Join Stephanie on a Journey back to YOU starting May 2018.
Many have been asking what exactly Shamanism is and how to apply the principles to enhance daily life.
Shamanism may seem "out of reach" or perhaps even "scary". I understand and that's why I am excited to invite you to learn more about my program, Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Living, starting May 17th, 2018.
Kindly Note Full Program details here.
Nourishment For Body Mind Spirit

Walking With Protection Workshop
Saturday, September 16th, 2017
Does evil exist? What is dark energy?
Do you absorb other people's negative
energy & emotions leaving you feeling drained?
How do we protect ourselves from this intrusive energy?
What are the signs you need to know about when it comes to protecting your energy??
Feeling exhausted all the time, no matter how much sleep you get or how well you eat is a sign your energy needs to be cleared and that you will benefit from working with protection tools.
Also, radical changes in behavior, especially negative changes that seem "beyond" your control is another sign.
This workshop is especially helpful for sensitive people, em-paths, health and wellness professionals, body-workers and anyone who deals with individuals and groups on a regular basis.
Don't ignore the signs! It doesn't take much to clear and get back on track. Once you learn, you'll be able to do on-going "maintenance".
In her workshop, Stephanie will discuss all of this & you will learn:
*How evil/dark energy works*
*The ways we break our own protections*
*Shamanic psycho-spiritual protection tools & techniques to protect you from harmful energies when engaging with other people's energy fields *
*How to clear dark energy*
Kindly Note: Class is limited to 8 people.
Payment of $65 is due upon registration.

Being Heard by Stephanie
Last week we talked about the importance of energetic balance and
energy healing as part of on-going self-care.
This week the theme of self-care continues as it relates to whether or not we feel we are "being heard".
Why? Quite simply, if we don't feel heard, our needs will go unmet. Over time, this drains us and we may give up asking altogether. When we do this, we invalidate what's important to our well-being.
For those of us who are em-paths, we may not even be asking at all! Perhaps we are so sensitive that we are afraid to ask. Whatever the case, not being heard isn't sustainable or enjoyable. Open, honest, respectful communication - also known as conscious communication is the foundation for all healthy & enjoyable relationships...and for life!
If you're looking to be heard, consider attending my communication workshop next week. You'll learn a model of conscious communication to help you get your message across, and get what you want, without all the drama both in personal and professional relationships. Details here.
When things heat up this summer, in addition to drinking plenty of fluids, preferably water, there are other ways to keep your energy levels balanced.
First, what do we mean by balanced energy?
No question we are living in tumultuous times. There is much change, and as such many of us are feeling the effects. If you are an em-path, you are feeling the effects even more.
Whether we feel the effects physically, mentally and/or emotionally, it all comes down to energy. As a result, some of us feel drained, tired...lazy, not motivated and we need to gain energy.
Others of us feel wired and perhaps even scattered and unable to focus. As such our energy needs to be pulled back or "in" and re-directed.
How do we bring energy back into balance?
With an Energy Healing Session. During a session, the intention is to restore energy back to balance.
At BWS we offer Shamanic Energy Healing Sessions with Stephanie and Reiki Healing Session with Maggie.
While both are forms of energy healing, there are differences. The truth is, to feel the difference, you have to experience a session. Afterward, you will know what resonates with you.
In the meantime, Stephanie explains Shamanic Energy Healing as a way to deeply uncover, uproot and reset the entire body in order to live the life we were meant to live - a JOYFUL one. As she shares in Chapter Two of her book Reclaiming JOY,shamanic energy healing helped Stephanie release her fear of living the life she desired.
Maggie describes Reiki Energy Healing as raising your vibration level, helping you move out of whatever feels "stuck" into a place of expansiveness, freedom and choice. Summer is a time for play, and Reiki can help you connect to your inner child.

Shamanic Energy Healing Benefits, by Stephanie
When someone comes to me for a shamanic session, we start with WHY.
What it comes down to for most of us is wanting to feel: peace, stable, protected and nourished.
Why do we want to feel these things?
Because we are experiencing their opposite: stress, not grounded, unhappy, vulnerable, confused, disconnected, alone...to name a few.
How do we end up feeling this way?
By being human and getting caught in habits that no longer serve us. There are many habits so I will share the top 5: lack of awareness, endless doing, resistance to change, absorbing and then emitting negative energy (em-paths!), fear. Note to em-paths- April Workshop will be "Walking With Protection".
What can we do?
Change our habits!! At the root level = energetic level.
So, when people ask me how shamanic energy healing helped me change my habits, I invite them to experience one of the 3 sessions I offer. The next question after that usually is, which one is "best"?
Here's what I will say, try not to over think.
Pay attention to what you are emotionally drawn to and try it.
For those needing more mental explanation, kindly note:
1. Shamanic Reading- Best for getting a surface level sense of your obstacle and some ways to overcome. A snapshot if you will.
2. Shamanic Chakra Balancing- Best for receiving wisdom and also experiencing relaxation and clarity. In addition to above, I will clear and re-balance your chakras so you feel lighter and empowered. Also a great way to get to know me before we dive deeper together into a...
3. Shamanic Energy Healing Session- Best for those who are saying "I am ready and willing to change habits once and for all in order to fully enjoy life". If you aren't sure what I mean by enjoying life- read my blog here. This session includes all of the above at a deeper/root level to bring about lasting, positive, healthy transformation. Multiple sessions are suggested as we will be co-creating your future.
Note: I offer all of the above in person and via phone.
Remember: we are working at the energetic level which means there is no need to be physically together. In fact, some of the most powerful work I've done is via phone because the physical can be distracting. When we work at the energetic level, it is the deepest level, allowing us to get to the "root". While it may be more intense at first, it is more effective, less work in the long run, and faster than tackling it from the mental/emotional. It is also incredibly empowering as we learn to become self-referencing...our own best teacher :) Once we change at the energetic level, the physical, mental, emotional follows suit. It's why I LOVE it!!! LOVE.

Questions? Awesome! Please email me directly.
Sadness, guilt, low self-esteem, loss of interest in people and activities, sleep and appetite disturbances... these are the hallmarks of depression, a serious condition that affects 400 million people today.
As we've talked about, we advocate holistic treatment alternatives to mainstream treatment of mental health conditions, including PTSD, anxiety and panic attacks.
The Top 3 Services we offer at the Sanctuary for Boosting Mood and Alleviating Depression:
Did you know that regular massage helps depression? Several studies have found that massage lowers cortisol levels (the stress hormone) up to 50%, and can raise serotonin and dopamine, neurotransmitters that stabilize our mood. The result is less anxiety, a better outlook on life, improved sleep, and fewer aches and pains, another symptom of depression.
Yoga is another fantastic way to alleviate depression. Not only is there plenty of anecdotal evidence (just talk to anyone who has a regular yoga practice!) but research backs this up as well. Various studies have found that yoga improves mood, outlook, distress, anxiety, anger, hostility, stress, physical pain, and more. Heart opening poses and inversions are particularly effective.
Energy Healing- Reiki and Shamanic- can be beneficial to clients with depression in multiple ways, and this has now been backed up by research as well. Published studies have found that people who receive regular energy healing sessions have improved symptoms of depression, which continue after treatment has ended. Some of the benefits of energy healing sessions for people who suffer from depression include: improved in mood, decreased feelings of shame, guilt, and sadness; a significant lowering of anxiety (both short term and long term); improvement in relationships and interpersonal effectiveness; and increased energy/less burnout.
