Four Elements ~ The Void

Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 11.54.05 AMIn the Center of the Element Wheel is the void, the black hole or womb. The void works with all of the four elements. In fact, it is from the void, the apparent nothing, the source, that all things take on substance within spirit. This is the Chuluaqui Quodoushka energy that was mentioned in the creation story. The void works with the energy of open heart to heart communication. It is the catalyst energy that makes and keeps the other elements in a state of balance or imbalance depending on how it is used.

Ask yourself… Am I catalyzing my life in balance?

Connect with the Void energy if there is a dream you would like to birth, a potential you would like to actualize, or to bring more harmony and balance into your life!

More About Quodoushka Level 1 & Level 2 

Quodoushka 1: The focus of the first level of Quodoushka is about your individual sexual self. It’s a reclaiming of your personal energy and a Rite of Passage into a more natural, empowered way of appreciating your sexuality. Through the wisdom of these ancient teachings, you will gain an understanding of what keeps you from fully enjoying the intimacy, sex and love you deserve. The ‘Q’ experience will not only enhance your sex life; it will bring tremendous vitality and joy into your relationships, friendships, career and family.   

Quodoushka 2: The second level of Quodoushka is about embracing your new found sexual energy. You will also learn detailed shamanic lover’s techniques to share with a partner-whether you are in a relationship or are looking for one. The Quodoushka 2 exercises help you understand what you truly need as a man or a woman in order to enjoy a rich, healthy sexual life. You will return home knowing how to sustain more kindhearted intimacy in your relationships. As you learn skills to become a better lover, you will experience how honest communication paves the way for more sexual joy, passion and playfulness in your life. 

Please note, you can attend either Q as a free dancer or as a couple. Q1 is a prerequisite for Q2.  Are you ready to transform your sexual life?

Opening the Gates to the Human World, Part 3

Opening the gates to the human worldNote: December 21, 2012 was the final day in one of the Long Counts in the Mayan Calendar.  There were rumors that the end of that long count would also be the “end of the world”.  Within the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, this date represents the opportunity to enter a new world: the human world.  This is the third in a series, written by Janneke Koole, on the opening of the gates to the human world. In Part 3, we look at the Southeast and South directions in the prophecy.


The Orange Horse has always held the belief systems of the people concerning peace and all academic pursuits. We now know that external peace is only possible when we have internal peace, when inside ourselves we stop the war between our inner man/woman, when silence the inner dialogue enough to be receptive to truth.

The dark force feeds on all forms of ignorance. And when the people are fed only partial truths, when schools promote mediocrity and squelch free-thinking and true problem-solving, when our leaders and the media models spin-doctoring and double-speaks, then the children are in danger! And the children are the next generation, the future care-takers of Grandmother Earth and her Children.

What can we do to make a difference? Clear our wombs of all forms of pity and dedicate ourselves to develop benevolent compassion. Prepare powerful space of learning and growing for the children. Develop wombs that will welcome new spirits, dharma spirits. Train boys to become men who will seed their dreams of peace with freedom! Learn all about the teachings of the She Thoughts and the Quodoushka and anything that inspires you to express your individuality, your way with power and in beauty.


Rainbow Bridge Prophecies This is the place of the family, Earth Mother, and all the Earth Changes carried by the Red Horse. Grandmother Earth is and will always balance and re-balance herself. She is not in danger – we are! And yes, the earth is changing and we need to find new forms that promote deeper understanding of the Ecological Balance Laws. Study Nature – She knows what She is doing!!

What can we do to make a difference? We can do ceremony – especially at the times Grandmother Earth’s natural cycles (the seasons) and the Sister Moon (new moon and full moon). Make sure your homes are domed. Examine your lifestyle and restore greater value in your everyday environment. Encourage and support the Rites of Passage and honor all parents in their daily challenge to create family. Practice honesty and integrity in all your actions.

In Part 4, we look at the Southwest and Northwest directions of the prophecies. Click here for Part 4.

The teachings and ceremony at these events all come from the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path.

Book Launch: The Sexual Practices of Quodoushka

The Sweet Medicine SunDance Path features teachings and ceremony related to all of our human aspects: emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and sexual soul force energy.  The teachings on this path dealing particularly with the sexual soul force energy, or our life force energy, are called Chuluaqui Quodoushka.

Since 1985, hundreds of Quodoushka Spiritual Sexuality workshops have been offered, with thousands of participants worldwide, bringing an expanded view of sexuality and a healthy integration of spirituality and sexuality into everyday life.

However, these teachings have not been available in written form – until now!  The Sexual Practices of Quodoushka: Teachings from the Nagual Tradition, written by long-time Quodoushka instructor Amara Charles, was officially launched on Tuesday, September 27, with a book-signing party in Phoenix, AZ.  And, on that day, the book reached #1 Best Seller in Shamanism. #2 Best Seller in Mysticism and New Age Religion, #3 in Human Sexuality. Congratulations to all!

From the Forward by Thunder Strikes:

How many men and women could benefit from learning that they don’t have to go through relationships unconsciously or lose connection to their sexuality as they age? Quodoushka shows us that we can do something to sustain and increase our vitality in life. In order to remain healthy, full of energy and to thrive in a world faced with perilous decisions that effect all of our freedoms, you’ve got to get as close to God as you know how. Making love is the fastest and most beautiful way Creation has designed for human beings to be able to touch Spirit. Therefore, examine these teachings closely, question with boldness, search for the truth and find your own way into the heart of your circle of self.

The Sexual Practices of Quodoushka is also available from:
