companioning others in healing and wholeness Shauna Janz, MA
I companion others through difficult experiences with dignity and resilience. I am dedicated to nurturing the sacred and community in the work of healing. I guide others into the wholeness and gifts that are their ancestral birthright. I am committed to tending belonging in our world, within ourselves, with each other, and with our other-than-human kin.
I provide a variety of training options and group process experiences rooted in trauma-awareness and resiliency to organizations, businesses and communities to increase their capacity for healing and connection through difficult transitions. I teach internationally, and also offer 3-day grief ritual facilitation trainings. I welcome Invitations to teach in your community.
I provide ancestral healing so you can connect with your elevated ancestors for guidance, healing and support. Your ancestors can help tend to your grief, help heal inter-generational ancestral traumas, mend unhelpful family patterns, and ensure that your loved ones who have recently died are well and cared for. Restoring ancestral connection also supports you to discover and embody more fully your inherited gifts and abilities.
Whether supporting an individual, a family, or facilitating a community experience, I recognize people in their energetic and holistic selves - mental, emotional, physical, social, cultural, and spiritual - and as embedded in the wider field of the other-than-human world. I also strive to embody and work from a place that understands my own historical and social location as a colonial settler of European ancestry. I acknowledge the ongoing impacts of colonialism, racism, sexism, earth disconnection, and other cultural wounds that work to erase the diversity and dignity of human and other-than-human experiences and expression. My work and offerings are trauma-aware and anchored in the resiliency of the human spirit, healing justice and animist values.
I am grateful to live and work on the unceded ancestral lands of the Coast Salish Lekwungen-speaking people.
