Your guide on the journey, Frédéric Cherri
By nature, I'm not very fond of labels or titles however, if I had to describe my path I would say that I’m mostly a practitioner of the shamanic arts, a therapist of 30yrs clinical practice and tutoring in the field of cranial osteopathy, specialised in trauma, immune disorders and perinatal issues. I've also trained extensively for the last 25 yrs in the shamanic arts and dedicated a lot of my time to live and study with indigenous communities in many parts of the world.
I’m finally 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 also aware of being a bit of an 'oddball' in the realm of ancestral medicines as I've trained (and keep training) 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 have answered the specific calls from some 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 believe there is a need for people like me to help bridge, protect 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. I have dedicated my life to supporting others’ journey, growth and transformation and am delighted to answer any questions via Zoom or Whatsapp chat. Schedule a free call here.
