LESSON 1: Your Potent Energy Point

This energetic point in the front midline of your body is an essential portal for relieving stress in the moment, and also for accessing and healing old trauma.

LESSON 2: The Grounding & Merging Process

This guided journey through your physical and energetic dimensions is foundational to Luisa's teachings. This is how embodiment begins: by coming into relationship with your experience of being in your body.

LESSON 3: Your Fully Blossomed Self

This is the bridge between your personal psyche and Source. Your Fully Blossomed Self is your oldest friend, closest companion, and greatest ally. This lesson is particularly helpful if you experience chronic loneliness or anxiety.

LESSON 4: The Three Compassionate Statements

This gentle self-intervention begins at the Potent Energy Point (P.E.P.) you learned about in Lesson One. Luisa teaches you a powerful self-intervention you can do right now to reduce emotional and central nervous system overwhelm.

LESSON 5: Widening the Riverbed 

Learn how to expand your sense of inner space when emotional and energetic intensity are running high. Learn how to flow and not get flooded so you may access your full measure of aliveness.

LESSON 6: How to Identify & Release Carried (Toxic) Shame

This is a powerful teaching that will help you delineate between your own healthy shame and shame that's been deposited onto you by another person or social system.

Luisa is a licensed psychotherapist, shamanic teacher, and spiritual mentor based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.

Born of Mexican and Russian-Jewish descent, her maternal grandmother was Dra. Concepción Palacios, the first female physician in Central America. Her great-grandmother Báltazara Herrera was the curandera in her village of El Sauce, Nicaragua.

"Through my own personal experience and working with clients for over thirty years, I've come to recognize that intuitive, mystically-inclined individuals have a vulnerability to un-boundaried empathy and trauma bonding.

I developed The Embodied Mystic to help you tether your spiritual nature to your human, earth-connected self, so you feel safe in your body, skillful in your relationship with yourself and others, and connected with yourself on the deepest levels."

“I am so deeply grateful for Luisa and the Embodied Mystic framework that she has created. Her work is impeccable, very accessible, and it helps you remember your true self again. During the six weeks I learned so much and healed deeply. If you are ready to connect with yourself, nature, and spirit on a deeper level, then I recommend you take this program.”

Shakaya M.

"The Embodied Mystic has been a great comfort and catalyst in my life. Luisa offers simple yet profound skills, solid structure, and a safe, loving container for coming into deeper relationship with one's self. I now feel more connected to the resources within me, more able to embrace and release the layers of trauma I am holding, more myself. Luisa shares her incredible wisdom and experience from a relatable, grounded, and compassionate place. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is seeking to experience a deeper truth of who they are, not as a concept, but in practice."

Matthew Peterson

“As a queer Latinx energy practitioner, I found the teachings and tools of The Embodied Mystic to be useful and healing. They opened the door for exploring carried shame due to my immigrant experience.”

Dayna Velasco, PTP

"The teachings Luisa shares in The Embodied Mystic Course are a revelation. Despite many years of study and self-reflection, I had never encountered the perspectives she offered on the dance of being human. In the six potent lessons of the class, I experienced epiphany after epiphany as I applied the fresh and unexpected wisdom to reframe the way I look at the story of my life. I learned tactics to deal with stress, overwhelm, and toxic shame; reclaimed abandoned parts of myself; gained an expanded understanding of being in my body; felt a renewed grounding in nature and mother earth; connected with allies in the mineral, plant and animal world. I discovered hidden inner powers. You’ve probably noticed that this is a stunning list. Here’s the astonishing thing—this only hints at the profound transformative power of this class. Luisa is a gifted teacher. Her depth, honesty, tenderness, and playful humor make even the most challenging topics safe to explore. I highly recommend you take the journey with her to discover the mysterious and magical inner universe we all have waiting inside us!"

Annie Lewis

“I experienced The Embodied Mystic course as a doorway to the embodiment of one’s sacred or highest self. On the front side of the door is a mirror. The mirror offers journeying as a tool to dive deeper into introspective reflection where awareness provides an opportunity to examine, dissolve and release old, stuck, negative, emotional imprints that keep the door jammed. On the other side of the door lies the pathway to healing. Thank you, Luisa, so grateful for the shared wisdom of The Embodied Mystic.”
