Shamanism will illuminate your path and help you embrace the evolving journey of your life.

Shamanism is an ancient universal spiritual practice based on the act of voluntarily accessing and connecting to non-ordinary states — or spirit realms — for wisdom and healing. Shaman means “spiritual healer” or “one who sees in the dark.” They teach that everything is spirited; that all things are interconnected and alive, including (but certainly not limited to) the Earth itself, the stars in the sky, and even the wind in the air.

Shamanism is a path of opening the heart, creating a doorway that leads us to traveling into hidden natural realms. Shamanic healing allows for a full immersion into the natural world assisting in the harmonious balance of humankind, nature, and spirit.

“Susan and I started working together over a year ago and it was the best decision I ever made for my spiritual journey, as well as personal and professional life. I knew I need MORE. More happiness, more spiritual guidance, more understanding of myself, more purpose etc. The knowledge and insights I have gained through working with Susan and walking this Shamanic Path have had a profound impact of my life: Better Work life balance and the ability to disconnect; The knowing that there is a lot more to life than what meets the eye; I’ve become a better mom for my son and a better friend to everyone around me; I have gained a deeper understanding of myself and my reactions to situations through shadow work. Thank you Susan for everything you do for your clients and students every single day!”

Although Shamanism is an ancient practice, it is relevant today for those seeking ways to live a life filled with harmony and good health, by returning to balance and peace. The process of shamanic healing is experiential in nature, particularly for the shamanic practitioner. I will ‘travel’ via drumbeat into hidden spiritual worlds to “see in the dark” with my heart to find your power animals or lost parts of you that left and have stayed away.

As a Shamanic practitioner, I am first and foremost, a humble student. Studying at Ehama Institute in New Mexico, I learned my medicine name Red Tail Woman and it was witnessed within my tribe. I continue to deepen my learning through the grace of my guides and with the Medicine Circle. Shamanism has awakened my sovereign path, of which I am forever grateful.

Power Animal Retrieval with The Coaching Room

Power Animal Retrievals

Loss of power in our lives – whether it’s been taken from us or we’ve given it away – can disrupt our innate sense of groundedness and safety. Connecting with your power animal can give you a stronger awareness of the spirit world and help you to resist mental and physical illness, heal injuries, and reduce the likelihood of future illness and trauma. It is a relationship of reciprocity and respect that will center you, give you a greater sense of self-confidence and wellbeing, and help you to succeed in achieving your goals.

Extractions

When we feel imbalance, discomfort, or even illness, it can be due to energy that has been misplaced in the energy body, tucked away somewhere it doesn’t belong. In a shamanic extraction, I work with my spirit guides to scan the energy body to find and remove any energy that is weighing you down and affecting your spiritual and physical health.

The removal of intrusive energy leaves a void which I then refill with healing energy, restoring your life-giving power. Once this power is restored, the ‘space’ in the energy body will be protected.

Soul Retrieval with The Coaching Room

Soul Retrievals

Most everyone suffers from some sense of incompleteness and emptiness. Have you ever sensed that a part of yourself is missing, cutting you off from a deep connection with your surroundings and yourself? There comes a time in everyone’s life when that aspect of ‘you’ chooses to be healed.

Soul Retrievals are a profound and evocative shamanic tool used to restore souls that have been lost due to spiritual challenges that cause emotional and physical disease. They are a way to heal, a way to recover from trauma and suffering and regain your spiritual essence, your soul.

My Journey with Shamanism

Read about my journey with shamanism and how I learned my medicine name.

“I originally came to see Susan because I had been called subconsciously to dive deeper into Shamanism. I thought it was going to be some super cool path into a different realm… but came to the realization that that different realm was my inner wounds begging to be healed. Susan has helped me to heal not only my present wounds but also past wounds I had no idea needed healing. A weight I didn’t know I was carrying has been lifted and I have been walking lighter ever since. I still continue to learn from Susan on so many levels and the gratitude I have for her is immeasurable.”
