Shamanic healing deals with the spiritual aspect of illness. A shamanic healer works to restore an individuals lost power or ‘soul essence’ which may have occurred through emotional or physical trauma such as accidents, surgery, shock, abuse or being in a natural disaster.

It is believed that whenever we suffer an emotional or physical trauma a part of our soul flees the body in order to survive the experience. The definition of soul that I am using is essence, life force, the part of our vitality that keeps us alive and thriving.

Soul loss can result in dissociation, post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, illness, addictions or unending grief - preventing us from creating healthy relationships and the life we truly wish to live.

Classical shamanic healing techniques include soul retrieval, extraction methods, power animal retrieval, dealing with power loss and extensive work with the individual’s energy body.

The sessions are conducted in grace and beauty and involve healing song and instrument. All is conducted in relationship with the shamanic healers spirit kin and the client is imbibed with power, purpose and a true sense of themselves.

Unlike therapy you will only need to do this once or twice a year and the sessions last between  2 to 3 hours.

"I warmly invite you to work with Kate Shela, a shamanic healer and teacher of rare ability, whose roots are in the rich, dark soil of authentic spirituality and who walks in two worlds offering potent and challenging adventures in both. You are in good hands."
