John Paul has been a practicing Shaman since 1987.
In addition to being a ceremony man and site whisperer, I am also a theatre and film director.
I have lived, worked, and created ceremonies in the US, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Bali, Peru, Costa Rica, South Africa and Australia.
I was trained in traditional Native American Shamanism by a range of Medicine men and women and Grandmothers. At my formal initiation ceremony, I was welcomed into the spiritual council of the 44 grandmothers. I work closely with these spirits as my personal guides and councillors. I also facilitate their council for others. This spirit guide council is instrumental in my work as a sacred site whisperer.
I'm a sacred New Moon pipe carrier and teacher of the Medicine Wheel.
In a parallel reality I'm also the CEO and Chief Alchemist of the Auspicious Arts Incubator where I help artists create sustainable arts businesses.
