A health & wellness company to enhance your body, mind, emotions and spirit
Check out this great video from an Holistic Happenings, a local Amherst TV station. I was featured talking about Holistic nursing.
Divination journeys will be done prior to the session to receive information and instruction for the session. If specific information becomes known, any or all of the modes of energy work may be used to bring about healing. The spirits do the work; I am but a healing channel. Distance healing is available as well as Shamanic Coaching & Counseling.
Helping Compassionate Spirit Retrieval (Power Animal and/or Teacher): Journey to Non-Ordinary Reality, Dream-time, and Other Worlds to connect with compassionate beings that live there. These beings offer help, guidance, healing, and direct revelation to all of us. Power animal/teacher/element retrieval will help restore power and well-being to a client. Shamanism tracks where they came from and the healing can then clear, release, transform whatever is ready to shift and change during the session. When you leave a session you know what it is that we have cleared, and you can take steps not to recreate it in your life. I give you tools and techniques that will support you as you become empowered to enjoy your happiest life now.
Soul Retrieval: Loss of power/ soul essence causing depression, post-traumatic stress syndrome, chronic illness, series of misfortunes, illness, immune deficiency problems, addictions, unending grief, etc. A soul retrieval ceremony will be done to remove spiritual blockages or negative energies a client may have taken on causing illness to body, mind, or spirit. The harmful energies are extracted. This work can be done on both the living and the deceased. Helping spirts cross over who may be stuck is called psychopomp work (a guide of souls to the place of the dead). This work may extend for a few sessions and requires the client to actively participate in post healing procedures to assist integration of the work and empowerment.
Reiki and Karuna Reiki Healing:
Balancing the chakras and performing healing arts to bring about increased healing and well-being for a client. Reiki is a highly respected healing technique where life energy is focused through the hands and channeled into the body by means of touch. This helps to activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Reiki is great for dissolving energy blocks, decreasing stress and promoting relaxation, and to bring healing, balance and inner peace. A unique blend of aromatic essential oils can be custom blended to enhance the healing process.
Cherokee Body Work: Almost all indigenous cultures had direct, hands on methods of healing; the Cherokee were no exception. The sessions may well incorporate shaking of body parts, acupressure, crystals, breath work, guided imagery, dialogue, drumming and singing with the bodywork. It is a form of energy medicine.
Shamanic Teaching & Practices
Shamanism is possibly the oldest and most wide spread healing practice known to man. The shaman is someone that acts as a bridge between the physical and metaphysical worlds. Traditional shamans communicate with spirits in order to help clients and the planet heal. In today’s world, shamans can be found in almost all walks of life. Training to be a shamanic practitioner is a beautiful and humbling experience. Learning ways to heal yourself, others, and the planet is an extraordinary way to tap into your potential. I was trained by Sandra Ingerman one of the foremost international shamanic teachers of our time.
Following is list of teachings and workshops I would be honored to share:
Basic Journeying: (taught in a 2-day workshop) Introduction to shamanism and journeying for oneself and others. Divination journeys, illness from a shamanic perspective, power animal retrieval, and how to interpret journeys
Medicine for the Earth & Healing with Spiritual Light: (can be taught as a 5 day workshop or spread out over 3 weekends). There are 2 levels to the Medicine for the Earth work/transmutation. It is who we become that changes the world-not what we do. Students will learn through active participation daily practices that create a change of consciousness. There will be ceremonies where we come together as a community to work together to transform pollution and transmute substances of belief patterns. Students will learn to merge with their own divinity and change heavy consciousness into light consciousness and a higher vibration.
Soul Retrieval: (can be taught as 5 day workshop or spread over 3 weekends). Overview of soul loss and illness from a shamanic perspective. Discussion about how one might see, hear, or feel lost souls and how to bring these back. How to tell a healing story. Discussion of stolen souls and releasing them.
Death & Dying and/or Extraction: (taught over 1 weekend) A shaman is a man or woman who works with spiritual healing. A shaman heals both the living and the dead. The shaman heals the dead by performing psychopomp work. The word psychopomp comes from the Greek work psychopomp meaning leader of souls. There will be instruction/journeys on depossession, dismemberment, intrusions, and preparation for transition.
Ancestral Healing: This course has been life changing for everyone who has taken it. A great need is evident in our world at this time to return to ancient practices of honoring our ancestors, assisting them to cross over if they become stuck on the earth plane, receiving blessings and clearing ancestral inter-generational burdens and trauma. We will build a foundation for this work by journeying to each ancestral line: mother's mother, mother's father, father's father, father's mother. We will build an ancestral shrine and learn how to tend it . The lines to connect with and work with our beloved good true, and beautiful ancestors is opened.
Divination journeys will be done prior to the session to receive information and instruction for the session. The spirits do the work; I am but a healing channel. In addition, shamanic coaching, counseling, and apprenticeships available.
Shamanic Classes: Basic Journeying, Healing with Spiritual Light, Medicine for the Earth, Death & Dying, Soul Retrieval, Extraction & Compassionate Depossession.
