February 2021 

Imbolc Greetings to You!

Here where I live in Massachusetts, February has become the month that brings us the most snow. It's often hard for me to reconcile all this snowy, cold weather with the Celtic-based Wheel of the Year, though I do see signs of spring at this time. Some trees have started budding. Birds are getting ready for mating season. The male cardinals already have grown brighter plumage and I'm hearing more territorial songs from them, though my feeders are still full of both male and female cardinals (I find they're the most territorial birds in my yard). I try to focus on sunlight: how it's growing, the change in the quality of light and the fact that it's lighter later into the evening. I look at Brighid as a bringer of light, growth, spring as we turn to the light half of the year in the Celtic calendar.

Things to give time to thinking about this month:
What are you looking to at this time of year for inspiration?
What's reminding you of the coming spring?
What's giving you hope?

With the blessings of the Ancestors,


Practice Updates, Upcoming Programs 
I've made the decision this month to give up my physical office and solely do distance work. Distance work is just as effective as in-person work. In shamanic healing, the healer mostly works outside of space and time, whether in-person or at a distance. 

Every year I look at my healing practice-  what is working for me, what is not working - and modify accordingly. This past has brought a lot of clients to me who are looking more for psychic-type readings rather than healings and often asking for a discount. In response to that I'm offering lower cost recorded card readings and divination journeys. These services will be delivered via email.  You can find the new offerings here in the shop:

I also offer:
Spiritual Mentoring
Shamanic Journey Divination via Zoom

Shamanic Light Healing Sessions
Healing sessions are available several days a week. I'm continuing to work via Zoom. If you are interested in a session, contact me by replying to this email with availability and a brief description of what's going on and I'll see if we can work together and when I can get you on my schedule.

Please Note: I am no longer able to offer a sliding scale in 2021. I am offering one discounted new client appointment per month and two discounted existing client appointments per month. Please contact me for availability.

Shamanic Skills Apprenticeship 
 The next offering of this class will be around the Spring Equinox. This program runs for 4 months, meeting bi-weekly on Zoom for 2 - 3 hours each time. In the basic program we explore what it means to do shamanic work and follow the path of direct revelation, including energetic clearing methods, spiritual bathing, discernment, basic cosmology, working in-depth with Spirit Guides for  personal healing, direction, divination, working with Ancestors and more. Additional topical classes (faeries, deathwalking) are available. This program is for people who want to learn and expand upon shamanic skills for their own needs or as part of an existing healing practice. For more information, check out the Apprenticeship page on my website
To enroll, send me an email with your name, address, age and a short essay (paragraph or two) stating why you'd like to join this program.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
