Carmen Monica Tyler, C.Ht. is an intuitive soul with a hereditary love for the craft.
She learned many skills from her family’s traditions and through formal training. She was initiated into the shamanic path by Timothy Cope, Midwest Shamanic Instructor, for the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. She continues to further her education into ecstatic trance practices (shamanic), spiritual and magickal knowledge by taking classes/workshops with teachers like Sandra Ingerman, Janet and Gavin Bone, Christopher Penczak, and Yvonne Smith, C.Ht. to name a few. Through her healing practice, she saw how meditation and trance states of consciousness have helped her clients have breakthroughs in their healing journeys which led her to become a Certified Hypnotherapist specializing in Regression Hypnotherapy.
Monica is a minister of the Circle of the Sacred Earth Church; it is the first recognized church that fosters animism within the United States. She facilitates shamanic journeying circles in the Reading, PA area. She is an adamant believer in the path of direct revelation because it empowers individuals to rediscover their true selves and enables them to find the answers and healing they’ve been searching for, so they can live a full, happy balanced life.
In addition, she has attained her 3rd Degree through the former Temple of Tir na nÓg in the state of Illinois becoming a High Priestess. She currently is an honored member of the Temple of Witchcraft and continues her education through their Mystery School where she has attained her 4th Degree and wishes to continue on to her 5th Degree. She continues to expand her knowledge and exploration of spiritual and magickal topics by attending classes and workshops.
In 2015, Monica founded The Singing Blue Lotus Temple in Colorado Springs, CO. The temple engages and honors the Earth, deities, helping spirits, sanctified dead and ancestors. Its mission is to educate and build a community of those who seek to walk the path of an ethical shamanic witch. This is a teaching temple, where you will learn about the craft, core shamanic practices and most of all about yourself and the world around you. The Temple relocated to Reading, PA in 2020 where it continues to serve the local pagan community. To see the upcoming events please visit the Temple Events page.
Monica’s goal is to guide individuals to realize and understand that they are energetic beings having a physical experience, that they are architects of their own reality and the answers they seek, are already within them and they can explore them via educational and spiritual experiences.
