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. In addition to my formal education and training, my personal healing journey has included experiential exploration of Mestizo (Peruvian) Plant Shamanism & Native American Rites of Passage.
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 practices took root and I went on to complete experiential training with Alida Birch, Sandra Ingerman, Mary Pat Palmer, RH, Wendy Read, Robert Moss, Renna Shesso, Christina Pratt and Betsy Bergstrom.
My formal education, training and personal healing journey have given me an opportunity to explore and experience different Earth Based Cosmologies and Shamanic traditions as there are many paths to being in relationship and living in harmony with the Natural world. Life on the planet is constantly changing and the challenges we face today can be blessings with the wisdom of yesterday and tomorrow. This is one of the many reasons why I rely on my relationship with my Helping Spirits and the Spirit that resides within all of creation to guide and empower my personal practices and teachings. 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.
