Reiki is based on the idea that “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. When our energy is low then we are more likely to become ill or uneasy. When our energy is flowing freely and with ease, we become more contented and happy in our lives. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
As part of the healing process, Jackie also offers the opportunity to incorporate aromatherapy, stones and crystal therapy, as well as other forms of natural healing modalities that will enhance your experience whether meditation, yoga, or empowerment sessions.
*Distance healing available.
equine assisted psychotherapy
Explore the self through the power of horses. Jackie, in collaboration with S.T.A.R.S. in Sioux City, offers a unique experience to explore shadows. Horses offer instant and accurate feedback to our emotions and states of being, and for this reason, equine psychotherapy can help move you through processing and healing.
Through this process, you can open yourself to learn how to build trust, sense deep emotion, cultivate creativity and curiosity, build safe boundaries and meaningful relationships, and begin to create mindfulness yoking body + mind + breath.
depth psychology using metaphor + myth + shadow work
Depth psychology assists in making our unconscious conscious. Diving deep into the unknown, depth psychology uses the things we unconsciously do or think as a way to manifest the world we live in. The psyche speaks, we need only listen deep.
Similarilty, shadow work is the process by which we explore the dark side of the psychye. Often times, our shadows are more easily seen by others before they are by ourselves. Shadow work explores what the yogis call samskaras (or habits) that block us from living authernticall connected with our heart.
By this, we can use symbolism, myth, metaphors, archetypes, dream analysis, and unconscious actions and words to explore the shadow.
