Bonus Meditation with Marie-Rose

The perfect meditation to help you recharge & revitalize anytime you’re feeling a bit tired, fatigued, or foggy-brained. It’ll leave you feeling energized and refreshed!


In this heart-felt conversation, I talk with Marie-Rose about the hero’s journey, in this case, one that took Marie-Rose from the comfort of a successful career in multimedia, to a world journey, meeting with Shaman, Kahunas, and Llamas, in remote villages in Peru, Nepal, Tibet, the lava fields of an active Hawaiian volcano, and deep inside China. We’ll talk about what possesses someone to leave their comfort zone for a greater cause, and how that journey can lead to self-discovery and guidance. At the same time we’ll look at endangered indigenous healing practices, and what they mean for own health.

Key Topics:

  • Marie-Rose shares the circumstances that inspired her to seek out and document indigenous healers from around the world
  • from meeting with shamans in Peruvian jungles to Nepal to how she discovered her own ability to heal others
  • how instead of practicing “mind over matter,” you should practice “mind with matter”
  • your belief system may be more important than the healing modality that you pick
  • the usefulness of “suspending your disbelief” while you are undergoing healing
  • how ayahuasca aided Marie-Rose in expanding her consciousness
  • the benefits of living more connected to nature and the Earth and how you can bring nature into your life wherever you live
  • how Marie-Rose was able to integrate her new found spiritual lessons with life as she knew it by sharing her story
  • what is media as medicine
  • how true leaders are on the bottom, not on the top and what it takes to be a good leader
  • the power of ancient traditions and how they can help modern society
  • the danger of thinking in dualistic terms, such as eastern vs western medicine and Marie-Rose’s mission to be a “bridge”

Top 3 Pieces of Advice:

  1. start with making a commitment…
  2. have faith (not to be confused with blind faith)…
  3. compassion as true understanding (different from sympathy)…
