I share a compass to live a remarkable life, not because of material or outer success, but to cultivate presence and courage in the face of personal challenges and societal unrest.

My story, from growing up in a war-torn country to being initiated by the shamans of the Andes and becoming a teacher and a medicine woman, offers you a flesh-and-bones context for each step of the archetypal journey to Self.

Also, by giving you examples about other people crossing the veils from ordinary to extraordinary, I invite you to a new level of openness to perceive the world mystical beyond appearances.

  • Most current books about creating a better life focus on speed: life hacks, shortcuts, and mechanistic systems. But true transformation lies beyond such strategies. In The Sacred Andean Codes, Marcela Lobos encourages us to find our inherent wisdom by slowing down.

    She writes lovingly and clearly about the Munay-Ki (10 shamanic initiations) as a time-honored way to connect with and empower your true self. Her work will help you go beyond self-help to encounter true spiritual awakening.
