Reiki is Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress…
I was trained in Reiki levels 1 and 2 in the mid 90’s. I wanted to be trained after I had a Reiki session and felt like I was put into a meditative state by the practitioner, and for someone who is ADHD, and always on the go… it was Magical!
My first experience with Shamanic healing was when a family member was in crisis and regular therapy was not working; medication was not an option. A friend suggested Indigenous Roots, Sierra (Thayer) MacFeeters. My family member had a significant decrease in issues with the first visit. We continued weekly and then monthly. I was amazed. What the modern Western Model could not achieve, healing was taking place before my eyes. A couple of years later I had the opportunity to take a course at Kripalu, “Yoga and Shamanism” ; I was awakened, alive, enthralled. It was a heated, clearing, healing, spiritual, ceremonial, accepting, non-judging, life-changing experience for me. A year later Sierra was offering an apprenticeship training in Shamanism, and I had the opportunity to continue my education and training. This was a nine-month program in which we delved deeply into teachings and healing of the earth and spirit. My thirst to learn more within the realm of Yoga, Shamanism, and Energy Light work, will never be satiated.
I have continue to add layers upon layers of training, over the last few years I have been taking workshops with Peter Clark of Shamans Flame in Woodbury Vt. He is an incredible facilitator, delving deeper and into into the our own consciousness. Peter was also a teacher with the Foundation of Shamanic Studies for many years ( Michael Harper, the Way of the Shaman). I have also competed Core Shamanism with NaN Moss, also one of the original teachers with Foundation of Shamanic Studies.
I gather from all of my trainings, teachers, spirit guides, and intuition, as I weave and create circles for us to explore the realms together.
Shamans work in the realm with Spirits. Shamans will call on the directions of the N, S, E, and W; Great Spirit, Mother Earth, and all those who have come before. Shamans journey to other realms in search of power animals, lessons, teachings, healing, soul retrievals, and guidance.

They can assist you in healing, protection, guidance, teaching. “Working with a power animal is an instinctual process about who we are becoming, not about who we would prefer to be. It is up to us to learn its attributes as it reveals its wisdom.”

Shamanic Divination Intuitive spiritual guidance and Soul Retrieval
When we suffer trauma, a piece of our soul may leave us. Have you ever looked into the eyes of someone whose eyes were vacant? An individual who seemed lost? Not altogether there? A shaman can journey with the assistance of your power animals, your ancestors, your guardian angels and look for and retrieve these lost soul fragments, and return them to you – if you are ready to receive them.
