Welcome to this place where I share my gifts. Gifts that I offer, and receive.
This site is about me, yet it is made for you. You have found your way here because we are interested in, intrigued by, and called to, the same things. Maybe one more than any other... yet, these things have created a bond between us.
Soul Purpose. Shamanism. Storytelling. Creativity. Healing. PTSD Support. Peace.
My intention is that you feel calm here. My hope is that you can feel peace with yourself here. My desire is to share that experience with you.
Together we heal and restore beauty.
The power of Shamana
shows you how to find
that you can go anywhere
with the power of your mind.
This thing we call Imagination
has been on the decline
because we think what happens there is “only in our mind”.
But the power to imagine
can take us near and far
to all the dreamlike places-
where our helpers are.
Go there, Come back.
Listen to what they say.
Bring back healing love notes
that inspire us to pray
for health, peace and balance
in ourselves and within our tribe.
When we balance ourselves, our spirit worlds speak
and all life on this planet thrives.

Exploring your Inner World
My inner child is an artist. My adult self is a shamanic practitioner and media producer. I was called to shamanize while still a young adult (the crazy story is here, scroll down) and once I got my footing I suddenly felt a connection to Nature that I had never acknowledged before. I started hearing stories in places around me, and in my head. In order to share my experience I learned how to make audio and video media. As I get older I see myself most as a storyteller. Our stories shared is our combined Power.
I had never heard of such a thing called "Shamanism" before one night long ago, but now I feel my connection to the living world of plants, animals, guides and guardians within and surrounding us all. I am grateful for this calling, and I am committed to assisting others learn to listen and remember how their living world speaks to them. I created a Shamanic Temple called The Institute for the Shamanic Arts in Tucson, Arizona in 1999, and incorporated Earth Web Media as an Animist Church in 2008.
I create media art that tells Nature stories, as I hear them. Click here to find out more. I offer shamanic circles, readings, sessions and trainings. Look here for details. Go to www.shamanworld.com to to find ways to shamanize with Quynn in a circle, and in the web. There you can also learn about ISA and EWM.
Healing Post Traumatic Stress
I am the daughter of a PTSD affected war veteran. My father was the only child of a war veteran KIA. This experience strongly formed my reality, and so it is included in my website of gifts to share. War-related Post Traumatic Stress is rampant in our culture, and it has burdened almost every generation for a very long time, maybe forever. Men (and some women) go to war, and then they come home. The citizen soldier always comes home.
My father died in 2004. To heal my relationship with him, and to heal the pain I felt within, I wrote a little book called "Accepting the Ashes- A Daughter's Look at PTSD". To date, "Accepting the Ashes" is used as a resource by the National Chaplain Center, VAs around the country and National Guard Family Readiness Units to help foster constructive communication and understanding for service members and their loved ones.
I was only able to heal my relationship with my father, and write this book, because of my shamanic practice. Much of my work as a shamanic practitioner is helping people tend to their Soul Trauma. Either trauma in their own lives, or inherited by ancestors and/or culture. Soul Healing, Medicine and Retrieval is the first step from pain and to beauty.
