Shamanic Guidance

 Shamanic Guidance

 

Shamanic journeys bring the subterranean perspective of the soul into the conscious realm, and in so doing, can offer a refreshing and unusual take on any issues, questions, or challenges you face.

When I journey with and for others, my task is to understand the constellation of questions before us and to connect with your energetic field at a particular moment in time.

With the help of a drumbeat, you and I will take a journey into the unseen realm of spirit, returning with guidance in the form of a stories rich in imagery.

Topics for journeys include:

Questions about life purpose, direction, or big decisions.

Navigating relationships with family, mate, classmates or co-workers, yourself and/or God.

Meaning and soulful lessons hidden within an illness, a tragic event, creative block, loss, or powerful dreams.

Creating an authentic life:  How to cultivate more joy, find right livelihood, sustain activism over the long-haul, and/or deepen your intuitive gifts and connection to Spirit.

And whatever else you might cook up…

Journeying Together

 For those who already journey for themselves, I encourage you to journey at the same time as I. For those who would like to learn how to journey, I will teach you how to do so in this session.

This said, please do not feel that you have to journey. This is an opportunity, not an obligation.

Journeying together is helpful in demonstrating how you connect to Spirit (e.g. feeling, seeing, hearing), giving emphasis to particular aspects of the message, and supporting beginners and those seeking to deepen their shamanic practice with a more vivid experience of the Spirit world.

Because the language of the soul is one of symbol, a large portion of my work lies in helping to unpack and interpret the journey in practical terms for your life.

In so doing, I draw upon years of providing professional spiritual guidance, my familiarity with the spiritual practices of the world’s religions, and an aptitude for symbolic interpretation honed over a lifetime.

Each Shamanic Guidance session includes:

30 minute check-in via FaceTime, BlueJeans, phone (if in the US), or in-person if you live in Eugene, Oregon.

Individualized instruction in shamanic journeying.

15 minute journey on your laundry list of questions.

An hour-long conversation including our retelling of the journey experience and interpreting its symbolic messages for you and your life.

An audio recording of the journey and, if indicated, an email with any resources or suggestions for further learning and practice.

Optional 30-minute follow-up conversation a week or two after the session to explore any questions or thoughts that remain after the experience.
