“Dakota is an accomplished mentor. She doesn’t instruct, she shares. Dakota wields the tools of insight like a spiritual ninja!”
“Dakota is the real deal. She is a great teacher who is genuine, caring, funny, inspiring, she makes you feel safe, she puts her heart and soul into her work and that just shines through.”
“I knew I was on the cusp of becoming the fullest version of myself …there’s so many different aspects of the Mentorship I cherish and it allowd me to be so courageous to step into who I am.”
For anyone considering joining the Mentorship whatever your expectations are, they probably won’t be met, they’ll be exceeded beyond whatever you thought possible. You just can’t anticipate what you are going to learn and what will unfold for you with this kind of work. It is the most supportive environment I have ever witnessed.”
“The Mentorship was like a light bulb went off over my head and in my heart. Started to feel like the old, dry shell of myself was cracking off and I was breaking free of the stuff that was keeping me small. Huge expansion!”
“When Dakota shows you there is a way to step into your power, you start seeing signs everywhere. From someone who never thought I’d ever be doing this – ever, I’m so thankful to be here and to be part of this Mentorship because it has truly opened up a world for me that I never knew existed.”
“Dakota’s training provided a framework for me to begin moving through unresolved trauma, emotional wounds, and spiritual life transitions. It provided a safe container for which I could place myself where new seeds would be planted, watered, nourished and grown.”
Notes from a Shaman
Finding Solitude in a Noisy World
Everywhere around us is noise. The chaos of the world, our self-sabotaging thoughts, the circus that runs rampant in our head. The solitude and quiet inner reflection is a necessary tool for recalibrating our soul and lending space to our discovery of our sacred purpose and our divine connection. Learn more about how to cultivate this space within you, and to create more harmony from the inside out.
By My Dying Side
In the moments just before death, are their regrets? Are their profound messages to urge you to live differently? Is there a moment of connection that is needed in order to pass peacefully? In this guided meditation we connect to our breath, that given gift we sometimes take for granted and while journeying through a beautiful forest at the guidance of a spirit bird, we enter a sacred space and ask those very questions to our future self, moments before our own passing from this incarnation and back to our soul family. Hear what messages this part of you has for you now, and use these moments for deep clarity in the way you presently live.
