We enjoy helping individuals, couples and groups celebrate life’s many events through ceremony officiating and mentoring.
After a 35 year career in western medicine and a lifetime personal journey and initiation into spiritual awakening Jody stepped fully into a path of service as practitioner, teacher, minister and mentor for her community nearly a decade ago as Essence of Spirit Ceremonies. Through the world view of Shamanism and many other Universal wisdom teachings Jody has provided support for many, many people world wide.
Ordained in 2011 as an Interfaith Minister from the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine Jody performs ceremonies for all life events and holds an all inclusive ministry practice. Jody’s belief is that witnessing another through deep listening is the path to true healing.
Jody has studied Core Shamanism with Dory Cote of the Center for Earthlight Healing; The Foundation for Shamanic Studies and others for many years. She treats all spiritual practices with the highest level of respect and ethical boundaries.
Jody facilitates a variety of workshops and programs of varying levels and has ongoing face to face mentorship sessions for support and deepening of one’s spiritual practice.
Please see our list of workshops and programs.
