Maria Anderson - 1:1 Yoga, Shamanic Healing, Reiki & Reiki Drum Healing Technique 
Shamanic Healing (Bio Energetic Healing)

Is it time to reconnect to your authentic self?
To let go of the beliefs that hold you back, to move on

from the old story and start creating the life you wish to live?

A Shamanic healing helps us to release and let go of the long-held beliefs formed throughout our lives. 

We all experience trauma to some degree, and this gets stored

in our bodies. Every reaction, every emotion is a form of energy,

and that energy gets locked in our muscles and tissue.


As children we learn that we must adjust who we are in order

to fit into society. When we are not allowed to express ourselves,

we suppress our emotions, and we start to disconnect from ourselves, creating habits and behaviours not true to who we are. We hold on to fear, scarcity, shame, guilt, loneliness, sadness and there’s a feeling that something is missing.


With this heavy energy clogging up the energy system, the chakras, our body gets tired, the dis-ease of energy flow can lead to disease, depression, anxiety and autoimmune disorders. 


A Shamanic healing removes this heavy energy from the body.


But if unsolved trauma can store itself in our muscles, tissue, organs, cells and the rest of the physical body, then so can joy, gratitude, abundance, love and peace. 


This energy medicine is the path of beauty.

It is living authentically, listening to our bodies and trusting our emotions, it is listening to our instincts and following their guidance.

This is deep personal healing. Just one session can bring about unimaginable shifts.

Shamanic healing can help you move through periods when you have lost sight of who you are, when you have feelings of disempowerment and seem unable to move forward.


Utilising the processes of illumination, extraction, soul retrieval and transition rites. The role of the shaman is to journey into the world of our unconscious to retrieve our wholeness.

Here the shaman recovers the missing pieces, those things that we put away in order to fit in with the expectations of our family, culture or society. As we gracefully reinstall each missing piece into its rightful place, magic happens! We start to discover our own true self.

It is a fresh start, a new way of living, a path without limiting beliefs.

We begin to bring forth our gifts and talents so that we can step into our becoming and as we do, we create and hold a new map for ourselves that shapes our destiny.

We understand that we can change our world by changing ourselves, and we can re-negotiate the contracts we have made that keep us stuck in toxic beliefs, illnesses, painful relationships or work that doesn't inspire us.

This is available to all, young and old. It is never too early and never to late to reclaim yourself!

A session usually lasts between 1.5 to 2 hours. The number of sessions will depend on each persons healing needs.

1 - 1 Yoga practice


A perfect way to get to know your body and what works for you. Every-body is unique and therefore no yoga pose will look the same.


I love the quote from Bernie Clark "We use the yoga pose to get into the body, not the body to get into the pose.


Together we will look at your unique anatomy and work out a practice that works best for you.

The Reiki healing technique is based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the client by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the clients body and restore physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Reiki is a system of energy healing originating from Japan. The word Reiki itself translates to 'Universal Life Energy' and is based on the understanding that life energy (Chi in Chinese medicine or Prana in Yoga) flows through all living things.
When this energy becomes disrupted or blocked, stress and dis-ease in the body may follow.
Reiki Drum Technique
Combining Reiki and Drumming creates the Reiki Drum Technique, a method of utilising the drum to introduce Reiki energy into a person's energy field to bring about deep relaxation thereby releasing deep seated tensions and achieving homeostasis. The drum rhythm reminds the body of its optimal vibration. Research has indicated that even drumming for a short period of time can induce an "alpha state", those brainwaves associated with wellbeing and euphoria.

A Reiki treatment will normally last an hour.

The treatment is given fully clothed.

Maria is a fully qualified Reiki Master and Reiki Drum Practitioner.

The Rites of the Munay-Ki

Dates: 28 - 29th October and 25 - 26th November 2023

You will receive the nine rites of the Munay-Ki over four days. In receiving these rites you will experience a vibrational shift as you step into your true power.
The prophecies of the ancient Americas talk about a time of great transformation in the world, a time when it is necessary for a new type of human being to emerge - someone who embodies wisdom, love and power to combat the fear based states presiding on the Earth today, to become stewards of this planet and all that live upon it - the Homo-luminous.

Munay-Ki comes from a Quechuan word meaning Love.
Though this is not the kind of love that we are perhaps more familiar with – rather than being an emotion, the ‘Munay’ form of Love is pure energy. Munay is Unconditional Love.
The word ‘Ki’, though not Quechuan, represents the power of these rites to heal and help you achieve greater harmony. According to this tradition there are three power centres held in the body:
Yanchay - the power of Wisdom, which resides in the 6th chakra
Munay - the power of Love, which resides in the heart
Yan’kay - the power of Service, which resides in the belly
As these 9 rites of the Munay Ki are downloaded into your energy field, they bring with them an ability to help transform you. Aided by your personal healing work, this will allow you to come into alignment, what the Q’ero know as ‘ayni’, a living embodiment of these energetic qualities of Wisdom, Love and Service, that represent being in right relationship with all of creation.
These powerful initiations from the Inca tradition are transmitted from person to person.
These Codes may heal our wounds, change our DNA and energetic structure much like new seeds planted in fertile soil. Love and power working together releases us from our past-selves and brings forth who we can become, the best of what it means to be a human being. A sense of belonging, a sense of purpose and having the ability to make a difference whilst living in the right relationship.
Words credited to my great teachers Chris Waters and Sarah Gregg.
I first received these powerful rites from Sarah in 2021,  from Chris as part of the Medicine Wheel training in 2022/23 (and 23/24) and from the Q'ero Shamans in 2023. I will be running this course with my dear shamanic sister Jessie, who is part of Chris Medicine Wheel training team.
