Are You Ready to Step into Your Full Authentic Power?
Are You Looking for Personalized Support in Those Difficult Times?
Are you a First Responder or Essential Worker in need of Emotional and/or Spiritual Care?
In my regular mentoring program, I offer a unique form of spiritual mentoring to clients who are ready to step into their authentic power and be the soul-centered leaders that our world needs.
In the current world circumstances, I am honored to extend my work and offer flexible support to those in need of emotional and spiritual care in those difficult times.
You may feel distressed, overwhelmed by a whole range of emotions, particularly but not only if you are on the front line – as a first responder or an essential worker.
You might not know what you exactly need and might not feel ready for a shamanic healing, and that’s okay. I will listen intently and tailor the support to your needs, your belief system (or absence of one), and your life style.
In the past few weeks, I have witnessed how much just one hour-session can make a drastic difference in one’s life, not only providing an immediate relief – a sense of peace, hope and clarity – but leaving you fully equipped to continue to transform your reality and build your resilience. For three decades, I have worked in the most challenging world crises. I know what it takes to support resilience for healthy minds, bodies and spirits, in extreme circumstances.
Don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss if we could be a good fit. I will give you an honest feedback in terms of how I can help you.
It is important to note that although my role may entail some counseling, it is not one of a therapist. It can be an adjunct to, not a substitute for, conventional medical or psychological services.
The description below applies to my regular mentoring program but I hope that you will find through it some insights about I usually work.
Why would you want to mentor with me?
There are as many personal reasons for seeking spiritual mentoring as there are people seeking it.
- You are a healer yourself, a community or spiritual leader looking for someone to walk with you for a while, in a sacred yet non-religious and non-denominational context; you want more than “just talking”; and you also want someone who has an international experience of mentoring leaders of all walks in life. I mentor a fair amount of ministers and individuals ordained in different faiths; my role is not to substitute or duplicate what they receive in their own denomination but to provide that extra support that ensures that they are, indeed, following their own personal calling, finding a different kind of guidance and gaining very concrete skills that they might not find elsewhere.
- You may look for a spiritual mentor to get ongoing support on your path, because you feel lost or stuck or you find yourself at a significant turning point of your life, and need someone to be on your team, someone to serve as your personal growth partner. You may feel isolated or not knowing where to start to shift your life and answer your true soul purpose or even understanding what it is;
- You have a sense that you have some personal work you need to do but don’t know where to start or how; you don’t feel that speech therapy is necessarily for you or want something that is more “hands-on” and will give you very concrete tools to work with;
- You are ready for more than incremental changes, and long for deep, life-changing transformation. You want someone to be accountable to so that you make sure that you actually make the changes that you want in your life.
- You want someone who is not going to impose a set formula but meet you exactly where you are. The whole point of my mentoring other people is not to have them follow what I do, but to fully nurture their own dreams and creativity, their own unique paths and calling. Each of us is absolutely unique and this is that diversity that our world needs. And this is what I cherish the most about our humanity. For the past 30 years, I have worked on supported individuals and communities around the world, across cultures and traditions, to find and develop their own resources for resilience, so I know what that looks like.
In all cases, don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss if we could be a good fit.
How does mentoring with me work?
By experience, I know that I cannot have a preconceived agenda, curriculum or end goal in mind. I have to meet my clients exactly where they are along the way.
I require every person to go through one shamanic healing session with me before embarking on a spiritual mentoring program. This serves as a very comprehensive “in-take.” It gives us a deeper understanding on what is happening and helps support your transformation process at a very deep level. I will also gives us a road map that we can start with, knowing that I will always meet you where you are in the moment in order to make sure that you receive exactly what you need in each session.
Each session is one-hour long and can be in person or at distance (by phone or Skype). Sessions can occur on a weekly or bi-weekly basis (we will decide this on our first session and will re-adjust as we go). A commitment for a minimum of sept consecutive sessions (see package in pricing) is required so you can see both the radical shifts that you might be looking for, and sustainable results. I also ask for commitment to regularity; this is essential for the work and a condition to see powerful results in a short period of time.
Some mentors (or coaches) hope that their clients can continue with them for months if not years — it’s recurring business, true — but I approach my work as a mentor differently. I believe that you, as a client, should be empowered, set free. So I design each mentoring program – specifically tailored to your personal needs, as they evolve from week to week — so that afterwards, you will have a personalized, authentic roadmap and a full toolbox (that will be yours only and will work with your life) to keep growing on your path. Our work will also be very practical and apply directly to the unfolding of your everyday life.
In between sessions, I am available by email and often provide distance support, offering concrete suggestions and feedback if necessary. If the sessions are bi-weekly, I ask for an update in between sessions to make sure that things are evolving as they should and that your are doing fine with the “homework.”
What kind of tools or techniques do I use when mentoring clients?
As a spiritual mentor, I use a vast range of tools that integrate body, mind and spirit. I never work only at one level.
I draw upon ancient wisdom that can be found in all religious and spiritual traditions and teachings, and combine them with modern consciousness, and the results of the latest research in psychology and neuroscience. Why? Because I take the infinite possibilities of neuroplasticity seriously. I therefore brings into each mentoring session both my abilities as a shaman, and the knowledge and tools that I am currently developing with an international team of neuroscientists, spiritual and social leaders.
Meditation, dream work, shamanic journeying, mindfulness practices, EFT techniques and concrete exercises/rituals (to name just a few of the modalities that I realy on) will be used as necessary.
You will come away with your personalized tool kit for addressing emotions and distorted thought patterns, fresh perspectives on new ways to be in your life, and practices to support your ongoing journey into wholeness.
What is my commitment to you as your mentor?
I offer a safe and sacred container for you to deepen your self-exploration and personal transformation.
My commitment to you is to be a loving spiritual companion, a witness and, when needed, facilitator on your journey. I will always respect and support your independence and, even more important, your own inner power. I also always fully respect the specificity of each person’s path and beliefs.
What is your commitment as a mentee?
The main thing required on your part is an open and willing attitude to work on yourself, be heard and held with love and compassion, to receive insights and guidance while being constantly empowered on your own journey.
This program will also require commitment on your part to do some homework in between sessions (including some journaling). In all cases, it will be practices and exercises that apply directly to the unfolding of your everyday life, and support the type of transformation that you are looking for. So my mentees generally don’t feel that it is “homework” but I really require people to commit to their growth.
I will be honored and humbled to serve as your personal growth partner.

Spirituality Is an Experience, Not a Knowledge, Not Even a Practice “If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.” ~ Joseph Campbell If you have followed me for a while, you know that I live by Teilhard de Chardin’s proposition that we are spiritual beings having a human experience, and not the other way around. What may sound like pure rhetoric has drastically changed my perspective on life and my way of being with everything. I know that it has also had a profound impact on many of my clients. One direct consequence is to really embrace spirituality as an experience, not a knowledge, not even a practice. Here is what I mean. Spirituality calls from a different kind of “knowing” Sometimes, clients ask me for book recommendations and I don’t have a readily answer. I prefer to ask: What do you want to learn and why? What do you think that you would do with this new knowledge? What kind of book usually resonates with you? Is it science? Biographies? Novels? Poetry? Indeed, in spirituality, often times, books (or, nowadays, YouTube videos or online seminars) are important not so much for what we might “learn” through them, if anything. Their value will come from how they might help us reflect and dig deeper within ourselves. In actuality, any “learning”, if it really moves us, often feels more like a remembering or… Read More
