‘Treat the earth well, it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. You did not inherit the earth from your ancestors, we borrowed it from our children’ Ancient Indian Proverb.
How many sessions will I need?
Most people will have three sessions or more. After the first session, you should feel lighter after an illumination and some extraction work if necessary. This, coupled with a trusting therapeutic relationship will pave the way towards some deeper work together.
Do I need to do anything before a session?
Keep a note of any synergetic events or synchronicity in the few days leading up to the session. Notice what issues arise for healing and record any pertinent dreams. The clearer you are about what you want to work with, the better.
What’s your lineage?
I’ve trained with Alberto Villoldo and the Four Winds Society. I’m initiated into the 4th level of the Inka mystical tradition under the tutelage of Juan Nuñez del Prado and his son Ivan,who’s lineages go back to INKARI – which is the name of the first Inca 10th century (mythical) founder of the Q’ero lineage.I’ve spent time in Peru working with a range of medicine men and women, participating in Amazonian medicine plant ceremonies and in Inka ceremonies in the High Andes.
Have you been to Peru?
In 2009, I went to Peru with a group of fellow Four Winds Graduates. It was such an adventure!, we made a pilgrimage to Q’eros. Q’eros was my teacher Don Augustine’s sacred mountain. We also spent ten days making Despacho Ceremonies with Don Augustine around the sites of the Sacred Valley near Cusco. He gave us some very powerful initiatory rites in the final days of our pilgrimage. I didn’t realise just how powerful these rites were until I got home and began to set up my shamanic practice the following year. I’m convinced they gave me the energy I needed to do that.
Since then, I have been practicing as a shamanic healer, teaching the medicine wheel and working with fire ceremonies every full moon for my community.
I’m always interested in developing my medicine and am a bridge between the UK and Peru.
Can you work with couples?
I could but I feel it’s better to see people on a 1:1 basis. I do teach groups .
What is in your Mesa?
My mesa of stones, my medicine bundle, contains wounds that have now healed, they have been through rites that connect them to my teacher, Dr. Alberto Villoldo and his teacher, through the Inca medicine peoples and their lineage. I now use my mesa for the healing of my clients, as well as for my own development.
