Our time to fulfill the Eagle & Condor Prophecy, the coming together of ancient wisdom across the Americas to usher in a new era of harmony and oneness, healing of the land and people, has come.

We call together a sacred congregation of the native Elders, who are stewards of ancient spiritual traditions, and modern healthcare professionals to foster a world that integrates, for the first time in thousands of years, profound spiritual elevation, harmonious technological applications, collective transformation, and connection.

Our call for sacred gathering is grounded in our humble understanding of the Hopi Prophecy. The prophecy envisions a harmonious world in which sacred spiritual traditions, grounded in Oneness, and material/technological advancements synergize so that each human being lives peacefully in direct connection with the Great Spirit and Mother Earth.



Nestled in the deep green forests by beautiful Lake Livingston, just north of Houston, TX, Golden Hill Retreat Center is a collaboration between Nelson Valena, MD, and Jason Anderson. This sacred space invites healers from all traditions to share their wisdom and help individuals discover their inner healer. Perched at the highest point in the county, on land once used for Native American ceremonies, Golden Hill radiates powerful restorative energy and spiritual significance.

Curated with love and energetically activated, the center fosters multigenerational gatherings, sharing of global sacred practices, and deep introspection. Surrounded by untouched natural beauty, Golden Hill offers a sanctuary for profound healing, connection, and elevated consciousness. Every aspect is designed to connect you with yourself, others, Mother Nature, and the Universe. Step onto this sacred land and experience the embrace of ancient wisdom and the tranquility of nature, guiding you towards unity and transformation.

Themes & Activities:

The themes of the gathering include holistic integration, spiritual awakening, and communal healing. Activities are designed to foster deep connection, elevate consciousness, and amplify the impact of each participant. Through heart-centered sharing circles, workshops on biological medicine, transformative breathwork, the integration of AI with spirituality, and sound therapy sessions, gatherers will explore and experience the profound potential of holistic practices. The day will culminate in a sacred cacao ceremony, creating a unified, spiritually connected community. The intention behind these themes and activities is to provide a sanctuary for profound healing, connection, and elevation, guiding participants towards a new paradigm of health and well-being where ancient wisdom and modern science unite.


Right now, you may feel disconnected from your deeper calling, overwhelmed by the limitations of conventional health practices, or feel wonderful in alignment and are seeking to accelerate and elevate your journey. After joining the council you will leave feeling profoundly connected, spiritually awakened, and empowered with new knowledge and practices to integrate into your life and ecosystem. You will have formed lasting bonds with like-spirited individuals, gained a holistic experience of health that incorporates both ancient wisdom and modern science, and will feel a deep sense of alignment with your true purpose. This transformative gathering will elevate not only your experience of life, but also those of your loved ones and others in your beautiful ecosystem.

You will walk away with

- a new, elevated community with which to co-create new projects and practices

- an AI assistant grounded in your values, knowledge and experience

- a comprehensive business course that will guide to you generating many times more your current revenue while being your authentic self.

The Call to Unity

From your hosts, Dr. Nelson Valena & Denise Damijo

The time is now for us to come together in unity to transform how we heal ourselves and each other. We can no longer operate in silos and expect change to happen. We must be the change, and together, we are more powerful. Each of us holds a piece of the puzzle, and without all the pieces, we will not be truly whole. This is a reflection of our inner world and our outer reality.

We invite practitioners from all backgrounds to share sacred space and foster communication across the healing continuum. Whether you are an allopathic physician, functional medicine practitioner, nurse, chiropractor, pharmacist, therapist, health coach, nutritionist, paramedic, naturopath, TCM practitioner, Ayurvedic healer, energy worker, shamanic practitioner, medical hypnotist, or plant medicine practitioner, this event is for you. Let's come together to understand each other's practices and explore how we can collaborate. This will be a wonderful opportunity to experience different practices first hand and meet new co-creators.

We look forward to the gathering of OUR TRIBE!

Join us now!

Our Offerings 9:00AM - 9:30PM

The Four Directions, Seasons, and Elements

In Native American culture, the four directions‚ÄĒEast, South, West, and North‚ÄĒalong with the four seasons, elements, and stages of life, hold profound spiritual significance. Each direction represents a different stage of life, a season, and an element, embodying unique energies and teachings. East signifies new beginnings and spring; South represents growth and summer; West symbolizes introspection and autumn; and North denotes wisdom and winter. These elements and stages guide our journey, offering balance, harmony, and connection to the natural world.

West - Autumn - Water: Introspection and Healing

  • Sound Therapy with Holly Celestine: Immerse yourself in vibrational healing to rebalance your energy field and align your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Reflect on the introspective and healing energy of autumn and the fluidity of water.
  • Biological Medicine with Dr. Richa Joy: Discover the integration of cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom to awaken your body's natural healing processes. Embrace the nurturing and healing energy of autumn and the flowing element of water.
  • Lunch and Dinner: Nourish your body with wholesome food while engaging in intentional, heart-centered networking. This communal setting reflects the nurturing and healing energy of autumn and the sustaining nature of water.

North - Winter - Earth: Wisdom and Completion

  • The Closing Ceremony
    • Cacao Ceremony with Mayra Leal: Join a sacred cacao ceremony led by Mayra Leal, designed to open your heart and deepen your spiritual connection. This profound ritual will serve as your induction into the council and the greater PTI ecosystem, co-creating a space of unity and spiritual awakening, grounding your experience like the solid Earth of the North.
    • Sacred Drum Circle and Fire Ceremony: Participate in a communal drum circle and fire ceremony, facilitated by Bonnie and your hosts, Nelson and Denise, celebrating the vibrant and communal spirit of new beginnings and the energetic element of fire. We will dance to sacred rhythm and song, connecting spirit, mind, body, and heart.
    • Closing Circle- the call for Unity, Gratitude & Release: Reflect on the day's transformative experiences in a supportive community setting led by Bonnie, Nelson, and Denise. Share your insights and discuss the future of integrating ancient wisdom with modern healthcare practices, envisioning a new paradigm of holistic wellness. This encapsulates the completion and wisdom of the North.

Join us in this Sacred Health Council to experience these transformative offerings designed to elevate our consciousness, deepen our connections, and amplify our impact on the world.

Meet Your Hosts:

Nelson Valena, MD


Hi, I'm Nelson, a PM&R brain injury specialist. My journey to calling together the Sacred Health Council is deeply personal and has been a testament to the transformative power of integrating ancient spiritual and modern medicine healing methods. Ten years ago, I experienced a life-altering stroke that set me on a path to understand the deeper aspects of healing.

Growing up in a medical family, I was constantly surrounded by the hustle and stress of the healthcare world. Both of my parents are physicians, and it seemed like my path was set: busy days, long hours, and a relentless drive to meet external expectations. I was always going, going, going, and it never felt like enough. Then, I had a stroke, and it was my wake-up call. It made me question everything and led me to explore energy medicine, shamanism, and other alternative therapies.

As a brain injury physician, I realized that the spiritual and energetic dimensions were missing from conventional medical practice. Over about ten years, I explored various alternative therapies, including energy medicine, shamanism, and energy psychology. I found that the things I learned in medical school and the traditional healthcare model often do not address the energetic and spiritual aspects of healing. I became very interested in how we, as healthcare providers, can integrate these aspects and change the way we view and provide healing.

About ten years ago, when I had the stroke, it made me think deeply about what my life was trying to tell me. I realized that many things in my life were not in alignment. This led me to explore what I am truly supposed to do. I understood that part of the reason for my stroke and my suffering was that I was not on the right path. I had to figure out, through trial and error, what the right path is. I realized that I was missing a lot of information because I wasn't really listening to my internal world, my intuition, and the senses and messages that my body and subconscious were trying to tell me.

It became apparent to me that this is a common problem in many people's journeys. They have never been taught or encouraged to listen to their inner world. Ancient traditions like shamanic practices, Chinese medicine, and Ayurveda have long understood the importance of the spiritual and energetic components of healing. These traditions emphasize that true healing encompasses the body, mind, and spirit.

I believe that I was pushed here at this time on Earth because it is my role as a healthcare professional to bridge the gap and introduce some of these alternative healing methods to more and more people. To me, this feels like a life mission, a soul mission that I am meant to fulfill in this lifetime.

Denise Damijo

Seer & Shaman

Hello, I’m Denise, Founder and CEO of The Shamanic Group, a student of Shamanism and a full-time student on the journey to get her PhD in Mind, Body, and Medicine, specializing in Psychophysiology and Contemplative End of Life Care. I am so excited and honored to co-create the Sacred Health Council because I too felt a personal calling to do this work. Ever since I was a child, I desired for people to be whole. Some people may have thought that to be strange because I was the one in 11 different homes in foster care from the time, I was 8 months old until I was emancipated at 18. But I was more concerned with others than myself. Because of my spiritual sensitivity, I was always seeing and feeling people’s pain and had a deep calling to do something about it. For many years, I felt like I was surrounded by the powerful but I was powerless and voiceless. 
Consistently overlooked and disregarded, I began my spiritual journey of looking inward. Asking questions to who I later realized was my spirit team. I had the honor since I was five years old of being shown things that helped me to understand the ways of this world and the people in it. Over the years my spiritual gifts developed and my connection to nature grew too.
When I came to realize that I was a Seer and Shaman, a lot of things in my life made sense but I still tried to run from the responsibility. Being called to such great responsibility when I was a hermit/recluse was not what I desired to do. Fortunately, being initiated by the Q`ero people, and having consistent dreams of confirmation, as well as; other spiritual leaders and Shamans in different communities confirmed to me that I was a Shaman. It was a turning point for me when one of my spiritual teachers told me that I should be honored and embrace this calling because I was also a bridge. Slowly, I began to accept and embrace my calling.
Shortly after I went through a near-death experience where I was on 5 quarts of oxygen 24/7, I developed pulmonary hypertension, went into respiratory and heart failure, and had only 1% blood flow to my right lung before having life-saving surgery. During this surgery, both of my lungs and heart were on a bypass machine for 11-12 hours and my heart stopped multiple times. Upon getting off the ventilator and waking up from that experience, I knew that without both my Shamanic spiritual beliefs and practices as well as, the allopathic health professionals who cared enough to investigate and help me regain my health, I would not be here. 
I specialize in spiritual bloodlines and giftings helping people to align with their divine and most fulfilling path. I am dedicated to helping bring more wellness and wholeness to people and the world. This is something that needs to be done together. We all are pieces to a bigger puzzle and if one piece is missing the puzzle would not be complete.

Steph Barrows, BSN, RN 


Holistic Nurse & Medicine Woman

Steph will be joining the musical team and offering her gift of healing songs to the closing ceremony. 

A Message from Steph:

"I have come to know a deep truth - a truth that is within me and woven into all creation. This Divine truth is the framework for all life experience and is the driving force of all evolution. Through our very human nature we seek out this truth, believing that it exists outside of ourselves. These truths have become lost behind our childhood traumas, programs and cultural conditioning, but remain within each of us. With many years of conscious study and healing work, through the use of entheogenic plant medicines and other holistic therapies, I have rediscovered this truth within myself. Through deep contemplative connection with nature and profound understanding and acceptance of our own human nature, we remember the truth that we all carry but have forgotten - that we are already healed!"

As a Holistic Nurse & Medicine Woman, Steph will guide you through the rediscovery of your own nature. With love, peace, joy and acceptance in our hearts, we can all know health and vitality.
