Tired of playing the same old story over and over again? Ready to explore the possibilities awaiting you as you step more fully onto your destiny path? Or are you simply curious about indigenous healing traditions and interested in learning more about them?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then an upcoming workshop may be a great opportunity to learn how ancient healing traditions and practices can improve modern life.

Change Your Story — Change Your Life is scheduled for the evening of May 30 through early afternoon on June 1.

Instructors Linda Fitch and Mary Rogers will teach how to work with the energies of the earth, journey with your mind and find a power animal, explore the patterns that bind you and learn how to gracefully let them go while building a sacred medicine bundle.

The course, the first of a series of four this summer, will explore shamanism and energy medicine.

“Participants will receive the rites of the Q’ero of Peru, while learning the powerful tools of soul retrieval, sand painting, fire, despacho and ceremony to shift your old stories and create the life you want,” Rogers said.


Fitch is a master teacher and practicing shaman who has studied with the Inca of Peru for more than 16 years. She has trained hundreds of students in shamanic and energy healing techniques, with an emphasis on death and dying.

She is the former CEO and dean of the Light Body School of the Four Winds Society. Her programs are a combination of her experience in neuro-linguistic programming, shamanism and archetype work.

Rogers is a registered nurse, shamanic practitioner and doula for all of life’s transitions. She was born with the ability to feel and see energy fields and to journey, and has spent her life learning, growing and developing her skills.

She has also spent nearly a decade studying the traditions of Peru and is a graduate of The Four Wind Society’s Light Body School.

The cost is $350, and space is limited. To register or for more information, contact Rogers at or call 970-376-0826. Discounts are available for the full series of courses.
