 We've made it through the Longest Night of the Year, and survived the trauma of 2020. If you missed the Yule Solstice ritual when it went LIVE on Dec 21st, here is the recording on my YouTube channel:


Many blessings to you all, and stay safe,

Druid sabbatical and thoughts on capitalist commercialism (even in a pandemic)...

 I cannot believe it is December 6th already. This year had such wibbly-wobbly time dilation that I feel like I am still in the long months of late summer...

from Wikicommons, public license

My family and I went on "Druid Sabbatical" around Samhain, which means we are living off of our food storage, our medicine storage, and our firewood storage. What started out as an experiment to discover how our Celtic and Indo-European ancestors lived during the Dark Half of the Year has now turned into a self-chosen shelter-in-place to protect ourselves/others from the pandemic that has raged out of control in this country 🙁
As we approach Jul (Skål for jul!), I am noticing that my body is instinctively adjusting to the different demands and responsibilities on my time & energy. Crafts and music and reading have been my go-to hobbies and forms of stress-release, and I LOVE IT!
I've also noticed a strange "splitting" as we get more into the holiday season. I am excited to set up the tannenbaum and lights next weekend with my family, but the capitalist aspects and advertising are causing a frenetic energy that I am NOT comfortable with. I am working on handmade gifts for friends and loved ones, but scrolling through Facebook and seeing ads for really beautiful things feels like a "hit" to my personal shield. Ugh.
I've been journaling regularly, to keep the memories of this life-altering time, and I appreciate the keen awareness this has brought.
How are you all dealing with this, lovely readers?

The Undeparted TV Show and the need for Psychopomp Healers

 As we get closer to Winter Solstice, many of us are reflecting back on this year of 2020-- the Pandemic Year.

There has been SO MUCH needless loss of life, especially here in the States. Over a quarter of a million dead, and we haven't even begun to count those who technically survived but now have permanent disabilities due to the coronavirus.

Since Samhain, the Wild Hunt has consistently rode the harsh winds of Winter, in order to help psychopomp the Angry, Unquiet Dead to where they need to go. 

The Undeparted TV show demonstrates some of the nasty side effects of Dead Energies that remain in the realms of the living for too long. I and my fellow healer, Harriet Shager, worked for over 2 years with Sand Hill Antiques to help clear, bless, and protect the property (and its caretakers).

Our pilot episode is free to view, and if you are interested in learning how to help the Dead move on safely, please join me and other attendees for the upcoming workshop on Psychopomp Healing, Sunday December 6th at 12noon EST!

#GivingTuesday and supporting your Community Shaman!

(c) Monika Healing Coyote, 2020, and Jim Evangelista, photographer.
 

Hello lovely readers,

Happy #GivingTuesday to you all!
I am reaching out and asking for help. When Maryland first closed down for #shelterinplace back in March, I immediately reduced my ceremony prices by 50%, in order to cover individuals who lost jobs, had their finances drastically reduced, and/or attempted to go on unemployment.
Throughout this year, we've seen the complete lack of financial support for most Americans, especially as unemployment funds have almost run out. I have maintained my 50% discount for the whole year, praying that others who have more can pay full price to cover.
If you feel inspired to help, I ask that you please make a donation to support my work for the Community. I will continue to provide healing, mentoring, teaching, and clergy support, but am in need of help to do so.
Many blessings and my huge amount of thanks,

Monika Healing Coyote Shamanism

Psychopomp: Healing the Dead

 Over a quarter of a million dead American souls lost to COVID-19. This pandemic has caused an incredible amount of loss, and the Mighty Dead, Ancestors, and recently-deceased need our help as magical practitioners.

(from WikiCommons, public license)

On Sunday, December 6th, Monika Healing Coyote will facilitate a workshop intensive from 12 noon EST to 4pm EST. This 4-hr intensive workshop will discuss the role of the Psychopomp in different Indo-European, Greek, Ancient Egyptian, and North American cultures, and how interested folks can learn techniques to help the Honored Dead connect with loved ones after they have passed.
The lecture will also describe the 5 stages of Grief (Kuebler-Ross) for both the living and the dying/dead, the dangers/side effects of this magical work, partially-guided journeys in order to practice newly-acquired skills & techniques, and how to add this work to clergy counseling, death doula work, and other healing modalities.
The cost of this advanced-level training is $40, and all participants will receive a recording of the lecture, notes, and additional materials for their own mystical work.

House Clearings & Blessings Workshop Intensive THIS SUNDAY!

(c) Monika Healing Coyote, 2020

The magical work of creating safe & protected space exists within all cultures. In many Indo-European practices, house clearings and "dwelling blessings" are used to create a safe home environment, protection from the weather, the promotion of "ghosti" & hospitality between hosts and guests, and the facilitation of sacred space when connecting with the Spirits.

The importance of learning House Clearing/Blessing techniques is even more important during this 2020 Pandemic Year.
Join Monika Healing Coyote on Sunday, November 22nd, in this 5-hr intensive to learn about clearing the dwelling space of negative/intrusive energies, fostering healing relationships with the Land and genius loci, setting up wards & protections around the home/apartment/bedroom areas, and communicating with the Helping Spirits for guardianship and protection.
This workshop is $50, payable via cash, check, or PayPal (see link to PayPal here). All participants will receive a copy of the lecture, notes, and additional materials!

The Undeparted-- World Premiere of our documentary LIVE on YouTube TONIGHT 9pm EST!

A few years ago, I was asked to help support a documentary on ghosts, spirits, the Dead, and other psychic phenomena. The premise was to research the spiritual activity at a local antique shop, and to have two different healers (with different ages, backgrounds, training, and professional practices) give their impressions independent of each other.

I was intrigued by the methods brought forth by the director, and excited for the possibility of teaching the public about the Beloved Dead; our Ancestors in the Otherworlds.

The Undeparted completed its "pilot" episode back in 2017-2018, and was edited down to ~48 minutes (from over 2 years worth of data!). It has won numerous awards, and I am ecstatic to witness its LIVE premiere in just a few hours.

Please join us LIVE tonight, and help support the hard work, dedication, and sacrifice of time/energy from so many (and yes, that's me in the promo with my rattle)!

This Druid shamanic healing ceremony will honor the holy day of Alban Elfed, the autumnal equinox.

Honoring the Beloved Dead

 On Monday, September 7th, 2020, I opened up my video camera and conducted a Live stream ritual to honor my father. He passed away from a heart attack 10 years ago, which catalyzed one of many shamanic initiatory experiences.

Below is the ~40 minute video ceremony, in which I demonstrate simple techniques to honor and give offerings to ancestors. It includes many funny stories of my Dad's life, too:


If you are interested in creating a funeral ceremony/honoring ceremony for your loved one(s), especially during this pandemic crisis, please contact me. We'll work together to create an individualized healing ritual, either online or in-person with masks.

A most loving review of shamanic healing during Shelter-in-Place!

Many of my reviews and recommendations can be found on my Facebook Page, but here is a lovely one I received online just recently:

"Last month I spent an evening session with Monika in a Zoom chat.. After years of trauma and difficulties plaguing my life I was finally ready to book with her. If you have any doubt as to whether a virtual session works, throw it out the window and book one now.


I was able to relax in my own space which allowed a greater sense of safety for me. I have significant trust issues and past healings had resulted in my needing to help the practitioner instead of myself. With Monika, there were no worries. I was upfront with my experiences so she would understand any hang ups she might encounter. I had set up a quiet area and surrounded myself with items that resonated. After a quick chat to get us both settled and comfortable she got to work. And she had her work cut out for her.

Let me tell you that there was a LOT to deal with. Monika was kind, patient, respectful, and determined. She worked tirelessly with her spirit guides to help me. In her workroom she had set up a representation of me to focus upon and showed the space to me before beginning. While you might think it wouldn't be as impactful without her physically present, it was probably more so for me. Not only could I feel the energy release/movement I honestly forgot that we were in a virtual platform on several occasions. I live several states away from her so physically appearing to a session is difficult for me even without the Quarantine. Being in my own safe space, surrounded by things I connected with made a huge difference and allowed me to open up when I otherwise might have withheld.

As we ended the session I felt lighter and more hopeful than I had in almost two decades. I highly recommend her virtual sessions and definitely endorse her as a powerful healer. I will be scheduling follow up sessions over the next few months to keep the healing work going but I wanted to be sure to say something now.

Book your session. Whether in-person or virtual, you will not regret it. Monika Healing Coyote is worth the investment, and so are you."

Healing CAN happen online and remotely, and I've had an international client base for almost 8 out of my 10 years of public work. Please contact me, and we'll work together for clarity, purification, cord-cutting, soul retrieval, and adaptability during this pandemic!

Druid Shamanic healing ceremony for Midsummer/Solstice!



Hello everyone! Had a bit of a snafu during the Live Recording process, so here's the synopsis of ritual/missing information: Our theme for this ritual is "Empowering the Light!" Summer Solstice is the longest day for the Northern Hemisphere, and is usually celebrated with fire festivals and the gifts of summer food & drink. However, this Solstice energy is complicated by the Ring of Fire/Solar Eclipse, which actually diminishes the Light. Eclipses are very complicated magic, and can occlude the spiritual work (there is a reason why they were feared/worked with differently by Celtic and IE populations).
The ceremony is both a personal healing ceremony and a cultural healing ceremony. We are supporting not only our own energies (i.e., pandemic anxiety, stress, exhaustion, apathy), but ensuring that the causes we support (#PRIDE, #CoronavirusResearch, and #BlackLivesMatter) remain in the forefront of public consciousness.
Join me for this ~1-hr ceremony to heal & empower our Light Bodies, create a mantle of Light for our roles (Advocate, Warrior, Healer, Mystic, Destroyer/Creator), and send energies (under the auspices of Apollo, Medusa, and Papa Legba) to social justice causes in need of support!

Guest post from IndigoOwlWoman

Recently, a student of mine joined in our Advanced Shamanic Working Group this past Sunday, and received a wonderful & inspired message from her Spirits!

I have posted it here, with permission, and you are welcome to follow up with her on Facebook.


Journey with Monika 5/30/2020. Dismemberment. Offering our delicious shredded bits to our guides as we request a personal healing. Asking for insight into these intensely unfolding events the world is experiencing.

"Today I journey to meet with my guides and ask for a personal healing. I ask to be offered an omen for the rest of this year [2020]."

"The drumming track starts and I find myself walking through the dappled woods. I approach my welcoming friend Tree. Heart smiling I offer greetings and I step in and through. I emerge feeling tall and willowy and elegant. I stepped out into a lush green grove warmed with golden sunlight. I saw a small child sitting a short distance away, they were maybe 4 or 5 years old, sitting with their knees pulled up and their arms wrapped around their shins, their chin was tucked. They seemed sad or introspective.

I walked up & went to sit down beside them and as I did I fell back & disintegrated into a pile of ash. My imprint upon the ground laid in the shape of a Thunderbird or an angel. Arms outstretched & slightly overhead. The little one was sitting to my left, tucked beneath my upswept arm alongside my ribs. I was aware of their presence from my place in the earth. I was curious about them. I felt they were some part of my essence.
I notice a group of “people” gathering at my right foot. I’m not sure what they wanted or why they were there. Are they my birth father's people? A quick fleeting thought but before I had a chance to get overly curious about them the youngling suddenly dove into the earth, right into my chest & started rapidly somersaulting in my torso, over & over & over again, we then melded together and leapt out of the earth into bird form. Shooting up into the sky, Golden eagle, flying high into the sky and out over the valley. Soaring in circles high above a happy, vibrant, safe & thriving village that overflowed with love & joy. Golden light & laughter filled the air.
This beautiful village seemingly unaware that not so far off in the distance there was a high wall surrounding & protecting the precious peaceful village. They seemed unconcerned that the entire length of the wall was being bombarded by monstrous chaos. Raging, lunging, clawing, howling demon beasts. Violent churning, black & red swirling chaos that threatened to spill over into the sacred sanctuary...but it didn’t, maybe they knew it couldn’t breech those walls. Maybe they trusted it wouldn’t. Rather than the chaos flowing over the walls it slowly started to harden over. In that way lava does as it cools. The chaos stilled as if it seemingly turned to stone. It felt as if it was sleeping, at rest. Not dead but very still. At this point I stopped circling & descended into the village, immediately morphing into in my owl-human form. Tall, slender & graceful with my gorgeous Owl head. I was met with love & familiarity from the people there and immediately felt surrounded by my ancestors and guides. So much love gathered behind and around me, filling me up. I felt completely Held & Safe. I felt grounded, clear, empowered. My heart was wholly at ease. I was Holy Whole.
The gate at the wall opened and people started walking through. They looked confused, unsure. They rubbed their eyes and faces as if they had been crying or had just woken up. They looked “new” somehow. They looked as if they weren’t sure where they were, as if they just manifested into this new world. Their hearts felt gentle, curious, raw and tender, filled with hope & innocence. I greeted and hugged each being as they stepped through the gate and with each embrace the joy grew immensely. The golden glowing light enveloped & warmed us all and things felt right. Absolutely right. It was beautiful. As people emerged from the hardened stone and stepped through the gate into the garden sanctuary the hardened molten mass was transformed into green rolling hills. Lush & alive. Teeming with life.

When I asked for my omen I was told to remember Owl. That my mantra is Trust.
To Trust the Unfurling. To Trust in my own innate knowing. Trust in my wisdom. Trust the good within myself that also flows in so many truly wonderful people. I mean look how many magnificent beings I know firsthand, wow! there are loads of truly good folks out there.
I was told to trust myself in creating and holding safe space, for self and other. To trust that I can indeed model what it looks like to walk with integrity, love, grace & courage, knowing that I embody true compassion & caring. TRUST!
I had the sense that the chaos outside the wall was intense and alive. That it will churn and morph and feed on itself for sometime to come. Courage. Patience. Endurance. And then there will be a pause of some sort, as fallow fields rest so that new vibrant life can be born.
The world needs those of us who can hold the light steady, those of us who know full well what lives in those shadows. We are a beacon to help guide the way for folks as they pull free from the confusion and layers of programming from a lifetime of believing in the construct. As systems fall away many will be shaken to their core & we can help ground & hold the field while folks find their footing. We are that golden happy village. We are The Sacred Space. We will help hold the grid as the foundations get laid. May we all receive our upgrades and recalibration with ease."


Wow! I am so thankful for the Spirits making Their ways into others' lives, and I am deeply honored to share the wisdom of IndigoOwlWoman. Hail the Kindred and Spirits! 
Aaaaaaaaaoooooooooooooo,

Join me for the next Open Journey class of 2020! We'll be meeting ONLINE, broadcast from my home in Maryland. This group is open to anyone who has interest in learning how to work with the Spirits for personal growth, self-healing, and connection with the Otherworlds. Beginners to experienced Journeyers are welcome!

Our topic changes each month to allow for inspiration via the spirits, planetary movements/pressures, world events, etc. THE TOPIC FOR MAY WILL BE ON CONNECTING WITH BEAR SPIRIT THROUGH ECSTATIC BODY POSTURES!

Our workshop is set up as follows:

  1. Payment, attendance, introductions, announcements (ZOOM link will be sent to paid attendees, as well as the recording afterwards!)
  2. Small lecture on the philosophy, occult technology, and background information of the monthly topic
  3. Short restroom break
  4. Preparation/explanation of Journey
  5. Drumming meditation & sharing of stories (NOTE: Due to the lack of effective audio on Zoom, please ensure that you have your own rattle, drum, YouTube track, or other sonic driving device!)
  6. Thank yous to the Spirits and attendees

The cost is $20 (payable via PayPal at the time of class, see link here). It is helpful for folks to have a journal, a bottle of water/tea/etc., and a small snack next to their online devices.

ATTENTION: This is a monthly beginning-to-intermediate Shamanic Journey group, as well as a place for those that wish a dedicated time/space to interact with their Helping Spirits. The fee is $20, and it is helpful to have at least a basic understanding of Journey techniques beforehand. Due to awful audio feedback issues with online teaching, you MUST be able to meditate with your own rattle, drum, YouTube track, etc.; I will not be able to drum for the class. If you need help, contact me before our class, and we can work together for your first journey!! http://www.healingcoyote.com/2015/06/how-do-i-find-my-own-helping-spirit.htmlhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oh1hzx92agg&t=3s (guided meditation journey)
