Turtle Vision Healing Arts has 25 years experience helping people from all walks of life. We help by using techniques based on shamanism and Ojibwa (Native American) Medicine.
These techniques rely on changing your approach to your problem or issue. Your success takes place when you are open to understanding what shamanism is, and the approach to healing that it offers.
Our goal is to help you reach yours.

Joye Peters is a shamanic practitioner and coach based in Berlin, Germany and Los Angeles, California.
Firstly, I don't consider myself a "shaman" and beleive the word is overused. I consider myself a Medicine Woman that uses shamanic and other healing techniques with a deep connection to the earth and Universe as a whole. This is a major part of my practice.
My initiation into this work 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. 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. My long standing teacher at the foundation was Sandra Ingerman, world-renowned expert on Soul Retrieval. She taught me Soul Retrieval, Shamanic Counseling, as well as many other courses. I am also a member of The Circle of the Foundaation.
I graduated from California College of Arts with a BFA, have lived in 4 countries and have traveled to over a dozen.
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.
This procedure works on a specific trauma from your past. The goal is to "retrieve" the part of you that "left" to help you survive that trauma. This technique will help rid afflicted memories, obstacles, belief methodologies or anything else that miight be preventing you from moving on from that trauma.
Everyone should have a Power Animal. They become your bestfriend and will help increase your physical and mental stamina while building and restoring your confidence and self-esteem. They also teach you about protection and security
Shamanic Releasing Technique
Home is where the heart is, but what if your heart is being occupied by something else? This intricate procedure releases attachments by removing them from the heart chakra and using classic psychopomp techniques to release them.

The Way of the Shaman is a documentary on the work of Micheal Harner and modern shamanism. Sandra Ingerman talks about illness from a shamanic perspective.

There are people who say that going to another "world" and bringing back power animals for healing is nonsense. Here are a few examples of such objections and our answers.
"Are you kidding me! What are they talking dogs?"
We talk with the mind all the time, often subconsciously. Don't people pray to God? And what about the infamous "gut feeling" or what is called intuition? Shamanism is not magic. It is a learning and healing method developed over millennia. It is considered the oldest form of healing and can be found on every continent.
"This sounds like hocus pocus stuff."
From today's perspective in Western culture shamanism can sound ridiculous, but so does a spiritual leader turning water into wine. In the 17th century, scientists were burned at the stake for saying the world was round. 100 years ago, doctors were being hanged for robbing graves to operate on cadavers. The American Medical Association was once called a ”fringe science” and “brainwashers”.
"I’m a devoutly religious and the idea of conjuring up spirits scares me. I would never get into what you’re talking about."
A Shaman does not conjure up spirits. We work with energy that is displaced. There are parallels to this type of healing work with homeopathy, Reiki, acupuncture, and even Western psychology.
"I've heard of shamanism and was recommended to check it out. I believe it works, but all of this stuff really scares me."
It is normal to be afraid of the unknown. These techniques are not for everyone and there is no guarantee that they will work for your problem or medical issue. Most of what people fear is the fear itself. So, how will you ever know if it works if you stay in fear?
What is a Shamanic practitioner?
A person who practices shamanism as 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.
