The Rhythm of Cosmic Love


12 Beats is a storytelling framework for uncovering your real love story.
This website serves as a resource for Oriya's Real Love Coaching with the intention to share its wisdom (freely) to anyone interested in:
  • Understand Relationships - what generates and maintains harmony in relationships?
  • Decode Your Own Love Journey - the four cosmic "acts" along the journey of real love.
  • Uncover your deeper love story - identify the rhythm of real love - in 12 beats.
This 12 beats documentation site aims to provide you with the technical framework. I am also working on a free audio companion guide. I am happy to assist and support privately.
Who is this work for?
  • You are struggling in your current intimate relationships.
  • You want real love yet it just seems out of reach.
  • You want to further undertand and even write your real love story.
The 12 Beats are Universal Checkpoints along your heart's rite of passage
We are born to love and be loved. Yet real love and healthy relationships seem either be out to be out of reach or extremely complicated and difficult to get into and moreover, maintain long term.
My name is Oriya, I am a husband, father and a guide.
For 40 years I struggled with love and intimacy.
Beginning with a tumultuous childhood home where my parents struggled with the pain of betrayal, divorce and addiction , all to the way to my own adult home life riddled with the same exact challenges I tried to run away from.
During my first 10 years of relationship with my wife, I was also deeply into shamanism, healing and storytelling.
This 12 Beats methodology comes straight from a decade of experiences with hundreds of shamanic ceremonies with psychedelics and sacred plant medicine, both as a participant and and as guide... coupled with intense research and study of traditional screenwriting and storytelling.
Here is the truth, I didn't think I was going to teach this stuff as a storytelling modality for real love... I was studying this material to help me with a my memoir project, and all of the healing work I was doing, I did for a living... it's how I paid my bills.
Only when my life imploded and I was literally forced (by life) to take 5 years off and focus on my own healing and relationship, that's when I finally arrived "home" in my own real love journey and intimacy with my dear wife and life-partner - Karri Noel.
During my time off work and away from the hustle of society, I kept going over these storytelling telling beats that come from mainstream Hollywood in combination with wisdom that came from my training as an "urban shaman" and all of my sacred-substance experiences.
I uncovered uncanny parallels between Hollywood screenwriting techniques, Shamanic Healing Wisdom and my own Real Love Journey!
When I turned 40, something deep inside me clicked, thanks for the help of a Mentor, and now, at 42, I am ready to put this work out to the world, so I can support and guide other individuals and couples in their own Real Love Journey.
I am blessed to work with my soulmate Karri doing this sacred work together of creating more love in the world.
My intention with this work is to increase your level of presence, awareness and grace along your real love journey...
With little or no awareness, we typically repeat the same checkpoints, stations and beats along life's journey again and again... and again...
The 12 Beats provide you with a MAP and a NAVIGATION TOOL for your real love journey.
Together, we remember!


The 12 Beats (M3) system was developed over a decade, during my professional training and experience with psychedelics & plant-medicines both as a participant and as facilitator (consciousness engineering).
In parallel, I was also researching & studying story structure, screenwriting and writing techniques for my own memoir project to uncover & share my deeper stories & truths (memoir engineering).
After 12 years of intense R&D, the two parallels merged into this one body-of-work.
My intention here simple and also bigger than me - to take what I learned in the mystery school of shamanism and sacred-substances and create a writing program that will serve as medicine with the same effects... and even better as it belongs to this realm.
I've used indigenous shamanic wisdom integrated with proven storytelling principals to create m3 as a tool and map for writers and seekers alike.
  • Healing is the work of telling a new story
  • Shamans are storytellers
  • Writers are shamans
Like I said, my intention was to create a tool that is as powerful as psychedelics and sacred-substances... and I am humbled to share with you my medicine -
You see - it is not enough to know the truth - we each have to reject our own personal lies on this journey home...
You know the whole Hero's Journey thing? a Hero leaves home on the a rite of passage journey with the intention of learnings something so juicy that he/she/they come back later on with some elixir they can share with the tribe?
Well after decades of searching, looking and breaking $hit... well, I found some elixirs and by god, I tried them all...
This storytelling & healing modality - is what I am brining back to the tribe!
I have identified these 4 relationships & acts, 12 beats in my own journey of self-realization. I didn't just learn them by reading and learning - but by experiencing them myself over a dedicated quest since 1996!
12 beats... yep, sounds simple and it is... but the deeper wisdom is there to help you decode your journey, uncover your truths and maybe even share your deeper stories of healing and transformations.
Big promise? I hope so.
I initially developed this documentation site as a resource for my own personal writing project, yet its intelligence has a life of its own... it is now developing as a healing modality that's transforming millions of lives!
If you have any questions or would like some support in applying this work to your healing and self-realization journey, I would love to hear from you. I know this stuff works, and I'd love to make it work for you, Oriya, Fall, 2022
This entire project is dedicated to my teachers & community that helped me remember who I am and return home so I can share my light. Namaste AB.
Okay! now let's get to work...
