Sacred Roots

As easily as you can remember your favorite tree, you can step into the Spirit world. Your Sacred Tree holds the secrets. This is the simplest way to begin shamanic journeying, and it is authentically yours. Welcome home.

At SpiritHealer we enter the Shamanic Realms by remembering our loving connection to a tree. Our imagination and memory fills. Your Sacred Tree stands with you, and portals open. Power Animals appear, and another reality unfolds, filled with healing and wonder. 

In this FREE class you will follow the sacred path Grandmother Sunflower laid out for us, and begin your shamanic journey. It’s easy, beautiful and fun!

Power Animal Connection

SpiritHealer Mastery Circle is inviting you to a dance with your Animal Spirit Guide (your Power Animal). When you dance with your Power Animal, you are honoring them and they are embracing you. The first, and most important shamanic initiation is merging with our compassionate Spirit Guides. We will do that with bells on our toes! It is so fun, and so healing. Learn the most fundamental shamanic technique, and strengthen your bond. And as a bonus, you will very likely meet a NEW! Power Animal. Because when we open the doors, the Spirits who love us are happy to finally step into our hearts.

Beginner’s Path in Mastery Circle

Join the Mastery Circle and come to our monthly Beginner’s Path meeting, as well as all our other events – nearly 8 hours a month of live zoom circles.

Karen Hixson leads your circle (currently on the 3rd Thursday @ 11 pacific , but check events). She takes you through the 3 worlds, shamanic animal communication and other basics, making sure all your questions are answered and you are solid on your path.

You will grow quickly by coming to all our events, because shamanism is nonlinear. So even advanced classes can become doorways for newbies to experience deep connection and learning.
