Full Moon Fire.jpg

Fire allows for rapid transformation. It provides the avenue to honor your lessons and old belief structures by turning them over to Spirit, thus enabling you to heal deeply at the level of the soul without having to experience them.

Fire ceremony, one of the core rituals in many medicine traditions, is typically held around the full or new moon of each month, when the veils between the worlds are the thinnest.

Before entering the fire circle, we will create an offering out of burnable materials, typically a small stick. This “spirit arrow” can represent something that needs to be honored in order for you to let go of it. The offering serves to focus one’s attention in active meditation.

Fire ceremony allows us to source from our soul and to re-remember how we have sat around sacred fires throughout time. Whenever you feel blocked, or are working on what you want to dream into your life, fire is an incredible tool to help you change and shift.

Shamanic Reiki is an evolving, esoteric art inviting us to work in increasingly dynamic ways with universal life force energy. These exclusive, intensive training's bring together two powerful healing methods--shamanism and Reiki. Shamanism teaches us to tap the power, wisdom and energy of the spiritual realms and of nature, to create opportunities out of personal and global crises and Reiki provides a paradigm for focusing nature's spiritual energy to heal ourselves.

Class Levels 1-4  $300 per class (4 class series $1000)



Many people feel drawn to the healing professions, but not all are comfortable with the Western medical approach. Holistic health practitioners offer an increasingly respected and centuries-old alternative that emphasizes total wellness of mind, body, emotions and spirit. They treat people not as collections of parts and diseases, but as whole individuals.


This is an exciting time to pursue a holistic health education. Many ancient healing traditions, such as acupuncture, Ayurveda and herbal medicine, are enjoying renewed popularity. Newer healing modalities that were once dismissed are now being researched and respected. People are taking responsibility for their personal wellness and looking to trained professionals to help them on their path.
