Join author Katherine Skaggs as she opens her initial shipment of ten books of the Artist Shaman Healer Sage. These first ten books give her the actual experience of the book to review and approve, so the large shipment can get upon its way to Katherine's storage and shipping location, so YOU can get your book in hand after the first of May. Experience the excitement and the beauty of a foundational guidebook on shamanism, with amazing spiritual wisdom and mapping systems that will assist you in living a better life.

Shamans, shamanic cultures, and ancient mystical cultures all know the secrets to a happy and healthy life. Now more than ever in a time when life is full of chaos and confusion, many are returning to foundational and timeless principles and practices that restore harmony, peace, and well-being, personally, and for the good of the whole. The times we live in have been prophesied for generation after generation, from the Hindu teachings on the Kali Yuga, to the Christian teachings on the end times, to the prophesies of the Hopi, the Maya, the Navajo, and the Aztec (to name just a few) telling us major change is upon us. We must shift consciously, and willingly, that we may clear away suffering and hardship, and return to a time of peace and well-being. It needs all of us to participate consciously and willingly as best as possible. Artist Shaman Healer Sage is a wise map that assists you in choosing a better reality for yourself.

Let's do this together, to dream a better world for ourselves, and the generations to come. You truly are the blessing when you begin to center in your heart and become present to the blessings within you and all around you.

Timeless Wisdom, Practices, Ritual, and Ceremony to Transform Your Life and Awaken Your Soul

Author and Artist Katherine Skaggs

Shipping May 2021 – 264-Page Full Color Shamanic Guidebook

Check out Katherine’s new book, Artist Shaman Healer Sage to learn more about shamanism and how its wisdom, practices, rituals, and ceremonies can bring greater balance and harmony to your life. Artist Shaman Healer Sage is filled with wisdom teachings and stories, “How to” guidance for working with shamanic tools, ceremony, ritual, prayer, altar work and much more. This shamanic guidebook is a life map for the soul on their earth walk. It provides insights into the spiritual working of the earthly world, and how to live in balance with the ancient woven truths that bring flow, harmony, and balance to life.

Artist Shaman Healer Sage is a foundational guide for igniting your creativity and passion as the conscious dreamer of your life. Great Spirit gives us many clues to living a life of joy, abundance, and harmony. However, as humans, we often walk around in the dark, confused as we chase linear goals, disguised and separate from our true nature as spirit. Artist Shaman Healer Sage shines a light upon the workings of Great Mystery, and to the eternal truth that we are spiritual beings having a human experience, souls upon a spiritually purpose-filled Earth walk. It also gives you timeless shamanic teachings, practices, and tools for living in balance, empowered to live in harmony and joy once again.”

This multi-cultural shamanic course is a foundation for living the ancient spiritual practices of direct revelation for transformation, and for living your life in power and unity.

Each designated Saturday Meeting we will gather in a safe, ceremonial space for soulful learning, drum journeying, soul remembering, and creating shamanic tools. We will also meet virtually on Zoom one to two times monthly at an agreed upon evening time for teleconference and check-in, to maintain and ground our teachings into our every day life, to build community and to gain support. If for any reason you cannot meet at this agreed upon time by the group, a recording will be available.

The content of the course will include foundational Shamanic teachings, the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel, and shamanic practices for living life empowered and awakened!

Each meeting we will also make ceremonial, shamanic tools associated with the work of that month.

Why Soul Retrieval?

Have you ever felt like you lost a part of yourself when after a relationship break up, a car accident, death of a loved one ... or perhaps you just didn't feel right, you didn't feel well, or walked around with some sort of anxiety or fright? When one has experienced a trauma of any sort, whether a moment a go, in childhood, or even lifetimes ago, there is an energetic loss of one's essence light that can occur, attributing to soul loss. This trauma can create distortions in one's energy bodies, blocking the ability to experience joy, happiness and clarity of one self.

For any one person to experience the fullness of life, it is important that that person is able to be fully present in all aspects of self. Imagine the soul's essence is light. If for any reason that light has been displaced through trauma and the drama's of life, one can experience a lack of Self and a lack of joy for life.

This gathering is aimed at both education about soul loss and soul retrieval, and a focus through the group experience to release energetic blocks and trauma's in the field of each individual who gathers to allow a restoration of the light within each person.

A sacred container is created to facilitate a high frequency, safe experience. A medicine wheel is opened and supportive, light beings, power animals and spirit guides are called to bring in light and healing energies. A variety of shamanic tools and methods will be used to assist each person through the group experience, along with a soul retrieval drum journey. Rattles, clicking sticks, light drumming, tibetan bowls, bells and singing are typically used to assist in the restoration process. Light and breath will be blown into the crown of each person during the ceremony as part of the experience.

This event is designed for empowerment of each individual, to assist him or her in the ability to absorb more light into his or her being and to be present to his or her divinity.

Learn the power of Shamanic Drum Journeying to awaken your ability to directly communicate with your inner or spirit self and receive direct knowing.

Learning to drum journey can be a great tool for meeting your power animal, spirit guides and helpers, divination, personal healing, and gaining insights to a question or objective you have in mind.
