This week we had the incredible privilege and honor of sitting down with Xochitl Ashe, a Fifth Generation Peruvian Medicine Woman, Founder of Magical Medicine Journeys and Visionary Mentor for leaders, entrepreneurs, creatives and world awakeners, as well as Ellen's medicine mentor. Xochitl shares so much wisdom with us in this conversation and we're deeply grateful for all the ways her teachings have impacted our lives and practices.
Through her mentorships, Xochitl helps others heal ancestral trauma and get back into deep connection with the Earth. She teaches us that through this work, we're able to find a deep spiritual connection to all the blessings our ancestors have to share with us, and it opens up a divine spiritual reconnection to the Earth.
For so many of us, money and love are deeply embedded ancestral wounds that we're working through. Xochitl helps us understand these wounds from a new perspective rooted in the wisdom that energy, inner power, love and prosperity are all energies, and invites us to think about how we source. She explains how sourcing vertically through our connection with the divine brings us back into our inner power and leads to sustainability and abundance. And when we source horizontally, we seek from things or people outside of ourselves, which is outside of our control and disconnected from the Earth, which leads to suffering from lack.
And to support those who are are working through a sense of lack or facing something difficult, Xochitl brings us back into connection with the Earth Mother. She offers wisdom to us as space holders on how to support others in finding trust and reconnecting to the divine love of the Earth.
"I have myself witnessed in my own life and in the lives of those that I support, that at any moment when we are disconnected from this divine being that is the Earth, we suffer. We suffer from lack, we suffer from bad health, we suffer from lack of clarity. We can be in a lot of confusion. The premise of everything I do is really to reconnect us back to this incredible supporting energy, which is the Earth as a benevolent entity, energy that is our divine mother."
As a 5th generation Medicine Woman, Xochitl has spent 27 years working with the sacred mushroom and offers retreats that are rooted in the indigenous wisdom of the Peruvian Andean tradition of her ancestral lineage. She talks to us about her upcoming Mazatec Psilocybin Mushroom Retreat in July, and how through this work it's her mission is to give reverance and honor to these medicines.

She is a Medicine Woman in the Peruvian Andean tradition and has worked with sacred plant medicines since the time of her initiation.
