Stone Labyrinth : Healing Stones : Alternative Medicine to treat Anxiety Depression

Over 10,000 years ago, the ancestors of Native American tribes began offering stones to the body for natural healing and wellness. Stone Medicine applies these ancient traditions in ceremonies using healing stones, gem and crystal stones, and various animal 'medicines' or energies and herbal medicines to heal the spirit body, emotional & physical body.

Inyan Pejuta : Whole Body Wellness Shamanic Healing

In Native American belief, the Stone Nation have healing power and hold the ancient wisdom of the world. They see stones as our historians, for all of evolution is recorded in fossils and geological activity that is evidenced in the Stone Tribe.

The techniques of Stone Medicine help the body in self healing and are not just intended to return to the physical body to wellness, but the emotions and the spirit as well.

By clearing the body of negative energies and reconnecting it to the healing energies of the earth, the body's ability to heal itself is reestablished.

Most ancient healing traditions describe an energy field that surrounds the human body.

Modern science is beginning to study and discover the properties and effects of this morphogenetic field. It is within this field that the resonance patterns of our life experiences, beliefs, and inheritances from our ancestors, genetics and ways of thinking are stored.

These imprints or resonance patterns propel our life in a certain direction by attracting people, situations and experiences to us.

People often blame the circumstances of their birth for their current life. But we’ve seen, in countless public figures, the power to overcome their deep traumas and break through the odds into a life of wild success. It’s important to remember that those public figures were once just like us, ordinary people with struggles and dreams, facing obstacles.

Shamanic Healing

Deep in the jungles of the Southern continent the medicine people, for the past 500 years, have protected and carried on the knowledge of the power of certain energies and earth elements to heal disease and illness: emotional, physical, and inherited. 

These traditional native practices are used to help you heal and understand the meaning of your life.

In shamanic healing traditions emotions are viewed as energies and they are understood by the Shamans and used as powerful energies to accomplish many goals.

Emotions are valued as tools that are unique to humans, with which they can manifest new realities.

Both negative and positive emotions can be utilized. The experience of fear, for example, gives us an opportunity to confront, acknowledge, and transform our boundaries. And when we feel love we become powerful beyond measure. Those who feel love and give love are able to receive love in return and are able to accomplish any goal.

By releasing our negative patterns or emotions through Stone Medicine and Shamanic Practices and integrating new imprints, you will be able to break free of old patterns and consciously create your life from the place of clarity, fluidity, abundance, joy and fulfillment. 

Shamanic Healing is based in love and compassion and it works for our complete and total wellness: mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. When you recode the limiting patterns you’ve inherited or imprinted through negative experiences, you make way for new experiences, and open to positive, powerful outcomes.

Healing Hand : Native American Symbol: healing symbols

The spiral is a universally accepted symbol of eternity and in some traditions, it symbolizes the energy of all creation. When the solar spiral is used to the make the shape of a hand, the resulting figure is believed to be infused with therapeutic energy. The Healer's Hand or the Shaman's Hand, is an ancient symbol of healing and protection and it is considered to be representative of the curative powers of a Shaman.

You may have tried traditional therapy and not experienced the type of results that you were hoping for. You may find yourself stuck in the same self-defeating patterns year after year. Whether you are battling with depression, or being called to clear unhealthy patterns, and receive freedom from your past traumas, or you desire to be more fulfilled and bring your dreams into reality, shamanic practices have served our wellness for thousands of years.

The latest understanding in neuroscience, biology and functional medicine validate the profound and lasting results you can achieve with shamanic practices.

The Shamans believe there are two kinds of illnesses... some that are created by our daily behavior or habits and some that are family, environment or socially and spiritually related.

Most depressed and anxious people are more susceptible to illness & negative experiences, which can create a cyclical effect that feels never ending. Love, understanding and compassion are key for the successful healing of depression, disease, & illness: mental emotional, or physical.

Inspired by Native American Healing Arts where the wellness of body and soul intertwine, Inyan Pejuta offers a combination of therapies for the body, mind, soul and spirit.

The most valuable investment we can make in life is on our personal and spiritual development. We live in a world where too many people have too little time away from the ubiquitous distractions of our smartphones, constant expectations of self, the demands of others, and reminders of our personal and professional goals.

When you create spaces for your true essence and creative spirit to show up, you open up the part of your brain that holds your most magnificent ideas.

Creative imagination is the capacity to think and act beyond the boundaries of our current selves. To allow ourselves space and time to express our souls creatively is to unlimit our joy and allow ourselves to open to flow.

Even in seemingly dormant times, we are in transition. Losses and gains are in constant play. We are the change-agent, and we are changed. Even without toil, we transform. So, wisdom advises us to open our hearts to transition; to honor fully what is passing, to learn from all that unfolds, and to welcome what arrives at our door each day with courage and curiosity.


"After the retreat I currently don't feel stuck . Before I did not have the courage to move forward. I need to keep moving forward, and stop procrastinating. Things may come up as a set back, but I will prevail. I am moving forward. Even though, I am not totally sure of where I am going, I am certain it is in the right direction." — Vickie L

"I’ve done a lot of self-help, self-development work on my own, but somehow I hadn’t ended up getting anywhere or feeling consistently happy. I was ok, but life just seemed to keep on going, one day to the next.

When I got hit with a big and unexpected life transition, I knew it was time for a change. But I had no idea what to do next.

Working with Chloë has given me a sense of security and strength in my life that I have never before possessed. I understand the truth of my existence at a deeper level and know how to source my inner strength. Things have begun to fall into place in my life, that I never imagined were possible for me, before my work with Chloë." — Lisa B

"My two favorite experiences were receiving stone medicine and journeying by drum/rattle and your guidance.  With the stones, I felt awakened and opened to receiving what was needed, and possibly missing.  It's a bit difficult to explain...but I liken it to chakra opening and patching auric voids.  Working one-on-one and having the opportunity for real-time guided journeys was so beneficial in that the experience was very real...it definitely felt more authentic and helped me very much." — Gina S

"An invaluable aspect was the opportunity to experience the magical land of Skywater Hollow and receive Stone Medicine.  After my retreat, I experienced a profound healing, release and shift around belief systems and patterning that was showing up in my marriage.  After receiving Bury the Soul [Stone Medicine | Inyan Pejuta] I chose life and to live from the place of my soul's calling." — Marlee F

"Before I started working with Chloë, I was depressed, lost, and out of hope. I didn’t believe that could ever change, but I was seeking. In six weeks I had this new awareness that I couldn’t explain, things looked the same, but I felt different. I was shocked.

Even though I still had bad days, I started to understand my life and who I had been all this time, and why.

I realized that I was unhappy because I wasn’t being the person I wanted to be. I was getting to know myself, my true self, for the first time in my life." — Paul S

    Though my initiation into the realm of Healer began in Peru, I live in North America in the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley. A few years ago I was given a vision to return to my birthplace of Virginia and begin offering healing retreats and immersions on my land for those seeking a greater connection to their own divinity and life purpose.

    I regularly lead journeys to Peru, where we sit in sacred Ceremony with my Teachers, and also make pilgrimage to Machu Picchu.

    I am a certified in multiple healing modalities, as well as a professionally trained Life Coach, and have received professional accreditation in such methods as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programing), & as well as Yoga Instructor & Meditation Instructor certifications.
