Shamanic healing is undergoing a revival. It is a modern way of applying ancient healing techniques and can be traced back 50,000+ years. In older times the Shaman lived outside his or her village and served the needs of the community by acting as a bridge between this world and the other worlds. S/he did this by journeying to meet guides and spirits in the other worlds. By following their directions, healing & guidance was brought back to the person requesting help.
After 6 years of training in different modalities of energy healing, I began training in core shamanic techniques in 2002. The most intensive part of this took place from 2002-2010 & included 4 year-long courses and a 7 day vision quest ceremony, as well as many other shorter workshops with western and native teachers.
During this time I mainly worked on my own self-healing, eventually also facilitating healing for other individuals and that of the wider world. I continue to learn and grow in this area and add to my experience with different learnings and teachings when I feel called to do so.
