Shamanism combines spirituality, healing

By Clare Knight

When Jokasha Klest first experienced Shamanic Imagery work 16 years ago, she was so impressed with the speed of the results that she decided to dedicate her psychotherapy practice to sharing that work with her clients.

Klest has been practicing psychotherapy since she graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the 1970s. The first five years were spent as director of Horizon House, a halfway house for women in Milwaukee. After that she branched into private practice, moved to Sheboygan and now co-owns Lighthouse Therapy Services with psychotherapist Dan Huber.

New Zealand psychologist David Grove developed the process that Klest now practices from Maori shamanism. A form of shamanism adapted to western psychotherapy, it has become so popular that Grove had to create a training center for practitioners, in the United States, to accommodate the demand.

“All of shamanism, which shows its face in every culture in one form or another, is truly, simply a mixture of spirituality and healing and in fact, I think, all true healing is a mixture of those two things,”? Klest said.
