Energy Healing Therapist and Shamanic Practitioner
Podcaster/YouTube and Circle Facilitator
Welcome to my world
My own quest for personal success, contentment and peace of mind began when I was very young, constantly trying new things and turning to nature for connection and escape.
Striving to do (and be) my best is one of my life tenets and begins with impeccable soul care - being "self-employed" - the job of taking care of ME first.
Much of my life I felt lost and alone. I didn't have a teacher or guide in this reality to take care of ME in a way that supported my soul. Maybe you can relate. Maybe that's why you are connecting with me now!
30 years ago, while becoming clean and sober, I was introduced to meditation and energy healing, which led me on a mission to learn ways of including both in my life, personally and professionally. Along the way, I began experiencing shifts and intuitive hits.
A mentor suggested I investigate shamanic teachings. As I began to dig in, I realized I had been naturally walking the path of the shaman for as long as I could remember, through waking journeys or intentional daydreaming, as often as possible.
Shamanic practice is one of the oldest spiritual traditions – found as a basis for most religions.
Did I mention I love to drum?
Oh, did I mention drumming? I LOVE drumming; for my body, mind and soul; drumming for you, drumming for the planet - alone, in sessions and in circle. The sound of the drum is like the first sound we hear in the womb, the heartbeat of our human mother and the heartbeat of the universe, the cosmos.
Drumming seems to have been a part of every ancient culture around the globe. They have been a part of my life since I was a child. Drumming is a very significant practice in most shamanic or mystical teachings. The first known drum circle, according to Wikipedia, was in 5500 B.C. in China. A drum circle is really any group of people gathered for the purpose of playing drums and percussions. Although many include rhythmic dance, chanting, and other instruments.
I include the drum in my sessions, and life, as much as possible through journeying, drum circles and drum healing sessions. Several clients consistently asks for, "more drumming and more journeying".
The drum brings us together while connecting us with our inner drum, our own heart beat!
Why Shamanic Healing?
What is a shaman? A Shaman is a person who interacts with both the physical (seen) and spiritual (unseen) world. Typically, they connect with benevolent spirits and guides to assist in messages, healing, encouragement, tracking soul work, answer seeking and ritual. They work to restore harmony to individuals, working environments, homes, animals, communities, and the planet.
Almost every culture includes some history of a Shaman or medicine person. The titles may be different – the intentions are the same. Aligning with nature and the spirit realm (the other side, non-ordinary reality) for assistance in this realm, the Earth realm. This is the foundation for everything I do in this life, today!
The teachings I have learned solidify my beliefs that:
what we focus on multiplies and EVERYTHING is energy. How we flow through life depends on our own energy levels and connection to creation.
I have had many teachers including Sandra Ingerman, Alberto Villolodo, Joan Wilcox, Christine Stevens, Jane Burns, Daniel Foor, Robin Rice, Puma Freddy Quispe, Rinpoche, and of course, my own cosmic council! The Universe is an amazing place that we are all part of – that we are all made up of! We are -Creation itself!
My choice for a good life is self-employment. My "job" is taking care of me by focusing as much as possible on joy, peace, abundance, clarity, bliss and above all LOVE. My work is taking the best of what I've learned and sharing it with you in the hopes that you will find peace and feel empowered in healing your life on all levels, through practicing The Art of Impeccable Soul Care.
