"Fear doesn't exist in real life. Only love exists. Love means taking that first step towards unaltered consciousness. You're seeking freedom then. You become a lion and not a sheep. This freedom from with-in allows for a deep connection with Mother Nature. Believe in what she is offering you.
It's time to return to the interconnectedness with Mama Pacha and all sentient beings upon her."
"No more fear. Only Love." ~mis Guías
The last three years has tested humanity in ways never before experienced---emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. We've been given the opportunity to face ourselves--the traumas, painful memories, deepest fears, to do the difficult inner work in order to begin healing at a soul level never before imaginable. When we emerge from the darkness, things are radically different. Re-member that you're a child of the Sun, bound to the laws of our beloved Mama Pacha. You're a being of purity, of love, of Divine Light. Purity is the seed of integrity and truth, and it's Divinely sacred. Deceit of any kind dishonors you and your entire lineage (7 generations back and 7 generations forward). This is the time to dig deep, discover your courage, and stand tall in your true purity, in your Heart, and in your Mastery. Dawn Eagle Woman says it best: "You are the living hope of ALL your ancestors." If you wish support and assistance in moving forward, go to "contact me" page.Learn More
The physical body manifests dis-ease when deeper issues aren't resolved. These issues may fall into many categories, some of which are trauma, abuse, PTSD, addiction, unresolved emotions/memories, etc. Although western medicine can assist with many physicalities, it lacks the connection to the consciousness of the human body. All organs, endocrines, body parts and general body tissues have their own individual consciousness. In the esoteric, this connection is restored. The body is allowed to re-member, re-connect, re-balance and re-align its systems. You do the work. I simply witness to the miracle of you and your own healing abilities. Testimonials speak for themselves. For a session, go to "Contact Me" page.

All animals are sentient beings. The animal world and human world are setting a new reality. The more peaceful one is inside, the more aligned with nature, the more aligned we are with all sentient beings. Animals sense and know according to the stillness of the human. When we live from our heart and sit in this stillness, then the pure love of us can radiate into the golden silence that the animal world lives in. The animal kingdom's wisdom extends far beyond our comprehension. They're pulling us into a new higher frequency direction. As we connect more deeply with Source, we connect just as deeply with them. For a sitting with your animal(s), go to "Contact Me" page.Learn More
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

"Acción correcta, nacida en el amor, guiada por la sabiduría." These are the times of the rising of the Sacred Divine Feminine in all of us, whether you are man or woman. The most important part of the Sacred Feminine is freedom. Pachamama is absolutely free. The Sacred Feminine is delicate, often vulnerable, but not weak. This is the moment you begin your transformation into unaltered consciousness, your liberation from the pain, trauma and addictions of the past, and welcome back the fragmented pieces of your soul, and transcend what you may perceive as limitations. If you wish support or assistance, go to "contact me" page.Learn More
The drum is a sacred healing tool with a unique spirit. Drumming is a way to align with Divine, as has been experienced since ancient times, through native spiritual and shamanic healing practices. The drum rhythm reminds the body of its optimal vibration and returns us to our heart center, and to the heartbeat of Pachamama.Learn More
"My experience with Charla Cooper is that she is a gifted, generous healer who can connect, guide, and support deep energic-level healing using esoteric knowledge and skills. We have only worked together remotely, but it is a seamless, effective experience. During our sessions, Charla's insights resonate and transform what is needed with an almost fairy godmother-like energy. Her abilities to access realms outside of my experience have aided in my mind-body-spiritual cohesiveness and healing. I have had the opportunity to work with her personally on my healing journey, as well as with my beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback dog's spontaneous mystery pains. Given mine and my dog's experiences with Charla, I also introduced her to my father. Additionally, Charla is resourceful in sharing recommendations to other relevant professionals and supportive information. Much love."~ Kelly V., Pleasanton, CA
"Charlene is amazing! And so is her conversation ability with animals! We knew nothing about her or this kind of healing until searching for new answers to a health issue that Seamus, our 14-year old Border Collie, was experiencing. To witness the changes in his energy, brightness, and movement after each session was incredible. We are forever believers in this body-spirit communication, and are so grateful to Charlene for helping our absolute best friend."~ Debbie W., Pleasanton, CA
"I have had the pleasure of receiving sessions with Charlene for over a year. Her work has radically shifted not only my personal health and well being, but the well being of my animals as well. Her approach is thoughtful and deeply insightful. She approaches healing on a level that surpasses just the physical. She has helped me through some challenging times with my horse. She was able to not only shift our physical and emotional states, but her work deepened my understanding of his perspective and allowed us to move forward gracefully. Charlene’s work has become an integral part of my wellness program and the wellness program for my animals. I recommend her work to anyone!"~ Dr. Tracy Rainwaters, DC; Equine Chiropractor
"Last week was a very bad week for me. It started with slight cramping in my left, side ribcage when I'd breathe deeply. Then it progressed to cramping as I slept to cramping with normal breathing to cramping even when I was breathing shallowly. The cramping wrecked my sleep two nights in a row so I took half a Tramdol, which worked OK. Next night half a Tramadol did nothing. Next night took a whole Tramadol, which worked OK. Next night whole Tramadol did nothing - you get the picture. Talked with cardiologist on Sunday who said "let's do some testing on Monday." I also scheduled a session with the Panamanian Curandera, Charlene Cooper, who I've done a lot of work with with my animal companions over the past couple of years. After the session, symptoms were gone and haven't come back! I want everyone to know about this kind of healing option because it seems like there is a lot of automatic deference to the medical establishment at the expense of other modalities of healing. The conclusion I've come to is that the medical establishment is left brain in the extreme; left brain at the expense of anything right brain. Problem is, to be healthy and whole, we need wholeness, we need balance between the left and the right brain worlds. The last thing I'd ever do is suggest that anyone should eschew the medical establishment. For Heaven's sake, they just saved my life. What I would like everyone to consider is that if you have a health challenge or crisis, use modalities from the right brain orientation as well. There are many practitioners who are there to help. Charlene is one of them, skilled in different kinds of energy medicine, and she is one that I consider particularly good. To say that I'm ecstatic to finally be sleeping again is an understatement."~ D. Goldeen, Palo Alto, CA
"After hearing about Charlene's work for nearly a year, I finally had the pleasure of having a session with her. Since it was my first-ever introduction to this kind of session, she made sure I was very relaxed and comfortable before starting. I had a lot of questions that she answered clearly, helping me to feel more confident in her work. My neck had been killing me for over a week, and I had no idea why. During the session, several non-physical explanations and energies were brought to my attention as causes. As quickly as they were brought up, they were just as quickly resolved because the very next morning the pain had reduced substantially. Just as she predicted, the debilitating pain cleared up entirely in only 3 days. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to experience her healing techniques, and I’m already looking forward to my follow-up appointment!"~ Tyler W., Walnut Creek, CA -- Elite Ultrarunner
"Recently, I broke my arm. I began distance healing sessions with Charlene in order to facilitate my recovery. The experience was unexpected, in that she didn't just focus on the arm. Palpable energy was sent to my entire body, to each system, bringing the full power of my physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies to bare on my healing. Deeper yet, she uncovered emotional blockages and accurately stated the years that they occurred. I give much love and gratitude to Charlene for aiding in my speedy recovery."~ Greg I., Shamanic Practitioner, Napa, CA: Distant Healing Session
"My horse, Dancer, was kicked in the hock. The wound became infected. It was unclear whether or not the wound had violated the joint fluid sack so Dancer was trailered to and treated at the equine hospital. He wasn’t responding as well as desired to the treatment. The vets continued to be concerned about the integrity of the joint. He wasn’t getting worse, but he wasn’t getting better. At that point I contacted Charlene, the Panamanian Curandera, who previously had done sessions with my dog with great results. The morning after his session with Charlene, Dancer showed dramatic and remarkable improvement in his condition. It is unlikely that the course of antibiotics he was on was responsible for the improvement as he’d been on the antibiotics and pain meds for four days before Charlene’s session with him."D. Goldeen, Palo Alto, CA: ~ Animals Speak
"Thank you for joining the CARDA event. I wanted to let you know that Annie (canine) has released her anxiety to driving in the car. We drove from California to Arizona for a search and she had no anxiety in the car. Thank you!"Kris B. and Annie, CARDA Search & Rescue: ~ Animals Speak
"My experience with Charlene's healing sessions for both myself and my horse have been so helpful and truly life changing. Charlene is able to connect the mind, spirit and energy to parts of the body allowing for blocked traumas or past memories to be released. This has been so helpful not only in my personal life, but in my career as a professional horse trainer. I better understand myself and my horse, creating a stronger partnership in and out of the show ring while making me a healthier, happier person. Thank you!"Jessica Greer Dressage, Berthoud, CO: ~ Dressage Horse Trainer
"My beautiful dog, Queenie, is a rescue. When she came to our home, she seemed to adapt quite well. But slowly her anxiety escalated. She was constantly pacing and nervous, and then began trying to bite friends and neighbors. A friend of mine referred me to Charlene. At first I was very skeptical. I knew nothing about energy work, and couldn't believe someone in a distant city would be able to help my dog. But it became quite evident right after our first session that something had changed with Queenie! So I scheduled another session, and another, and another. With each session, more and more changes occured--beautiful changes. Today Queenie is a happy, calm and loving dog. Thank you Charlene! We are eternally grateful."Tina F., Denver, CO: ~ Distance Sessions
"My handsome sweet 11-year old Pit Bull, Tyson, was diagnosed with a terminal mast cell tumor. I was searching for a miracle when I discovered Charlene and distance sessions on her website. For our first session she had me send her a photo of Tyson, specifically of his face and the tumor present on his muzzle. An hour later she called me and revealed information about myself and my pooch that shocked me with its detail, accuracy and clarity. She knew of an m.c.t. previously removed on his rear leg, and also about his spleen which had been removed at age 5. Now confident in her abilities and her peaceful and joyful spirit, which you can't help but feel, we scheduled another session. During the second session she went into deeper details of the internal chemistry affecting Tyson in lengthy detail. She observed things about my emotions and how they related to Tyson, who was internalizing my anxiety and sadness. Our third session involved getting me in the right place, emotionally and mentally, so that I could put him in a better place. Charlene already knew Tyson was transitioning. Charlene helped Tyson and me cope so well that we enjoyed a happiness and bonding until his final breath. I am so grateful to her for helping us both reach such clarity and understanding that I am certain would not have been there otherwise. Thank you so much!"Pete G., Pittsburgh, PA: ~ Distance Sessions
"Before receiving Reiki from Charlene, I was stuck in debilitating darkness desperately seeking a way out. During my session with her, she helped me release a deep inner darkness so that light could enter and fill me with renewed hope. With seamless integration of Reiki, crystals and essential oils, she facilitated a marvelous shift that empowered me to move forward. I am forever grateful."Vanessa W., Saratoga, CA
"For the very first time in a long time, I feel like myself again! As you know, I had been extremely lethargic, feeling heavy with no energy at all, and so sick that when I'm home, I go to bed and stay there without energy to even eat. I had tried massage, acupuncture, colonic cleanses and chiropractic without result. I was very discouraged, scared and tired. After my session with you I felt a huge difference. I thought I would get home and fall into bed as usual. But instead I went shopping! Then I came home, went to dinner with my kids, and then out on a date! I returned home at 9:30 pm, stayed up until 10 pm, slept through the night, and woke up feeling energized the next morning. This is a far cry from going straight to bed without dinner because of how awful I had been feeling! Thank you so much for helping me. I feel normal again."R. Smith, Alamo, CA
"Thank you for helping Frieda! She is now a happy dog and communicates with my daughter. You made all the difference for her life."Nancy M., Denver, CO: ~ Distance Sessions
"The balancing session Charlene did for my property brought what felt like a calming gentleness to my home. If I had known what a difference a session like this could make, I would have done it years ago! Small price for such peace. Thank you!"Betty Jean L., Alamo, CA: Matrix Balancing for Property
"I have been seeing Charlene for healing sessions for over six months. I love my sessions! These sessions have helped me cope with stress, fear, grief, skin issues and pregnancy discomfort. I feel more focused and clear-headed after every session. Charlene is very intuitive and understanding of the body. I am so happy I found her. It is simply amazing! Thank you!"Nicole J., Livermore, CA
"Charlene is a remarkably intuitive Reiki Master. I had an incredibly stressful week at work, but was at peace and re-charged after my treatment. Charlene's sessions have a meditative quality, and her healing hands leave me transformed. Thank you!"Ann D., Diablo, CA
"Today's session was so helpful for me. I always feel deeply refreshed and right again after a session with Charlene. The AromaTouch® along with the Reiki is really gentle, yet so powerful. Thank you for offering your unique gift of support and well-being. It is so much more than a treat for myself, although it is that too!"Kathy L., CST, Pleasanton, CA: Cranial Sacral Technician
"My five-year old Labrador, Maverick, had a diagnosis of liver fibrosis. This diagnosis has been very devastating to our family. When Charlene worked with Maverick, one of the most important things she did was to include me in the session. This allowed me some meditative time to release all the worry I had been having about Maverick. As a professional horse trainer, I know that our animals are usually more in tune with our emotions than we give them credit for, and part of Maverick's healing and releasing of this worry would start with me. The day following our session with Charlene, Maverick was back to his playful self!"Crystal Forsell Dressage: Horse Trainer
"Charlene started energy work on my Yorkie, Whiskey, during a time when he was having trouble with a bacterial infection due to problematic teeth. Within a day of his session, his energy shifted and his bowel movements completely changed to perfect after having had loose stools for six months and have remained regular since. He also had to have all 28 of his teeth pulled, but at ten years of age, this was a huge risk. We had the teeth removed and he recovered like a rockstar. I truly believe Whiskey wouldn't have been able to have his surgery without his sessions with Charlene, and he had such a quick recovery that even his surgeon was amazed. Charlene has an amazing gift!"Dwight Davis, Oakland, CA: ~ Believer for Life!

Please join Greg Iadarola and me as we offer a Solstice Despacho Ceremony, via zoom, this Wednesday, 12/21, beginning at 6:30pm PT. We honor the approaching light as we hold gratitude for the work we have done in the dark of winter.

Everything flows peacefully. Negativity cannot touch us because we are now aligned to a frequency that is pure love. A Despacho is a prayer offering, fashioned as a mandala. They are then offered to the Earth, to moving Water, or to Fire. This Ceremony is free and open to all, no matter their experience. We will open the "doors" at 6pm, start at 6:30pm PT and continue until complete.

This transit through the Scorpio Gate under the light of Antares is an important moment in our Galactic Evolution, and the energies are intensifying accordingly.

IMPORTANT UPDATE for our HARVEST FULL MOON DESPACHO CEREMONY! Due to heavy rain and high winds and a family emergency, Greg and I are cancelling todays Despacho ceremony in Alameda. We are sorry for the short notice, but as they say....when it rains, it pours. I will be doing a Despacho Ceremony in my home and will offer it to Mama Quocha at a later date. Blessings y Munay!
You and yours are invited to join Greg Iadarola and me as we honor and celebrate the New Moon with a Despacho Ceremony. Coming out of the Fall Equinox, October's New Moon is appropriately in Libra, as we sit in balance. We are being offered a new beginning. We can re-set and re-align with the new incoming energies of unconditional love, which will allow us to step into our integrity, our honesty, our Highest Most Illuminated Self. It is a time of taking action, using our voices, our gifts, yet doing it all with kindness and compassion. Avoid partaking in anyone's drama. See it for what it is... his/her drama, not yours. This New Moon provides us with the ability to move forward with laser sharp focus, "one step at a time." (Isn't there a song about this?) :-) Find joy and humor with-in and with-out, and give yourself time to step into stillness and balance. Bring your prayers and intentions for this sacred time, offerings for the Despacho, music makers and songs. Also, anything you will need to be comfy at the park, and perhaps some snacks to share! We look forward to sitting with you all. To RSVP or ask any questions you might have please email Greg: Karma_Kunzang@outlook.com We are asking for a small exchange of Ayni, $10-$20, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Please join Greg Iadarola and me as we sit in the balance between Father Sun and Mother Moon, and offer two Fall Equinox Despacho Ceremonies, sitting in gratitude for the beautiful Summer behind us and, with intention, calling in the bounty of the Fall season to come. The creation of a Despacho is a wonderful way to give Ayni, or sacred reciprocity, to all of our helping Spirits, seen and unseen. We give back with plant, mineral, animal, human made and sweet offerings that we have spoken our gratitude and prayers into. Then we create a beautiful mandala with our offerings and complete the offering by applying beautiful, colorful flowers! First we will gather at Stinson Beach on September 19th, bringing our Ceremony to Wilka Yaku Mama Qucha, the Sacred Waters of Mother Ocean. This event also finds us sitting upon the cusp of the Full Moon, and we will be performing a special water ceremony during this Ceremony, to honor Mama Yaku, Mother Water, so that she may feel our gratitude, our appreciation, our respect, our love, our prayer onto her. We are in transition to enter into the New Earth, la Nueva Tierra. Tomorrow's earth, a world of love, of Munay, has already been created in spirit. Yet it will not show itself amongst the fear, the panic and the manipulation. Mama Yaku is so important in this process of creating the New Earth. She is powerful because she is the mother of all emotions. She is like the oil in an engine. Without it, the engine cannot work properly. In this same manner, the breath of life is being created through the water. Mama Yaku is flowing and carrying with her the frequencies needed to move us forward into the New Earth. When: Sunday September 19th. Meet at 11:00am. Ceremony starts at Noon, completes around 4:00 Where: Meet in the Stinson Beach parking lot. Look for the flowers on top of my car! What to bring: Everything you'll need for a day at the beach---blanket, hat, water, sunscreen, beach chair and snacks. Any small offerings of plant, mineral, animal, human made and sweets and/or a hand written prayers or poems. These offerings will not be returned. Your voices, musical instruments and Medicine Songs! A Sacred item to collect the beauty and energies of the day, to place upon the Mesa, the Central Altar. This item will return home with you. Most important of all is to bring your intentions and prayers for this powerful time. Cost: Sliding scale of $10-20. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

"The Light has come. You're at peace, and wherever you go, you'll bring peace" ~Neda Boin, musician. You and yours are invited to join me and Greg Iadarola as we honor and celebrate the Green Corn Full Moon (also a seasonal Blue Moon) with a Despacho Ceremony, August 22nd, at Baker Beach at the Presidio from 11am to 3pm. With this Full Moon we will offer blessings and healing to the water. We call the elements to return to balance. We will also be calling in the consciousness and energies of this remarkable time, a time in which we learn to awaken our Sacred Heart with love and compassion and to stand in our Sovereign power. The teaching of the Sacred Heart is, above all, a teaching of empowerment and balance, the central balance point of our Being.
Please join Greg Iadarola and me at a Despacho Ceremony celebrating the beautiful New Moon in Leo on Sunday, August 8, at Muir Beach, CA. This New Moon arrives on the same day alongside the opening of the Lion's Gate portal. This Ceremony will also be acknowledging the opening of the Lion's Gate portal, also known as the infinity gate. We mindfully align ourselves with the flow of creation and connect to the new heart-based behavior that we are modeling for the new Earth. We choose to stand totally in the present moment, to live only in the present moment, so that we can move through the Lion's Gate without being pulled away by old energies of anxiety, depression, unfulfilled desires, anger, etc. It is the time to release all that is preventing us from stepping into our sovereign power and realizing our full potential. We offer to Grandmother Moon all that does not serve us and ask for her assistance in bringing in pure love, compassion and Light! Two questions to ponder: 1) Have you released the past and your attachment to the past? 2) Have you released the future and your expectations of the future? Bring your prayers and intentions for this sacred time, offerings for the Despacho, music makers and songs. Also, anything you will need to be comfy at the site and perhaps some snacks to share afterward! To RSVP or ask any questions you might have please email Greg: Karma_Kunzang@outlook.com

Crown Memorial State Beach, Alameda, California, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. During this Summer Solstice Ceremony we will honor Inti Tayta, Father Sun, on the day before the longest day of the year.

Nothing is coincidence. Everything is synchronicity. Everything is Divinely orchestrated. Email announcing ceremony didn't go out. Family emergency didn't allow Greg to co-host ceremony in Napa. Extreme fire danger warnings posted for weekend. In essence, I changed location of ceremony to Robert Crown Beach in Alameda with the intent of balancing water-fire elements and honoring the re-birth process we are in. I was alone to do this Despacho amongst many families enjoying their day at the beach. The children were so interested. Parents didn't seem to mind them being around me observing and listening to my singing, and I'm tone deaf so you can imagine! :-) As I began folding the paper, it broke open. Not from the sides, but right on the bottom. Whaaat??? I've not ever seen this happen before. Everything began falling out. So I pulled it together as best I could, wrapped it with the base layer of manta (cloth), picked it up like a newborn baby and carried it into the ocean with me against my chest. Surprisingly (or not...), the water was not even cold. It felt warm against my skin. I felt so happy, so blessed, filled with love. I gently allowed the contents in the manta to fall into Mama Qocha, offered prayers of gratitude and unconditional love to her and Mama Pacha, and watched as all the flowers spread and listened to the joyful screams and laughter of the children as they saw the flowers washing up the shore. It was an amazing moment. One I'll never forget and cherish forever. I felt such peace, such bliss, such a balm of healing for my heart which had been broken. To top it off a beautiful sister wrote to me and said: "We are giving birth to a new Earth, a new humanity! Maybe that's why you couldn't wrap the Despacho yesterday and you were alone to give it to the water. Indeed the baby was born!"
We honor the Full Moon, give Ayni (sacred reciprocity) to Pachamama and tend to the land of the Lafayette Reservoir with a Despacho Ceremony. With the Full Moon we release what no longer serves us or our planet. This Sunday, specifically, we will release obstructions keeping us from stepping into our Truth, impediments to our self-care and self-love and anything that holds us back from stepping into our innate power as a sovereign being. When: Sunday April 25, 2021 11am-3pm Where: Lafayette Reservoir, Lafayette, CA What to bring: Prayers crafted for this time. Offerings for the Despacho. Music makers. Your voice to sing. What you'll need to be comfy, seated along the edge of the reservoir. To RSVP or ask any questions you might have please email Greg Iadarola at: Karma_Kunzang@outlook.com - or me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you ever experienced any of these---personal trauma, family crisis (medical or relationship), severe illness or health problems, family or environmental crisis, self-doubt and inner confusion. If you answered "yes" to any one, you are not alone. This may be the one quiet step towards healing that you've been longing for. Savor a meditative state in which your body relaxes and begins deep healing at a cellular level. Sometimes no words need spoken, just sound, whose unique vibration and frequencies resonate within the body at different levels. Experience a Shamanic "limpia" (cleansing) to further support the body in healing.
