Your Sanctuary for Cultivating Daily Rituals for Thriving with a planet in transition

About Ixchel

Hello – Hola! I’m Ixchel Lunar (ee-shell loo-nahr)

✨Decolonial Time Witch✨ founder of Initiated Leaders Fellowship, an Indigenous WebDeva (25+ years) and author of Buzzing Blooms for Bees. Weaving Anti-Racist Feminist business (this is NOT white woman feminism) and initiated leadership strategies alongside neuroscience to help Edgewalkers decolonize and reclaim your time, skip the crash and liberate your Flow…

Daily Rituals for Thriving on a Transitioning Planet.

*Our JEDIs are working at the intersection of Justice, Emergence, Decolonizing, and Interconnection in the post-patriarchial global network of planet-centered businesses, politics, and NGOs/non-profits.

What is Rainbow Living?

We are utilizing neuroscience and ancient dharmic practices to guide culturemaking leaders, who may be overwhelmed, compassion fatigued and facing burnout by helping you cultivate your daily FLOW rituals, so you can shine like the SUPERNOVA you really are, and change the world while you’re at it.

TOGETHER WE CAN STITCH A NEW GARMENT BY…

Dreaming our way out of systems of brutal productivity emblematic of late-stage capitalism, white supremacist colonialism, big pharma and big ag (that cuts us off from the medicine and food given to us by Earth), and the burnout, dis-ease, addiction, brain fog, autoimmune issues and general unmitigated stress that these uninitiated systems create.

WHAT WE'RE FACING TODAY...

If your health is overburdened by toxic stress. If your nervous system is on tilt. If you find yourself longing to create a greater impact your soul incarnated to make but find yourself saying things like “If only I had more time. If only I had more resources. If only I felt more focused.” 

I want you to know one thing…

IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.

There are social systems and structures in place that are designed to keep you exactly where you are, precisely to prevent you from implementing the culture making you came to create.

AND...

We will learn how to work under, around and through these systems so that we can come out on the other side initiated, focused, resilient, and liberated to Dream in the Wild.

We will not go back...

"We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate and lack. We should not long to return, my friends. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature."

— Sonya Renée Taylor

About Ixchel

My first twenty years I learned it wasn’t safe to be seen as I fought to survive in a world where I felt I wasn’t invited and didn’t belong.

“Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, Grow, Grow.” 
— The Talmud

Yet through conscious daily practice in the company of many angels in differing forms over the last thirty-five years I discovered strength in surrounding myself with the community of others (including people, plants and pollinators) that helped me feel a sense of belonging — re-membering how to feel safe in my skin and embedded in the natural world while being ok with the discomfort of dismantling systems on the daily.

I know all too well what it means to fly too close to the sun and burn out because of it.

I come to our work together from the intersection of on-the-ground organizing and political work; from deep training in ancestral spiritual practices and plant medicine; and from 35+ years of consciousness exploration.

“Wake up! If you are sleeping, wake up!” 
— Don Alejando Wakatel Utiw
(Wandering Wolf),
Grand Elder of the Mayan Nations

For nearly 3 decades I’ve committed myself to social justice work, organizing for communities of culture and serving in local politics.

  • I was the first Latine Vice-Mayor of my city, I learned to become comfortable being a first and only in the room, taking the opportunity to hold the door for more BIPOC leaders to enter.
  • With decades of tech experience as a web deva and political activist and organizer, I co-founded the Tech and Telecomm Committee for my city.
  • Between 2009-2013 I was appointed to serve on two San Francisco Bay Area government boards where I enacted progressive social and environmental policy for approximately 11 million people, including shifting stigma to sway my colleagues on the Board of Directors to fund the suicide net for the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • In 2011-12, I even ran for congress.

I know what happens when we go go go and I know what’s possible when we take 15 minutes a day (or less!) to breathe, pause and reflect.

Here’s what all of this means for you:

I have developed a keen sense of centering justice, emergence, decolonizing, interconnectedness. I view the world, our bodies and our Work as emergent as we create new, just ways of thriving. I can help you dance with the cycles and flow in your life, helping you deepen your leadership capacities from this space of integration and interconnectedness too.

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” 
— Alice Walker quoting June Jordan

A little more about me…

  • I was raised and bore children on the the traditional, unceded and stolen lands of the Coast and Central Valley Miwok (colonized as Petaluma, CA) and Nisenan (colonized as Sacramento and Fair Oaks, CA), past, present and future. I also write, work and live in the highland jungle, the traditional, unceded and stolen lands of the Matagalpa, past present and future, in what is known as Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
  • I also hold a Masters degree in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness from the California Institute of Integral Studies (with a focus on Integral Ecology) and a B.A. in Gender + Women Studies from Mills College, and a Permaculture Design Certificate. PLUS, I am Fellow of the Leadership Institute for Just and Resilient Communities.
  • I’m a writer, beekeeper 🐝 and permaculturalist, I love growing herbs and plant dyes for the bees and butterflies 🦋 (I wrote the book on it), and making alchemical 🔥 herbal medicines.
  • I like to spin yarn and avidly collect indigenous textiles. I ran an ethical pashmina business in Nepal.
  • My Spanish is terrible, and French is a lingering memory, due to my parents’ assimilations. And I speak several coding languages and Astrology and I’m learning my Indigenous ancestors' languages, K’iche Mayan and Runasimi (Quechua).
  • At a mighty 4’10”, I’m a light-skinned, Mestize Indigiqueer (Mayan, French-Canadian and Scottish), vision-impaired and neuro-distinct woman. As a victor of significant childhood trauma, (ACE-Q score is 10+6), my life’s work is infused with JEDI activism (Justice-centering, Emergence, Decolonizing, Interconnecting).

All that to say…

I weave together Anti-Racist Feminist business practices (this is NOT white woman feminism), initiated leadership strategies, and the best of neuroscience together to help Edgewalkers like you decolonize and reclaim your time, skip the burnout and liberate your Flow.

This dyadic process isn’t prescriptive. You’re not learning what worked for me. Cultivate your rituals around how Flow works for you, your cycles, your biology while (un)learning the colonial systems that disrupt your natural states of being. Why? Because Biology scales (h/t Steven Kotler).

And when your biology scales… so does your impact.
