Erva Baden is a contemporary shaman who weaves together various healing modalities with compassion and humor to journey with folks who are committed to their own path of deep healing and transformation.
She is a Reiki master and has more than 25 years of experience in facilitating deep emotional process and release work nationally and internationally in men’s, women’s, and mixed-gender circles. She has also studied energy work, chakra healing, and core shamanic techniques under the direction of internationally recognized teachers.
For the past several years she has studied trauma recovery and the epigenetic changes caused by trauma, particularly the intergenerational effects of trauma experienced by one’s ancestors.
She is currently focusing her work on assisting people to reclaim their lives and to restore their souls’ radiance from the effects of the traumas of racism.
In Erva’s own words:
As a woman of African descent, I have a growing awareness of how the 400 years of enslavement and oppression of my ancestors here in the United States of America still live in me as subtle messages influencing my thoughts and behaviors.
So…. having done lots of internal work over many, many, many, and many more continuing years it appears that I’ve been prompted to get out there and offer what I know and what I’ve experienced to a larger community of black folks.
I believe we all have the innate capacity to heal – from anything. Sometimes we just need a coach, trainer, guide – someone to cheer us on, offer suggestions and walk with us along the path (it can get pretty rocky!).
This is mind, body and spirit work at the deepest level. I will commit to you if you commit to yourself.
