Mahkwuhoo: An Indigenous Guided Meditation - LUCENTREE


A prayer is just a good thought: put a beautiful image in your mind, something that you love, close your eyes, and hold onto that feeling until it changes you. That's how the old ones used prayer.

- Ethel Morgan,

There's a space and time in our minds, in our bodies, and in our spirit, that connects everything together. When we learn to slow ourselves down through meditation, we can actually speed up our collective destinies.

What is Mahkwuhoo (Guided Meditation)?

Mahkwuhoo (a literal Paiute translation “it’s already done”) is a one-of-a-kind, Great Basin-esque Indigenous philosophy; that uses the inner-voice, to navigate inner light. This is a tribal perspective, of practical meditation—no right-way or wrong-way—simple, but effective. The objective of Mahkwuhoo is to re-connect the People, back to each other, and to the Earth.


After nearly two decades of dreaming, fasting, dancing, and praying; meditation has been the missing ingredient to my own spiritual soup. I created the Mahkwuhoo practice several years ago out of necessity, because I needed a ritual that would help me organize (and prioritize) prayers and my commitments. I tried lots of other meditations (and methods) but nothing that I partook in was ever directly reflective of my own beliefs or culture. After a couple of years, with lots of prayer, dreams, and understanding, I was able to formalize something that had all the components that I wanted; a practice that made me feel grounded to the land, to my Ancestors, and to my purpose. Mahkwuhoo, is an original Tribal Earth-Based philosophy that represents the customary style of praying that I received through my family teachings. To simplify this even further, Mahkwuhoo is meant to generate energy: use what’s necessary, give the rest away, and submit to the moment. Mahkwuhoo, is perfect for people who desire a proactive personal ceremony, in casual free flowing environments: without ethereal jargon or rigid protocols.
