~Biography - Lisa Angela Diaz Espejo Starr~
Lisa’s Colombian/Puerto Rican heritage emerges today with the Medicine of the Drum.
She practices daily rituals and ceremonies much like her Great Grandmother, the village midwife and medicine woman in her day. For our contemporary times, Lisa draws upon her Ancestral Lineage and Ceremonial Shamanic experiences to recognize current earth cycles and patterns of modern day life within an ancient practice. Her wisdom, presence, creative talents can assist you in recognizing messages from nature and the messages from all your relationships around and within you. Understanding and identifying these messages is the first step toward self empowerment to bring confidence and peace in everyday life.

A proud and loving Mother to her two daughters, Alexandra and Sivana, to Padome, a chilean llama and to Mooshie and Panda, the kitties.
In my life as a traditional Medicine Woman in our contemporary times, I live and practice daily ritual beginning with greeting the sun in a ceremony with water, cornmeal and prayer. I call out prayers of gratitude for my life, for the life of my children and for the life all my relations. I practice inviting the divine union of Earth Mother and Sky Father into my being which ignites the light within.
When we call in the light into our body, our heart and our spirit we begin to see the esoteric mapping and patterns reflected in the mundane physical world. Synchronicity and messages are revealed within our interactions to one another, nature itself and all life around us. The illusion of separation of the Spiritual and Physical is revealed and becomes an illusion no more. If we pay attention, be aware and shift our perspective, these revelations become guides and allies for our actions and we begin to understand our purpose and our fears and challenges.
We learn how we are empowered co-creators of our lives.
I fall in Love with this divine orchestration of life and believe that this is where creation is born and reborn again.
I am grateful.
