About me:

My name is Mi-Shell

I am probably best known as a shaman / healer in Muskoka and Southern Ontario.

I am a Registered Nurse and a Jungian Therapist by training, but, first and foremost, I am following in the footsteps of my Siberian ancestors, who were Tofalar people, a small tribe in what is today Tuva in Siberia. My great grandmother was the the healer-shaman of our people. My grandma Aniani and  my father (Ada) followed a shamanistic worldview and in it I was raised and followed it ever since.

From my mother’s side I am Manoush Gypsy.

My maternal grandmother, Elizza, was a ‘shuvihana’ = healer for Animals and people and she also read the crystal ball and Tarot from about 1896 to 1945.

I read and use Tarot in my work with my clients and as a way of honoring my Manoush side and use daily card draws for personal reflections and meditation.

Here is my Tarot blog:

http://voicewithinthecards.wordpress.com/

I have practised, taught and used shamanism and shamanic healing pathways with my patients, clients, in schools, Pow Wows and the health care  system.
I lead circles and gatherings that focus on teaching, healing, ritual, drums and drumming, human growth and well-being.

My personal interests are – guess what – shamanism, cards, drums and drumming, nature, wildlife, and – most of all – people. 🙂

Here I want to post about some of my work as a shamanic practitioner of Siberian indigenous heritage, as a healer, about my visions, my poems, my shamanic artwork. Many early posts also will be about my explorations of the world of Tarot and how shamanism and Tarot cross-pollinate each other.

However, since then I also have opened a separate blog just for Tarot and forays into the world of Oracleswith the URl see above.

Well, sometimes a post may fit in either blog, then I make a not on both and you decide…..

  2. Thanks for your trust in me, Cat! 🙂
    Great article too!

    C is for the Cosmic egg we all emerged from
    C is for consciousness – ordinary and shamanic 😉
    C is for the creativity that comes from consciousness
    C is for the chances we take
    C is for the ceremonies we attend in order to feel community
    C is for Curing
    C is for all the Chotghors we battle while curing
    C is for the chants we are given by the Spirits
    C is for Cycle of life and our place in it……
