These past few months have been full of an intense amount of transformation, spiritual upgrades, and profound loss & change. I have moved my full-time shamanic practice from Baltimore County down to Columbia, MD, and am expanding it to include more Beginning Shamanic Journey classes, Reiki Attunement classes, and Shamanic Mentoring appointments.
I am also starting the deep, exciting, and daunting work of writing a book. I've presented my lecture, Differentiating Between Mental Illness and Visionary Spiritual Experiences, for a solid three years. It has expanded from 1.5 hours to a day-long workshop, and I've even started making an Assessment/Checklist for psychologists, clergy, and other spiritual leaders. There are many articles about this subject, but they are written by either journalists, advocates, and/or spiritual healers (less than 2% written by social workers, sadly). My background in public mental health (13+ years) gives me a different perspective, and a different sort of grounded insight into this topic. I am very excited to share my training and experience with others, and can't wait to get started!
