Doing our Collective Shadow Work to be Able to Birth the New Earth
To birth the new earth, we must have the courage to do the collective shadow work of facing colonization. In the Q'ero Inca tradition, they believe that every 500 years, we enter a new cycle and so we are currently experiencing the ending of the colonial cycle. We live in prophesied times, in which an opportunity to birth the new earth is possible. If we finally summon the courage to do decolonial shadow work, to not spiritually bypass the harm of colonization, we can return to balance & harmony.
In This Session:
- Why our collective shadow work is necessary to dismantle the harmful colonial world
- Why spirituality without decolonial work is spiritual bypassing
- How our internal work liberates our spirit to co-create the new earth
Dra. Rocio Rosales Meza
Dra. Rocío Rosales Meza, is a Xicana seer, Indigenous medicine woman initiated into the Q’ero Inca lineage, and counseling psychology PhD. She is also an unschooling mama. Dra. Rocio comes from a long line of seers and healers on both on her maternal and paternal sides. She was born with seer abilities and has chosen to honor the visions and gifts she has been given to serve and hold the highest vision for all.
Dra. Rocio’s path is that of a medicine woman. She is not a licensed psychologist, as she is not aligned with the colonial field. Dra. Rocio’s work is at the intersections of decolonizing, spirituality, and wellness. She walks and works in between the earthly and spiritual realms and often feels her work is “too decolonial for the spiritual world and too spiritual for the decolonial world." She lives at the intersections of spiritual and decolonial to bring in the new world that is being asked to be birthed in this space and time. Dra. Rocio's lived experience of being raised by a single mother, growing up working poor, and coming from a lineage of parents and grandparents that grew up in poverty, she has an intimate understanding of the harm of colonial empire.
At the core, Dra. Rocio’s work is about healing from humanity’s collective shadow, colonization. She deeply believes in dismantling the white colonial capitalist patriarchy as she believes it is these very systems that have made us unwell. She believes that this work begins with self in decolonizing the mind to unlearn harmful colonial programming because it is people that uphold systems. Her work can be described as decolonial healing and decolonial shadow work, as it addresses layers at both the conscious and unconscious levels. Dra. Rocio offers teachings and facilitates healing to all peoples that believe a better world is possible and feel called to doing their part to co-create it.
Dra. Rocio works with Black, Indigenous, women, and femmes of color through her sacred virtual community, The Decolonial Healing Collective, and online offerings. Her work with women and femmes of color is to facilitate mental, emotional, and spiritual healing from an ancestral and decolonial perspective. Through her work she guides women and femmes of color to uncover blocks to their healing and liberation so that they are no longer in servitude to the colonial patriarchy.
She also works with white folks wanting to deprogram and unlearn white colonial programming so they can serve as accomplices in the movement. “Unlearning & healing from the white colonial mind” is a class and sacred circle for white spiritual, empathic folks that embrace their divine feminine, have been doing their anti-racism work, and are ready to do the deeper work.
As a medicine woman, Dra. Rocio knows that collective healing and liberation begins with healing self so that we can then act in ways to bring back the times of harmony and balance with all of humanity, Mother Earth, and all of creation. She honors her Indigenous lineage and Elder & Teacher Pampamesayoq Don Alejandro Apaza from the Q’ero Inca Nation for the transmissions and initiation, and for opening her heart to do this work with all folks to help birth the new world we are seeking. She also honors Medicine Woman Marilu Shinn for her teachings and initiation as a medicine woman. Both of these teachers have helped Dra. Rocio remember and strengthen her connection to the lands and her Indigenous lineage.
