Your guide on this journey is Beatriz M. Orive. Bea was born and raised in Guatemala and educated in the United States. As a youth she spent many happy weekends and vacations visiting Mayan villages and learning their customs and ceremonies. She felt a deep soul connection to the ancient wisdom keepers. In later life, she would see this time as the original awakening of her Shamanic journey.
Beatriz is a multi-cultural and trilingual entrepreneur, with an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management. She had an extremely successful corporate career in Strategic Planning and Marketing, working at the executive level of Fortune 100 corporations and later in her own consulting company. During her international business career she honed her interests as a cultural anthropologist, studying people’s behaviors and cultural nuances in depth. This has given her the gift of deep insight into how people feel, think and interact.
Since the late 1980’s, Beatriz has been fully immersed in studying multiple Spiritual Disciplines as part of her personal quest to find that ‘something missing’. In 1995 she decided to delve deeper into Shamanism and Energy Medicine, eventually making it her own spiritual discipline. A few years later she settled into serious full time studies with a noted Shamanic Mentor/Teacher. With memories of her early experiences with the Maya, it was no surprise that this would be her calling. In 2003, Beatriz transitioned completely into the arena of Spiritual Teaching and Healing, founding the Mystery School, Awakening the Soul, where she continues to teach and lecture throughout the United States and Latin America.
