Wounded Healer – Trauma Healing Blueprint
The Wounded Healer blueprint was launched in early 2017 and delivered highly focused immersions in holistic modalities for trauma release around core issues. Modalities include Breathwork, IFS (Internal Family Systems), Quantum Liberation, TRE (Trauma Release Exercises), Voicework, Cacao ceremonies, plant essences, Movement, Shamanic energy work, Sexological Bodywork and much more.
We created a large team of practitioners to enable groups and individuals to find suitable interventions and support for a variety of traumas. The activities led to more focused retreats and one to one integration sessions
The Lotus Programme has been delivering online & in-person training for upscaling consciousness, empowerment & spiritual sovereignty since 2016. This template for microcosmic empowerment is also the ‘launchpad’ concept for the Avatar mentorig programme and affiliated with Dharma Stars Platform. The lotus as archetype/totem is about working through our sludge as a vital nutrient to our higher, transcendental purpose becoming transmitters & receivers to higher forms of knowledge coming through & finding our place again in our ecosystems to accelerate alignment with the Earth. Victoria’s refuge name as given by Khentrul Rinpoche in 2020 is Padma Khandro – ‘Lotus Dakini’!
Dharma Sekhem Temple Arts Rejuvenation School (STARS)
Dharma STARS formed in 2021 and is a collective of holistic practitioners who care passionately about Natural Law, High Principles and Planetary Service. For us it’s important to be a grounded group of committed holistic Awakening facilitators who are connected to trusted knowledge systems.
The elimination of suffering of all beings is a massive task but together and with our affiliated networks we are committed to activating an initiative to train up a new ‘fleet’ of Shambhala Warriors.
Here you will find an array of amazing courses, holistic therapies, initiations and teachings to get you onto a deep path.
This portal in many ways holds dakini energy, and we are fiercely dedicated to heart-based action and service to communities.
Padma and Dharma Stars are deeply invested in assisting people to find their Highest Dharma and to prepare for the Golden Age/Aquarian Age/New Earth. Many prophecies suggest we are entering into a profound window of planetary transformation and our trainings are all given with this in mind.
We really aspire to be a High Level Cosmic Finishing School and are glad to also be students of Kalachakra Highest Yoga Tantra as taught by Rime Master Khentrul Rinpoche of the Tibetan Jonang tradition.
We volunteer and assist with some of Rinpoche’s activities and if you would like to connect to an authentic unbroken Tibetan lineage we can signpost you to this during your time with us. We recently planned and co-produced Rinpoche’s sharing of the Shambhala and Golden Age Prophecies with Dzokden Organisation in Tepoztlan, Mexico.
Conscious Festivals, Retreats and Events
Recently Victoria and Re-igniting the Ancient Ways organized shamanic and wisdom sessions with numerous tribal wisdom keepers for Boom festival. She also organizes retreats globally for empowering rainbow tribe, indigenous peoples and practitioners to step up into tribal unity consciousness and spiritual sovereignty, running approximately one retreat per month. She passes on healing and shamanic initiations in the Americas, Europe and Australia. Having spent much time listening to tribes, teachers and communities, Victoria, on occasions, is ready to share the messages she has received with audiences. She prefers to work in co-creative settings where a group consciousness can emerge and a wisdom flow can be created by all parties.
