Her curiosity to learn more about her Mapuche roots and connection to the land brought her to the exploration of the sacred.

She has worked with Maya elders from Guatemala, studied at Las Piramides Del Ka-- a metaphysics training that dives deep into the consciousness of dreams and meditation, has been working with rebirthing (a breathing modality) since the age of 8 with further training in her late teens, and received her yoga certification from Laughing Lotus in 2013.

In 2016, Florencia and her brother started a distribution company known as Cacao Lab to bridge the gap between the modern culture and the indigenous communities.

She has helped and inspired thousands of women to radically claim themselves and lead more passionate and conscious lives and it brings her great joy!

Prior to that she directed documentaries, a web show, and a feature film, wrote plays and created art along the same topics of what it means to be modern woman and what spiritual awakening feels like,  which have been viewed by millions of people and featured in international press.

Her first spiritual mentorship began when she met her first teacher at age 12 whom she studied with annually until his passing in 2015.  She began studying yoga and meditation at age 19 when she lived and studied with monastics abroad. Through her studies at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she earned a BFA she learned how to use theatre, embodiment work, breath work, movement, and storytelling for healing and personal transformation. She went on to study shamanic journey practice, sacred intimacy work, Earth based spiritual pratice, Reiki, and plant medicine ceremonial traditions with many teachers around the world. Her 15 years of meditation practice and moon ritual is what inspired her to create Moon Club as a place to gather for deep sharing and deep practice relating to the internal spiritual journey.

Her current studies include Vajrayana Tantric Buddhist practices with the renowned teacher and author, Lama Tsultrim Allione, and Kashmiri Shaivist Tantra practice with author and teacher, Sally Kempton, and alternative mental healthcare training.

She is working on her first book with the publisher Sounds True, out in early 2020 and will be leading retreats in 2019 at 1440 Multiversity, Kripalu Center, and Maha Rose Mexico and enjoying life between NYC and LA!

Rank #15: 61: Social Media Energy Hygiene — 5 Practices That Work

Podcast cover
Read more

Energetic transmissions through social media are real. It’s natural that scrolling on Instagram makes you feel all sorts of feelings. You may be picking up on the energy of someone you’re following. Or maybe you have experienced getting aware of emotions within yourself that previously went unacknowledged. It’s especially true when the world or communities around you are going through major social, political and economic events.

When it comes to energy exchange, social media is no different from the physical realm. Seeing a single Instagram post might leave you feeling moved and inspired, or completely wrecked.

I discovered the concept of “Energy Hygiene” through a podcast on shamanism years ago, while taking my daily walk through Central Park to my then full-time job. 

Energy hygiene is all about taking charge of your energy and having the tools keep your energetic field (including conscious and subconscious feelings and emotions) clear and centered.

In this episode, I share the 5 tools and practices that have personally helped me keep my energy protected and clear, no matter how noisy and charged my social media feed gets.

I’m sharing these with you with the intention of supporting you in using social media as a tool to help you connect and grow. This is the foundation of using social media as a manifestation tool.
