I live my passion on the edge of Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. Along with my husband I co-created Northern Edge Algonquin Retreat Centre, with the mission of providing experiences in nature that enable us to rediscover ourselves, empower each other and heal our connection to the Earth.
As a graduate of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies 3 year program and Shamanic Teacher Training with Sandra Ingerman, I have evolved my own Shamanic practice through facilitating Basic and Two Year Advanced Shamanism programs. I have recently stepped into a wider audience, teaching and facilitating through our new media centre and circle website.
A strong intention I hold is to grow Shamanic Community while strengthening the power of the Circle. Shamanism Canada has been developed to foster Shamanic leaders in our communities. As a part of my service to Spirit I write a monthly newsletter to educate and inspire those who have an interest in evolving their Shamanic practice.
My spirit is fully alive when leading Sacred Journeys by canoe into the heart of Algonquin Park. I thrive on providing experiences that help us see our own reflection of beauty within nature’s mirror. My passion presently is to more fully integrate my love of singing, dancing, yoga, art, and creating music with my shamanic practice and teaching.
We have hosted Medicine People from all over the world, being introduced to the many ways Medicine is shared. Answering Spirit’s call, I have traveled to many places in the world gathering wisdom while connecting with indigenous healers as a means of rekindling the indigenous spirit within myself.
Following the footsteps of the ancestors I have traveled to Hungary, Scotland, Greenland, Germany, and the Ecuadorian Andes and Amazon. I have led ceremony on behalf of the ancestors on many of these journeys. As I connect to my sacred roots listening to the voices of the ancestors, I honour my connection to the web of life.
As a living prayer, I am both the weaver and the web and invite others to join me in re-igniting and connecting the sacred flame within. As global citizens we are all one tribe indigenous to the earth. Let us find ourselves together in one circle of deep peace dancing barefoot upon our Earth Mother.
I offer my work in service to Spirit on behalf of the children, grand children, great grandchildren and our Earth Mother.
