Joyfully Navigate Life. THIS is what my work is about.

Illuminations, Extractions, Soul Retrievals and more, my services may have unfamiliar names, but they each have roots firmly grounded in shamanic history, cultures and lineages from around the world.

Formally trained by the instructors at the Four Winds Society Light Body School, as well as through direct study with medicine men and women of the mountain, coastal and jungle regions of Peru, I bring over 30 years of sacred journeying to each collaborative healing work session.

I invite you to Shed Your Past. Unleash Your Joy. Reclaim Your Power.™

 
 

My Promise

I will stand by you 100% as you embark on your healing journey.

I will walk with you 100% as you navigate your healing journey.

I will hold space for you 100% when you stumble on your healing journey.

I will hold my own space 100% and refrain from taking on your stuff so that you receive the most benefit from your healing journey.

I will share with you the power tools I myself have received to facilitate your healing journey.

I will maintain the highest vision for your well-being as you dream your new world into being.

I will bid you a joyful farewell when Life invites you to take flight and thrive.


 

 

Shamanic Services. Potential Outcomes. Scheduling Options.

 

In my experience, there are three basic reasons to employ the services offered by a Shamanic Healing Practitioner: Prevention, Protection and Progress. For instance, the Bands of Power help to protect your personal energy field by filtering out heavy energies, intrusive entities and unsolicited negative influences while still allowing positive life experiences and energies to freely enter and nurture you and your journey. However, if there is already a seed of imbalance; imprint, blockage, trauma or entity lodged within the energy blueprint of the body, Illuminations are a great way to do some energetic deep cleansing and clearing to prevent the manifestation of unwanted experiences. And finally, when you are ready to let go of the past and call in your next best self, a fire ceremony provides an opportunity for rapid transformation and progress towards your soul’s destiny.

Through private work sessions and upon completing the recommended “homework”, a client can stride through limiting beliefs and habits and come out feeling lighter, clearer and ready for more life. At that point, the path is clear and space is made for manifesting exactly what one wants.

I invite you to explore the work I currently offer:

 

Shamanic services for Prevention, Protection and Progress


Jaguar Fight-or-Flight Reset
Reset the body’s fight, flight or freeze stress response and return the energy system to its natural state of rest, digest and play, a state in which the body, mind and spirit are capable of healing themselves. An outstanding basic care and preventative energy medicine technique for those who tend to hold stress in their energetic, mental, emotional and physical bodies.

Illuminations for Imprints
A site-specific clearing of unwanted attractor energies within the energy body and the subsequent filling of that site with the most refined and light of energies. With the clearing of unwanted attractor energies, we prevent the same types of circumstances, relationships, jobs, random events, etc. that have plagued us for years.

Illuminations for Hucha
A site-specific clearing of hucha, heavy or incompatible energies, within the energy body and the subsequent filling of that site with the most refined and light of energies. Once fully manifested, heavy or incompatible energies can take the form of unpleasant physical, mental or emotional conditions, destructive habits, imbalanced relationships and any number of things that “weigh on us” in one way or another.  Clearing such energies on the energetic level can prevent manifestation in the physical.

Extractions
The energetic removal of crystalized energies (though as of yet not materialized) or, in other cases, parasitic energetic entities.

Soul Retrievals
When trauma, unexpected tragedy, or deep frights take place, it is not uncommon for a part of the soul to split off and seek refuge deep in the heart of the Soul World. In a Soul Retrieval, the Shamanic Practitioner travels to that place of refuge to find that soul part and to bring it back, provided the client is willing to do the work to create a place of refuge for it within their earthbound energetic body and life.

Mindfulness Instruction
Stillness and self-reflection practices are powerful and very accessible tools to maximize and maintain the benefit of energetic adjustments. These are part of the “homework” I assign rather than services I provide. “Doing the work” on a daily basis is both preventative of unwanted experiences and nurturing of the life experiences we deeply desire.


Kuttis
A quick energy body clearing and protection which lasts 5-6 days. Kuttis are especially useful when faced with hostility, whether it be at work, home, in a physical location that needs its own energetic clearing or after being “slimed” by someone else’s energetic baggage.

Bands of Protection
Ancient Rites that establish energetic “smart-boundaries” that serve the recipient for life. These rites are part of the 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki.

Healers Rites
Also part of the 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki, the Healers Rites connect the recipient to vast lineages of shamans, healers and sages who have walked and completed their sacred healing journeys. These light beings offer guidance and protection to those who claim responsibility for and actively participate in their own sacred, healing journey.

Personal/Group Sacred Journey Courses
There is no better protection than doing one’s own work. These programs will take different forms. One such form is the 13-month Wolf Women Brunch series. Another is the 9 weeks of the Rites of the Munay-Ki.

Space Clearings
The energetic housecleaning of a home, work space and/or land to clear out heavy, stale and otherwise less than useful energy, including souls who have yet to successfully cross over and thus remain tied to the physical plane.

Kutti Despachos
A Peruvian clearing bundle ceremony in which we offer the heaviest and most incompatible of energies from each participant.  The Kutti Despacho is burned by the Shamanic Practitioner alone as an offering to the Pachamama, Earth Mother, who receives our waste energies as compost and food for sprouting new life. This ceremony is appropriate for situations in which heavy energy is manifesting in the form of constant "bad luck", recurring "accidents" or other persistent undesirable events, circumstances or occurrences.

Flower Baths
A sacred ritual bath with specially selected flower petals and blessed water to cleanse the entire energy body. My personal experience of this left me feeling like a newborn baby, or young child, in the loving hands of a nurturing Mother/Father. Flower baths can be performed independently, as well as proceed or follow other healing techniques. A gentle way to nurture a radiation treated body. Swimwear is optional and will in no way affect the outcome of your sacred bath.


Fire Ceremony
A fire ceremony allows us to quickly achieve desired energetic results in the same way that fire allows a piece of wood to transform back into energy much more quickly than if it was left to decompose on its own.  The Shamanic Practitioner builds, lights and tends the Sacred Fire, and assists participants to make their offerings in a good way.

The Power of Fire Ceremony

Ayni Despachos and Fire Ceremony
A Peruvian gratitude bundle ceremony in which we give breath and voice to our gratitude for all the elements of the seen and unseen world, such as the sun, the oceans, abundant crops, the stars, mountains, rivers, love, companionship, money, and on and on. All of these objects of gratitude are represented by various items such as sea shells, gold foil, glitter, raisins, and so on, and are lovingly and with great attention arranged within a wrapping paper by the Shamanic Practitioner.  
The Ayni Despacho is either burned, buried or put in a body of water by the Shamanic Practitioner and participants, depending upon the intention of the despacho. Traditionally, the intention of an Ayni Despacho, beyond expressing gratitude for all that already supports and enriches our lives, is to call in good crops, a good job, a relationship, or any number of other things we may want in our lives or in the life of our families and communities.

Space and/or Event Blessing Ceremony
Whether celebrating a new space of business or home, or welcoming a new member into the family, a blessing ceremony calls in the most refined and light of energies to power up place and people, as well as desired outcomes.

Commissioned Ceremony
When you would like to create a personal ceremony or rite of passage, we will work together to create a unique ceremony specifically tailored to your needs.

 Death Rites
A beautiful ceremony for individuals and families facing the death of a loved one, whether imminent or recent, or even ancestral.  Also useful in exploring one’s own relationship to death and the soul’s journey.

JaguaR Fight-or-Flight Reset
In-person or remote
45 minutes, $75

Bringing Jaguar Down from the Tree

Cultures of all times and places have unique ways of understanding phenomena. In the case of stress and trauma, the healers of the Peruvian Amazon region see an activated Fight-Flight-or-Freeze response as Jaguar being up the tree. Consider a frightened house cat running for its life from the neighboring dog and finding itself up a tree, arched and hissing at any sign of movement around it. That’s us after trauma and chronic stress. And many of us just cannot snap out of it.

An energetic healing technique, still used in the Amazon today, and taught in the core curriculum of The Four Winds Society Healing the Light Body School, resets our survival response by activating our parasympathetic nervous system, and the Rest-Digest-Stay-and-Play state in which the body is designed to heal itself. The Jaguar Reset technique results in a profound realignment of our shallow and disordered adrenal pulse with the energized, yet calm and deep pulse of the Earth Mother.

Jennifer did some absolutely amazing healing work for a group of combat veterans while she was living in Durango. Her ability to diminish the negative energy that comes with PTSD and shift it to a positive was not only her way of giving back to the community but has had lasting effects on the group as a whole and for the individuals who trusted her enough to receive the healing. Thank you so very much Jennifer.

Illumination
In-person or remote
90 minutes, $150

Illuminations are a site-specific clearing of heavy or incompatible energies within the energy body and the subsequent filling of that site with the most refined and light of energies. On the surface, heavy or incompatible energies can take the form of unpleasant physical, mental or emotional conditions, destructive habits, imbalanced relationships and any number of things that “weigh on us” in one way or another.  Clearing such energies on the energetic level paves the way for making lasting changes in one's life.

I want to thank you for the time you worked with me prior to my knee surgeries.  Your work calmed my fears and put me back in touch with healing energies already in my body.  You were very intuitive and I have continued to use the wisdom you imparted to me.  Your work helped me to heal much faster and at a deeper level.
 
Thank you so much!  I hope to work with you again soon.
— P. Hartman

Fire Ceremony
In-person Only
60 minutes, $100

A fire ceremony allows us to quickly achieve desired energetic results in the same way that fire allows a piece of wood to transform back into energy much more quickly than if it was left to decompose on its own.  The Shamanic Practitioner builds, lights and tends the Sacred Fire, and assists participants to make their offerings in a good way.

Client is responsible for providing the firewood. Unique and sacred option for baby showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and more.

Jennifer is a gifted and intuitive facilitator. Bringing respect and knowledge to the process and ritual of the fire ceremony. Feeling the surrounding forest come alive with her focus and shamanic way has been a pleasure to experience. Opening with gratitude to the six directions, the group is guided as a whole to bring forth their own individual intent with the support of those present. The process of releasing and manifesting are eased into with thoughtful word and chant. The feeling of simple peace and joy have at times made it difficult to remain focused on the drive home. Always look forward to her gatherings, as those involved bring great conversation and tasty treats for sharing afterwards.
Thank you Jennifer for bringing your knowledge and smiling face to our area !

Participating in Jenny’s Anyi Despacho Ceremony was a beautiful gift for my daughters and myself. I left feeling so rejuvenated and grateful. It was especially heart-warming to watch my daughters, who are often quite reserved, so openly and confidently participate in the ceremony. It was as if the ceremony itself drew them in and held them in a safe place. I am so grateful that Jenny is offering these ceremonies to the community, as I feel that they are integral to a healthy human existence.

Jenny became a quick friend & a beacon of the warmest light of peace for my 5 yr old son!! She has been able to help us in so many ways; but I specifically wanted to highlight her work on our house clearing.
Being able to experience her knowledge, compassion, & strength in that process was truly a gift! She was able to recognize where our home needed the most attention to close up & clear out some not so desirable things, (which were targeting my son in his sleep). Jenny’s dedication to clear and cleanse our home gave my son relief & a sense of security again. Since our house clearing, my son has been able to sleep through the nights without waking up crying in terror & without being harmed, or waking up having marks on his body.
Jenny is someone we absolutely value, hold dear & are so blessed to know!

Ecstatic Dance challenges all of my insecurities. I go into each session rigid with fear of judgment from the past month’s struggles, but through Ecstatic Dance I leave with a sense of calm, confidence and freedom. It allows me to express my true self through dance, and thus connect with people on a deeper level. I highly recommend Ecstatic Dance to all who have internal barriers they desire to break down

Jen’s gift is one of honour, respect, love, and thanksgiving. It is far greater than the ever popular “Secret” amplified. Her beautiful spirit serves as the bridge walker traveling to other realms with gifts of praise and gratitude. As you move with her, the magic unfolds an understanding of the true nature of life. You return with a sense of knowing,  joy, and peace.  And in the days that follow, you realize that your dreams and desires have become manifest!!!!

I have been honored to work shamanically with Jennifer for a number of years. When I first met her, I knew she was magic! With such profound love, grace, and enduring strength she tends to healing needs. She has beautiful intuition and great tracking skills.

I attended a despacho in approximately December of 2014. I was somewhat apprehensive at first about participating. I am a practicing Catholic and wasn’t sure if this might be something I wanted to experience. After mentioning it to my Parish priest, he encouraged me to attend pointing out that Pope John Paul II gave his Blessing to a shaman conducting a despacho in the southwest during one of the Pope’s tours of the US. My experience was very heartwarming and I’m glad that I went. I shared the experience with my Parish priest, he was glad to hear of my experience also. Thank you to Jenny for the great work that she’s doing.
— Bill
Jennifer and I worked together some years ago, as we were both learning shamanic healing practices. Jennifer was so open and present as she worked with me and an issue I was having at the time. I found her to be warm and very intuitive as well as proficient in the practice.
It has been a real joy to watch, even from afar, Jennifer’s journey on the path of becoming who she is...you can see enlightenment in her eyes and a genuineness in her lovely smile. I wish you much love my friend!

Ecstatic dance allows me to express myself without exposing myself to the judgmental glances of others. The freedom I feel during ecstatic dance allows me to let go of my own limiting assumptions about what proper dance is.
