A registered complementary health practitioner, Ali completed her initial training as a holistic massage and level II Reiki practitioner so along with using Swedish, Thai, acupressure and deep tissue massage techniques to assist with specific issues, her approach is to help you bring your whole self back into a state of balance. This way of working not only provides support to the body during the recovery from acute issues (stress, tension, discomfort, aches and pains) but also helps revive mind and spirit promoting an over all sense of relaxation and well being.

Lorrii Dragon Dream

Shamanic Practitioner, Sundoor Firewalk Trainer/instructor, Moving Mandala Practitioner/Teacher, Yoga Teacher.

From a very young age I’ve felt a deep appreciation for all of Nature. Growing up in New Brunswick, Canada, my fondest childhood memories are those of connecting with the tree’s and being in the forest. For most of my life, I have been on a journey of discovering my gifts and I love to incorporate drumming, sound and song into my healing practice/Ceremony. For over 10 years I have been facilitating Intentional Shamanic Drum Circles dedicated to Ceremony, Intentional Drumming, Healing and building Sacred Community.

Studying and practicing Shamanism since 2007 has led me on many adventures including to Arizona, California, New England, Alaska, Mexico, British Columbia, Eastern Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ireland, Scotland and to England, where I received my Teacher Training for The Moving Mandala.

I feel very honoured to be a Moving Mandala Teacher and facilitating Moving Mandala Shamanic Retreats has been such power-full and rewarding work.

Winter Solstice Ñusta Karpay Online Retreat -
Dec 19th and 20th 2020 3-7pm GMT

7 deep connections with the Goddess energy of the Apus ( the Mountain Spirits) are given by Pampamesayoq Don Augustine and his son Santos.
In this two-day retreat around the time of Winter Solstice, you will explore and develop a committed, daily spiritual practice through receiving seven energy transmissions called Karpay as two separate sessions 3-7pm GMT.

These sacred rites are experienced through ceremony and will help you to gain perspective on your own sacred path in life. As all transmissions, the whole body and etheric part of us will be affected, slowly open up and releasing the energy that no longer serves you.

You will be expected to attend both sessions, it isn’t possible just to come for one session.
With Pampamesayok Don Augustine Machacca Florez and Santos Machacca Apaza, a paqo from the High Andes, Peru. Also supported by Ali Rabjohns and Ewa Demahina, both practitioners from this tradition. All proceeds from this retreat will go to the Q’ero nation.

Before we receive each Karpay, Don Augustine gives the explanation of each one. This is a beautiful way to “fall” even deeper in-to the Andean energy shifts and understanding with our hearts.
By the end of your time, you will have a deeper insight into this authentic shamanic path. You will have plenty of time to deepen your connection with this divine Andean tradition and Mother Earth.

The Ñustas are the feminine energy of the Apus (the mountain spirits which hold both a feminine and a masculine energy to obtain balance).
Ñusta is the Quechuan name for a goddess / princess, a woman of royal blood from the Incan empire.

Looking back in time, the Andean cosmology is about nature and that everything aims to come into balance.

” When Augustine tells his stories the ancestors gather and use him as a clear channel for their words. I love this about him because even when we think we know what we are going to expect, we are always left with a wide open heart at the end”.

(Ewa DeMahina, Karpay Retreat Facilitator in Sweden 2019).

Regular Despacho Ceremonies. The next Despacho will be Friday 13th November at 8pm GMT

A Despacho is the Andean practice of creating ceremony to the mountains, Mother Earth and nature spirits in reciprocity and gratitude.
In 2009 I met this beautiful, warm hearted teacher and Pampamesayoq and received a powerful Karpay in the Mountain region of Huaman Lipa, Q’eros, Peru. Since then, my life hasn’t been the same and it is my great honour to introduce my teacher in this way to you all. He and his son Santos have agreed to perform a Haywariqui or Despacho ceremony for us.

All proceeds will go to Don Augustine and his family.
For people who are earning a steady income, we suggest £10.
We know that these are tricky times – and we don’t in any way want to stop people from joining if you can’t offer a donation.
We trust that you will do the right thing.

Hopefully, Don Augustine will be coming with his son Santos this August to Glastonbury to pass on a powerful series of Karpay, or energy transmissions during a beautiful retreat.
This Despacho ceremony is to help build a rainbow bridge, an act of Ayni or reciprocity to enable us all to work together in harmony.
This ceremony will help to bring us into alignment with our personal intent, our group intent and immense gratitude for the earth. This can help us dream a new world into being for our children’s children.
