SHAMANIC HEALING, JOURNEYING & SPIRITUAL SUPPORT
From a shamanic
perspective, the source of everything is Spirit. A shaman's
role is to compassionately address the sources of any disharmony
in the spiritual realm to create healing and balance here. It
is an excellent complement to traditional psychological and
medical treatment as it addresses underlying spiritual causes
that are not well addressed by other methods.
A shaman's ability to heal is based on the
connection she has forged with the compassionate energies of her
spirit teachers and power animals. Evelyn and Allie expand their
awareness into the spirit world to search out the lost fragments
of your self/spirit to retrieve them safely, release
unbeneficial energies from your body, guide you to sources of
personal power and restore the connections between you and the
Shamanic healing is creative and
participatory. It recognizes that spiritual health supports an
individual's physical, emotional and mental health.If you are experiencing the effects of
physical, mental or emotional trauma, chronic pain or illness,
depression, anxiety or addictions, shamanic healing can help by
locating the spiritual causes of your pain and releasing those
patterns of suffering from your life.*
healing with Evelyn and Allie is also very beneficial if you are
feeling well and seeking ways to create even more joy and
meaning in your life. This most ancient of healing ways
brings practical resources to your life while helping you to
explore the profound richness of who you truly are!
The specifics of your healing are always
guided by Evelyn and Allie's helping spirits. For this reason,
they always journey on your behalf to determine what work would
be most beneficial.

SHAMANIC JOURNEYING &
LONG DISTANCE WORK
What is a
shamanic healing session like?
Shamanic healing is
done in an atmosphere of compassion. Spirit Passages' clients
are always treated with care and respect and your healing will
happen in the beautiful setting of the integrative health
center, True North. There, Evelyn and Allie are fortunate to
collaborate with physicians, nurses, a psychiatrist, a
naturopath, acupuncturist, massages therapists and other health
Your first meeting with Evelyn and Allie
will be an hour-long introductory session when you can share
what draws you to seek shamanic healing and ask questions. At
the close of that hour, you can make an appointment for your
two-hour healing. Additional sessions are about "fastening the
healing"-- that is integration. The follow-up sessions are also
about two hours in length. It is expected that your sessions are
paid for at the time of service.
When you arrive for your healing session,
you will be greeted by Evelyn or Allie and lead to their healing
room where you will sit together for a few minutes before your
healing. The healing happens while you are lying on massage
table. (Seating arrangements may be made for patients with
special needs.) The room is quietly lit and looks out over a
patch of woods.
To begin the session, Allie will proceed
to welcome the compassionate, healing spirits that will be
working on your behalf. She will be using rattles as part of
this opening prayer and will in each direction, ask the spirits
if they wish to give a message. You will also be given an
opportunity to welcome those spirits that you feel are your
protectors. This ceremony will be recorded so that you may
re-listen to the spirits' messages as part of integration.
When the spirits have entered, Allie and
Evelyn will ask you to make your request for healing. Please
give this request some consideration prior to the first meeting
so that you are able to communicate your needs to the spirits as
clearly and concisely as you can.
At this time, the actual work will
proceed. For the extraction of intrusive energy, the shamans,
who at this time are merged with their helping spirits, may make
noises, sing, drum and rattle. These various sounds help to
"un-stick" the unbeneficial from your body. Allie is usually
the person working close to you and she will be using her hands,
feathers and crystals to remove the intrusions. These energies,
once removed, are placed in water to transmute them and send
them on their way. Nothing in creation is ever destroyed--only
changed. (Please inform Allie and Evelyn if you have had
surgeries, injuries or places on your body that may be
uncomfortable to touch.)
During a soul retrieval or power animal
retrieval, Allie or Evie will be sitting next to you. They will
be journeying, on your behalf, to find the fragments of your
soul and only energies that are beneficial to you will be
returned. They will narrate what they perceive and this will
also be recorded. Once all parts are gathered, the shaman will
blow the soul essences into your heart and into the top of your
head. (Pay attention to the sensations you feel in this
moment. Some people may feel the fragments as they are
returned, although felt or not, the parts are safe inside you!)
At the completion of this step, they will then rattle a small
bell around you to seal the soul fragments into your body.
The next segment of the session is a visit with Evelyn's teacher
who is known as "Grandma." This is a journey for the purpose of
getting a prescription for integration. The visit with Grandma
is recorded for you as well. Integration of your healing may
take innumerable forms. Grandma has given prescriptions as
varied as shamanic journeying, journal writing, singing, daily
prayer and even kite flying! They are as individual as the many
people Allie and Evelyn have worked with and when these
suggestions are followed faithfully...truly remarkable
transformations are possible.
If you are having a Shamanic Inner Body
Healing session, this is also done while you are lying down on
the massage table and begins with a welcoming of the spirits.
These sessions usually last two hours and are also recorded for
you. This helps to capture the process for later review--which
is especially useful since the stories that our bodies and
spirits share with us seldom unfold in a linear manner!
After your healing, you will be given only
brief opportunity to speak. Since discussion is an intellectual
activity it can have the effect of diluting the power of the
healing. (Many tribal shamans see any kind of talk after a
healing as disrespectful to the spirits!) By talking about
things we define and limit what is actually non-linear and
limitless! Allie and Evelyn believe that it is necessary to be
in the mystery...to respect that which has unfolded in the realm
As you follow the integration instructions, you may find that
the actual healing continues to progress for several days, weeks
or months after the healing session. Do review your recording
and any lingering questions you have can be addressed during
your first follow-up session which is usually scheduled for a
few weeks after your healing.
In the time between these visits with Evelyn and Allie, treat
yourself with gentleness. Follow the advice that was given and
observe the changes you perceive in yourself. You may feel a
renewal of your faith, a deeper connection to the natural world,
or may feel an overall infusion of peace flowing into and
through you. You may have lost memories return, experience
heightened awareness or feel something subtle and unique to you.
The important thing is to allow your divine process to unfold as
you remember that you are a precious part of creation!
