A transformational voice for wildlife and the Earth
I speak live and virtually to interfaith congregations, Earth-centered spiritual organizations, healing arts practitioners, and climate and wildlife activists. In my inspirational talks, I engage you with spiritual storytellingand practical teachings for transformative take-aways.
My ministry is centered in spiritual ecology and our relationship with wildlife. My inspirational talks encourage a loving relationship with nature as a path to healing. I weave in stories from my own experiences as a shamanic practitioner, Pagan, and wildlife rehabilitator. I share teachings from Shamanic Reiki and environmental education.
