• Empower your Knowledge.

    Turtle Vision Healing Arts has 20 years experience helping people from all walks of life. Through methods based on shamanism and Ojibwa medicine techniques, our clients reach their goals, gain clarity in their lives and become more prosperous.

    We are:
    Everything we do is performance based. You measure your results by the changes in your own life.

    We are not:
    This is not a person based system. It’s all about the guides and allies called upon to work on your behalf.

    If you believe that there is an interconnection between mind, body and spirit, then this is for you. If you believe “shaman” is another word for cult, religion or guru, this isn't for you.

  • Turtle Vision Healing Arts is based on these core principles:

    • You have the answers to most of your problems, yet don't see them.
    • We are more than what our physical body appears to be.
    • Intellect, heart and spirit must be happily married to be complete.
    • Results are all that matter.

  • Testimonials

    "...an absolutely fantastic healing..."

    "Joye did an absolutely fantastic healing for myself and my home. She is nice, caring and a wonderful person. I highly recommend her services." (Andrea Meyer-Woodland Hills, CA)

    "Joye performed energy fire extractions..."

    "Joye performed energy fire extractions on me in two sessions that have changed my life. Within a few days after each session I felt a lightness of being and joy that I had never experienced before. As I have integrated this new lightness, I feel freed up to pursue my path in ways that I was not able to before. Joye is an amazing and talented energy healer."

    (Tim Daulter-Northridge, CA)

    "I would recommend her..."

    "Joye's participation in MoonDrum Circle over the past 5 years has surfaced her gifts as a seer and healer. The connection she has with her teachers continues to strengthen as I benefit directly and witness over and over her ability in helping others. I would recommend her for shamanic healing to anyone who needs healing."

    (Netanya Selman, RN, MA.,- facilitator MoonDrum Circle, Los Angeles, CA)

    "...a soul retrieval that changed my life."

    "Joye gave me a soul retrieval that changed my life. Within a month’s period, I was able to find the focal point and partners for my online business. I was able to tap into my 7 and 14 year old selves, which were crucial periods in my adolescent development, and together deal with my OCD. My white buffalo animal brought an attorney to me who was willing to work on flexible terms toward a crucial legal matter. In addition, I felt renewed and reinvigorated to take control of my finances that I had relinquished in a pending divorce settlement, and am using those funds toward a dream of doing a food tour across America and traveling around the world." (Will Suzuki - Los Angeles, CA)

    "A single session accomplished truly profound things for me."

    "A single session with Joye accomplished truly profound things for me. During our session, I experienced not only powerful emotions but also distinct physical sensations that were both pronounced and highly unusual for me. (Even my dog had a bizarre and very uncharacteristic reaction to her presence, so I can’t say this was simply a case of my imagination getting the best of me!)

    Above all, Joye helped me to reconnect with some lost and/or neglected aspects of my self. At the conclusion of our session, it’s not that all of my problems suddenly and magically evaporated, but I did feel that I’d been handed the key to a previously locked door of my psyche. Working with Joye gave me an opportunity to dig deeper than I’d been capable of doing on my own. She also emphasized that it was up to me to build upon the work we’d done together. This certainly meshes with what I understand of shamanic healing – no one can take the journey for you, but a great guide can point you in the direction of the path, help you take your first steps and perhaps point out a few significant landmarks that you might otherwise be inclined to overlook. Joye absolutely accomplished this for me.

    Another thing that impressed me was that, at the end of my session, Joye did not try to book a follow-up session or sell me any additional services. On the contrary – she actually encouraged me to take some time to digest the experience and really explore the information she had provided me with in my own time and my own way. This speaks volumes about Joye’s positive intent and professionalism. It certainly assured me that she has a genuine desire to impart self-reliance and self-discovery, which is one of the greatest gifts that any healer can bestow.
    I would wholeheartedly recommend Joye’s services to anyone who has an open heart, an open mind and a willingness to explore the path she presents to them."

    (Julia Diddy-Los Angeles, CA)

    "Her approach is compassionate and firm..."

    "Joye's approach is compassionate and firm—a "no frills" approach to shamanic coaching. I sometimes think of her as a journeying drill sergeant, because she packs quite a punch in her one hour sessions. Joye encourages self sufficiency, guiding the client to draw deeply from their own connection to spirit, to find solutions. Joye has taught me to be bold and direct with my power animals and teachers—and with myself. This has given me the strength to take an honest look at life decisions that led me to feel powerless and unhappy. By calling on spirit to help me face my fears, I began to see how I give my power away and live in victim hood; I also began to recognize my own cruelty and manipulations.


    Ultimately, I began to unpeel the layers of masks I've been living in, to start an exploration of the strengths and talents that lie underneath. Joye has led me to recognize my own access to power, while helping me to cultivate a strong and healthy relationship with this power. Tending to my spirit connections will be the work of a lifetime. I will always be grateful to Joye for helping me take my first steps into spirit world, and for giving me a blueprint to begin my explorations."(Anne-Los Angeles,CA)


    Joye Peters is a Medicine Woman and Shamanic Coach based in Los Angeles, California.


    First off, Joye Peters doesn't call herself a "shaman". She considers herself a Medicine Woman; with her vast knowledge and deep connections with the earth, this is a major part of her practice.


    Her initiation into shamanism was unique. The first teachers she studied with were Richard Dobson (C.HT, R.HT) and Natasha Frazier (C.HT, R.HT) who taught her traditional Ojibwa (Native American) medicine techniques, alongside visualization. She also studied with the late Sun Bear (Gheezis Mokwa) of the Chippewa/Metis tribe and founder of the Bear Tribe Medicine Society.


    Later on her path, she trained with Dr. Michael Harner of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, and she is a Harner Shamanic Counselor. She was taught Soul Retrieval and Shamanic Counseling from Sandra Ingerman, world-renowned expert on Soul Retrieval.


    She has a BFA in Painting from the California College of Arts and has lived in 4 countries. She has traveled to over a dozen and speaks fluent German. She currently live in Los Angeles, California.

    • Skeptical?

      “It is the mark of an intelligent mind to entertain a thought without fully accepting it.”


      "Are you kidding me! Power Animals! What are they, talking dogs?"

      We converse with spirit all the time in our minds. Don’t people pray? How about that “gut feeling” or "intuition" that all of us have? Shamanism is not magic. It’s a developed skill and technique that anyone can learn for healing.

      "This sounds like hocus pocus!"

      In the 17th century, scientists were ostracized for saying the world was round. 200 years ago, doctors were being hanged for operating on cadavers. The American Medical Association was once called a ”fringe science” and 'brain-washers'.

      "I am clinically depressed and have been most of my life. It runs in my family. Depression is a bio-chemical disease not spiritual, so this would never help me."

      Yes, depression is a bio-chemical disease and medication is mostly prescribed. Shamanic techniques have been known to help depression by dealing with soul loss. These techniques can prevent you from over medicating, helping you gain the understanding to approach your issue or problem from an another perspective.

      "I was recommended by my therapist to check out a shaman. I believe it works, but all of this stuff really scares me."

      It's common to be fearful of what is unfamiliar. These techniques are not for everyone. You have to be open and that's it. If you let fear hold you back, how will you ever know if it works?
