Teaching is my passion
As a former schoolteacher, I have been shaped by years of intense training and classroom experiences. Looking back, I feel this prepared me in many ways to teach shamanism, although in the mid-90's I would have never imagined that I'd eventually be teaching in this capacity. After practicing shamanism and advanced shamanic healing techniques for the past decade, I feel that the past 20+ years combined experiences have dovetailed nicely. These years have supplied me with skills to bring forth sacred teachings that I have learned through my teachers and mentors, my own personal experiences as well as teachings of my beloved Helping Spirits.
My workshops are thoughtfully planned out, energetically prepared and held in a safe container. Typically, when I open Circle, I lay out what is appropriate practice and conduct for students in Circle so we can co-create a cohesive Circle together for the benefit for all present, which includes students and Spirit. After calling in the Directions and aligning with the Spirits, I allow for the Helping Spirits of those present to direct the personal teachings through shamanic journeys. My facilitation consists of the structure in how to navigate the shamanic worlds in a safe and effective manner, while giving occasional feedback as well as energetically holding the space of the Circle. As I allow the wisdom and love of students' Helping Spirits to lead the way, I am humbled and honored to hold space for each student and the myriad of Helping Spirits that show up during this process.
