Energy Healing for the Empath Workshop

Self - Healing Techniques and Survival Skills for the Empath

Are you an Empath? Empaths are highly sensitive individuals who so often struggle with navigating emotionally, physically, energetically, and spiritually in life. Many go through life experiencing so many challenges, and are unaware of the source of their sensitivity; and some do realize the source of their sensitivity, but are not sure how to work with the challenges that come along with it. Although being an Empath can be a unique road to walk, it does not have to disable you, and you can learn to manage it and survive in a balanced way. This workshop will discuss the components of being an Empath, and incorporate self-healing skills and tools to assist with the process of managing being an Empath. This workshop is designed for Empaths who are seeking assistance, and are seeking to learn techniques to assist them to survive in the world in a healthy way.  This workshop is extremely detailed, full of information and helpful self healing techniques, including the following: Lecture and discussion; Grounding and Balancing techniques for energetic stability; Multiple Protection techniques for self-survival and energy preservation; How to Identify, Discern, and work with your Empathic Psychic and Emotional Signals, and how to respond to them; Transformation techniques for clearing toxic energies from yourself; Shamanic Stone Ceremony for Release and Empowerment of energies; and a Customized Medicine Bag for Empaths.  No experience necessary, this workshop is open to anyone to learn self-healing tools and skills to assist them with their Empath sensitivity.

To Register:   This workshop is taught individually, one on one with a student by Appointment. Contact Jessica for more information.

Walking in the Worlds

Introduction to Shamanism & The Shamanic Journey

 2 Day Workshop Intensive

"I cannot recommend this workshop enough.  Not only was Walking in the Worlds informative, but Jessica is such a strong, confident and intuitive Teacher.  She guided me in the way that I needed and was very much in tune with me the entire weekend.  I felt completely safe, supported and protected, which is something I am so grateful for.  Jessica is truly an inspiration to me.  She has a down to earth and relatable teaching approach.  But most importantly, her integrity, devotion, and wealth of knowledge alone is reason enough for me to book another workshop!  This class had me journeying on day 1 - Jessica had me equipped with the foundational tools I needed and I took it from there.  Honestly, this was an experience I will never forget.  Jessica, thank you so much for being you and offering such an important workshop.  Again, I highly recommend this workshop to those of you who want an introduction to journeying!"     - JCD, Wayne, New Jersey

The Shamanic Journey is an ancient technique to connect with Spirit and Energy, and is used to step into the Spirit worlds that co-exist with ordinary reality. This in-depth and intensive workshop will cover what the Shamanic Journey is, how it works, and various ways of using it from a Core Shamanism perspective. Students will learn self healing techniques for personal healing connections with Spirits and Energy, in addition to how to begin establishing Spirit relations in shamanic practices. Students will also learn how to safely and effectively conduct a Shamanic Journey, explore introductory elements and parameters of Shamanism, learn to begin to work with Spirit Guides and Power Animals, in addition to much more. Discussion and exploration of the various worlds in Shamanism is also incorporated, in addition to various hands on techniques and exercises in different aspects of Shamanic Journey work for self healing.

The Foundation of Shamanic Studies, July 2016

This is a sacred ceremony to honor the local Pequot Tribe, and join in a circle of healing for all ancestral ties of all of the victims, perpetrators, and land spirits, connected to this war. This ceremony is being held on the anniversary of the "Great Swamp Fight" - one of the largest and most impactful Native American battles in the history of New England - that finally ended in Fairfield (Southport), Connecticut, on July 13, 1637.  We cannot forget to honor the Natives who sacrificed their lives and their land. They were the first people, and they were greatly wronged on so many levels. We cannot change that the Pequot War happened; however, we can offer honor and respect for all involved. This ceremony will include shamanic healing work for all victims, perpetrators, and the land, including healing for our own ancestral ties to these entanglements. We will be honoring the Spirits in various forms.  Jessica Hunter has been working with healing work connected to the Pequot War for many years.  Her focus is to bring awareness, healing, and respect for the first people in our local area, their ancestors, the land, and all involved in this war, through sacred ceremony.  She facilitates this ceremony each year to honor this.  Please join us to contribute to the collective healing and honor the Spirits.
