Pilgrimage Support

Updated: Oct 24, 2022

In 2021, I took my first steps on a sacred path that had been calling me for more than a decade, probably my whole life. I just didn't have the awareness before then to understand my experiences. Hearing the call was a long journey in and of itself: walking through my life facing difficult challenges, growing, changing, learning, building courage. I had many dreams and waking life experiences all leading me to this place where I now find myself- walking the path to become a mara'akame, or traditional healer, in the Wixárika (Huichol) tradition.


To step on this path is to declare my life’s purpose being one of service and bringing healing to those who will benefit from this ancient medicine. It requires laying down my own agenda and surrendering to something greater. Making this commitment causes my heart to quicken and occasionally generates self doubt: am I up to this challenge?, what exactly is Spirit seeing in me worthy of this journey? Ultimately, I know deep within that my surmounting the challenges placed in my path ahead, will depend on your love, support and prayers. It is with great humility that I share that knowing and vulnerability with you. It is your support that will lift me up when I feel overwhelmed, when I feel the obstacles too great, for I will know that I am not walking this alone and that your love and support will be surrounding me every step of the way.


I am now officially an apprentice, and I will soon begin my preparations to embark on my second year of pilgrimage to the sacred sites that have called me to them. Already my life feels transformed and humbled. While challenging on many levels, I feel overflowing with gratitude to have found great purpose in my life- to live a life of service for the benefit of my community and all my relations. It is an immense blessing.


I leave for Mexico on November 18th and I am working hard to raise the necessary funds that I will need. I am humbly asking for your support in helping me in this way. The amount I need is $3000, which would cover my travel, lodging, food and miscellaneous pilgrimage expenses.
