THE PLACE WHERE ART AND HEALING MEET
To create is to love again
My name is Ross Lewallen. I am a long time artist and shamanic healer, a teacher, a father, grandfather and an elder living in Santa Fe, NM. I am bringing to the work table of no judgement the ability to help people create for themselves and an understanding of how creativity happens. I have a skill to connect with each person at the place of who you are, who you are becoming and that deep place within you where magic waits to spring forth with synchronicity, symbolism, creativity, fun, and play. I can guide you to those deep healing places that can help redefine who you are, let go of what serves you no more, and gently break old patterns/rules in your life that don't work for you any more. All this requires no art background, only a desire to unleash creativity in your life.
To paint is to love again.
Come join me and lets walk together making images from that place of the little child within.

Painting with young people at the "Table of no Judgement"
All this art stuff started real young - my Dad snapped this of me in my jamies with shoes on them getting started by holding the pencil just the right way. Chicago
Walk-a-bout with clients Brenda and Paul to the Pecos Ruins, New Mexico. First we worked in the yurt all together then one on one. After that we headed out to the Pecos Ruins to continue the work of the day with a walk-a-bout. We get so much shamanic healing work done on these whole day sessions. Check in with me to hear more about this as an option for healing work with youself or your group. Phone # 505-603-8605
A walk-a-bout with a client
I work with many of my clients in nature. This is a very special location in the Pecos Wilderness not far from the yurt. Here we learn how to power up the river, do journey work, talk story, expierence the spirits that reside here, and magic that awaits us. Yesterday we were visited by many butterflies and the sound of trout that had been released into this beautiful river. A day that we were blessed with powerful healing energy.
I have just returned from a two month journey to the Florida Keys, January and February. I took a short break from my healing practice to sail and live on my sailboat "Paradox", spend special rewarding time daily with my wife Hanne deeping our love, relationship and friendship, doing some good painting, meeting new and cool people, enjoying seafood for breakfast, lunch and dinner many days, the Atlantic and Gulf spectacular bodies of water, explore Key West, and have a good look at my inner and outer world, develop new seeds for my parctice, life in Santa Fe, and my walk in life. I flourish around the warm temps almost 75 every day and time on water and sea level. I feel rejuvinated and ready for the summer season here in Santa Fe and what it has in store for me. I have posted some photos and some of my paintings below for your viewing.
I am bringing the creative art process in while working with clients as a tool for upping their inner power, for making changes in their lives, physically, spiritually, emotionally, dealing with illness on different levels of healing, making changes in their relationships, careers, and where they live. No art experience is necessary. This spring I will be teaching a "Talking Stick" workshop here in Santa Fe, NM. I will send out information shortly as I formulate the workshop. Interested e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Hanne and I produced a beautiful Blog of our journey to Key West and back. Have a look.
Hanne's new talking stick I made for her. It worked very well at her Sound Healing Workshop

"LAY BACK ON THE BELLY OF THE BEAR"
A small group wokshop with Margaret, Patti, Laura, and Sandra from St. Louis,
September 9th 2011.
The title for this workshop revealed itself during some of the special journey work we did. For years I have really enjoyed doing this kind of powerful healing work with small circles. If you have a group interested email me or call and lets talk about how a "Belly of the Bear" workshop would look like for your circle.
PHONE SESSIONS WITH ROSS LEWALLEN
For years I have spent very important time with clients on the phone prior to in-between in person sessions. I have shared by phone valuable healing information to hundreds of clients over the years. Most of these phone consultations are in preparation for clients readying to journey to Santa Fe for in person shamanic sessions.
Now, I want to make phone sessions available to clients unable to journey here for whatever reasons or eventually coming for in person sessions and continued work in the future.

Jean and Pete - a first. My first client's support dog during a session. By the way many shamanic practitioners work with animals that have been traumatized, abused, or injured in an accident.
Clients can bring their well mannered pet friends to sessions.
