Tikkun HaNefesh תיקון הנפש
|Spiritual Guidance & Shema-nik Healing||
Repair of the Soul
Rachmiel’s healing work and guidance is the result of years of intuitive shamanic and mystical experience, and intensive study. A life-long seeker and boundary crosser, he has regularly received guidance in non-ordinary reality.
He is dedicated to sharing spiritual engagement with others, using Spiritual Direction and shamanic practice to offer healing and guidance. He brings a profound presence to the task of holding space for others, while getting out of the way to allow them to discover themselves in spiritual relationship with self, others and the cosmos. From that rootedness, he works to help you to realize your wholeness. His experience is integrated in "Shema-nik" practice - Listening for the Sacred.
Rachmiel has studied eastern and western spiritual traditions, seeking the wisdom of pursuing a fulfilled, spiritual life. He earned a BA in Philosophy and has been granted rabbinic ordination.He has trained intensively as a shamanic practitioner and healer, studying ‘core’ (trans-cultural) shamanism, as well as Tibetan Bön, Celtic and Jewish shamanic practices. His teachers include Nan Moss and David Corbin, Larry Peters, Tom Cowan, Rabbi Gershon Winkler, Myron Eshowsky, Alicia Luengas Gates, and Michael Harner. He has been trained to teach shamanic journeywork by Sandra Ingerman. He has also received training as a mashpia ruchani , a spiritual guide, at Lev Shomea, Institute for the Training of Spiritual Directors in the Jewish Tradition. After 15 years of Jewish sacred studies and ministry work, he received smichah (rabbinic ordination) from a Bet Din (adjudicating committe) on Tu BiShvat 5776 (2016).
