Complimentary Modalities that bridge Emotions, mind and Soul

The Golden path of the shamanic way

Welcome to Heartland Healing Arts, a place to find peace and healing in our chaotic world with an inspirational blend of complimentary modalities that bridge emotions, mind and soul.  Nature is the great healer and here at Heartland it is at the heart of our practice. The symptoms of being out of balance with nature have flooded our world breaking down inner and outer ecosystems. The aim is to create a sanctuary where we can cultivate a sacred relationship with nature and ourselves and reawaken how this benefits all life on a physical and spiritual level. Our modern times are calling us to implement new effective means for healing this crisis of separation. Heartland offers a bridge through earth based shamanic practices, ecotherapy, energy healing and spiritual counseling. These modalities work together to heal the split within body and soul; healing and clearing past issues while offering new ways to enlighten and uplift the spirit for lasting change. 

Healing Ourselves, Healing the Planet

If you feel out of balance, want a deeper meaning to your life or need support clearing what is blocking your path, you've come to the right place. The Golden Path of the Shamanic Way offers healing ways to guide you home to your true self so you can live your life with meaning, purpose and love.

Cara was immersed in the healing powers of nature, sacred sites and celtic shamanic teachings during her 4 years living in Ireland. This life changing journey opened her eyes to new ways of transcending the dissonance of relatedness and belonging inherent in our modern culture. She now offers shamanic energy healing and counseling to help guide us back to interconnection with Nature and the sacred feminine. Through private healing sessions, group shamanic journeys and teachings, nature walks, classes and trainings, Heartland offers a breadth of experiences to support healing. By reawakening our energy body and indigenous soul we can remember our place in the Sacred Web of Life.

Cara is a highly intuitive healer and her shamanic practice is extraordinarily deep and connected to spirit in a beautiful way. She is highly gifted and a blessing to whomever finds their way to her.

If women remember that once upon a time we sang with the tongues of seals, and flew with the wings of swans, that we forged our own paths through the dark forest while creating a community of its many inhabitants, then we will rise up rooted, like trees.” (If Women Rose Rooted)

 Shamanic Healing

For shamans, illness is seen as an imbalance with spirit and nature. Shamanic techniques help to reestablish harmony between body, spirit, mind and emotions. Depression, anxiety, ptsd and other mental illnesses are often symptoms of negative energy attachments, soul or power loss. Cara works with the spirit world and nature to bring healing and balance back to the client. Sessions can be powerful and life changing with lasting positive results often in much less time than traditional psychological therapy. 


Spiritual Counseling

People can benefit greatly from talking about their personal issues. Just having an attentive, empathetic person to share with can bring immediate relief. Counseling offers a safe non-judgmental environment to support the release and relief of pain, grief, shame, confusion and other difficult emotions. Cara provides holistic and spiritual counseling sessions where you can find your way home to greater peace and self acceptance. Healing is possible for everyone through the process of self awareness, feeling and releasing emotions and taking concrete steps to change.
