Shamanic Session with Sony


We sit sipping tea as we discuss what is not working for you that you would like to shift. Then we move into a  heart centred healing ceremony.

A shamanic session includes a consultation, a shamanic journey of healing and divination, and a closing with honour and gratitude. The experience is a ceremony of love, compassion, and beautiful medicine for the soul. There may be drumming, rattling, music, moving, singing, being quiet, laughing, crying and everything in between. It is a soul experience and blessings for the heart. 

Shamanic work supports and complements psychotherapy or other modalities. It does not replace them! 

It's also good to realize that nobody can live your life for you, which is such a beautiful, blessed thing! your journey in this life may be easy or tough. Your compassionate guides and ancestors cannot alter your soul's destiny, but they can guide you and help you heal old wounds, so the way forward is clearer. 



A shamanic session affects each individual differently. Generally, people report feeling stronger, lighter, clearer and more grounded. Most feel a deep sense of calm following the session, and they sense a shift has occurred. Typically, the effects of the healing continue weeks past the session. I recommend at least one follow-up session to ground the work and support you on your new path. 

A shamanic healing session may involve:

  • Soul Retrieval:  


It is believed that when someone suffers an emotional or physical difficulty, or trauma,  part of the soul, or life essence, detaches from the body in order to survive the experience. It is a wonderful defence mechanism when it happens.  Yet, unless this essence is merged back with the body, the soul part disassociates, and we begin to feel the loss of this life essence. We may get depressed, ill, tired, or feel lost. We don't quite feel like ourselves.

In psychology we call this disassociation. But in psychology we don’t talk about what disassociates, what qualities of the person have left, or where that part had gone. In shamanism, we understand that a part of the soul leaves the body and goes to a territory shamans call non-ordinary reality. There the essence part gets stuck until someone intervenes in the spiritual realms and facilitates its return.

It has always been the role of the shaman to go into an altered state of consciousness to track the departed soul part and facilitate its return.

  • power animal retrieval

Shamanic cultures believe that each one of us was born with a spiritual helper, also known as a power animal. This spiritual guide provide you with an empowering energy of protection, companionship and guidance. 


  • ancestral healing

The science of epi-genetics and many aboriginal cultures know that we are but one link in a long chain of previous generations. Through this genetic and energetic connection,  we are deeply affected by our ancestors' patterns and experiences. Any unresolved history of suffering greatly impacts the living today. When you heal your ancestral imprints, you set yourself  free to manifest your unique soul's dreams.   

other healing experiences:

  • Extraction of misplaced energy
  • Death and Dying consultation and preparation
  • Divination work
  • Communication with the departed to find comfort and  healing
  • And more... depending on what you need.
