This page is dedicated to the indigenous healers of the world. It is with deep gratitude that I particulary wish to thank Charlie Conatser of Lubbock, Texas, Thrangu Rinpoche of Tibet, and Kunta/Boo and G’ao of the Ju’hoansi Kalahari for all that they have taught me.
**Please note that as of November 2019, I no longer offer support to anyone attempting to self-medicate mental conditions with hallucinogens. People trying to “cure” mental conditions with psychoactive substances MUST either already be under, or willing to accept, psychiatric supervision by a qualified MD.
Shamanism is a journey to and dialogue with the “other world.” The “other world” is the world of dreams, visions, images, knowings, psychic and mediumistic abilities. It’s an old world, one we are innately connected to, and yet it’s always startling and fresh. It’s a world our linear culture generally tries to deny or repress.
Indigenous and shamanic healing have, like so many other things, often been co-opted and commercialized in our culture into exotic “experiences” that pretend to offer escape from ordinary reality, often using drugs to do so. But the deeper truth is, some people are just born “knowing” things others don’t know. Some people are born with “second sight” or “vision” or the ability to speak with the dead or know the future of another. Or the ability to heal others, or make music that influences transcendent states, or many other things.
There are many kinds of shamanism, types of shamans and gifts that shamans possess. In my case, I am able to bring understanding and healing through my hands, to use the drum to take others on a journey, and to help clients navigate the world of their inner selves through opening dialogues with parts of themselves that have been lost or are in hiding. Some shamans are good at removing negative energies or bad spells. Some are good at speaking with the dead or helping others cross over after physical death. Every healer has their flavor of healing and all of us are different.
I am also trained in a form of energy medicine that utilizes gentle energetic touch on the body and helps the nervous system find replenishment and healing.
