Suki Healing Arts

Shamanic Healing with Art Practice which includes:

* soul retrieval
* extractions
* art journeys
* guided ceremony
* workshops
* remote healings

I am an artist and have been since I was really little. I enjoy making art in many mediums, from felting to glass work, and facilitating art as a path to healing for others. I call it “art coaching“. I love making things from found objects and the everyday things of life, making small dioramas like little altars. I also love anything that glitters or has feathers or bright colors. I believe that color itself heals us all.

         I have been studying Hawaiian Shamanism for the past four years with Hank Wesselman of Shared Wisdom and have started to facilitate shamanic journeywork, soul retrieval, and healing sessions for people who are interested in delving into the nature of their existence and life path. This includes helping others to heal from past traumas and experiences and to move closer to finding true soul purpose and passions.

         I have a cozy “Suki Cave” in my home with a heated massage table and an adjoining art studio. During the post-journey period, my clients and I explore the healing experience in the artistic medium of their choice.  I invite my clients to come and take some time for themselves, to relax and rest, to do some art and connect with their inner voice and true self.

         I am also trained in doing remote healing sessions that includes creating a small art piece for my client, to mark the healing that occurs.  I then send the artwork, along with a detailed description of the healing session, to the healee.

         I attended Parson’s School of Design, The Art Student’s League, and Fashion Institute of Technology, where I studied millinery design with Ann Albrizio and graduated with a BFA in Therapeutic and Fine Arts from Vermont College. I have been studying with Hank Wesselman and Jill Kuykendall of SharedWisdom for two years via their Visionseeker workshops and the SharedWisdom Continuum Program series, ever deepening my personal growth and visionary and healing skills.
