Joye Peters is a Shamanic Coach based in Los Angeles, California.
Firstly, I don't consider myself a "shaman", but a Medicine Woman with a deep connection to the earth and Universe as a whole. This is a major part of my practice.
My initiation into shamanism was unique. The first teachers I studied with were Richard Dobson (C.HT, R.HT) and Natasha Frazier (C.HT, R.HT) who taught me traditional Ojibwa (Native American) medicine techniques, alongside visualization. I also studied with the late Sun Bear (Gheezis Mokwa) of the Chippewa/Metis tribe and founder of the Bear Tribe Medicine Society.
Later on my path, I trained with Dr. Michael Harner of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I was taught Soul Retrieval and Shamanic Counseling from Sandra Ingerman, world-renowned expert on Soul Retrieval.
I have a BFA in Painting from the California College of Arts and has lived in 4 countries. I have traveled to over a dozen. I currently live in Los Angeles, California.
The work and healing takes place on multi-levels. This creates a domino effect. Whatever is done will not interfere with any medical diagnosis you may have.
Everyone should have a Power Animal. They become your BFF and will help increase your physical and mental stamina while building confidence, self-esteem and protection.
Fire Extraction with Chakra Clearing
Feeling physically blocked or in pain? This is the technique for you. By releasing the tentacles of blocked energy within the body, this can assist you with diminishing certain symptoms along side your medication. By clearing the chakra associated with your symptoms you will achieve a healthy balance.
Shamanic Releasing Technique
Purification, House Blessing

Shamanic Coaching for the advanced practitioner who has been on the path for some time or the pro who has their own practice. You will continue to build upon your relationships with your Allies and learn advanced Ojibwa medicine techniques.
Dr. Michael Harner talks about what shamanism is and how its used in Western culture.
More frequently asked Questions
What is a Shaman?
A person who practices shamanism and a "doctor" of spiritual medicine. Shamanism is considered the oldest form of healing practiced on every continent throughout millennia.
What do you do?
I work alongside my helping Allies in the form of Animals and Teachers. I go to them in a journey. They do all the work.
Are you making up what you see or is it your imagination?
Neither. Its hard to describe. The best way I can explain it is to say that I'm shown things and given information about a problem or issue and the best way to solve it.
Why would a person go to a Shaman? Can a Shaman help a person if they're already on medication or are being treated for an illness?
A Shaman specifically works on the problem or disease on the astral body. The healing is layered working on multi-levels spiritually, and does not interfere with any medications that you might be taking.
How does it work, how do you do it, what does it look like?
I drum for myself either sitting or standing. I journey in a relaxed state with my eyes covered. This is where I meet my allies who then work on your behalf.
Is it expensive and would my insurance cover it?
The cost is substantially less expensive than most medical procedures or therapies. Check with your insurance provider to see if they cover what's called CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine). It varies from State to State.
Is a Shaman part of a religious belief and does a person have to join a group to go to one?
Throughout millennium, Shamans have affiliated themselves with religious groups or spiritual practices depending on how they were trained. I keep my own belief systems out of sessions to prevent confusion or judgement. You do not have be religious to do this and if you are, it will not interfere with the work and can actually enhance it.
