Dr. Ann Drake – Understanding Shamanism and Psyche

Dr. Drake will explore different ways we absorb energies from our families, friends, co-workers, and our previous incarnations. These energies often mask who we truly are and may block us from developing our true potential.


By Western training, Ann Drake is a clinical psychologist. By Eastern training, she apprenticed with an indigenous shaman from Malaysian Borneo for over 20 years. She has devoted herself to the study and practice of shamanism. In addition to teaching and writing numerous articles, Dr. Drake has authored Healing of the Soul: Shamanism and Psyche and her recently released book, The Energetic Dimension: Understanding Our Karmic, Ancestral and Cultural Imprints.
As a child, Ann saw and sensed spirits but her reporting of such sightings was met with harsh punishment. Gradually she learned to shut down this awareness until it was awakened when she landed in Malaysia Borneo as a Peace Corps volunteer where the vibrations of the spirit world permeated her entire being. Since the sightings of ghosts and spirits were as commonplace in Borneo as noticing birds and squirrels in the U.S., it dawned upon her that the ability to see these beings from behind the veil is based on whether one believes in their existence.
