The RootsWell Project, 2020
The RootSwell Project is the grounding of Amaya Tala's community work into the connection of all aspects of community restoration and the core roots of humanity. This project featured the strengths of people in marginal living and other community members from various backgrounds. Everyone united to support one another especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Love Currency Embassy is anywhere where love resides. Our sacred circle ceremony aims to restore our inner and collective wellness so we can shine our light to the world together in the highest frequency of Love. This ceremony is rooted in indigenous wisdom that carry the highest wisdom of Mother Earth and the Universe. In this ceremony, people walk through a process called the Indigenous Ceremonial Change Process (ICCP) where people cross the bridge from a destructive way of thinking, being, and living to a life-affirming way of life. Translated by indigenous wisdom keeper, Patricia Anne Davis, from her Choctaw-Navajo/Chahta-Dineh tribe indigenous principles, the ICCP is all-inclusive and cross-cultural that can be applied to any domain, based on the eternal truth that we are all indigenous to this planet.
Through synchronistic events, Grandmother Patricia connected with her apprentice, Amaya Tala, who is now co-facilitating this ceremony with her. Amaya Tala is an indigenous-based and sustainability life coach & nurturer, hailing from the islands of the Philippines. She is on a journey to reconnect with her roots and seek healing from the colonization of her mother land. Together, they are launching the wave of love healing to all four directions so people can experience the true beauty and nature of a loving reality.

The Kapwa Workshop, 2018
The very first widely mobilized community project that Amaya Tala organized. Funded by The Pollination Project, the Kapwa Workshop weaved Filipino indigenous culture in which the core value is Kapwa, the shared inner self, into the present and future to help empower the youth in their lives by knowing their roots and how it relates to who they are.
