“Shamanic Trekker Peru: Journey to the Source” – TRAILER

A Documentary Film with Kristen White & John Schwab

John Schwab is a shamanic practitioner from the lineage of the indigenous shamans of the Q’uero tribe of the high Andes in Peru. He’s also a graduate of the Energy Medicine program at the Four Winds Society. The Four Winds Light Body School offers the world’s most extensive professional trainings in energy medicine based on the 50,000- year-old wisdom teachings of the ancient Americans.

The goal of the Four Winds is to teach individuals how to become modern day shamans. Modern day shamans are men and women who are willing to be visionaries and healers in their families and communities. They learn to live in balance, and share their skills to be of deepest service and make a difference in the world.

The program was developed by founder Dr. Alberto Villoldo, who has spent more that 30 years studying with the medicine and wisdom keepers of the Andes and the Amazon.

He has received multiple rites and initiations, including the nine rites of the Munay-Ki, which were energetically transmitted in Peru by shaman elders.

John works with individuals to release hidden trauma, provide higher self guidance and expand awareness to all levels of individual consciousness.

Shamanic sessions include chakra clearing, chakra balancing, soul retrieval, and energizing the luminous light body through the release of negative energies.

As done in 2015 with FEMME, we plan to host Private Screening of a fabulous short documentary. We have been blessed with the support once again of Emmanuel Itier and his Fab team that produced SHAMANIC TREKKER.

Team Celebration is now working to host a very special Guest: Producer, Kristen White, in person with us on SEPT 17 as one of our Keynote Speakers, sharing her experience working for others. Kristen White brings more than a decade of experience as a television journalist and anchor to her Transformational Media TV programs: Let’s start a Ripple, Mandala, and Ask My Doctor TV.

Kristen is an award winning video producer, journalism college professor and media and marketing expert who helps entrepreneurs, authors, speakers, life coaches and businesses become more powerful messengers with content creation and on-camera coaching.

Kristen White is trained in energy medicine. She is a Karuna Reiki Master registered with and she is certified in Tsi Dup Yang Bod, a Tibetan energy medicine from the Bon tradition. Kristen has also been certified in Angel Therapy, has studied shamanism, and spent time in Brazil as a Medium of the Casa of John of God. Kristen is an open channel intuitive and has worked extensively with private clients.

This beautiful film will take us all into Peru to learn Why the Western World Is Fascinated by Shamans.

Meet the Shamans of the High Andes…
In the film we journeyed to the source of Shamanism in Peru, the indigenous Q’ero tribe located in the High Andes mountain region.

The Q’ero are the last of the Incas – a tribe of 600 who sought refuge at altitudes above 14,000 feet in order to escape the conquering conquistadors. For 500 years the Q’ero elders have preserved a sacred prophecy of a great change, or “pachacuti,” in which the world would be turned right-side-up, harmony and order would be restored, and chaos and disorder ended.

The Q’ero have served as the caretakers of the rites and prophecies of their Inca ancestors.

Every year thousands of pilgrims from the Western world have sought to learn this knowledge and receive the rituals from the linage of the ancient elders of the High Andes. Many western “shaman” schools in the United States and Europe now train men and women to become shamans by receiving these sacred rites called the Munay Ki.

For Thousands of Years Shamans Were the Medicine Men and Women of the World

Now Is the Time Predicted for Centuries…
The Q’ero believe it’s now the time for their ancient prophecies to come true. The signs of destiny long predicted by the elders have all occurred.

However, one must be in alignment and harmony with nature, otherwise the prophecies are of no use to them. Unless one has the keys, the rites of passage. The Star Rites, or “Mosoq Karpay” (The Rites of the Time to Come), are crucial to the practical growth described in the prophecies. Following the “despachos” (ritualistic offerings of mesa, or medicine bundles), the shamans administer the Mosoq Karpay to the individuals present, transmitting the energies originating with the ancestors of their lineage.

The transmission of the Mosoq Karpay is the ceremony representing the end of one’s relationship to time. It is a process of the heart. This process of Becoming is considered more important than the prophecies themselves. The Karpay (rites) plant the seed of knowledge, the seed of Pachacuti, in the Luminous body of the recipient. It is up to each person to water and tend the seed so that it can grow and blossom. The rites are transmission of potential; one must then make oneself available to destiny. The Karpays connect the person to an ancient lineage of knowledge and power that cannot be accessed by the individual.

These sacred rites can only be summoned by the Q’ero tribe the source of the lineage from Central America for the new generation of shamans in the western world.

The Andean shamans say,
“Follow your own footsteps.
Learn from the rivers, the trees and the rocks.
Honor the Christ, the Buddha, your brother and sisters.
Honor the Earth mother and the Great Spirit.
Honor yourself and all of creation.”

“Look with the eyes of your soul and engage the essential,”
This is the teaching of the Q’ero…

This is our most popular type of wristbands, popularized by the Livestrong wristbands. You message will be debossed inside of the wristbands, creating an inward effect. The text shall be the same color of wristbands, with a slight color change due to the texture of the engraved portion. These would be the most cost-effective option as well.

All in all, we have served tens of thousands of clients worldwide. People have used them to show support for advocacies like fund-raisers for cancer research, or as custom-made giveaways for events.

This led to them being known as “awareness bracelets,” as a means to differentiate them from the ones used for commercial or corporate purposes.

A huge Shout Out to this Speaker, sharing on her Message of Peace: “Healthy Heart Merry Mind”, Amy Rempel.

When Amy’s children were little she was diagnosed with osteoarthritis due to a genetic disorder, she was able to get through it with acupuncture and the help of her amazing Naturopath and realized the incredible benefits of natural solutions to pain. Amy thought that also starting her own business would help her bring in an income only working part time. Unfortunately it did not work out that way for her with that particular company. In fact it stressed her out and her health declined.

Since January 2017, when she founded Healthy Heart Merry Mind, she has helped many women make significant changes to their experiences of self-care and family care and has found a business that works with her lifestyle! Today, Amy’s focus is to help women understand and establish a healthy lifestyle so they feel confident in their pain and stress management. She has also partnered with Inspired Haus as a business coach for an incredible program called 90-Days of Change. In the program Amy teaches what she has learned as a lifelong entrepreneur about the mindset and accountability factors that support women’s success in business.

As a foundation she believes that we as women need to be kinder to ourselves and incorporate significant self care into our businesses. She will be speaking about this and you can learn more in her upcoming co-authored book called “I’m 30, Now What?”. Stay tuned for her presentation on 5 practical habits to easily establish in a busy life!

You can reach Amy at, go to her website and follow her on social media FB: @healthyheartmerrymind and on Instagram: @healthyheartmerrymind

Team Celebration is elated to announce our esteemed Speaker, Linda Lonseth joining us to celebrate World Peace Day 2017 on Sept. 17.

Linda Lonseth, M.Mus, B.Ed
Transformational Intuitive Lightwork Master


She uses the following energy therapies in her work… Read More Here.

Linda has her own unique bodywork abilities – playing with spaces (which contain all the energies). It’s kind of difficult to describe (but do ask for a demonstration!) This is superfast and superpowerful! She also works with light from a different realm in bodywork sessions – somewhat distinct from playing with spaces, also difficult to describe, but much better experienced and enjoyed!

Most of the bodywork she does with spaces is non-contact, and is sometimes done in conjunction with Access Body Processes and Access Bars, in private sessions. She will share whatever spaces and energies your body ‘asks for‘.

She loves to show people how to play with spaces, spin spaces, and work with powerful light columns. She gives workshops (both in-person and online) to share this with anyone who is interested. This is indeed the cutting edge of transformational work – both self-administered, and for therapeutic purposes. For starters, attend lightwork project sessions and learn how to work with light.

Claudia Mariano is a Nurse Practitioner, author, educator, and entrepreneur.

She combines her passion for science, medicine, education, and freedom by managing a full time clinical practice, teaching nursing students, sharing her premium skin care products and business opportunities, and teaching women how to live their lives with purpose.

Benevolence for self and others, through passion and purpose.

This is the cornerstone of her endeavours and will be the focus of her presentation.

JOIN US on Sept 17 and we will bring PachaMama to YOU!

Applications are now being reviewed for entertainers, exhibitors, speaking proposals & sponsors.
