“Your pain is a seed of love that forgot to grow.
Water it with awareness, warm it with kindness, sing to it with courage.
Your pain, loved by you in this way, will transform into grace.”
As a shamanic healer in private practice for over twenty-five years, I offer my mind, body and spirit as a vessel to bridge the world of human concerns and the worlds of spirit.
As a psychotherapist, I share emotional, behavioral and spiritual skills so clients become self-healing, rather than projecting their innate self-healing abilities onto others.
I’d like to assist you in developing a new kind of relationship with your self; a relationship that transforms your own inner self into the grounded, nurturing, creative companion and friend for whom you’ve always wished.
As a seasoned and respectful navigator of the inner planes, I know that the pathways into inner space can be daunting and confusing.
When I assist clients in exploring these lesser-known worlds, profound healing and transformation happen.
Let’s walk those pathways together. Let’s transform those old hurts in you so that your authenticity shines through with a new brilliance. Prepare to achieve full blossom!

Testimonials About Sessions, Workshops & Ceremonies with Luisa Kolker
“If I needed some shamanic healing or an honest to goodness, down to earth, competent, authentic therapist who has done her own work on her own personal journey and will treat you with love and respect but kick ass, as well, Luisa is where I would turn.

—Ann Filemyr, Academic Dean of the Institute of American Indian Arts
“Luisa is one of the best examples I know, of someone who does spiritually-sourced work, and has a solid, grounded and clinically sound background and sensibility, so that NOBODY could mistake mystical work with woo-woo when they experience her. That is a truly great contribution.”
—James Michael Nolan, President of Southwestern College

“Thank you so much for the ceremony and workshop yesterday. I found the ceremony very meaningful and life changing for me. I was so pleased with the information I was able to access. I find your ability as a shaman to be very powerful, focused and so positive.
You have helped me beyond what you could imagine. Especially appreciated in these group sessions is your teaching ability. You have things planned out well and are very organized. You know how to prepare us, give us time to check in, give us appropriate time to get up and stretch, take bathroom breaks, etc.
I feel safe in your groups. I know you are in control and won’t let one of the participants take over, as has happened in other groups I’ve been in.
I look forward to more time in your excellent company and enlightenment. Thank you so deeply. I feel like a very fortunate woman.”
—Connie D., Retired Psychotherapist
“I’ve studied the concept of Source Energy for the past fifteen years. And I had never run across an effective way to truly connect with this energy. That changed immediately after learning and experiencing Luisa’s 3 Energy Body Healing Model. I’ve learned how to connect with Source through my Back Energy Body and that has created several breakthrough healing experiences for me.
Lots of healing practices have given me a taste of different dimensional realities; Luisa’s 3 Energy Body Model has integrated them into my being.”
—Glen McKerrihan, Santa Fe, NM
