A few months ago I drove six hours for a breakfast.
Yes, you read that correctly. I love me a good road trip, but even for me this was out of the ordinary. Then again, my breakfast date was with the very extraordinary Javier Regueiro.
I met Javier in Peru two years ago. The month I spent working with him was challenging, powerful, and potent. In less than four weeks, I had faced, accepted, and healed sexual trauma that I had carried in silence for 15 years. I forgave myself and fully released decade long shame over my abortion. I experienced life altering revelations about my body and how to come into a loving partnership with her. That forgiveness, trust, and empowerment paved the way for me to fully let go of alcohol after a twenty year long rollercoaster with it. I also had a private and entirely sober full body orgasm from a solo-sex experience with just a single rose…
So yes, I was more than willing to drive from Denver to Sante Fe to see him.
I thank my emotions and intuition, not logic, for the greatest gifts in my life. My move to Colorado where at the time I knew precisely three people. My decision to buy my first home over FaceTime sight unseen. Adopting Lugh dog when everyone told me I “didn’t have the time for a puppy.” Launching O’actually… None of these “made sense.” Even to me. And yet there was zero chance of me backing down on them. They felt true, with a capital T.
Javier and I recorded this interview on the two year anniversary of my 2015 Peruvian dieta. My dieta consisted of eating no meat, dairy, or salt and seven ceremonies with the ancient plant medicines of San Pedro/ Huachuma and Ayahuasca and The Rose. It was not for the faint of heart, but we here are a tribe of big, powerful, hearts.
I promise that regardless of your knowledge or interest in plant medicine, Javier has abundant wisdom for you.
San Pedro/ Huachuma: Opening the Pathways of the Heart is Javier’s newest book and it transcends the ancient to the modern.
If you feel called to plant medicines, I encourage you to listen. Listening to their call awakened deeper levels of compassion and love for myself and others than I knew possible. I am in deep gratitude for that work and the inner peace I found through it.
If you are not called to the plant medicines, I encourage you to listen. Javier is a teacher with many tools, and his understanding of and appreciation for the divinity of feminine energy within us all is vast. He shares insights and invitations that are accessible to everyone. This is for anyone who yearns to come back into deeper connection and reverence for their feminine energy.
Javier remind us, “The world needs more feminine energy at all levels. We must reclaim the holiness of our emotions – all of them.”
