This full-day workshop uses the “Love Fountain” to create healthy, fun and very helpful connections first with yourself, and then expanding to spirits, spirit guides, animal guides, and natural energies. It encourages you to recognize and appreciate your uniqueness and to follow your authentic path in life.
Gathering together in a small group we will create a community for support – from the human, spirit and natural worlds. Following our own path is crucial because it encourages others to follow their unique path into the love, mysteries and abundance of both the physical and non-physical worlds.
This workshop will introduce you to the core practices of Psychological Shamanism, which is the method of working with the energetic/non-physical worlds that is specifically adapted for, and created by, western culture. From Descartes to Darwin, from Socrates to Freud, Western civilizations have focused on the mind as a tool to explore the world. Like all shamanic tools the mind needs to be treated with respect and care. It has the ability to both cause devastating destruction and create profound innovations and enlightenment.
I will be sharing techniques and practical tools that I have learned in over 35 years of apprenticing with Native American teachers and healers. I will also be drawing from my background in neuroscience and my expertise as a licensed psychotherapist to help us expand beyond the blocks and fears that prevent us from fully embracing our place in this world.

Comments from participants in past workshops:
“(I liked) Jan’s modeling of authenticity, full permission to be ourselves and self-care! (I learned to) remember to open to the world around me, that attention and intention are powerful, that I am a participant in how this all goes and I am the authority on my own needs and truth.”
“For me, the best thing was Jan herself – every nuance and word was allowing and informing with generosity and respect.”
“Imperative work for expanding paradigms and multiple ways of knowing and self-care practices.”
“Lovely, informative and playful.”
“I learned to be open to receiving and to allow my imagination to run free and that it’s okay to be really weird!”
“All pieces work well together. I liked Jan’s stories and easy manner.”
