“Shamanism is an ancient system for healing, well-being, guidance and growth using human abilities of body,mind and spirit. Today practicing shamans work in culturally specific indigenous systems as well as in the non-denominational core shamanic practices and methods of contemporary life. As a form of spiritual practice core shamanism connects us to a multi-dimensional network of spiritual support to assist with the many conditions, questions and problems of human life.
I am a Foundation for Shamanic Studies Faculty Member, and for the past 20 years I’ve created and taught original theme-based shamanic workshops. I also give presentations on contemporary core shamanic practice sponsored by organizations such as the Los Angeles Jung Institute, the Yo San University of Oriental Medicine and the San Fernando Valley Interfaith Council. Additionally, I have participated in special conferences and educational programs at U.C.L.A., the Esalen Institute Work Scholars Program, Churches of Religious Science and Unitarian congregations as well as The Mensa Society. I work with private clients and have regular referrals from psychotherapists, certified acupuncturists, chiropractors, ministers and other health care providers for shamanic counseling, training and healing services.”
