• For seekers

    The power of plant medicine, shamanic and ceremonial work:

    I believe in the power of plant medicines, shamanic and ceremonial techniques. These technologies have been around for over 40,000 years because they work. Working with them, we can experience powerful insights, healing and connection. Now, research is confirming both the efficacy and effectiveness of these tools.

    Are you seeking transformation? Do you have difficulty discerning the path in front of you?

    By marrying spiritual wisdom and practices with cutting-edge science, I invite you to step into your own evolution to...

    • Embody your personal mission.

    • Expand your inner-knowing.

    • Heal and integrate core wounds.
    • Remember and reconnect deeply to the world within and around you in new and optimal ways.

    As a teacher, bridge-builder and way-shower, I offer plant medicine coaching, inner journey work and Akashic Records reading, all thoughtfully personalized and designed to illuminate your next steps forward. Supportive and non-judgmental, I employ these tools and techniques to facilitate a safe, healthy passage home to your truest self.

    Creating an optimal space for learning and growth

    Because these experiences can be life-changing, it is critical to work with trained and connected medicine people who hold a safe, loving, non-judgmental and supportive container. All seekers benefit from proper pre-ceremony instruction and guidance, and post-ceremony support and integration. Without these, your journey can become just another heady trip, one that does not lead to the growth or transformation you seek. 

    All beliefs and spiritual values are welcomed in this work.

In all sessions we discuss current research and science, safety, and your goals and desires for an optimal experience. $150/hour.

  • I am an oracle, medicine woman and teacher, one who is unabashedly curious about the world. Growing up in a diverse and multilingual family, I've lived in and traveled to over 43 countries...and counting. Plant medicines and shamanic work have provided me deep healing and insight. I've been doing ritual work since I was in my 20s, and study under Don Oscar Miro-Quesada, Freddy "Puma" Quispe, Sandra Ingerman, two elders in the Quechua-Aymara Andean traditions, a Native American elder from Oregon and an Afro-Caribbean shaman, the Shipibo of Peru, as well as other medicine people and guides on the path. (Click here to watch the video "Why the world needs shamanism more than ever.")  My work and education draw from a variety of shamanic practices, as well as the fields of education, psychology, neuro-biology, trauma-informed practices, quantum physics and cultural anthropology. I have been a coach and teacher since 1995, receiving my M.Ed. from Stanford and my Ph.D. from the University of Oregon. I continue to teach, coach and do anti-racist and DEI work in Central Oregon, where I live with my husband Martin and furry pals Tucker and Hazel.

  • TESTIMONIALS

    Michi shares a safe space full of integrity, love and wisdom. She listens patiently with an open heart without judgment. She shares wisdom gained from her own direct experiences, insight and understanding. Through Michi's guidance and patience, I've grown more and more into who I am in truth. She reflects a conscious awareness where I can quickly access new perspectives and courageously embrace more and more of my true being. - Z

     

    I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle in Peru during Shamanic training. After the most difficult night I had during ceremony, I was amazed at the care I received from Michelle the next day. She was very nurturing and kind and was really good with helping me return to a good state of being. I highly recommend anyone who follows the Shamanic path to work with Michelle for assistance in integration of your Journeys.

    Michelle is integral to my relationship with plant medicine. I have been a searcher and a seeker for years and consulted with Michelle about my trepidations with journeying with Ayahuasca. Michelle helped me get clear that my intuition was right and that it was not the medicine for me. I am so grateful for Michelle's insight and ancient wisdom. - Elizabeth
