About Katie Weatherup

As a former engineer with nearly 20 years of experience working as a shamanic practitioner, my work draws on both the practical and the mystical, allowing me to help people find their way back to themselves while improving their real-world results in terms of health, money, and relationships.

At 24, I found myself stepping into my adult life with an engineering degree, unmanaged psychic gifts, and a painful lack of interpersonal skills.  I was overwhelmed, overstimulated, and exhausted a good deal of the time.  Yet, this led me to an amazing journey of self-discovery that continues to unfold to this day.  I now have three published books (including Practical Shamanism, A Guide for Walking in Both Worlds) and am thrilled that my full-time shamanic practice has allowed me to work with thousands of clients all over the world.  My social circle is rich and extensive to a degree I could never have imagined as a lonely teenager who got along better with her goats than with her fellow human beings.

My mechanical engineering background has helped me focus my healing work on the necessity of system integrity. The human spirit is a highly complex system, that can break down in complicated and subtle ways. Much of my shamanic work is oriented toward wholeness. I help people recover their power and magic as well as all the parts they’ve lost, forgotten, denied, and disowned.  I’ve done more than ten thousand shamanic journeys and am very comfortable working with the hard, scary stuff.

A lifelong learner, I’ve engaged in extensive metaphysical training, both within and outside the discipline of shamanism.  For example, I received my Reiki Master certification over 20 years ago and am certified to pass the Munay Ki initiations.  Some of the people I’ve studied with include Hank Wesselman, Alberto Villoldo, and Maria Yraceburu as well as various instructors from Michael Harner’s Foundation for Shamanic Studies.

I would be honored to support you in coming home to yourself and in living a really good life that just keeps getting better!
