What We Do
The Lodge of the People offer a variety of services that include spiritual healing, education, and more. Each of the them have their specialities, complimenting their own individual qualities. Autumn and Daniel will work with clients individually or as a couple. If you are interested in receiving assistance from Autumn and Daniel, please review the the list of services below.
According to anthropologist and psychiatrist, Dr. Roger Walsh, shamanism is "a family of traditions whose practitioners focus on voluntarily entering altered states of consciousness in which they experience themselves or their spirit(s) interacting with other entities, often by traveling to other realms, in order to serve their community." Shamanic healing is an art and skill that has existed since the earliest traditions of humankind, and can be found in any culture. It is not exlcusive to any one group of people, and its modalities are as varying as colors in a rainbow. Both Autumn and Daniel are trained in many shamanic skillsets, but primarily work with a mesa: a shamanic altar designed for transformative healing for the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental levels of being. For more information please visit the Shamanic Healing page.
A doula is a woman who is trained to assist a mother during childbirth and who may provide support to the family after the child is born. Autumn is a CAPPA-trained Labor Doula and Childbirth Educator. She supports other women and their families through the journey of pregnancy and childbirth by sharing the tools of visualization and meditation, chanting and vocalizing positive affirmations, and using movement and other tools to ease the sensations of labor.
