Shaman Sessions

Native Americans have long known that we are connected to all of nature. Explore the purpose of the human journey through the Shamanic lens. Honoring Mother Nature and the four cardinal directions represented in medicine wheel, your Shaman guides a safe space for engaging the powers of nature, and inviting the ancestors’ ancient wisdom. Experience healing energy from the Big Sur Land and Spirit through Shamanic practices perfected over thousands of years. Release unwanted energy body imprints from your Energy Field to recover vibrancy and vitality, boost energy and immunity, while resetting your emotional, spiritual, and physical bodies to their natural state of health and wholeness. Return your mind, body, and Spirit to the pristine condition that Shamans refer to as the “Healed State” that is everyone’s birthright.


Couples' Shaman Sessions

Shamans realize the universal dance of duality, like day and night, masculine and feminine. Contrast is seen through this natural expression of the opposites, recognizing someone or something in relation to its opposite that can be oppositional or complimentary, depending on the level of awareness. Discover the Shamanic roadmap to transcend to a new level of synergistic sacred wholeness, while feeling balance and harmonizing with your partner.


Power Animal Drum Journey

At birth, a power animal volunteers to accompany us on our life journey. Each power animal has distinctive powers and characteristics to help support and guide us on the path of life. Through the Shamanic drum rhythms, embark on the same journey to meditative realms of consciousness that humans have traveled since time immemorial. Meet your Power Animal and discover the benefits of having an animal Spirit guide that is coupled to your Soul. This exploration is open to solo travelers as well as groups of up to twelve.
