The time has never been better to immerse yourself in this material!

In the context of our current reality we often suffer from chaotic, low-frequency energy in ways that cause us to suffer illness, depression, pain, and a host of other issues that require significant attention.

Ancient peoples had methods for healing beyond our scope of imagination in today’s world. These methods are effective, thorough, and long-lasting because they focus on you as an energy system and address healing through energy medicine techniques.

Each of us is an energy system—holistic and fully integrated. Our energetic system was designed by the cosmos to operate perfectly and to be capable of constant regeneration. What is missing are the practices, ceremonies and awareness of that truth.

Ageless shamanic techniques can be applied to any situation.

The possibilities are endless.

Join LightSong for the Live ONLINE course as we explore how to:

The energy generated from “like minds gathered together” shifts the collective at a quantum frequency. Personal purpose is discovered and generates feelings of elevated fulfilment from being part of a larger community of well beings.

What our community members say…

The Level II Shamanic Training class went gloriously beyond my furthest expectations. I met and connected with so many beautiful, kind-hearted, and loving people, in surroundings which were profoundly healing and uplifting. Living each day with the intention to connect with, and learn from, the guiding spirits brought me deep healing and pure joy. I now take time everyday to greet, thank, and honor the spirits, as well as seek their guidance. It’s been amazing how those seemingly simple actions have turned my hectic days at work into peaceful joyful days.
I joyfully look forward to seeing everyone again as I continue on this path to becoming my true self. I will never forget the connections I've made, and the deep healing I received. I am very grateful the spirits guided me to LightSong and paved the way for me to attend these courses.

Cathleen Carroll

I express the most sincere gratitude for the teachings provided in the LightSong level 2 class. All the lessons provide invaluable tools and perspectives, but perhaps the most profound application of the material occurred a mere two weeks ago.

I was on a business trip abroad when I received work (via Facebook of all places), that my very dearest friend from college had passed away unexpectedly, leaving behind a husband and 2 young children. My phone had been turned off due to international fees, so I had missed the call from her family and texts from grieving friends. Most notable, was that a mutual friend expressed great concern to me that Jen’s soul would be lost or confused due to her sudden departure from her body.

Aha, I thought! I know how to handle this!!! So THANK YOU. First and foremost, for transcending my understanding and outlook about death and dying. Second, for providing the tools to help us, the ones left behind, to feel productive, capable and empowered to help in an energetic and spiritual way. And third, for teaching us how powerful words and language are.

All of these things completely shaped my response to these circumstances, and I was able to shift focus from the brevity of life and the sense of loss to a celebration of life, love and healing. This would not have been possible 2 years ago, and LightSong has been life-altering.

Amy Gunn

I am so thankful for Spirit leading me to LightSong! I completely feel myself becoming a hollow bone through which Spirit may travel. The Level 2 class was so incredible. This has been the largest spiritual shift in my life so far. It truly is like our group has filled a longing deep in my soul.  I am now a storyteller, a lover of each day, the confident protector and nurturer of my children, and am more fully loving myself and my many wonderful qualities/gifts. This shift is so great that my whole body is shifting and shedding.
