"We all know we need spiritual strength in our lives to sustain us on our world path.
The circles of shamanic community give us that strength.
We invite you to join this circle."
Susan Bakaley Marshall & Chris Marshall
Through the centuries and around the world, shamanism has been a common practice for gaining knowledge and healing. Shamanism traditionally is the altering of consciousness to access spiritual realms with the intent to call on spirit power for the positive good of self, others, and all life.
Susan Bakaley Marshall is a board certified art therapist, licensed clinical professional counselor, and shamanic healing practitioner. Chris Marshall is a professor of anthropology. They have been practicing shamanism for 21 years and have taught basic and advanced classes in core shamanism for 14 years. They have studied with traditional masters of kabbalah for many years and experienced Nepali and other shamanic traditions. They are members of the Society for Shamanic Practitioners and the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. Organic gardening, growing and storing their own food and plant medicine have been part of their lifestyle for over 30 years.
Most of us can learn to evolve relationships with spirit teachers and power animals for receiving guidance and healing. The shamanic practitioner works in unison with spirit for the clients' best interest by clearing intrusions, power imbalances and doing soul retrieval.
At the Thirteenth Moon Center we offer shamanic healing, classes in shamanic techniques, and a monthly journeying circle.
