If you are like many people, you may be struggling to find a sense of purpose in your life. Or perhaps you are seeking to deepen your relationship with yourself, with others, and with the bigger picture of Life. Something may just seem "off" or perhaps missing. I hear you. And I am really excited to become part of your life! Thank you for taking a few minutes to learn more...

Do any of these fit what you are looking for?
  • Greater sense of spiritual connection
  • More satisfaction in relationships
  • A better sense of integration to Life
  • Feeling more in the flow of Life
  • A sense of moving toward my purpose, my destiny
  • Living more authentically

These are the kinds of issues and questions that I hear from people every day, so you are not alone. There are thousands of people seeking ways to live their lives authentically and in alignment with their values and sense of purpose.

Frankly, what I do is help people just like you to move toward a deeper understanding about how that all works, why you may feel unfulfilled, how to find the essence of who you are, and how to bring that authentic self into everyday life. The courses and workshops I teach are primarily related to how you can apply the shamanic worldview to everyday, contemporary life. I have worked with hundreds of people over the years, in groups and individually.

WHO IS THIS GUY?

My name is Gerry Starnes. I am an award-winning and best-selling author, teacher, and shamanic practitioner. I have been presenting classes and workshops about shamanism and shamanic practice since 2000, based on decades of study under a variety of teachers.

In 2011, I wrote the award-winning book  Spirit Paths: The Quest for Authenticity, which grew out of the foundations of the Spirit Paths program that I have been presenting since 2008. It is available in many editions worldwide, and has been called "life changing" by participants and readers.

In 2016, I began to focus on developing online content for the program and also expanded into other online courses and workshops. That led to the creation of the  Shamanic Passages Institute, the container for all the programs I am creating to help people learn more about themselves and how they can lead more fulfilling lives.

Along the way, I have written seven books, both non-fiction and fiction, and have become a best-selling author on Amazon of  The Shamanic Journey: A Beginners Guide to Journeying and Power Animals: The Role of Spirit Guides. I have also created three CDs for supporting meditation and journeying.

So, why am I here?  Because it is time to go deeper into my mission to bring this work to more people. In order to do that, I want to expand the creative team and build the supportive community needed. This is where and how you can come in. Become part of my Patreon community!

As a community member, you will receive:
  • exclusive content, messages, inspiration
  • discounts on classes and workshops
  • advance notice about new projects, 
  • input on developing new classes and workshops, and 
  • behind-the-scenes access.

I'm also exploring live-streaming possibilities that will only be available to patrons. Let me know what you would like more of and let's see what we can do together!

There is so much more that I would like to share with you, and I will. I invite you to spend some time here and on my other websites to get to know me and my work, and consider whether or not you want to dive into this expanding global community. Thank you!
