Elaine's journey has involved a life long fascination and inquiry into meditation, sexuality and the spirit/soul realms. This was catapulted by a series of life challenges followed by crushing grief event into a major shamanic shift a few years ago, which led her to this work.
Elaine is a group facilitator for Shamanic, Tantra and Somatic Sexology based events. Elaine is a member of the Lead Faculty team for The International School of Temple Arts (ISTA). ISTA is a collaborative group of teachers, facilitators and guides in the international field of Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Intensives. These are currently held all over the globe. Elaine has facilitated ISTA events around the world including England, Scotland, Iceland, Bali, India, Brazil, Sedona, Guatemala, New Zealand, Israel, Ireland and Berlin.
Elaine was medical diagnostic scientist in direct patient care for 20 years, she brings that experience of the physical manifestations of dis-ease to her current transformational healing & wellness practices. Elaine holds a Bachelors degree in Biomedical Sciences and a Masters degree in Medical Imaging. She bridges the gap from science to spiritually with love and respect for both.
WHY DO I DO THIS WORK?
I am driven by my desire for a greater depth and breadth of experience in my life. A richness in my connection firstly to myself - my spirituality, my sexuality, my body, my inner wisdom/shaman - and with others and the greater universal energy aspects of being alive.
My shamanic journey began following a deep personal loss, my grief cracked me open and drove me to question many aspects of myself and how I was living my life.
I began to explore meditation, tantra, Breathwork, shamanism, mindfulness and conscious sexuality as a portal to personal power and freedom. What I discovered changed every aspect of my life, I now long to share what I have learned with others.
With my academic and medical science based background I came to these new experiences with a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism, what I found was that my background complemented and enhanced my understanding of this new reality.
Elaine has studied and trained with many of the pioneers & leaders around the world in each field of her practice specialties.
