My shamanic initiation began over 12 years ago.
I don’t claim to be an initiate or a “certified practitioner” under any particular lineage. My initiation comes directly from the spirits. They’re the ones that power my work. They’re also the ones that told me when it was time to offer my services to the public. Without them, I couldn’t do this work, and the work speaks for itself.
I’ve worn a lot of different hats in my life. I studied theatre at NYU, I’m a published playwright, I worked as TV writer, I’ve been a copywriter for cannabis companies, and I occasionally do stand-up comedy. If you’d told me 12 years ago, I’d be working as a shaman, I would have been like, “You’re crazy. Go away.”
But now that I’m knee-deep in the work, I can’t see myself doing anything else. It’s more than a vocation. It goes beyond “loving what I do.” It’s a part of who I am. It’s in my blood and my bones.
I won’t lie to you. This process requires work. It’s not like you flip a switch or take a pill and all of sudden you’re “healed.” You have to confront your demons, whether they be metaphorical or literal.
But the good news is that you don’t have to face those demons alone. I don’t know your exact circumstance, but I know what it’s like to hit rock bottom. I know what it’s like to feel surrounded by darkness and to have to claw your way back into the light again.
I’ve worked with hardcore spiritually-minded people and with skeptics alike. It doesn’t matter what you believe or don’t believe. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to let the transformation process take place.
If you’re willing to put in the work, I’m willing to stand with you and help you get to the finish line.
