About Nadia Doe

Nadia originally came into Shamanic work to resolve her lifelong depression, Borderline Personality Disorder and addiction.  She was deeply unhappy with life and stuck in an unhealthy place when the plants and ancestors began to call to her.  

 

As she began walking the Shamanic path, mentors and teachers appeared.  She had the great fortune to learn traditional Ayahuasca and Amazon Plant Medicine with a Shipibo Maestro as well as mentor with an Armenian Shaman.  Most of her work, however, was done in solitude as she unraveled her own childhood trauma of sexual abuse and learned to heal it through working with the plant spirits and ancestors who had called her forward.  To this day, she is still unraveling and integrating that trauma.

In 2019, Nadia was called to relocate to the Pacific Northwest to open the first branch of Sacred Heart Medicine Sanctuary.  Her and her husband, Eric, are currently in the process of growing Sacred Heart and plan to build a new facility near Battleground, Washington in the coming years.  

Today, Nadia is best known as a Medicine Woman or Shaman and her work takes many forms.  Sometimes she is a healer, seeing and addressing dis-ease in the physical or energetic body.  At other times, she is a portal, a bridge between worlds that allows people to reconnect with their true self, or the Divine.  She stewards many into the Medicine space, where she creates the ultimate safe and loving container for people to dive into themselves, to unfold and release what is holding them back.

Nadia will be transitioning out of private Ceremonies and into other roles in 2022.  She will be shifting her focus into leadership within the Organization, conducting other forms of Ceremony, Group Ceremony, Organizing Community events, Hands-On Healing and Shamanic Counseling.

It is important to note that while she has studied with several traditions that work with Shamanism,  Nadia's work does not follow one tradition, but pieces of many.  She believes that tradition means limitation and that nothing should be done the same way indefinitely.   Just as in life, we are constantly in a state of change and Shamanic Medicine Work is no different, it needs to change with the time and current need of our planet/collective.  What does not change however, is the respect and reverence for working with all forms of Medicine and with the plant spirits. 

Outside of Plant Medicine work, Nadia continues to offer laying of hands, Shamanic counseling and other Ceremony services.  She has been extensively trained in several energy healing modalities as well as in entity removal, land and space clearing, personality disorder unraveling and animal communication.  She really loves to work with veterans, law enforcement, couples seeking to balance the Masculine/Feminine energy in relationships and those with CPTSD.

Nadia's vision

 

Nadia's vision is much larger than this one Sacred Heart location.  She has her mind and heart set on reforesting land just outside of Vancouver.  She will be providing a community center style facility, as many churches do, where other healers and practitioners can gather and share their craft.  She also wants to educate those who are interested in traditional Plant Medicine work and share Shamanic teachings with the Community.   Nadia has learned a great deal from Elder Shamans of several backgrounds as well as teachings directly from the plants.  These teachings want to be shared and passed on as the world continues to change and evolve.  Without the previous way of tribal life and community-style living, these teachings are harder to find by the day.

 

With regard to the long term plan, Nadia is paving the way for five church locations total across the country, with the final location being completely funded by the other four.  The fifth location will include a medium term in-patient facility for those seeking to resolve severe mental illness and addiction recovery through the practice of Shamanism and Ceremony.   At this location, we will work with intensive Shamanic healing techniques, Ceremony, psychotropic and non-psychotropic Plant Medicine, and other holistic modalities to support the healing of our Country's most severe cases in a spiritual (non-clinical) setting.  Each facility will be staffed by highly skilled Facilitators, Shamans and  Medicine People, who can approach soul trauma from a Shamanic perspective.   

As a great man once said, "we gotta do much more than believe if we want to see the world change."   (Dave Matthews)

"I felt so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Nadia in a private ceremony. She is truly gifted. Nadia is extremely present, supportive, insightful, spiritual and empathic which helped me break through so many barriers. This was a life changing experience for me and I can't think of anyone else I would have wanted to walk through this experience with. She was with me all the way which helped me go places that I was once afraid to go. And now, going forward I feel like I have a life long mentor. Thank you Nadia!"
