What People Are Saying
As an unconventional and independent woman, I've said "yes" to the road less traveled. Master healers have guided me and I've tended to that which has been given, experienced, observed, and dreamed. The calling has been brutal at times but has not stopped me from being a servant to our people. The land, the stars, the moon and sun, weather, animals and plants, mountains, lakes, forests, and deserts are the
heart of this specialized work. One might hear of a shaman living on the mountain, way out in the wild. That's me! Find me there, or here on this website. Return clients and giving voice to your experience helps me help others! Thank you all for your love and support.
Living Transitions Testimonials
“I want to thank you for your kind and generous help with my dad’s funerary rites. The mirror you sent and support you offered were invaluable and I will always remember your kindness. The rites are complete and he has returned to his ancestors — which fills me with gratitude and tears of joy.”
You have now helped me and my family twice with your powerful funerary ceremonies. You are a gift to our people. Because of your devotion to your spiritual path, you have been able to receive these ancient healing rituals and to be initiated by authentic shamans and lineage holders. As a result, your work is powerful, and the blessings that issue from it are immense. During both funerary rite ceremonies your integrity, careful attention and great compassionate heart were such wonderful gifts. The difference that the funerary rites made was palpable in both cases. Not only helping our loved ones make a swifter transition to the ancestral realms … but also helping us grieve, understand more clearly, be there for each other … and honor their lives more fully. Your work and offerings are truly rare and truly precious. Thank you for your courage and for all that you do."

“We thank and honor you for your help bringing forth the Young Women’s Initiation. With incredible skillfulness and amazing heart you guided and attended to our young women, holding them safe in sacred ritual as they transitioned, in their uniqueness and beauty, into womanhood. In so doing you have given the entire community profound gifts. These transformed young women not only give us all hope for the future but your work with them inspires us all to reach deeper within ourselves for the grace and the heart to give as selflessly and as joyfully as you have shown us how.” ~ SC

In my work and experience here this week, a favorite quote keeps coming to mind:
'And the day came, when the risk to remain
tight in the bud was more painful than the
risk it took to blossom.'"

“The journey of a human life is an arduous one at times. Healing, learning, growing - never ending and sometimes lonely... Through the Grace of Divine, so much help is available!

Much gratitude for Deanna's facilitation of this process.”
