"There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way and not starting."
The Journey Home
The Journey Home is a unique blend of all services that are tailored to the individual client. We work together over a period of time to identify and heal your original wounding, clear imprints of old patterns that are no longer working in your life, build connection with your guides, and retrieve and integrate lost soul parts. This is deep work with transformative results.
Spiritual Counseling/ Integration
People who are on a spiritual path choose many different methods to connect with spirit. Some may do a silent retreat, while others may choose to try plant medicine (Ayahuasca, Peyote, or San Pedro as examples). There are sweat lodges, fasting, or taking a pilgrimage to a sacred place. Upon returning from any of these adventures, it takes time to integrate the experience. I work with clients to support them as they bring their learnings back and find ways to incorporate them into their daily lives. I also work with clients wanting to start a spiritual practice who need assistance in creating their own version of what that looks like.
Reiki is a Japanese stress reduction and relaxation technique that promotes healing. It is a process in which the practitioner lays hands (lightly or can also hover above the body) on a client, accessing life force energy to restore physical health and emotional well-being.
Yoga nidra is a guided meditation that takes you to a state between being awake and being asleep in order to expand your consciousness and tap into your body's own ability to heal itself. It helps bring restoration and balance. Yoga means union and nidra means sleep. It is a play on words in that many people are sleepwalking through their lives. Yoga nidra helps us to wake up to our consciousness and remain aware of Truth, even while in a sleep state.
A healing process for clearing imprints from the luminous body, which is the energetic system that includes chakras and the energy field that runs through and around the body. This combines elements of ceremony, energetic work, hypnotherapy, chakra clearing, and intuitive guidance.
Shamanic journeying involves going into an altered state (typically achieved through drumming and/or rattling) to travel beyond ordinary reality to receive information, meet spiritual guides, and communicate on the spirit level. In Shamanism, all guides have our best interest at heart. They are waiting for us to interact with them to receive their wisdom and guidance.
Soul Retrieval is the ancient practice of returning lost vitality to a client. The stressful events of our lives can result in a part of our soul leaving the body (some examples would be divorce, hospitalization, loss of a loved one, any kind of abuse). In psychology, we call this dissociation. It is a protective mechanism that we use when it is too painful to be in our own body. Shamanism calls this soul loss. In a Soul Retrieval, the shaman and/or client journey to find soul part/s and bring them back. Clients often feel a sense of wholeness and a return of energy and power once they have integrated their soul retrieval.
Power Animal Retrieval
A power animal retrieval is a shamanic method used to connect with helping spirits in the form of animals. As humans, and particularly in our Western culture, it is common for people to lose power, give away their power, and/or have power stolen. A power animal retrieval can help restore a feeling of authority over our own life, the ability to define life on our terms, and having the energy to create. By developing a relationship with a power animal, we ensure protection and guidance throughout our lives. Clients often report feeling a sense of well-being, decreased anxiety, more energy, and more focus once they have a relationship with their power animal.
Oracle Card Readings
In modern day Western Shamanism, Oracle Card Readings are a way to connect with spirit and find answers for a wide variety of inquiries. Clients are empowered to use their intuition and interact with the deck of cards alongside the healer. The cards reveal answers and guidance to questions posed by the client.
