Ride the razor’s edge between Spirituality and Modern Science: bringing wisdom teachings of the ancient Americas into the 21st century!
Austin Shamanic Center is a safe circle for growth and expansion based on the principles of animism and shamanic healing.
We provide professional training, self-development workshops and personal one-on-one healing. All are designed to empower you and connect you with the Divine though Nature.
We teach a unique blend of Andean mysticism, or shamanism, based largely on the teachings of the Q’ero Indians of Peru, woven through with modern wisdom from physics, neuroscience and psychology. We integrate these all into a form of shamanism for the 21st century, that meets the needs and minds of the Western student. Our Mesa Carrier program is the embodiment of these teachings. Full Mesa Carriers, graduates of this program, gather monthly as a tribe, and gather quarterly with their friends and families for drum circle and despacho ceremonies.
Classes are held in a facility on a sacred piece of land in Hays county. It’s all about learning how to consciously dream your world into being with the support of the Creative Force. It’s our practices and ways of living that bring out the magic in our every day lives. Join us!

I owned a yoga studio for 11 years, starting in the 90’s, before there were certification programs, and studied Andean Shamanism with Alberto Villoldo for 10 years before starting my own programs in Austin. We have been in Austin as ASC since 2014.
Reviews and Testimonials – What clients say about Christina’s work
“Christina brings many gifts to so many, through teaching and shamanic healing work. She is insightful, intelligent, and wise; a master teacher and shamanic healing practitioner of the highest caliber, filled to the brim with passion, compassion, wit, wisdom and integrity. I was a student of hers and I so appreciated her vast experience in the shamanic healing arts as well as her strong foundation in physics and neuroscience. I have profound gratitude for all that I learned from Christina, and the hours and hours spent in the classes that changed my life. I also have had a very powerful healing session with Christina. Whoa…I never felt so “seen.” I am still reaping the benefits of that session, that took place over 2 years ago, which continue to grow in me, and that I am able to share with others in my own healing practice.
Christina magically and deftly weaves ancient healing traditions and modern science, creating a potent blend of really, really good medicine!” – Barbara Swift, RN
“Just when I thought that my life and spiritual path couldn’t be more deep and profound, then it crossed with Christina’s path. Mixing spiritualism with science, Christina’s Shamanism and teachings are what is needed for our modern times. Classically trained in the Q’ero traditions, she intertwines ancient fundamentals with contemporary utilities creating an amazing heritage of Medicine Wheel knowledge. As a river will join other waterways to form stronger rivers, Christina is adding to my body of spirituality through her Shamanic teachings.” – Randy Anderson, Austin, Texas
“Christina is an intelligent, knowledgeable, wise, and truly gifted teacher and shaman. I found her classes deeply inspiring and very healing. As a medicine person, I seek teaching from those who truly walk the path of medicine. She truly does. She is committed to the healing path with all of herself, and exemplifies the way of the shaman. As a teacher, she is also lots of fun, and makes the lessons come alive with her enthusiasm and wonderful sense of humor. She is a delight in so many ways. I am so grateful to have been her student.” – Julie Eaglesister Fletcher
“It is a pleasure to endorse Christina Allen! I am kind of an expert on trainings, since I have been to more trainings, workshops and ceremonies than I can count. In the 37 years I have been a therapist and 30 plus years as a Sundancer, it has been my privilege to have worked with several renowned teachers and some of the most knowledgeable healers and “medicine people” in the world. Christina is among the very best I have had the pleasure of learning from; and I learned a lot from her! Her teaching style and personal manner is engaging and inviting. Her knowledge is deep and her heart is wide-open. She has a great sense of humor and an eloquent way of explaining what can often be confusing subject matter. She makes accessible the otherwise mysterious. If you are looking for a skilled guide to the ways of the shaman, or perhaps looking for new tools and a higher understanding on how people grow and heal, how to truly engage and assist that process rather than hinder it or merely project your own notions…or just how to help yourself heal or move beyond troublesome patterns in your life… I don’t believe you could do any better than Christina Allen. Unless you are narcoleptic, you won’t be falling asleep in any of her workshops, I can tell you.” – Jim Redtail Collins, PhD Redtail Healing Arts
