Shamanic Healing

Shamanic healing refers to techniques traditionally practiced by medicine men and women of indigenous cultures. Through studying these cultures, many similarities were found throughout the world; the core of the practices.  Modern day healers who work with these techniques are referred to as having studied Core Shamanism.  The essential nature of it is the same that has been done for thousands of years for healing and spiritual guidance.  This is not religious in nature and is practiced by people of many different faiths and beliefs.

Shamans are trained to enter a trance or meditative-like stage to bring about knowledge and healing to themselves or others; this can be done in person or remotely.  The sessions unique for each person and each experience is not like another.  For many this work is profoundly healing and comforting.

While many different techniques may be required, during a session the Shamanic practitioner utilizes those that are most fundamental at that time, working with guidance not to overload or overwhelm the recipient.  The assimilation typically is gentle and comforting.

Some of the techniques used by shamans are included below with approximate times needed for each session.  Other techniques or usages may be needed, please inquire if you have specific questions.


Power Animal Retrieval

45- 60 minutes

In Shamanism, every being carries different powers.  Every person has power animals that lend support through different stages of life, sometimes for brief periods, sometimes for an entire life.  The methods of support are different, depending on the animal(s).  Typically the qualities a specific animal would have while alive in nature gives us indications of what powers may be harnessed from this energy.  Power Animal Retrievals are done to give support and lend traits or qualities to a person for almost any facet of life.


60 minutes

Extraction works with misplaced energy, that may be negatively affecting your quality of life or causing dis-ease.  This misplaced energy may be due to certain emotional states, “taking on” other’s thoughts or feelings, or residual from an injury or trauma.  During this session, the misplaced energy is removed, leaving the recipient feeling lighter, cleaner and more vibrant.

Soul Retrieval

90-120 minutes

Shamans believe that part of the soul or spirit is able to freely leave the body.  This may be done while dreaming or to protect itself during times of trauma or imbalance, emotional or physical.  It may also occur during close relationships where one may literally give of themselves to another.  Often this essence does not return on it’s own, leaving the person feeling like part of them is gone or changed.  During this work, the practitioner retrieves these essences that are ready and needed to come back at that time.  This is extremely powerful work, leaving the recipient feeling more whole, balanced, invigorated and is a foundation of the healing process.  Many experience newfound joy, confidence and clarity.

After a soul retrieval it is important to celebrate these essences that have returned.  Give thanks and allow them to fully integrate, once again, into your being.

Journey for Answers/Guidance

60-90 minutes

A journey for answers or guidance may be helpful and is done on an individual basis.  Working with higher guidance can often help gain clarity or insight.

Please note:  All times are approximate, all sessions are as individual as the recipient and may need more than the alloted time.
