sage blessing
“The most sacred place dwells within our heart, where dreams are born and secrets sleep, a mystical refuge of darkness and light, fear and conquest, adventure and discovery, challenge and
transformation. Our heart speaks for our soul every moment while we are alive. Listen… as the whispering beat repeats: be…gin, be…gin, be…gin. It’s really that simple. Just begin… again.”
~ Royce Addington

♥ Reiki & Sound Healing 3 Session Package

3-Session Prepaid Package: Commit to receiving 3 sessions (bi-weekly over a two month period)

A reiki practitioner is a conduit that channels the flow of life force energy through their hands to you. Reiki is believed to be the unseen, intelligent, living vital life force that animates all life. Reiki is sent to align with your physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being. When you receive reiki, you may experience heat, coolness, vibration, tingling, light pressure, a slight pulling sensation, or nothing at all. Reiki involves hands on and hands-off techniques such as lightly placing hands in various locations on your body, sweeping your body of unneeded energy or using vocal tones to break up energy blocks. During soundhealing, calibrated Acutonic tuning forks are applied to your body to access your body’s energy systems as well as bring you to a transcendent state of calm.

Each 75-90 minute session blends yogic wisdom, psychology, and transformational bodywork to tap into your innate intelligence and ability to heal yourself. Supportive touch is partnered with dialogue to invite you to notice your body/mind/spirit. This is a non-diagnostic approach to therapy that uses your body as an anchor to experience what is happening in the present moment and bring awareness to how that may connect with your life. Flexibility, strength, fitness or involvement in a physical yoga practice is absolutely unnecessary.

Intuitive Healing and Mentorship  

Artemisia's session was a profoundly warm event. Getting to be one on one with an amazing healing woman was such a good experience. Her energy immediately soothed and warmed my heart and brought me into a safe space. Through her visions, she revealed myself to me. There are certain images and messages that the heart is trying to send and Artemisia listens. Skeptics beware, she will turn you upside down. The images and dialogue shared with Artemisia has been continually helping me heal and figure out my life path since our first session. A beautiful experience, from a wise healing lady. I highly recommend this. It's hard to describe without experiencing it for yourself.

Chelsea Anan    Sunny Brea, CA   
Intuitive Healing and Mentorship  

Artemisia is one of those beings who is very adept at surrendering and allowing these wise energies to take shape and meaning though her with ease. Artemisia effortlessly feels through the silky stands of colors, words, images, and experiences and gently combs them into form. She honors them and then begins giving them a true expression.

She is non-judgmental and without expectation and that grants her access to a fuller pallet of what is in the moment with us. Artemisia holds all of what is available to her in equal respect and lets it shine and share.

As she reads, she weaves and mends, pets and strokes, loves and cares for the gathering energies. She is re-patterning the person she is reading for. It is healing to be seen without judgment, to have your tender energy witnessed and handled with care and shared back with you. She is watering the thirsty plant of her client’s deep heart. I see them perk up, sit straighter, open their hearts more, align with their greater truth, fall more in love with themselves.

After a session with Artemisia you can walk away feeling like you are a big Yes! Yes! I am beautiful. Yes! I am contributing to the world. Yes! It is good to be me. Yes! It is good to shine. Isn’t that what the world needs more of? Each of us being in the fuller Yes! of who we are?

Artemisia’s class has been a wonder for me and brought me back to my languishing yoga practice with enthusiasm and dedication. Artemisia brings a beautiful and uniquely effective mix of the the physical, mental, emotional, musical, and spiritual to her teaching and guidance.

Michael Furniss   
Intuitive Healing and Mentorship  

I feel I am in direct communication with my soul everyday, however never have I had the experience of hearing its voice so clearly and with such clarity as I did with you. It has brought such certainty and powerful grounding to my life where once my guide had been trust and faith... now I move forward with confidence and strength feeling the conviction of my path in this world. The certainty that this is what I came to this world to do.

And now, in the beautiful way that it does, the Universe has already begun to unfold with the exact right people, opportunities and syncronicities necessary to fulfill this purpose. Thank you Artemisia for being a vessel of truth and a light in the darkness. Wisdom is such a powerful tool, and you wield it with such Grace and humility!

Oliver Scott-Tomlin, The High Path - Owner    Mancos, CO    Website

Artemisia teaches with an open heart and a big smile. While her practice is rooted in alignment and spirituality I love that she invites her students to play in yoga class. Artemisia’s classes challenge and inspire me to love myself deeply.

Vanessa Vasquez   
Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy  

Artemisia's strong, nurturing presence facilitated powerful healing experiences for me in the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy sessions we shared. She perfectly balances intuitive and technical knowledge of yoga, while holding space for my own inner process to take place. Very compassionate, joyful, and authentic, highly recommended.

Rebecca Harris    Arcata, CA   
Intuitive Healing and Mentorship  

My heart opening session with Artemisia was like looking into a mirror, stretching forward and backward into eternity. Hearing her guide me through my own heart was a journey through multiple worlds and times, revealing to me a version of myself I'd forgotten but so desperately wanted to know. Artemisia was able to gently remind me of my true essence and to open my eyes to aspects of myself I was ignoring but that held incredible strength. She listened with grace and compassion to what I shared then, in-turn, reflected powerful insights and changes of perspective. I walked away with a feeling of expansion and a renewed sense of purpose. Her words and encouragement have extended far beyond our 90 minutes together.

Robin Baker    Arcata, CA   
Yoga  

I am so pleased with Artemisia's class! It is up there on my very favorite things that I have ever done. It was perfect. Impeccable. The rest of my evening after went really well too. Something about me was different in a really good way in my class at the dojo. I know its just a small step on a very long path,but I am glad I took it and very grateful Artemisia was there to show the way. She is an excellent teacher.

Tom Jacobson, Northcoast Aikido Instructor    Arcata, CA   
Ashley Anderson  

Artemisia's presence, love and support is truly a gift that she brings to each session. My relationship with myself has changed in the time I've worked with her; I am better resourced to tap into my own power and intuition while understanding my needs. I've worked with many different counselors and therapists, what she brings that is so special is a gentle, powerful and loving way of holding space and is able to ask high quality questions. Artemisia has the ability to understand complex feelings and intuitively create a compelling session with a lasting impact.

Ashley Anderson   
Intuitive Healing and Mentorship  

It was a cloudy morning as I strolled in to meet Artemisia for my heart opening session. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but as is usually the case when I see Artemisia, I had no problem being confused, lost, and vulnerable; and as she hinted to ahead of time, she prefers her clients that way.

I was greeted with a warm, genuine smile, and was asked to make myself comfortable as she quickly prepared some tea. She then sat before me, and began. I said almost nothing the entire session, but looked on with tears in my eyes as she described what she saw within me.

I cant imagine what I experienced during that hour and a half to be anything like what another may experience, so without going into details might be able to summarize my experience by saying: if there were other times in my life where I felt so understood, so accepted, so 'seen' for what I know is in me, I cannot, at the time of this writing, recall, and there seems to be something fulfilling to having been acknowledged in such a way.

We finished my session with me lying down; tears welling with my emotions laid bare. Artemisia patted my heart as she asked me what would help me to find comfort and nourishment. I told her a salmon dinner and yoga in the sun, then we said goodbye, I walked out to my bike, and rode off to buy some salmon as the last clouds drifted south, leaving a beautiful blue sky and a bright, sun-shiny day.

I ♥ Artemisia Shine's Hot Stone Yoga class. She really sets the stage for a serene yet powerful practice. You can tell it is important to her that EVERYONE in the room gets the most delicious experience possible. The poetic flow, candles, aromatherapy, live sound, hot stones, and lavender head massage are NOT to be missed!

Sarah Schuette, Owner of Dirty Business Soil Consulting & Analysis    Website   
Intuitive Healing and Mentorship  

Artemisia has helped me grow and been such an excellent example to follow. Working with her these past 6 months has changed how I feel about myself, it has shifted my perspective on what's "wrong" with me to how I can use my pain as a gift, and all the while cultivate unconditionally loving patience with myself. That has translated into more honest and fulfilling relationships with other people, and is helping me learn how I can use this healing to be a healer myself. Thanks for all the love!!

Michelle Wurlitzer    Website

That was the most exciting hour and a half of my life! Thank you for guiding me to my heart. It feels so amazing!! Your gift is undeniable and I wish everyone I love could be blessed by it. Thank you for opening yourself to be a vessel for the cosmic communication that is all around us and inside us. xoxoxo

Hattie Miller    Mancos, CO   
Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy  

This session was bountiful in meaning, love & infinite experience. I received a clear pathway to the expansion of the Universe and the wholeness of all that is. What really worked was the energy - the space that Artemisia creates and radiates around her. My body-mind + soul felt at ease and receptive to this experience. The love and healing Artemisia shares with others - in turn - is radiated + expanded far beyond our comprehension.

Edith Rosen    Arcata, CA

I felt as if I was being cradled in the womb in candlelite hot stone yoga. It was the best experience I've had in a yoga studio.

Marlena Kellogg    Arcata, CA   
Yoga  

I first found Artemisia's wonderful classes via Yoga for a Cause at Om Shala Yoga in Arcata. I was drawn in by the cause, which is Artemisia leading a class to raise money for a local charity. I was really pleasantly surprised by her personal attention to each student, and how she came by and gently moved us into the best positions.

There is something really special about a yoga teacher that cares, and I can really feel the love when she places warm eye pillows on our faces (yay! so nice!), or helps guide our movements with reassuring words.

Possibly the best part of her classes are these great philosophical jewelz she weaves in, for example, "As you are sweating and struggling remember - you are love having a human experience." And bam, I'd be reunited with my intentions and saved from losing pure focus on love.

I love the way she teaches and lives, blessings!

Samyol Wyldcat    Humboldt, CA    Website

Healing for me is about re-establishing a relationship with any part that is at dis-ease. Artemisia’s heart readings are one of the most affective practices I am utilizing to evoke this personal relationship. The very words spoken in our sessions are now coming to life in this new series. She has helped me literally take my heart and throw it onto a canvas. Through this work, I am seeing my heart for what it truly is, divine. This process is a personal one, but I have great hopes of it inspiring others to explore and connect with their own heat space. I am grateful to have such a powerful healer by my side.

Jessica Albee, Artist    Arcata, CA    Website   
Intuitive Healing and Mentorship  

The BEST thing about working with artemisia is going on a journey beyond the delusion of thoughts. Whats there? Home, oneness, truth. Artemisia sees beyond our form, and holds up a mirror so that you/we may get a glimpse of the path of each of our three parts (body/mind/spirit). In this recognition we may move forward, reuniting our three parts so we may realize our infinite potential as beings beyond this form. Being able to become a witness of our inner truth (or even a few pieces of our truth) will empower you to move forward in life realigned on the path of truth and one love. It is all within you already. Don't be scared to look in the mirror of your divine you. Let Artemisia be your mirror. You may come to love what you see. So will we all.

David Stickler    Mancos, CO

Artemisia is my "fav yoga goddess." She is the shinest teacher ever! Her yoga class is world class and life changing; I always feel so alive and filled with light after her class. You would be so lucky to get a spot in one of her classes:-)

Jay Hemenway   
Yoga  

Artemisia's astounding generosity of spirit inspires a truly unique practice. Her boundless energy and warmth lift me from my own busy mind, my routines and earthly concerns every time. Her class is truly a celebration of our magnificent selves: a dance that combines physical and mental discipline with play, deep soul-exploration and laughter.

Sanskrit/English Poses

Sanskrit/English Poses

“The vibrational purity and resonating power of Sanskrit is above all an opera on a grand cosmic scale that you can sing with your whole heart and being.”  ~Vyass Houston

All of life resonates at a specific vibration.  Sanskrit is considered to be one of the oldest languages on earth, comprised of sacred sounds of rhythm, melody and harmony. The Sanskrit names for the physical asanas, or yoga poses, were crafted to reflect the essential nature of that which they describe. The seed sounds, or bijas, that make up each Sanskrit title for a particular yoga pose, carry a unique and intentional frequency. Perfect pronunciation of these bijas resonate with the essential vibration of the universe itself. To call an asana aloud in Sanskrit while aligning yourself in that particular posture is a tangible way to deeply explore the energy of that pose while unifying sound and physical sensation.

I invite us all to welcome more Sanskrit into our lives!  🙂

I offer below a work in progress – I am compiling a list of yoga poses with their corresponding English names.
♥ I will update this as time allows. ♥
