Feed Your Wild with Venessa Rodriguez

Jan 21, 2019

In this week's special encore episode, coming off of this full (super) moon lunar eclipse in Leo, we navigate the realms of energy with one of my personal favorite episodes & teacher Joan Parisi Wilcox.

This interview was done before there ever was a Feed Your Wild podcast, and it resonates so deeply for me in this catalytic time... calling us to step more fully into the embodiment and life we desire.

I'd love to hear from you! If you have a suggestion for a guest or would love us to cover a specific topic/theme this year, let me know!

What if you could experience "heaven on Earth," without the use of mind-altering psychotropics or disembodied experiences?

The Andean mystical tradition is a pragmatic sacred tradition that teaches us how to live in this way - providing tools for living in harmony with nature and the spirit realms, with a primary goal to live with well-being in the embodied world, empower your energy body, and refine your consciousness. 

Joan Parisi Wilcox has studied the tradition and spiritual arts of the Q'ero Indians of Peru, the most respected mystics of the south-central Andes, for more than twenty years under the tutelage of Juan Nuñez del Prado and has been interviewed in documentary films about the tradition.

In this episode, Joan gives us an overview of the Andean cosmovision, we talk about salqa - the ·undomesticated or wild· energy in relation to this cosmovision, and how to refine our energy body so that we can ·push the kawsay·, or manifest with the living animating energy of the cosmos. She shares core practices that you can use when you need them wherever and whenever, and gives insight into the importance of intention in this energy work along with her sage advice for committing to your personal evolution.

Joan provides insights into an ancient wisdom that can help those of us living in a modern society re-discover our own wild, find attunement with nature and harmony within ourselves. Joan is a professional writer with interests in frontier science, shamanism and mysticism, and indigenous traditions. She is the author of Masters of the Living Energy: The Mystical World of the Q·ero of Peru as well as 2 other books. She has written dozens of magazine articles, been interviewed on radio, lectured at conferences in the US and Europe, is a transformational coach and teaches workshops across the US on the Andean mystical tradition.
