Who are the plants that your/our ancestors most deeply connected with? What healthy ancestral lineages will we learn with and from about the relationships they shared? How will these knowings foster our connection to our current environment? What stories will unfold in our own lives as we step into this container? For more information, please send me an email and we can have a conversation, as this exploration and what it holds continues to unfold.
My own lineage is Eastern European (Polish, Czech, Germanic peoples.)
The energetic exchange for this co-created space is $960. All are welcome!
~~~~~~~~~ Shamanism is an ancient method of experiencing information we are unable to perceive in ordinary reality. This practice is how indigenous peoples of many cultures discovered the healing properties of the plants - through direct connection with the spirits of the plants.
Below are some techniques we might engage to support healing during a shamanic session. Sessions are approximately two hours in length.
Plant Spirit Medicine Connection with a plant ally to support your healing journey.
Power Animal retrieval Connection with an animal guide to support your innate inner knowing. Practices to maintain this connection in day to day life will be gleaned during your session.
Extraction healing Removal of energetic intrusions which may be causing illness or undesirable mental thoughts.
Soul retrieval Return of soul parts which may have been lost due to the trauma of a car accident, shock, abuse, loss of a loved one, labor and delivery, or simply through day to day Life.
I suggest meeting at three week intervals to support integration of soul work you are engaged in. This allows time in your daily life to experience change, while having space set aside to process and deepen your synthesis in a healing environment.
