Imagine waking up every morning without feeling numb, anxious, or overwhelmed...

Indigenous Knowledge can help you get there— let me show you how.

"It's not an exaggeration to say that this course saved my life, my future and my sanity." - Lakwiita

Welcome to SLG

If this sounds familiar...

... you're not alone.

"I can’t get rid of the heaviness in my chest"

"I’ve always wondered why I am so sad and can't seem to enjoy life like other people"

"I am irritable and can't focus on anything"

"The moment I wake up I feel anxious and overwhelmed."

"The tightness in my jaw and shoulders turns into pain."

"I get horrible migraines"

"I've been having panic attacks daily and struggle to keep going."

Millions of people around the world are currently living with stress and trauma. Or more importantly, the effects of it.

But it shouldn't be that way.

Not when Indigenous wisdom can help you out of it.

My name is Mandy Martini- Kvyen (Moon) Chihuailaf (Mist Spreading Over a Lake), and I'm Indigenous Mapuche.

I'm the founder of SLG, the Science of Letting Go, which started in 2016 inside a domestic violence support group, and grew into what it is today–– a global online program that makes people repeatedly say, "It changed my life."

In SLG, you don't learn how to cope and manage with anxiety, numbness, and everything else that comes with living with stress and trauma. You learn how to heal from it for good.

"I feel so light and happy in my body, but also a feeling of trust that my body can get through anything. I just wanted to say thank you! This has really changed my future and life in so many ways and I feel that everything is possible."

- Asta, Norway

"It's been a year now since I signed up and it has transformed everything!"

Like most people, you've probably tried everything that's out there without much luck. Therapy, medication, yoga classes, meditation, self-help books, positive affirmations, anxiety blankets, stress balls. You've done and tried it all.

Or... have you only tried what's offered here, in this society?

For a very long time, other perspectives and sources of knowledge have been pushed away and silenced. All in the spirit of creating an homogeneous Western society. Which is why when you walk out that door, or scroll through your phone, all you hear is the same.

That's what happened to me. I spent over eight years listening to the same perspective about healing that you're probably doing right now. The perspective that learning how to cope (read: learn to live) with stress and trauma is the only option. Not heal from it.

And no matter how much it made me suffer. No matter how it made me doubt that I could ever be happy again, and made me feel like I'd lost myself — I still believed it.

When you only hear the same it's easy to believe it's the truth and even normal.

But ask yourself this: How can a world where people struggle just to keep going be normal? A world where stress is called both an epidemic and a "silent killer."

Feeling skeptical? I don't blame you.

It's not. It's a warning sign.

Luckily, there's knowledge that can help change this. Knowledge that has existed (much much) longer than any civilization.

My people call it Kuyfi Kimvn–– ancient knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation.

It's the knowledge of how our bodies work and who we are as human beings. It teaches us how to heal, and it's knowledge that my family and our people have fought to protect since the assimilation process of Indigenous people started.

If I'd listened from the beginning, I wouldn't have wasted those eight years of my life. Luckily, it saved the rest of it.

Photo of my family around 1883. It was taken to show they had "civilized" the Lonko (Chief) of one of the largest territories and communities-- my great-great grandfather Chihuailaf. (They didn't. My family continued to fight against assimilation.) The man and woman on the far left and right are from the church and state.

Here's what you need to know...

Stress and trauma gets into every little corner of your life and spreads like a virus.

It doesn't just affect your mind but your body, health, and your whole look on life.

And it doesn't just affect you but your kids, your partner, your family members, your friends, coworkers, and everyone around you.

That's why my people have always prioritized "walking in balance."

Because when you're living imbalanced — like you are with stress and trauma — it spreads to your family, community, and everything around.

You know what they say, "Misery loves company."

When I was diagnosed with severe anxiety, chronic depression, and PTSD, all these other symptoms started rushing in...

Exhaustion that made my body feel too heavy to move. Insomnia. Nightmares and flashbacks. Spacing out and forgetting what I was doing, even while driving (scary).

Startled and triggered while at the same time feeling numb. Always feeling sick. So much tension in my body that I was in pain and waking up with my jaw clenched shut. Migraines that lasted for days, every single week.

I got easily irritated and frustrated. Avoided other people, including phone calls and texts from friends and family.

Most of all, I felt like I was wasting my life in bed, alone, without the energy to do anything about it.

When you're in a "state of survival," it becomes the only thing your mind, body, and energy can focus on.

That's why it becomes so hard to think about yourself, your loved ones, the future. Even to be creative or think about anything else except what you're going through right now, at this moment.

If you're always exhausted, remember: it takes a lot of energy to survive.

The good news is— You don't have to live like this anymore.



The online program that not only debunks healing as a "lifelong journey," but makes you wish you'd started it sooner. Much sooner.

The key to healing isn't learning how to cope with what's causing you pain, it's getting to the bottom of what's causing it.

Talking. Theorizing. Trying to numb your triggers long enough to fake a smile— it doesn't work. At least not in the long-run.

You have to let your body finish the survival cycle that starts the moment you go through something stressful or traumatic. And that's exactly what you get to do inside SLG.

As soon as you start the program, you get to finish the survival cycle and release all the stress you're currently living with so that your body can start to heal.

Your body is powerful once it gets to do what it's naturally meant to do.

That's why things work fast around here...

“I wanted to do SLG for so many years but wasn't able to financially, but imagine how much money I’ve put into medicine and psychiatry in all those years. Oh my god!”

- Matilda

Matilda, a mother of two, finally took the plunge and joined SLG after living with depression and anxiety for over 25 years, and as unhappy as she was, she was ready to leave her husband.

After only three weeks inside SLG, she sent me this:

In just a few weeks, you could start noticing...

  • anxiety and overwhelm gone
  • triggers gone
  • more energy
  • better focus
  • improved relationships with loved ones
  • good sleep
  • better health
  • confidence
  • physical pains disappearing
  • PMS or other extreme period pains gone
  • your skin looking better (even glowing)
  • not craving alcohol to numb
  • not needing ways you used before to cope
  • lots of excitement for life
  • feeling like a new person

    ... and the list goes on (and on).

(Of course, results vary from person to person.)

Maybe your body will cry out and thank you...

"I'd a conversation with my best friend,  and somehow we came across some unpleasant situations that I lived through as a child. That's when I started to realize that it doesn't trigger me anymore.

No pain, no fear, no shame, no tears. Only simple memories but it doesn't hurt anymore... I feel very grateful!!!"

- Anastasia
(after only 2 weeks inside SLG)

❤️ ❤️ ❤️

The best part?

(Besides finally getting to move on with your life.)

You get to do it in your own pace.

Once you're a member, you're a member for life.

You can close the blinds, put your phone on "do not disturb," and go through the whole program in a week.

Or you can do a little bit stretched out over time.

Whatever you prefer. 

You'll always have access to the SLG platform, our live talking circles, and my support.

"I owe you my very life. I was at a point last summer where I could no longer keep moving forward without something to help heal me. I was at the absolute end of my rope. If I can heal from this then so can others."

- L.

If learning how to live without stress and trauma stuck in your body meant you could save your relationships, health, your life, even money and time…
Would it be worth it?

"I thought the only solution was therapy, which I'd been doing weekly for two years before starting SLG to deal with my childhood trauma, including sexual abuse, at an early age.

It's been one year since I started SLG, and I've never felt more free and empowered to LIVE LIFE, not merely survive. At first, I could go farther without therapy sessions, and now I've completely stopped and can use that time and money on other things. 

I don't feel triggered by what I went through anymore, and I can understand my body and let it heal naturally. Now, I have the energy and mental space to raise my boys, take care of my relationships, make new true friends, which I always struggled with, and grow my business to levels I never thought I could.

All because I'm not living in survival anymore."

"I hope people see the value in what you're offering... I've been working through module 1 and I would pay again and again to feel the amount of relief I felt from your program. And this is just the beginning."

- Nictíre

"After 40 years of suffering from the effects of extreme abuse and multiple traumas, I have finally found REAL healing, real relief and a clear path forward. Years of talk therapy left me more traumatized. I did not want to have to relive my trauma in order to heal. No need to relive or even talk about your experiences. You have all the tools you need to heal inside your body - let Mandy show you how!"

End the cycle of trauma for yourself...

... and for future generations.

"I almost didn’t go through with signing up. Nearly convincing myself to put the money toward other debt- what a mistake that would've been. There's no debt like generations and a lifetime of stress/trauma. Before, I'd little capacity to deal with anything and was easily overwhelmed.

Then I started working through SLG. 

Now I have more clarity, heaviness continues to lift, triggers have lost their traction, my periods are no longer thrusting me into fight/flight/freeze. Maybe it all sounds too good to be true but it’s not."

"I wake up with a genuine feeling of excitement instead of anxiety, doubt, and dread."

Who SLG is not for...

  • If you're not ready to listen and show up for yourself. This is fine, but no matter how good our knowledge is, nothing can change unless you show up and actually do what I show you.

  • You want to sign up so you can use what you learn to make money of it–– please don't. SLG is here to support those who need help, while also supporting our "on-ground" work to rebuild and help our families and communities. Also, we've already being exploited enough as it is, right?

"I'd spent 27 years trying to cope and bought it with doubt after seeing what the "wellness" community was offering. But what Mandy teaches is what I'd been waiting for all these years.

SLG is rooted in Indigenous wisdom and has been an invaluable tool for my healing, and I've told many friends about it because it works!

Everything Mandy shares is from the heart. I am so lucky to have been connected to you Ñaña, you are one of a kind and I'm so grateful that you decided to share such sacred wisdom with us."

"When I found SLG I was skeptical to be honest."

SLG: the online healing program that even Western doctors call "mind-blowing" and life-changing.

Because, "they never taught us this in medical school."

Watch, listen, read... whichever way you prefer to learn.

Like most in this society, you're probably working very hard to juggle all the responsibilities and pressure you have that comes with living in this society. And often with limited (or no) support.

That's why SLG is made to be easy to digest and learn from— in your own time and pace.

Plus, the "work" you do in SLG will help you not get overwhelmed. And give you more energy for the things that matters.

Overwelmed by everything you got going on?









+ you also get access to past Talking Circle recordings and other trainings from over the years.

Extra support through Talking Circles

Our Elders and family members have always had talking circles in our ruka (huts) to allow members of the community to come together and not only support each other, but help reinforce our knowledge and practices.

The live Talking Circles through Zoom are our "modern" version of it.

When you sign up there'll be 4 live Talking Circles spread out over a month to give you support as you go through the program. If you miss any, don't worry, they're recorded.

Plus, you also get to join future Talking Circles as well.

In a Talking Circle, you can share how much (or as little) you want. You can ask questions, get support, and get to know other members from our global community.

Before, I would speak up for others, but not when it came to myself. Now I'm noticing myself taking up more space, in a genuine way, and a place of being grounded. When I'm alone with myself or go for a walk, I feel like I am with a good friend instead of needing a phone or craving the connection with something artificial. It's going really well for me at work and with my relationship. My family has this big stressor, but I'm still able to enjoy the good things, whereas before, stress would have been in everything, and I wouldn't have been able to focus. By accident, I quit drinking. I am amazed. I am so much more of who I am. So thank you! I'm so happy I found you and SLG.

"I feel so much more like myself, and I'm getting back into things I like."

I used to suffer from restless leg syndrome.

This was a big pain point as I would lay in bed for hours trying to get comfortable, rubbing my leg, or even kicking the back of my calf trying to make the feeling go away or eventually take IBU just so I could sleep.  

Mandy, I am forever grateful for you and all that you share. I truly have learned so much from you. 

"SLG has changed me for the better and the future is looking bright."

A peek inside SLG


If your body is fighting to survive then it's affecting your health, your immune system, your energy, and your ability to focus. That's why we start to physically release the survival responses so that your body can start the healing process.

(This is why members notice results so fast. Hip pain disappeared overnight, "best sleep of my life," feeling lighter, more energy, etc.)

Think about all the things that bother you in your life. That makes you nauseous, worried, and overwhelmed. From news, social media, work, maybe even your loved ones-- stress is everywhere. This means your body will respond with the survival instinct to help you go through it.

It's so important to know what triggers you. Not because you can avoid it completely (unless you become a hermit), but so that you can prevent stress on your body as much as possible. In this module, I'll show you how you can spend less time reacting and more time enjoying your life.

Imagine waking up feeling at peace and connected with who you are. This is where your environment: mind, body, spirit, and land come into a full circle and you see how connected they are to each other. And how important it is for you to pay attention. It's like an ecosystem, you have to focus on the whole, not just on one part of you.

You'll learn how to build connections and boundaries (might seem like they contradict but they actually don't) to help you even when this society or who knows, a random stranger, throws you a curveball.

You were meant to do so much more than living your life just trying to survive each day.

After seeing the life-changing (not exaggerating) results from SLG members, this bonus module was born. It's here to help you get ready for a new chapter in your life, however that might look like. All I know is that it's bright.

Ready to feel relief instead of stress and overwhelm?

When you're too tired to fight and too tired to run- numbness can sometimes become a last attempt to protect yourself against pain.

But it doesn't have to stay that way.

I’m falling in love with this course and it’s literally changing my life. I’m currently super sick and unable to do a lot of things so this course is what I can look forward to everyday.

Like phenomenal.


"... it's literally changing my life."

SLG appeared at exactly the right time for me. I was struggling with issues relating to divorce and an extremely unhappy marriage. During the course, I also uncovered old traumas that I had forgotten/suppressed and was able to work on as well.

I am incredibly grateful for the knowledge I've acquired and to Mandy for creating this course and for her support. It has been a life changing experience, I would recommend it to anyone. 

Huge thanks and so much love xo

 "a life changing experience"

I've come to see a lot of what I have not let go of and in the process, through your beautiful teaching of doing so each and everyday, each and every moment.
You're an incredible teacher and soul.

Entire course is an absolute get, keep and use! Blessings.

"I want to let you know your course is INCREDIBLE!!"


I was a zombie walking through my everyday routine and missing out on what matters. Now I'm on a roll living my best life BECAUSE OF YOU! I've been much more aware and living in the moment. I promise you, the birds chirping every morning have never sounded more beautiful. Do you realize how grateful I am for you?
 It's because of you and your willingness to share with others your incredible knowledge.

"You really have no clue what you started IN ME!"

Even when you feel like you've tried it all and it feels hopeless, if given a chance, your body can still catch up and surprise you.

Before, I didn't know that I was living with stress. All these physical symptoms were happening and I would just live with it. And then I would end up in the hospital hooked up to a machine because I felt like I was having a heart attack. I was in and out of hospitals for years because I couldn't keep food down. I was vomiting up everything.
Turns out it was stress and anxiety and it took 31 years for me to be able to help myself.

The amount of money that I've spent on therapy sessions that sometimes made it worse. And working with my family doctor who tested me but couldn't figure out what it was. This program, in the one year that I've been practicing the tools that you've given me, the change that it's made in my life, how much of the darkness it's lifted off my shoulders-- it's priceless. I just wish I had it sooner.

SLG 30-Day Peace of Mind Guarantee

We both know what's out there and how confusing and overwhelming it can be when you don't know if something will work or not.

That's why SLG comes with a 30-Day Peace of Mind Guarantee.

The catch? You have to give SLG a chance.

That means you show up and do the classes and everything I guide you through. If within 30 days you feel like it did nothing for you: send me an email with proof that you did follow through, along with an explaination of why it didn't work for you, and you'll get your refund.

It's a big difference going through your life actually living it, versus just trying to survive it.

Isabel's Children

Isabel’s Children is a money fund that goes directly to support survivors of violence and food insecurity in Indigenous communities.

In the memory and honor of Mandy’s chuchu (grandmother) Isabel- an Indigenous woman who despite a life filled with abuse, trauma, starvation and injustice, still did everything she could to help anyone who needed her. With her knowledge of healing, plant medicines, and her cooking, or simply opening her doors for someone who needed a place to stay, whatever little she had, she gave.

Isabel's Children is funded by every enrollment into SLG School.
