Access Your Guides & Heal - Now! A 1-Day Shamanic Journeying Intensive

This workshop will be a good fit for you if:

- You're a bit skeptical, but you've had wisdom come to you in dreams and sudden flashes, and you'd like a way to access it more regularly. 

- You believe you have guides, but you've never known how to meet with them and learn from them.

- You don't even really care about "guides," but you just want a powerful, effective way to clear out childhood trauma, heal from a breakup or other loss, make a big decision in your life, and feel clearer and more whole.

- You feel "stuck" in some big way in your life, and you're ready to go outside your comfort zone and try something new in order to bring about a big shift.

- You're able to perceive non-physical reality, but you sometimes have trouble trusting your perceptions, or separating out your true allies from those who don't have your best interests at heart.

My whole life changed when I learned to access the wisdom and power of my own inner guidance. In this one day, highly experiential class, I'll help you get to know your guides and how to work with them. Once you know how to work with the tool of the shamanic journey, there is almost no limit to the kinds of deep, soul-level changes you can create - including healing old trauma, retrieving lost soul parts, clearing other people and forces out of your energy field, gaining clarity about your life's mission and purpose, and much more.

About the shamanic journey

The shamanic journey is a time-tested, simple yet amazingly profound tool... that has been practiced in one form or another for at least 50,000 years! (In other words, this isn't "new age." It's as old as humanity itself. But the techniques I teach, developed by anthropologist Michael Harner, are specifically adapted to be empowering and accessible for people in our contemporary U.S. culture.)

Why now?

Since ancient times, people have sought ways to productively interact with non-physical reality - and these days, we need these tools as much if not more than ever before. (The amount of violence, depression, anxiety and addiction around us and inside of us are proof of that.) The journeying method I teach, core shamanism, is not drawn from any single tradition; rather, it is based on the core understandings and practices of almost every tradition. Therefore, no matter where in the world our ancestors came from, we all have an equal right to access this powerful tool.

In this small, intimate group, you'll be supported by like-minded people (amazing people come to my classes - check out the reviews from previous meetups!) as you learn to connect with wise, compassionate, benevolent inner teachers.  We'll discuss and then experience how these guides can help you heal old wounds, restore your own energetic integrity, reach much deeper understanding about the relationships and circumstances in your life – and much more. You’ll also learn why not all forms of journeying are safe, and how to avoid those forms that are not.

If you’re someone who has a difficult time accessing non-physical perceptions, the shamanic journey can provide you with a gentle, safe, step-by-step process for deepening your awareness and accessing other realms. If, on the other hand, you’re someone who is already highly energetically sensitive and/or psychic, the shamanic journey can help you learn to navigate your abilities with more safety, ease and comfort, and avoid getting “flooded” or overwhelmed.

This class is also the prerequisite for my more advanced class on Soul Retrieval and Soul Clearing, which I will be offering the following weekend. Register for both days if you are ready for major transformation and healing!

The shamanic journey and other shamanic practices have been life-changing for me, and for many of my students and clients. I love to teach this work.

A note about fees:

I believe in keeping this work financially accessible. My fee for this full-day intensive is a very low $95.00. Other venues in the Bay Area and beyond charge much more, but I want you to be able to access these amazing tools! So, provided that I have a minimum of five full-fee attendees, I will offer partial and even full scholarships based on need. If you can pay full fee, please do; if you can’t, let me know what you can afford and I’ll do my best to work it out with you.

If you'd like to know more about me, feel free to check out my website at  I'm the author of seven books, most recently Soul on Earth: A Guide to Living & Loving Your Human Life (available on Amazon and of course also from me directly), and I have an active private healing and creative mentorship practice.

Hope to see you at the workshop! Many blessings,
