Healing: Lucid LifeCare
Integrative, preventative, and holistic wellness
Jungian & Intuitive Dreamwork
An integral foundation in various approaches to dreamwork — especially Sufi and Indigenous approaches — combines with PhD-level scholarly training in Jungian & Archetypal depth psychology to create Lucid LifeCare intuitive dream interpretation and Dream Yoga coaching.
This practice includes:
Monthly one-on-one sessions with individual clients
Tribal and collective dreamwork sessions with groups
Communal Counciling & Mediation
In addition to one-on-one coaching for individual clients, we also offer tribal council for couples and communities.
The tribal council practice ranges from couple’s mediation to group processing circles and traditional talking ceremonies.
Influences in our approach to tribal council include indigenous traditions from Colombia, Peru, and the States, as well as the Tibetan debate tradition, Authentic Relating & Non-Violent Communication, various schools & techniques of psychology, and Sufi Sohbet.
Facilitator Certification Course
This course is designed to train and prepare facilitators of various Lucid LifeCare and Lucid LifeCare -related modalities.
Lucid LifeCare modalities beyond Jungian coaching and dreamwork include T’ai Chi & Qi Gong, breathwork, several variations of seated meditation, and medicinal cacao.
Although modern scientific findings often reiterate the older, time-tested knowledge of esoteric traditions, we do recognize the importance of scientific evidence for many people and are inspired to see that modern studies have confirmed the benefits of Lucid LifeCare.
Scientific research agrees that all of these additional Lucid LifeCare modalities are highly effective forms of holistic wellness and preventative healthcare. You can learn more about the science here.

Spirituality: Way of the Winds
T’ai Chi, Breathwork, Zikr, & Saint Peter
East: Taijiquan & Qigong
“T’ai Chi Ch’uan” (also known as “Taijiquan”) refers to the “Great Separation of Yin and Yang” and is a practical application of Qi Gong. T’ai Chi is an Internal Martial Art — which means that, instead of using external force, it trains us in an alchemy of personal transmutation. T’ai Chi can be used as an ongoing path of spiritual, psychological, and physical self-development.
“Qi Gong” literally means “Energy Work”. It trains the practitioner to conduct “Qi” (vital life-force energy) through the “Dan Tiens” (energetic centers) and “Meridians” (energetic passageways) of the subtle body — thus becoming a human conduit between Heaven and Earth. We are trained and certified to instruct Qi Gong & T’ai Chi Elements in the lineage of Professor Cheng Man-ch’ing.
South: Amazonian Primordial Breathwork
Amazonian Primordial Breathwork is a shamanic practice of deep catharsis. Guided by rhythmic movement and vocalization, it alchemically eliminates the imprints and blockages in every Chakra and thus reveals our original nature. We received this particular breathwork technique from the Paititi Institute, who adapted it from the indigenous breathwork practices of the Yanomami people in the Amazon rain-forest.
West: Inayati-Maimuni Zikr
Zikr means “Remembrance” and refers to the remembrance of God as the only reality, at one with the totality of existence. It is a form of prayer that combines the chanting of sacred syllables with rhythmic somatic movements within a seated meditation practice. Zikr illustrates the journey of grasping at emptiness, which eventually drives us inwards, where we discover the spirit and find refuge within the heart.
The Inayati-Maimuni Order is a Universalist Sufi-Hasidic lineage founded by Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and rooted in the esoteric knowledge of ancient Egypt, from which all Abrahamic traditions derive. Honoring the blessings passed between Reb Zalman and Pir Vilayat Inayat-Khan, and echoing the interfaith practices of Egyptian Rabbi Avraham Maimuni (1186-1237), the Inayati-Maimuni Order bridges the universalist Sufi transmission of Hazrat Inayat-Khan with the mystical Hasidic teachings of the Ba’al Shem Tov.
As an open Halqa led by an initiated Zakir, we are authorized to practice Zikr by Netanel Miles-Yepez, who is the current Pir of the Inayati-Maimuni Order.
North: Intertribal Rites of Passage
Way of the Winds retreats are authorized by our Taino elder, Maestro Manuel Rufino, who carries an Intertribal Altarplace where we have been studying the Universal Initiatic Tradition for several years.
The Intertribal Altar was created during a gathering of indigenous elders in Mexico in 1983. It is intentionally designed to serve the new generation of seekers who are coming from diverse cultural backgrounds to access the most ancient Native American wisdom traditions in a new and universal way.
The Initiatic Tradition is a spiritual mystery school of timeless ancestral wisdom, founded by Dr. Serge Reynaud de la Ferriere — who is considered the Avatar of the Age of Aquarius. He passed the tradition to his disciple, the Elder Brother, Maestro Jose Manuel Estrada, who then passed it to our teacher’s teacher, Ven. Maestro Domingo Dias Porta.

Born to Russian immigrants in Boston, MA, Alec has been an integral part of Worldchangers Organization since it was first conceived. He has a degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University and is focused on applying technology to a heart-centered paradigm shift for planet Earth. In high school, Alec created an algorithm that automates part of the corneal transplantation procedure, which saves the eyesight of countless individuals every year.

Born to a Jewish family in Upstate New York, Sam Newman-Plotnick holds a degree in labor relations from Cornell University and is thrilled to be collaborating with Worldchangers Organization. Despite his academic training and his intellectual background, Sam has come to value unlearning and deprogramming above the dominant paradigm of conventional scholarship. Most of all, Sam is grateful to the Worldchangers movement for providing him with opportunities to study sacred music, ancient practices, healing arts, and especially his own Abrahamic roots — via the mystical teachings of Sufism and Kabbalah. Considering his passion for supporting the movement and his background experience with grassroots fundraising initiatives, Sam was elected to serve as the grant writer for Worldchangers-related projects.

In 2004, he and Schachter-Shalomi co-founded the Sufi-Hasidic Inayati-Maimuni Order. After the passing of Schachter-Shalomi in 2014, Netanel became the Pir of the Inayati-Maimuni lineage. Netanel is also the president of Albion-Andalus Publications, author of many books and two films, co-founder of the Charis Foundation, and teaches in the Department of World Wisdom Traditions at Naropa University.
