Shamanism – An Old Art for a New Age
Shamanism is an ancient healing and spiritual
practice that has existed for thousands of years. Archaeological evidence
indicates that shamanism is at least 25,000 years old. Cave painting and
sculptures depict individuals transforming themselves into animals or
healing people through rites and ceremonies.
Various cultures throughout history have
relied upon shamans to journey to locate game and other resources, communicate
with the ancestors, help the newly dead pass over to the next world, extract
negative energies and spirits and return missing soul parts. In modern
times, a shaman also performs house clearings to clear dwellings and land
of negative energies or disincarnate spirits (ghosts). Many practitioners
also combine shamanism and psychology to help people deal with issues
such as chemical dependency, chronic involvement in abusive relationships,
soul loss, depression and many other problems.
My approach to healing is designed to help
clients create their own positive and life changing experiences that lead
to a greater sense of physical and emotional well being. Together we explore
ways to improve mental clarity, release dysfunctional patterns, and build
a sense of personal wholeness. I also believe that an essential component
to lasting healing can be found through strengthening connections to family
and friends, and by creating a larger spiritual community. For this reason
I welcome the opportunity to work with couples, families, business and
community groups who want to heal troubled relationships or build a better
sense of connection and teamwork.
The Shamanic counseling services I offer
include soul retrieval, extraction, Shamanic house and land clearing,
and healing work with the dead and the dying. I am also a Reiki Master
and offer hands-on energetic work and training in this field as well.
