meditation, breathwork, drum journeying and a heart-opening ceremony. This devotional atmosphere will include tribute, celebration, song and dance.

We invite you to dress the part and bring offerings for the altar that may include pictures, food or any items that invoke the sprit of your beloveds who have passed on to the next dimension.

Nicole Doherty is the founder of EMPOWERTOEVOLVE, an Evolutionary Empowerment Healing Arts Academy for Women to Thrive. As a Shamanic Empowerment Coach, Shamanic Reiki Master Healer, Ceremonialist and Medicine Woman, she helps women to awaken their inner shaman and unleash their priestess power! Through her authentic vulnerability, powerful voice, strong intuition, and lightness of being, Nicole co-leads women through a deep alchemical healing process with Spirit and empowers them to activate their highest potential. Nicole’s initiation into Shamanism began in Peru in 2011 at the Temple of the Way of Light in the Shapibo tradition of the Peruvian Amazon and has been co-facilitating circles with her teacher and the master plants since. She studies the Pachakuti Mesa tradition founded by Master Peruvian Curandero, Don Oscar Miro Quesada. Nicole has dieted master healing plants in Peru with Maestros Don Benigno & Don Guido.

Lauren Armstrong is an E-RYT 200 Yoga Challenger, Light Coach, Shamanic Reiki Healer, Singer, Comedienne and Writer. While studying for her Master of Fine Arts in Acting she discovered yoga and breathwork, which inspired her to dig deeper into her own spiritual existence. She moved to Los Angeles and was immediately enamored of the health-conscious, light-hearted, yet deeply spiritual community residing here. She wrote and starred in a podcast about the joys of making healthy, wholesome food taste delicious called The Foodiegasm Podcast. She went on to study Power Vinyasa Yoga at Earth’s Power Yoga with Steven Earth Metz, and has been teaching yoga ever since. Lauren studied Reiki and Shamanic healing practices with shamans trained in the Shipibo tradition in Peru, learning how to guide others through trauma and stuck energy to bring about deep healing.. She has led workshops such as The Sacred Art of Play, Improvisation for Presence, Goddess Full Moon Gatherings, Storytelling Circles and Shamanic Breathwork Ceremonies. She believes that the Power of Love and the Oneness of All can be easily brought to light through song, story and laughter.

Brett Fleisher is a filmmaker, a musician, an attuned reiki practitioner, a youth empowerment facilitator with Peace Guardians, writer for LA Yoga, as well as many other yummy things. He is currently becoming certified as a somatic release therapist in efforts to understand more deeply the effects of trauma on the body and how to discharge them. Brett has spent his entire life deeply fascinated with the mechanics and inner workings of his mind and body and has pursued dozens of healing modalities in search of balance and peace within it. He has spent the last few years working with his teacher Zat Baraka under the New Masculine Program, organizing and facilitating men's circles in efforts to create a greater intimacy and vulnerability in his relationships and to embody the qualities of divine masculinity. Brett's mission is to connect heart to heart and ground himself and others in a world that is becoming increasingly chaotic.
