Transpersonal Psychologist and Shamanic Practitioner

As a Transpersonal Psychologist, I use shamanic journey as one of my tools, helping individuals and groups go into trance and travel to spirit worlds for insight and transformation. I also journey on the behalf of clients and bring back information for healing from my own spirit allies. I have been doing shamanic work since 1993 and run journey circles in central California. I can do sessions for individuals over the phone and long distance healing using Reiki and the Reconnection. I am the author of five books and my newest one will launch in the fall of 2015, entitled You Don't Have To Die To Go to Heaven. I will have a radio show starting in January with Dr. Pat's Transformation Network.

Shasta Shaman

My helping spirits and I perform shamanic healing services at Ravensites in the morning shadows of Mt. Shasta.  Wyeka, as she is called by the Shasta People, manifests her own powers; we focus them to address your healing needs.  Among the healing services we offer are: soul retrieval, journeys to your ancestors, to your power animals, to your healer self or your cosmic self, divination, extraction, depossession, dismemberment, curse unraveling, merging and other work which the helping spirits may suggest.
My teachers include both modern shamanic practitioners as well as healers from the First Nations such as Esselen, Cherokee, and Karuk.  I can teach you to use Nature herself as a helping spirit so you can do the work yourself.

Offering an integrated approach that marries spiritual with the physical, Trice shares tools for clearing out what's not needed and gathering up and bringing forth pieces of ourselves that may have been lost due to life trauma. The threefold piece of Trice's shamanic work is to help individuals become more fully present in themselves; to discover and make manifest their unique gifts and talents; and to show up in the world as their authentic selves. Her spiritual practice draws from a variety of teachers and tribal traditions beginning in the early 80s when she apprenticed with Paiute medicine men and women in Nevada. She has studied and trained with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, Angeles Arrien, Betsy Bergstrom, and Sandra Ingerman.   For more than a decade, she had anchored vision quests for adults as well as young people. Thirty years as a professional body worker and a decade of teaching yoga round out Trice's experience.

Shamanic Practitioner and Psychotherapist

I specialize in working with individual adults who have a vision for greater happiness, meaning, and connection to their most authentic Self and true life- path.

I also work with adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress. I have special training in working with children who have been abused or who are struggling at home or at school.

As an empathic intuitive clairvoyant, I strive to help others find their way through their maze of negative perceptions to the healthy emotions that allow them to enjoy a peaceful heart and mind.

I especially enjoy working with clearing spaces with heavy energies and doing extraction work, Soul Retrieval, individualized energy shifting work, and ritual work. I can help you create a personal ritual during a time of transition and I can help create a ritual for children and families.

I integrate over 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist with the expressive arts, shamanic techniques, earth-based medicine techniques, and movement. I work in person or over the distance.

I completed an advanced practitioners course in Ireland through Shamanism Ireland with Martin Duffy and feel so much gratitude for his teaching and connection to the Spirits. I model my style with clients after his approach in that I mainly seek to help people connect with their Guides and feel a sense of support there. The training included 5 residential weekends plus a 5-day residential course.

is a licensed Marriage Family Therapist with over 25 years of clinical experience. Since 1990, Dr. Cohn has researched the application of shamanic healing practices to psychotherapy. Those pursuits have led him to study the traditions of the Huichol Indians of Mexico, the Shuar of Ecuador, the Jaguar Shamans of the Amazon, the coastal shamans and the Q'uero of Peru. Dr. Alberto Villoldo has initiated him in the ancient Incan healing traditions as a Master Shaman. He has received the high rites from Don Manuel Quispe and other spiritual leaders of the Q'uero.

Dr. Cohn is expert at bridging the techniques of Western psychotherapy with indigenous practices. He is able to bring ancient wisdom forward in ways that help clients and students of shamanism integrate shamanic healings into their lives. His shamanic healing practice includes energy healing sessions to clear luminous body of dense energies and emotional blocks and the release of intrusive energies and entities. Traumatic events can cause part of the soul to leave the luminous body, which may create feelings of emptiness, fragmentation, disconnection, depression, as well as physical illness. The shaman uses soul retrieval to journey to other worlds to retrieve the fragmented parts of the soul and obtain information for the client's true purpose, hidden promises and gifts.

Dr. Cohn also holds year-long training programs in Inca Cosmo vision for those interested in learning more about shamanism.   He can be reached in Los Angeles at 310-840-4505.

Offered in Ojai, California, this workshop gives time and space to witness what is sacred - a person's own emotions and feeling states.   Using ecstatic movement and a late night ritual, the work collapses the boundaries of the ego to free the authentic expressions of the self.   The shamanic awakening invites areas that are blocked, protected or wounded to become portals into the spirit world. The first of the two rituals emphasizes emptying out the emotional block of grief. The second ritual is about witnessing the conscious filling up of joy. In addition to teaching, Path of the Heart, Jacqueline maintains a small practice in Ojai, California.

Alan studies and practices the shamanic healing arts with teachers both in the core shamanic and Huna traditions.

He is a Mesa carrier in the Pachakuiti Tradition, as developed by his teacher Oscar Miro-Quesada, that allows him to resonate deeply with the powerful elemental spirits of nature.
