Beth Sturdevant

Shamanic Healer, Spiritual Healer, Energy Medicine Worker, Master Reiki Practitioner

Beth is a registered Reiki Master practitioner and teacher, and has trained extensively and professionally for over 6 years in Spiritual Healing, Shamanism, and Energy Medicine through the 8th Fire Sacred Alchemy training programs; ancient evidence-based therapeutic modalities that have been practiced since the dawn of time. Beth is passionate about helping clients courageously and compassionately challenge their limiting beliefs, allowing them to explore how various experiences and traumatic events impact their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. Her intuitive guidance and strength-based approach to healing, helps guide clients into the subconscious aspects of their concerns, to better access information and heal what has caused them to veer off course from the true nature of their heart and soul, their “why”.

Every client has a unique story that brings them to Beth’s healing table; experiences that have influenced their actions and choices and shaped the direction of their lives.  Whether passed down ancestrally, intergenerationally, karmically or experienced personally in this lifetime, working with Beth brings to light negative patterns and coping mechanism that can be fully understood on a conscious level, helping to gain greater insight into the root causes of what is causing them the most concern, so they can start to create healthy, sustainable changes. While we can’t get back to where we came from in the past, we can start to grow from where we are today.
Working with Beth is the beginning of that journey.



I love helping people see themselves again, and feel whole.

Given the nature of what I do, and my passion for healing and personal growth, I compassionately challenge my client’s limiting beliefs, and help them to explore how various experiences and traumatic events have impacted their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. My intuitive guidance and strength-based approach to healing helps my clients explore their subconscious using, to gain better access to information so that we may heal what has caused them to veer off course from the true nature of their heart and soul.


Every person has a unique story that brings them to my healing table; experiences that have influenced their actions and choices and shaped the direction of their lives.

While the list of concerns I am capable of helping people with is wide and extensive, some examples of why someone may come to see me for, are;

  • Grieving the loss of a loved one
  • Navigating transitions in life
  • Feeling stuck in life
  • Healing from breakups
  • Resolving long standing anger and rage
  • Wanting to feel more confident
  • Manifesting love and abundance
  • Letting go of the past
  • Greater connection to personal purpose and direction in life
  • Healing from the effects of traumatic events
  • Forgiving oneself for mistakes they’ve made
  • Forgiving others for mistakes they have made
  • And more…


  • I believe that healing is easy. I believe that healing does not need to take a long time, and that with the right mentor, the right healer, and the right mindset to embrace change, everyone is capable of it.
  • I believe that we do not need to be controlled by the past and our inner wounds, and that by embracing both the dark and the light aspects of our nature, we find greater peace and balance in ourselves, and our lives.
  • I believe that we are all deserving of compassion and forgiveness, and that the root of what causes us the most pain and suffering, is the pain and suffering that has been passed onto us ancestrally, intergenerationally, and through our own experiences.
  • And that by healing the effects of these experiences, we not only help to bring peace and harmony to our own lives, but by extension, to the lives of those we love around us.


Starting out on any new adventure, any new journey – especially a healing one – can feel uncertain and unsafe. Apprehension and doubt are completely normal, in fact, most of Beth’s long-term clients when first starting to work with her, had doubts as to if she could help them.

Most of them had no prior experience with Spiritual Healing, Shamanism or Energy Medicine work (energy healing) – yet they still felt called to work with Beth. It is through consistent work and experiencing the healing effects of what she does, where clients soon came to realize that knowing the details as to how she does what she does, or how it works, makes no difference in the results – all that matters is that it does.

Some people feel called to work with Beth solely for Energy Healing, others are ready to dive deeper on their path and into their subconscious mind through Shamanic and Spiritual Healing.

Reiki Healing is a form of alternative therapy rooted in Japanese origin, which emphasizes the use of universal energy to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Practitioners of Reiki believe that this energy flows through all living things and that its balance is essential for health. During a session, a Reiki practitioner gently places their hands on or near the recipient’s body in a series of locations, to balance out the nervous system and remove energetic blockages. This process helps to access the body’s natural healing processes, reduce stress, and foster deep relaxation. Its non-invasive nature makes it accessible to people of all ages and conditions.


Shamanic healing is an ancient spiritual practice found in various cultures worldwide, aimed at restoring harmony and balance within an individual’s mind, body, and spirit. This therapeutic practice involves a shamanic healer entering an altered state of consciousness, through trance and journey work, to connect with spiritual and energetic aspects for the sole purpose of gathering information and working towards a healed outcome for their clients’. Through these journeys, shamans seek to retrieve lost soul fragments, remove negative energies, and gain insights for their clients. While its methods are deeply spiritual and symbolic, many find shamanic healing to be profoundly transformative, addressing both physical ailments and emotional or psychological issues at their core. Shamanic healing often addresses deep emotional wounds, traumas, and imbalances, aiming to bring about profound transformation and holistic well-being. While its techniques and beliefs vary, the core principle of connecting with spiritual and energetic realms for healing remains a unifying aspect of most shamanic traditions.

INTENSIVE HEALING PROGRAM (8 1-hr weekly sessions)

Often the major themes and negative patterns expressed in people’s lives have slowly developed and grown over time and require more attention to fully resolve. In order to allow for the healing of a client’s deepest issues and concerns, more time is required than simply one session.  8 weekly sessions allows for Beth to use a combination of Reiki, Shamanic Healing, and Energy Medicine, to help her client’s safely and compassionately explore and heal the subconscious and energetic aspects of what is causing them the greatest distress, resolving them at a deeper level.


One of the greatest honors of being a Medicine Worker and Spiritual Healer, is the earned Medicine Rites that are passed down from an ancient lineage of healers – specifically, Medicine Rites that enable Beth to be of service in helping people during the most vulnerable and sacred of moments through life and death. Holding space in support of people during the final moments of their lives, helping them to transition peacefully as they prepare to embark on the soul’s greatest journey beyond what we know, is one of the most profound gifts one can offer a Soul.

Whether Beth works with a person before they transition, helping to compassionately process emotions that may come up, preparing them in the time leading up to their transition, or she offers death rite ceremonies after a person has transitioned, ensuring that that their Spirit in at peace and travels exactly where they need to go.  Working with people & their families during these sacred transitions, is something Beth holds with utmost honor and respect.

An added offering for those who wish to be serenaded by the peaceful & healing sounds of music, Beth – a highly acclaimed classical cellist – also offers the soothing sounds of her cello, accessing deeper levels of relaxation to people as they are guided along their journey by the graceful & harmonious sounds of music.

*Due to the compassionate nature of this work, and the sacred time needed to allow for a peaceful transition, exact times & prices may vary. Depending on location, additional travel costs may be required.
