Hi I am Chonteau,
I wear many hats but my main reason for being on the planet is to assist in the awakening and remembrance that we are all connected and the time to step into our brilliance is now. In my early 20’s I received a vision and was told by The Ancestors, that I was a teacher and healer of the old ways. This is when my modern day Shamanic training began.
I completed my formal education as a Social Worker, and I followed in the footsteps of my father by becoming a Naturalist. At 20, my father taught me how to do self hypnotism and I began to honed my skills as an Mindfulness Practitioner, Folk Healer and Herbalist.
For as long as I can remember I have been giving to others. As a child, I remember being a volunteer for Meals on Wheels, I served lunch to “at risk” children. The spirit of service was instilled in me at an early age. What was not instilled in me, was the spirit of self care. When tough times arrived, I did not know how to navigate my way through it. I did not know what it meant to take care of me.
Thirteen years ago when I suffered major personal losses, I was forced to evaluate my self care and spiritual practices, and something amazing happened, I put “spirituality into action” and soul self care became a way of life.
