Russell Feingold is a shaman, sound healer and author who has dedicated the past 25 years to the pursuit, study and practice of the healing arts. Drawn to the timeless wisdom of ancient cultures, he surrendered his mainstream Western life to follow the call of his heart and soul to walk the ordained path of the medicine man. Embracing the indigenous wisdom of India, Nepal, Peru and the North American Original Peoples “Red Road”, Russell later received the rare and humbling honor of serving as the Principal of the Tribal Shamanic Council of the Choctaw Musgokee Yamassee Nation.
His pursuit of truth and natural healing led him into the potent and magical world of Peruvian Shamanism, where he was initiated into the life-long study of these sacred ways by internationally acclaimed shamanic teacher Don Oscar Miro-Quesada Solevo — respected Kamasqa Curandero and Altomisayoq adept. Then, under the guidance of Maestro Curandero Ricardo Amaringo, a revered ceremonialist and Shipibo shaman, Russell completed a rigorous and demanding year-long apprenticeship in the Shipibo lineage of Amazonian plant medicine at Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual (co-founded by Dr. Joe Tafur, author of “The Fellowship of the River” and visionary artist Cvita Mamic).
Russell’s work seeks to honor the integrity of these indigenous cultures and traditions while serving as a bridge to make them accessible to those who are called, without diluting the inherent potency of these sacred medicines and practices. There is no room for spiritual-bypassing or light-chasing as he is known for his remarkable ability to “read the field” and, like a lightning bolt of truth, identify the blocks to health, wellbeing and our soul’s evolution. Cutting through the web of confusion, he helps his clients and students embrace their pain, grief and trauma, releasing it into the alchemical fire of transformation, so that healing and wholeness can be restored on all levels: mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and relationally. As Arielle Ford, Founder of the Ford Group, author of international bestseller, “The Soulmate Secret,” and a former client puts it, “Russell Feingold is an extraordinary healer with a remarkable ability to both correctly diagnose and heal energy blocks.”
Recognized for bringing some of the most powerful ceremonial and transformational work to the northern hemisphere, Russell has helped thousands of people, including respected leaders Debbie Ford, Marcelene Dyer, Fran Drescher, and Andrew Harvey to break down the story of their lives and unravel the multi-dimensional tension patterns that obscure the authentic masterpiece within. For the past 7 years, he’s been a core staff member on David Wolfe Adventures facilitating groups to rejuvenate and re-connect with their souls, passions, nature and vibrant health on pilgrimages to Hawaii and Peru. LA Weekly noted his impeccable dedication to bringing forth deep healing by awarding his private coaching practice “Best of LA” in 2011. And as a professional speaker, Russell is known for electrifying audiences, presenting alongside Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Caroline Myss, Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Andrew Harvey and T. Harv Eker at conferences, festivals and conscious living events. He is also the author of “Heart Wisdom: Your Transformational Guide to Joyful Living and Loving” published by Findhorn Press.
More important than all his credentials, however, is the fact that Russell is a loving human being who deeply cares about people and Pachamama — the Earth — and all her creatures. He is a master at nurturing community using the gifts of humor, insight, compassion, and diligently creating a safe and sacred space so that hearts, bodies, minds and souls can be healed to further the evolution of our earth-bound tribe towards peace, unity and wellbeing.
What is Heart Wisdom?
Heart Wisdom is our authentic truth and the process of unveiling it is the alchemy of universal intelligence penetrating the heart of the human experience.
Heart Wisdom is the spiritual nourishmentthat fuels the evolution of mind, body and soul. Yet many of us operate quite functionally without it. We cruise along changing lanes and eventually we get from point A to point B. We fill our tanks with water, food, air and sleep, which seems to give us all the fuel we need to get by on this journey that we call life. What many of us don’t realize is that we also need a different kind of fuel, a high-grade premium version that we can only access through a certain kind of pump.
Without the fuel of Heart Wisdom, life can feel like an awful lot of work.
Instead of tapping into the well of awareness that resides within us, we have to analyze everything, figure it all out in our heads; we must generate enough energy to do what is required of us, and we often feel as if we have to do it all alone.
Without a steady connection to our own Heart Wisdom, we get tired and stressed as we struggle to survive. We suffer, spiritually and mentally, and as a result, we are unable to make clear choices that truly serve us, or fully access our purpose. More often than not, we end up in relationships that are unfulfilling and unhappy.
Why is this?
Quite simply, it’s because the wisdom that comes through your heart centers and focuses your energy, your body and your mind towards dynamic functioning and fulfillment by guiding you, not into being what you think, or wish you were, but towards what you truly are.
When you are connected to your heart, you feel, think and respond differently to the experiences that unfold in your life.
There are still challenges to overcome and issues to work through, but the wisdom of the heart provides you with profound and endless resources to engage and experience life with grace.
Awaken to the wisdom of your heart and you’re the experience of your life will be great, no matter what is unfolding on a day to day basis. When we are awakened to Heart Wisdom, our lives go from struggle to flow.
Some people call it the innate wisdom of the universe, the divine instruction that comes from the source: God, the Goddess, Allah, Buddha, the Great Spirit, or the Ancient ones. The name you call it is irrelevant, what matters is that you recognize that there is intelligence that exists, and that with its help we harmonize with the world, flow fast on premium fuel and cruise along in the fast lane.
Awakening to our heart’s wisdom and taking action based on its intelligence activates the occurrence of synchronicity in our lives. Suddenly, as you become clear – the Universe begins conspiring to support you and you discover all your needs are always met!
Most of us are stuck in the belief that our personal intelligence is greater, that the human mind is the best tool for figuring out the wisest choice.
The mind is a super computer, ideal for analyzing data, not so great at ascertaining what will serve most on a soul level.
Awaken to your heart and discover a deeper connection, the opening of a channel, that provides you with access to the deep wisdom that flows to us all day, every day, if only we are available to listen and receive it. These messages cannot be heard through our ears; in order to understand that words of wisdom that are coming to us, we must listen in a different way; with a clear and open heart.
Only the heart can hear what will bring us true fulfillment, peace and true power.
