Crossing deep waters to access non-ordinary reality, on a spiritual pilgrimage, is a  journey of the soul back to ones true self.  The ancient Celtics identified this as an Imrama.  Standing at the edge of the sea, where land and waters join, the  veil is thin and one can slip through the boundary that eludes most humans.

The Imrama, much like the shamanic journey, is a process of entering into the Spirit realms for the purposes of healing, wisdom gathering, recovery of sacred familiar and/or soul pieces or meeting with ancestors.  This can be done on your behalf or you can learn to do it alone or accompanied by Deborah.

There are 3 levels to Spirit world:  Lower, Upper and the spiritual realm on this world.  Where the journey leads is dependent upon the intention of the work being done.

What does a session look like?

Once the purpose of the journey has been established and the intention made clear you will be asked to lay down (wear comfortable clothing) on a massage table.

Deborah will sit beside you and take hold of your arm, this is to establish a connection between you and she while the journey unfolds.  She will have a shamanic drum beat playing in order to facilitate her entering and exiting Spirit world.  The time of journey takes is unpredictable but normally 20 – 30 minutes is expected.

Once complete the journey is shared, again depending on the purpose, further ceremony may take place.
