The Church of Earth Healing has provided teaching, healing and spiritual counseling within a shamanic framework in Athens County, Ohio since 1990, under the guidance of its founding ministers.

Crow Swimsaway, PhD and Bekki Shining Bearheart, LMT, are shamanic healers, teachers and spiritual counselors who have been teaching shamanism together since 1982. We offer energy healing and bodywork, shamanic journeying, ally retrieval, shamanic extraction, soul retrieval, and psychopomp work. We provide shamanic divination and astrology and tarot consultations as a source of guidance. As licensed ministers, we perform legal weddings (handfasting) as well as other ceremonies and rituals based in pagan and shamanic traditions.

The Church of Earth Healing is located at Dragon Waters

In June 2007, Crow and Bekki presented a paper at the 8th conference of the International Society for Shamanistic Research, titled Revivalist Shamanic Practice in Non-Indigenous Communities in the US. It details work done by us and our advanced students, and discusses shamanism and shamanic healing as an inherent  human process that is natural and inevitable in all human cultures, including our own.

Capall Bann Publishing, based in the U.K., has now published three of Crow's books:
Spirit Knife,Soul Bone: The Ancient Shamanic Art of Extracting Negative Energies (originally self-published through Seventh Direction Publishing), Circle of the Ancestors, and Anecdotal Evidence.

These titles are also available directly from us.
