“When Wind offered a class on manifesting, I thought, yes that's my next step. Yet in her presence, with her lead into the issues, I found that I knew more deeply and more precisely what needed to be completed. That was thrilling, you know. Two months after the class, after wobbling a bit...I did indeed begin to manifest and I keep manifesting with ease.” - Mary Vanderberg Green
“Through the year and a day initiation program, I feel like my birthright has been acknowledged, to be a truly empowered woman. Through this process I am finding myself.” - L.W. Oregon

“Oh my Goddess, this Initiation program with Wind has changed my life. I am the Maiden, Mother, Queen & Crone all dancing together as the empowered Divine FEMININE. I can’t ever again imagine my life without Ritual. I am awakened and I am roaring. Thank you Wind for supporting me through this Initiation awakening. You are a magnificent wise woman priestess” -T. C. , CA.
”I've known Wind for many years, and I have always been impressed by her open spirit and ability to follow her Divine Guidance. One of the best ways I know to determine a person's effectiveness is to watch how they affect those around them. Wind has a way of bringing the Light out of everyone she meets. Why? The reason is so simple -- she has found a way to expose the Light in herself. In that way she has become a radiant beacon for everyone around her.” - James Twyman, Author of “The Moses Code”
“While attending the Portland, Oregon Paradigm Shift conference, I had the pleasure of experiencing a true Quantum moment at Wind's Chakra tuning and drumming ritual. The conference had drawn regionally and nationally with over five hundred in attendance. Speakers included Quantum luminaries like Dr. Amit Goswami and Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, featured in the popular movie, "What the Bleep do we Know" While others spoke about the Quantum experience, Wind precipitated the actual event.She spoke about the Energy Body that has the ability to both transmit and receive information and then proceeded to demonstrate how that actually works in a drumming ritual. The vibrational energy from her drumming became a critical turning point for the conference and made lasting impressions on everyone I spoke to later. I was so touched by her transformational performance with the drums and the visualization that I included a drumming ceremony at our 12-hour Quantum Healing Seminar four months later. Wind Hughes is gifted healer, speaker and teacher and I highly recommend her workshops and presentations to anyone interested in optimizing their life experiences.” - Noah McKay M.D.
"Wind is a spiritual teacher who carries a multi-dimensional openness and love. Mother, companion, author, artist, therapist, shaman, she wears many masks and blends the different energies of these aspects of her life into a richly textured and mature humanity. She is a woman defining her own independent and unique path with potency and vulnerability. Her voice speaks with intelligence, compassion, and widsom to the spirit awakening in women and men everywhere." - Richard Moss, MD, Author of the “Mandala of Being”

“My child and I loved Wind’s Sacred Circle. I was searching for something we could do together that would help me find a way to bring Earth-based spirituality into my child’s life. He looked forward to each week and enjoyed the rhythm of the songs and activities. We found a great little community of other parents and kids in our Circle. It was a magical experience. Thank you for giving us this great experience together and thanks for being YOU!”

Passages of The Divine Feminine:
Maiden, Mother, Queen & Crone
“As I entered into this initiation, I began my own journey into an integrated
process of becoming complete. Each day that I call forth these four essential sides and directions of my feminine self, I become more aware that the tempering processes of my life experiences have purposefully served to strengthen my own sacred circle. Where a side of this circle might be weak or in need of repair, another more stronger side counteracts to reinforce and repair and strengthen. Through this initiation I have personally committed my life to the service of my own awakening and my own personal essence of the complete, strong feminine. I can say truthfully, that this initiation is working for me in the most astonishing ways. I have invited the parts of myself that I have abandoned and those parts are rejoicing at the call to return. We are together and we are strong and we are reacquainted.”

“My wife and I had reached challenges in our marriage. Having had full time jobs and demanding children, we found it difficult to find the bandwidth to communicate effectively and lacked knowledge to resolve some of the challenges that had emerged in our relationship. Usually I like to rely on recommendations from friends or family for mental and physical health care, but was compelled to reach out to Wind after reading one of her books. This turned out to be a wise decision. Wind recognized our busy schedules and was willing to make herself available when we could arrange childcare, then wasted no time and jumped right in to listen to our primary issues. Her demeanor and calm office space provided an environment that felt welcoming to discuss topics that were uncomfortable but needed to be addressed. Wind guided each of us through our topics with insightful care and actionable progress. She genuinely liked to help and had innate abilities in addition to her education that were evident on a number of levels. Overall our time with Wind was positive and valuable, leaving us with an open channel of communication after each visit. She provided the tools we needed to communicate and find resolve both during our appointments and to take with us back to our busy lives.”
“Wind Hughes has been the well of wisdom and clarity for me, individually and for my wife as a couple for 15 years, or more. When Wind moved from Taos, our sense of loss was soon replaced with a sense of relief that we were able to do our sessions via Skype. We miss her presence in Taos, but her help which we have relied on for years, continues with the added convenience of not having to leave your home.”
- PL, Taos, NM
"I have seen Wind for individual coaching on a couple occasions and have found the sessions to be highly instructive and insightful. The guidance that Wind offers is gentle and strong and helped me to touch in with my own inner voicing. We worked not only on practical things such as finances and social media connection for my business but also delved into the inner world of dream work and energetic patterning. The breadth of her skills is vast and her wisdom and insight intuitive and practical. She has helped me navigate several big life decisions successfully and I wouldn't hesitate to ask for her guidance again at the next one."
- JR, Freestone, CA
"My experience of Wind was magical from the beginning. I was drawn to Wind on a deeply intuitive level as I followed some synchronicities to receive her support and then felt a natural ease from the first time I met her. She emanates a deep presence and authenticity with her love and ‘sparkle’ as a human. She has a gentle strength in the way that she gets to the root of issues. I felt held by her energetically and simultaneously empowered by her to shift some patterns in my life that weren’t working for me. I love how she weaves in her background in therapy with her capacities in the Shamanic realms. I highly recommend Wind to anyone that is seeking support on any level. She is certainly a gift to our community."

“Spirit guided me to Wind and thank Goddess I listened. I have just completed my initiation as a Priestess Year and a Day, and I will forever be grateful. I had no idea when I began how this would change my life and what beauty would flow through my soul, like a warm river, bringing me ever deeper into why I am here on this earth. I am woman. I am the wise woman living in the trees, sitting by the fire. I am all and everything and I will never forget again. Thank you Wind for bringing this experience to me in such a heartfelt magical way. You were right. The circle is open but never ever broken!”
