Starting out as a therapist in the mental health and addictions fields in the 1980’s, Star Wolf is a nationally certified alcohol and drug counselor who draws from her personal experience of recovery from addiction.

Dedi­cating her life to help­ing others to release dysfunc­tional patterns of all kinds and to radi­cally trans­form their lives, Star Wolf teaches people how to awaken to the Bigger Picture, embody their own inner Visionary Shaman and step into a life of passion­ate purpose. Her personal commit­ment to sacred activism and vision­ary lead­er­ship led her to create the Shamanic Ministers Global Network.
