The Shamans Secret
March 1, 2007
“The Underworld is an amazing place! The work that is possible here can and does have a tremendous healing effect on the emotional and physical bodies.”
Throughout the centuries, shamans have shared their secrets only with other shamans…until now. Jeff Cooper, a shaman and healer, will give us a glimpse into the realms in which shamans work: the “Underworld.”
“For those who have not faced their shadow selves,” Jeff says, “the Underworld is a dangerous place; yet, it is a place that we need to maintain.” He will tell us about the entities that populate the Underworld – those that help us and those that grow on our fear and pain and will explain how to work with these beings to transform them into energies of joy and goodness. Jeff describes the Underworld as a living place where our power animals and guides live and work for our higher good; it is where we first change and grow in our spiritual awareness and where we create the energies we will bring into the physical. “I realize the importance of this realm and feel strongly that people need to know more about this magical area where anything is possible. I feel that I am very fortunate to have been allowed to walk this path and be able to help people.”
From birth, Jeff was led to follow his own spiritual path, and has been guided by shamans from this world and beyond. He has trained and practiced as a shaman for over 20 years. His teachers in the physical realm have included Standing Oak, Little Bear Lockamy, Sandy Harig, Lois Holland, and Marie Deans; he also works closely with ascended masters the Elder, Sirus, and Sara. He travels to the Underworld daily for his continuing lessons and for the healing of others. He hosts a quarterly sweat lodge, at each equinox and solstice; and he creates aromatherapy formulas to facilitate mental, physical, and spiritual healing for his clients.
Although working in the Underworld is his main approach to helping others heal, Jeff will use any of the skills and abilities he possesses to help his clients overcome whatever challenges they face. He feels strongly that he should maintain and honor the ancient approach to healing, spiritual growth, and development, yet he has enhanced his traditional shamanic teachings by becoming a Reiki master and teacher, an herbalist, and an auricular therapist (healing energy pathways via access points on the earlobes). He has helped his clients heal such illnesses as leukemia, breast cancer, mitral valve prolapse, carpal tunnel syndrome, and depression.

Jeff has been led to share his experiences in the Underworld to help all of us understand ourselves and our power to change and heal. “My approach is, most times, a comfortable and efficient way to heal. I have always been guided to be original in my work.” Learn why your life is moving in certain directions, or why it keeps circling back to the same issues; and get new ideas on how to protect and sustain your personal Underworld.
