We live in uncertain, chaotic, challenging times.
Stress, anxiety, and overwhelm just seem to be the order of the day.
And yet, we crave peace and deep connection… with ourselves, with others, with the world in general. When stressed and overwhelmed, we long for something to help us relax, calm down, and re-connect with our own inner peace and guidance.
- you had an extraordinarily simple tool that worked on a moment’s notice to shift you out of overwhelm and into peace?
- you could do it without anyone even being aware that you were doing it?
- this skill could truly change the way you view yourself, others, and the world at large – for the better?
Would you use it?
My guess is you would… for a few days. And then, it would fade away. You would forget about it and stop using it.
Why? Because, we live in a culture where simple is not valued. Where, unless something comes at the expense of blood, sweat, and tears, it is overlooked, abandoned, forgotten.
This is unfortunate because so much of the medicine we need (in order to enjoy greater peace and perspective) is truly simple… as in watching a sunset, giving or receiving a hug, turning off all electronics and having a candle-lit dinner, spending time in nature versus in a theme park…
While these simple-medicine-events do occur every now and then, in general, we live busy, hectic lives barely keeping up with the day-to-day demands on our time. We don’t have the ability to do the ‘simple’ things on a moment to moment basis.
But, what if we did? What if we had a skill that allowed us to bring the simple medicine of nature, of peace, more readily into our daily lives?
Enter the Medicine of Owl.
The Medicine of Owl is medicine of peace, of wide-open perspective, of connection to body and environment, of deep nourishment. Owl medicine guides us and holds us through the stressful, overwhelming aspects of our external lives and internal worlds… helping us to become wiser, kinder, stronger, and more fierce while also holding more compassion for ourselves and others.
We can access this ‘simple’ medicine at any time, in any place, through a skill called Owl Eyes, or wide-angle vision.
When we are in Owl Eyes, we can quickly access a deep sense of calm and a broader, kinder perspective on ourselves and on whatever may be distressing us in the moment.
Owl Eyes works. But, there’s the problem:
Owl Eyes works. It swiftly, gently shifts our internal experience. However, the problem is that is so very simple that everyone (yes, everyone, even myself initially) forgets to use it.
Not only that, even after having had a profound experience of Owl Medicine, I see people discount it, discard it, not use it the next time they are in a similar situation.
Why? Again, because it is so simple. You don’t have to work hard to experience the benefits. Therefore, it has no ‘real’ value and it is tossed aside. It is forgotten. This is a problem.
I’m here to correct this problem.
I’m Larisa Noonan. Hello 🙂
I’ve spent the past two decades seeking out self-care techniques and mindfulness practices that work. Since being introduced to the Medicine of Owl, it is to her that I return time and time again.
Why you may want to listen to me:
- I know what it means to be in extreme pain. I’ve had headaches/migraines for, basically, always. I can’t remember ever being headache free… although, this is changing. Yay!
- I’m a highly sensitive person which means I get easily overwhelmed, stressed, and disconnected from my body and myself.
- I’ve spent the past 20 years helping clients who are overwhelmed by pain (physical and emotional) and unresolved trauma return to peace and wholeness.
Thanks to all that, I have learned and played with nearly every self-care and mindfulness-based system out there. Owl Medicine works for me every day. It’s a practice that deepens my relationship with myself, with others, and with the world around me. I am more me when I am wearing my Owl Eyes.
Now, back to the Medicine of Owl…
…and why I love it so much that I created an entire course centered around Owl Eyes. It:
- is simple (we’ve already spoken about this :));
- can be done anywhere;
- doesn’t require anything other than you;
- is stealthy. No-one will even know you are doing it. But you, you will know and you will experience the benefits!
- deep sense of calm;
- a clear, relaxed mind;
- increased capacity to handle stressful situations and stressful people;
- enhanced decision making abilities;
- improved driving skills (yes, really!);
- ability to look at trees, plants, other people, while walking, without tripping, all at the same time;
- over time, an enhanced sense of belonging, of feeling at home both in yourself and in the world around you.
This course might just be the key to world peace.
It's not just a relaxation technique, it actually re-wires your thinking. After engaging Owl Eyes for even a few minutes, I feel differently about myself and the world. Thinking about ongoing issues in my life stops overwhelming me, and I intuitively know that all will be okay. It's having a big-picture perspective present while addressing the details of life.
From personal experience I recommend these lessons as a way to let go of trauma and literally change your perspective on life.
So, what is the Medicine of Owl e-course?
The Medicine of Owl e-course is a 30-day email-based course containing 13 Owl Eyes applications to help you relax, calm down, and gain perspective.
This course is for you if you:
- lead a busy, stressful live and crave calmness, clarity, and connection
- get stuck in your head–in your spinning mind–disconnected from your body
- see the value of being more aware of your surroundings (when walking, driving, etc)
- learn best through smaller chunks of information delivered over time.
- are willing to invest 5-30 minutes a day for one month in order to learn a new way of interacting both with yourself and the world around you
- check your email regularly – at least two-three times a week
It is also for you if you:
- are curious about my obsession with Owl and her medicine and want to learn more
- have taken the Dissolving Overwhelm with Owl free course and want to go deeper
- have experienced the Medicine of Owl for yourself but forget to use Owl Eyes regularly
Finally, this course is for you if you are highly sensitive and you:
- want to stop feeling so overwhelmed all the time.
- tend to get drawn into other people’s conflicts, stories, feelings, etc and want to stay more present in yourself.
- tend to put others first and want to begin putting your own needs first in a way that is gentle, compassionate and that feels natural and kind.
This is not a learn it and leave it technique. By the end of the course, you will be intimately familiar with the technique AND you will be effortlessly incorporating it into your daily life. It will become part of who you are, not just something you do.

Scary! Yes, I know, trying something new, especially something that has the potential to change your life in some way is scary. Exciting? Yes. Scary? Also yes.
The great thing about Owl Eyes is that it is gentle. It helps you slowly shift the way your view your life, the people in your life, and even how you view yourself. Plus, the course is designed so that there is plenty of time to practice and integrate each new application.

Larisa - she teaches beautifully. With heart, honesty and a ton of compassion. If you have any pain, discomfort, or other issues then Larisa can help guide you so that you leave with a very usable, portable and totally awesome tool. This tool is called Owl Eyes. But she has a whole lot more in her bag if you need it!
I cried for a good five minutes during our last session. My face wet with tears. And whilst my sobs were deep - from the belly kind of deep, I felt totally safe, warm, and calm in my body - like I have never ever felt before. It's difficult to put these things into word. Really difficult.
So do I recommend Larisa as being 'real', human, and highly skilled? Yes, dammit, I do. And I say this as someone who has done a little of everything. A truck load of therapy, some ecstatic dance, you name it and I’ve dipped my little toe into the water to help me interact more kindly with my pain and my past traumas to lessen their hold over my life.
So...read her book, take her course. Soak it up. Practise it when you can, and if at all possible, engage with Larisa. She'll remind you of what you already sensed or know but needed help to remember - that our bodies are impressive balls of energy, capable of healing and so much, much more.
I have a feeling that the more I practise Owl Eyes the more I will experience calm, grounded ease in my life.
Sounds good don't it? Yep. Well...that's cos it damn well is.
Immediately upon registration, you will receive a welcome email including the Keys to Success pdf and the Welcome + Guided Journey to Owl audio mp3. Lesson 1 will arrive the following day.
I want to see more peace and love in the world. I believe the Medicine of Owl is a (very potent) pathway to increasing love and peace within ourselves and in the world. Therefore, I created this course to help you remember to use Owl Eyes, to help you weave the Medicine of Owl into all aspects of your life.
I use Owl Eyes every day and I’m a happier, kinder person thanks to them. I know the same will be true for you. <3
Hi Larisa! Just wanted to let you know I am enjoying these lessons! I started using wide angle vision many years ago while hiking so I could see the trail and the scenery at the same time -- no tripping, no walking for miles looking only at the dirt. Your lessons have reminded me to use that technique in more situations and to be more aware of the corresponding relaxation in my body and spirit. Thanks! 🙂
