We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate and lack. We should not long to return, my friends. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature.

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 — like this sanctuary where I live — 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 the Crash by helping you liberate your daily FLOW rituals, so you can shine like the SUPERNOVA you really are, and change the world while you’re at it.

This dyadic process isn’t proscriptive. You’re not learning what worked for me. Cultivate your rituals around how Flow works for you, your cycles, your biology, while unlearning the colonial systems that disrupt your natural states of being. I’m steeped in a multi-modal approach based in years of successful transformative results. Why? Because Biology scales.

Part of my work involves helping you discover your rhythm + Flow — in your way — by drawing in your genius. Flow is your birthright.

Initiated by life or death circumstance in the womb, again at age 5 and formally through plant medicine at 13, I weave 35+ years of consciousness modality exploration in observing and learning human behavior. We will tap into leading techniques including, Cognitive Behavioral, Positive Psychology, Solution-focused, Humanistic, Transpersonal, as well as Somatic Coaching through breathing and movement.

Oh! And I survived raising two integrated teen femmes in a world that would rather pit us against each other while I struggled 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...

If your health is overburdened with toxic stress. If your nervous system is on tilt. If you find yourself longing to create greater impact your soul incarnated to make but find yourself saying things like “If only I had more time. If only I had more resources. 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 to prevent you from implementing the culture making you came to create.

And...

We will learn how to work under, around and through these systems so that we can come out on the other side initiated, focused, resilient, and liberated to Dream in the Wild.

JEDI Flow Collective and
the Edgewalkers Labyrinth
to Initiated Leadership

The following is my “Venn Diagram” of the spiraling, non-linear journey of the Edgewalkers Labyrinth. The three petals of the trillium flower are further described below. 

Edgewalkers Labyrinth Venn Flower of my process

JEDIs Decolonizing Time

Initiated:
Identifying life events that forever change who we are and supercharge our purpose here and now. Living at the edge, being the bridge between the Deep and the Divine.

Autotelic:
Your inner compass, your outer North Star. The Deep Why, intrinsic motivation, that helps stay with the discomfort in unlearning, for the deep work required of us in this time.

Earth Knowing:
Revive and support indigenous ways of knowing and being in relationship with Earth and the Ancestors. How do you give back, repair, decolonize?

Liberate Your Flow

Reclaim your Birthright:
Reclaiming our Time with Flow as our birthright. Centering Flow in your life.

Devote yourself daily:
Transform the stuckness of an old rut into the new nervous system pathways (neuroplasticity). Developing the mettle (grit, resilience) for the challenges ahead.

Innovate:
Dismantling the old systems and developing the new ones that center Flow as your way of being need innovative ideas and ways of being because dominator culture wasn't made for us.

Dreaming in the Wild

Rest Revolt:
Rest for the Revolution. “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” — Audre Lorde

Wild Idling
(h/t for this similar term from Lianne Raymond): Reconnect with ch’ulel, (chi) the embodied energy of the cosmos, let you mind, heart and sacral free.

Find Your Rhythm:
What is your beat? Your biorhythms, your cycle or creation, your dance? What is the pace of your walk on this Earth?

Walk in Spiral Time... Walk in Beauty...

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 converse with your ancestors through food and traditions to learn Earth’s stories encoded in your very bones. We let go of what’s not serving you so we can Liberate your Flow. We Dream in the Wild, rest. Through this alchemical process we bring you back to re-membering how to journey the Edgewalkers Labyrinth.

This is a School of Mysticism. It’s a multi-year journey of exponential growth. The deeper we go, the higher you’ll fly. Unlearning and decolonizing takes time and focus. Liberating Flow is a process of learning your pace and your rhythms. We will begin with a 3 hour intensive to start where you are and calibrate where you’ll begin.

The $15,000/year (or Pay it Forward level of $18,000 with $3000 towards a scholarship) includes:

      • One (1) dyadic Retreat: life and business review session (3 hrs) to set the focus areas. (Can be broken into 3 sessions if needed.)
      • We’ll calibrate your Rhythm in the bi-weekly 30 minute dyadic (1+1) check-ins.
      • Because these times are all about connecting and collaborating, we meet and fertilize our work in a weekly 60 minute group call.
      • Monthly recorded teachings (Spiraling through Labyrinth: Decolonizing Time, Liberating Flow, Dreaming in the Wild, Initiated Leadership)
      • Quarterly 3 hour online group retreats to compost the past quarter and develop the Hedonic Calendar for the following Quarter (begins at month 4 and continues Quarterly) (recorded replay)
      • Monthly and Quarterly Hedonic Calendaring Framework
      • Group giveback project (support a community project in the Global South, participation on the ground or online support of project to be chosen as a group)
      • Mighty Network group to be seen and heard

Bonuses

      • Flow Time: 90 minute co-working sessions 2 x week (optional)
      • Monthly Cacao Ceremony around the new moon (optional)

 

Initiated Leadership Coaching Certification

I don’t do big launches. I’m growing this container in a very specific way by releasing openings at my pace because each client gets a Retreat Day to enter the Labyrinth.

 There are 2 Openings per month between May and December 2021. 

Book a call to plan your Entry into the Labyrinth today.

Quarterly payment plans are available at no additional charge. Requires a 1 year commitment.

 

If you’re ready to explore this investment in creating a high-Flow life, book a discovery call to learn more and map your Life Wheel. On the call, you’ll receive a Life Wheel reading and we’ll suss out your Flow triggers. No pushy sales tactics. No gimmicks, all heart. Let’s see if we’re a match.

Not quite ready to take that leap…

“Ixchel is a business and leadership strategist who bridges the edgy world of 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.”
