Lee McCormick has always lived out loud. In the late ‘70s and ‘80s Lee hit the road as a singer songwriter. Talk about an education, he plunged into the lifestyle head first and headstrong. His tipping point came in 1997 when he (barely) woke up one day, realized he had an out-of-control drug problem and checked himself into rehab.
In rehab, he had a profound awakening and set out on a personal quest to find REAL truth and healing in his life. His inward journey took him to Native American and Mesoamerican shamans and healers who opened him up to a universal view of life and a new paradigm for addiction treatment.
In 1998, Lee founded The Ranch Recovery Center in Tennessee and later The Canyon Treatment Center in Malibu California and has been a creative force in the Mental Health and Recovery scene for over 15 years. He also founded Spirit Recovery Inc. to produce Healing and Recovery conferences and Spiritual Journeys around the world, he is a founder in Nashville’s Integrative Life Center and IOP/PHP Community Recovery program in Nashville, Tennessee and the author of The Spirit Recovery Meditation Journal: Meditations for Reclaiming Your Authenticity.
Lee is also the Executive Producer and has a leading role in the documentary “Dreaming Heaven,” the true story of the experiences of 18 people over 5 days at the Pyramids in Teotihuacan, Mexico. Lee has led many journeys to this place of power and has developed a far-reaching relationship with the mystery of the shamanic world that is present there. The documentary chronicles one of these experiential journeys in a deeply moving way.
Lee leads many journeys to Teotihuacan and other exotic and spiritual destinations. Click here to visit Lee’s Spirit Recovery Journeys.
Gini Gentry earned the title of Nagual Woman during 14-years with her mentor and teaching partner, don Miguel Ruiz. As the female spiritual leader of the Eagle Knight lineage, the Nagual Woman demonstrates a deepened knowledge of the Toltec experience. Gini’s particular gifts have been to synthesize her mastery of ancient Toltec wisdom with the universal truths of all sacred traditions, and to approach and interpret these truths from the female aspect of the Great Mystery.
Gini is the founder and steward of the Garden of the Goddess Retreat Center, near Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she also resides. She is a much-sought leader of spiritual journeys to sacred sites around the world, and conducts a lively schedule of workshops, lectures, talk-radio appearances and personal residency intensives, as well as teaching via social media, her website and her blog.
Her work as both mid-wife and content editor for don Miguel Ruiz’s best-selling The Four Agreements sparked Gini’s own literary journey. In 2010 she published her own book, Dreaming Down Heaven. Gini’s unique guidebook that particularly speaks to women through the story of a fictional young woman’s sacred quest. Based on Gini’s own evolution, the book within a book includes Gini’s 12-essential keystones to awakening.
