My Beautiful Journey

~

Hi,

Thank you for wanting to learn more about me. My most frequently asked question is “how did I get into this line of work?”

Maybe you’ve heard of the term “shamanic calling”, well I had one which started from a dream when I was 13. Ever since that dream, I felt I was in a push and pull relationship with a force that terrified me and would eventually change my entire life. By my late twenties I had gotten so good at pushing this force away that my health, life, and relationships were all crashing around me and I felt like I was dying. In 1999, after my own fathers untimely death, I turned towards this frightening force and said “yes” and began my slow journey of health and recovery.

At the beginning of the century there were very few people around who could understand what I was going through, spiritual and holistic resources were few and the internet was barely starting. I was alone living on an isolated island with my boyfriend and pets which exacerbated my inner turmoil, but gave me a much needed buffer from the outside world. I had no choice but to turn inwards. After I said yes to what frightened me, my true path magically began to reveal itself.

Between 2002 and 2017 I trained extensively in shamanism with leading teachers in the US. You can scroll below to look at my resume if you are interested in experience and credentials. In 2010 I opened a healing studio in my home to treat clients and teach students in shamanism and energy healing which I do to this day.

I never imagined that I would be a shamanic healer. I grew up the daughter of a surgeon, and as a child I remember being so angry at him because I felt he was doing it wrong! Of course he wasn’t doing it wrong, he was an exceptional healer who died way before his time. What my small child’s spirit was seeing was that there was something besides the body and mind that no one was addressing, especially in the lives of women, and that was the health of the soul.

The soul is what I’ve always seen, and to address the pain, longing, needs, joys and desires of our deepest self has become my mission. I didn’t choose shamanism, it chose me, and I have learned it’s wild paths in order to meet the needs of my own ecstatic soul, and those of the people I see. Whether you come to me for healing, training, or guidance, it is your soul that is beckoning you to make the changes necessary for your own true self to shine and lead the way.

I have an insatiable appetite for learning and growing, and my heart is always guiding me. I have taught myself extensively in art, astrology, tarot, herbal medicine, and energy healing. In my life I love to swim in the ocean, paint, take long snoozes on the earth, stargaze, and write. My shamanic path of singing, dancing, music, magic, healing, and nature relationship is my beloved daily muse. This is a blessing I can share with others.

Thank you if you got through all this. And if you feel interested in training with me or coming for healing, please follow the pages on the menu bar. And go to the contact page to get in touch or join my newsletter.

Thank you
Blessed Be
