A BIT OF MY JOURNEY till now …. Questions are always welcomed.
I have been studying shamanism for 13 years. In 2004 the need for sobriety brought me to healing through ceremony and shamanism, for that I am extremely grateful. Having lived with an addictive personality and depression most of my life, I had finally found the healing modality that worked for me. Starting with a one year addiction program, and then apprenticing to continue studying. I started my training with the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society based in Scottsdale Arizona and continued to certification through The Institute of Shamanic Medicine in Canada.
In 2007 combining my passions of art (michelefireriverheart.com) and healing work, I created ‘Joy Infusion’. A company providing healing art workshops. Self-created and facilitated, these workshops were designed for people to have fun with no art experience. The added bonus, healing opportunities. Offering many workshops from Sacred Self Mask Making to Land art workshops, creativity abounded and healing happened.
I started a healing practice in 2012 under the name Galago Healing, which transitioned into HEALING through CEREMONY at the beginning of 2017 due to being called by spirit to do end of life work. I have taken Home Funeral Practicum education: Encompassing pre-death organization, to sacred preparation of the body after death, through to death ceremonial rites.
I am the co-creator of the non-profit Gabriola Community DeathCare Collective. We offer education on the subject of Deathcare. Presently we are working to establish a green cemetery on Gabriola Island, and are in the planning stages of bringing artists from our community to offer workshops for the creation of personalized coffins, urns and shrouds. I am also one of the facilitators of the Gabriola Death Cafe each month.
Healing work is where I choose to make impact in this world. Healing ceremonies are a passion for me, and when I am gifted with seeing the shift in my clients being, it just makes my day. Whether it is in my role as a celebrant or shamanic coach.
I also offer: Shamanic Healing, Energy Healing, Rites of Passage ceremonies & Rituals
I live on an island, in a little cottage in the forest with the ocean at my feet.
I have dreamed well and I am grateful.
