I have been attending events and working privately with Jnana for the past several years. She is a skilled and attuned ceremonialist with a deep connection to the lineage she carries. I would be so happy to recommend her services to anyone who seeks to understand their inner guidance and strengthen their natural gifts!
I joined Jnana first apprenticeship as a sanctioned Teacher. I would have never known it was her first hoop because of she was so comfortable in her role as our Teacher and Mentor. I have continued a friendship with her and each time I see her she is so loving, welcoming, and down to earth. What stands out to me the most about her is her desire to be of service and connect with people in a loving and supportive way. She is truly a kind soul. She's funny too!
Jnana is wonderful, empathetic, kind and down-to-Earth...it doesn't take long to feel comfortable with her and at ease to open up with one's feelings. Even if the Pachakuti tradition is new to you, the healings offered will often move the spirit and offer hope that conditions can be alleviated. I've seen Jnana numerous times and have found strength and solace in the healing practices and rituals. Jnana is insightful and helps address the physical and emotional burdens one may carry. I found the limpias (cleansing) to be very powerful and the ritual of making a despacho has released the feeling of helplessness by being able to create, visualize, a shift of positive change and intention in one's life. Very grateful to have these experiences and looking forward to the journey ahead.

About me

I have been on a spiritual healing path for over 20 years. During these many years, I've learned and shared much wisdom from the healing arts and have been assisting others on their personal transformational journeys. It is through shamanism & the desire to change that I have transformed my life, and continue to do so - and I want to share this with you.

I offer many ways to connect more deeply to your spirit, such as offering:
• One-on-one private shamanic healing sessions
• Hands on healing/energy transmission & energy clearing
• Gatherings for rituals and earth honoring ceremonies
• Shamanic classes, workshops, and 5-Part Series for shamanic apprenticeship
• Monthly new moon & full moon shamanic journey events where personal healing is incorporated

Since 2009 I have been working with the Peruvian shamanic practice, The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT). This powerful tradition has greatly helped me to come into balance. The teachings from the PMT helped me experience a deeper connection to the natural world and through this work I’ve found that I have support from the spirit realm and I realized that I am not alone. It is an honor to live on this planet with such beauty and because of this I now dedicate my life to helping others find their own transformational path.

To further my depth and commitment, in 2016 I became a Sanctioned Teacher for the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition. As a Sanctioned Teacher, I teach a 5-Part Series over the course of 15-months. It is an apprenticeship into the living lineage of the Peruvian arts originated by my teacher, don Oscar Miro-Quesada. It is a complete honor to share the ancient teachings, healing processes and initiations from these sacred arts.

I have been on this planet for several decades and I have experienced and understand addiction, depression and an overly active mind. With a deep desire to find balance and harmony, and a good amount of personal work I know firsthand, it is possible to have happiness and emotional stability.

It is my intention to guide others on a path to wholeness by way of healing the self.
It is for everyone, you do not have to enroll into an apprenticeship to transform, merely have a desire and willingness to change.

It truly is my passion to create ritual - when one creates ritual- we are speaking the language of the universe and when this happens the natural world comes to our aid and we no longer feel alone or separate. Often when we are in a place of separation, we suffer.

Please come in for a consultation and we can begin the work of transforming your life, inviting you back into wholeness.

My past experience includes:

• Sanctioned Teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition since 2016
• Director of The Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space, Albany CA since 2016
• Three-year apprenticeship with Mateo (Matthew) Magee; author of "Peruvian Shamanism: The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition"
• Reiki II Practitioner since 2001
• Two-time completion of the Pachakuti Mesa (PMT) of Cross Cultural Shamanism Apprenticeship Training Program with Judy Hoaglund

I have been going to the Shamanic healing circle with Jnana for the past 2 years. Here space in Albany is welcoming and the journeys are more useful than psychotherapy to me. I recommend it to anyone that is interested in self healing and wants to get deeper insight into there current condition. I also completed Peruvian Shamanic Training with Jnana and use some of the techniques I learned in my holistic Healing practice. The Peruvian Mesa tradition helps me to overcome obstacles and to stay grounded. Jnana is a dedecadet Practitioner of this tradition and a caring guide.
Since the fall of 2017, I've attended Jnana's events - including despacho ceremonies, full and new moon rituals, new year visioning, and shamanic journeys with gong, music and chanting. It's an amazing way to connect with a blend of ancient traditions that are relevant and helpful for keeping us steady in these turbulent times. Jnana is a gifted healer and holder-of-space. She's down to earth, warm, and welcoming, intuitive, genuine. She explains the work in a clear, easy-to-access, and inclusive way. I highly highly recommend Jnana for her events and private sessions. I emerge each time feeling awake, alive, connected, and empowered.

I love Jnana! She's the real deal. Her heartfelt journeys, combined with her vast knowledge of Peruvian Shamanism has made me feel welcome and comfortable at every one of her events. I have had such rewarding journeys and eye-opening realizations with her. If you need guidance or input, she's the one to contact. I am so grateful to have found her, and to participate in her wonderful offerings!
