Integrative Shamanic Healing is at the heart of our work! It is based on the ancient tradition of shamanism, which exists in all tribal cultures around the world. With this foundation, we hold that everything is alive, has meaning and is interconnected through what we often refer to as the web of life. For those of us living in a today’s modern world, Shamanic Healing practices and techniques can support deep transformation and healing on all levels - body, mind, emotion and spirit.
