I'm interested in becoming a Reiki master. I'm also interested learning more about shamanism, and the medicine wheel.
An open mind, and a willing spirit eager to learn new things.
Hello, I am currently one of Michelle's shamanic practitioner students, and met Maureen at the Jan drum healing circle. I'm also a pranic healer, and practice healing at a free clinic in Hillsboro, OR.

Raven House Healing Center
A center for Shamanic Studies, Reiki, Medicine Wheel Teachings and healing in Ceremony.
Ancient Solutions for a Modern World.
I am a spiritual being having a human experience. The more I ponder on this, the more I become connected to the universal energy of all that was and will be. I have come to realize that we are in a mere speck of time. I have come to realize nothing matters. I am connected to the universe from which I evolved in every sense. Not only am I conscience of the universe but also to all its creation. These are my relations. The stone people, green ones, crawlers, wingeds, to quasars and black holes. The vibrational energy, the mechanics of the universe, the quantum physics that it all gives off is in my bag of bones. Everything else is an illusion. Humanity may end up destroying itself but our Earth Mother is in a constant rebirth and will heal herself no matter what we do. Question is, how long will we last. The ancients saw this vibrational energy and lived in harmony with creation. They understood this reality and respected it. Westerners today have evolved into a society driven by greed and materialism. We are subject to the do's and don'ts that have been distorted over time by all cultures and religions. We have lost the original instruction and have become a disconnected, dysfunctional society. This is why there is so much addiction, depression, and illness we experience today. We have lost our center. The driving force of life. Our heart light. The god within.
It is our time that we reclaim our heart light and reconnect to our center.
Medicine Wheel Studies
Learn the teachings of the ancient medicine wheel from Honorary Cowlitz Chief Roy I. Wilson. Each ongoing meeting will focus on a point of the wheel to better understand your human and spiritual self. The medicine wheel is the oldest form of knowledge and Earth based spirituality known on the planet. It has a history and presence all over the globe that goes back forty thousand years and is still practiced and growing in a time of need in today's world. It is interesting to note that you will find all religions, Western and Eastern in these teachings. In these teachings you will find your own way by learning to work with your spirit guides and animal helpers. A daily practice, you will find your balance and life force energy center to help guide you to a more focused way of life..
Our community currently has clans learning the medicine wheel all over Washington State and around the US and Internationally.
This meetup is offered by donation of what you feel in your heart for an energy exchange. We use the funds for rent of the facility, gas,Grandfather Roy's travel, time and those in need.

The Path To Direct Revelation
Shamanism is the practice of accessing the spirit worlds through direct revelation in order to do the healing work or doctoring in the community. With the use of plant, spirit, and animal guides, a shaman works with the spirit world and dimensions. These are ancient practices that have been in all cultures of the planet since man started to understand the cosmos and the mechanics of the universe.This wisdom is currently experiencing renewed worldwide interest and shamanic practitioners* are now working globally with the growing needs of a modern world. The western medicine world is coming to realize that to be spiritually out of balance you can cause many illnesses to yourself and those around you.
*please note practitioners are not shamans
