Hi! I'm Carrie Bancroft, and I'm a shaman and shamanic marketer based in Seattle, Washington. Truth is, I'm really more of a cosmic talent agent who helps connect you to your life purpose and authentic self. My particular shamanic ability is to see your spark, your potential for greatness, and to work with my spirit guides to fan that spark into a flame.
My Shamanic credentials: I began my spiritual and shamanic studies in 2000 with Isa Gucciardi (Michael Harner tradition) in San Francisco. I then had a two-year apprenticeship with Dory Cote (student of Sandra Ingerman) from 2005-2007; Dory is also my current mentor. I am also currently working with Char Sundust of the Sundust Oracle Institute as a teacher.
Shamanism is an ancient healing art practiced by almost every indigenous culture in the world, from pre-written history to today. It's a mixture of spiritual practice (honoring the earth by attuning to the natural world, to self and to spirit), physical and emotional healing, and sometimes prophesying.
I help people of all ages and professions solve problems from the mundane to the grandiose...and everything in between.
One of the lovely things about shamanism is how versatile it is. Whether you're battling a serious illness, dealing with heartache, struggling with a professional problem or feeling lost in life, shamanism can help provide healing, direction and insight.
The following is a partial list of healings, rituals and blessings that I provide. If you don't see your concern listed here, please ask me about it.
I've worked with a variety of clients on a number of issues, from help with healing physical illnesses (cancer-related pain, autoimmune disorders, infertility) to psychological illness (anxiety, trauma, depression, anger management, grief), to general life assistance (career, moving and love advice). Hover over each image to see what people are saying about my work.
Carrie offers multiple methods of working with her as a shamanic practitioner. For those looking for personalized healing, a one-on-one session with Carrie is highly recommended. Please note that first time sessions are longer (hence the variance in price).
If you'd like to start with an introduction Carrie and her methods, you can also purchase a dream analysis or attend one of her upcoming classes.
