The Shamanic Empowerment Collective brings together a diverse community of individuals who share an interest in Earth-based spirituality, Indigenous wisdom traditions, Animism, and shamanic practices.  We believe that we all have the capacity to heal and transform ourselves. We offer classes, workshops, events, and community rituals that engage people with all levels of experience directly in shamanic practices that support them in claiming personal power, self-knowledge, and sacred connection, while also anchoring deeply in respect, humbleness, and integrity in relationship to the origins of the work we share.  The Shamanic Empowerment Collective meets every other month in Vienna, VA at East Meets West Yoga.

Collective founders, Angela Blueskies & Helene Garrovillo, have deep roots in the sacred traditions from the Peruvian Andes and Amazon, and have been journeying to Peru to work with shamans, mentors, healers, medicine men and women for over a decade.  Angela & Helene co-vision a world where people live in balance and harmony with the natural world, with themselves, and with each other, and believe that through sharing sacred work in community, personal and global transformation is possible.

The Shamanic Empowerment Collective offers classes, workshops, events, and community rituals that seek to be both deeply meaningful and authentic, as well as affordable and concise.  Meeting for a couple of hours on select Sunday afternoons, we offer the opportunity to come together in community to explore practices connected to animism, shamanic practice, and Native and indigenous traditions.  Topics may include:

  • Shamanic Journeying
  • Ancestral Lineage Healing
  • Soul Retrieval
  • Energetic Cleansing & Clearing
  • Despacho & Fire Ceremony
  • Work with Guides, Totems, and Elemental Energies
  • Medicine Song Healing
  • Honoring the Dead / Ancestors
  • and more!
