Let me tell you a little bit about myself...

My name is Dr. Oscar C. Pérez. Years ago, while tending a Sacred Fire with my teacher, mentor, and elder I had a vision. It was at a pivotal moment in my life when everything that I had worked hard to build was falling apart in the most spectacular way.  
You know those moments: when you realize that in order to become who you were born to be, you have to let everything you've built in your life go. Because you weren't being true to you...and, finally, the truth was staring you in the face. 
You know those moments: when you realize that, against all odds, you've created the illusion of success according to others, and lost the crucial essence of who you are in the process...

WHEN YOU MAKE YOURSELF SMALL,
THE WORLD IS HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE YOU

It sends you small-minded people that are (consciously or unconsciously) determined to keep you small. To undermine your gifts, your talents, your possibilities for growth.
Few of us ever realize this. Instead, we keep repeating the unconscious choices, beliefs, and behaviors that first taught us to make ourselves small.
Over time, this eats away at our self-respect, self-love, and self-determination. Over time, this transforms our immense potential into a type of silent, isolated, alone, self-destructiveness.

REGARDLESS OF YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS...

Standing in front of that ceremonial fire I realized that
I was born into this world to do something bigger. To step into the power and medicine of my ancestors. To help others to heal the root causes of their fear, anxiety, addictions, existential terror...
...my early successes in life came out of overcoming immense struggle. From wrestling with personal and generational trauma alone, to wrestling with the curse of addiction and nearly losing my life and freedom in the process...to becoming the first person in my family to graduate college and get a full fellowship to an Ivy-League PhD...but none of these things mattered.
That Sacred Fire brought me back to who I came here to be. 

"He had such compassion and empathy for the emotional hell I was experiencing, and I immediately knew that I had contacted the right person to guide me through this tumultuous period of my life. It is obvious that Oscar has been called to do this much needed work, and I am personally forever grateful that he chose to heed that call."

I started studying Shamanism and ancestral forms of healing when I was just a boy. As far back as I can remember, I had a passion for helping others through their times of emotional torment.
In my early twenties, this literally saved my life. 
But the shackles of generational wounding still held tight and bound me to the fear of being persecuted for doing my work in the world, so I tried to accommodate social expectations while somehow integrating my calling.
The saying goes: you can't serve two masters. And you can't.

Tending the Fires was born out of a calling to help people like you transform the deep unconscious beliefs and behaviors that have kept you from being who you truly came here to be.
Trust me, I know from experience how gut-wrenchingly painful that can be. How it leads to self-doubt, self-loathing, self-destruction. For years, I have helped countless individuals pull themselves out of these destructive cycles.
AND TRANSFORM THEM ONCE AND FOR ALL.
Through years of doing this work with people in substance dependence recovery I was given the name "The Recovery Shaman." Because I help people heal the wounds of addiction and self-destruction at their root, by honoring all of their spiritual and ancestral connections. This is a process we call "Soul Recovery."

WHAT WE ARE RECOVERING FROM IS MUCH DEEPER THAN THE STRUGGLES IT CAUSES

GENERATIONS OF UNPROCESSED TRAUMA
GENERATIONS OF SILENCED SUFFERING
GENERATIONS OF UNTENDED GRIEF
GENERATIONS OF ISOLATION

WHAT WE ARE RECOVERING IS

PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS
THRIVING PASSIONATE RELATIONSHIPS
COMPELLING LIFE PURPOSE
SELF-LOVE & RESPECT

THIS WORK IS MUCH BIGGER THAN ME.
It is something that is guided by generations of healers that walk behind me and beside me. By those that have and continue to support me in doing this work to serve others, but I AM NOT THE HEALER.
I am a guide. 
I am the one that shows you where to go and what to do to discover abilities you never knew you had. Abilities you never thought were possible. So that YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF.
START THE HEALER'S JOURNEY NOW. YOU ARE NECESSARY.
