What is shamanism?
Shamanism is a nature based practice that includes tools and ceremonies for working with our allies of Spirit and Earth. Practices center around the purpose of supporting our learning, healing and evolution.
Techniques bring us closer to our own center and deepen our connections to our body and spirit, the cycles of nature and that which we consider sacred.
“Missing piece soul tracker Joanna has helped me, she’s helped my friends, and she can help you, too.
She is one sweet, healing, woman with a lot of magic in her medicine bag”

Why Shamanic Support?
Shamanic support helps you feel zipped back into the safety of your own skin and deeply connected with that which you consider sacred.
Shamanic support sessions help you bring your spirit-energy back into balance during times of stress and change. Sometimes this means reclaiming your forgotten or lost personal gifts that have been left behind or given away and other times the work is about transforming your connections with energy and situations you have outgrown.

“The work I do with Joanna is essential to my wellbeing.
The changes it has brought about physically, emotionally, and spiritually represent the healing artist that she is and I am even more grateful that she has introduced me to the healing artist I can be. ”
The Journey Inward
At the root of this work is the heart-centered journey. A journey that takes us inward to our heart-center as we follow the steady rhythm of a shamanic hand drum or rattle.
Once in our heart we meet with our allies of spirit and earth to ask for their help and guidance. Shamanic allies can include power animals, spirit-teachers, plant and fairy allies, ancestors, elements, weather beings, and the conscious sentience behind things such as breath, presence, love and gratitude.
Within the safe and sacred space of the heart-space journey we can work with our allies of Spirit and Earth to reclaim lost, forgotten or undernourished aspects of our own spirit and release and transform that which we are ready to let go of and create new rituals and energetic habits.
“My heart feels full and whole.
I am grateful for your caring ways as you assisted me in reclaiming my power. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

My approach to the shamanic arts
I have spent a lifetime being molded and shaped by Spirit and Earth to do this work in addition to thousands of hours of in class time with human (and spirit) teachers. In my years learning and practicing this work, I have learned to work with my shamanic allies as equal collaborators and to approach this work with heart-felt transparency, integrity clarity, and joy.
My role is to work with you with profound reverence for you, your story, your journey, your allies and all those who came before you and all those that will come after you. To help you tend to your spirit-energy in ways that empower you.
It is not my role to replace medical care, nor is it my role to read your future or tell you which direction is best for you. Rather, it is my role is to be a supportive ally to help you tend to matters of spirit, energy and soul and to support you in building grounded and honorable connections with Spirit and Earth.
