To Sit With a Shamanic Healer

Is in the oldest tradition of sharing our challenges and achieving breakthroughs in the company of a fellow human. In the societies of our Ancestors, the shaman was traditionally one who survived a personal health crisis, but emerged with a Spiritual awareness and a prowess in balancing energies that was of tremendous benefit to others in the community. Side by side with this function the shaman was called upon for ritual and ceremony that nourished beneficial energies for all the people, animals, plants and land.

The shaman was a “seer”, having the ability to perceive, navigate and negotiate energies ordinarily “invisible”, thus the shaman was called upon to beckon souls to be physically conceived, assist the departure of souls after physical death and every concern of a soul’s journey in between. The voices of the Ancestors, the mountains, the trees, the seas and wells were heard and relayed by the shaman. One of the ancient meanings of the word shaman, is “one who knows”.

The Benefits of an Irish Celtic Shamanic Healing Session

Illuminate

Be your challenge physical, psycho-emotional or psycho-Spiritual, they lay the path for breakthrough by taking the way of the heart. This is to seek the stages of recovery by a compassionate, luminous template.

Depth

Consequently, shamanic healing can in one or few appointments achieve what is possible after months or years of exposure to other healing modalities.

Balance

Working from the maxim that all illness is a consequence of an imbalance of energies, they track and identify that imbalance before bringing forward techniques for energy release and renewal. In essence, the challenge or issue one is experiencing is remedied from its deepest roots, that of the pure energy causing it.

What to Expect

John and Karen as contemporary shamanic healers, hold a strong honouring of the Shamanic tradition. They offer a warm, safe, empathetic, non judgemental setting for your personal healing journey.

Transformation

The shamanic tradition holds that our healing journeys require more than the achievement of new awareness of the causes of our symptoms. Our completed journey requires transformation and consolidation.

Consolidation

The blend of Energy Medicine techniques and shamanic counselling (a sensitive, perceptive programme for onward holistic development), offered by John and Karen effectively bring about that transformation and consolidation.

"To heal from the place of our Soul (in a non-religious context), to heal from the place of our Heart is a healing choice rich in indigenous wisdom."

John Cantwell

When we live a life of destiny, we are living a life chosen by us.

Divination

The ancient art of “Screeing” is when the shaman looks to his/her medicine bundle and calls upon the Spirits to bring to the surface of linear time what is already known in sacred time. From this we can find new awareness and strategy for issues in our lives that require light and clarity.

“Screeing” is also an art of calling forth from the darkness of our subconscious with the illumination of Spirit, i.e. raising what is known, but that cannot yet be told. In this sense it is true divination. When it comes to the major dilemmas and questions in our lives, we are often in a place where the energies at work in the issue have reached a place of hiding or stagnation.

Divination in the form of “screeing” is a valuable ritual and tool to create forward momentum towards realisation and resolution. Many in the world yearn for insightful wisdom that bring us closer to the answers to our questions of love, work, health, residence, personal fulfilment and development. “Screeing” is a way to lead the questioner to a place of authentic progress with a divination technique of integrity.

John also augments screeing with the stones from his mála naofa (medicine bundle) with Energy Field and Ancestral tracking, intuitive Tarot reflection and kinesiology. A divination appointment with him includes shamanic counselling and being guided into the practical steps required to apply your new learning that is a result of divination. He works subtlely from the ethos of drawing the maximum from your intuition and instinct, providing an empowerment that confirms your personal vision, self healing resources and abilities to courageously bring positive change into your life. This divination work is rooted in what the shaman calls “destiny retrieval” rather than “fate awareness”. When we live from a sense of fate, we are living a life chosen for us. When we live a life of destiny, we are living a life chosen by us.
