A healer is someone who facilitates another person in realizing their inherent wholeness, regardless of symptoms or states of being. Being a healer means promoting healthy feelings, actions, thoughts, and beliefs in a client without compromising the same within themselves.
The root of most physical symptoms and dis-associative patterns lie in the imbalances caused by unprocessed emotional and physical traumas - from our formative experiences of this lifetime, internalized systemic and cultural beliefs, and even suffering passed down to us through bonds of blood. These blockages can become stored in the body and energetic field, displacing our Spirit and causing physical and emotional manifestations of these imbalances.
In this class you will learn to incorporate therapeutic dialoging, mindfulness, somatic approaches, body work, energetic clearing, ritual, and guided journey work to help clients explore the origins of their traumas and ultimately shift deeply held beliefs.
This class combines the science and magic of both traditional and modern healing arts modalities and focuses first on developing the framework for deepening into your own healing process while cultivating practitioner skills.
You will learn:
How to define your relationship to self and the cycles of nature
How to cultivate your compassionate witness and therapeutic dialoging skills
How to remain neutral and grounded as a practitioner
How to hold safe space
How to grow your practitioner skills such as intuition and your clairsenses (clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience etc)
How to guide clients through a healing process through use of modalities such as therapeutic dialog, mindfulness, guided journey/visualization, energy healing and therapeutic touch.
Partnered hands on time to give/receive
Safe space to process in community with other healers
An online learning platform with access to all recorded lectures, class notes, and assigned homework
***Please note: In this class you will be encouraged to forge your OWN connection to spirit, the elements, and guides. This class will explore the many aspects and facets of being a healer while exposure to many different modalities will help you find what you resonate most with as you explore you own lineages.
My teaching style is structured and comprehensive with room for all the senses to play and integrate the learnings both intellectually and viscerally.
Class size is limited to 12 to ensure quality and integration of core teachings.
The space I hold for this class is one of safety, sovereignty, and compassion. All are welcome to this inclusive and supportive space. I aspire to teach all concepts and practices though decolonization practices and a non-binary lens.

"As an aspiring intersectional feminist my goal is to assist others not only in self-healing but also the healing of our sociocultural well-being through the healing of ancestral wounds, de-centering privilege and unraveling the effects of colonization to dispell the way our bodies hold shame."
