I learn things experientially and bring this into my practice in how I facilitate & work with others to meet their intentions and goals. My passions and purpose are rooted in honoring the bridge between humans and Spirit and in supporting those who value integrity and personal responsibility on their unique soul path and journey to wellness.
I began maintaining a healing arts practice and seeing clients in 2007 and began facilitating shamanic journeying groups & workshops in 2010. My education and training includes certification in Rebirthing (breathwork), (Usui method) Reiki I & II attunements, apprenticeships in Core Shamanism and Plant Spirit Medicine as well as personal experience working in the Mestizo Shamanic tradition of the Peruvian Amazon.
I first learned to journey from a Shamanic Practitioner with whom I apprenticed one on one with in Nederland, CO. She taught me experientially how to journey shamanically, retrieve and work in partnership with my helping spirits and ancestors to diagnose shamanic illness and facilitate various forms of shamanic healing for myself and other humans, animals and the land. From there my shamanic spiritual practice took root and I went on to complete experiential shamanic training with Alida Birch, Sandra Ingerman, Mary Pat Palmer, RH, Wendy Read, Robert Moss, Renna Shesso, Rachel Weitz, Christina Pratt, Reid Hart and Betsy Bergstrom.
Overall, my formal education and training has provided me with experience in various shamanic traditions, as well as constructs that I can safely and effectively work with when facilitating healing work, groups and workshops, however as Sandra Ingerman notes, “Shamanism is a path of direct revelation.” I rely upon my relationship with my Helping Spirits and the Spirit that resides within all of creation to guide and empower my personal practices and teachings. They are my best friends and my greatest teachers. My path has and continues to be one of commitment, trust, humility, integrity and self-discipline. I’ve come to know compassion as one of my greatest allies along with surrender and trust. My practice and the medicine I carry is ever evolving. I am wholeheartedly honored to be alive and on this path, to be stretched and challenged, blessed and blissed and everything in between.
