The Power Path School of Shamanism

United States


Jose and Lena Stevens met and lived in Berkeley, California for twenty-two years. During that time, in addition to having successful careers, they pursued the study of psychic and intuitive skills with a variety of teachers, worked with the PersonEssence system for understanding people, which originated out of a channeled body of information, and undertook a decade-long shamanic apprenticeship with a Wixarika (Huichol) Maracame (shaman). All of the Power Path offerings over the years have evolved from these roots.

In 1990, they moved their family to Santa Fe, New Mexico where they incorporated as Pivotal Resources, Inc. with the intent of providing life coaching resources that would dramatically pivot people’s lives for the better. As they grew, the business became Power Path Seminars, Inc. and the School of Shamanism was founded to better reflect the overall intent to empower people to live to their highest potential.

They brought their daughter Anna on board in the late 1990s and began to work together, consulting and teaching. Lena and Jose have served on the Board of Directors of the nonprofit Society for Shamanic Practice since the 1990s. Lena continues to serve on the board alongside Anna, while Jose retired from the Board in 2022. In the early 2000s, they founded the nonprofit organization Center for Shamanic Education and Exchange, with the intention to support the indigenous wisdom from which they have benefited so much.

At their ranch in Northern New Mexico, they have been able to expand Power Path offerings to include wilderness solos, retreats, year-long training, and a place for people to acquire practitioner training and shamanic skills. The intent has always been to share indigenous wisdom based on their shamanic apprenticeship and training with the Wixarika of Mexico and the Shipibo of the Peruvian Amazon.



You are invited to join their powerful retreats this season in New Mexico!

Nature Solo Retreat | In person event
Santa Fe, NM USA
06-10 June 2024

Recognizing the importance of solo time in nature, The Power Path offers a solo retreat once or twice every year. They began offering this opportunity when they acquired their land in Northern New Mexico in 1994 and have done so ever since. Following the ancient shamanic tradition of spending ongoing alone time in nature and the tradition of the mystics to fast and isolate themselves in nature for meditation and prayer, they make this experience available for a wide variety of people.

Plenty of clean, fresh water is supplied, and to make the experience safe, more secure, and supportive they have a daily check in system that allows them to track the well-being of each participant. The solo is also supported energetically by on-site Power Path Practitioners offering prayers and checking in with participants energetically. Learn more and register

This is a very special gathering where John and Karen will offer accessible practices, ceremonies and rituals that experientially honour your calling to the Celtic way. They will work with ancient healing energies that await those who take the Immrama, Irish Gaelic (Gaeilge) for ‘Wonder Voyages’ to the Otherworld bringing empowerment, healing of personal and ancestral wounds, wisdom, vision, and magic.
