Hola! Ixchel here (sounds like ee-shell)
Daily Rituals for Thriving on a Transitioning Planet.
*Our JEDIs are working at the intersection of Justice, Emergence, Decolonizing, 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.”
“Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, Grow, Grow.” — The TalmudYet through conscious daily practice in the company of many angels in differing forms 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 while being ok with the discomfort of dismantling systems on the daily. 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 Latine (Mayan, French and a wee bit o’Scottish ancestors) to serve as Vice Mayor of Petaluma, California, I’ve run for Congress and I’ve mentored other BIPOC women who were running for boards or 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 business development and intuitive-based action and I bring it all to my work with change-making woman+ leaders.
“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” — Alice Walker quoting June JordanI also hold a Masters degree in Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness 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 writing, working and 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: decolonizing time, Flow states, plants + planets, ancestral ways, dharmic movements, daily reverence rituals, feminism, political consciousness and Mayan Cosmovision. 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 centering justice, emergence, decolonizing, interconnectedness. I view the world, our bodies and our Work as emergence. I can help you dance with the cycles and flow in your life, helping you deepen your leadership capacities from this space of integration and interconnectedness too.

The Buzz at Ixchel Rainbow Living
Beyond being an amazing Nicaraguan wildlife sanctuary for sloths, porcupines, possums, boas and tree snakes, Blue Morphos, hummingbirds, native stingless bees, colorful iridescent orchid bees, giant bumblebees, and more…
I’m only 4’10” but my medicine bag of wisdom is like a tardis. It’s bigger on the inside. We are utilizing neuroscience and ancestral practices to guide JEDI leaders, 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.
This isn’t proscriptive. You’re not learning what worked for me. We’re structuring your rituals around how Flow works for you, your cycles, your biology. Why? Be cause Biology scales. Part of my work involves helping you discover that, in your modality and drawing on your typologies. I also utilize 35 years of modality observing and learning human behavior. Oh, and I survived raising two integrated teen femmes in a world that would rather pit us against each other while struggling to survive in a body that didn’t recognize itself (PMDD is nightmare I’ve laid to rest). I got you.
TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS BY…
Dreaming our way out of a toxic culture emblematic of late-stage capitalism, white supremacist colonialism, big pharma and big ag (that cuts us off from the medicine and food given to us by Earth), and the burnout, dis-ease, addiction, brain fog, autoimmune issues and general unmitigated stress that these uninitiated systems create.
WHAT WE'RE FACING TODAY...
IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.
We will learn how to rest and listen to your rhythms, work under, around and through these systems so that we can come out on the other side initiated, focused, prepared, and liberated to Dream in the Wild.
JEDI Flow Collective
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 decolonize your time. 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 Flow Formula.
It’s best to work in seasons of 3 months. We will begin with a 3 hour intensive to start where you are and calibrate where you’ll begin. The 3 months includes:
- One (1) dyadic intensive life and business review sessions (3 hrs) to set the focus areas. ($1500 ala carte value)
- We’ll calibrate in the Bi-Weekly 1:1 check-ins. ($4000 ala carte value)
- Because these times are all about connecting and collaborating, we meet and fertilize our work in a weekly group call. ($2000 ala carte value)
- Monthly and Quarterly Planning Frameworks ($800 ala carte value)
- Mighty Network group ($300, but networking is priceless!)
- My 3 month VIP package is $3000.
- 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.)
“Ixchel is a business and life strategist who bridges the world of high level politics and business with 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.”
