Shamanism is a form of spiritual alchemy, where we take the lead (the unwanted) and turn it into gold (what's wanted). The word “shaman” comes from the Siberian Tungus tribe and it means “spiritual healer,” or, “one who sees in the dark.”
Shamanism is the most ancient spiritual and healing practice known to man. In fact, shamanism and shamanic healing date back to over 100,000 years and have been practiced all across the globe — well before our current technologies of communication were possible.
Shamanism is an ancient collection of traditions based on the act of voluntarily accessing and connecting to non-ordinary states for wisdom and healing.
In the shamanic perspective, true healing, spiritual healing, cannot be done on a physical level. Healing means to return to a state of wholeness, and returning to wholeness is purely an inside job. Spiritual healing addresses the root, the spiritual problems that cause dis-ease.
True healing must take place inside the soul of the individual. In other words, you must be willing and ready to take full responsibility for your own healing. Shamanic work will not give you all of the answers because they must come from within you. I will guide you and facilitate a safe space for you access the answers for yourself. It is important to note that shamanic work is not a substitute for conventional medical or psychological services, but can be a complementary adjunct to those supports.
There are many different approaches and strategies that we can use together and selecting the right one for you will be based on your desires, needs and goals for our time together.
In our first session, I'll be asking you questions so that I can obtain a deeper understanding of the situation you are experiencing currently and how it's impacting your wellbeing. Then I will talk with you about a plan and we will begin the work in the second session.
There are no fixed rules about how many sessions you may require because each of us is very different, with different beliefs, different strengths and different levels of resilience. Some people only require 3-4 sessions while others enjoy this work very much and come monthly. I will help you to create a support map that fits with your goals and lifestyle.
All sessions are conducted either by phone or online via ZOOM and a typical session time is 50 minutes.
