The practice name, “The Healing Collective” was given to me in a shamanic journey in which I asked for a name that would embody my intentions, beliefs, and would clearly state the nature of the practice.
After receiving the name and reflecting on it, the wisdom of spirit impressed me once again! This name communicates 3 important messages:
- The Healing Collective is a healing center. A healing center embodies important qualities: compassionate, loving, safe, restorative and effective.
- The Healing Collective is comprised of a collective of healing modalities and healing facilitators.
- When one individual receives healing, all of life receives healing, as we are all connected in the collective of life.
Personal Bio for Shamanic and Energy Healing:
I began practicing shamanism and energy medicine in 2008 when I was strongly attracted to their spiritual and healing powers. They answered my call for healing modalities that deeply heal by healing the spiritual aspects of illness. At that time, I was working as a Registered Nurse at Boulder Community Hospital and I noticed time and time again where western medicine was limited and I knew there was more for me to learn. When one heals the deepest source of illness, balance and harmony are restored to the spirit, then healing to all parts of self can follow. We are most empowered when the whole trilogy within is fully optimized- body, mind and spirit. It is then that we thrive! Health is not merely the lack of disease, but is living in a state of harmony within self and with the external environment. Health means feeling good in your body, settled in your mind, and happy in your soul. In our modern times of living in toxic environments, good health requires learning and accessing the tools that protect us from the environment. Shamanism and energy medicine are the antidotes that I have discovered, which I am grateful and overjoyed to share with you!
Personal Bio for Integrative Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP):
As an Integrative FNP, I integrate functional medicine, shamanic healing, and energy medicine, to support client’s mind-body-spirit healing and wellness. Functional medicine specializes in identifying and treating the core imbalances in a person. It is most excellent at treating chronic, long standing conditions, auto-immune conditions, preventing future illnesses, & maintaining wellness. It effectively addresses the core, foundational aspects of healing/illness to support healing from the inside out. In this way, I consider it a shamanic way of practicing medicine! For energy medicine, I practice Eden Energy Medicine, which skillfully addresses 9 energy healing systems to work with the energy body. If one of the above healing ways is desired in isolation, either functional medicine, energy medicine, or shamanic healing, then we start there.
