The call for deep inner work is the absolute answer in how to manage your life in a powerful and empowered way in today’s world.

As you are aware, our world is undergoing a radical transformation. As a healer, I am inundated with distress calls from people who are attempting to manage the extreme losses that feel all-encompassing in many people’s lives. People are crying out for change: change in the world, in the economy, in the environment and mostly in their own personal situations. What I have found is, developing a different perspective about yourself and about what is happening will catapult you into an arena of energetic immunity, health, and well being.

My goal, along with my colleague Karen Hefner, is to offer a service to help you during these times. We are here to give you a perspective that will empower you beyond your wildest imagination. This testimonial says it all:

I went from devastation and contemplating leaving the Earth, to a place of gratitude, empowerment, and excitement about my new life. Words do not express the thankfulness I hold for the material in this course and how it has changed my life. Actually given me life! ~ Betta Horn

What our community members say…

Your course was incredible!!! I’m 64 and had lost hope of ever discovering my true, authentic self and being able to let go of the binds that tied me. I’ve read soooo many self-help books, tried talk therapy, support groups, acupuncture, hypnosis and other other (supposedly) “life-changing” courses all with no significant measure of success. I thought I would try Just One More Thing. This course was EXACTLY what I needed!!!  Every exercise was positively intense and surprising. I have gained insight into my personality, talents and the journey my soul has been on. My goals and dreams have been re-directed to a path and purpose that truly fits me. I feel a strength, power and determination I have never experienced before and I am excited to pursue life in ways I will thrive, rather than just survive. I see my future self as an amazingly significant being with a bright, shining spirit that can influence and enhance others lives. I exited the workshop as a different person - full of that I could not ever have imagined before the Magic infused with me 🙂

I appreciate you! Love, light and hugs,

While living in Portland I was fortunate enough to study extensively with Lightsong, which changed my life, and I hold Jan and Karen in highest esteem. I now live quite some distance away and was excited to hear about their plans to bring their knowledge and teachings through this highly accessible format. The concepts are presented in a clear and easily digestible format and there is a wealth of additional reference material and fun exercises. Whether you are a seasoned energy worker or approaching this realm for the first time, this course has the potential to be life changing. Leap in!!

About The Course Teacher

Jan Engels-Smith MEd, ShD, LPC

The beginnings of my connection with shamanism and energy medicine began years before I even knew what a shaman was. My husband and I were living in Dallas, Texas with three small children and I had an active practice as a professional counselor. The experience that changed all that was an apparition I had of an old Native-American woman who materialized in my living room. I walked into my living room and she was standing there. I was shocked! When I approached her and asked who she was, she replied:

I am you,

I am your mother,

I am your sister,

I am your grandmother,

I am the Earth.

She had gray hair pulled back tightly in a bun, and her skin was wrinkled and weathered by life. She was wrapped in a wool blanket, smoking a pipe. She asked if I wanted to join in the sisterhood, but warned me that my life would be forever changed. I was scared, perplexed and alarmed at her presence, but a crow outside my living room window kept cawing and with each caw I heard the word “trust.” I nodded my head and replied, “Yes.”

I remember being extremely nervous, but there was a peculiar kind of strength surrounding and supporting me. She handed me the pipe and we smoked it together, passing it back and forth. When we finished, she spoke again. “Your guidance will be provided. Your medicine that you carry is North: Wisdom, Healing, and Love. Begin now to learn to understand the Ways.” I turned away, responding to a sound behind me, and when I turned back, the old woman was gone. 

The apparition left me bewildered, confused and concerned for my own mental health. The vision, coupled with my experiences of working in a psych ward, had me doubting what I thought of as reality. My friends, family and Sunday school class thought that the stress of my work was affecting me, and reacted to my story with concern for my mental state. Longtime friends deserted me and I began to feel isolated, judged, and unheard. The more I tried to defend and explain my experience, the crazier I sounded. My life as I knew it unraveled.

With the support of my husband, and after a series of serendipitous experiences, I ended up in Portland Oregon. I graduated from the Foundation of Shamanic studies and was adopted into a Lakota Sioux family and began the practice of energy medicine. This was the beginning of the re-creation of my life.

Karen Hefner, MS, MA, ShD

I spent my early years searching for that elusive mysterious reason for being here, the deeper meaning in life. I explored many different religions and cultures, finding commonalities and truths buried under layers of doctrine that did not work for me.

I spent my 30s practicing in a more indigenous way—and becoming involved in groups who honored life and the earth by participating in Pagan and Wiccan rituals and ceremonies, connecting deeply with Nature and the natural world.

As I approached my 40th year, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer and my life took a sharp turn into the very personal questions and experiences of life, my own mortality and how to regain my physical health.

During my cancer journey, I discovered many different healing modalities in addition to the allopathic recommendations of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. I experienced first-hand what energy medicine, in its many forms—Chinese medicine, Reiki, and shamanic healing—have to offer those seeking wholeness.

That was twenty years ago, and my healing path led me to this place of teaching, practicing, and living with an understanding of energy and spirituality that opens the doors to our innate power, the power within us that we each have access to, the truth of who we are.

I am devoted to sharing these principles and practices with others and have dedicated my life to be in service.

I hope you will join Jan and me on the journey to discover the essential laws of energy medicine that allow you to live in abiding joy, fully grounded and present to your vibrant self.
