Engaging investigative modalities and shamanic technologies
to identify, restore, and be strategic about power.
Intuition & Divination
My work in folk magic brings together elements from Southern Conjure (hoodoo rootwork), Catholic Latin American traditions, and Western Occultism.
As an initiated asogwe priest in Haitian Vodou (Houngan Twòp Pou Tè) and as a quimbandeiro com licenca in Brazilian Quimbanda I am empowered to provide guidance and treatments within these traditions.
Focusing & Clearing
Inner Relationship Focusing - developed by Ann Weiser Cornell - is a practice for tracking "felt sense" energies in the body and clearing them at their root. As an energy healing method, Focusing encourages us to "be with what is" and invite our triggers, blocks, and feelings of being stuck to open up and be heard.
Contemporary Shamanism is unique to the industrialized Western world. It draws on the commonalities found in wisdom traditions across the globe to address the unique challenges of those born into cultures that have forgotten, misplaced, or been distanced from ancient practices for living sustainably within an interconnected world.
Common practices are geared toward helping to ensure wholeness and alignment through intimate work with Spirit-given helping spirits (including Animal and Plant Helping Spirits), the elements (Air, Fire, Water, and Earth), deep engagement with the Earth itself and local spirits of the land, and practices such as soul part retrieval / integration, energy body cultivation, and ancestor reverence.
My shamanic healing practices are informed by my spirit-induced initiatory experiences, intimacy with my helping spirits and the Cycle Teachings cosmology of the Last Mask Community founded by Christin.
