About Shamanism


(l’ʃɑːmən /shah-men or / ʃeɪmən / shay-men) 

noun. (especially among certain tribal peoples) a person who acts as intermediary between the natural and supernatural worlds, using magic to cure illness, foretell the future, control spiritual forces, etc. 


The term Shaman comes from the indigenous language of Eastern Siberia and refers to; ‘One who knows/sees’. Shamanism is the oldest healing practice known to man.  It organically arose all over the world, as a response to the needs of the people. Shamanism is not a religion or attached to any religion.  It is a pure connection to spirit An ancient collection of traditions based on the act of voluntarily accessing and connecting to non-ordinary states, or Spirit realms, for wisdom and healing.   

 In the Shamanic perspective, true healingspiritual healing cannot be done on a physical level and that even illnesses that manifest on this physical level have their source in Spirit. Shamanic healing addresses the root or the Spiritual problems that cause dis-ease within us. 

In ancient tribes the Shaman was a powerful social leader who was consulted on many things from spiritual leadership, prophesying the future, foretelling the weather and healing tribe members. Just as in ancient times, contemporary people consult with modern day shamanic practitioners for practical and pragmatic solutions to problems in everyday life-from personal illness, professional challenges, or family discord to ancestral issues 


Shamanic Healing

Shamanic Healing

During a Shamanic healing session the Shamanic practitioner enters an altered state of consciousness in order to journey to the spirit realms where they receive wisdom and healing for the client.  The practitioner may serve by removing energies that are inappropriately present, or by returning energies that have been lost. This includes Soul Retrieval to accomplish healing via the return of lost parts of the soul.

Shamanic practitioners work with both their own and their clients’  guides, power animals, teachers and ancestors who are able to diagnose the cause (since they are Spirit, they can easily see all that is happening on the Spiritual level) of an illness, give insight, and then help to facilitate the required treatment for healing.  After the journeying is complete energy work is then performed in order to integrate the effects of the journey, locate and release blockages, and increase the body’s ability to heal. The Shamanic Practitioner will use their sacred tools from their Medicine Bag in this healing session. Their tools may include a drum, rattles, incense, sage, crystals, stones and feathers; anything that embodies the power of Spirit for them in their work. In my sessions I encourage the client to journey as well and the discussion of these two experiences afterwards brings about a deeper healing and a deeper connection for the client.

In my own experience both as a practitioner and a client on my own journey I have found Shamanic Healing to be a deeply profound and beautiful healing experience with long lasting effects. To experience the connection with your own inner world, guides and ancestors can be life changing and life affirming.

Shamanic Healing Distance

Distance Shamanic Healing Sessions

Shamanic Healing is not limited by time and space and is just as effective in person and as a distance healing session. The session can be arranged on Zoom or if that’s not an option a time can be booked and we can connect remotely for the session. 

Soul Retrieval

Soul Loss and Soul Retrieval

“It is time for all to collect back our lost pieces and remember why we were born into this world. Then, we are truly healed and can live our lives in harmony and help others to do the same” 

Sandra Ingerman 

Soul loss occurs when a person undergoes a traumatic event in their lives, such as the loss of loved ones, accident or injury, separation, incest, abuse, miscarriage, abortion, combat stress, addiction or any event that the person is shocked or hurt by. Soul loss can be caused by whatever a person experiences as traumatic, even if another person would not experience it in the same way. It is all relative to the individual. The Soul knows how to protect itself and does so by separating a part of itself and taking it to a place of non ordinary reality where it can be safe until it is time to return. It does this in order to survive the experience by escaping the full impact of the pain. Some of the symptoms of soul loss are feeling spaced out, numb, depressed, deadened, addictions and chronic illness. Soul loss blocks us from feeling connected to ourselves, to others and to the earth.  

In order to retrieve any Soul Parts the Shamanic Practitioner must be initiated and experienced as their work requires them to leave everyday consciousness and venture into the Spirit World; The Shamanic State of Consciousness and navigate it skilfully. Soul retrieval is a Sacred and powerful Ceremony. Before I journey for a client there is always a consultation beforehand, the space and participants are prepared creating a space of safety and then a Shamanic Journey is taken. If there are Soul parts ready to return they are healed and integrated back into the client after the journey. The journey is then followed by a discussion as this is all part of the healing process. In my experience the client also has an experience or a journey and the discussion of the two experiences for me has always brought deeper healing and a deeper connection for the client. The feeling and knowledge of having been part of the experience can be extremely beneficial for the client to have that awareness that they are part of the process and it isn’t just something happening to them.  Time for integration and transmutation is always provided after and the client relaxes as I facilitate a Sound Bath with the Shamanic Drum, Rattles and Gongs for further integration and to support the work that has taken place in the session. 

House and Premises Clearance

Energetic House and Premises Clearing

Buildings and land take on the energetic imprint of all the experiences that have happened within them or around them. Strong emotions, like anger, fear and any past traumatic events can be stuck within the four walls of the buildings or the boundaries of the land. The presence of Geopathic stress lines and Ley lines can also have be present creating energies of unease or restlessness. These energies can have a detrimental effect on us; sometimes in a subtle way but at other times they can manifest in a more serious and very powerful way. They can affect our health, our sleep, our relationships and even our own behaviour. And with business premises it can actually make a real difference to the success of your business. Everything can become stagnant and needs to flow again.  

It is very important for us to have the energy cleared in our house from time to time. This is especially important if we have moved into a new house or premises in order to clear the old occupiers’ energy and to make the space ours. An Energy Clearance Ceremony can make a huge difference to your space and it is something I highly recommend. During the ceremony I connect with the spirits of the building and land who show me the previous occupants and events, and show me where heavy energy is stuck and needs to be released. In my work I have also cleared trapped spirits, closed down portals that were allowing energies and spirits in that were having a detrimental effect on the family, and imprints of previous owners that were blocking the flow in a certain area of the building.  I am guided how to release and close down any openings in the energetic field safely allowing the natural flow of energy and love to come through and to create balance between the space and the current occupiers. Many find that the clearance of the energies in their living or working space ripples out into their own lives and can have long and far reaching effects.
