about muse

bio

I wear my nickname Muse like a title; my job is to court inspiration. My name is Jen Aliz Lokajickova. Lokaj is an antiquated Slavic word meaning footman. I am an agent of transport; I assist in transformation and passage from one point to another. My bloodline is woven of engineers and farmers, intuitives and teachers, artists and practically-minded creators. I am the marriage of science and magic. I have my grandmother’s hands. I am not a healer. Medicine is a living force that cannot be owned; the phenomenon of healing cannot be controlled. I am an alchemist: I am a physician and an educator; I am a visionary, mystic, and medicine carrier. I am in service to the Holy, the evolution of human consciousness and evolutionary medicine.

Hands-on medicine is the first human medicine. Through touch, we can be in intimate relationship with the complex workings of our body and energy systems and investigate the root cause of any dis-ease. As a practitioner I am here to invite an experience of wellness that moves beyond the moment as a motivating force, contributing to daily choices and personal evolution. Through devotion and through practice, we can inhabit our body as an instrument through which we may access the nectar of our hearts.

I received the name Medicine of the Feminine in a moment of divine clarity when I was starting my private practice in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2009. At first I understood this name to mean that I work with “women’s health”. Indeed, since the year 2000 I had put all of my attention into studying the logistics of hormonal cycles, menstruation, and changing states of the vagina, vulva and uterus. As I have grown into my capacity as a physician and educator over the years since receiving this name, I have learned slowly and steadily that Medicine of the Feminine is a living school of alchemical information in which I am a student. The breadth of this study is much broader than the technical treatment of ovaries, uterus, or a vagina. At the same time, this body of information is profoundly available through encountering the inherent wisdom of ovarian, uterine, and vulvo-vaginal systems, as the yin force of life resides within yin organs. Medicine of the Feminine is the truth that our bodies and energy systems are an extension of nature and the force of the earth itself. Medicine of the Feminine is a way of being in relationship and a way of inhabitance that can instruct and guide us in all aspects of life, as individuals and as a species.
