Sacred Sound Healing Ceremony (Midsummer 2018)

Hello all!

The online Summer Solstice Sound Healing Shamanic Ceremony was a wondrous success! Although the video quality isn't as clear as other uploads, the ceremony was powerful and instructive.

We learned about sacred chants from different cultures, invocations to deities, sacred prayer songs (Ragas) in Hindu/Vedic traditions, and worked with both Coyote and The Morrighan to transmute the pain/trauma of our world, give voice to the grief of those who aren't being witnessed, and support & heal ourselves for the Summer ahead.

Please enjoy this video, and refer back to it when you need healing for yourself, others, and/or want to provide healing to the greater world!

Suicide in the United States

(shared from numerous websites, unknown image creator)
Whatever you are going through, whatever you are dealing with, please remember that #mentalillness is Not Your Fault, your thoughts are not always true/rational (your brain can lie to you, if you don't have the coping skills to recognize it), and that Willpower Doesn't Solve Suicidal Thinking!
I am a firm believer in the power of All Medicines, both Shamanic and Psychiatric, to help manage and support #mentalhealth. Having a full treatment team backing you up is a wonderful way to help you to not feel alone.
The hardest thing to do is to convince yourself to Ask for Help (you are not "being a bother", "faking it", and/or "making a big deal out of nothing".) Suicidal depression is very alienating, and the brain chemistry will bring up all sorts of thoughts to increase your dissociation and disconnection.
I will NEVER victim-blame you, gaslight you, or judge you for what you are feeling/experiencing. I will witness your pain, your trauma, and your crisis, and Not Be Afraid (in fact, we can be "in the muck" together). I can help with some reality-testing of your emotions, and if needed, we can seek out additional support together (it helps to have an advocate who understands the mental health system in the States).
I see you, I am with you, I love you.

Upcoming Sound Healing Shamanic Online Ceremony June 19th!

(c) Monika Healing Coyote, 2015
On Tuesday, June 19th, I will be hosting an Online Healing Ceremony via FB Live. Recently, I attended an intensive Sound Healing/Shamanic Medicine Melodies Workshop in NYC (part of this program: https://www.opencenter.org/sound), with the amazing Silvia Nakkach (https://www.opencenter.org/silvia-nakkach). Much of my shamanic healing work involves sound, rhythm, chants, invocations, and sacred songs. This ceremony will be a continuation of the specialized work that I do, both for the greater healing of all participants, and for the Earth Mother.

This event is open to everyone, and all you need is a WiFi- or data-enabled device in which to stream the audio/video feed. To ensure that you receive updates and instructions, please login to Facebook and mark yourself as "Going" on the event!

For those who have not participated in a FB Live event before, the steps are easy!

  1. Go to "Monika Healing Coyote Shamanism" and ensure that you have "Liked" my Page.
  2. On Monday evening, prepare yourself to participate in both your own and the Earth's healing. Whatever you need to do to feel comfortable in your room/home/space, do it. Pajamas, tea, a small snack, turning the cell phone off, etc. Many folks like to take notes as the Ceremony progresses, and to write down any insights that come during the healing process. 
  3. At 7pm, I will begin the Live event, and Facebook will immediately notify all persons who have marked "Going", and have "Liked" my Page, that I am going live.
  4. Click on the Notification, and a video screen will open up for you to experience the Healing Ceremony.

I am offering this Healing Ceremony during the holiday of Midsummer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midsummer), and will be working closely with the Earth Mother, the Spirits of Nature, and our own cultural deities & spirits!

Finally, I am asking for a small donation from each participant for this work; a minimum of $11 (which can be paid via PayPal towards my email address: lonelycoyote@healingcoyote.com , or use this link).

I can't wait to work with you all, and break through the constraints of space & time for Healing!
