Michelle Hawk (she/her) began practicing Shamanism in 2003. Her core lineages come from Hungarian and Celtic shamanism. A naturally gifted psychic and intuitive channel, Michelle’s work with Alchemy, Shamanic energies and multiple certifications as a Master Healer allow her to offer the deepest level of transformational work. She mentors and trains practitioners in Ethical Shamanism, Alchemy and the healing arts, and helps people master their intuitive gifts and magical birthright. She is a host of the Shaman Sister Sessions podcast.

  • She highlights the limitations of the Western clinical therapeutic model and emphasizes the importance of emotional awareness in psychotherapy
  • Michelle warns against serving sacred plant medicines without a proper invitation and permission from the plants themselves
  • She believes that the quest for purpose is often externally motivated, and a true connection to the animistic worldview can provide a deeper sense of aliveness and meaning
