Opening Spring Equinox 2019.
“Phoenix the Elder walks the archaic path of the “Midnight Sun” which is the shaman grandmother’s traditions of walking the living phases of the moon in it’s cyclical nature; medicines of the ancient woman’s bird culture (soul & dreaming); serpent’s medicine (transformational healing of the soul); and spider (weaver of soul & healing for regeneration). Baba is the universal word for grandmother and in Slavic and Balkan traditions before paganism, it was and still is the transformation and regeneration lineages or what is known as Bone Mother. As shaman, her avian nature is comparable to any medicines of Raven, Owl, Vulture, Condor and Thunderbird in any world culture, in which the soul’s death is so often required for the processes of detoxifying for regeneration (karmic purification) in our life.
Her archetype as shaman grandmother was so feared by pagan and religious men, that they forced her to step down from leadership, then corrupted her story of sacred and holy powers of healing as a shaman, seer, knower, transformer, nurture of family, children and grandchildren and spiritual warrior. She forever remains in her state of corruption in her fairy tale prison and called her from there forth, Baba Jaga. Phoenix brings back respect of such powerful female shamans and holds truth of a world in denial, through the medicines of her stories of magical experiences, demon slaying and folk healing.
Phoenix was fated this lifetime from birth as the next dreamer (shaman) of her family’s lineage and accepted the calling. Its called Szeptun (Szeptucha, Whisperer) in Polish and Mol’farka in Ukraine; her elders were from Tyczyn, Poland, a Podkarpackie Voivodeship in Rzeszów and Lubaczów, both near the border of Ukraine.
Having undergone four decades of initiations of physical deaths, losses, soul sicknesses, homelessness, mental break-throughs, self healing purification processes, chaos medicines, demonic attacks and rebirth initiations, she was and still is devoted to her spiritual self-healing journey for pure survival and karmic purification. Her shaman initiation journey began at 17 years old in 1975; mysticism and mystical initiations began at 27; and the final third of her journey were the death initiations (the dark moon journey) beginning at 43 which continued until all was completed at 57 years old in 2015.
Folk Healing with the Moon, supporting issues of emotional, physical and mental imbalances and karma through transformational healing work and practices; Dreaming & Dreams as Medicine, she has been teaching apprentices since 1995 and now opens to the general public and as a dream walker is capable of working behind the veil to free the soul of the person she works with; Dreaming Journeys for group and individual (non plant, non drug). Soul healing journeys on the autumn equinox & winter solstice (underworlds); mystical earth journeys on the spring equinox & summer solstice (middleworlds); Healing Ceremony for the more serious dreamers, artists, spiritual ones, ceremonial cleansing, purification and dissolve for individuals and community; Lunar Moon Cycle A working and living path to relearn the ancient way to live by the thirteen moon cycles in their four seasons and two seasons; Divination Seer Readings, Intuitive Counsel, Medical Intuitive, Astrologer. Spiritual Warrior training for maidens, mothers and wise-women. Wind-Whisperer (shadow dream huntress and exorcist) eradication of shadow astral bodies, shadow roamers, sickness of space or land, clearings of hauntings, depossessions and exorcism.
