Linda Nadeau – Shamanic Healer

I created this blog because my dear friends were having a difficult time obtaining information about my services. I invite comments and suggestions. By becoming a follower of this blog you give me a way to reach you.

Shamanism, my spiritual practice and healing modality, is most simply a methodology which utilizes going into an altered state of consciousness at will to bring back information for the healing of others, the community and the planet. It is a natural practice which has been around cross-culturally for over 6000 years (my sister the anthropologist tells me).

Spiritual healing can support allopathic treatment and assist healing of the physical, mental and emotional body.  While each healing is different, possible services include:

  • Soul retrieval (and power retrieval)
  • Extraction (of illness or other intrusion)
  • Restoration of Vital Energy
  • De-possession
  • Curse removal
  • Various energy modalities
  • Divination
  • Psycho pomp (Helping spirits cross over)
  • Space Clearing & Sacred Space Creation
  • Ceremony (Marriage, Funeral, etc. – Licensed Minister) I have a special talent for bringing joy to ceremony.
  • Healer mentoring – see letters to a young healer on my blog.
  • Seminars and Pilgrimages – Great power is available both by working in groups and by learning from our elders.
  • Facilitating healing caravans

Brief Biography – While my spiritual quest began in childhood, highlights of this adventure during the last 25 years of focused study and practice include initiations, pilgrimages, visits to sacred sites and working with and learned from indigenous healers in:  Nepal, Peru, Mexico, France, China, Indonesia,  Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Canada, Ghana, and Brazil.

My U.S. teacher include: Larry Peters, Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman, Sandra Harner, Barbara Brennan, Bhola Banstola, Brooke Medicine Eagle, and many other fine teachers.

My deepest connection has been into the Tamang Tibetan Bon healing tradition learned from Larry Peters and several Tibetans healers in Pokhara, Nepal  and the Tibetan refugee camps nearly.  I find myself most often drawn to the ceremony of that tradition.  However, I had found shamanic healing wisdom to be universal knowledge which has allowed me to successfully share in healing work in many traditions.

Since the physical and spiritual aspects of healing need to work together, I have obtained several certifications as a Personal Fitness Trainer and work to ground healing in the physical body through experiential learning to provide tools for clients to integrate healing energy shifts as part of their personal growth and healing.

How can shamanism and ones regular religious practice work together? My oldest son and his fiance were raised in different faiths but neither are actively practicing. They are getting married 10-4 and a Shaman is performing the wedding. Difference is so wonderful.Thank you. Darlene

Dear Darlene-
I have heard it said that the great teachers of all religions could sit and eat together peacefully. I believe the is true because the peace, compassion, love and service that is common to all religions would be shared qualities. It is important not to confuse the dogma and traditions of differing religions from the deeper values mentioned above. Accepting our differences and looking for the similarities goes a long wait to creating harmonious relationships. Shamanism is a way of life stressing service to others, the community and the planet which can coexist with most religion when practices with loving acceptance of our differences.

We are considering your practice as a means of officiating our marriage. We are interested in learning more of you and I personally…. find that if we were to communicate via e-mail, I could become more familiar with your practice. I hope that you want to respond.
