Shaman's Hearth Spiritual Community of Venus Rising
Welcome to Shaman's Hearth! We are a community of people who are committed to doing powerful inner work to release the past, live in the present moment, and co-create a new future. As we learn and grow, we release thoughts, patterns and emotions that no longer serve us. Our relationships shift and deepen. Our sense of connection with all that is increases. We discover and begin to live from a heart-centered place of soul purpose. We nurture the mystic within as we embrace Great Mystery.
Shaman's Hearth Spiritual Community of Venus Rising was founded by Deb Kotz (formerly Irestone) in 2010. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit, interfaith community. At Shaman's Hearth, you can participate in a variety of group classes and experiences, work one-on-one with Deb, or do both.
Shaman's Hearth was the first congregation of Venus Rising Association for Transformation. It is one of just a few select Venus Rising congregations who are approved to offer SHIP (the Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process), Venus Rising’s signature Shamanic Breathwork training and ordination series.
All classes at Shamans Hearth can be applied toward degree credit at Venus Rising University. In addition, NAADAC CEUs are available upon request.
The offerings at Shamans Hearth encourage community and support for those on a conscious journey of transformation. As we transform ourselves, we transform the collective. We are all related.
I began my career as a mechanical engineer in 1982. With the birth of my first child several years later, I began to explore Great Mystery through mainstream religious organizations, esoteric mystery schools and shamanic spiritual groups. What I learned was fascinating, and I began to share what I was learning with others. In 2004, I connected with Venus Rising and knew that I'd found my spiritual family. Each individual's deep, grounded, inner knowing was not only accepted, but celebrated. I became a Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator and began facilitating Shamanic Breathwork, Priestess Circles, SHIP, and more. It is a joy to work with the many different people who are attracted to this work.
In addition to my personal shamanic experience, I am also formally educated in the realm of psycho-spiritual work. This includes an MA in Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy from Adler Graduate School, an MA in Theology and Spirituality with an emphasis in Spiritual Direction from St. Catherine University, a DMin in Shamanic Psycho-Spiritual Studies from Venus Rising University.
Other credentials include: Shamanic Breathwork Master Facilitator and Trainer, Shamanic Priestess Process and Shamanic Magdalene Mysteries Facilitator, Usui Reiki and Shamanic Reiki Master Teacher, Master Hypnotherapist, and Ordained Shamanic Minister.
