Working with Lenore has literally been a life-changing experience. She’s helped me refine and pursue my goals while providing the perfect amount of support, instruction, and guidance to help me find my way forward. She’s a gifted counselor and guide who employs her enormous kindness, insight, wisdom and skill to assist the seeker.

- Judy Lawrence, San Francisco
When I sought a soul retrieval with Lenore, I described myself as 'shredded.' Three months later, I don't even remember what that felt like! I remember that word best described how I was feeling, but I really can't recall that feeling from my new place of wholeness.
- Elisebeth VanderWeil, PhD, Seattle, WA
I began seeing Lenore with the hope of healing the severe trauma of my childhood. Since our soul retrieval work, the wall of pain that had surrounded my heart for most of my life is gone. I now live a deeply heartfelt, more authentic life. I highly recommend this intelligent, compassionate and wonderful woman to anyone on a journey of spiritual recovery.
- Judith Federico, MSW, San Francisco, CA
It is such a relief to have returned to the land of the living! Immediately following my soul retrieval, I experienced a subtle but positive shift in my outlook, in that I was immediately and keenly aware of and awed by the utter beauty of the natural world around me. Trees swaying in the wind, for example, filled me with joy and wonder. Within weeks, the crippling anxiety, fear and depression that had gripped me for years gave way to a calm curiosity and genuine gratitude for this life I’ve been given. I completely lost interest in smoking; that stubborn habit simply fell away without effort. I have gained a stability and “sturdiness” in my outlook that had been lacking for years. I could not be more grateful for these gifts of healing, which I attribute directly to our three months of intensive work together. Thank you.

Working with Lenore for several months proved to be one of the most powerful healing experiences in my life. New to shamanic work at the time, I felt like I was in very safe hands with her. She showed utmost integrity and respect in the process, and I will forever be grateful to her and all the helping allies involved.
- Christine D., Washington State
Soul retrieval is the single best thing I have done for myself. Thank you for all the wonderful work you and your spirit helpers have done for me!
- Isa, San Francisco Bay Area, CA
My life has really changed since the work we did a year ago, and I feel really connected to the pure sunshine I felt when you blew the first soul part back in, and the confident part of me that wants to euphorically ride the roller coaster. In the last three months, I have been feeling so genuinely happy and grateful and alive, maybe more than I ever have. I wanted to let you know how things are unfolding, and say thank you so much!
- L.S., Los Angeles, CA
Working with you has brought so much back into my life that was missing. I have gained so much more from working with you than I have in all my years of psychotherapy. Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart.
- Debbie, Portland, OR
I came to Lenore with an issue I had struggled with for 22 years: I have an adult daughter who had a painful childhood -- she now has a wonderful life, but I was stuck in the pain of the past. I had spent many hours and a lot of money looking for a solution.
Since my soul retrieval, the pain about my daughter is completely resolved; she and I are closer than ever, loving each other as two healthy adults. I am filled with a lightness and a JOY that is almost indescribable, and I laugh to think about how serious and dramatic everything was, before.
Without a doubt, this has been THE MOST TRANSFORMATIVE experience of my entire life! and that's saying something!!
I can't quite find the words to express my gratitude for Lenore and her love and support I felt through the entire process!!!
- Beryl Ryan, RN, San Francisco Bay Area, CA
The healing work I did with Lenore was essential to my healing and spiritual journey. She is very thorough and safe to be with. ANYONE who is unhappy in their life in any regard. or just wants a good tune-up. would benefit a great deal. I highly recommend her.
- Ed Ferrigan, Great Life Blueprint Coaching, Durango, CO
I have had many sessions with Lenore, and every one was a revelation, a cure, a deep healing, a teaching. It is reassuring to know that anytime I am not feeling well, I can have a session and I will come back to my “true” self, full of joy and renewed energy.
Lenore was one of the first shamans I studied with, years ago. Her professionalism and extensive knowledge made a deep mark on me about the shamanic techniques I was just beginning to grasp. I feel blessed to have Lenore in my life.
- Maria Pedroza, Shamanic & Psychological Healer, Berkeley, CA
As a result of Lenore’s healing, I found a peace that had eluded me for decades. Her healing work allows the inner wisdom of the innate good inside us to reveal itself, and that is a phenomenal gift.
- Leslie Gregory, Physician Assistant, Portland, OR
I thought you might like to know how my life has changed since the soul retrieval you did for me five years ago. These changes could not have been possible without the work that we did:
I have changed my career, and this month I will complete my 4-year Bachelor of Science degree in Business with a specialty in Information Technology. I find this amazing, since prior to our meeting I was not able to finish anything I had started.
My relationship is going well and we are about to celebrate our 14-year anniversary.
Thank you so much for your help and wisdom! I am so much happier in my life.
- Isanna, Berkeley, CA
Lenore is a gifted healer. She has incredible integrity and is very knowledgeable about all aspects of Shamanism. She brings a peace and sacredness into any room.

Teaching & Training Testimonials
Participating in Lenore's Shamanic Empowerment teleclass was one of the best decisions I made this year. It brought so many gifts to me. Lenore has a wonderful way of listening and teaching that makes it possible for someone who has no experience of journeying or someone with limited experience to 'go for it.'

I have always felt very respected by Lenore and her teaching. I just walked into this completely new and strange experience and felt completely welcome and comfortable from the very first moment. I’d be hard pressed to say I’ve met a more generous, and ethical, and integrity-filled person.
- Laura Alves, Portland, OR
Lenore's classes have profoundly and powerfully altered my life and way of being in the world, and opened me to energies and life forces I never knew I could directly contact. I overcame my waiting to spiritually connect, and with her guidance learned to request direct contact with other realms of existence for healing, guidance and knowledge. I recommend her teachings to everyone.
- Jason Kastrup, Portland, OR
I recently took Lenore's 8-week Shamanic Journeying class. It was a truly empowering experience for me. This was my first class in Shamanic Journeying, and I found Lenore to be a very calm, clear and focused teacher.
Her easy-going manner allowed me to relax into the experience of connecting with spirit guides, and learning to trust the information that I was receiving.
I wholeheartedly recommend her class for anyone who has a curiosity about this world and all its mysterious ways!
