The Shamanic Healing Circle is a sacred place where therapists and healers alike can come together to learn, grow, heal and integrate traditional shamanic practices with their current practice of healing.
As a therapist I was trained in a particular clinical methodology. When I began seeing clients in my private practice, I increasingly felt more comfortable listening to my intuition in the context of the client. I engaged differently in sessions and my progress notes looked more like a stream of consciousness than a soap note. I experienced a presence and exchange with clients that I had not felt in my clinical rotations. It was a dynamic experience of working in the moment and in tandem with the underlying source of the client's emotional dis-ease. I knew I was doing some kind of energy work, but I didn't know where it was coming from or where it fit into the current therapeutic models. It is difficult to explain how one uses ancient healing when one does not "know" that is what they are doing or where it is even really coming from. It took many years before it was revealed to me through my own healing of trauma that I was actively engaging in a hybrid of traditional shamanic healing. It took me several more years to accept my own trauma healing occurred in what I now know is shamanic journeying.
The Shamanic Healing Circle is an invitation for healers of all backgrounds to learn shamanic practices through experience and to encourage you to merge it with your own intuition to develop your own hybrid of ancient healing practices.
Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Email me at li[email protected] for more information.
