“The Soul Doctor”, Author, Shaman and Psychic Development Mentor, Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified MLD Therapist, Transformational Coach, Ceremonial Master
Denise is the Co-Owner of Ayni Healing Arts Center. She is a Soul Doctor who has treated hundreds of clients since 2006. She creates a bridge between her client’s Sacred Spirits and practical earthly wisdom so the Medicine of Love can work its magic in the mind, heart, body, and spirit. Denise has also been teaching the Medicine Ways since 2010 and has facilitated numerous intense Shamanic training programs. She believes in empowering her clients and students in every way possible. Using laughter, love, and radical acceptance, Denise’s teaching style makes accessing the Sacred a beautiful, gentle, organic experience as she believes it should be.
Denise is currently not accepting new clients. She is instead expanding her Mentor and Public Speaker roles in the community. Denise is inspiring other professionals to understand how Shamanic Medicine can bring tremendous value to traditional medicine.
“The Family Medium”, Medical Intuitive, Shaman and Psychic Development Mentor, Soul Midwife
Joshua is the Co-Owner of Ayni Healing Arts Center. He has been connecting with spirit since a young child. His first documented mediumship experience was in 1991. He communed with an ancestor in spirit and the information he relayed was confirmed as true within 36 hours. Since then, Joshua has developed his psychic, healing, and intuition abilities to a professional level. He has merged his passion for culture, spiritual practices, and family together inside his practice with his wife, Denise, since 2016. Together they collaborate on retreats and other Ayni Teaching programs. Joshua’s teaching style is patient, compassionate, and almost poetic in the way he communicates.
Joshua is still accepting new clients at this time.
