What is shamanism and what is shamanic healing?
"Shaman" and "shamanism" are not familiar words. They are Tungus words from Siberia.
Shamanism is healing for the spirit, medicine for the soul.
Each culture in the world has spiritual healing practices which fall under the term "shamanism".
Shamanism as a Personal Path of Awakening
Shamanism is a personal path of spiritual growth. It is also a path for healing others. As a personal path, we do practices which awaken, nurture, and strengthen the Light that is already within us.
Shamanism and Shamanic Healing is about working with our Light. We work with the energy of our spirit to be whole, strong, complete, and to walk our path in a good way. Shamanism is about clarifying our life path. It is about letting go of that which does not serve us. Shamanic Healing restores unavailable energies so that we can walk our chosen path in a beautiful way.
It is the practice of connecting to the heart and intelligence in all things and learning harmony and balance.
It is not religion, but rather a path of mysticism. Shamanic Healing is a process of spiritual healing for awakening and tending your Luminous Self.
Shamanism As a Path of Healing Others
Shamanic Healing is a sacred healing ceremony. The compassionate Helping Spirits do the healing. The shamanic person merely the best conditions s/he knows how and invites the Healing Spirits to do the healing. We invite the Spirits of Compassion to come and to help us change what can be changed at this time. Shamanic Healing addresses and treats the spiritual components of illness, constriction, disconnection. It is not healing for the body.

What clients say about shamanic healing:
"I would say that I feel clear and unburdened, and empowered in a general overarching sense. I seem to be able to access joy and happiness more easily and hang on to it longer. I am smiling much, much more than I was before. My response to stress, both chronic and acute, is much better. I feel more balanced overall. My physical health has improved as well, across the board.
I feel like the session freed up my inner light, and everyone I know can sense it or see it. It has been so impressive to a few people that they have said they were going to see you themselves for a session."
Client report, 2016
Shamanism and shamanic healing has no doctrine, but rather a few core ideas:
- everything is alive
- everything is conscious
- everything grows and changes
- everything is responsive and can communicate
- everything is connected
Many shamanic people believe what physicists now know: what we call 'matter' is actually Light. You are Light. You are energy.
What To Expect in a shamanic healing session
We begin with a simple purification with Aqua de Florida, a sweet smelling cologne from Peru. Then, we invite the Sacredness to open and bloom. Into this sacredness we invite the Spirits of Compassionate Healing. After the Spirits arrive, I journey to them to find the remedy and I bring that remedy back. Next we apply the recipe of the remedy the Spirits gave me.
Sometimes an issue resolves in a single session. Often, this requires more than one session. Shamanic Healing always requires on-going work on the client's part. This is to maintain a certain level of clarity and health and to anchor the changes that have occurred. The decision to pursue more work after our initial session is always up to you. It is never dictated by me or by the Helping Spirits.
After we are done, we thank the Spirits of Compassion and release the working space to return to normal. Depending on the healing work, I may do follow-up work on my own to be shared with you at a later date. Not all sessions require this.
