SPiritual Guidance Work
Shamanic-style Spiritual Guidance and Companionship for Healing, Wisdom, and Growth
You are a passionate person who is committed to living with a purpose and in deep connection to Living Spirit. You drive yourself hard, but also cherish your relationships with your family, friends, animal companions, and the natural world.
You consider yourself to be down to earth and spiritually-focused and you also feel a nagging tug that there is more to explore in your life. Perhaps you crave a deeper sense of your personal mission or a more constant and communicative relationship with the world of nature and spirit. Perhaps you feel like your life is running on auto-pilot and you deeply desire to reconnect with your own wild and natural rhythms.
Through shamanic-style journey work, I am honored to interact with the Spirit Helpers on your behalf to seek guidance, wisdom, and insight to help you deepen your spiritual gifts and live your life in a way that honors Living Spirit and your truest path.
Possible types of sessions (depending on the guidance from the Spirit Helpers):
- Wisdom and Insight – For life purpose issues, parenting, relationships, and other challenges, I will meet with the Spirit Helpers on your behalf. This is mature insight. The Helpers offer no-nonsense clarity, pointing out core dynamics and recommending change on a foundational level. Layers are woven within the session that will often serve as a compass for years to come.
- Soul Retrieval– Trauma, loneliness, loss of a loved one… experiences like these can cause our souls to fragment. Parts of our authentic energy “check out” and we become less engaged in life. Soul retrieval work can help to welcome parts of our souls back into our lives and learn to value what they have to offer.
- Personal Healing– A powerful avenue for growth is through open-intention sessions. This is when I interact with the Spirit Helpers on your behalf, inviting them to lead the way in addressing what will most help your forward movement in life. The Helpers never tell us “what to do” which interferes with our own personal authority. Rather, they support us in seeing clearly and making good decisions in light of Wisdom.
- Personal Ceremony– With the guidance of the Spirit Helpers, personal ceremonies can mark transitions and milestones, solidify personal choices, and provide energy and commitment to changes and personal growth. Personal ceremonies can be creative, unique, and profoundly inspiring and can emerge during a shamanic-style journey session.
- Shamanic-style Journey Training– If you are interested in learning to do shamanic-style journeys on your own, the Spirit Helpers may share ideas and inspirations for you to broaden and deepen your own ability to connect with them directly. Learning and cultivating this skill is a long-term, committed endeavor. For those of you wishing to dig into this deeply, you might be interested in my 9-month mentoring intensive.
How the sessions work:
- Our sessions take place on the phone and are conducted in a conversational, low-key format. I will speak the session aloud so you can hear everything that happens. There is no loss of energetic support and presence through distance shamanic sessions. In fact there is often a deeper connection. This is because interaction by voice and energy is often stronger without the distraction of the physical. It is important to have privacy for your session and to schedule at least 15 minutes to relax and prepare. A time for integration afterward is also important. A quality telephone headset is a very good idea but not crucial for single sessions or short series.
- You are an active player in these sessions, talking and sharing your thoughts and questions as we go.
- Each session lasts an hour or so and you will receive an audio recording after each one. It is good to plan additional time, however, as some sessions may take longer (depending on the Spirit Helpers guidance) and it is also good to have time afterwards to reflect.
I am experienced, skilled, and passionate about offering an authentic and personal experience and I offer a few ways to experience this work.
Single sessions are much more involved for each of us, so I recommend working in small packages. If a single session is preferred, we can certainly chat about that possibility. Working together long term is one of the most powerful ways to experience this work and the deeply rich insights it can provide. Building a long-term relationship also allows us to go to deeper places and find our natural rhythm of working together.

What this work is not:
- A “quick fix
- A “crystal ball” type session; this work is about deep, personal transformation and requires an open mind and heart and the willingness to do the work needed on your end as well
Please feel free to contact me to set up a no cost, no pressure, initial phone call to further discuss your interests and see if we might be a good fit to work together. I very much look forward to connecting!
For those of you wanting to deepen your own skills or experience a deep dive into your spiritual path:
If you’d like to receive consistent guidance and interact clearly and directly with Living Spirit, your Spirit Helpers, and the spiritual realm, I offer a 9 month intensive mentoring program to help you develop your own skills and to offer you the space for a wildly deep and personal journey with the world of spirit.
Sessions are provided for those who want strong spiritual connection and personal balance as well as for those who have a passion for helping others through direct connection with Living Spirit and the Spirit Helpers.

More about the work…
Our connection to the more-than-human world can be a wonderful way to directly experience Living Spirit and a sense of ourselves as part of a larger whole.
Philosophies of shamanism are multi-cultural and complex. My use of the word and its derivatives relates to a deep and sacred connection with life and spirit and the ability to commune with the spiritual realm for the benefit of ourselves, and our human and more-than-human communities.
“Deb shared with me a line from her Helper that I have used every day to step out of my own head, my worries, and my fears. I realized that it’s okay to put aside my biggest fear and still be of service. She helped me take a leap forward in service. The session opened a door for me—it’s like a new dimension opened up in terms of capability in what I could do or not do. And even today, I still use that line as a guiding light. It’s become part of my everyday prayer and it’s how I begin my day actually. And after that, I just let the guidance flow. The session wisdom that Deb shared has allowed the guidance to reach me in a way that it could not before because the fear would just block it off. If I were to summarize the benefits of my time with Deb it’s that she’s helped me take a leap forward in service, listen better to guidance, and offer a pathway to overcoming one of my biggest fears and a whole new way in thinking. Thank you Deb!” – N.A.. New York City
