Celia has studied and practiced Core Neo-Shamanism as taught by Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman, and Hank Wesselman. This foundational practice was deepened and expanded through initiation into the ancient Inca lineage of Earthkeepers and Lightbody healers directly transmitted by the Q’ero Paqokuna from the high Andes in Peru. Her extensive and ongoing training includes direct experience with Alberto Villoldo of The Four Winds Society, Jose Luis Herrera of The Rainbow Jaguar Institute, Dennis Alejo of Serena Anchanchu School, Joan Parisi Wilcox, Juan Nunez del Prado, Altomesayok Don Aldolfo Tito Condori, and the Q’ero Paqos with whom she has become deeply spiritually aligned.
In addition to her Animistic and Spiritual teaching, Celia offers meditation and self-compassion training through the Mindful Self-Compassion program and Awake in the Wild Mindfulness in Nature program. She offers guided nature immersion retreats in the wilderness and sacred pilgrimage to the mountains and valleys of Peru as well as the Ancestral Pueblo lands of New Mexico and the Sonoran Desert of Southeastern Arizona.
