Native American healing and core-shamanism since the late 90s as an apprentice to a Mohawk Feather healer. Don has apprenticed under several Native American elders from various tribes. Currently an apprentice to a Cheyenne River Sioux reservation member. Don is a certified Reiki practitioner in the Usui Reiki lineage and also a shamanic Reiki practitioner. He uses his knowledge of energy work, healing qualities of stones, herbs, and connection to spirit to guide people through meditation and core shamanic journey work.
Founder, Southwest Trading Company
Beginning a new endeavor after meeting Don in 2017 seemed a natural continuation of joining him after having a successful career in direct sales and senior management with a Fortune 500 Company. Along with having a rewarding career in Nursing, combining these two skill sets has provided me with a strong business background along with the empathy for the needs of our customers. Previous business and nursing experiences makes me an excellent addition to Southwest Trading Company and it's continued growth since our opening in June of 2019.
