Using their combined experience in energetic healing, Bradley and Doug have adapted an existing program they offer to present during the Essential Life Series!
The purpose of this weekend is to assist people to come into harmony with themselves, others and nature . . . while exploring the world around them. It's also about healing, giving back, and sharing offered from the Heart. This is an offering of shamanic tools that can be used everyday to be in right relationship.
In this weekend program we are creating an opportunity to heal and awaken the ancient feminine wisdom within ourselves.
We will explore who we are as Women by looking at what feels powerful, spiritual and sacred to us. Taking notice of ways in which this relationship has been wounded in the past, giving it voice, sharing it in circle, and allowing it to be transformed.
Being real about who we are now, and who we wish we could be…

Come join us for a weekend of experiential learning in shamanic self-care and energetic protection techniques.
We all need effective ways to help shed energetic debris from self, others and our environments, in order to maintain a good state of health and well-being.
Self -care, as we see it, is a sacred responsibility, enabling us to sustain a joyous and enthusiastic attitude while serving Mitakuye Oyasin (all our relations). This workshop is geared toward anyone in the service and/or healthcare industries, as well as anyone interested in learning about foundational shamanism.
Jessica and Kathryn bring these ancient shamanic techniques to you in the spirit of Heyoka (sacred clown) where learning takes place in a fun and holistic way. We use an indigenous model of teaching through the mind, body, spirit and emotions.
Our goal is to send you home feeling rejuvenated and inspired to serve your loved ones and your communities in a safe and sustainable way.
We look forward to meeting everyone. Mitakuye Oyasin All My Relations

Reiki is an ancient art of connecting with the grace of the divine and becoming an open channel for its light. As the most globally recognized tool for energy healing Reiki holds the facilitator and the receiver in a space of pure unconditional love and possibility, illuminating the aspects within each individual that are in need of light, and removing the blocks within our beings that keep us from knowing light.
When we are attuned to Reiki, at the moment of attunement all such obstacles are cleared from our being. When we consciously choose to walk the path of Reiki we are able to maintain this clearing with humbleness and grace.

Soul traumas are the instances within our lives, where life as we know it has changed forever. They are experiences that have shaped and impacted who we have become; fragmenting and fracturing our spirit. Some are formed in the unspeakable; violence, torture, rape, abuse; sexual or otherwise... while others are formed in the unimagined; divorce, suicide, addiction, cancer, disease…. marking us in ways that change our world, often times burying our power under shame, fear, unworthiness and blame.
Soul Trauma Training lays the foundation for unwinding the darkness that has bound our souls, allowing us to reconcile with what has impeded our path. Through this process we welcome in hope, faith and the Divine as teachers in turn releasing victim and suffering. Most importantly we begin to make medicine from our wounds, from the inside out… rather than look for things outside of ourselves.
