We are so grateful for YOU; our donors, journeyers, apprentices, co-facilitators, and authors are critical to the Freedom Folk and Soul community!

 

Our community experienced a profound year of transformation while emerging from the challenges and isolation of the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

At Freedom Folk and Soul, we are deeply committed to the recovery, transformation, and personal freedom of every soul that steps into one of our programs.   Our core program, “The Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation'' is a map of transformation that invites people into and through the critical moments of their life as they honor, heal, and transform experiences to support them in living a joyful, fulfilling life.  
 

In 2022, over 100 journeyers and thousands of readers experienced profound transformation in our programs, book, or journeys!   We’re proud to share that a number of these individuals moved from active addiction to sobriety and recovery.

 

We graduated and ordained seven apprentices as Ministers of the Healing Arts who are becoming messengers of transformation in their communities.  Three of our graduates shared their perspectives:

“Working with Freedom Folk and Soul has been the single most helpful thing I have ever experienced. Not only have I addressed my addiction, but I have uncovered my true self; when I look in the mirror, I love myself. The year-long container of the Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation was vital to changing the structure of my ego. I have lasting change in my life, and I'm eternally grateful for the experience.” -Brandon, Texas

"In the Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation,  I exposed the roots of my life-long struggle with body shame and started the process of healing and lifting the heavy cloak of shame.   I have gained self-love and freedom in my body that I have never felt, and it is still growing.   I now walk through the world in a new way.  I love myself, and I am free in my body.  I am expressing emotions and not keeping them bottled up, and I am dealing with challenges head-on and not avoiding them. "  

-Tina, California

“Working with Freedom Folk and Soul over the last three years has been life-changing. Not only do they hold sacred space beautifully, but they also leave room for you to be the whole of who you are. This past year I had the opportunity to complete the Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation for the second time, this time as an apprentice. With grace, compassion, and a willingness to own my part, my time spent both experiencing the wheel while holding the container for my fellow traveling partners expanded my capacity as a human and a facilitator. If you have the chance to walk with them, do it.”

-Kelli, Georgia

For every person like Brandon, Tina, and Kelli, there are many lives touched, and there are many individuals at crossroads in their life who do not have financial resources to invest in their healing.

  • Teotihuacan, Mexico, with Laura DiFranco, CEO of Brave Healers Productions.

  • Peru with Jorge Luis Delgado, Shaman and Teacher,  for an immersion into Incan wisdom and ceremony at sacred sites.

I was truly lost and frozen when I met Stephanie and Jeremy and decided to join the Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation. In a year, my addictions have been cleansed from me, and my pain has turned into my medicine and purpose.  This experience has awakened my spirit and has taken me on an amazing journey to finding myself again. I’m roller skating, hula hooping, drawing /painting, reading, and cooking again after years of being stuck.  I recommend the Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation to anyone suffering from addiction, stuck, or lost In life!”

-Amy, Texas

 

“I have had two amazing trips with Freedom Folk and Soul. I instantly fell in love with Stephanie’s compassion and enthusiasm and Jeremy’s leadership and guidance. These two are authentic, heart-filled, compassionate teachers and leaders. They took me on the deepest journeys of my life and were amazing supports and healing guides along the way. I hope to continue taking trips, learning through their teaching classes, and growing with them as my witnesses. These two are one of the most real and loving people that I have met, and I’m very grateful to have them in my life.”

-Maddelynn, Illinois

 

“The Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation has helped me overcome addictions and old habits. In the past, I have tried to beat many addictions. All I would do is trade one for another. This program took me back to the origins and root causes of my addictions. This has helped me face my addictions head-on and come clean from abuse of prescription drugs and vaping nicotine. The greatest thing that resonates with me is I am now able to make new agreements about how I live and view my life. Most importantly, I have learned how to make my past struggles my medicine. This has helped me face and beat my addictions.”

-Dan, Texas  

 

“I joined Freedom Folk and Soul for the first-of-its-kind authors' journey to Teotihuacan, resulting in our collaborative book project Shaman Heart: Turning Pain into Passion and Purpose, published by Brave Healer Productions. I knew it would be life-changing, and it was. Even beyond my wildest dreams or expectations! I felt safe and cared for every step of the way, from the initial registration process, to planning our travel details, to arriving at the airport in Mexico City.  The experiences were all held in the most sacred of ways, and the food was spectacular, too. I will be forever grateful I said yes, took this leap of faith and surrendered to their capable and competent hands and hearts. It was an unforgettable journey of a lifetime.”

-Christine, California

 

“My journey through The Toltec Medicine Wheel of Transformation led me to heal in more ways than I ever could’ve imagined. I was at a point in my life where I didn’t see a way out of my suffering and addictions. I had never felt more alone, scared and hopeless. Through Jeremy and Stephanie’s teachings, support, breathwork, and the tools and modalities they use, I was able to retrieve parts of my soul that had been lost for so long. I finally returned home to myself and felt safe enough to feel it all. All the pain, anger and grief that I had been carrying inside of me for far too long. With the circle of our tribe, I felt heard, seen and understood for the very first time. I believe with my whole heart and soul that this program helped save my life. I am now feeling passionate about life with a deep sense of purpose. I recommend this program for anyone who is ready to transform their lives!”
