• Shamanic Healing Techniques

  • Get started.

    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.

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

    • Any issue or problem is met with complete confidentiality and non-judgement.
    • Spirit, heart and Intellect must be happily unified to be complete.
    • We are more than how our physical bodies appear to us.
    • Your results are all that matter.

  • Our goal at TV Healing Arts is to effectively renew and restore those parts of yourself that have been lost or abandoned, due to trauma or lose.

  • Procedures

      The work and healing takes place on multi-levels like the layers of an onion. This can create a domino effect. Whatever is done will not interfere with any medical diagnosis you may have.


      Soul Retrieval (SR)

      This is one of the better-known techniques associated with shamanism. Soul retrieval works by taking the piece from a traumatic event which left your body to survive and protect you from the shock of that event. That piece disassociates itself from you and in psychology is known as “dissociation". Soul retrieval transforms the piece by bringing it into the present and returning it back to body to create wholeness through the integration process. This technique will help rid afflicted memories along with obstacles, belief modalities or any excess baggage that might be preventing you from moving on from that trauma.

      Power Animal Retrieval (PAR)

      Every sports athlete, A-lister, scientist, CEO, teacher, writer, bus driver and parent should have a Power Animal. A Power Animal (PA) will help increase your physical strength, confidence, magnitude and protect you by having your back. Sometimes in our lives when our power is gone, we feel "powerless". A PA is like having BFF (best friend forever). and can guide and mentor you through understanding. You will become fearless in any situation when using your Power Animal.


      Shamanic Releasing Technique (SRT)

      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 which can happen after a major tragedy or trauma by being passed on to a relative. This intricate procedure releases attachments by removing them directly from the heart chakra and using classic psychopomp techniques to release them.

      Individual Shamanic Coaching

      (beginner and advanced)

      Learn how to journey, and enter the path of the "wounded warrior". You will transform your life while understanding the triggers and habits that prevent you from personal growth. Also, you will eventually learn how to help others. Shamanic Coaching for the advanced practitioner who has been on the path for some time or the pro who has their own practice in another modality. You will continue to build upon your relationships with your Allies and learn advanced Ojibwa medicine techniques.

      Purification and House Blessing

      Purification and House Blessing is used to physically remove and clear stuck or blocked heavy energy from land, property or within the home. The method is based on a Cherokee technique to prepare a home for its inhabitants and those who will eventually pass through its doors. It ends with a beautifully loving and personalized poem for the owner.

      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 believe the word is overused. I consider myself a Medicine person 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 and still is Sandra Ingerman, MA an award winning author of twelve books, including Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self, Medicine for the Earth and The Book of Ceremony. She taught me Soul Retrieval, Shamanic Counseling just to name a couple as well as many other techniques.


      I graduated from California College of Arts with a BFA, have lived in 4 countries and have traveled to over a dozen.

    • Frequently asked Questions
      What is Shamanism?

      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.
