Eli began his journey as a healer at the age of 17. Eli grew up in Woodstock, NY and since a young age has been immersed in the spiritual world as he has lived and worked at both The Omega Institute and Blue Spirit Costa Rica - Eli graduated from the University of British Columbia where he completed a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources Conservation – Eli hopes to bring his scientific knowledge of natural systems and his growing understanding of the indigenous people's wisdom to help society come back into right relationship with nature.
He has studied with the indigenous shamans in the forests of South America, and his work draws from the knowledge of the ancestors in that area. The lineage that Eli follows is carried by Taita Juan from the Siona and Ingano tribes of Colombia. These studies were furthered with a shamanic lineage of the Peruvian Andes, whereby he became a full mesa carrier. His journey has taken him to the depths of the Amazon jungle to learn about their medicinal plants and his healings include illuminations, extractions, soul retrievals and death rites. Each year he leads healing retreats with people from around the world. He lives in Costa Rica, where he has his own shamanic healing practice and continues to visit Colombia a few times a year for further studies. His life mission is to be of greatest service to the planet and to awaken all beings by showing them that what they are all searching for in their lives is within themselves already.
Eli is passionate and dedicated to assisting the spread of shamanism but to also maintain the sacredness of these traditions. This is a path that must be taken seriously and respected in order for us to preserve instead of exploit the beauty of these ancient traditions - He sees how the Shamans and different indigenous lineages have utmost respect and reverence for Nature and that the outside world desperately needs to regain this relationship - As we move forward Eli hopes that the Nature Within can be a steward to connect people of all parts of the world with some of the true remaining spiritual guides and teachers. Those who can help us remember our indigenous roots and how to re-connect our heart's pulse to that of mother nature's.
Eli's life mission is to be of greatest service to the planet and to awaken all beings by showing them that what they are all searching for in their lives is within themselves already. From here we will come together as one family to heal the Earth and all the beings around us.
Always walking with love and devotion for this planet and all of its relations
