Janet Rodriguez is a retired psychotherapist who is predominately Mestizo, Finnic and Mayan descent. When she discovered shamanism, she witnessed that the practices have better results than the psychological or other healing methods she had been taught. Her life studies include: meditation, Mysticism, Buddhism, Christianity, Theological Reflection, Pranayama breath work, various energetic healing modalities, Reiki (Master), clairvoyant and channeling programs and a doctorate in psychology. She has worked with shamans and spiritual teachers across cultures and the U.S. and in Asia and was honored to be invited to Lakota Sundance - she considers one of the richest spiritual experiences of her lifetime. Janet has been delivering healing work for decades.
In addition to a healing practice, Janet also teaches for The Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
"These are important practices and tools to successfully maneuver in life, to be grounded, spiritually empowered and vital, particularly important when our world is undergoing intense change. The transcended spirits have a wisdom and perspective that far surpasses our own and it is most helpful to access that wisdom and guidance at this time. Know that our words and actions have greater impact than we know, and we can accomplish more than we realize, especially when we are working alongside our helping spirits. It is most important that we do not allow ourselves to be swept away by anxiety, fear, grief or anger. It's also important we don't go to sleep or numb out. With that in mind, the shamanic practices provides us with some of the most valuable tools we can access at this time. Through these practices we discover we are not alone, we have support. If you are struggling with the world's current state of affairs, I highly encourage you to read Michael Harner's Way of the Shaman and if possible, take the Way of the Shaman Basic Workshop. Get some effective and powerful tools added to your belt." - Janet Rodriguez, PsyD
