At age 6, JoBeth was identified as having the soul of a shaman. As a fair-haired, blue-eyed nine year old, she began her formal training in Native American traditions. Upon completion of her training at age 13, she was re-gifted her soul-lineage name of Owl Woman - Soul Talker. At age 15, JoBeth journeyed to Australia where she lived for a year. While there she was recognized as Woman of Owls and invited to spend six days with the Aboriginal grandmothers during their sacred feminine Spring rituals at Uluru.
While attending college she was asked to design and lead stress reduction, team-building and motivational workshops for a number of large Northwest corporations. Prior to the completion of her post-secondary education at Gonzaga University in 1986 she began working professionally as a shaman and empathic-intuitive healer. JoBeth continued to expand her career with educational courses in a variety of advanced healing arts, ancient culture and metaphysics.
Today, JoBeth lives in Spokane, Washington with her husband, Bruce. She is the mother of two adult sons and one step-daughter. She develops and teaches an array of classes that incorporate shamanism, quantum physics, ancient history, advanced healing arts and cross-cultural native spirituality. JoBeth has been a professional educator and soul-coach for over 30 years. She conducts personal mentorships and private sessions with clients in the United States and around the world. Her life's work is to assist individuals in knowing how unlimited, connected and innately powerful they are.
