Rooted&Open

Root into the body and open the spirit to heal

"I have experienced Shanti’s depth of wisdom since 2007. In that time, she has been my first go-to when things in my world feel chaotic and out of control. Her guidance is grounding, soothing, and nurturing; and at the same time challenging and energizing. She gets underneath what is on the surface to the bigger perspective and helps create shifts by opening one’s eyes to a new direction. It is with great pride I offer my recommendation of her services."

"I have taken part in Shanti's 'mama nurture circle' as well as her 'womyn's moon lodge', and can't wait to participate in more events! Shanti has an amazing ability to put people at ease immediately, and to create warm, safe spaces that allow people to share and connect.

At our first nurture circle get-together, I was amazed at how Shanti was able to gently encourage everyone to really delve and share so openly their personal issues with women they had just met, and as a result we formed a connection that is so rare, yet so essential, within the group. Though certainly challenging at times, the nurture circle has undoubtedly been a highlight of each week for me, and I would always go home feeling so balanced & at peace.

Regardless of whether you are well versed in meditation and self-reflection, or whether this type of activity is completely new to you, you will undoubtedly grow & benefit from her events."

"I've had the pleasure of attending a few of Shanti's gatherings including the Mama Nurture Circle, Meditation for Mom's and Pregnant Women, and Women Who Run With Wolves Book Club. My first interaction was through the Mama Nurture Circle. At first I wasn't sure what to expect, besides joining a new community of women in a similar life stage as myself. My reason for attending was to connect with mothers and women in a deeper, more meaningful way. Shanti enabled the group of women in my circle to open up, set aside judgement, and truly create a sacred space. She came to each circle ready to lead our group through a variety of meditations, thoughT provoking readings and questions, while also being open and vulnerable as a member of the circle. Through this experience, I've become a more grounded and balanced individual. Shanti has given me a unique taste of several different meditation methods, Reiki, crystals and essential oils. I'm excited to continue exploring these new experiences and learning more about myself with Shanti's thoughtful guidance."

"I found Shanti during a low and lost point in my life. Newly a mother of two, I was struggling to act from my truth. My energetic body was off, I was suffering from insomnia and my relationship with the Divine/Spirit/God was lost (which led to struggle in my relationships). Shanti absolutely popped me out of the darkness. Her background in therapy, her understanding of the energy body, her powerful led visualizations/meditations and her spiritual depth were a springboard for my healing journey. She truly empowers her clients- helping discover inner wisdom + spirit guides, asking powerful questions, providing tools for personal meditation and healing in the energetic body. She is a healer, in many capacities. I encourage anyone looking for spiritual depth, inner wisdom and personal healing to see Shanti. She is gifted!"

"I met shanti during what has since become a pivotal point in my life.  I was floundering as a mother, a daughter, a partner, and a professional.  i was lost.  since then, i have embarked on a journey of self-discovery, in which shanti has been instrumental.  shanti has helped me learn to calm my mind and spirit, to open myself to others, to sojourn into my past in order to find my present path.  because of shanti, i am finally healing my soul, and i am so grateful."

"If you are up for depth, transformation, and re-igniting your inner light - Shanti's offerings are it! I've taken two classes with her now where we connect as divine, real, authentic beings. My favorite was the chakra class. Shanti has true insight, wisdom, awesome intuition and patience. In her class I grew, stretched, was challenged, supported, learned, connected to myself, cried, and I laughed! I also met a very supportive group of women who were interested in being their best selves, and shining light on their shadows while magnifying their natural gifts. They supported me in my shadow work, too. Shanti has a marvelous way of getting to the core of issues for ultimate expansion into abundant greatness! Her classes are very nurturing and support inner-healing. I believe that Shanti was put here on Earth as a divine goddess healer to help people. She is gifted, and anything - in any capacity that she creates or offers - is well worth your time and investment for personal growth. I loved her guided meditations and journaling and crafting times. I loved the REALNESS. I am grateful for my experiences and am eager to partake in more. With gratitude"

"After attending Shanti's first Rooted and Open group, I took away new tools for coping with an ever-changing world, and refreshed ones that I had forgotten about. Shanti is professional, kind, warm, and an amazing counselor on a professional and personal level She has an amazing ability to tease out nuances of conversation or group with such effortlessness. Shanti is a just amazing and I can't convey how wonderful she is other than to say this. I always feel lighter and more grounded after spending time with her. She is a force."

"i have been fortunate to participate in several of Shanti's CIRCLES and classes, including the Chakra class, the mama nurture circle and the sacred mama circle. Through these EXPERIENCES, i have learned a great deal from shanti.

She has done and CONTINUES to do her own healing work. this makes her a powerful teacher, right down to the cellular level. also, she is fierce about directing PEOPLE inward toward their growing edges. personally, i found myself learning things from her both by osmosis and on a conscious level. shanti blends traditional techniques, the wisdom of the group experience and the SHAMANIC healing of her unique CELLULAR wisdom to provide a container for personal healing.

She has a bag full of resources and is generous about sharing them. In addition to a traditional counseling background, she has studied TRE trauma techniques, which  gives her insight into working with the body and nervous system. Shanti is masterful at creating sacred space, and using ritual to facilitate healing. Moreover, she uses meditation to ground and deepen people in their experience and insights. I feel grateful to have Shanti as a teacher, shamanic healer and community member here in Bend. She brings connection and awareness everywhere she travels."
