Extraction is a form of shamanic healing in which the practitioner, in partnership with their extraction Power Animal, removes misplaced energy.

For the Shamanic Practitioner misplaced energies, intrusions, are neither good nor bad, but cause impbalance that can lead to illness.

The Shamanic belief is we can lose a part of our vital essence as a result of trauma we have experienced in our lives. The Trauma may be emotional or physical such as abuse, surgery, an accident, loss of a loved one or wartime experience. In such times a part of the soul essence may find it too painful to difficult to stay, so leaves as a way of protecting itself. Resulting symptoms can be a weakening of vital energy, depression, a feeling that something is missing, feeling stuck, lacking in meaning or life. When soul loss is indicated, the Shamanic Practitioner partners with their Spirit Helper, entering into the hidden realms to retrieve and heal lost soul parts willing to return to assist the person in their healing and returning to wholeness.

In this training you will: ~ ethical guidelines for shamanic healing ~ how to work in an authentic way with each client as an individual. ~ tracking and healing soul parts in non-ordinary reality ~ practice performing a soul retrieval with a partner ~ how to use words in a healing way ~ healing with Spiritual Light ~ how to support your client with soul part integration and after care..

This training is not for self-healing but for healing others. 


Spiral Circle

Shedding, shifting, shining....

A 6 month Self-Healing & Transformation Circle for 4 people meeting once a week for 6 months.

Shedding old stories, shifting the way we see things, shining our True Light. Spiral Circle attends to the spiritual aspects of chronic physical ailments, emotional wounding, anxiety and depression.

The work of the circle is founded on a series of shamanic journeys that address outgrown beliefs and deep rooted fears, bring fresh perspective to underlying causes of life imbalance, enlighten us to our unique gifts and strengths, bring us an embodied sense of connection with the natural world, offer compassionate support for ongoing, sustained healing and open our eyes to the extraordinary love and compassion of the spiritual realms. 

What is a journey? The word ‘journey’ is a shamanic term for entering into a light trance so as to travel to a spiritual realm to ask for information. This is an ancient method used by shamans the world over for thousands of years to bring healing to their people and their communities. 

In each Spiral Circle you will journey for yourself to your own personal Helping Spirits for guidance and healing.

Spiral Circle is open to experienced shamanic journeyers as well as those who would like to learn. A Learning to Journey Workshop is available to non-journeyers as a pre-requisite for the Spiral Circle. It is not necessary to have knowledge of shamanism to benefit from this circle. 

A new circle is forming between June and September 2015, so please contact me if you are interested. I will be happy to answer any questions and if this circle seems right for you, I will put your name on a waiting list.

  • We meet 1 x week for 6 months.

  • Each weekly Circle is 2hrs. @ $45 (with sliding scale)

  • Learning to Journey Workshop is 2 sessions: Each session is 2hrs. @ $45 (with sliding scale)

  • Circles meet in Placerville, CA. Payment made in person.

(6 months is a significant time commitment, therefore an occasional week missed is taken into account providing adequate notice is given.)

Spiral Circle is an adaptation of The 6 month Self-Healing Circle originated by shamanic practitioner Paula Denham and her colleague Dara Harvey.
