Gerry Starnes, M.Ed. began his practice using both psychological and medical treatment models in the mid-1970s. Finding the results of these modalities limited, he began a 20-year journey through energy healing and other alternative methods of healing.
In the 1990s he encountered shamanism, and found it to be the most powerful methodology for healing in all the realms: mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical. Now, as a shamanic practitioner, he offers group and individual sessions, holds regular classes, and presents a variety of workshops in Austin and the central Texas area.
Gerry is a Founding Member of the Society of Shamanic Practitioners, and Executive Director of Ravens Grove Foundation for Healing, an Austin-based non-profit organization.
