About The Teacher

In 2009 I read an article on Shamanism that literally changed my life forever...

Before 2009 I was delving deep into Re-Birthing Breath Work, Yoga, Meditation and Metatron Angelic & Theta Healing for I felt a deep need for more healing. Nothing seemed to infiltrate deep into me to help me reach joy and peace. Until I stepped onto a Shamanic Path. It was after my first Shamanic Ceremony that I truly woke up and felt love. 

As a child, I could see, feel and hear Spirits, I could see deeply into people and see past their pretense and feel their emotions and thoughts.

In 2009 after I read an article on Peruvian Shamanism I knew deep within my heart I had to go and meet these mysterious beings. I was searching for a deeper meaning to my life, to move into a place of love and peace, to have less conflict within myself and my life. On the outside my life looked good, highly successful with a job as a Planning Manager in London, inside I was deeply unhappy.

On my first encounter with a Shaman on my first trip to Peru, I knew I wanted to change my whole life. The Shaman entered the room humbly in such peace and love it literally took my breath away. I had grown up believing that power was brought forth in dominance until that day...

On returning home I started training with Simon Buxton at the Sacred Trust in the UK learning European Shamanism. I was also attending & organizing Ceremonies with Atasha Jenita Wacha in London. And with Shamans from Mexico and Peru in Essex.

After acquiring knowledge and healing training in European Shamanism I embarked on The Medicine Wheel for my heart yearned for more knowledge on Shamanism from South America, I trained with Skie Hummingbird from Sungate in the UK. Whilst training I embarked on trips to South America to train with different Shamans with the Master Plants.

I have also trained in Celtic Shamanism at Lendrick Lodge in Scotland with Peggy Dylan & Stephen Mulhearn. Others Shamans I have trained with reside in the UK, Scotland, Spain, Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador & LA. I am eternally grateful for these teachings. On a Shamanic Path, you are forever the student receiving training as you walk through your life - you are never done. Being an eternal student takes you from the ego of thinking you know everything, to seeing clearly that you are here to learn and grow.

Last year I found myself going up the Amazon to Papa Gilberto a true Maustro Shaman never before I have had an opportunity to heal and learn from such an experienced but genuine humble Shaman from the Shipibo tradition, he has over 60 years experience. The way he works is simple, there are no tricks or shows but a true way to work with the Medicines deep within the Amazon jungle. Such a deep honor and privilege. 

During my training's I have undergone many initiations to literally break me down, this has led to a deeper sense of myself as I have put myself back together. It has brought forth a deeper sense of joy and peace with gratefulness for life itself. I could never see my life any other way.

Shamanism delves into the grey areas, the parts of self is deeply hidden to bring up for healing. To look deep into your darkness gives a way to purge and release all that is no longer needed that does not serve your Soul. To move deeper into a new way of living your life.

Shamanism helps to bring you back to a state of wholeness using powerful Soul and Power retrieval process's and deep extraction works to release all energies no longer needed. Other aspects can come into play such as working with Master Plants, Breath-work, Theta Healing, and other healing modalities depending on what you need to heal and move into a new state of wholeness. I am a firm believer that Shamanic Healing can change your life for the better and bring you to a totally new place to seeing, breathing and being within your life. I usually like to finish each session on bringing in a manifestation to change the current, rid the past but also change the current (contact info blocked) are all creators. This is the inherent power we were all born to possess but some have forgotten along the way.

The grey areas are a good place to begin your journey without these areas there would be no room for growth and expansion of your Soul.

I love these words for which Wolf are you feeding...........

The Fight of Two Wolves Within You

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life:

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

”It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil–he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you–and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

      Power of being

    I had a major medical issue a few years back & was feeling disconnected from people, family, & life. A friend had suggested a holistic change in attitude. After contacting several retreats, they all were excited to have me until they found out I had a heart condition. Then no contact. I stumbled across Julie's site & was intrigued by what it offered. On initial contact, she was compassionate & assured me there's a variety of ways to heal & re- energize me. The retreat. All I can say is that it was life changing!! Old wounds were healed to my very core. New thoughts & ideas were learned. I came to understand the power of self love & just being. BEING! Yes. I'm enjoying that concept everyday. Experiencing this in a beautiful setting, with beautiful people is what made the retreat so special. I cannot say enough about how amazing Julie is. She is funny, thoughtful, compassionate, & truly an expert in her field. She will heal you by giving what you need, not what you want. That is an important understanding. Trust her program. It works. If you still have doubts. Don't. Just pack & go. It'll change your life. Roberto
