I have walked in, studied and melded with nature and its creatures my entire life. I have dedicated the last twenty years of my path to serving people through providing educational, spiritual and healing opportunities. My degrees are in education and Masters in environmental interpretation and natural resource management and a PhD in metaphysics. My real degrees are in what I have acquired from my indigenous teachers and directly from Mother Nature.
Born Italian gypsy, my grandmother was a medicine woman for four clans in Italy. My people shepards. Shamanic medicine was part of my birth heritage. In 1990 I began studying with indigenous people; Native American; Mayan; Australian; African, Celtic and others. I have been adopted by my Mayan family and my Lakota family. I lived and learned from my elders of many indigenous cultures for over 35 years.
I have been asked to offer shamanic healing and teach shamanic practices and medicine for years, but until recently I have resisted. The concepts of ‘shaman’ and ‘shamanic medicine’ have been so misused that I did not wish to enter this arena. Now, as our world and all its creatures – including we humans – are in such need of healing I have been offering some shamanic healing venues and sharing some of the shamanic teachings and practices that have been taught to me.
