Sarah Spain

Sarah has studied art therapy in Iowa before heading to the Southwest where she developed her fine art practice and immersed herself in the art of performance. She was head painter for the British American Theatre at Greer Garson Theatre in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Later, the Southwest Learning Center and Albuquerque Museum of Natural History sponsored her work with Xochimoki, an educational, indigenous musical performance group who toured the United States, Canada and Mexico. Sarah then pursued a scholarship to study in Japan and was drawn to the avant-garde dance form of Butoh, and performed with local dance troupes. After returning to New Mexico, she produced her own performance based on the Japanese dance experience and created accompanying prints and paintings that were exhibited in Japan. Recently, Sarah completed an eight-month journey across the United States coordinating efforts for the Great March for Climate Action, where she reconnected with the many artists, shamans and indigenous peoples she has met over the years.

Throughout her life Sarah has has made it a priority to experience a broad range of spiritual ceremonies. Among them include the Navajo sacred prayer ceremony, Chichen Itza spring equinox Sun Ceremony, Yogi Bhajan’s Peace Prayer Day, Lama Foundation’s Sufi whirling dervish ceremony, Zen mediations and Wright Way Organic Resource Center retreats. These experiences have enriched Sarah’s ability to understand personal journeys and the circle of life.


Shannon Krajcir

My healing journey began as a child.  I used to massage family members at family gatherings, to help them relax.  As a teenager I wanted to do something in the medical field so I went to school to become a Medical Technologist.  Along the way I became an aerobics instructor in 1996.  Then in 1997 an Aunt became ill with Stomach Cancer.  A friend suggested I learn Reiki to help my Aunt with her pain in 1998.  Loved it so much I wanted to learn more healing techniques, so I went on a 4 year journey learning Healing Touch.  During that time frame I was asked to learn and teach Yoga.  So I am a Yogafit instructor as of 2003.  Also in 2003, I became certified as a Healing touch practitioner. I have been practicing and learning healing ever since.  I love to help people balance their Chakra’s so that they can heal themselves.  I help to move your energy so that your energy field is working to keep you healthy and happy.  Thus my business name became “Help yourself heal”.
