At Hunter Healing Hands - things are done differently, to make a difference!!

Workshops, Circles, and Events are facilitated in small groups here.  Jessica's focus is to create an intimate, authentic, safe,  balanced, honest, and constructive learning environment -  where students have an opportunity to grow, develop, interact, and also have the opportunity to learn; not only from the class, but also from each other.  She strives to provide quality workshops, circles, and events, that are rich in focus, content, value, and depth - that come from a sacred, honored, and respectful perspective and approach of spiritual, energetic, and metaphysical pathways.

Walking in the Worlds

The Shamanic Journey 

Weekend Intensive Workshop

The Shamanic Journey is an ancient technique to connect with Spirit and Energy, and is used to step into the Spirit worlds that co-exist with ordinary reality.  This in-depth and intensive workshop will cover what the Shamanic Journey is, how it works, and various ways of using it from a Core Shamanism perspective.   Students will learn self healing techniques for personal healing connections with Spirits and Energy, in addition to how to begin establishing Spirit relations in shamanic practices.  Students will also learn how to safely and effectively conduct a Shamanic Journey, explore introductory elements and parameters of Shamanism,  learn to work with Spirit Guides and Power Animals, in addition to much more.  Discussion and exploration of the various worlds in Shamanism is also incorporated, in addition to various hands on techniques and exercises in different aspects of Shamanic Journey work.  

No prior shamanic experience necessary to take this workshop, it is open to anyone who wishes to learn how to journey.  

Please note this workshop alone is not a replacement for Shamanic Training for working on others, and it is also not a replacement for Shamanic Practitioner training.  Appropriate Shamanic training and/or Shamanic Practitioner training should be pursued well beyond a journey workshop before attempting any type of shamanic healing on others.  

If you are interested in Shamanic Training / Shamanic Practitioner Training:  This workshop is the required pre-requisite prior to taking the 2 Year Shamanic Practitioner Program here.  

This workshop is offered in the Spring and Fall in a small group format.    Group Workshop dates are posted on the website regularly.  This workshop is also offered by private appointment for individuals (taught one on one).  If you would like to schedule a private workshop, contact Jessica for more info and fees.

Next Group Workshop:  Fall 2019.  Dates to be posted soon.

Energy Healing for the Empath Workshop

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:

- Class Lecture & Discussion

- Grounding & Balancing Techniques for energetic stability

- Multiple Protection Techniques for Self Survival & Energy Preservation

Annual Shamanic Ceremony

Honoring the Pequots

A Sacred Shamanic Ceremony

 for Healing and Honoring the Victims, Perpetrators, and the Land

connected with the Pequot War

"Jessica, I just wanted to thank you for the great work you are doing connected with the Pequots, and the very fine story you wrote for the Society for Shamanic Practitioners.  Everything you wrote down rings completely true, and I am very pleased to know of your work.  Take care, and just wanted to let you know you are appreciated.  May you have a good successful life continuing your work."   

                                                                                                                                   ~ Michael Harner, The Foundation for Shamanic Studies, 2016

This is a sacred ceremony to honor the local Pequot Tribe, and join in a circle of healing for all ancestral ties of all of the victims, perpetrators, and land spirits, connected to this war.  This ceremony is being held on the anniversary of the "Great Swamp Fight" - one of the largest and most impactful Native American battles in the history of New England - that finally ended in Fairfield (Southport), Connecticut, on July 13, 1637.    We cannot forget to honor the Natives who sacrificed their lives and their land.  They were the first people, and they were greatly wronged on so many levels.  We cannot change that the Pequot War happened; however, we can offer honor and respect for these people and their ancestors.  This ceremony will include shamanic healing work for all victims, perpetrators, and the land, including healing for our own ancestral ties to these entanglements.  We will be honoring the Spirits in various forms to honor their lives.

Disclaimer: Please note this event is not associated with or sponsored directly by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation or any of its affiliates.

Jessica has been working with healing work connected to the Pequot Spirits and the land connected to them for many years.  

Her focus is to bring awareness, healing, and respect for the first people in our local area, their ancestors, and the land, through sacred ceremony.  More information on Jessica's work connected to the Pequot war can be found in her article, "Honoring the Pequots: Healing War & Trauma through Shamanic Ceremony", which was published in the Journal of Shamanic Practice in 2016.   

Saturday, July 13, 2019

Location: Hunter Healing Hands

The first part of the ceremony will begin at Hunter Healing Hands, and then continue at various land locations connected to the Pequot War to leave offerings for the remainder of the ceremony.

Exchange:  $40  All of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.

Registration:  As this is a sacred ceremony - registration / attendance is by Invitation only directly from Hunter Healing Hands.  Ceremony time, details, and requirements will be sent via Invitation.
