Energy Healing for the Empath

Self - Healing Techniques and Survival Skills for the Empath

Are you an Empath?  Empaths are highly sensitive individuals who so often struggle with navigating emotionally, physically, energetically, and spiritually in life.   Many go through life experiencing so many challenges, and are unaware of the source of their sensitivity; and some do realize the source of their sensitivity, but are not sure how to work with the challenges that come along with it.  Although being an Empath can be a unique road to walk, it does not have to disable you, and you can learn to manage it and survive in a balanced and healthy way with this intuitive ability. This workshop will discuss the components of being an Empath, and incorporate self-healing skills and tools to assist with the process of managing this ability in a balanced and healthy way.  

No experience necessary, this workshop is open to anyone called to learn self-healing tools and skills to assist them with their Empath sensitivity.    Energy Healing for the Empath Workshop Includes the following:

Shamanic Practitioner Training & Certification

Learn how to connect and walk with the Spirits, Energies, and Nature 

for Healing, Empowerment, and Transformation

through time-honored ancient practices

Shamanism or Shamanic practice is a natural method or technique that connects to spirit and/or a higher power through a direct and personal connection.  One of the most ancient methods of natural healing and spiritual connection, it has been in existence for thousands of years, with some of its earliest beginnings in Siberian and Mongolian regions.  It is a spiritual path that co-exists with all belief systems, and encompasses and spans a variety of cultures, practices, beliefs, and connections to the natural world.  Our ancestors practiced some form of Shamanism or Animism (depending on the culture and region) and had a deep relationship with the Earth and Nature.  A form of Shamanism and/or Animistic practices is rooted somewhere in many cultures in society, and is still very much alive and in existence in our current modern times.  

Shamanism can be embraced by all - however, practicing Shamanism itself does not necessarily ensure that one is automatically deemed a "Shaman."  Shamans are born, and cannot be made.  A Shaman is chosen by the Spirits directly, is born with natural abilities, and generally experiences severe life altering traumas, near death experiences, and at times, horrific initiations from the Spirits as part of their calling to the work.  For the Shaman, those initiations continue for the rest of their life, and do not stop as they embrace their pathway.  In addition to their calling, a Shaman still has the responsibility of pursing apprenticeship and training with Elders and Mentors in conjunction with their Spirit chosen path.  Shamanism is a life-long pathway and devotion that incorporates integrity, responsibility, respect, and humility; and is a combination of natural abilities and many years of training from both seasoned mentors and the Spirits combined.

Shamanic Spirit Program

2 Year Shamanic Practitioner Certification Program

The Shamanic Spirit program incorporates a combination of lecture, shamanic healing techniques, and extensive hands-on training. 
Training is personalized to each student and their skill levels in conjunction with the program curriculum. The program consists of a combination of Foundation and Advanced courses with teachings from a variety of reputable shamanic teachers in Core Shamanism, including Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman, and Hank Wesselman, along with additional shamanic practices. The program includes shamanic training for the self, in addition to training for providing shamanic healing for others. Shamanic ethics and professional standards of practice are also included in the training.

Shamanic Spirit Program Courses

Foundation Shamanic Training - Beginner & Intermediate Training - 1st Year:
Foundation Shamanic Training Sessions include multiple courses with various techniques in beginner and intermediate Shamanism & Shamanic Healing, including Shamanic Journey work, Cleansing & Protection, Spirit Guides and Spirit Relationships, Shamanic Ceremonial work, Power Animal Healing, in addition to much, much more. Training is very in-depth to provide students with a solid foundation.

Advanced Shamanic Training - 2nd Year:
Advanced Shamanic Training Sessions include advanced healing techniques such as Soul Retrieval, Extraction, Curse Breaking Healing, Professional Space Clearing & Blessing Healing, Psychopomp Healing, Ancestral Healing, and much more.  Advanced Shamanic Training  has different extended training hours per session, fees, and pre-requisites, depending on the type of training.   Training is very in-depth to provide students with a solid foundation. 

Shamanic Practitioner Certification is issued upon completion of both Foundation and Advanced Shamanic Training. 
Please note that this program does not and cannot certify individuals as "Shamans."   
It is impossible to do...  No program, training, or workshop is capable of making anyone a Shaman, as Shamans are born into their calling, and called by the Spirits in addition to their training, and cannot be "made a Shaman" by any form of training alone.  

Shamanic Spirit Program Registration:

If you are interested in the Shamanic Spirit Program, contact Jessica for more information, program pricing, and scheduling information.  
Potential students must complete an admissions process to be accepted into this program.  Upon acceptance into the program,  training sessions are scheduled by appointment.

Please note I will no longer be offering Reiki Certification Courses.   

I am very grateful for all of the students that I have taught over the years, and who I have shared the journey of Reiki with.  I am also grateful for the mentors who taught me.  Reiki will always be a part of my life and will continue to be a part of my healing practice.  However, my teaching focus for training programs is currently dedicated to Shamanism and Crystal Healing.  For any students who have taken Reiki Training with me who have not completed all the levels up to Reiki Master, and who wish to continue their training - I will be happy to recommend some excellent Reiki Teachers to you to continue your journey.    With much gratitude ~ Jessica Hunter
