I did it 10 years ago when I left my long and successful academic career to become a healer and spiritual teacher of the Great Medicine Wheel of the New Earth. This groundbreaking decision arose out of a long-held feeling that I needed to be a leader in the expanding movement in the world towards personal and planetary awakening. As a result of my own long journey from healing trauma and unwinding old habits of self-doubt and fear, I know how challenging it can seem to unbind ourselves from unhealthy patterns and to step into a life of emboldened transformation.
Maybe you, too, feel the same resistance and fear. Or maybe you just feel there is something missing or yet to be done with your life….
Or you are stuck in dead-end, unfulfilling work or relationships…
Or you are going through a divorce, have been fired or laid off from your job, have had a near-death experience, or have developed an illness that threatens your very life or at least the quality of your life…
Yet….you feel like you have a greater mission or purpose in life, and are looking for help in manifesting your creative gifts, passionate interests, and desire to help the world…
Or you just have been searching for a long time for the meaning of life….You want to know more, understand more, feel more, and be more….
Maybe everything you’ve tried and explored until now (therapy, self-help and spiritual exploration and study, various healing modalities) hasn’t led to the joy, deeper meaning and emboldened change you have envisioned.
My own journey has taught me that your love for life, your vital energy and life force, your abundant creativity, and your dream to help the planet heal can be fully actualized.
When you discover the power of shamanic energy medicine and tap into the spiritual wisdom of Mother Earth medicine, you will find a powerful map and support for transforming your life on every level.
I offer 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. My 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.
In the Great Medicine Wheel of the New Earth, I incorporate all the teachings and practices learned through my lifelong study of the spiritual wisdom streams of Native American spirituality, western shamanism, Buddhism, depth psychotherapy, and multidimensional perspectives on peace, violence and trauma healing. You are led on a powerful journey of transformation and deepening through 4 Lodge retreats at the beautiful Galleywinter Farm and Retreat Center nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains in Central Virginia.
Whether you want to heal trauma, call more abundance into your life, create the work of your heart, become a spiritual activist, healer, or teacher, or simply connect more deeply into the loving medicine of Mother Earth and Spirit, you will find fun, warmth and transformation with in compassionate community.
Here’s a picture of one my students and our friends having a wonderful time during a beautiful flower-water ceremony at the Lynch River in Virginia.
Step out and feel the power of Mother Earth medicine to bring in new vitality and support emboldened change in yourself and the world.
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
