Traci's background and experience combine for powerful and exceptional tools and abilities to bring positive, life changing shifts for her clients.
Traci started on the Shamanic Energy Medicine path in 2005, after spiritual soul searching and knowing the importance to learn to from our native ancestors how to live in a more balanced, honoring, and respectful way on the Earth with all of nature, and between our mind, body, and spirit. She began exploring Buddhist meditation and mindfulness practices, and this was combined with a huge fascination with the latest science of how our energy and attention affect our reality and health. She was guided to jump into the Light Body School founded by Dr. Alberto Villoldo of the Four Winds Society, which focuses on the healing teachings and practices of the South American shamans of Peru.
Traci has continued deepening on the Peruvian shamanic medicine path through amazing and profound work with Linda Fitch, the former CEO, Dean, and lead teacher at the Four Winds Society, who is now offering stand alone in-person classes, expeditions, and on-line trainings. Traci is a Full Mesa Carrier in the Andean medicine lineage and has traveled to Peru on many different journeys with Linda and others to work with native shamans in the mountains, jungle, and northern coast.
Traci also studied as an apprentice of EarthThunder, a local Cherokee medicine woman, healer, and teacher of traditional shamanism from her indigenous families and her homeland here in Idaho for over 3 years. Traci received her Birth Song spirit name, Earth Echo, from a soul retrieval by EarthThunder, which she describes as a tuning of voices from Traci's first life of creation. The main teachings included personal healing practices and the shaman way medicine wheel of this land. EarthThunder transitioned to spirit in September 2018, but continues to support, guide and influence Traci's spiritual path and Life Work in profound ways.
Traci also completed the Shamanic Reiki Master Teacher and Life Empowerment Program created by Llyn Cedar Roberts. This incredible home-based year-long training deeply weaves shamanic medicine teachings with Reiki energy healing in a beautiful way, and has empowered Traci's work to a new level.
She also holds certifications as a Usui Holy Fire® III Karuna Reiki® Master, Animal Reiki Master, a Shamanic Reiki Master Teacher, Reiki Drumming Practitioner, and has professional training in Tom Kenyon Sound Healing. Traci's primary Reiki teachers include Colleen Benelli of Reiki Lifestyle, Dr. Robyn Fuerst of Healing Journey Options, Michael Baird & Laurelle Gaia of Infinite Light Healing Studies Center, and Stacey Gibbons & Jonathan Hammond of Shamanic Reiki Worldwide.
Traci was raised on farm/ranch in southwestern South Dakota, near Martin, between the Pine Ridge and Rosebud American Indian reservations. She moved to Idaho upon graduating from college with a BS in Chemical Engineering and worked 8 years in that field. Knowing of needed change, Traci left her career and moved to the beautiful mountains in Sun Valley/Ketchum, ID and embarked on the shamanic wisdom path. Traci also lived on the beautiful Island of Kauai, HI for six years, and now makes her home in the awesome mountains of the Wood River Valley. She enjoys getting out in nature as much as possible year round, hiking, skiing, biking, and communing.
