About Jane Burns:

I began my own spiritual practice in the shamanic tradition in 1996 after being diagnosed with cancer. Upon declining recommendations for chemotherapy and radiation treatment, I undertook instead a lengthy spiritual journey in order to heal myself. During that process, I received my first power animal from a spirit guide, and my education in shamanism took root.

I have studied core shamanism, soul retrieval, and shamanic teacher training with Sandra Ingerman, Celtic Shamanism and Faery Doctoring with Tom Cowan. I became a shamanic practitioner in 2005 and a teacher of shamanic journeying in 2007. I am a Celtic Reiki Master and also bring to my practice over 20 years of experience in the fields of psychic and medical intuition, energy medicine and past-life regression therapy. As an active member of the Society for Shamanic Practice (SSP), I led a workshop on the Celtic Medicine Wheel at their 2009 Annual Conference and co-led their 2012 East Coast Regional Retreat, and currently serve on the editorial board of the SSP Journal. I became a member of the Shift Network Faculty in 2019. My book, Up a Tree: A Novel and Shamanic Handbook, is available on Amazon.com.

“Jane Burns is a remarkable shamanic teacher and writer. Her clarity, the depth of her wisdom and experiences is such a guiding force for anyone looking for spiritual tools to navigate the changing world we are living in. Anyone who takes a course with Jane Burns or reads her work will receive practices and a spiritual foundation to reconnect with oneself, nature, and all of life. Jane’s teaching is truly brilliant.”
