Phoenix the Elder

Phoenix has been committed to her own personal self-healing journey, karmic purifications and self-awareness disciplines for the past 35 years. Equally dedicated to the great care of those she works with. An experienced folk healer, wise counsel, dreamer, astral traveler, seer, remote viewer, oracle, dream medicine healer, astrologer, symbolist, mythologer, moon medicine and teacher of lunar moontime cycles, synchronicity-cycles, energy healer and more.

She walks the Seasons of Nature and literally like the ancients, lives with the cycles of the season and the lunar cycles which were called the River of Life, the old Mother Mysteries of the Urals and the Slavic hidden mysteries of woman and closest to the Village Folk Healer.

Phoenix’s ancestral lineage is Slavic, Carpathian (red) Rusyn and Lemko where she was the next in her family line to fall under the initiations of the Szeptucha (Polish) and Mol’farka (Ukraine). Her elders and ancestors were from the villages of Skrzyszów, Lubaczów and Rzeszów, a region connected to the indigenous Galician, Rusyn, Lemko, Hutsul and Boyko peoples.

1. HEALING – Phoenix works with those who wish to heal and she has come to understand through her journey that “We cannot heal anything we are not aware of” and thus the journey of self-healing and self-awareness becomes the depth required to know the self. Her medicines are releasing and letting go in real terms, emotional, physical, mental and soul work, through practices.

2. EMPATH & EMOTIONAL HEALING – Working with the emotional body, the empaths pain, and emotional pain has been a dedication in Phoenix’s work. For over thirty years she has mastered the complexities in her work when one heals without medications. She helps clients and other healers navigate the ability to structure emotional chaos within the practices to attain the depth of releases and detoxes in a safe and grounded manner.

She helps by learning to addressing our core self sabotage, self hate, emotional honesty fears or anger. Phoenix will usually have a dreams revealing a root issue so it can be addressed. Emotional fears present in the self currently, one’s inner child from on’es past, and for some, past life karma can be worked with and slowly move through releases and emotional detoxes. The healing journey of the emotional body is a slow and long process because the emotional body is directly connected to the complexities of our souls.

3. DREAMING – A master dreamer who teaches her own ancient dream work, based on learning the foundation of root symbolism to train the mental body to use symbolism of one’s own choices that slowly transfer into being used in dreams. This is so the soul can tell its own story to the mental body dreamer. When we wake up, we remember what the mental body dreamer shared and then we can work with it, applying it to our struggles and desires. Dreams are infinite layers and levels of the self and working with Phoenix, one gains a clearer understanding the language of dreams, dreaming and dreamtime.

4. DIVINATION – Professional reader of divination: Reading of Cards, Chinese Wisdom Cards, Astrology, Stones and Palm Readings with over 40 years experience in counselling others to understand the cycles they are in, how long they will last and what opportunities there are to heal, change and grow from personal struggles or experiences. 

5. CREATIVE MOON – Learning to live intentionally, is what the Moon and Lunar Cycles are all about. Honoring your dreams at night and learning how this origin of our ancient communications reflects our personal life, our soul and our creativity, is the focus to value these parts of our self. Creative Ritual is an important part of growing and expanding past our fears and Phoenix helps others learn to bridge the mundane with the creative to heal.

6. SHADOWS – Works with sensitive people who experience fears or pain from the unseen and the unknown with grounding practices. Exorcist, Dream Exorcist and Land Exorcisms. Remove, extract or bind the problems of darkness, astral demons, shadows, demon animism and dark creatures etc.

Phoenix works within a structure of Six Months (once a month sessions) in order to best support the serious Seeker and or the Client who seeks Knowledge or the Person who needs to Heal.

Folk Healing is a “living” healing process, in the birth, transition, death and rebirth medicines for integrated changes so healing can occur. She works with water and fire medicines, the lunar cycles and dreams to apply to the mundane life and its struggles.

Holistic Healing, Folk Healing, Shamanic Healing, Eastern Healing or any type of Self-Healing must be a learn by practicing it as a lifestyle with total dedication and effort put forth by you. Guidance is there for those who truly want to be healthy, and there can be real changes that occur, but change and its detoxes can also be painful. Our personal life and our journey spiritually must include dealing with the painful root issues of the emotional body, the inner child, personal fears, and the soul body if we truly wish to change.

Her work does not separate the two lives we live: The Waking Dream and the Night Dreaming. She teaches and heals through the embodiment of learning to navigate the self and building a holy altar to that. To learn to heal the self and become aware of what arises that is unconscious in the self to release. Part of the work you do together may also include various folk healing work she does in the dreaming as well (with permission of course) to see what karmic roots might be there making you suffer.

Phoenix opens the doors of awareness during the six months and you are given that in order to make the right steps forward in healing of your issue(s) from there forth. She reveals the hidden, the hidden soul issues, hidden karma, and hidden diseases or the path that will best be focused upon for clarity, groundedness and most of all common sense in this crazy new age era.

Phoenix has a commitment to honor sobriety with everyone she works with. This as an essential part of the foundation of self-healing and spiritual purification so one can truly heal. If one has been sober for eight years or more she will work with you. For those who participate in any weekly or monthly pot, alcohol, plants or plant medicines, peyote, drugs, ayahuasca, mushrooms or any world wide perception altering substances of any kind – she no longer works with those who have these addictions.

Please write for session and six-month prices, serious inquires only:


Client Cheryl
I have been on a healing path for over 25 years, having worked a good part of those 20 years in a metaphysical store. I have heard a lot of big claims and would be enthusiastic until the healing, then, more often than not, I was left unimpressed or my issues not resolved. Then I met Phoenix, she is a true healer, going into my shadow and helping me heal an old wound, that was very scary and daunting, she showed me fearlessness in her work that showed results.

She helped me heal my alcohol addiction and ultimately, we heal ourselves and Phoenix encourages that, so her pressure on me encouraged me to make a change, she never gave up. There is no ego in her work only truth, as she share her courage and helps you face, heal and then release with the difficult “letting go” medicines that she’s mastered and works with. Its what helps keeps you from realizing the love, which you are and her ceremonies help you focus on these letting go aspects as they arise  in a cyclical process, what she calls lunar cycles through the season which includes the healing of our emotional body and then our soul.

I highly recommend Phoenix for anyone serious about their healing journey, their intentional growth and spiritual growth.

Apprentice SB
The basics are the foundation of starting to live with a lunar awareness for me, which Phoenix has totally opened this very ancient work and discipline with me. This is being aware of the energy of self awareness with the structure of the month, through intention and learning how each lunar cycle effects us personally – through keeping track of the symbolism, signs and syncronicities that pops up during the moon cycle and the dreams we have.

Dreams are one big part of her work and because I am a natural dreamer (as she calls it), it was something I yearned to learn from a master dreamer. That was a huge part of my first couple years and I had to work through undoing many of my assumptions about symbolism. Then came the more complex “mirror” and self reflective work work within that. How to find yourself and the parts of yourself you are blind to through the things that are happening around you or that you are attracting or the way you are feeling. This process is the ancient way of lunar enlightenment, and is about learning to look at yourself through the “mirrors” that surround you.

This much more difficult than it sounds and takes a lot of humility, willingness to heal, disciplines, and willingness to hold your issues close and not to project onto those who mirror them, point them out ( kindly or unkindly), touch them or bring them to the surface. It can be very hard but it is very worthwhile and is a learning process and an unlearning process.

Phoenix work is tailored to each person individually and what your life is like. Most likely she will have you commit to a healthy activity like yoga, meditation, martial arts, dance etc ( what ever you like) because it helps keep you grounded and disciplined which is in your benefit as the practiced discipline comes in handy later on in the apprenticeship.

Phoenix is like a surgeon in her preciseness and she doesn’t say things unnecessarily. So it’s best (and makes your time worthwhile) to learn to listen. And your issues will come up around her because she is, by her very nature, a soul healer and that’s what happens in her presence and under her tutelage. You will have to figure out how “not” to project that onto her because when we touch a trigger to heal, we project and usually its not nice for the self or the other.

Many of her apprentices over the last three decades could not handle any of this and cannot truly slay their own ego (which, when done properly, feels truly shitty until you get used to it) when it comes to spiritual learning. I think its especially hard for people who have read lots of books about spirituality ( and feel knowledgeable )…

Which they are, but as you know knowledge is not the same as experience or are used to being in more “social” spiritual groups which is usually fun and strives to be conflict free. An apprenticeship in learning the art of self healing work is not always pretty and full of conflict, tears, rage, uncertainty, inner triumph, true epiphanies, healing and priceless lessons.

So, I have found it worth my apprenticeship for 10 years. Her bar is so higher that most  cannot make this level of self dedication except for an apprentice.

    I love this! Especially your teaching about holding attention between walking and dreaming. I will read and read again about the practices of water, fire and I feel resonance with your writing about an intimacy/relationship with the elements. Also, the insects and birds…

      Also, I remember when I lived in the city at the highest elevation of this country I’d love the snow arriving —during storms it called me outside. I’d go walking for miles as it snowed. There is a magic to winter a deep spirit. Thank you 🙏
