The Singing Shaman

"I have been taught by several master healers/shaman within different lineages including completing the medicine wheel at the Light Body School of Shamanic Energy Medicine (The Four Winds Society) and training to become a Pranic healer.

I believe that a shaman’s learning is never done and have been continuously studying new techniques of energy work to offer my clients. Besides these practices, submerging myself and encouraging my clients in creative/artistic expression has become a fundamental cornerstone of my/their healing work. I continue to allow my creative endeavours to flourish as a way to keep pushing myself through fears, limiting beliefs and experiences, a way to connect with you all and hopefully inspire you to express whatever beautiful commentary may be laying dormant within you.
