Christa Mackinnon – Who I am and what I offer
I see myself as a Modern Medicine Woman. I am a psychologist, shamanic teacher, best-selling author & sacred activist.
In my work I combine my knowledge and practice of shamanism and ancient wisdom traditions, received from indigenous teachers all over the world, with my skills as a psychologist, therapist, trainer and group facilitator.
I facilitate a range of shamanic and psycho-spiritual workshops, training courses and events, open to everybody. 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 Earth Activism.
Workshops and training courses: 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.
Empowering Women: My work with women focuses on the ‘Modern Medicine Woman’. I co-founded ‘Women Weaving Change’ where we facilitate Modern Medicine Woman practitioner training courses and workshops, so that we can come together and ‘walk the path of the empowered feminine’ to create much needed change.
Eco-political Activism: I also co-founded Sacred Earth Activism, which is involved with spiritual and earth-centered actions in various political and ecological movements, facilitates training for sacred activists and organises conferences.
