Hi! I'm Ixchel Love (sounds like ee-shell)
I’m business and life strategist, an Indigenous WebDeva, and author of Buzzing Blooms for Bees. I help planetary leaders get out of self-denial and into powerful, J.E.D.I.* Flow.
I offer Business and Life Strategies to Calibrate the Five Elements of Your Alchemical Flow Formula™ — Daily Rituals for Thriving on a Transitioning Planet.
*My JEDIs are working at the intersection of Justice, Ecology, Diversity, and Interconnection in the post-patriarchial global network of planet-centered businesses, politics, and NGOs/non-profits.
“Body and soul, I am more of a battlefield than a human being.”
But my first twenty years I learned it wasn’t safe to be seen as I fought to survive in a world where I felt I wasn’t invited and didn’t belong.
“Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, Grow, Grow.”
— The Talmud
Yet through conscious daily practice over the next twenty years I discovered strength in surrounding myself with the community of others (including people, plants and pollinators) that helped me feel a sense of belonging — re-membering how to feel safe in my skin and embedded in the natural world. Finding that alchemical gold buried deep within the hard rocks of violence, abuse and neglect became my resilience superpower.
I know all too well what it means to fly too close to the sun and burnout because of it:
I was the first in my family to go to college (while also a single mom of two by the time I was 18), I was the first Latina (of Mayan ancestors) to serve as Vice Mayor of Petaluma, California, I’ve run for Congress and I’ve mentored other women who were running for office or running their own business . . .
I know what happens when we go go go and I know what’s possible when we take 15 minutes a day (or less!) to breathe, pause and reflect.
Which is why I have 35 years of practice in consciousness exploration, meditation, feminist-based self-development and intuitive-based action and I bring it all to my work with change-making womxn+ leaders.
“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
— Alice Walker quoting June Jordan
I also hold a Masters degree in Philosophy and Religion from the California Institute of Integral Studies (with a focus on Integral Ecology) and a B.A. in Women+ Gender Studies from Mills College, and a Permaculture Design Certificate. PLUS, I am Fellow of the Leadership Institute for Just and Resilient Communities.
I am currently on writing sabbatical, sharing space at a native stingless bee sanctuary on unceded lands of the indigenous Matagalpa in the highlands of Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
My zone of genius is at the intersection of: plant-based medicine and ancestral ways, Kundalini Yoga, daily reverence rituals, feminism, political consciousness and Mayan Cosmology (decolonizing time). When you work with me, I bring you to this intersection through intuitive-listening, deep experience and practical wisdom as we Dream in the Wild.
“Wake up! If you are sleeping, wake up!”
— Don Alejando Wakatel Utiw (Wandering Wolf),
Grand Elder of the Mayan Nations
Which means: I have developed a keen sense of interconnectedness. I view the world, our bodies and our Work as ecologies. I can help you address the beautiful messes in your life, body or leadership capabilities from this space of integration and interconnectedness too.

Utilizing bleeding edge neuroscience and ancient dharmic practices, I help heart-centered changemakers, who may be overwhelmed, compassion fatigued and facing burnout by helping you cultivate your daily FLOW rituals, so you can shine like the SUPERNOVA you really are, and change the world while you’re at it.
Together we can do this by…
addressing toxic late-stage capitalism, colonialism, the industrial food system and the burnout, dis-ease, addiction, brain fog, autoimmune issues and general unmitigated stress that these Systems create.
What we’re facing today…
If you’re struggling with your health. If your nervous system is overburdened. If you find yourself longing to make the difference your soul incarnated to make but find yourself saying things like “If only I had more time. If only I had more money. If only I felt better.” I want you to know one thing:
It’s. Not. Your. Fault.
There are social systems and structures in place that are designed to keep you exactly where you are, precisely so that you cannot make the changes you came to make.
And to Calibrate the Five Elements of Your Alchemical Flow Formula™
I can show you how to work under, around and through these systems so that you can come out on the other side healthy, whole, empowered and free to get on with your Soul’s Mission.
The Five Elements of Alchemical Flow
Start Where You Are. We start with what’s working. You didn’t arrive at your current success by accident, but through your genius. We identify the systems and structures that are still holding you back. We make space for Dreaming in the Wild. We mine your stories for gold. We converse with your ancestors through food and traditions. We let go of what’s not serving you. Through this alchemical process we bring you back to re-membering your Elemental Form.
We work in 6 month blocks. We will begin with a 3 hour intensive to start where you are and calibrate where you’ll begin with the Five Elements of your Alchemical Flow Formula™. The 6 months includes:
- Two (2) 1:1 intensive life and business review sessions (3 hrs each) to set the focus areas. ($3000 value)
- We’ll calibrate in the Bi-Weekly 1:1 check-ins. ($7800 value)
- Because these times are all about connecting and collaborating, we meet and fertilize our work in a monthly group retreat day. ($3900 value)
- Monthly and Quarterly Planning Frameworks ($500 value)
- Custom astro-herbal formula recommendation ($300 value)
- Mayan Time bi-weekly Horoscopes to support these times ($300 value)
- Daily Journal Prompts ($200 value)
- Mighty Network group (Networking is priceless!)
- My 6 month VIP package is valued at $16,000. Book today for 6 months for $6000. You save because a booked out calendar is worth my focused time. Whereas an open calendar means I’m hustling. Hustling for clients (unpaid hours) means I have to charge more per hour to fill hours needed to meet my budget. I have a revolving number of seats. When the seats are filled the Book Button turns to a Waitlist Button.
‡ (Day rates begin at $550/hr to $3000 for an all-day, 6 hour intensive. h/t to Darla Antoine for the feminist thinking of pricing offers to be sustainable)
Breathe with the Cosmos
In the Air Element, you’ll learn how to create your unique daily practice of connecting to your Higher Consciousness through breathwork and meditation.
The ancient yogic practice of Kundalini Yoga (as taught by many) will help you gain clarity for your path and help tap you into Universal Flow so you can:
Intuitive Ancestral Ways
In the Earth Element, you’ll learn how to live like our ancestors did before late-stage capitalism.
Utilizing behavioral psychology, with my unique blend of decolonization work, you’ll learn how to incorporate real food and whole nutrition, identify (and let go of) destructive patterns that dampen your intuition. You’ll learn to identify and interrupt behaviors meant to keep you in line with capitalist patriarchy.
In this Element you’ll learn how to:
- Access your intuition to guide your food choices
Dance with the Cosmos
In the Fire Element you’ll learn a movement practice designed to calibrate your energy for laser focus and success. Learn how to move in Flow with the Rhythm of the Cosmos and challenge yourself to sweat all while gaining mental and physical strength. You’ll also learn how to vitalize your energy centers, your 10 bodies (includes: the physical body, three mental bodies, and six energy bodies) and to clear your glandular and lymphatic systems of what is no longer needed . . . all to prepare you for your highest potential and vibration. Nurture your body and soul (instead of Doing-It-All at the expense of body and soul).
You Are a Living Prayer
Water Element: When our hearts and minds are in coherence our very actions and thoughts bring the world into being. This alignment of energy calls upon the power of Grace which is beyond space and time.
There is no spiritual bypass on this highway. By discovering your hidden agendas (self-sabotaging patterns) in your shadow you are able to rewrite the stories and patterns that have kept you from feeling bountiful, blissful and beautiful inside. Liberation from her wounds. We do the work of Decolonization because we must go back (to the Wild) to move forward.
Aether Element: The Universe is made up of light, vibration, sound and silence. Through a practice of deep listening and tuning in to what’s below the surface with consciousness and attention, intuition develops. This resets the nervous system to establish a more discerning response to life.
“Ixchel is a business and life strategist who bridges the world of high level politics and business and the spirit realm:
where we come from, and where we need to tap into in order to be the most POWERFUL LEADERS we can be.
If you’re ready to take a step back and look at
what your ELEMENTAL FLOW is
(and what distracts you, and what you need to let go of,
and what you need to claim)…
and leave behind unsustainable patterns, and other stuff you subconsciously do to sabotage yourself and lessen the impact you make…
as well as healing the trauma and fatigue that comes from being a leader and trailblazer in a world that moves quickly
(too quickly some times)…
Ixchel will offer you the sacred space, wisdom and tangible rituals to guide you to peak flow states – so you can
go out into the world, making your biggest impact
no longer tapped out and scattered,
but filled with renewed energy, deep focus and JOY.
You owe it to yourself.”
