Spiritual Practices Expert Shanta Marie is a Soul Candy partner and vision holder who works with clients in sessions, mentorship programs and ceremonial settings. She has been a professional healer since 2004, before which time her innate healing gifts were encouraged and supported in the alternative healing environments she grew up in.

In all her spiritual service practices, including ritual and ceremony officiation, spiritual coaching, meditation coaching, ancestral connection, hypnotherapy, Kirtan, soul art and more, she is present to bear witness to your transformations and reflect them back to you, to hold space for the things you want to create and release, to hear you with an open heart and, when your soul calls for it, to encourage you to move beyond what you think you can do. She declares, “I hold space for your Soul to rise up and express truth. I see You in all your forms. I accept you. I celebrate you. Here is a safe place for you to Be.”

Shanta Marie is currently holding space as co-facilitator of Soul Candy’s transformative Mystic Woman group experience, where she brings this deeply soulful and feminine essence to nurture a sense of sisterhood and community, and where she shares her expertise in meditation, ceremony, ancestral connection, and inner aspects (discovering the different aspects of yourself who influence your feelings and choices).
