"The Universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything you want, you already are." -Rumi
As a Certified Hypnotherapist through the Foundation of the Sacred Stream in Berkeley, CA, Sandra has received expert training in Depth Hypnosis, Shamanism, Buddhist Psychology, Energy Medicine and Hypnotherapy. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Sociology.
Sandra's path of healing service has been informed by two separate diagnoses and recoveries from cancer, as well her work since 2004 providing hands-on, unconditional support and advocacy for pregnant and birthing women navigating the complexities of the initiation of birth and passage into motherhood. Energetically "holding space" in the birth environment, and grounded in her connection with spiritual allies, she has been privileged to assist the safe and empowering passages of hundreds of new lives into this world.
In the summer of 2014, Sandra journeyed to Peru to join an expedition with Alberto Villoldo and Marcela Lobos of the Four Winds Society. Taking part in daily teachings and ceremonies, led by renowned medicine men and women, deepened her understanding of the ancient teachings of shamanism and of the Q'ero. She received the Munay-Ki rites of initiation directly from these master shamans and lineage keepers in ancient places of power in Peru's Sacred Valley.
In 2016, Sandra completed a 9 month advanced intensive course, The Path of the Universal Shaman, with don Oscar Miro-Quesada, a respected kamasqa curandero and altomisayoq adept from Peru, and founder of The Heart of the Healer. She received extensive training in the powerful Peruvian Pachakuti practices designed for spiritual evolution and healing.
Sandra brings together these exceptional resources to connect her clients with the healing forces and wisdom of the universe. She offers contemporary applications of shamanic practice and hypnotherapy for problem solving, healing core issues, personal growth and (re)connecting to one's authentic self.
