Imagine a time when there is a need for Healing to occur for yourself.  A deep, confusing mix of emotions and thoughts surround the wound.  It’s systemic and palpable and affecting you on many levels.  How do you help yourself?  How can you help another moving through a crisis?  How can you set the stage for transformation to occur within yourself or another?


During this intense experiential Shamanic Medicine program, you will learn how to set the stage for Transformation to occur for not just yourself, but others and the Earth as well.  This year-long mentorship journey will require you to look deeply within yourself, partner with some very powerful, ancient Spirit Helpers, and re-birth yourself via initiatory experiences into your personal Truth.  


We will also explore how the Sacred is seen and worked with from various different cultures including Mayan, Peruvian, Lakota, Ancient Egyptian, Celtic, Siberian, Christian, and more. 


During the year-long Medicine Journey, we will explore the following topics intimately:

•    The Shamanic Journey – how to access the Spirit World and your Helping Guides for healing, insight, and more.

•    Transformational Tools – Medicine techniques you will learn and apply to yourself and others to set the stage for Transformation 

•    Heart Medicine – how to open to Love deeply, healing surrounding the giving and receiving of Love, and the Transformational Power of Heart Medicine for yourself and others

•    Fire Medicine – Bringing in the Light to dispel darkness, illusion, and fear for yourself and others

•    Water Medicine – Using flower water ceremonies to assist with grief, loss, fear, and much more

•    Divination Tools – various techniques to facilitate the opening of messages from Spirit for healing, insight, and transformation

•    Crossing Over Ceremony – an in-depth look at suffering spirits and how to create a sacred space for their healing and transformation


Homework and exercises will be assigned on both a group level and individual level.  This is a necessary and ancillary part of the course.  The individual homework is provided on an as-needed basis for your personal growth and evolution within the program.


We will meet in person once a month typically on the second Saturday of each month beginning at 12 Noon and ending around 6pm.  We will commune for additional teachings via a monthly conference call at a time convenient for all participants.


Benefits and access to this Medicine Program are in the following ways:

•    Online private group for questions, sharing of experiences, and more 24/7

•    Access to Shamanic Medicine Program graduate community to share with and learn from

•    Monthly conference call

•    Access to Denise directly via email, phone, FaceTime, Skype, and text 24/7 to support and mentor you through your personal transformation

•    TWO Private 1:1 Blossom Sessions to aid in your personal transformation


The investment for this powerful and transformational program is $197/month.  Discounts are available when investment is received in one lump sum.  Financial assistance is available and determined on an individual basis.


After completion of this program, participants will have the skills required for a deep communion with their Sacred Guidance, as well as a plethora of lighter shamanic medicine therapies to utilize for themselves or others.  All participants will have an opportunity to continue their studies in Part Two of this Course: The Awakening.  Part Two will be focused upon deepening relations with the Spirit Helpers for traditional and non-traditional powerful therapeutic treatments, teachings, and ceremonies that are designed for the Advanced Student.  Teachings in Part Two will include Extraction Healing, Soul Retrieval, Power Animal Retrieval, as well as cultivating a bond with the Sacred that will anchor you as One with all our Relations.
