Shamanism and Medicine Women
Shamanism is an ancient form of spiritual healing found in indigenous cultures all over the world dating back to approximately thirty thousand years ago. Traditionally, it is a path and a way of life where one connects with nature and all of creation, and both lives and works from this place.
The word shaman originates from the Tungus tribe in Siberia and is often translated to mean the “one who sees in the dark.” The implication here is that hidden realities exist, in which the shaman, voluntarily moves into an altered state of consciousness and acts as an intermediary between these worlds for the purposes of healing.
Medicine Women work with Shamans and their spiritual family who guides them during the healing session to help remove blocks, plant gifts, and help restore balance within the individual. The medicine women of South America carry the healing presence of their lineage and honor their ancestry through all their work in the world.
Shamanic healing is a natural way of healing imbalances and removing blockages in the physical and energetic systems of the body. As energy is freed up, individuals begins to experience more energy flow in the body and the release of old patterning.
Through the use of natural healing tools, individuals are guided by the life force energy that naturally occurs within every individual to facilitate the healing process of the body and create a healthy balanced system.
Natural healing tools include:
- Hands-on placement
- Power Animals
- Spiritual Teachers and Guides
Individual Healing Sessions
A Shamanic healing treatment plan includes:
I. The first session: assessment and consultation.
II. The second session: healing treatment.
After these two initial sessions, monthly sessions are recommended for the sustainment of change and continual growth. Home practices are recommended.
