We had the good fortune of connecting with Tracy Lawson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tracy, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Once I had begun my shamanic training, I realized that I no longer wanted to be a “shaman in the closet”, instead I wanted to help people on a larger scale. I loved the work I was doing, helping others shed their past and their programming by bringing them into balance energetically. There have been different manifestations of my business, and there will continue to be. Ultimately I am here to help raise the vibration of the planet.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
For years I was in the liquor business which was a hell of a lot of fun! Then in my late 30’s, there was a shift, an awakening, and the opening to clear and balance myself. Not only did I want to raise my own vibration, I wanted to help others do the same. Self work is brutal, I’ll be the first to tell you, BUT…it is worth doing beyond measure. I left the liquor world and opened up Maha Soul. It is a soulful yoga studio, a healing center and has a store full of fun, funky retail. Even though Covid has effected the brick and mortar version of the studio, I look forward to continuing an online presence to offer brightness and balance, which the world is very much in need of right now.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
For friends and family visiting Colorado, I would absolutely treat them to time in nature. We would head to Glenwood Springs for a soak in the hot springs and then some unwinding at Yampah Caves and some nurturing treatments. The next day we could get up early and take the Jeep up towards Carbondale, have breakfast then make our way up the trail to Crystal, Colorado (with a mandatory picture in front of the Crystal Mill). Then spend some time hiking around and soaking up sunshine in the magic of the Aspen grove. Make our way down the trail later that evening for dinner in Aspen. The next day, head over to Palisade to check out the orchards, purchase some peaches, and then rent a limo for the rest of the day so we can tour the Western Slope wineries while someone else drives! Perfect couple of days out of the city!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
So many delightful souls I have been honored to work with along this life path. Julie, Dan, Ginger and Dale…thank you for your guidance and clarity along the path of the Medicine Wheel. To all of my teachers and classmates in the ancient wisdom of yoga, gratitude is flowing. To my husband, my daughter, my family and friends…love your guts!
