1-on-1 Healing Mentorship
 

Guiding you through deep transformation. 

Guiding you to that next level of trust with yourself.

Walking the path with you, as a fellow healing human.

This offering of mentorship and support is what I wished I had when I went through my “dark night of the soul.”

Back then, I knew I needed help but had no idea how to ask for it or who I could trust.

I was struggling to understand who I was and my deeper purpose in this life.

My health was in a precarious balance as I was sifting through the dis-ease that I inherited and began peeling back the thick layers of sediment from a painful childhood.

And in my heart, despite all the challenges, I knew there was so much more that was meant for me than this profound confusion and pain.

So I searched, I dug deep, then I dug deeper. I spent over 25 years devoting myself to a path of healing myself…and I’m still going.

Studying and practicing yoga, meditation, mindfulness, nutrition, cooking, qi gong, martial arts, writing, poetry, photography, creating art, dreamwork, reiki, plant medicine, ceremonial practices, spiritual traditions, singing, chanting, prayer, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, Chinese orthopedic massage, bodywork, Thai massage, craniosacral therapy, herbalism, integrative holistic medicine, scientific research, self-care, and self-love.

Losing loved ones along the way to addiction and illness,
yearning and diligently cultivating the partnership I always dreamed of,
becoming a mother and reparenting myself in the process,
and being devoted to living life with an open loving heart,
have been some of my most relentless teachers.

I had to pain-stakingly learn and piece together all of the practices, awareness, and modalities that held the keys to unlock my suffering over decades.

My personal healing journey laid the foundation for me to become a healer.

It has developed my empathy and compassion.

It continually stokes my fires of discipline and perseverance. And it keeps me focused on my path because I know what is at stake.


Having worked with almost 1,000 people 1 on 1 over the past 11 years, it has become very clear to me when people need that “next level” support.

When mentorship can make all the difference for someone’s life trajectory.

"Shanti’s a healer who meets me right where I am at any moment with just the right practice"

“I never knew what ‘holding space’ was - let alone what a transformational gift it could be - until I met Shanti. In a time of deep darkness, she stood witness. When I questioned if I would really change, she believed I would. And as I experienced things I didn’t understand, she took my hand and guided me through. Shanti’s a healer who meets me right where I am at any moment with just the right practice. Be it prayer, meditation, movement, energetics, acupuncture, touch, sound, she senses what’s needed, teaches the way, and shows up with her whole heart in every step.”

For over a decade I’ve seen the same pattern: people who commit to collaborating in working with me and who show up for themselves consistently by doing self-care and following my recommendations see results.

For some people coming in for 1 hour of treatment once a week or twice a month is exactly what is needed to resolve pain, improve digestion, get better sleep, release stress and get back on track to feel better in their body, mind and emotions.


For others, that approach isn’t enough to significantly and sustainably change physical, physiological, and mental-emotional patterns and behaviors that may be years, sometimes decades, in the making.


You might be suddenly propelled into a healing crisis and desperately need a period of intensive support from someone who can help you navigate what you’re going through with more grace, ease, and insight.


Or you might just feel a deep calling to and can help you activate your own inner healer.
You may feel results during a session and right after a session, but the results might be fleeting.

 

Do not mistake “what you’re doing not working” with deep seated, complex patterns that require sustained effort to change.

I began offering 1-on-1 healing mentorship in 2023 because a past patient of mine reached out to me needing very concentrated support.

 

I have only mentioned it to people who I have felt could really use this kind of support.

 

Now, I am opening up mentorship publicly, because I know what is at stake and how having me in your corner in the right moment can change your life.

What I have seen time and time again in doing healing work with over 1,000 people over the past 10 years is that those who are committed to getting to the root of what causes them pain, discomfort, and anguish, will find answers, will consistently feel better and will work through deeper layers of dissonance.


The irony is that many times it is more about HOW and WHY you are on the healing path than being relentless in your pursuit of perfect health. (say more about this)

Many times it is about softening, being more tender and curious with yourself, than endless pushing, striving, demanding or trying to force things to happen.

And when things get hard, and your energy and will gets worn down, having someone who is a skilled healer, a compassionate, wise and seasoned soul in your corner, is EVERYTHING.

Because when you find yourself at a crossroads:

  • And you don’t know what to do

  • When all you can see is the challenge that is in front of you right now

  • You have tried everything and your progress has plateaued or things are getting worse

  • You have consulted with specialists but they aren’t offering you meaningful solutions

  • You know what you need to do but you’re not sure you can do it on your own

  • You know deeper healing, more joy, and more ease is what you want but you don’t know how to get there

This is for you if…

🟢 You are motivated and hold yourself accountable

🟢 You thrive more when you have more support (um, who doesn’t?!)

🟢 The person you are becoming is in stark contrast to who you have been and what you have been doing

🟢 You are ready to make healing a way of life

🟢 You are ready to activate your deeper abilities to help others heal and you need guidance and support as a healer

🟢 You are a medical professional or already an established healer or space holder (this includes mothers, fathers, empathetic humans) and you need help finding how to create a more sustainable existence where you feel more radiant, vibrant, healthy, and capable of fully offering your gifts and presence to the world without your health feeling like an insurmountable obstacle

This is NOT for you if…

🚫 You are comfortable where you are and don’t want to do anything different

🚫 You would rather figure things out on your own (more power to you!)

🚫 You want different results but you refuse to do the work to get there

🚫 You say things like “I did some healing years ago, so I’m good now.”

What do I see with people who work with me and commit to my containers?
(even if that means they come in weekly for 2ish hours and take all of my Rx seriously and work in lifestyle changes, mindset, etc.)

People who work with me and are committed to collaboratively working together:

 

  • Are more consistently kind to themselves, even when they get frazzled or frustrated

  • Get less ensnared in negative mental loops

  • Are amazed when they look back on their progress 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 6 months and 1+ years down the road

  • Are more willing to take risks and try new things because they are supported every step of the way

  • Deeply value my support and become long-term patients (they see results and they choose to keep working with me because of how much better they feel)

How do I know what level of support is right for me?

How do I know if I am ready for this kind of commitment?

Why I’m offering mentorship right now:
I’m deepening my level of support to offer 1-on-1 healing mentorship.


In working 1-on-1 with over 1,000 people over the past 13 years, I know that some people need more concentrated support.

This mentorship is for you if… (NEEDS TO BE EDITED)

Especially when people are going through a dissolution process - The world and identify that they knew is burning to the ground (the veils are thinning or pulled back completely)

The person they are becoming is unsure of how to get from who they used to be through the transition point where they are now, but they know it’s going to be a long stretch of unlearning and re-learning
(metamorphosis…catepillar, goo stage, and the emerging with new powers and insight)

A sudden event propels you into a deep and complete reassessment of who you are, how you operate in the world, your relationships (especially your relationship to yourself) (un-grounding - the earth beneath you breaks open)

Health is breaking down or gets to a tipping point of not being able to cope or scrape by anymore and you need more intensive support to

"I'm doing it and it feels so fucking good!"

"I will never forget that moment when we were in the treatment room and I looked at you and I was like, "Shanti, will I ever be able to do this? (Will I ever be able to get through this challenging period? Will I ever be able to radically accept myself, love myself and heal?) And you looked at me and said, "Yes" with full confidence. And you were right. I'm doing it and it feels so fucking good!"

"The perfect day of healing"

“In preparation for a day-long treatment immersion, we had a thorough phone call the week before. Shanti kept excellent notes of our conversation and my list of concerns and health issues. Based on our call, she put together the perfect day of healing for me. It is rare to find this level of personalized care and attention to detail. Her focus, compassion, empathy, and vast healing knowledge was evident and very much appreciated. I truly felt cared for all day and I continue to feel uplifted and reap the benefits from that day.”

"Everyone deserves to feel this good"

"Magical Shanti Ma is a gift from Heaven.  As a sufferer of chronic back pain for over 30 years and having tried multiple modalities in the past, I was starting to wonder if I would ever get deep relief.  As an integrative physician myself, I know that pain is multifactorial and multi-dimensional, from bio-mechanical to environmental and energetic layers to pain itself.  Anyone suffering from chronic pain has to be pro-active in their own healing.

 

I did a deep dive with Shanti. After the morning session, I came to a point of felt safety in my body that I had never felt before, EVER. And she hadn’t even put one needle in yet!  By the end of the day, I was bordering on an altered state of consciousness.  I no longer felt scared and was no longer fighting myself in my body. I felt grace.

 

What I love about Shanti is that she has multiple modalities. Other acupuncturists will leave the room after putting needles in, but she will stay and use sound healing, cranial-sacral or other modalities while the needles are in to maximize the body’s healing.  She held me with such tenderness that I had never felt before, by anyone. I realized I deserve to feel this good. Everyone deserves to feel this good."

"She's given me hope that I can do something about this"

“Jessica’s work has changed my life. She has brought my pain levels down from 7 (out of 10) to near zero. No, it wasn't instantaneous, but we worked together to figure out what things worked and what didn't. Maybe just as important as the lessened pain is the hope she’s given me that I can do something about this without surgery.”
