Restoring our Mythic-Indigenous Relationship with life
This is a journey of restoring our ancestral memories yet held in our bone memory of how we're part of the Earth's Dreaming... how we're an extension of nature.
We're restoring our mythic-indigenous way of being in the world that weaves us back into sacred belonging and our own power to bloom the dreamings held inside you.
We’re breaking free from the spell-casted veils of colonial-christian conditioning that disconnects us from ourselves, our potential and this greater mythic experience of life.
We're restoring our original understandings, reclaiming our stories, remembering forgotten teachings and endangered knowledge.
As the 13 Grandmothers share, “We are not separate from the Nature. We are an extension of nature and the laws that govern the seasons, weather changes, plants and animals also govern us. It’s time we remember how to attune ourselves to nature expressing through us.”
My mentor Ben, a Hopi Elder, shared, “We are all indigenous of Earth, it’s just most had these memories stolen from us through centuries of colonization.” He said “It’s time we remember how we’re indigenous of Earth if we’re to survive as a people.”
A Mayan Elders shares The indigenous mind knows that we owe it to the Earth to become that part of the song that’s missing. The Earth wants to put the song back together. If we can become the lost parts of the song we put the Earth back together, we put the health of the people back together. ~ Martin Prechtel
The Inner Weavings and what we mean by Mythic-Indigenous
By Indigenous we are referring to the psychology and mores of people who currently and/or ancestrally live as an extension of the land, plants, waters, animals, and sacred energies of place... they live connected to the mythic nature of life recognizing there's greater threads animating this tapestry of life than than what is modeled to us in today's industrialized world.
Worldwide, our indigenous & ancestral relatives model a way of living not as adversaries of life but a way of being in a sacred, reciprocal relationship with life... a way of honoring the principles that govern nature also govern us physically, spiritually, and mentally.
Through this 7 month journey we follow a traditional path of becoming part of the song and restoring these cultural weaves.
By Mythic, we’re acknowledging the universal understanding the language of soul is through imagery, symbols, stories, and songs that connect us to that which can’t be expressed by ordinary words.
Up until recently, humans from every culture have long used myths, fables, and stories to connect us to a greater mythic experience of life. Folktales often were ways of passing on knowledge or informing us of when the weather will shift or predict a change in our life.
We’ll draw from the World Library of myths and symbols from the Old Celts to the Pygmie of Africa, to the sea farers of Northern Waters, to the red sand canyons of the Hopi, from traditions around the world to restore the original vocabulary of soul speech.
We’re de-colonizing the “literal” speech that traps us in a black and white flat world and we’re restoring our mythic relationship with life.
This is a 7 month experienced based immersion shared in the oral traditions that guides you to have direct experience with these relational ways of being an extension of Nature so this isn’t information you learn, it’s wisdom you become.
The Weaves of Remembering
Earth Speech &
The River Beneath The River
As the 13 Grandmothers share, “We are not separate from the Earth. We are an extension of nature and the laws that govern the seasons, weather changes, plants and animals also govern us.”
You’ll learn Earth Speech and what’s called the river beneath the river which reveals the hidden principles influencing you and life everyday. Here you cultivate an intimate relationship with your personal hoop cycle, the elements and principles of nature that are always speaking, informing you, and stewarding you everyday.
Instead of fighting against nature, you’ll learn how to adopt an indigenous way of being so you may harness these and live in greater flow, reciprocity and abundance.
Reading What Cannot Be Written
The oral tradition is laced with hidden knowledge and endangered wisdom. Through storytelling, we reflect on the hidden teachings in traditional stories, songs and folktales from around the world that stir the ancestral rememberings yet held in our bone memory.
Here we’re restoring Soul Speech and tap into the initiatory nature of your own life. You gain a mythic view that unlocks the hidden meanings of your present, past and future life experiences.
Breaking Enchantments &
Nobility of Soul
It was once known we each come into the world with a song and you are that song, but spells have been cast and we’ve forgotten how to attune to what the Aborigine call our Songline.
Other culture’s call this our “Medicine” which is the unique gifts, power, and dreamings we have to contribute to the world.
We draw from more traditional and indigenous practices of identifying your true medicine, how to court it, nourish it and embody it within today's world.
A soul nourishing journey that has a felt sense of remembering yourself home.
Old Crone & The Cauldron of Mysteries
Shamanism invites us into a more mythic relationship with life where we recognize we have an innate ability to influence the physical reality through rituals, thought-forms, and intention. We’ll tap into core practical principles that empower you to influence and connect in with the subtle so to be in greater relationship and flow with life..
Details & Flow
Experience a more traditional path of learning. We gather around the Virtual Council Fire (zoom) twice a month and become part of a collaborative learning circle where as we tap into the wisdom stories and teachings we pool our experiences together.
We're de-colonizing and re-indigenizing the learning experience. We share in the oral tradition and guide you to gain a felt experience by apprenticing directly to nature and the mythic expressing themselves directly in your life. We invite you to go to special "power" places in nature, have direct experience with the elements and stories, and apply the shamanic mind to witness and measure your results from attuning to these indigenous mythic ways.
We then gather around the Virtual Fireside to share our experiences and learn from each other. You'll also have an online forum where you can share your experiences and receive daily inspired posts inviting ways to apply the teachings and embody these mythic-indigenous ways of being.
Mentorship & Elders
The journey includes two levels of mentorship to tailor the journey to you, your life and location.
The Roots & Bones Mentorship gives you access to Chivito via our online platform where you can message him directly and get tailored guidance. You may also schedule 15 minute mentor sessions.
