“Your visions will become clear
only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes.”
- Carl Jung

Antonia has taught Indigenous Healing Practices at Bastyr University as an adjunct faculty member, and has led groups teaching the Andean (Peruvian) tradition of the Medicine Wheel and has facilitated many different Toltec or other shamanic workshops.
She has worked with indigenous shamans and medicine people in Peru, Mexico and Colombia, and has hosted shamans, such as “Grandmother Nadia” from as far away as Siberia, and Francis Rico from California. Antonia is very grateful for all she has learned from them.
- Fri, Aug 06VashonThis weekend retreat culminates in a Toltec Dreaming Ceremony - a Mitote, a multi-dimensional, sacred all-night ceremony where we move between sleep, waking and lucid dreaming. It’s a powerful opportunity to clear the chaos of the mind and potentially bring us to a state of “awakening.”

Shamanic Journeying & Shamanic Practices

Pronounced mih-toe-tay, Mitote, is an ancient Mexican shamanic dreaming ceremony. Participants work with the elements in nature, and enter into a light trance state. The practice includes sleeping and waking throughout the night to induce a hypnogogic state. Increased awareness and deep insights, awareness, and healing can occur.
Next Mitote: Summer 2019
Despacho Ceremony is a traditional Peruvian ceremony where prayers are built inside of a paper bundle. Candies, foods and other natural elements are used to build a beautiful ‘mandala’ of living prayers. The despacho is either buried, burned or floated in a ceremonial way afterward. Despachos are very effective and are typically done for major life transitions, healing, gratitude, ‘ayni’ (right relationship). They are effective for individuals, businesses, groups or special occasions.
"I participated in a year long group held by Antonia for a small group of women. Antonia knows how to hold a circle beautifully! She keeps a safe container, is deeply knowledgeable, free from dogma and full of humor! Anyone interested in delving deeper into shamanic wisdom, the knowledge of our ancestors and inquiry into the mythical self will be in good hands with her.”
