I started my journey with shamanism in 2009 when I attend a shamanic journey group in San Francisco, CA. While I entered that first circle a stranger, I left it a friend and brother. Not just of the attendees but of the Earth, Pachamama, herself. I have tried to look back--attempted to retrace my steps, but that's the thing about shamanism. It is a worldview without straight lines. When you commit to it fully, your whole world changes.
Shamanism is a tricky word to understand. It has multiple, simultaneous definitions operating culturally right now. I want to make very clear that make no claims to an indigenous lineage. I do not practice Native American shamanism, nor do I share any sacred secrets of ancient indigenous lineages in my teachings or work with clients.
The shamanism that I practice is rooted in anthropologic foundations of Albert Villoldo and Michael Harner. I am heavily influenced by the work of Sandra Ingerman and Starhawk. I built my medicine bundle with Greg Harper, who studied with Villoldo and Q'ero healers from Peru. I have sat in sweatlodges in the Twisted Hairs, Lakota, and Josef Rael traditions. I have sat in sacred medicine ceremonies in the Shipibo tradition and have worked with various sacred plant medicines since 2012. The medicine that I share for the healing of all is the medicine that I have gathered from the Earth and from Great Spirit during all of these many years of prayer and transformation.
The Shamanic Illumination is the core healing tool that I use to work with your energy body for healing. It is the starting point, but not always the final destination. As we work together building a safe, compassionate container for your healing deeper healings often emerge. Just ask for more information if you are curious to know more. Please book a 30 min Intro Session prior to booking other services so that we can talk about what you need and set expectations together.
