“We all desire to be happy, fulfilled and free. We all wish to love.”

Rachel Mann, PhD  offers shamanic energy medicine sessions to clients seeking healing from trauma, wishing to break through blocks to creativity and love, and create greater happiness and abundance in their lives through  Her methods are adapted from the indigenous peoples of the Andes and Amazon and incorporate understandings from depth psychotherapy and interdisciplinary perspectives on trauma, resilience and healing.

Rachel also founded The Great Medicine Wheel of the New Earth School of Mother Earth Mysticism to provide professional training and spiritual teachings influenced by the mystical wisdom traditions of Native American spirituality and Buddhism, and western shamanism,.  You may choose one or all three areas of study:

  • The 4 Lodges of the Great Medicine Wheel of the New Earth: teachings and initiations into a deep and rich spiritual system using the ancient map of the medicine wheel.  In 4 Lodges, you build a mesa, or medicine bundle, and learn how to use sacred dance, song, drumming, ceremonies of fire and water, and journey in service of your personal and collective healing on every level–body, mind, soul, and spirit.
  • Mother Earth Mysticism: Walk the Path of Love of Shamanism:  In this 4 month class series offered both in person and online, you will journey in the Domains of the Upper World with the help of the Plant and Stone People, Animals, Whales, Dolphins, Ancestors, and Mountains to connect more deeply with your Wise Soul and Expansive Spirit.  In the end, you will have a sweet and powerful prayer bundle and a ceremonial mesa altar which can be used for personal healing and the healing of others, including Mother Earth.
  • Shamanic Energy Medicine Program: professional training for anyone interested in becoming a shamanic healer and/or adding to their toolkit for client work in related fields, including psychology, somatics, EMDR, and other forms of energetic medicine.

Whether you want to heal trauma, call more abundance into your life, create the work of your heart, or simply connect more deeply into the gravity of love of Mother Earth and the Spirit of All, Rachel brings intimacy, caring and transformation to each and every student and client.

“At our very core, we desire to live courageously from our hearts.

But the confused beliefs and traumas from our own past and that of our ancestors may hold us back.

Shamanic energy healing and ceremony cleans out the heavy burdens from these imbalances in our body, mind and emotions.

We are then imprinted at the very center of our Deep Self with the Soul Parts and Yet-to-be Manifested Potential which has always been within us and our ancestors.

Once this is done, we begin to realize our highest dreams to live with love and freedom.”

I am so grateful for the honor of working with you, my clients and students. Your courage and wish to change your lives and connect more deeply is inspiring. Through you, my own connection to the Spirit of Earth and Sky, of the Invisible Realms and to all sentient beings  is strengthened. Through you, I am brought over and over again back into the vast territory of the heart and am reminded to love myself as I love you.   

–Warm regards, Rachel
