Post Ranch Inn located in Big Sur, California has always been known for its forward thinking when it comes to harmonizing with the exquisite land and nature on which it rests. From the architecture, to the food, to honoring the full history and sustainable practices of the previous stewards of the land, the property has always offered its guests the most comprehensive and deeply connected experiences that could ever be imagined at a destination hotel.
And so it was not surprising for their world-class spa to find and bring in the most authentic and deepest of healing modalities that the world has to offer – a fully trained shaman who has bridged the modern and ancient worlds in a way that makes the experience both comfortable and completely life-transforming.
I have been trained and initiated by indigenous healers from around the world, and most notably the Q’ero Indians from Peru who share ancestry with the natives of the very land that Post Ranch Inn now stewards for its guests. In fact, as sessions begin, I create a sacred and protected space by calling in the surrounding forces of nature, including the animals, the Earth, the Heavens, and the great healers from near and far to form the team that goes to work on the individual, couple, or group that has had the courage to sign up for quite possibly the most powerful experience of their life.
A session involves an explanation of the history and basis of the work, and a crystallization of exactly what you want to get out of it. It truly is an opportunity to heal or take your experiences around health, relationships, work and resources to a whole new level. The rest of the session includes powerful stones, feathers, cleansing herbs, rattles, and drums as you lay comfortably in a relaxing state.
With my ability to see psychically into the core of your being, known as the soul, luminous energy field, aura, and chakras, etc., I am able to facilitate clearing energy blocks and imprints from your past, past lives, or even your ancestors so that you are no longer carrying their influence and heaviness. Often during the session, you can feel these energies moving and releasing, even if you don’t believe in it, or have ever felt anything like it before; and I can share with you what I’ve seen, which is usually insightful and helpful.
I ensure that no stone is left unturned and will also bring back parts of yourself that have gone missing, along with a power animal and gift to help you going forward. I usually include journeying into the future for you to bring in the energetic patterns that will help you achieve your greatest goals and destiny. I, then offer some simple and powerful tools to take home and will continue to be available via email, phone, or Skype for any follow-up questions or sessions you may desire.
