About August Lageman, Ph.D.

Professional Lightworker & Shaman

20151014_144204-1On my website the three steps in the healing process are described (illumination, extraction, and soul retrieval). Most
people unfamiliar with energetic healing are skeptical which is perfectly fine. Also there is nothing to believe in. Just be open to you healing and be willing to let go of what is standing in your way. In the first step—the illumination you will be asked to release what no longer serves you. I will help you but you must do the releasing.

Deeply embedded in our culture is wanting a quick fix—- a miracle cure. The healing that I do has a miraculous dimension but it is a process. The second session gives both you and I the opportunity to assess progress and determine the next steps. Shamanistic healing is not a long term process. My clients take between 2 and 4 sessions. If you choose not to come back for the second session, there is a significant chance that old pattern and energetic attachments will reoccur. Do you want a quick fix or a healing that is deep and permanent?

After an initial session, I can do subsequent sessions remotely from anywhere in the world. I have clients in England, Spain, Germany and Alaska. Remote work is just as effective as in person work. I also work with owners and their pets. I clear out homes and office places. I work on a sliding scale which assures that everyone will get the healing they need and deserve.

When you come for your appointment, I use an office in my home. You are welcome to walk the Labyrinth which has at its center a Cherokee Indian medicine wheel. Bring water containers to stock up on spring water.

Congratulations on taking this important step in your healing!!!
