Many modern energy healers use the word ‘Shaman’ to describe what they do. The word ‘Shaman’ comes from a word from the Tungus tribe of Siberia used to describe the ‘Healers’/‘Medicine People’ who work with the invisible spiritual realms of Nature and Humans, to bring deep healing, balance, guidance and a greater understanding of one’s soul journey. The modern day Shaman bridges together the old tradition and the new in a synthesis that offers assistance for the people who live the modern life without dishonoring what has come before but building on this knowledge.
Much of Michele's healing path has been developed from years of international spiritual journeys, teachings, ceremonies and interactions with the wisdom of indigenous peoples including Ohki Simine Forest (Mohawk Shaman/Mayan) Eric Gonzales (Mayan Fire Ceremonies) Carlos Barrios (Mayan teachings) and years of Native American Church learning from Daniel Freeland (Dine') as well as time in Peru with Peruvian shamans and hosted one from Ecuador.

For ten years Michele facilitated Temple Initiation Rites, Solstices and Equinoxes and workshops at Stardreaming Temple and Labyrinth Complex south of Santa Fe.
