Friend, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Mother to two children plus one fur baby~ cat “Hendrix”.
Amanda says her healing journey began many life times ago. Starting off as an intuitive healer at a young age but has been carrying as a profession for 15 years now.
Amanda made her way to Massage Therapy School graduating in March 2006 and became a Registered Massage Therapist in June 2006. She began taking continuing education courses with Scapular Stretch & Rotator Cuff Release 2008, Neuromuscular Integration & Structural Alignment 2008, Introduction to Doula Training 2009, Ortho-Bionomy 2009, Reiki First and Second Degree completed twice 2008-2016 (13 years practice with Reiki). Now working towards her Masters with Andrea Connell of New Leaf Metaphysics. Returning to school in 2010 with Osteopathic College of Ontario. Graduating as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner June 2014 (7 years practicing). After all that learning she felt the need to return to her passions, seeking Mentorship with Shore Charnoe & Richard Szponarski of Circle for Change and Gary James aka Grandfather Blackbear (Anishinaabe Ojibwe Elder) from 2013-present. Where I found guidance with Indigenous Wisdom, Storytelling, Nature Connections, Regenerating Culture, Reclaiming Natural Connection, Stepping into Natural Design, Village Building, Sacred Economics, Kamana, Red Road, 8 Archetypes of Nature Connections, and Ancient Methods of Healing. Her Mentors encouraged her to follow up with Empowering Ancient Ways of Sticks and Stones Wilderness School, which she followed through with in April 2014 learning primitive skills. Then Art of Mentoring with Pine Project being her next venture August 2014 to explore experiential village building and learning to mentor others. She feels she took away so much and still to this day sees the new lessons gained from that week but it certainly needed a pause. Deciding to further her education in Visceral Vascular Manipulation with Toronto Academy of Osteopathy in 2016 as she is required to keep up her education. Amanda was then gifted an opportunity to become a Grief Ed-Therapy Specialization acquiring Certification in 2018. This led to Design for Peace with 8 Shields Institute 2019, Trauma Recovery 2019, HeartMath Certification for Stress, Anxiety, Emotional Management 2020 with biofeedback, and returned to basics with Standard First Aid and CPR Renewal February 2021~ First Aid 4 U. Now that she has joined Ancestral Voices Healing Centre, she has been initiated into the healing energies of Munay-Ki “Love Energy” finishing the nineth rite in July 2021. Such A blessing, and much Thanks to Donna Stares.
This continued learning is a lot when looking at it on paper, all these words can seem overwhelming so we bring it back to one symbol in our minds eye. The spiral: forever cycling. Cycle upon cycle turning into this beautiful flower of life.
While feeding Amanda's own learning journey she has also been co-creating Four Directions Mentoring with Layla Black since 2017. Four Directions has developed many mentoring programs such as: Exploring Nature Connections, Healing with Nature, Marketing Model, Children’s Model, Parenting Model, Building Foundation for the Future, Following a Peaceful Path and much more.

Nokomis Migizinz Cindilee
Anishinaabe Maliseet British French, North East Ontario & New Brunswick ancestral territory. Wolf Clan, Grandmother Bundle Carrier Seer, Sage Healer, Metaphysical Teacher, Spiritual Medium. Reverend Nokomis Migizinz has offered healing work, spiritual advising for 25+ years. She has provided healing work and spiritual insight locally, internationally and has traveled extensively throughout Canada, USA and UK. As a Spiritual Advisor, Seer, Coach, and Spiritual Medium my journey to understand the world of spirit, healing and mystic practice began when I was 10 years of age. At the age of 10, I experienced a Near Death Experience through drowning. The latent gifts given at birth, foretold images, visions, and intuitive knowing was increased after this experience.
I began to study the tarot in 1992 along with various holistic healing energy systems and wellness modalities. With a very clear connection to my helpers (guides), known as the Council to me now, I was led to mentor and practice traditional healing work of my ancestry as an Indigenous woman. With over 15+ years mentoring with traditional teachers and earning the Rite to carry medicine healing practice. My study and application of the medicinal healing with plants is my daily practice for myself and is held in my family passed down. The opportunity to have been blessed to study various teachers USA, Canada and UK in energy systems of healing and bodywork (Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Aromatherapist and Reflexologist, crystal and stonework healing) has lead to strengthen the pathway of healing on multi-dimensional levels of one's spirit.
She is a member of Grandmother's Voice a body of unified Indigenous People creating a safe space for education, cultural and practices. In strengthening the lives of Indigenous People through healing, reclaiming identity and rebuilding relationships.

Sage’s personal journey has also brought further nuance from all that she has healed, transformed and mastered within herself. She has addressed head-on … with all her heart and soul - the wounds & pain from her past. She has moved beyond the old patterns of addictive, destructive patterns that no longer serve her - in her relationships with her Self and others. The power of these old programs/conditioning have dissolved significantly in her life and the lessons and teachings she has experienced have transmuted themselves - have woven into her work - creating a strong foundation for others to expand and amplify ALL energetic aspects of their Self - their multidimensional Self/ Soul essence as Sovereign Divine Creator BEings.
She is now experiencing truly alchemical changes at a Soul level and is thrilled to be a guide for you in your transformational journey as well!

Justin is a Bowen Therapist who’s been in the health care profession for 10 years. Graduated from Mohawk College with Health and Fitness in 2014. After being a physiotherapist assistant in 2015 recognized his passion was in healing. He saw so many people turned way by the physio clinic and he wanted to be apart of that change. Justin began his studies in Bowen Therapy at the Bowen College graduating and starting his practice in 2016. Many people came to his clinic with diagnosis of autoimmune disorders. He then developed a holistic approach for Bowen to help heal the whole-body system through reflexes correlating vertebrae with organs as well as providing advise on nutritional support. What he began to see through this protocol is that his clients became asymptomatic. Showing no signs or symptoms of autoimmune disease. This method has also been successful with clients that suffer with physical chronic or acute pain. This approach has been quite transformative for many whether it be hips, shoulders, knees, ankles or organs it allows for the client to take charge of their own health. Providing an opportunity for clients to find a healthier lifestyle. Bowen Therapy works by stimulating the fascia (connective tissue) that lays just underneath the skin and through out the body. The body responds to Bowen therapy by enhancing healing and encouraging remodeling of the fascia to promote mobility. This stimulates the local sensory nervous system causing a reflex impulse through the spinal cord to the brain and returning to the location of tissue point stimulated. Bowen Therapy treats Headaches, Migraines, Digestive Ailments, Arthritis, Stress, Greif, Anxiety Pain in back, neck, TMJ (jaw), Shoulder (Rotator Cuff), Elbows (Golfer or Tennis elbow) and much more.

MOHAWK- BEAR CLAN – SIX NATIONS
The medicines have been part of me ever since I can remember. I speak my Mohawk language, and attend Longhouse ceremonies. My journey with medicines began when I was only 2 years old. I want to share some of my knowledge of medicines with those who want to listen. My life has its ups and downs but for the most part the medicines are what got me to where I am today. It’s difficult at times as not every medicine works the same for every person. I have learned to let the medicines speak to me. The medicines have saved me from my “crazy thoughts”, the speak to everyone in their own way.

In modern times, it is easy to forget that healing is a process that involves both healer and patient. Many tools are available to help achieve measurable results. In Traditional Indigenous Medicine, healers access spirit guides and advice to help the patient change behaviors such as thoughts, actions and deeds. Without these changes, no healing will be successful for the long term results. Our thoughts are powerful. The trials and tribulations on this earth plane reflect the thoughts of the world as a whole. It is up to us as individuals, to bring back peace and harmony. Showing respect for our environment, our communities, our families and most important, ourselves is key. We cannot change the past but we can influence the future.
At ANCESTRAL VOICES HEALING CENTRE we offer many tools to provide holistic healing. Our therapies include drugless or natural alternatives while considering the many emotional, spiritual, physical and mental imbalances to WHOLE health.
(Iroquois) Haudenosaunee View on Healing
As Natural people of this continent, natural medicine has long been known as an important part of our identity and an expression of who we are as a people. This is something that is naturally understood and instinctively known among Indigenous populations across North America and the globe for that matter. Indigenous peoples have always known and were able to take care of their own health. Sometimes, the individual would be referred to people who were responsible for medicine societies. These people are responsible for taking care of the spirits’ medicine. The Haudenosaunee have always believed in the knowledge of their Medicine people who were ultimately responsible for using herbal medicines to help the people. The Bear/Wolf Clans hold this responsibility.
