Shamanism is an ancient healing practice and humanity's oldest form of relationship to Spirit.
Its enables the practitioner to elicit a shift from ordinary consciousness into an altered state of consciousness (non-ordinary reality). The shamanic journey is a pathway to the Spirit Web of power and knowledge, where we can request spiritual healing, obtain information, and gain power for Right Action.
I teach shamanic journeying to anyone interested in using this powerful tool for growth and guidance.
Here are some quotes from my teachers about shamanic journeying that I find really useful to share with others:
Shamanic journeying is the inner art of traveling to “invisible worlds” beyond ordinary reality to retrieve information for change in any area of your life--from spirituality and health to work and relationships. -- Sandra Ingerman
What’s really important about shamanism is that there is another reality that you can personally discover... We are not alone. -- Michael Harner
Many people in our culture only focus on making changes in the outer world. Well, of course we need to come up with plans for our life, but we need to balance out our rational planning with exploring our inner world and learning how to cultivate a rich, peaceful, and powerful inner space. We need to move from outer visioning to the power of working with our inner visions. We need to wake up out of the collective trance that teaches us to only focus on the material realm. It is time to explore how to open ourselves to new dimensions of life.”– Sandra Ingerman, Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of a Shamanic Life
If you yearn for a fuller spiritual sense of yourself, with a deeper connection to life... If you feel like something is missing from your life... Or if you've "never been the same since..." Shamanic methods can help you reconnect with yourself, and with your world.

We lose parts of ourselves due to trauma, and from the abusive / destructive patterns inherent in our culture. Soul retrieval is a shamanic practice that brings back these lost soul parts when they are ready to return.
In my role as shamanic healer, I travel into the spirit world on behalf of my client. Working through the assistance of a power animal--I search for, heal, and then bring back these lost parts for my client. This ceremony, set with healing intention and conducted with sacred drumming, brings about a profound sense of wholeness and healing.
Following a soul retrieval the client may return for several more sessions to learn ways of integrating the returned soul pieces, deepening the empowerment process.
