 The Shaman by Susan Boulet

Shaman by Susan Boulet

In truth, we all are healers in our own way... 

Whatever our profession, we each carry medicine and we deliver our medicine in a myriad of ways.  One of the most potent and available vessels is that of our word.  

A Shaman is one who has mastered her medicine and her word...

And who uses them with awareness, respect, and intent.  Though she honors her word, her faith is formless and is accessed regardless of the vessel.  For it is sourced and delivered directly through a channel that is led by Spirit and crafted in service to her client.

In this Shamanic Healing Practicum...

Rebecca Haywood shares the lineage of healing bestowed to her by Mother Sarita, Toltec Curandera and mother of bestselling author don Miguel Ruiz. Cycle I curriculum focuses on developing the medicine of your word through the ancient techniques of Velaciones, Egg Cleansing, and Channeling.

You will journey through Teotihuacan…

Dissolving doubts and limitations, and emerge as an authentic conduit of healing in which you fully embrace your word, your medicine, and the Healer within you.

Cycle I Curriculum:


Learn to use your word as a tool of healing with the practice of ‘velaciones’ — prayer vigils held over a candle used to aide people in person and from afar.  Our focus will be to expand the word beyond the realm of knowledge and into a universal language of faith, sourced and delivered through a clear channel of intent.

Egg Cleansing

Practice this ancient art of cleansing and reading the physical, emotional and spiritual ‘bodies’ of a person.  You will learn how to be a conduit of healing, receiving and transferring energy through your body and using your intuition to translate the ‘reading’ of the egg into a powerful story of healing for your client.


Deepen your practice of meditation into a place of pure receptivity from which you can deliver messages of wisdom and healing.  Aligning your mind and spirit, you will learn to access your Soul Mind — the open channel within your mind that is directly connected to the soul of Life and to our ‘Allies’ of spirit guides and elementals.

Mitote Ceremony

This powerful all-night ritual lifts the veil that separates you from the Soul Mind.  With the setting of the sun and the rise of the full moon, we will invite the ‘Mitote' dreaming energy and use it to break down the construct of the mind, shifting our assemblage point back to the Soul Mind.


Course includes two Teleclasses led by Rebecca — a pre-journey class to prepare and connect, and a post-journey class to ground and integrate.I'm Ready! Sign me Up!

Our Classroom

The ancient city of Teotihuacan, 'the place where human becomes God' was built upon the intent of spiritual transformation. Its temples and pyramids surround the Avenue of the Dead down which the ancient apprentices would travel, being 'digested' by Quetzocoatl, the Feathered Serpent. Along this avenue are plazas which represent the elements of Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Ether, or Body, Emotion, Mind, Heart and Spirit. At the outskirts of the avenue are several lesser known temples reserved for Masters, Healers and Priests. A Mystery School of the ages, Teotihuacan is a physical map for your transformation through which Rebecca will skillfully and respectfully guide you.

Our Home

Just down the road from our magical classroom lies El Casa de los Sueños, The Dreaming House. Within the gated walls of this spacious and private retreat, you will find a serene environment of gardens, teachings rooms, and domiciles; all decorated with the art of Mexico’s past, both recent and distant. The rooms have modern conveniences, but no modern annoyances. Meals are served family-style in La Cocina dining room and are prepared with skill and love, bringing you the authentic country flavors of Mexico. It’s a magical place for a magical time.I'm Ready!

Our Guides

Rebecca Haywood
 offers a unique perspective on healing that bridges the ancient to the modern and the spiritual to the practical. At the young age of twenty, she was led into a ten-year apprenticeship with a family of shamans, Mother Sarita and her son, bestselling author don Miguel Ruiz. Rebecca was welcomed into their home and was soon asked to carry on Mother Sarita’s lineage of healing. Under their loving tutelage, she mastered the ancient rituals of Mother Sarita and the Toltec Wisdom of don Miguel's mystery school of 'Dreaming'. Rebecca offers a non-denominational but powerful message that promotes a marriage of the human with Spirit. For it is Rebecca’s greatest wish that each may experience a genuine, attainable transformation that is wholly-nourishing and self-sustainable.

Though Mother Sarita passed in 2008, her energy continues in service to the healing of humanity. In life she dedicated herself as a Toltec Curandera, performing miracles and inspiring healers to embrace their gift. "All you need to heal is faith in yourself, faith in God, and faith in your Spirit Guide"; this was her message that she instilled in students and clients worldwide. Her son, don Miguel Ruiz, and her grandsons, Miguel & Jose, continue to share the Toltec Wisdom through their many best-selling books. Honored by the Women’s Society of San Diego, Mother Sarita lived to the age of 98 and continued her work up to the last day of her life.  Though she endowed her lineage of healing to her ‘spiritual granddaughter’ Rebecca Haywood, in truth, the presence of Mother Sarita is passed on to all who ask, filling their hearts and minds with the light of unyielding faith.
