Shamanic Energy Healing and Empowerment
The role of the shaman, in indigenous societies, is to "step outside", to journey into other dimensions, and return ... in service to the community. Shamanic work involves connecting with the forces of nature (You may call these spirits, angels, helpers, or by other words that resonate with you), and calling on them for help. For neolithic peoples this may have been information about where game could be found, or rain for the crops. For us today it is likely to be help in terms of problems we face, or aspirations we want to succeed with.
And success depends on removing obstacles, and on taking positive steps toward our objective.
So we might say there are two steps: healing and empowerment.
Release from patterns and energetic blocks
Do you continually find yourself being hindered by the same obstacles? Are you still held back by patterns you have long since understood and "worked on"? Do you repeatedly get "triggered" by now-familiar behaviors of your friends or loved ones?
Consider this: There's "shadow material", and there's also "deep shadow", that is, parts and patterns of you that evade many kinds of investigation, therapy, and deep work, because they are lodged not just in your psyche, but in your subtle or luminous body. The ancient techniques of the shamans are about loosening and releasing these deepest blocks. Our intent is to assist you in your own process, by helping you to call in those forces of Nature, and to direct them toward the imprints in your energetic field that are no longer serving you.
The Illumination Process
The Illumination process is the core of our energetic healing work. Here is how we understand it: As a result of disappointing, painful or traumatic experience we can carry, at a very deep level in our being, patterns of perception, belief, and behavior which are rooted not in the present, but in those impressions or wounds of the past. These are carried at a very deep level of the body. You may have heard terms like "energetic body", and "emotional body". At this subtle level there is a constant flow of energy, and normally our chakras, and the Luminous Energy Field that surrounds our bodies are able to release or heal such imprints, but occasionally that healing is interrupted. Heavy energy then collects around those invisible wounds. Over time, if the wound is not healed a kind of energetic sludge builds up. Our role in your healing is to help you to release that heavy energy, those old imprints and ways of seeing and acting that are no longer serving you.

In the long journey of the soul, in this present world of light and dark, we have undergone traumas or extended periods of psychological or physical suffering, during which some aspect of our own being is cut off. In a sense it flees. This can leave us effectively disabled. We may have a sense that "something is missing", or we may recall that "ever since that time, I have not been quite the same." Perhaps "soul-part retrieval" would be a more accurate term for the process that is needed. This retrieval process takes the form of shamanic journeying, to recover that "lost", or separated soul part, as well as the information you need to re-integrate it. And just as importantly, it involves your attention and will in discovering what you can do to make that part of yourself welcome again.
Soul retrieval helps to heal old, sometimes very, very old, wounds. And to regain part of who we truly are. It both heals and empowers.
Both Jeffrey and Cielle do private Soul Retrieval work with clients. Before doing this work we recommend one or more Illumination Processes. (See above). Soul Retrieval sessions last 2.5 to 3 hours. Our fee is on a sliding scale, $20-50 per hour. We trust you will chose the place on the scale that works best for you and honors our work.
Personal Mythic work
Sometimes, we might decide that for your fastest healing some mythic, or ceremonial, work is needed. We might help you with a symbolic representation of the issue that you are working on and help you gather insights about how to best facilitate the shifts you are needing. We might lead you in a guided meditation or help you to dialog with an image, archetype or more.
Working at a Distance
All of these processes are effective at a distance. The energetic body underlies and communicates with our physical bodies -- but it is not itself limited in space. We routinely work with clients by telephone or skype.
Energetic Transmissions -- The Munay-Ki
We all have our dreams and aspirations. What is it that we might become? How can I know and live my purpose here? In this we are already stepping beyond healing what may be wrong, or may be limiting us. When we have even a faint feeling that there can be more, we are acknowledging our unrealized potential. And we are feeling the whisper of our own greatness, however soft that whisper may be.
The Munay-Ki rites are energetic transmissions. Each of the nine transmissions activates in us an aspect of our innate-as-human capacity; it empowers us to step forward into who we are becoming. These rites have been given to us by a lineage of seers and healers who have preserved them for millenia, and who believe that today it is imperative that mankind move forward into these potentials for the sake of the planet. They are given without charge.
Stepping Into Freedom
When we commit to taking the steps of healing and empowerment that will open the way to living in our destiny, we step into freedom. The healing steps help us to extricate from the maze of sticky patterns that have often entangled us. As we get free from those old ways that have ceased to be useful, we have new opportunities: we can also take steps that activate our freedom to live in a new way, as beings of light, empowered to fulfill the soul's destiny and meet the needs of a new era for the planet.
