My latest book is out! Life, Lies, and Sex: a User’s Guide to Being in a Body, is now available. You can order it here. Or you can go to Author’s Den, which is a great site for authors. Or you can order it from your local bookstore. It’s also available as an e-book.
This book is a milestone in my work. Here are a couple of testimonials:
“Mikaya Heart leaves no stone unturned as she explores what it means to live, feel, believe and pleasure in this human form. Life, Lies, and Sex is a courageous look at the big questions we all innately desire to ask. Sit back and enjoy as you take a personal journey of life’s handbook where you are sure to find a message written just for you.” Jean Slatter, author of Hiring the Heavens.
“Mikaya Heart has done it again. She has engaged a quantity of tricky, esoteric subjects (life, lies, and sex) and speaking from the Heart words of truth with brilliant, yet simple clarity, enables readers to embrace truths of their own.” Dayana Jon Patterson, Senior Minister of Holistic Health, Matrix Energetics Practitioner, Laughter Yoga Teacher, and Spiritual Mentor.
I’m really excited about this book, but let’s get on with the regular website stuff:
As a coach in the art of being fully alive, I work with individuals over the Internet or in person. That means, if you are depressed, I will help you to find joy; if you are lost about where to turn next, I can help you make the choices that are right for you; if you just want more out of life, I can help you make the changes you need. You can always contact me to talk about what you are looking for.
All my work is about inspiring people to think beyond that box, to expand horizons. I believe our potential is truly incredible. So take off your dark glasses, remove your veils, let go of your cynical scepticism, and be willing to enter into an absolutely new way of thinking. What harm can it do?
The tool I most commonly use in my teaching is the shamanic journey, but as an ordained Minister of Holistic Healing, I organize all kinds of ceremonies. So, if you want someone to set up a sacred space for a wedding, a memorial service, a coming-of-age ceremony, welcoming a newborn into the world, or just to celebrate life, please contact me! I am happy to go where I need to go as long as my travel costs are covered.
My ability to do this kind of work stems from my willingness to be absolutely present on every level. I’ve been studying the nature of reality from many angles since I was very young; my writing and my teaching reflect what I have learned. That can be summed up very simply: we need to operate from a place of trust instead of fear. When we approach life with the openness that is enabled by being in a place of trust, we find that an infinite array of possibilities is available to us, and that there is an infinite source of guidance waiting to assist us. I help people to access that guidance by leading ceremonial and ritual circles. My key tool in teaching is the shamanic journey, which is an opportunity to get in touch with what I call the vastness of being: that 98% of reality that is unseen and contains vast potential. Most people experience a deep sense of peace and relaxation when they open to that, even if they have no words for it. This sense of peace (which might also be called love, beauty or joy) exists beyond duality, and when we can bring it into our lives on a daily basis, life is pretty awesome.
I am leading a number of shamanic journeys in northern California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Hawaii in 2015, as well as in the UK in the spring. Check my upcoming events or email me in case I have forgotten to put them up there . . . .
I love being able to facilitate the experience of being fully alive for others. It is the work I was born to do. Please contact me if you want to host a journey on in your area.
I act as a mentor for others who are on this path. One of these is Florian Kroll at vajra shamanics in South Africa.
