This workbook has been designed to accompany the book ‘Shamanism and Spirituality in Therapeutic Practice’. It covers the practical applications of part II of the original book, offering a more structured and easy access to exercises and tools, without the in-depths background descriptions, case studies, references, examples and explanations, which the reader can find throughout…
Christa Mackinnon – Who I am and what I do
I see myself as a modern medicine woman, contemporary shamanic teacher, author and change-maker. In my work I combine my knowledge of ancient wisdom traditions and psycho-spiritual shamanism, received from teachers all over the world, with my skills as a psychologist, therapist and trainer.
I facilitate a wide range of psycho-spiritual development workshops, courses and events. I furthermore train therapeutic professionals in various aspects of shamanism and speak extensively at conferences, whilst also writing books and articles and being actively involved in the Women’s movement and Extinction Rebellion.
My workshops, training courses, events, books and speaking engagements are designed – in various ways – to facilitate empowerment, expansion of consciousness and growth towards wholeness. They all aim to support people in their quest to become ‘all they can be’, whilst finding and walking their own authentic path and creating lives that have meaning and purpose. I utilise journeying, ceremony, dance, drumming, sound healing, energy work, soul retrieval, nature work, creative expression, vision quests, writing and much more in combination with my underlying psychological and therapeutic knowledge.
My work with women focuses on the ‘Modern Medicine Woman’. I co-founded ‘Women Weaving Change’ and co-facilitate a practitioner training course for modern medicine women. I am also involved in women’s circles and events so that we can come together and ‘walk the path of the empowered feminine’ to create much needed change.
