Why Shamanism?

Shamanic spiritual healing is ancient medicine practiced by indigenous people world wide. Entering “non-ordinary” reality, shamans request help from spirits who love us and who want us be healed and whole.

Modern Shamanic Healing is complementary to modern medicine and therapy. Shamanism can accelerate other therapies’ effectiveness, removing impediments and facilitating rapid healing. Often spiritual healing is the missing link, the wind in the sails that allows true healing to rapidly progress.

The Shamanic Journey gives us a clear channel of communication with living and deceased animals. The Journey involves crossing between the worlds, first connecting with Compassionate Spirits, and then with the animal we want to communicate with. The Spirits augment and clarify communications we receive, and they offer healing to the animal’s traumas, physical and emotional. Shamanic work is all about results!

Carla teaches shamanism world wide through distance education and live workshops. Carla’s courses are geared toward healing animals, but the path involves deep personal transformation. Your Spirits will guide your personal path to wisdom
