Inner Guidance

Inner Guidance


You can learn to make every decision from a deep place of knowing, a place beyond logic and reason, a place that isn’t bound by space and time, a place that knows what is best for all concerned. While it may be called by many different names – Deep Knowing, Intuition, Higher Self, or Omnipotent Self – I simply call it Inner Guidance.

Inner Guidance provides you the ability to always be at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing. It’s both part of how to live a more source/spiritually based life, and it’s essential to manifesting in the physical. Our ability to actualize or manifest anything is partially dependent on our ability to know what to say, where to be, what to do, and what decisions to make.
If you lived following your Inner Guidance . . . What would be possible? What would your life be like? What if you had the highest wisdom available to you at all times?



Our retreats focus on facilitating experiential learning of how your Higher Self uniquely delivers deep inner knowing to your conscious mind and body. Get to know how you personally and specifically, internally and externally, perceive Inner Guidance. Know it so well that you can distinguish it from any other voice, thought, picture or feeling inside or outside yourself. This is true empowerment: to be aligned with spirit, in divine right action in every moment.

Almost everyone is following Inner Guidance much, much less than they think….and are missing out on the everyday miracles that occur when we know and act on our intuition. On our retreats, you will discover just how often you are not living from Inner Guidance and just how different your life could be if you followed it more.

But you can activate your reliance on Inner Guidance and cultivate a deeper and more profound relationship with your Higher Self. We teach about accessing your Higher Self for big important decisions that you know will transform your life. But perhaps more importantly, we teach about how to use Inner Guidance in ordinary, seemingly mundane, situations; and this will change your life forever in unexpected and delightful ways!!!
On or after retreat, with a clearer connection to Inner Guidance, some marry or divorce, discover and begin to live their life purpose, quit or start a job, find a new home, all with a sense of ease and clear knowing what is best for them. Others excel in sales, find the perfect job, create more love and ease in relationships, heal disease, create more abundance, or even find their soulmate. Life just gets easier when you are learning how to know and act from your Higher Self, following your Inner Guidance.

With this higher form of intuitive decision making, it is possible to know the truth about any decision, with absolute certainty, all the time.



Our ultimate intention is for you to develop the trust and faith to follow your Inner Guidance, with confidence and ease, all the time. On all our retreats there are detailed teachings on how to cultivate a deeper and more conscious relationship with Inner Guidance. But that is just the warm up. We invite participants to not just form or deepen their relationship with their Higher Self, but to actually follow Inner Guidance in every moment during the retreat. As such, it’s not just an intellectual teaching, it’s a real world experience with a real world feedback loop. There is no better way to learn something than practice and marinating in it.

To ignite the process, on most retreats we go to Sacred Sites – Earth vortexes of power – that amplify our ability to discern and perceive our Inner Guidance. Guidance is louder, clearer and more obvious in these sites and this magnification teaches us how we perceive our Higher Self in ways we wouldn’t learn in our normal fast paced lives. On our retreats that are virtual, or not in earth Sacred Sites, we create a Shamanic Container, which has the same amplification effect on access to Higher Self.



Connecting to your Higher Self creates more ease, more grace, and limits drama and unnecessary challenge, in every aspect of life. Wherever you apply it, you will see results.

When people are immersed in Inner Guidance – learning to connect more with, and act from, their Higher Self – it is commonplace to see huge changes in their lives. We have countless stories from participants in all of these areas.

–Knowing your life purpose
–Clear knowing about beginning or ending a relationship
–Deciding a career path, to take or quite a job
-Finding a partner (or soulmate if you believe in soulmates)
-Knowing Truth vs lies
– Healing oneself or staying healthy through various clear choices
– Improved business decisions about whom to do business with or how to make a sale
–Better relating with others

Above is a small list among infinite possibilities. Some of the most important results come from mundane everyday decisions that don’t fall into these obvious life changing decisions. Each little decision we make in life leads us closer to our goals or further away. And these seemingly unimportant smaller decisions could be life changing if we make them from Inner Guidance.

What important decision do you need to make that would benefit from clear knowing of what is in the highest good for all?
When we connect with Inner Guidance, synchronicities and manifestation happen quickly and more easily, life changes course, and dreams do come true.

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

Ain’t love grand? (Of course it is!)

Spiritual teachers of almost every lineage (as well as therapists and coaches) direct people to love themselves and to love what is, but seldom offer any concrete means to accomplish this monumental and most important feat.

So it is no wonder that most of us are still suffering the heartbreak of falling in and out of love with ourselves (and what is happening around us in every moment). But what if we could sustain this ever elusive love, always and forever?

Imagine what life would be like if you loved yourself fully and unconditionally. What if you were in love with everything and everyone, including all parts and aspects of yourself, in every moment. This means the shadow parts, the wounded parts, illusions, as well as your golden shadow, your beauty and power. All of you!

All illusion and separation, which includes self-criticism, fears, doubts, guilt and shame, can permanently melt away through the power of love.
But we aren’t talking about the kind of love that most people associate with the word love. We are talking about that so-often-celebrated slightly-out-of-reach idea of Unconditional Love. But what is Unconditional love? And what is it not?

The Greeks had 8 words for love; Sanskrit has 96, and yet English has 1. No wonder we get so confused about what love really is (and is not).

What is Unconditional Love (and What is It Not)?
True Unconditional Love is not a feeling or thought, doesn’t come and go, isn’t born and doesn’t die, and has nothing to do with what you like, what you are attracted to, or what you condone or want. It has nothing to do with romance, and people don’t fall in or out of it. It’s different than marital, fraternal, erotic, and other kinds of love.

Unconditional Love is a universal love that doesn’t judge or distinguish, compare or contrast or evaluate or measure. Those are realms of the mind and emotion.

Unconditional Love is Infinite, always has been, and always will be. It’s a spiritual kind of love. It’s “unconditional;” It literally has no conditions on what is loved.

For most, it’s a new experience to discover this kind of love and can be challenging to understand and accept at first. For all, experiencing this kind of love changes your life forever!

Unconditional Love Brings More Wisdom/Discernment
With the practice of Unconditional Love comes a deep peace, but you do not become a doormat. In fact, your discernment is enhanced and becomes crystal clear. When we love ourselves, there is a Truth that emerges & guides our lives. Loving your shadow heals and resolves all obstacles to living from the deep wisdom of your higher-self. It’s not necessarily an easy path, as loving your shadows can be uncomfortable, but it’s what they need to fully resolve – and the payoff is the deep wisdom, and true lasting peace that resides in clarity.

As we practice Unconditional Love, our boundaries become well defined and expressed. Our ability to know and speak authentic “yes’s” and “no’s” becomes clear and articulated. Our life purpose becomes clear. Love heals anything in the way of the Truth and anything in the way of your soul’s most authentic expression. It reveals wisdom and deep knowing. This is what we call “the Flow” or The Truth or Inner Guidance. When you live this way, life becomes a continuous stream of miracles.

Avoiding Spiritual Bypassing
Replacing our wounds with the “feeling” of love doesn’t resolve anything, but merely bypasses the wound and replaces it with the temporary sensation or feeling of love. Essentially nothing has changed other than your current state. Unconditional Love is the way to truly bring love to your wounds, rather than pushing your pain down and replacing it with the good feelings of love. When we do this properly, the process often temporarily amplifies our experience of our wounds, which isn’t always comfortable or pleasant. But this Love Warrior practice brings to our wounds what they have always needed, our Unconditional Love, and they can therefore finally resolve, heal, empty and dissolve.

Our Mission: Love
Our mission is to transmit this Unconditional Love to you so that it heals and awakens you to the love that you are. When you are on retreat with us or in a private Shamanic Coaching session, we teach you the process for cultivating Unconditional Love in your own being. We call it The Oneness Method. When you fully realize Unconditional Love (and it is readily possible), you are deeply connected with your humanity and your divinity – ultimately in Oneness with All That Is. All the confusion, shame, separation melts away, and you realize whole-heartedly, you are the One you have been seeking.

The Oneness Experience

The Oneness Experience & The Oneness Method

Experiencing Oneness is a multidimensional experience that can both heal the wounds of our humanity and restore our connection to our divinity. The Oneness Experience, at an individualized level, can resolve our human pain and wounds in a way that restores a healthy clear psyche through which manifestation is natural and easy. The Oneness Experience, at its most infinite, is about being one with All That Is, everything and everyone that has ever existed or ever will exist, Unity in Divinity. The Oneness Method, which I will introduce you to shortly, is a process by which you can manifest anything through resolving wounds; and/or it’s a method by which you can wake up out of the illusion of material reality being what you need and into Unity with All That Is.

So here is a paradox . . . The Oneness Experience has two stages*:
   1) The Individualized Oneness Experience
   2) The Infinite Oneness Experience.

(*disclaimer: There really aren’t two stages but it is helpful for understanding – more on that later.)
These two distinct (but not actually distinct) stages can occur at different times, or can also occur as one, at the same time. Let’s break this down so the mind can follow (and then dissolve).



The Individualized Oneness Experience (Stage One)
At its most basic level, the Individualized Oneness Experience is about merging with and being one with everything you perceive inside yourself – all the aspects of yourself. Another way of describing it to say its being One with all aspects of your humanity.

The aspects of your humanity, whether negative or positive, that are calling for the Individualized Oneness Experience are:
-emotions (fears, anger, sadness, shame, guilt and all other derivations)
-and all other aspects of a “personal” self

Stage One, The Individualized Oneness Experience, is where/when you have released all resistance to what is present in your current reality, inside and outside yourself. You are One with your what it is to be human in the moment of now. In this state you have closed the gap between that which is observing your experience, and the experience itself. You become One with you. There is no separation and no inner observer (thought) to comment on what is happening. You have become unified with yourself. This could be for a second, a minute, an hour, days, weeks, months or a lifetime. It doesn’t matter how long you have the experience, the experience will change you forever.

Once you realize the Individualized Oneness Experience, you are already in the process of awakening into what’s next . . .

The Infinite Oneness Experience (Stage Two)

Stage Two of The Oneness Experience, The Infinite Oneness Experience, includes all of Stage One, which is when you have released all resistance to what is present in your current reality. You are in Oneness with yourself, one with your humanity. Now, for Stage Two. Given that you have attained the Individualized Oneness Experience, now something miraculous and magical can happen. (And yet it’s not within your control because the “you” that would control it isn’t present.)

At this point, a portal or doorway can open into unity with All That Is. The Oneness with all parts of yourself becomes Oneness with the singularity of the universe. When this happens the Infinite Oneness Experience is present. Now you are both in Oneness with all of your humanity AND with all of your divinity. There is no separation between you and anything else. This is awakening to your True Nature, unity with All That Is, your infinite nature. . . ( I have simply run out of words to explain the unexplainable, but you get the picture.)

Their Really Aren’t Two Stages
Ok, now that you understand the Individual Oneness Experience and the Infinite Oneness Experience – let’s address that disclaimer above that indicated “there really aren’t two stages.” The reality is there is actually no distinction between different kinds of Oneness. If you enter into the fullness of Stage One (Individual Oneness), you are actually in Stage Two (Infinite Oneness). Oneness is Oneness.
However, I make the distinction of two stages because when a person is deep in Stage One – but not fully realized in it yet – their experience will be similar to what I have described as Stage One. But it’s actually not Oneness (yet). There are still bits and pieces of separation in their experience. Yet it can feel like Oneness (until you experience True Oneness – Stage Two) so I have created these two stages to help people understand what they are experiencing along the way.



So now begs the question, “How can I realize The Oneness Experience?

I have developed an approach I call The Oneness Method. It facilitates actualizing both of these seemingly paradoxical aspects of Oneness – humanity (Individual Oneness) and divinity (Infinite Oneness).

I call it The Oneness Method because it’s one method for accomplishing a variety of results and has infinite applications, depending on your intention. For example, The Oneness Method enables you to manifest whatever you intend. When The Oneness Method is used to manifest, it takes you into deep intimacy with all your human losses, wounds, conditioning and trauma that is blocking your manifestation. This intimacy with your humanity heals and resolves your wounds thereby clearing the way for manifestation of all your material needs. This can be accomplished without even reaching the Individual Oneness Experience fully, but in the process itself. While this process can clear any obstacles to manifestation, when it deepens into realizing the Infinite Oneness Experience, it wakes you up out of the illusion of separation (the illusion where we think we need to manifest anything) and into the pureness of our divinity. It’s one method with a variety of results all the way up to Oneness with All That Is.

The Individual Oneness Method (Our Humanity)
If you want to heal and resolve your wounds, trauma, conditioning, fears, doubts, insecurities, physical illness, shame guilt, sadness, anger, reactivity, non beneficial thoughts or other debilitating dis-ease, The Oneness Method will deliver. If you want to manifest or actualize anything into material reality, The Oneness Method is an integral part of my proven Manifestation Process. The Oneness Method is also an essential part of my model for cultivating a more potent relationship with your Higher Self.

The Infinite Oneness Method (Our Divinity)
Now, if you want to dissolve the egoic hold on your experience of reality and instead fully awaken and experience Oneness with All that Is, unity with everything and your infinite nature, practice The Oneness Method. This is how you wake up!


One method for all applications – which eventually, no matter what the application, leads to the Infinite Oneness Experience!

The Oneness Method is a simple, but not necessarily easy, approach with just a few steps for creating the Individual Oneness Experience (Humanity) and the Infinite Oneness Experience (Divinity). There are different subtle nuances to how to apply The Oneness Method depending on your intention. But the basic methodology is the same no matter what you are seeking.

I have shared The Oneness Method with thousands of people individually and in groups with awe-inspiring results. Join me for a retreat or private shamanic coaching session and experience The Oneness Method for yourself. Miracles of Oneness await you.


Mystical Shamanism

Mystical Shamanism

What I call “Mystical Shamanism” is the way that I define the teachings that I offer – the pathless path that I walk. It is a “unified paradox.” (Now, that’s a brain bender.) Mystical Shamanism is the full awakening into the truth that we are simultaneously 3-dimensional human beings and multi-dimensional spiritual beings. We are divinity having a human experience.  

Yet for most of us, our divinity and our humanity feel like very separate aspects of reality. On the one hand, in our humanity, we are born and we will die. We are finite, temporary, separate, individual and everything matters.  On the other hand, in our divinity, we were never born and we will never die. We are infinite, everlasting, undifferentiated and nothing matters.

Our humanity and our divinity seem mutually exclusive and paradoxical. But, truly, they are not. Fully embodying these two aspects of our journey is essential to our health, well being and ultimately our awakening. We are here to fully realize and embody what it is to be a human on earth, and at the same time what it is to be divinity (All That Is) with timeless multi-dimensional awareness. Remember that “unified paradox” I spoke of?

On all of my retreats and sessions, I endeavour to take people on a journey into the precise pinpoint place where our divinity and humanity meet. This is the journey of Mystical Shamanism. Mystical is our divinity and Shamanism is our humanity.  Mystical Shamanism fully embodied as a “unified paradox” is the Oneness Experience, the place where our divinity and our humanity meet.

SHAMANISM (Our Humanity)
The “Shamanism” aspect belongs to the realm of “perception.” Anything the mind can discern into different qualities or have a thought about. Anything quantifiable that can be perceived with the senses or the mind. This includes all astral experience (the astral is just another perceived dimension). This includes all the siddhis (spiritual powers):

Psychic powers
Talking to a rock an animal or an ascended master
Shape Shifting, Being in Two Places at Once, Invisibility, Teleportation
Healing an old wounds and body parts
Transmutation of elements of consciousness into new forms
Alchemy. . .lead into gold  
Turning Confusion into clarity

Plant medicine journeys


MYSTICISM (Our Divinity)
The Mystical aspect points to the ineffable. It’s the ability to cross veils into “apperception.” A place of “no mind.”  Total divine absorption. The dissolution of the self (individual locus of identity) into the Self as God – where there is no self and no god, apperception (another brain bender).  Here are a few descriptions to describe the indescribable:

No separate consciousness witnessing anything
No ego identity
No evidence of anything
The singular (without another)
Ability to be in Oneness in apperception
Pure Unconditional Love with no subject and no object
Pure Divinity
Pure Presence


Mystical shamanism is wholeness. It’s where the “as above” meets the “so below.”  Place where humanity and divinity meet. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Mystical Shamanism is the pathless path of The Great Paradox. Here Everything matters and Nothing matters (another brain bender – another portal into the Self).

Plant Medicine Ayahuasca

Using Ayahuasca Plant Medicine on a Shamanic Journey

Using plant medicine, such as Ayahuasca, DMT, or psilocybin, has become very popular in western culture in the last few years, and for good reason. Ceremony with these extraordinary medicines can change one’s life, expand one’s consciousness, show you “God,” or even facilitate the death of the ego. But there are limitations if you are on the path to fully waking up – and maintaining that awareness in everyday life.

Many people ask if Sacred Voyages offers Ayahuasca retreats on Maui or Mount Shasta. While we have nothing against Ayahuasca Retreats, our retreats are plant medicine-free. Our intention is to give you a multidimensional life changing experience that is similar to Ayahuasca, but without the medicine. Why? Because awakening should be unconditional. Understanding how to tap into multidimensional consciousness anytime, anywhere. This is where the real adventure begins!


Whether you use plant medicine or not, there is a world of multidimensional consciousness that awaits you in the subtle reality. Right here! Right now! May your voyage lead you to a fully awakened life, in every moment.



  • We support you to wake up out of the trance you are in – into full experience of reality, in a way that you know 100% it was real and it was you. No doubt. No questions. Full ownership. This can happen with Ayahuasca but often doesn’t.
  • We provide you the opportunity to be able to recreate your mystical experiences without the use of external substances or medicine. You are a multidimensional being already, without medicine. Most of us have just been conditioned out of our expanded cosmic nature. We teach you how to wake up to your inherent multidimensional consciousness in everyday life, not just a one-time ceremonial experience.
  • We support an addiction-free path of freedom. Although most people do not get addicted to Ayahuasca, the psyche can unconsciously become dependent upon plant medicines for powerful mystical experiences. If your psyche becomes dependent, this is the opposite of achieving freedom.
  • We teach you how to tap into the subtle reality – where your power truly lies. Many substances create a powerfully intense experience of multidimensional reality that can’t be experienced in everyday ordinary reality. Because the experience is so intense, our brain then begins to think that God, the multiverse etc, are always that As a result, we ignore more subtle reality. At Sacred Voyages we help you cultivate a relationship with subtle reality. It is indeed the subtle reality where all of our power lies. You can access it all the time (rather than just occasionally in ceremony). Tapping into subtle reality requires a very different kind of experience than the intensity created by plant medicines.
  • We believe you can live in “Divine Awareness” all of the time. With the proper introduction, experiences, and guidance you can tap into cosmic consciousness any time. To experience cosmic, multi-dimensional reality, you do not need to enter a plant medicine ceremony, which will often take you away from work and other practical daily reality. You can cultivate your awareness to be tuned in anytime, all the time. This is the path to be fully awake in your everyday.

Are You Ready for a Shamanic Adventure into the Subtle Realms of Consciousness {Substance-Free}?

Join Us: Shamanic Adventure Retreat



What if there were a space, a container – a frequency field – in which the veils of illusion could easily fall away and you could experience and know the Uncontainable Truth of the Love, Peace and Perfection that You already are?  There is! And you can be there! It’s what we call a Shamanic Container.

A Shamanic Container is a field of Unconditional Love, multi-dimensional reality, shamanism and mysticism. It is created by a Shaman or Mystic who transmits a variety of “magickal” ingredients into the energy field, which when mixed together alchemically create a caldron of all possibilities. This “container” is a field of Limitlessness, Infinite possibility, Divinity and All That Is (the “Uncontainable”).  

When the Shamanic Container is created, a person or group then marinates in this energy field which dissolves illusion, conditioning, limitation, wounding and trauma. It’s a timeless field of limitless potential, where there is no separation and everything in the material realm is revealed as illusory (without resistance or judgement). Once separation is dissolved by the energy of the container, then Self realization – as God, Divinity, and the Unity of All That Is – can awaken into full consciousness.

The Shamanic Container is both Everything and Nothing – a portal into all possibilities and simultaneously it is all possibilities. It’s a magic carpet ride into the Truth of your Being, the revelation and embodiment of who you really are, your soul, and who you came here to be.

On all my retreats and in all my sessions, I create a powerful Shamanic Container. After decades of intimate apprenticeship with shaman, kahuna and spiritual teachers, I have deeply explored and ultimately codified what we call The 5 Shamanic Tools. While it is impossible to describe the ineffable, we have found that practicing an alchemy of these 5 Shamanic Tools (mixed with indescribable magick) creates a unified field of consciousness – a Shamanic Container –  that supports all to realize higher states of Being. This is the pool we swim in together.

The 5 Shamanic Tools:
Maintaining the Shamanic Container
The Oneness Experience
Unconditional Love
Inner Guidance
Sacred Site Attunement

When used alchemically, intentionally with ceremony & ritual, these practices help to form and maintain the Shamanic Container.

The ancient shamans and mystics cultivated and navigated this energy frequency and its effects. Some call it the “crack between the worlds.”

While the Shamanic Container is created through intention, ritual and ceremony, similar frequencies were already the predominant reality in some ancient cultures in history. It was simply their waking reality. It was the norm in ancient Hawaii and ancient Lemuria. There are still places today in Hawaii and Mount Shasta where the energy of the Shamanic Container naturally exists, untouched by the western world’s dominant frequency of mind, time, space, reasoning and logic.  This Shamanic Container can exist inside of us, or we can visit them on earth, which we call “Sacred Sites”.

On our in person retreats, we go to these “Sacred Sites” (on earth and within) to be quickened by their powerful transformational energy. Voyagers in the Shamanic Container (anyone who is on retreat or does a Shamanic Coaching Session) are infused in this vibration the entire time we are together, which quickens their own frequency to this expanded place of all possibilities.

This powerful energy field awakens Voyagers to their shamanic-psychic gifts, or “siddhi’s,” as they are known in the East. There are hundreds of different shamanic or mystical gifts that are possible in humans. Whichever ones that are your natural proclivity, needed for your evolution, and serve your purpose, will often “flame on” when you begin to resonate in a Shamanic Container.

The Shamanic Container also heals and resolves wounds, trauma and other human conditioning.  People also at times experience instant manifestation, total clarity, knowing your life purpose, dissolution of fears, pain, doubts and other illusions, or even instant healing.

The Shamanic Container also catalyzes mystical Self realization as God, awakening, and experiences of Oneness.  It wakes you up out of illusion and into your Infinite nature, who you truly are.  

All of this and endless other gifts are common in this field within which all parallel universes, all time and space, are co-existing at the same time and freely accessible.

Being in this Shamanic Container 24/7, for as little as hours, but ideally for as long as possible, literally changes you at the deepest levels of your being.
