The shamanic path is a way of living, of being to me. It is a conscious decision to seek a closeness to nature, a connection to spirit and ancient wisdom, to find my part in the bigger picture and live a life embracing this connectedness. I'm originally from Germany but my life's path brought me to County Louth in Ireland over 15 years ago and also to my shamanic teachers and tribe which are wonderful people and helped me to embrace my inner calling. Through several years studying Celtic and Andean Shamanism I have learned to embrace my own ancestors wisdom and answer their calling inside me. My practise is therefore influenced by all of these and If I was asked which kind of Shamanism I practise, I would call it Rainbow-Shamanism, a description used by Jan Fries which I find very fitting. As shamanism is not a religion but a spiritual practise which exists in various cultures, this is not a contradiction to me. Since I follow the shamanic path I feel I'm being true to myself and I learned to value my own personal journey in life and to connect with my ancestors teachings.
My shamanic teachers told me to trust my inner medicine, follow my intuition and work with the tools given to me. Heading these wise words has brought me a long way, connecting to spirit, healing my wounds and turning them into wisdom to help others to heal too. During my spiritual journey, I have always been driven to learn a wider holistic approach to healing, trying to understand and use different techniques and to use them as best as possible. As part of this path, I have completed my training as a Shamanic Practitioner, Reikimaster, Holistic Diet-Nutritionist, embraced the wisdom of the Runes and currently study Master Herbalism and Sound healing. I love the Shamanic healing work and Ceremonies but also have a special calling to create Shamanic tools and objects especially from wood. My father was a carpenter and so was his father and his father. The line of carpenters in my family is long and when I work with wood it is like fulfilling my families inheritance on my fathers side as there is a special connection, nearly a conversation between the piece of wood which was part of a tree and me. I'm very thankful to be able to live this life, follow this path, live my dream and to have friends who share it with me - animals and humans alike.
