You may feel like the world is shifting under your feet and it’s hard to stay balanced. You may have friends and family, a doctor or a minister, a therapist or all of the above. However, now may be the time to try something new, because what you are experiencing doesn’t fit neatly into any category from your past. Maybe you feel something welling up inside and sense change is coming whether you like it or not. You’d like to figure out how to respond to this sense of urgency (or gentle voice, or feeling that something is not quite right in your life) proactively rather than reactively. You need a place that is safe and sacred, welcoming whatever your beliefs are, wherever you are on your journey. My goal is to provide that sacred space, to be a catalyst for you to connect to your internal and external sources of spiritual support, guidance and healing.
The first session with Mara is 90 minutes. It generally includes 3 parts: A review of what issues you want to address (physical, emotional, practical), an assessment and plan to determine what methods would be most helpful in addressing those issues, some intuitive and/or healing work to begin.
Subsequent sessions are based on what you and Mara decide in the initial session, and may include shamanic healing, intuitive guidance, and energetic healing.
Sessions can include:
Energetic Clearing and Balancing – Using a combination of techniques (Shamanic Healing, Healing with Spiritual Light, Reiki) energy that does not belong is gently removed from the system to restore balance. Addresses emotional and physical overload.
Soul Retrieval – A core shamanic healing method that addresses the root of trauma. Do you feel like you’ve lost part of yourself along the way? That you are going through the motions, or that after a very painful event you haven’t been the same? On an energetic level we change during and after trauma. Soul retrieval helps reconnect parts of our spirit that disconnected during times of trauma.
Intuitive Consultation – Practical, grounded intuitive guidance to help you focus on what’s important in your life now, achieve goals and make good choices, see patterns in relationships, and develop confidence in your own sources of internal wisdom.
