Stephen Feely

Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner

Many of us live in cities and places where we have a tendency to become very detached from our natural environments, but if we take the time to immerse ourselves in nature periodically, a whole new world can open up to us. 

According to my guest today, Stephen Feely, we can gain this sense of a greater energy of life and creation, of what he calls an earth mother energy, that will nurture us and give us a greater sense of why we are here on earth. 

The range of experience we can have in nature is so vast. Walking in the forest on a mountain, playing in the creek, touching stones with bare hands and feeling moss beneath bare feet, getting quiet, hearing songbirds, and watching foxes, deer, and bear — these are a handful of the experiences that Stephen recounts from early childhood served as a genesis for much of his later training and work in life. 

This training and work, which involves a certification in Reiki healing and 20+ of environmental education and horticulture therapy, has allowed him to empower people to transform their lives and revitalize as they undergo their journey to wholeness.

Today, Stephen is a senior faculty in The Four Winds Society, Institute for Energy Medicine. He also runs his own private practice called Pure Revitalizing Energy and is the founder of his own school, the Pampamesayok Shaman School, both of which allow him to help people gain access to ancient wisdom for modern living and become professional practitioners in the shamanic arts.
