These classes and circles are about reclamation and remembering. How do we do this?

We work with plant medicine that has been colonized & commercialized to the point of losing its "sacredness" or "coolness factor" in the greater realm as well as in Spiritual communities; such as cacao and tobacco.
To support the circle even further we not only teach or talk about these plant medicinas we grow these medicinas and are in deep connection with : coffee, cacao, corn, tobacco and more at our farm, Cuatro Manos Y Cinco Volcanes in Hawai'i.

Fire of Transformation


  • Claiming ourselves

  • Boundaries, interdependence

  • Tobacco and ceremony

  • Prayer ties

CLASS 1 : Leaving ourselves behind? / Fire The First Shaman.

In transformation many times we are told we need to cut cords, move on, not look back. Yet often in doing so we abandon parts of ourselves as well, and may reinforce colonized ideas of good vs bad, redemption vs punishment. Can we instead stay in the space between? 

CLASS 2: Boundaries / Tobacco and the Stone people 

How can we learn to not burn out? Fire is hungry and left alone it will consume anything, everything, and everyone. Can you identify your boundaries and know how to hold them from a place of love? Boundaries include intentions and tobacco grown in a sacred way teaches us how to stay focused on our purpose.

CLASS 3 : Interdependence/ Smoke and Wind 

Fire cannot exist on its own, and undergoes many transformations of form. How can you walk in a good way with its various forms and multiple relationships with the elements? Tobacco and its smoke represents our prayers and how they are offered.

CLASS 4 : Ceremony and Prayers /Prayer Ties

Prayer as a way of life, sacredness as a way of being. How everyday ceremony can keep our fire burning.

Before entering the circles at the Path of IX, I had completed various trainings in a range of modalities, yet no course or circle that I have experienced has come close to what Marita offers in their circles. Prior to becoming an official student, I was looking for a teacher that would help me bring healing and allow me to reconnect to my ancestral roots. 

Having come from a family of immigrants I recognised the intergenerational trauma that I was carrying that was affecting many facets of the way that I was living my life. In learning to reconnect with my lineage by honouring my ancestors and grief I have been learning to honour myself. This is allowing me to learn more about myself and practice radical self-acceptance and self-love which isn’t just taking care of myself and nurturing myself but also learning to be accountable and take responsibility for myself and my choices.  

What I love about the practices and tools that Marita so generously shares with their students is that they are not just spiritual teachings that are meant to be practiced in isolation from our everyday experience. They are practices and tools that are meant to be woven into our everyday life to help us navigate our relationship with ourselves, with others and the world around us.  As I have allowed these teachings to weave into my life and become part of me, I can’t imagine going back to a way of life that was keeping me stuck. 

Whilst this journey can be testing at times, Marita’s way of teaching invites me to extend beyond the edges of my discomfort in a way that is lovingly held. By learning how to live in relationship based upon the foundations respect, accountability and reciprocity, I am learning how to be in this world, knowing that I have free will and choice to be and so do you."
