Burden of Grief: How Heavy Is Your Heart?

Shamanic Healers

Reclaim­ing Your life through the Pow­er of Soul­ful Healing

Grief is a natural and inevitable part of life, and it can be a difficult and complex experience to navigate.

When grief is left unat­tend­ed, it can take a heavy toll on your phys­i­cal, men­tal, and emo­tion­al well-being. Unat­tend­ed grief can lead to feel­ings of lone­li­ness, depres­sion, anx­i­ety, and a sense of dis­con­nec­tion from the world around you. It can also have a pro­found impact on your dai­ly rou­tines and your rela­tion­ships with loved ones.

What we are

We are mod­ern shaman­ic and grief prac­ti­tion­ers. We help bring bal­ance and heal­ing to indi­vid­u­als seek­ing a deep­er under­stand­ing of their life journey.

We address the spir­i­tu­al com­po­nents of health and under­stand that the body and mind have an innate abil­i­ty to heal when giv­en the right tools and support.

Com­bined with oth­er tra­di­tion­al med­i­cine or men­tal health ther­a­pies, shaman­ic heal­ing offers a pow­er­ful com­ple­men­tary modal­i­ty, yet it can also stand alone. It is par­tic­u­lar­ly effec­tive in work­ing with trau­ma and has been used for thou­sands of years to heal the frag­ment­ed self through the process of soul retrieval.

Our shaman­ic approach rec­og­nizes that the root cause of phys­i­cal and emo­tion­al pain often lies in spir­i­tu­al dishar­mo­ny, and by address­ing this, indi­vid­u­als will expe­ri­ence pro­found heal­ing and a renewed sense of pur­pose in their lives.

Soul Retrieval

The absence of spir­i­tu­al vital­i­ty leaves you sus­cep­ti­ble to ill health, mis­for­tunes, and unex­pect­ed mishaps. Trau­mat­ic expe­ri­ences may cause a frac­tion of your soul, your spir­i­tu­al essence to become lost.

About John

Shaman­ic Practitioner

With a heart­felt ded­i­ca­tion to spir­i­tu­al and emo­tion­al heal­ing, I’ve devot­ed my life to sup­port­ing oth­ers through their most chal­leng­ing times. Togeth­er with my part­ner, Patri­cia, we estab­lished Soul­ful Sorrows—a plat­form that empow­ers through grief lit­er­a­cy and trans­for­ma­tive heal­ing prac­tices. My back­ground in emer­gency med­ical ser­vices and deep engage­ment with shaman­ic prac­tices allow me to inte­grate tra­di­tion­al and mod­ern ther­a­peu­tic tech­niques. On our web­site, we pro­mote grief heal­ing work­shops, host month­ly grief cir­cles on Zoom, and con­duct per­son­al shaman­ic heal­ing ses­sions, help­ing indi­vid­u­als recon­nect with their inner spir­it and nav­i­gate their heal­ing jour­ney. I also host the Urban Grief Shamans pod­cast, explor­ing the inter­play between urban life, grief, and shaman­ic wis­dom and build­ing a com­pas­sion­ate com­mu­ni­ty for those seek­ing solace and strength dur­ing loss and transition.

“In the past ten years, I’ve often had the priv­i­lege of expe­ri­enc­ing the heal­ing skills of Shaman John Moir. John brings into his Shaman­ic call­ing a per­son­al desire for the well­ness of oth­ers, body and soul. His wis­dom and knowl­edge form the struc­ture of his work, but his deep, nat­ur­al com­pas­sion allows one to trust one­self to the process of heal­ing and to be drawn into renewed hope and renewed life.”

Some of our participants thoughts on their shamanic experiences

“Each ele­ment had a unique ben­e­fit. I high­ly rec­om­mend this work­shop for any­one deal­ing with grief on so many dif­fer­ent lev­els. Eye open­ing, excit­ing and pro­vides a new per­spec­tive on all liv­ing things.”

Colleen Babcock

“I found con­nect­ing with spir­it and feel­ing oth­ers pain and loss was valu­able to me. This work­shop was well done with truth, expe­ri­ence and training.”

Peggy Swanz

“Loved the direct expe­ri­ence with guid­ed sup­port. I felt safe in our lit­tle com­mu­ni­ty allow­ing me to be vul­ner­a­ble to reach into my grief”
