Spring Equinox Breathwork & Sound Bath

Who’s ready for Spring and all the fresh new energy it brings? I know I am! 

We’re in a time of major transition on our beautiful Mother Earth. With this important shift, I’ve been feeling the pull to invite my soul’s energy back into my physical body. We are being asked to more fully inhabit our bodies and allow a higher frequency to reside within. “As within, so without.” This is how we begin to create a vibration of harmony and peace that then becomes available to all around us.

In order to do so, it’s necessary to let go of the stored trauma and stuck emotions that keep us from reaching our highest potential. Even if we’re doing the work on a conscious level, which so many of us are, we need a way to clear this stuck energy on a deeper, soul level. It’s the perfect time with the Spring Equinox to shed the old programming and prepare ourselves for this powerful, new rebirth!

If you’re feeling this pull, Valerie Bachman and I invite you to join us on Sunday, March 20 on the Spring Equinox to take a deep, sacred dive into this work. Using the power of sound vibration and intentional breath, we will take our physical bodies on a journey where our souls are ready to go. Each individual’s process will be unique. And we will be there holding sacred space and guiding you every step of the way.

A State of Heart

So often we hear, “It’s a state of mind.” But what I’ve found is that the mind can only take us so far. If something’s missing in your life and you can’t seem to find your happy place, my bet is that it’s time to shift your “state of heart.”

Cultural norms and daily pressures can lead us into daily routines that may serve us in the short-term, but rarely lead us into true joy. I recently read a quote in Martha Beck’s latest book, “The Way of Integrity” that resonated with me – “If something’s not working, don’t do it harder” and expect a better outcome. We’re told if we just work “hard enough” we can accomplish all of our goals. But the real question is what are your TRUE goals? Not what society tells you that you need, but what really brings you to your happy place? When you break it down, it’s usually something pretty simple. Peace. Time with my family. Laughter. Feeling the sun on my face. What is it for you? The only way to find out is to get still, quiet the mind…and ask your heart.

2020 – It’s Not for the Faint of Heart. Are You Ready?

2020 is already shaping up to be a year full of shake-up’s and surprises. It’s up to us to find our anchor point, stay grounded, and ride the waves of change. We can be the calm in the storm. And…we can be the lightning bolt! Different situations will call for different actions. We will need to be courageous, and vulnerable. Be true to your inner compass and you’ll always know what to do.

I sat in silence on January 1st and asked for guidance for the coming year. This is what appeared:

My cards for 2020. 🌟🔮🌟

Master Jesus: Forgiveness. You are on the path of light, love and forgiveness. Father healing is possible at this time.
Golden Solar Dragon: Helps you stand in your masculine power with WISDOM. Let your DNA be reprogrammed and light codes activated. Become an inspired leader.
Share Your Voice: Come out of the cave. Persecution. Expression.

It feels like 2020 is a time to Heal the Patriarchy. With forgiveness, love, authenticity.

It’s time to free ourselves from past persecutions and shine in our fullest light. The world needs us. And the time is now.

Time To Stop Playing Small

We are more powerful than we realize. It’s time to remember who we are and why we came here. We are needed and the time is now.

Soul-Hive Sessions

Soul-Hive Sessions

Soul-Hive Sessions Flyer - generic location


Every Friday morning * 9:30-Noon * Austin TX * Starting January 2019

Learn who you REALLY are.

Remember your sovereignty.

Answer the question…WHAT AM I CALLED TO DO?


Let me give you a little back story here. For the past few years I have been receiving powerful messages, nudges and hard-to-ignore coincidences regarding Mary Magdalene. I have a deck of cards at home called Keepers of the Light. For the past year, almost every time I pull a card from here, it is this one:



You have something important to share. Follow the inner call. Don’t let anything stop you.

I do have an inner call. It’s been there since I can remember, being reinforced more with every passing year. After becoming a Life Coach and a new mother, I heard a whisper in my ear that my company would be called “Soul-Hive” and my calling was crystalized: to bring seekers together and empower them, making the magical real, bridging the space between mystical and practical, and collectively raising the consciousness on this planet.

Since then, I’ve led retreats and workshops and had countless one on one sessions with seekers around the world. It’s all been delicious, and it’s all led me to this. An ongoing, in-person, divinely led, weekly series of Soul-Hive Sessions for women here in Austin.


I have decided there are just too many juicy topics to cover in one stand alone workshop or weekend retreat. And for me, the only meaningful way to do this is by creating a container for us to come together face to face, heart to heart, with inspiring, open-minded people. A place where we can be curious, get raw and go deep, building a hive of sorts, buzzing with new ideas and collective shifts that benefit all.

If you’ve worked with me before, you know that we never know just where we’ll end up once we get started. So I am creating a container, a continuum of curiosity, so that we can build each week to the next. There’s sooooo much to talk about. Each week we’ll have a new topic/exercise/situation to examine. Some might appeal more than others. That’s natural. Come and go as you see fit. The idea here is to let your inner compass be your guide.


Here are the topics for January-March 2019 Soul-Hive Sessions.

9:30-noon each Friday starting Jan 4. (Some topics may change as needed. We will be in the flow of the group and highest energy in the moment.)

(You will receive a message with the location once you sign up.) Wherever we meet, a sacred space will be created where we can soak up the nourishing light around us.

I am so incredibly excited about this. I can’t wait to see what happens as we grow together.

Is your courage stronger than your fear?

If so, I invite you to step into this great adventure with me. 

With pure heart and soul,



Please feel free to email me with any questions.

Shante Ishta


Have you ever heard of the Native American practice of Shante Ishta? It’s the single eye of the heart. The direct path to heart-brain harmony. With all the disconnection and disappointment currently in our society, it seemed an appropriate tool to learn in our latest Love and Kindness Circle.

It’s a fairly simple, and extremely powerful, 3 step process:

1. Feel deeply into your heart center. Put your hand over your heart and breathe your attention fully into this space.

2. Intentionally slow your breath to approximately 5 second inhales/exhales. Continue at that calming pace. This tells your body it is completely safe and allows your cells to start working at their optimum level.

3.) Focus on something you are grateful for, or deeply care about. Care, gratitude, compassion, appreciation.

The more you do this, it starts to change your body for the better. The effects last for 6 hours after you do Shante Ishta. And if you do this practice for 3 days straight, it actually starts to alter your cells.

This is only a brief description, but the next time you start feeling anxious or worried, I hope it gives you something to play with to bring you back to your highest self. This beautiful heart connection is our one shared reality.

Community Healing Circle at Soma Vida

Community Healing Circle - Soma Vida - April 2018

Who’s ever walked into a room before and felt an instant icky feeling? Or felt absolutely drained after talking with a gloomy coworker? Conversely, have you ever had a conversation with someone for what you thought was about 10 minutes and you realize it was well over an hour? Where did that boost come from??

Saturday, April 7th at 6pm at Soma Vida, I’ll be presenting…

“Energy Vampires & Energy Angels – Understanding Effects of the Frequencies All Around Us”

This brief class will help you understand how the energy around us can physically affect our own, and what you can do to best manage it.

I’ll also be offering card readings after the presentation.

Join us for this and other in-depth opportunities to experience some excellent psychics and healers first hand. Suggested donation of $20+ grants you access to a 25 minute session with the healer of your choice. Proceeds benefit several local Austin nonprofits and charities.
