Tending to Covid Caretaker Fatigue

by Nov 10, 2020

About this Audio

As Covid continues to restructure much of our routines and dreams, we have an opportunity to tend to those who have been on the frontlines. Caretakers of all kinds, including healthcare workers, parents, first responders, essential workers, and others, have held much of the additional responsibilities from the pandemic. In this Shamanism without Borders process, we will attend to how we may support this group of people of service.

HOW TO PREPARE

Create sacred ceremonial space in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed by other people or loud noises. Make a small altar, light a candle and have your drum, and rattle available. Make sure your place is comfortable and allow yourself to be fully present.

Mary Olivar

A natural nurturer, part song-bird, part wise-woman. A tree-hugging, earth-mama-bear, Mary specializes in supporting people and businesses in harmoniously aligning with their true purpose, potential, and power. Her professional adventures have all been founded on promoting healing plants, vibrant healthy living, and an awoken consciousness. Dubbed the “Healthy Eating Guru” for Whole Foods Market, she led their Healthy Eating team in inspiring thousands of people to take charge of their health and consciousness. A graduate of the Power Path School of Shamanism Shamanic Studies program, Mary has completed their level 2 practitioner training. She has studied in Mexico with the Huichol and in Peru with the Shipibo. She is a member of the Board of Directors for the Center for Shamanic Education and Exchange, whose work perpetuates the shamanic wisdom, culture, practice, and traditional ways of life of Indigenous people worldwide. Mary is also a leader for Shamanism without Borders, the global response network of shamanic practitioners who tend to traumatic events. Deeply rooted in the nurturing vibration of Pacha Mama Earth, Mary primarily uses her voice to offer healing and tending. Mary particularly supports people in re-awakening their power and bliss through simple daily practices to deepen their innate love for nature and remember their core connection to all life. When not espousing the virtues of plants and finding one's joy, Mary can often be found in Austin, Texas, happily singing, dancing to live music, hunting for swimming holes, barefoot gardening, or creatively cooking for her husband and three well-fed children.

    I was amazed on how this was performed.
    With so much spiritual healing and blessing.
    This was very educational from start to finish.
    Very high standards of shamanic culture.
    I enjoyed being apart.

    *** was asked who had the 731 number on conference call..I’ve lived in Brooksville Florida for last two years.
    From Puryear Tn.
    And border State of Kentucky, city of Murray.
    Thanks again for letting me be apart of tending to Caregivers of Covid 19 fatigue and associated with food and farming industry.
