“I followed the path to Spirit.”


Nancy is a Shamanic practitioner who offers healing sessions, workshops and ceremonies for clients and students. In addition to shamanic healing, Nancy offers Reiki which she has been studying and practicing with regularity for several years. Her office in Yarmouth, Maine is a safe container for her in depth work with clients. 

Nancy has been on a path to a deeper spiritual connection for most of her life. Her immersion into shamanism was literally sparked by a ceremonial fire and a subsequent search for a drum. Nancy first completed a one-year Shamanic Apprenticeship and two-year Hollow Bone Program taught by Dory Cote.

Nancy has also completed trainings in Soul Retrieval and Medicine for the Earth with Dory.

In 2017, Nancy participated in a vision quest in New Mexico with Sparrow Hart and Circles of Air and Stone. This experience deepened her connection with Spirit and affirmed her commitment to working with spirit, and life force energy.

Previously, Nancy was the teacher of a program that she created, Adventure Play, which spanned a period of 25 years. This work celebrates and nourishes children’s playful, creative and imaginative spirits. Nancy has written two books to support educators in this work: Adventure Play and Adventure, Play, Peace. Her current work with children supports their connection to the natural world and their own inner wisdom. Peace, compassion and wonder are at the heart of this work.

One thing that blocked me in my own healing journey was that I didn’t think I needed healing — I just wanted to go deeper into my own spiritual understanding of the world, and that took me to the deeper healing within myself.

Nancy has created a life that is in connection to spirit and therefore it is second nature for her to be receiving guidance during all the work she does.

Nancy is the real deal! She is open and authentic about her process and has her ego in check. Sitting with her is sitting with a dear friend who really cares.
