Shamanic Counseling is an adaptation of traditional
shamanic methods for a modern counseling environment. It uses
the core technique of the Shamanic Journey to help you access
your inner wisdom and spiritual guidance. Deep within all of
us are immense resources for healing, wholeness, empowered living,
and happiness. Shamanic Counseling and Journey Work help
you access those profound resources, giving
you tools for life's challenging and confusing situations and
enabling you to be more effective in your everyday life.
are many Shamanic Healing practitioners who will go on a Journey
for you; what makes my work different is that you
go on the Journey, with my assistance as Guide and Witness along
the way. Because of this approach, every Journey empowers you
and grants increased access to your own inner wisdom and spiritual
guidance throughout your daily life. Instead of being dependent
on someone else to provide you healing or insight, you develop
your own skills for healing and understanding.
experiences one has while Journeying occur almost as if you
were physically there. Instead of talking or thinking about
something, you know it and feel it in your body. This felt experience
has a profound power to enact lasting emotional change in a
relatively short period of time. While this change is powerful
and often rapid, it is also gentle and supportive. Your inner
wisdom and spiritual guidance know exactly what you are ready
for and can handle, and communicate with you in ways more profound,
beautiful, and "on target" than any person could ever do. Because
Journeying is experiential, not belief-based, it works for people
of all faiths, religions, and spiritualities.
Journey Work session:
We will start a session by discussing the issues that are currently
of concern for you, and I will guide you in forming a clear
question, purpose, and intent for the Journey. Next I will verbally
assist you to enter into a different level of consciousness,
like that hovering feeling between waking and sleeping. You
then describe to me what you experience (see, hear, feel, smell,
touch, and think) and I suggest things you might ask or do during
your Journey. This may sound very simple, but it provides profound
Journey experience is full of rich imagery and messages, but
the details tend to fade if not written down (much like a dream).
I recommend having a journal on hand to write down everything
you can remember immediately following the Journey. I also recommend
that you have a little something to snack on after the Journey
to help you re-ground into your body. If the session is over
the phone, you will want a headset for your phone so you can
be comfortable throughout the Journey.
Journey lasts as long as it needs to to answer the question,
but typically doesn't last longer than one hour. Afterwards
I'm available for discussion. Although
the Journey may be an hour or less, I recommend that you set
aside two hours in order to have plenty of time to discuss,
journey, and write without anxiety about an upcoming appointment.

Have you been trying to manifest something specific in your
life for months or years and find it is just not happening?
Using a rich model of the creative process developed from my
work with the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, I will help you discover
and address the issues that are hindering your intentions and
keeping your from successfully reaching your goals. Then I will
teach you practical and spiritual exercises that will help you
clear away that which is blocking your path, allowing you to
release your creative flow. No previous knowledge of Kabbalah
is necessary to benefit from this work.

and the suggested exercises at the end of the session. A CD

Sometimes you need to get a bird's eye view of a problem. Or
perhaps you need a map of the paths through the forest. Tarot
divination is ideal for these situations. A tarot reading starts
with a discussion of your question(s), during which I will custom
design a card spread with you to find exactly the information
you are looking for. Next I lay out the cards and describe what
I see. This is done as an interactive discussion to ensure the
clarity and usefulness of the answers.

"Cesar's presence and words lent
a very grounded and safe feeling to the experience, and his questions
and suggestions felt wise and helpful, yet the experience was still
fully mine. The images that came, the interactions, the flow, all
surfaced spontaneously from within me, and he remained true to what
was happening, allowing it to be mine, while also providing strength
"My journey stays with me to this day. Particular images come forth at helpful moments and take me back, even in my body, to that moment in the journey and I remember fully. I remember the messages I received, and they resonate anew. These full-body memories help ground me and give me strength and energy. And I so appreciate the tools Cesar gave me to be able to spontaneously call upon my experience - I have used them so many times."
