Workshop Schedule For Francis Rico

Hello friends,

The time for is fast approaching for Francis Rico’s workshops and healing sessions. Since our original invitation to you, Francis has made some changes so please read the new descriptions. I think you will be pleased to see that some prices have been reduced and the Sunday, June 10 workshops (2) have been combined into one fantastic workshop where, along with connecting with our guides and plant and animal allies, we will be learning the curandero “egg cleansing” technique. We will go into the chicken coop, pick out our egg and practice this technique on each other. I have done this before and it’s quite revealing and also a lot of fun!

The healing sessions are filling up. They will be held in Chapel Hill, Saxapahaw and Durham at Health Touch. If you want a session, please register now before it’s too late.

And don’t forget the free talk at The Oasis in Carr Mill Mall, Carrboro.

Discovering the Shaman Within – Discovering the Wilderness Within with Francis Rico – Shamans have always been explorers of the expansive creative energies at the core of life – and now, life itself is calling to the shaman within each of us to share our gifts and to align ourselves with the ancient wisdom traditions that can help us heal ourselves, our families, our friends, and our world. In this free interactive evening gathering Francis will share shamanic practices to:
• Move away from our cultural “entrancement.”
• Reorient with deep natural processes.
• Restore your innate feral intelligence and agility.
• Discover how to draw on your glimpses of wild inspiration.
• Ignite your enormous potential for inspired action.
• Pull back the curtains on the secret wisdom traditions that
are central to empowering, rejuvenating, and enjoying your
life, no matter what.

Wednesday, June 6, 7:00 to 10:00
Journey to the Lost Temple of Regeneration, 1237 Privet Drive, Graham (off 87 near Saxapahaw) 27253

The search for the “Fountain of Youth” never panned out, because it was never an external reality – from the beginning of time, shamans have known and taught that it’s an inside job.

This gathering is an adventure into the ancient wisdom traditions and practices that help us turn back the clock on aging, restoring vibrant health and creative vigor.

We will journey to the Lost Temple of Regeneration and there we will work with practices that:
– Access your neural plasticity for instant growth,
– Greatly increase your energetic capacity
– Recover energy from limiting negative habits and behaviors
– Shape a new responsive relationship with Spirit

Bring layers of clothing – we’ll be inside and outside – also bring a cushion and/or blanket to make yourself comfortable – bring a notebook, pen, and water.
$35.00 – pre-registration recommended.

Saturday, June 9, 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. – Water Ceremony and 7:00 to 11:30 p.m. – Workshop
612 Brookview Drive, Chapel Hill.

The Mitote – Experience Toltec Dreaming – We begin at 6:00pm with a Toltec water ceremony – an ancient ceremony of alignment with the flow of the light that was, is, and will be the expansive explosion of YES that is our cosmos and our home. This is a free ceremony – all are welcome, and you do not need to join the evening dreaming gathering to share in this blessing. $45.00

At 7:00 Toltec Dreaming – an evening of applied wisdom and ceremonies, in preparation for an experience of the ancient Toltec Dreaming Practice called the Mitote. Originating in ancient Mexico and taught by the Naguales (shamen) and Curranderos (healers) at the University of Spirit and Mystery at Teotihuacan, the Mitote is a field of expansive energy that is called in to support your direct experience of the way you dream/create your reality. The practice helps you find the flexibility that allows you to change your “reality” for the better.

For the evening dreaming portion of the evening, bring blankets, a yoga pad, a pillow, and whatever it takes to make yourself very comfortable for dreaming . Bring water and a note pad.
$45.00 Pre-registration recommended.

Note well: This is a private home with limited parking. There will be room for half dozen cars in the driveway and there is on street parking. Park as far off the road as you can and if possible, ride share with a friend.

Sunday, June 10 – 10:00 to 1:00 – Animal Allies and 2:00 to 5:00 – Plant Allies, 8773 Holman Mill Rd., Snow Camp

All Our Relations – A powerful connection with our animal guides, plant allies and mineral companions already exists because there is a wilderness within us! And the rediscovery of our ancient connections within this world offer us access to natural resources and guidance that seem magical and miraculous to those stuck in the isolated contracted state of our western “civilization.”

We will explore our alignment with the innate intelligence within all of life. This deeply healing work is of particular importance now, as the fabric of life on our planet has become increasingly compromised.
You will learn to make direct connection, to communicate with allies who have been waiting for this moment! Bring your drum, and be prepared for guided shamanic journey.

We will explore the healing potential of our guides and “power-animals” including special work with the Toltec Central Mexican currendero practice of “Egg-Cleansing” – using an egg to remove compromised and negative energies and illness. We will also perform herbal “limpias” – a plant based cleaning and clearing practice.

You will be coming to a farm with both large and small animals, so wear substantial shoes, bring outdoor clothing, water, and a box lunch for our half hour lunch break.

Gather at 10:30 – $35 Pre-registration is recommended; the workshop is from 11:00am to 5:00pm.

Onye Onyemaechi, Insights for Healing
Experience Healing Miracles and Deep Insights!

What people said about their recent experiences with Onye Onyemaechi in private sessions:

“Spirit was streaming through Onye’s hands and the drum he was playing came alive with divine power. Every cell in my body was called to awaken and I could feel the beat of every blade of grass. This, I thought, is what it feels like to be truly alive.” – PM, Graham, NC

“As a member of a healing community, I have had many sessions with many different healers using many different modalities.   My session with Onye was among the most powerful I have ever had.  Through the use of gentle touch and movement of energy a healing process was started.  He gave me a ceremony to perform by myself (with him praying for me at the time from CA) which totally eliminated an on-going problem that I had been having.  He takes no credit for his work but says it’s the Holy Spirit working through him.” — PM, Snow Camp, NC

“Onye helped me to understand a conflict I had with my deceased father. After my session with him I had a clear intention to resolve this issue. With action and forgiveness I reached a sense of peace and grace. I am grateful for his insights and wisdom.” –JB Saxapahaw, NC

“He raised my vibration and cleared a lot of stuff.  I left with a deep sense of peace flowing through my soul. The next day my aches and pains had faded away.  I was able to change my routine and focus on a project I’d been unable to start and I felt happier than I’d been in a long time.” –LR, Snow Camp, NC

onye-zone-304According to prophesies humankind has been experiencing periods of extreme change and upheaval throughout the world. We are currently in a delicate balance with current world events and behaviors critical to our future survival as human species. Many people are struggling with faith in humanity and feelings of hopelessness, fear and sadness and, most importantly, have lost their vision of their life’s purpose and their place in the world now and in the future.

In this workshop, we will explore the fundamental values and belief systems that enable us to secure faith, protection from psychic and spiritual attacks, to find our life’s purpose and to become awakened to the subliminal influences that are around us. The emphasis is on discovering happiness and our life’s path by improving our present conditions thereby acquiring deeper wisdom and insight for living a full, rich and happy life.

Alone and together, we will enact a variety of concepts and modalities that will assist us in finding the tools that will help us break through inhibitions and challenges permanently.  This knowledge will enable us to become stronger, kinder, more generous, and will awaken us to our purpose.

Please bring percussion instruments of any kind, an open mind and positive intent and wear loose comfortable clothing.

Candle Clearing Workshop

Shaman Connection Presents

Candle Clearing Workshop with Pam and Roger Mailloux

susto2

October 10,2015
10 -2 PM
Health Touch NC LLC
3500 Westgate Drive,
Durham, NC
Registration Fee:  $50.00

Join Pam and Roger Mailloux in this Candle Clearing workshop and learn how to remove “Susto” from the light body.

In South American and Latin American cultures “Susto” is a spiritual imbalance caused when a person experiences a sudden shock or traumatic event in his or her life.  The negative pattern that results from this event lodges in the physical body and/or the energetic body.  Candle Clearing draws negativities out of the body and emotional field and into the wax of the candle.   The candle is then melted and the wax poured into a bowl of water.  When the wax hardens, Pam and Roger will guide you in interpreting the resulting patterns and discuss them with each of you.
Workshop participants will practice on each other.

There will be discussion and instruction and all materials will be provided.
The experience will inspire learning and sharing.
Pam and Roger have been Reiki Masters and Teachers in MA and NC for 15 years.  They have studied the candle clearing process as taught by Ysabel and Olinda, The “Twin Shamans” from Peru.

tibetan Monks

The monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in Karnataka, India are coming back to this area to create their beautiful and sacred sand mandala.

Sand painting is an ancient Tibetan art form. The sand mandala is carefully constructed from dyed sand particles to represent the particular esoteric, textual traditions of Buddhism. It is a transient art form, thought to have originated in India and was transferred in the middle ages to Tibet. The sand mandala is constructed as a vehicle to generate compassion, realize the impermanence of reality, and a social/cosmic healing of the environment. At the completion of their several days of work, the mandala is deconstructed, the sand swept away and poured into moving water in order to spread healing and compassion around the world.

Place: The Arts Center, 300 East Main Street, Carrboro, NC 27349
Opening ceremony | Monday, May 18, Noon to 1:30 p m
Construction of mandala Tuesday – Friday, M a y 19 – May 22nd, 10 am to 5:30 pm
Closing ceremony with dispersal of mandala | May 23rd a t 2 pm

The public is invited to stop in during the day to watch them create this work of art. Donations may be made and they will have beautiful items for sale all made by the monks and all money earned goes to the support of the monastery.

Coming in March 2015 – Francis Rico!

My grandfather, Pedro Angel Fernandez, was a Maketo shaman, author, musician and philosopher. With my grandfather, I discovered that I have a unique gift – I am a “seer.” Early training with him formed a strong foundation – allowing me to now see clearly into the people and situations I encounter as a shaman.
francis ricoWe all have “gifts” – and a very satisfying part of the work I do is to help uncover, unwrap and bring these gifts into being – helping you awaken to the gift of your life. You will be encouraged to know that along with practices and work towards your well-being, the deep beauty of wild creation – within us and surrounding us – can also help us heal, bringing happiness and real magic into our lives.  We can become joyful and free!
How do I help you create this transformation?

Deep BeautyI help you make direct contact with the unseen guidance and resources that surround you and are within you. And, by drawing on the energy and innate intelligence at the core of life itself, we bring practical solutions and improvements to the issues of your life.

Working with indigenous elders, healers and shamans over the past 40 years, I have walked the path into initiation and practice in three ancient wisdom traditions: 1) the Toltec traditions of Teotihuacan Mexico, 2) the transcendent global visioning and healing work of American Southwest Plains Holy Man Tslew-teh-koyeh, (Beautiful Painted Arrow), and, 3) the pre-Incan shamanism of the Kallayays of Lake Titicaca and the Royal Andes in Peru and Bolivia.

Each of these modalities has rich and deep mythologies and cosmologies – and each has resources and tools shaped by many generations of healers and shaman. While I have the highest affection and respect for these traditions, and I include the use of tools and practices from each, I do not superimpose any methods or belief systems in my work with you.

Together, we look into the worldview and circumstances that you have created in your life. And we include the legacies, lineages and issues that you have inherited. From that starting place, Spirit – Divine Presence – or whatever you want to call it – illuminates what we need to see, and provides whatever is needed to bring healing – creating resolution and positive outcomes.

You do not have to learn or believe anything for my shamanic work with you to be effective. You simply have to be willing to experiment with the guidance, resources and practices that emerge from our work together.
