My Shaman...

Whenever I talk about Shaman Durek, the first thing I say is that "he is profoundly effecting my life." I then follow up with a statement like "no words can begin to describe how amazing he is."

I found Durek though a girlfriend of mine who'd been working with him for a few months. I didn't even know what a shaman was when she first told me about him. As soon as she began describing who he was and what he did I knew I had to book an appointment to see him. I held onto his number for some time before actually getting up the courage to call. Yes I wanted to go see him and make positive changes in my life but I was also scared as hell to face some of the things that I held deep down within. I'd spent the majority of my 29 years on this planet repressing as much emotion as I possibly could. I figured it was better to play it safe rather than take the risk of putting myself on the line and be vulnerable. But my breaking point had come and I was ready to move beyond it.

When you go in for your first session with Shaman Durek, you'd swear that either there was sanskrit written on your body or someone called him ahead of time to divulge every little detail of your life. Without saying one word he already knows your history in this life and in past lives thanks to his ability to communicate with your spirit guides. The questions that come out of his mouth are retorical. He simply wants you to say the answers out loud so you can hear them for yourself and recognize them. My first session, like so many, involved a clearing. It's a process used to get rid of stagnant or negative energy. I think it might be one of the most emotionally intense things I have ever gone through. Had I not been there, I may not have believed it. I wanted to stay in that room forever. Shaman Durek makes you feel so safe and everything I had just experienced I wanted to go through again. I hugged him goodbye and was still crying because I knew my life had just changed in the most wonderful way and I had Durek to thank for it.

Since my first session, I have continued to see Shaman Durek on a weekly basis. If I had it my way I would see him on a daily basis. Every session we focus on something new and I feel like these little light bulbs in my head are being turned on one by one. I'm seeing the world in a whole new light, letting go of my fears, embracing what is already mine and learning to reprogram my thoughts. I cannot tell enough people about Durek and I want everyone to be able to see him. He is one the best things to enter my life and my heart sings when I think about him. I thanked him one day for changing my life and looked at me and said "I didn't change your life, you did. I'm just giving you the tools to do it." I love you Durek, you're beautiful inside and out. You turned an emotionally void, scared young woman into free spirit who's open to love and all the world has to offer. I can never repay you for what you have done for me.
