Michelle Sampson has been practicing Core Shamanism since 1999, after a long search for a spiritual practice that resonated with her experiences. While working with Native American traditional activists in the late 1990s, she was advised to research her European ancestors and revive their shamanic practices. Her spiritual mentors include Bekki and Crow of the Church of Earth Healing. She has also trained with the late Miss Beatrice Waight of Belize. Her approach to spirit work involves earthiness and humor, as she, like her clients, seeks to balance the spiritual and the mundane in daily life.
