Imbolc Druid healing ceremony ONLINE

from the amazing artist, Rachel Santel (click on the image for more info/purchasing)

On Monday, February 3rd, at 7pm, Monika Healing Coyote will be facilitating an Online Shamanic Healing Ceremony via Facebook Live.

This Druid shamanic healing ceremony will help us to move out of the sluggishness of Winter, revitalize our energetic & physical bodies, and work with the Celtic goddess Brigid: patron of inspiration, creativity, healing waters, uplifting fires, and loving compassion (artwork by Rachel Santel, which you can find here).

As we continually work towards healing/preparing/adjusting for 2020 (and the preparation for a contentious Election Year), let us gather around Monika Coyote's fireplace, give offerings to the Spirits, and ask for healing for ourselves, our families, our neighborhoods, and our communities!

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.

For those who have not participated in a Facebook Live event before, the steps are as follows:

  1. Go to "Monika Healing Coyote Shamanism" and ensure that you have "Liked" my Page.
  2. On Monday evening, prepare yourself to participate in your own healing & power/energy retrieval. Whatever you need to do to feel comfortable in your room/home/space, do it. Pajamas, tea, a small snack, snuggling a pet or stuffed animal, 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 7:00pm, 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.
Finally, I am asking for a small donation from each participant for this work; a minimum of $15 (which can be paid online here).

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

Soul Retrieval 3-day training workshop

(c) Monika Healing Coyote, 2020
Workshop from 10am Jan 18th, 2020 through 4pm Jan 20th, 2020

This workshop is open to any/all spiritual healers, leaders, and philosophers who not only have a solid background in active meditation techniques, but who wish to learn the deep, profound nature of the embodied Soul (human, animal, plant, land, etc).

These techniques were originally learned via Sandra Ingerman's lineage of teachings (2010 and again in 2013). After receiving & integrating these intensive lessons from the Spirits, Monika Healing Coyote has facilitated Soul Retrieval for the public community for 10 years. This will be the third round of teachings, and she adds educational aspects from Indo-European folk magic, Western Occultism, and Celtic Druidry. Additionally, she empowers this work with the strict ethical codes from her 16+ years in various health & human services fields (law enforcement, psychology, shamanism, and clergy).

In order to receive a certificate of completion, attendees must attend all three days of this training, including the final ritual on Monday. Sadly, due to the advanced nature of the teachings, attendees must receiving the lessons in person (Skype/Face Time not permitted).

Quick Synopsis of the Workshop:

  • Sat January 18th 2020 and Sun January 19th 2020 (10am to 7:30pm)--Preparing the client for Soul Retrieval, ethical consent, techniques of Soul Retrieval itself, integration work, current topics within the philosophies of Soul Retrieval work, Ethical Guidelines for working with the public.
  • Mon January 20th 2020 (10am to 4pm)-- Main Ritual for Soul Retrieval, ideas for creating/maintaining a healing business in the United States, final thoughts.

The cost of this 3-day workshop is $300, which is payable via cash, check, or PayPal (I can send a request to you via email). For students who have already taken this course and are interested in re-taking it (to update their personal work, to increase their confidence/skill level, etc.), the price is only half ($150). Please email me at lonelycoyote@healingcoyote.com for questions.

I am ecstatic to share this life-changing, miraculous work with you, and to start the new year of 2020 in a profoundly healing way!

Queering your spiritual and magickal practice

(from Wikicommons)
Happy 2020 to all LGBTQIAP+ Queer folx and their allies!

Workshop on Sunday, January 12, 2020, 2pm - 4:30pm

For the first magical/shamanic workshop of the new year, Monika Healing Coyote will be supporting the leadership and teachings of Annie Lynsen, acting High Priest of their Wiccan Coven (see BIO below for more details). This workshop was first presented at Frederick Pagan Pride Day, with high turnout from a wide range of people. Monika Healing Coyote is excited to start 2020 off by supporting as many magical and spiritual practitioners as possible (please send an email if you are interested supporting these works, too)!

For LGBTQIAP+ people, certain "traditional" aspects of various magickal practices may feel somewhat alienating. When spiritual groups and texts lean on myth cycles and ritual aspects focused on fertility and virility and use heteronormative symbolism, it becomes difficult for us to see ourselves in the magick. In this workshop, learn how myth cycles and ritual components can be adapted and viewed through a queer lens to be more all-inclusive and empower everyone, particularly people who are too often marginalized in our society.

The cost is $30 (payable via cash, check, or PayPal at the time of class). It is helpful for folks to bring a journal, a bottle of water/tea/etc., and a small snack.

BIO: Annie Lynsen is a priestess (2nd degree) and serves as Acting High Priest of the Fellowship of the Ancient White Stag, a coven of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel. As a bisexual/pansexual, nonbinary pagan, she employs a queer lens to break down limiting binaries in magickal theory and practice, and advocates for bi-, trans-, non-binary/genderqueer-, queer-, and asexual-visibility and inclusion. She presented a workshop called "The Genderqueer Tree of Life" at the Sacred Space Conference in 2019. Learn more: https://majorarqueerna.com
