Ioan Fazey - Dawn Song

I am a certified shamanic practitioner, with extensive training in the Embracing Shamanism tradition. I have a graduate certificate in counselling skills, certificates in Usui Rei-ki, and training in an approach to  body work called Body Harmony. I have been practicing shamanic healing in various forms for over 10 years, and other healing arts for over 20 years.

I am also a Professor in the Department of Environment at the University of York, UK where I teach students how to support societal change and transformation. I have 20 years of experience in experiential forms of teaching focused on understanding change, the challenges facing people and the planet, and the wonders of the natural world. My work increasingly focuses on how transformations 'on the inside' support transformations 'on the outside'.

I began learning different healing practices to work with my own complex health issues, to reconnect with nature and to help me find meaning and purpose. As such, I am well placed to appreciate some of the frustrations and challenges you may be facing.  

My shamanic name is Dawn Song.
