About the Center For Shamanic Healing

THE CENTER FOR SHAMANIC HEALING was founded in March 2009 by a circle of Shamanic Healers, Teachers and Practitioners dedicated to bridging Shamanic and Spiritual healing into the 21st century as a living, thriving practice. This is a blend of ancient and ancestral wisdom with new direct engagement with spirit.

We offer Shamanic Healing, Instruction and Apprenticeship; Shamanic Healing Sessions, Community Ceremonies and Rituals. Personal Ceremonies, Weddings, Transitions, Rites of Passage. Shamanic Counseling and Divination. We are currently offering a wide range of classes and gatherings ranging from an introduction to  the Shamanic Journey to an advanced Soul Retrieval Practitioner Training. Each 3rd Friday of the Month is a Free  Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki Community CircleWalking the Rainbow Bridge, a 9-month   comprehensive beginning Shamanic training.

Our Trainings are co-taught by Kent Dorsey and Suzanne Savage, who bring a unique  blend and balance of the Divine Feminine and Masculine in our Circles. Our healing work and teaching comes from the heart. The Shaman’s path is of the heart.  We step aside and create a sacred space for the Spirits to  work. We have been asked, “What makes the Center For Shamanic Healing’s Classes so unique?”  We offer individualized instruction in a small group setting. We journey on what each Circle needs as a whole and on what each student needs to best support their personal growth and journey on the path to healing or building their healing practice.

The Center For Shamanic Healing has a course of study for you whether this is your first trek into the wondrous realm of shamanic healing or shamanic studies.

Group Shamanic Sessions

I always believed healing of the spirit is as important as the healing of the physical body. In 1995, I began training as a Reiki practitioner & completed level II training.

My initial exposure into the world of shamanism came through “The Way of the Shaman” by Michael Harner. I’ve completed courses introducing shamanic work & initiations in core shamanism sponsored by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. These courses gave me the basics in shamanic work & and understanding of the spirit world & the potential for the healing of spiritual illnesses.

I learned a holistic method of soul retrieval from Sandra Ingerman. A compassionate method to reunite & make whole a spirit part with the individual for the possibility of a full life.

My most recent study with Betsy Bergstrom provided a framework for me to work in this everyday reality we call the middle world.

I’ve worked with individuals as well as in groups. Heart filled spiritual work allows us to address areas that defy other explanation. It helps us to address concerns, anxieties or apprehensions otherwise unresolved. It is about relieving suffering.
