It is with great sadness that we inform you that Alicia Luengas Gates, extraordinary shamanic teacher and healer, and spiritual mentor to so many of us, transitioned peacefully on July 29 in southern California where she lived for many years.
Gerardo Roemer, FSS faculty member and teaching colleague, informed us that before her passage Alicia asked that we do not do shamanic work for her at this time, beyond offering love and good wishes.
