"Tell me and I'll forget. Show me and I may not remember. Involve me and I'll understand."
— American Indian Proverb
Many people ignore, overlook or even give away their power. This can happen in different ways. Shamanism shows you how to reclaim your power and health, turning it into a creative driving force of balance in your life.
These techniques are based in Ojibwa Medicine (American Indian) and Core Shamanism. This ensures a thorough and guided approach so you can truly understand the shamanic perspective and how to connect with nature. This is the underlying basis of shamanism.
Unlike other therapies, these tools can help prevent your symptoms from recurring without relying purely on prescription drugs. It works by shifting your perception of your problem. Your success takes place when you understand the shamanic perspective and the healing that it offers.
Its common to feel the difference after a single session.
"Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect."
Chief Seattle, 1854

What is Divination Consultation?
Divination Consultation is a reading using shamanic divination to help clarify and clearly understand your options and possible outcomes of a situation, decision or question.
Shamanic divination is used to get to the bottom of an issue through the discovery process. Other divination tools for your question are brought in to help for clarification enabling you to come to a concise and clear decision.
This is used for any type of question and is especially powerful when trying to get the birds-eye view of a complex situation.
Sometimes we need an objective point of view from someone who doesn't know us, our problem or issues. When you are too close to a situation its hard not to become subjective about the outcome.

M. was preparing to relocate to a new city for her dream job. She did her online research, but was still unsure what part of the city to live in. Through the Divination Consultation we were able to pinpoint where she should not live, which left her with specific neighborhoods to choose from. Once she knew this her decision-making process was so clear, that when she finally moved not only did she find a place in her desired neighborhood, she found it swiftly without stress and with complete ease.
Power Animal Retrieval (PAR)
What is a Power Animal?
A Power Animal helps increase your physical and mental strength, confidence and magnitude. They can also be retrieved for a family, property or business.
Everyone should have a Power Animal. Its that simple. From a shamanic perspective, all of us are born into this life with the protection of a helping spirit like a guardian angel. Children have stuffed toys that take the form of animals. This sometimes can be a physical manifestation of their PA. Your PA will not only help increase your physical, mental strength and confidence but also magnify your presence.
Power Animals can protect you by having your back.
Sometimes in our lives when our power is gone, we feel powerless. A Power Animal is like having a BFF (best friend forever). It can guide and mentor you throughout your life. You can become fearless in any situation when using your PA and it will be the newest member of your spiritual family.
A PA can also be retrieved for a school or business after a traumatic event for protection and healing those involved.
How do you know if you need a Power Animal?
You need a Power Animal Retrieval when:
D. is an Olympic gold medalist skateboarder who had his producer contact me. He wanted a Power Animal because of an upcoming on-air TV stunt. It was the most dangerous stunt to date. A friend of his recommended a Power Animal Retrieval. He told him that having a PA would make him more confident. I went to his studio and retrieved a PA. Two weeks later, his stunt went off safely and more successfully than he'd imagined. His career skyrocketed and he got his own TV show.
Site-specific Soul Retrieval (SSR)
What is Soul Retrieval?
Soul Retrieval can help eliminate addictions, obesity, depression and afflictions from abuse. It can also be used to bring back the soul of a company, property or city.
This is one of the better known techniques associated with shamanism. We have all had energy or soul loss that occurred during or after a traumatic event in our lives. It can happen from being yelled at as a child to physical, psychological or any type of abuse. A major death, illness, accident or embarrassment can trigger soul loss. This happens as a form of survival to protect us from the incident of shock from the trauma itself. Its part of being human. The soul part separates itself and leaves the body.
In psychology this is called “dissociation”.
Soul Retrieval works by bringing back the disconnected soul part which created the loss. The retrieval transforms the part by bringing it into the present from the past and returning it back to the body of origin. This forms new wholeness for the client through the integration process.
This technique can help rid you of afflicted memories along with obstacles, belief modalities or any excess baggage that might be preventing you from moving on from that trauma.
It can also help a business grow by replenishing and revitalizing it with the initial mission or goals within the spirit of the company.

About 3 weeks later her stomach problems were gone, panic attacks had subsided and one year later, she divorced her husband and is happily remarried with a new baby.

Shamanic Releasing Technique (SRT)
What is Shamanic Releasing Technique?
Shamanic Releasing Technique can heal an attached entity in the heart, thereby mending your emotional balance.
Home is where the heart is, but what if your heart is being occupied by something else? Entity attachment can happen in different ways. One of the most common is through generational attachment. This can happen after a major tragedy and by being passed on to another relative.
This intricate procedure releases attachment(s) directly from the heart chakra. Classic shamanic psychopomp techniques are used to release them.
Shamanic Releasing Technique is about restoring the emotional heart back to where it was before an entity became attached. It can befall a loved one during the passing of a relative. The attachment goes into the heart chakra building and becoming part of the host's life and emotional reality.
How do you know if you need a S.R.T.?
You need Shamanic Releasing Technique when:
M. is an easy going person and always pleasant to be around. M. enjoyed to drink, but if she did so under certain circumstances like staying mad at her husband or not allowing herself to express her anger towards her children, she would overindulge and become aggressive and even violent. After a Shamanic Releasing Technique session we discovered that two entities from her alcoholic father were attached to her after he died, 10 years earlier. They were released and now, not only does M. no longer become aggressive when she drinks, she drinks much less.

"What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow which runs across
the grass and loses itself in the sunset."
Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator 1830 - 1890
My name is Joye Peters. I have worked in many roles in a many industries. I am an artist who has worked as art consultant, scenic designer, gallery owner, associate producer, film financier and software consultant. My varied experience has given me a true understanding of how to work with people.
Yet, during those positions there is one role that I have always been passionate about and that was always my second career. It kept me focused and in the beginning was built entirely through word of mouth. That is the role of Shamanic Coach.
I am based in Berlin, Germany and Los Angeles, California.
My childhood was filled with lots of travel. Libya, California, Washington D.C., Tehran, Michigan are many of the places we lived. This developed a nomadic travel bug in me which still sometimes surfaces today. It also influenced my understanding and desire for cultural diversity which is very much a part of who I am.
My bloodline is as diverse as the places I have lived. On my mother’s father’s side of the family, my Great-grandmother was Canadian Blackfoot Indian married to my German Great-grandfather. My mother's mother was African American and Cherokee Indian. On my father’s side of the family, his mother was also African American and part American Indian, but the tribe we do not know. Information about his father was also unknown.
I stumbled upon the shamanic path when I was a Freshman at University studying art. I was a bit of a bookworm, loved philosophy and deep subjects and began reading the works and teachings of Krishnamurti and Gurdjieff while living in the dorm.
One Christmas I received a gift that would change my life forever; an 8-week course on visualization and Ojibwa medicine by Richard Dobson (C.HT, R.HT) and Natasha Frazier (C.HT, R.HT). This incredible power couple taught me techniques that I still use today, and I received firsthand knowledge and healing from his visiting Uncle, a pipe-carrying Ojibwa Medicine Man.
After that gift, I was hooked. I didn’t understand where this path would lead me, but it didn’t matter, I was in. This ignited a search inside of myself even though I didn’t know what I was looking for. Then I began studying with Gheezis Mokwa known as Sun Bear of the Chippewa/Metis tribe and founder of the Bear Tribe Medicine Society.
Six years later, I took Michael Harner’s introductory course The Way of the Shaman. I excelled in that course and discovered abilities within myself that were concealed yet starting to surface. Afterwards, I went to what I call shaman University at the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I took almost every course they had to offer and got accepted into the 3-year program with Michael Harner and Sandra Ingerman.
Sandra Ingerman is a mentor of mine and I still learn from her expertise.
During this exceptionally in depth period on my shamanic path, I was always being initiated in my life. Major deaths of all kinds, losses and health issues seemed to surround me wherever I went.
There was a lot of pain during this period in my life and little did I know that this was part of the path of the Wounded Healer. I was constantly resisting this path which was now a major part of my life, out of fear of being called not normal. I didn't even let my closest family members know what I was doing. Eventually I excepted those initiations as the teaching initiations that they were.
Finally, I met someone who held the mirror to me and told me the barefaced truth. Non-resistance would set me free! That’s exactly what happened. I gave in wholeheartedly to shamanism and embraced it with complete love along with the compassionate and loving Guides, Allies, Power Animals and Teachers that embraced me. I stepped up to the plate in service of something greater than myself and allowed the Universe to dictate my path.
So, now you are here. Welcome.

"Within the first 5 minutes of the call, Joye somehow cut through my fragmented ramblings, my weird phone manners...with a freedom beyond any therapy session (and I have had many) giving honest voice to my circumstances and need for help. When she began to journey for me I felt the tension in my body my fears, even my skepticism, sapping away, giving room for calm to root. A week and some days later, it happened. I integrated what Joye restored in me. It was raw. there is a part of me that is still reeling...The work Joye did was very real; akin to how surgery can set a broken bone and give the body a chance to heal whole again.

"When you did the final space clearing, instantly the energy shifted. "
"I can't thank you enough for your shamanic support in resolving a boundary issue peacefully we had with a neighbor. Parts of the garden felt so heavy that we avoided going there because it just didn't feel safe. With your calm confidence you gave us a sense of security. Your focus on providing healing helped us avoid feeding the negative energy. When you did the final space clearing, instantly the energy shifted. The bad vibes are gone for good - and we’ve learned so much from you in the process about setting a positive intention, while being open to the form it takes!" Kaja K. - London, UK. - 2019
There are people who say that going to another world and bringing back Power Animals to help heal your spirit is nonsense. Here is our responses to these objections.
"Are you kidding me! What are they talking dogs?"
We talk with our mind all the time, subconsciously. Don't people pray? And what about the infamous "gut feeling" or what is known as intuition? Shamanism is not magic. It is a learning and healing methodology developed over millennia to work with the natural world around us in all its forms seen and unseen. It is considered the oldest form of healing and can be found on every continent.
"This sounds like hocus pocus."
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. There are still those that believe it today! 150 years ago, doctors were being hanged for robbing graves to operate on cadavers. The American Medical Association was once called a fringe science and brain-washers.
"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 already here. There are parallels to this type of healing work with Homeopathy, Reiki, Osteopathy, Acupuncture, and even Psychology. Its well known that most people that become practitioners come from these disciplines.
"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 situation. Most of what people fear is the fear itself. So, how will you ever know if it works if you stay in fear?
“It is the mark of an intelligent mind to entertain a thought without fully accepting it.”
You are surely intelligent enough to be skeptical, but you are also intelligent enough to know when your problems or suffering gets to a point where you ask yourself, “Should I try something different?”
Long Distance Healing
In shamanism, the journey techniques are considered to work outside of time, meaning that being in the same room isn't always necessary. All procedures are available for long distance healing: except for House Purification & Blessing.

...he is on four different medications for anxiety and depression, but says the drugs don't work.
"I still have, like I said, my terrible days so in that sense no, my PTSD is not getting any better and the fact that they just throw medication at it doesn't do anything," he said. "It just prolongs it."

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 technique 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 and Country to Country.
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.
