Hello, I'm Sarah!
I've been studying, practicing, and teaching shamanism and shamanic healing since 2013.
Prior to shamanism, my background was in academic research in the fields of biology, psychology, neuroscience, and neuroendocrinology. I hold a B.S. from the University of Wisconsin (2007), and an M.S. in Psychology from there as well (2013).
If you're interested in my research background, you can find me on PubMed here.
Academic research feels like a lifetime away, but it was during my then Ph.D. program that my first child was born and my spiritual awakening started.
From there, I learned that I had the gift of shamanism (from my sister, who is a medium, and brought through an ancestor who said as much), and I slowly started learning with the help of my sister, who would channel my spirit guides to teach me. Since that time, I've had many physical and non-physical teachers of shamanism, and in many ways, my own life has been the ultimate teacher.
Shamanism has been a blessing in my life, but I was resistant to it at first. I did not want to do shamanism. I wanted to stay in what I perceived to be my regular, normal, research person life, and I didn't want to be what I felt, at the time, was a mystical healer.
I did not embrace it with open arms, and it took me four years to accept this part of myself and release the idea of who I was before.
If you've come here, and you're reading this, resisting shamanism or any spiritual gifting, and this part of your path, I understand. I've been there. I know that feeling. You're safe and you're loved.
Welcome to my little corner of the internet.
“You are a gift in my life.”
You were the first and only person with who I felt really on the same page. I like the way you teach, the way you see the world and I'm totally in love with your energies. It's like seeing you gave me the permission to finally do and say out loud what I wanted to do and to say for a very long time. I rediscovered myself thanks to you and you created a safe space where I could go when I was scared or if I had doubts. Your voice, your meditations, your videos helped me to calm down, to work on my issues and to have faith and confidence when I needed to. So I could never thank you enough for all that you did for me. You are a gift in my life.
"You exceeded my expectations"
I loved our hour together. I knew it would be wonderful to work with you but you exceeded my expectations. I truly appreciate the extra time you gave me and how you tried so hard to fit as much healing in as you could. The post session notes are exactly what I needed. I look so forward to speaking with you again. I wish you and your family lots of love, peace and joy.
"It really does work"
Sarah, a big thank you and love and gratitude for the two healing sessions I took part in. You have demonstrated to me how it really does work and how powerful this healing is
“Thank you again for sharing your gifts in such a beautiful way.”
I just thought you should know how much your work has helped me. The universe connected me to you at just the right time (of course). I have been participating in these weekly healing circles since the beginning. And each time I think I'm fully great, the theme of the week hits me exactly where I need it. I am always so eager to see your review of the session and I often burst into tears with recognition of the truth of the work that has been done. Thank you again for sharing your gifts in such a beautiful way. I hope to return the favor one day.
