As a collaborative therapist and shamanic practitioner, I view problems as blessings pointing us in the direction of wellness. Using life's challenges as a guide, we work together to build the foundation of self you need in order to live an enriching and fully human life. This deep work benefits not only yourself but also your loved ones and the rest of our human family. Along with a focus on mindfulness, I specialize in spiritual development for individuals and couples. I assist clients of all sexual orientations and cultural backgrounds develop authentic intimacy and compassionate communication.
I hold an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy, an MFA in Creative Writing, and certifications in Transformational Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy. My shamanic training is from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I have a long career in the arts—writing/acting—which informs my work with other creatives. My podcast is available at selftalkpodcast.com.
I offer mindfulness practices as well as shamanic healing work, based on your need and interest.

Rachel Astarte's Groups

Introduction to Shamanic Journeying

Shamanic journeying is a deeply personal spiritual practice using drumming to move deep into a meditative state. Within this state, you communicate with compassionate helping spirits in non-ordinary reality for the purpose of healing and guidance. In this workshop, you will discover how to find and work with your helping spirit toward healing, and how to incorporate shamanic journeying into my existing spiritual practice. No experience required. Please wear comfortable clothing, and bring the following items: An eye covering (bandana or securable eye pillow), Any blankets or pillows you require (some yoga blankets/mats will be provided), A pen and notebook
