Workshops and Retreats
Workshops at ASC have moved to an online format in 2021! We are bringing through ancient material, based on the traditional teachings of the Andes, in a very modern way. It turns out energy is energy! You can be anywhere and learn about it, and work with it from any place! We will be returning to in-person group gatherings as the COVID ruckus settles down, but our classes are moving online.
Please join us online as we shift gears...!
Note: the three online classes listed below are currently all we are offering for 2021. For those who have already taken the full Mesa Carrier series and are interested in continuing on with the EMC classes, they have been reformatted to a self-paced one-on-one apprentice program for 2021. We will no doubt resume in-person courses in the future, but at this point it is really hard to know when.
So, hang on to your hats, and join us for this wild new ride!

Energy Medicine Certification Program
We use the word "shaman" with deliberate care and trepidation as it has been so overused in mainstream society in recent years and has come to mean so many different things in this day and age. To be clear, the energetic teachings at ASC come from an ancient tradition of energetic healers in the Andes, descendants of the Inkas. They call themselves “paq’os.” We teach their methods with their blessings. They are a people who want to share their wisdom with the world and do so freely and with love.
Your first step on this path is to take the Online Andean Foundation Series so you understand their medicine and their perspectives. Completion of that program will provide you with a misha (mesa), a working knowledge of their core energy medicine practices, and a firm grasp of the Andean perspective on healing. It is important to note that this form of “shamanism” is complimentary but very different from modern Reiki and Shamanic Reiki. It is also a very different path than the the Michael Harner based Shamanic Journeying programs. Although often helpful tools, it also goes well beyond sage and power animals into the heart of repairing the soul. This is a premier energy medicine program aimed at the person interested in working at a professional capacity with victims of trauma and abuse. It is a grounded, serious form of shamanic healing, designed for clients with deep unconscious blocks .
Completing the Andean Foundation Series is a prerequisite.Read More
Shamanic healings at ASC are one-on-one sessions designed to help you access the unconscious aspects of yourself that keep you in dysfunctional life patterns and in illness, and to process that as energy, reset, and heal. The journey of healing is that of processing the aspects of our humanity that hold us back, and integrating the darkness and divinity we have not yet been able to own. Ultimately healing is to find peace, balance, and integrity with ourselves again.Read More
Private Consultations are two forms of mentoring to help you along the way when you need a consult but not healing work. They differ from Healings in that no energy, or deep soul clearing work is done. It is strictly at the level of conversation.
- In the Personal Mentoring and Integration sessions we flesh out the unconscious aspects of self that are asking for integration. This is for mentoring about how to navigate your every day life. It is also perfect for for entheogenic plant medicine work, as well as dream work. Integration is the the real muscle behind processing any kind of healing or mystical experience. Without integration work your experience is just another event in your life. Integration work grounds and pulls through the teachings of that experience so they can be an impetus for change in your life, rather than just another aha or "high."
- The Professional Mentoring sessions allow the professional Healer a way of getting professional guidance as they evolve with their medicine. It is offered as a way of answering any professional questions you may have as you step more deeply into your profession. It is most useful for graduates of ASC's EMC program, but can be effectively used for any healing modality too.
Shamans, or paq’os, as they are called in the high Andes, are the equivalent of priests in tribal communities. As such they hold space and facilitate transitions from one state of being to another through what we call ceremonies. As a trained shaman, Integration Guide, and as a Minister of The Church of Life, Christina is available to help you design individual ceremonies for your own personal transitions, in a sacred way, and to help you integrate afterwards if needed.
And no, we do not offer group Ayahuasca ceremonies.Read More
