Sedona Shamanic Journey Insight Sessions and Mentoring

Pathways of the Modern Day Mystic

The intention is to support you as you open your vision to worlds often hidden from normal view and enter the deeper reality of the unseen universe and your own Higher Self.

As a modern-day mystic traveling the shamanistic path, you personally engage by direct experience with the Great Mystery.  New insights and choices emerge as you experience:

  • Shamanic Journey skills development
  • Other supportive seer skills that support Conscious Evolution
  • Ceremony that flows from session insights to activate change

Sandra Cosentino guides these personalized mentoring sessions
based on more than 3 decades of integrated spiritual practice.

Shamanic Insight Sessions are held at outdoor settings
in the Sedona or Cottonwood area.
They are described below and are also part of 2 – 8 day retreats.

On-line Shamanic Insight sessions and mentoring available. 
Please first read this page to get a sense of the range of topics we can work with.

Shamanic Journey is a spiritual experience with the greater field of intelligence. 

“The core shamanic experience is really simple, timeless and universal. Shamanic journey is the act of sending one’s consciousness into the spirit world.
It allows the journeyer to view life and life’s problems from a detached, spiritual perspective not so easily achieved in ordinary reality.“ (Tom Cowan)

These are natural, innate talents that can be developed and are compatible with all spiritual traditions.

You have directly felt experiences are that are beyond our daily understanding.  But they can potentialize a shift in your inner vibrational field into new possibilities. 

“We are wired to transcend our historical experience of being human. Through disciplined practice we can effect transformations in every aspect of our life, and these internal changes make big changes in the world around us. As you become more unshakable in the full awareness of your extraordinary nature, you transcend old definitions of yourself and express more power, clarity, confidence and energy.” Evelyn C. Rysdyk

You also have support from breath work, ceremony, related inner pathways skills, and sound healing in each session.

Single sessions are available or you can combine them into a 2 – 7 day retreat.

When you work with shamanistic pathways over multiple days, you gain many more insights.  This is because you:

  1. receive daily feedback from me, your dreams, signs, knowings and
  2. daily you process, clear beliefs that don’t serve, work with your own resistance to change, and activate Higher Self guidance

Please see Retreats overview page here

Session Topics

Sessions can be combined if you have limited time, but are more effective done in a sequence over several days.

Your intention or goal can be the focus of a session.

On-Line Shamanic Insight Sessions:

On-line sessions provide an opportunity for deepening skills, exploring topics, support for your new creation, and more.  You can create your own personalized insight retreat at a leisurely pace and without having to travel to Sedona.  I recommend, however, that you consider coming to Sedona for the nature connection, ceremony training and advanced work with soul retrieval and extraction.

You are actively learning by your own direct experience at a pace that works with your life.

Session Mentor

Sandra Cosentino has been working with shamanic journey for more than 3 decades.  She has a dedication to empowering others to be their own Seer.

Her mentoring/teaching work is based on deep experience exploring and connection to the energies of wild nature, leading and attending ceremony, lucid dreaming, vision quest, mindfulness practices, meditation and insight retreat facilitation.

Creator gifted me with the ability to hold space for people, to see and reflect back their soul’s gifts in an honoring, supportive way. I resonate with the energies of this land and the her spiritual overseers. I create a powerful, yet safe and sacred space for you to connect with these energies, with your own Light. But your own willingness to be in loving communion with all that you are without judgment gives wings to your journey!”

Each of us has the innate ability to obtain guidance direct from Source for our own healing and vision. Sometimes we just need someone to reflect back our light, to give us new tools, to nudge us, give us a new insight when we are up against a stuck place, to encourage and support us to go through the doorway of our deepest fears.
