I am frequently asked, "What is shamanism?" What an amazingly complex question! From a purely technical point of view, Shamanism is an ancient spiritual technique that all cultures around the world have embraced and personalized at one point or another. But most importantly, it teaches
humanity that everything is alive, deeply connected and has a spirit!
One of the primary techniques is
called the shamanic journey. This state is achieved via drumming and rattling allowing the conscious self to release into the collective unconscious for the purpose of connecting with helping spirits. These helping spirits can assist us in our day to day challenges as well as with the spiritual and energetic parts of the traumas we experience throughout our lives.
Left unattended, these imbalances can cause physically detrimental results. These imbalances can look like chronic conditions of any kind which may include physical illness, fear, anxiety, depression, loss of energy, suicidal tendencies, obsessive thinking, repeating patterns, emotional removal, or recurring bouts of anger that
come out of nowhere. If you feel stuck of if you feel like a part of you has been left behind or does not feel the same since a specific moment in your life, shamanic work comes into play. For an in-depth look into the definition of shamanism and how it applies to your health and wellbeing, please explore this link to Sandra Ingerman's website and her incredible Abstract on Shamanism.
I facilitate work in the energetic realms with the wounded parts of ourselves that have gone through stress and trauma. These parts of us can be in the past, present or future. This type of work is called soul retreival which consists of finding, transforming, nurturing and integrating the parts of ourselves that get stuck in their past and can no longer appropriately respond to the present moment causing unhealthy reactions. These parts of ourselves are then triggered again and again throughout our lives unless they are met with understanding and compassion.
During a shamanic session you have a personal hands on experience as I guide you on the journey. You will see and meet these parts of yourself first hand. The power of your own personal experience is always far greater than anything I can show or tell you as a practionter.
