Rivers of Light: 

An Experiential Exploration of the Pathways of Lifeforce

In this class we will explore the Anatomy of the Light Body as taught by the Q’ero of Peru.  We will learn the practices of Saminchakuy, Saiwachakuy, and Hucha Miqhuy.  Drawing energy in through our Nawis (Energy eyes), and running it through the pathways of the light body.  We will be working with the untamed energy of creation (WILKA) and the pure ordered energy (SAMI) structuring it and blending it in our bodies as we install (or reinstall) the Bands of Protection


We will be heightening our capacities to feel the different qualities of energy flow.  We’ll practice running these currents though our bodies to cleanse and renew, and flower into our full creative power.  We will open the flow through the group – connecting us all together, and we’ll work in pairs to heal each other.


We will also explore in an experiential way some of the most potent Astrological influences of this moment in time, and you will connect with your star of destiny.


This will be a highly experiential class.


If this sounds intriguing to you – please let me know – And I will make it happen.

In-Person Weekend Retreat

Living in Ayni:

Creating and Maintaining Right Relationships

Linda Fitch & Wendy Root –  Cape Cod, MA | November  1-3, 2024

Life is Relationship. 


Have you noticed that when you are in right relationship, life flows with ease and grace and that when you are out of sync, out of right relationship, obstructions and failure abound?  


When you are out of right relationship, it’s easy to feel stuck, disconnected from your soul’s longing, perpetually misunderstood, isolated … Students say this shows up for them in feeling trapped, caught juggling work, family, and self. They often battle fear, scarcity and feelings of not being enough. They feel untethered, doubt about being on their purpose, yet have a deep longing for daily connection to something greater.


In Living in Ayni; Creating & Maintaining Right Relationships, you will acquire specific, tangible skills and practices to create a life of connection, belonging and flow.  We will begin creating powerful and authentic relationship to yourself, then explore how to communicate in a way that creates connection and belonging  instead of separation and strife, then take a deep dive in connecting with spirit. 


We will examine the underlying beliefs in the modern world that keep us trapped in our individual selves. We will work on shedding those traps of the isolated self and open the gates to a world of belonging and mutuality without ever relinquishing your uniqueness.


Come explore, laugh, cry, play, and invite in relationship to self, other & spirit.


“Real intimacy is a sacred experience. It never exposes its secret trust and belonging to the voyeuristic eye of a neon culture. Real intimacy is of the soul, and the soul is reserved.”

— John O’DonohueAnam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

Linda Fitch & Wendy Root –  Cape Cod, MA | October  20-22, 2023

Within all family systems, there exists a varying degree of old grief and trauma. When survival events, such as war, persistent poverty, religious trauma, or natural disasters are embedded in your family lineage, the process of healing can become intricate and met with formidable resistance.

The significance of your parents remains steadfast, regardless of whether they excelled at parenting or faced challenges. The ancestral narrative resides within you, coursing through your blood and bones. Even without conscious awareness, these traumas can leave an indelible mark on your life. Epigenetics has confirmed how trauma is inherited across generations, often with detrimental consequences. Family members frequently find themselves with limited resources to establish a harmonious connection with lineage systems rooted in the trauma triangle, often resorting to physical separation or avoidance as coping mechanisms.

However, unresolved family dynamics can manifest as energetic barriers, financial constraints, challenging relationships, or health issues. They resemble unconscious loyalties that, as shamans suggest, may persist for up to seven generations.

In this class, you will acquire specialized tools designed to release ancestral trauma, creating an opening for a harmonious connection that reverberates through time. This newfound freedom, guidance, and support will empower you to shape your future more positively.

Hear your ancestors calling?

Dancing with the Archetypes:  Healing The Personal & Shifting the Global 

Join us for a journey to engage with the Archetypes, those powerful energies that influence our lives and mold our perspectives of the world. Together, we will embark on an exploration to uncover, identify, and interact with these energetic forces that both guide and, when misunderstood, ensnare us.

When the archetypes shaping our world are perceived as wounded, we all bear the weight of that injury and inadvertently mirror it in our individual lives. At both the personal and global levels, we will delve into and invoke the timeless energies of archetypes, such as the Masculine, Feminine, Mother, Death, Justice, and the Collective. Using tools like tarot cards, astrology, myths, and images from popular culture, we’ll immerse ourselves in the living essence of the Archetypes, seeking to comprehend their needs, objectives in our current era, and how they, in turn, can transform us.

Join us for a weekend filled with ceremony, healing, and conscious co-creation. Working with Archetypes is akin to venturing into the realm of the divine. Let’s take this journey together and learn to engage in this mystical work consciously and with joy, for our own growth and for the betterment of our planet.

Destiny Retrieval: The Master's Tools

Working with Destiny is the Shaman’s Calling

In every moment, our choices mold the path of our destiny. However, often, we remain unaware of the consequences of our day-to-day actions. In these intricate and challenging times, it is of utmost importance to possess the skills necessary for consciously shaping the course of our lives and envisioning a brighter future for the Earth and all its inhabitants.

This class not only equips you with the Master’s Tools for infusing vitality into a chosen path but also guides you in the process of resolving karma, personal trauma, and family-of-origin patterns that might be steering you towards a destiny incongruent with your highest potential.

Classic shamanic destiny retrieval involves the deliberate visualization and empowerment of one’s most optimal potential futures. Join us to acquire “The Master’s Tools” and learn how to enhance and actualize a chosen path with potential and purpose.

Walking Consciously in the Light - Tools to Release the Dark

with Linda Fitch and Wendy Root    

Much of what we see and experience in our world is created unconsciously in the energetic realm. We must develop our understanding of this energetic realm so that we may navigate the light and dark and consciously develop our power and protection.

In todays world, the division of dark and light has reached an almost unprecedented level. Having the skills to work with wisdom, safety and strength against anger, fear, negative thought forms, and sorcery has never been more important.

Join us to learn to walk consciously in the light and come into balance and right relationship with those things we have called dark.  Together, we will work with unraveling sorcery, curses, bindings, and negative thought forms.  We will develop skills to shift our self sorcery, and learn how to install protections that work.

Mastery of Sacred Time

with Linda Fitch and Wendy Root

This workshop on Sacred Time is the natural next step to the Sacred Space work covered in Medicine Wheel or Change Your Story, Change Your Life course.  It can also be taken as a stand alone class or as an introduction to Shamanic work.

Come learn the shaman’s skills of mastering sacred time. Experience the internal shift needed to move into a place of stillness and navigate the streams of time. Discover new ways of staying in the sacred to create and anchor in a destiny crafted with spirit from outside of time. Come build a new relationship with time to leap into a destiny of laughter, joy, peace, beauty and abundance for yourself and for the world.

Our exploration also encompasses the acquisition of additional shamanic energy medicine skills, including Celtic death rites and dreamtime practices.

Weekend Four - Walking a Path of Service with Spirit

Embark on an exploration of the evolving cultural changing paradigm of service versus sacrifice. This is a moment in time when prioritizing self-care becomes essential, enabling you to be fully present in the process of manifesting your desires and nurturing the evolution of your soul.

Looking at grids and memory will work with soul remembering to be fully here to step into the creator and dreamer. Our journey will include substantial periods of contemplation on the Earth and in the Upper World, where you will collaborate with teachers, guides, and power animals to incorporate the qualities required for the new narrative. With unwavering courage and the aid of ceremonial practices, you will attain a profound sense of peace and tranquility, akin to that of a master sage, by committing to a wholehearted alignment with the spiritual path.
