Are you ready for more depth - in yourself and your life?
Spiritual Apprenticeship is often important on an evolving spiritual path, and is a commitment you make with Spirit to take the actions necessary to fully be your truth and light in the world. It is an understanding that you are creating your life, that the obstacles you face are of your own creation, and that they are based on the unique energy you came in with, coupled with your unique life circumstances as you grew up. On every spiritual journey, it helps to have a guide at times to move more quickly through your obstacles to freedom.
To support you to release what no longer serves you and to inspire you to move through the difficult areas with grace, we offer several forms of apprenticeship. Being led by someone with clarity and experience in the unweaving is a blessing, and working within a group builds more energy and support for everyone!
Reclaiming our spiritual integrity involves unweaving a lifetime of unconscious beliefs and behaviors. As you go deeper into yourself, many old patterns may arise causing doubt, self-judgment, fear, confusion, loss of inspiration and focus, and a difficult time staying on track. You may have experiences or perceptions you don't understand, mental chatter or strong emotions you are not sure what to do with, or a sense of stagnation you can't shake. You may also want more playmates, people who are on the same path and with similar challenges that you face in moving towards freedom and sacred depth.
Foundational work gives you the vocabulary, tools and framework to rebuild yourself from the ground up. A foundational program is often a pre-requisite for many of our advanced programs. If you are interested in becoming a Spiritual Integrity apprentice and being lovingly and clearly guided on your path, we will work with you to create an apprentice path with the support of our Spiritual Integrity Coaching Program, selected workshops and Power Journeys, and the following apprenticeship series:
SpiritWeavers – a Toltec Foundations Program
Inner Fire Healing Program
Sundoor Initiation (offered through Sundoor International)
SpiritWeavers is a six-month foundational Toltec Wisdom apprenticeship circle designed to support you on your return to Center. It gives you a foundation in Toltec practices and philosophy, while bringing a group of spiritual seekers and warriors together to go deeper in their own healing and the healing of the planet.
Working within a focused community allows access to greater energy and insights, enabling you to literally create a new foundation for yourself. The SpiritWeavers Apprenticeship offers you support, and challenges you to grow beyond your limitations to become the artist of your life. It is ecumenical in nature, weaving a wealth of traditions together as you apprentice to your highest self ~ however you define that.
As a SpiritWeaver you will experience:
Practice - Radical new ways of perceiving and living in the world.
Learn - Practical tools of awareness and transformation.
Create - A new and empowering vision of your life.
How SpiritWeavers Works:
Each group is facilitated by a guide trained by Toci - Toltec Center of Creative Intent. Once a month your local group meets with your Circle Guide for a full day of practical teachings, ceremony, energy work, and an all-night dreaming ceremony. Two week-day evenings a month your group will gather to study the basics of shamanic wisdom.
“For over 25 years every traditional means of self-empowerment eluded me. My teacher was an angel in disguise as she lovingly helped me identify how the Toltec teachings are a powerful tool of self-awareness, how to harness the beauty of my own natural being-ness, and help me understand how to weave a new transformed me. Spirit Weavers is nectar to your own self. I am grateful I chose to drink it.” Avalon, Round Rock, TX
“Spirit Weavers is one awesome life changing program! Your life will literally be transformed, a new way of looking at the world where you are the conductor of your orchestra in life. It is a gift to self as well as the world. Take this opportunity to completely transform your life and go for it, you will be completely amazed! Fantastic, life changing…your life will never be the same. Go for it, all you have to lose is your old paradigms that no longer serve you! Be the change in your world today!” Monique Barrow, Jewelry Designer, Austin, TX
“It is beautiful to witness a group of seemingly very different people drop our guards and learn to love ourselves and each other exactly where we are without judgment. This course is extremely valuable for anyone who is looking to learn from the places where we get 'stuck', and anyone seeking to love themselves more deeply." Mariela V., Austin, TX
“To me, SpiritWeavers was instrumental in helping me to open in ways that I never imagined possible. To say I feel renewed or rejuvenated feels like an understatement. I am thrilled about life. I’m thrilled about each step that I take. My life is a journey worth celebrating.” Sarah S., Homemaker, Georgetown, TX

Advanced - JUMP!
JUMP! is an intensive apprenticeship offered by invitation
only and by application. The purpose is to take a small,
dedicated group of people and dive right into whatever
obstacle is holding each person back, whatever interferes
with their living a life of 100 percent choice right now.
The primary intent of this group is complete freedom, to
fully live each moment, completely present, fiercely
alive, vibrant, and in awe at the incredible mystery of
this existence. It requires moving past your story and
opening to new possibilities and unimagined ways of
being. You should be prepared to challenge everything
in your life, to look at it honestly, and to evaluate
from a place of clarity whether it is serving you or
not. If you decide that it does not serve you, you will
need to be willing to take action to transform it into
something that will serve you or to remove it from your
Leading this advanced group, HeatherAsh and Raven pull
out all the stops and use tools and insights they do
not share with public forums and beginning apprenticeship
The time is now! The place is here! What are you
waiting for? In an instant, this lifetime will be over.
Every moment you are consciously or unconsciously
choosing how to live. Are you happy with your choices?
Realize that how you feel about your life in this moment
is how you will feel about it at the moment of your
death. We all want to reach the end feeling that we did
our absolute best, in full acceptance and love. So
seize the moment! Seize this opportunity to make a
new choice and a new commitment to going as far as
you can in this lifetime! - Raven
The next JUMP! apprenticeship will start at the end
of 2008 or beginning of 2009. Email us at

It's hard to believe that I have only worked with
Heather and Raven for three and a half years. In that
time, their wisdom, emotional depth, and gentle coaching
have blessed me by helping to make my life more real
and more joyful.
I was initially intrigued by the basic premise of
the JUMP! group: a small core group of dedicated
pilgrims committed to jointly deepen their internal
pilgrimages. The undertaking sounded daring and
thrilled my sense of adventure. Yet I had no conception
of how supporting and loving that new family would soon
become for me. Imagine my excitement and delight to
have nine new brothers and sisters to play with as we
walked our paths of unfolding together!
I chose to dive into JUMP! head first, and my eager
willingness to "wrestle the alligators" has yielded
fabulous results. After suffering from crippling
depression for decades, I have successfully rewired
my energetic patterns so that my depressive cycles
no longer occur. I have also vanquished the demon of
"Not Good Enough" that used to persistently
I am now confidently stepping into my own power
as a shamanic healer who regularly performs rituals
to purify, restore, and uplift those nearest and
dearest to me. I cannot accurately predict what
your JUMP! experience would be. But if you are
willing to step up to the challenge, you can expect
to discover a truer version of yourself, one that is
grounded more in divinity than society. So I urge you
to overcome whatever limiting factors may be holding
you back. Heather and Raven are pointing to a gateway
that gives you a chance to up the stakes. My advice
is to jump through it. - J.C., New Mexico
