Mary Standing Otter
All over the world people are awakening to the power and beauty of Earth based Ceremony and Celebration. We are remembering who we are.We are healing ourselves and our relationships with others and we are attempting to weave the world in new ways of connection and balanced interdependence. We are recreating true communities or Tribe.
“It is not enough to use facebook or twitter to try and build true connections. We need to relearn how to live together in local communities and use social media to for help, support, and connections between communities.”
Mary Standing Otter is a guide in this process through Ceremony, Healing Work, Workshops, and music.
She is a medicine woman and ceremonial alchemist in The Medicine Wheel Way of the Twisted Hairs, has walked this Path for over 25 years and has crossed through her Rite Of Passage as an Elder. Mary travels the world helping to create communities, spirit dances, ceremonies and workshops rooted in spiritual integrity and personal empowerment. She is also a Sacred Pipe Carrier and Purification Lodge Chief. As a Healer and Dreamer, Mary’s focus is on creating strong and sacred space for the healing and growth that happens in the teachings and ceremony she shares. Her work is designed to help each person learn to heal themselves and become centered, loving, responsible Beings who help rebuild community through the reclamation of ceremony and spiritual connection.
In the last few years I have been traveling: planting ‘spirit’ seeds, starting a school and nurturing communities and women’s circles. We are forming a global community through the connection of our similar experiences and visions for ourselves, our lives and our Grandmother planet.
I have met so many wonderful people both online and in person in the last few years. It keeps me hopeful and helps me continue to grow and face beautiful and terrifying changes in the best of ways. Thank you all for including me in your journeys in whatever way you have done so. It is always my honor to be part of the lives of other courageous souls.
As I write this, a woodpecker is tapping on my window. “Wake up” he says to all of us, “Wake up and remember who you are!”
Many Bright Blessings,
Mary Standing Otter

Michele DeVoe Lussky is a Creativity Coach, Breathwork Facilitator, Writer, and Editor who created Shamama because she saw people all around her who are stuck, discouraged or full of fear--people who are unable to tell their story, explore with child-like abandon, live their authentic life, or manifest their dreams. She helps people know, trust, and express themselves by sharing the unique tools that she has gleaned from 25 years of teaching college writing and leading creativity workshops--sessions she calls "journeying within". Michele holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree in English Language and Literature; taught college Writing and Literature for 16 years--most recently at GVSU where she also held an administrative position at the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center; and led several non-profit and educational programs. She has completed graduate-level coursework or professional development in: pedagogy, creative writing, trauma-informed counseling, publishing, art therapy, growth mindset, and inclusive/equitable practices. She employs non-traditional methods which encourage peak creative performance, including: shamanism, embodied creativity, mindfulness, archetypal symbolism, mandala-making, laughter yoga, yoga, breathwork, and meditation. Some of these were gleaned from life experiences, but many were from formal workshops and certification processes (e.g. She is a Certified Breathwork Facilitator with David Elliot). She also is a Certified Comprehensive Sexuality Educator, environmental advocate, and intuitive--which all inform her as a creativity coach. Michele gently and enthusiastically assists with every stage of the writing process and is passionate about helping others tap into their creativity, find their voice, unleash their power, and discover their calling. Through both conventional and unconventional methods (such as somatic awareness, breathwork meditation, drumming, doodling, and mandala-making), she can help you release old baggage and blocks--and embrace your pure creative force. Her work is steeped in self-compassion, kindness, intuition, positivity, and practicality. Learn more at:
