Athena Allread, Reiki Master, Contemporary Shaman

The Shaman is one who walks between the Spirit and earth realms on your behalf and on behalf of the greater Good. Through my writing, my private sessions and group classes and trainings, I serve my mission of bringing you closer to full alignment and true embodiment of your Self. I work with many of our helpers from the Spirit realms, angels, guides, masters and your own Higher Self to guide you through whatever is blocking you from that alignment.

I came to shamanism after a decade in architecture, after painful loss and mysterious illness. When all hope was lost, I opened up to the recommendation of a friend to visit a shaman and that day not only was I healed but my life was changed forever. I’d seen Spirit and visions of others’ stories since I was a small child, had a deep fascination with psychic phenomena since childhood, and studied yoga, astrology, tarot, buddhism and anthropology ‘for fun’ in my teens and twenties.  After that visit with the shaman, I gave myself permission to step into full alignment with my Self, to own the gifts of sight and feeling that had run through the bloodlines of the women in my family for ages.

I’ve trained with shaman Terri Pippin The Medicine Woman, Karuna Reiki Master and Psychotherapist Dr. Toni Hemmerich of Trinity Healing and Wellness, world renowned past life therapy regressionist Dr. Brian Weiss, I’ve completed Sandra Ingermans Medicine for the Earth training and my studies continue.

I take a contemporary approach to the ancient ways, integrating modern tools into the traditional practices of journey and ceremony. I am a Doreen Virtue certified crystal reader and work with the crystals on many therapeutic levels. I work with various angel oracle and tarot decks. I practice traditional Usui Reiki and incorporate it in with each session however is needed. My past life work is a tandem journey regression experience where I fuse shamanic journey with traditional regression techniques. Influenced by Tibetan Bonpo shamanism and Yoga I hold a warm and gentle sacred space for realization and transformation to unfold.

Because Spiritual work is not bound by time and space, all of my work can be done across the distance. I work with clients from coast to coast by phone, video and in person. Join me on an upcoming retreat to meet in person and enjoy a full immesion experience!

Client Testimonials

I was a bit uncomfortable with the prospect but Athena has an amazing ability to make a person feel relaxed and at peace.  The process was gentle and meditative.

When the session was over, Athena told me what she witnessed during our time together.  She revealed amazingly specific details about my past – too specific for chance.  In one experience, [details shall remain only with my closest of friends] she had described with great precision; she simply said “it was real.”  I was overwhelmed with relief and hope.  I believed again.

From that one experience, I have a renewed sense of purpose and connection to…whatever it is that is beyond our world.  Despite my reservations, this ‘alternative’ approach is not at all in conflict with other belief systems.  In fact, it is quite complimentary: focus on love, connection to others, and the realization that existence goes beyond our perception.  I am eternally grateful for that experience and would recommend it to anyone regardless of religion, ethnicity, culture, or belief.

From the moment you are in Athena's presence, you relax. Her beautiful spirit coupled with a voice that sounds like she is happily calm, is a treat in itself. I trusted her 100%, and was confident if anyone could retrieve the pieces of my soul that had gotten away, it was her.

As she finished I felt a sensation in my belly and a few tears fell. I think at that moment, my confidence returned.

Three weeks have pasted since the Soul Retrieval and the changes I feel are  positive. I am lighter, more  grounded, and overall happier. This experience was something I did for myself. I get my hair and nails done, I buy new shoes, why not take care of my innermost self too. Many times our soul is forgotten because it is hidden on the inside of us, but we must remember that is the very part that makes us SHINE!
