Shelby Robbins is an alternative healer and teacher in Louisville, Colorado. Nothing else fuels her like showing up for others to hold space for their transformation. Her teachers and training's have been many. After attending university in Squamish, British Columbia, Shelby landed herself in the hospital with a heart condition. Here, she met her first teacher. She apprenticed under this shaman for two years. Here she learned the ins and outs of energy medicine while crafting her own soul’s stamina and shine. She has since facilitated training's, workshops, retreats, and classes, leading adults and teenagers to their edges. Her studies have also led her to spending three months at a Zen center rigorously finding her path in meditation, completing a few 12 step programs, massage training, and authentic relating deep dives. Her learning never stops. She does heart centered work rather then head centered. Her mission is to help you claim the right to be ecstatically alive, in all the places that you touch the world. No matter where you are in your journey, if you are willing to delve deep, she would be happy to guide you through the fires.
