The word “shaman” originates in Siberia and means “one who sees in the dark”. The term refers to a traditional healer or medicine person trained in indigenous and nature-based healing practices. Shamanism is the world’s oldest healing and spiritual path with practices that respect and work seamlessly with all cultures and belief systems.

A core belief in shamanism is that everything – whether stone, plant, animal or human – is imbued by Spirit or life-force energy. Sometimes imbalances of this life-force can occur because of the presence of energetic intrusions, a loss of personal power or the fragmenting of soul parts. From a shamanic perspective, these imbalances originate at the spiritual level. A general feeling of fatigue, unease or even physical illness is often the result.

Crystals and ShellsThe ‘shamanic journey’ is a time-tested method for accessing knowledge and receiving guidance during sessions. The Journey carries a practitioner outside of time and space into what is known as Non-Ordinary Reality. This is done to retrieve information and visions. Journeying can be done to find answers to all sorts of questions. It is often undertaken by shamans and shamanic practitioners on behalf of the client with the intention of restoring their personal power and authority.

Shamanic consultations and healing work involves identifying the causes of a client’s energetic imbalance. Various non-invasive and intuitive methods can then be used to help restore understanding, harmony and well-being on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Artist CJ Shelton is a Shamanic Practitioner trained in the Algonquin tradition by Pete Bernard of the 8th Fire School of Algonquin Medicine Work and is a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids.

MARI® “Soul Symbol” Self Discovery Mandala Interpretation Sessions with CJ Shelton

Mandala Drawing 2Mandalas can be ‘read’ or interpreted like a story. The colours, patterns and symbols used can reveal all sorts of things about a person’s personality and what is going on in their life. This is the language of the soul and an in-depth one-on-one interpretative session can help access your intuitive wisdom, providing guidance that comes from your own subconscious.

The MARI® Card System (Mandala Assessment Research Instrument) is a creative self-discovery and assessment tool based on symbols and colours that provides a visual picture of your pysche. Mandala artist CJ Shelton is a Certified MARI® Practitioner and Teacher in Training.

The process begins with drawing a mandala. No art experience is necessary and this stage can be skipped by those not comfortable doing art. The client then intuitively matches a series of symbols with colours. With the practitioner’s guidance, the meaning of the symbols and colours chosen are discussed in-depth.

This process is simple, fun and effective. It can assist you in finding solutions to questions you are currently living with by revealing what your deep unconscious self already knows the answer to.

COST: $160 for a 2 hour session
Fee includes mandala making, art materials, MARI reading and a short written follow-up synopsis
