I began my shamanic journey with Jan Engels Smith, the founder of LightSong, in 1995, with soul retrieval and journeying class. Most of my learning, initiations, revelations and breakthrough experiences have come during LightSong courses and ceremonies. I have watched LightSong blossom into this most amazing school and community! I am delighted and honored to have Jan as a cherished mentor and friend. I am one of the Associate Teachers and Healers for LightSong and also sit on its guiding council. I am honored to pour lodge for the community and sing for LightSong ceremonies. LightSong is truly the premiere school for learning about and experiencing the shamanic way of life.

Schedule a Sound Healing Session with Lauri

Nourish your soul through vibrant, intentional sound.

Lauri offers sessions in shamanic sound healing that address the spiritual aspects of emotional, mental and physical health and well-being. We all, from time to time, feel like “I am just not myself” or “I feel like I am missing a part of myself”. This is common, and a reflection of soul loss. We all lose parts of our soul through trauma, illness, negative events or relationships that sap us. The resulting loss can create illness, negative behavioral patterns, reoccurring mental or physical pain. These can easily be alleviated through shamanic healing. Healing ceremonies may include soul retrieval, extraction, power animal retrieval, Reiki, classic sound healing, deposession, cord-cutting, and others. These ceremonies all can restore well-being and enhance vibrancy in your life. 

Sessions available in-person & remotely.
