Your guide on the journey
Welcome! my name is Frédéric Cherri,
therapist, teacher, ceremonialist, coach, and ... sometimes shaman
People sometimes call me a shaman. Although I’m comfortable with what the title means and although I perform some of the tasks covered in that definition, this title is mostly ‘given’ by others based on the results the person acquires in their community. A shaman never calls himself or herself a shaman. I’m mostly, and most humbly, a therapist of 30yrs clinical practice and tutoring in the field of trauma, immune disorders and perinatal issues. I’m also an entrepreneur, a retreat leader, a program teacher, a ceremonialist, a shamanic practitioner, an entheogen integration specialist and a personal coach. Years of study and practice on the path of workshop facilitation, field research and clinical & therapeutic work have led me to believe we can heal anything.
I'm aware of being a bit of an odd ball in the realm of ancestral medicines as I've trained in a variety of ancestral medicines and with a variety of different traditions. A medicine man or woman usually is a one-medicine specialist, and trains in one sole tradition. I, on the other hand have answered the call from many of these remarkable medicines and travelled wide and far to different jungles and mountains to work and study with varied first-people communities of this planet. I only work with medicines who have clearly called me. I believe there is a need for people like me to help bridge and disseminate to a western audience the extraordinary wisdom of the first nations who share these medicines.
Shamanic work and one of it’s mysterious and exciting aspects, the realm of plant or earth medicine, brings many answers to the unresolved issues of modern medicine or psychology.
