All the other senses change as well.
When one sense perceives the hidden,
The invisible world becomes apparent to the whole.”

Ritual Artist

Honoring the significance of life’s transitions, Esther’s work is a creation of living ceremony. Her rich background in Shamanic arts, cultural nutritional anthropology, wilderness exploration including mountaineering expeditions, and somatic dance infuse her work with beauty, tradition and a taste of the wild. Through the art of embodiment, ceremony is brought to life offering participants an opportunity to create dynamic change in their lives.

Esther has traveled extensively throughout the Native American Nations, Meso America, South America, Bali, Vietnam, Australia, the Mediterranean and Greater Europe learning traditional healing modalities, cultural cuisine, and spiritual healing practices. In exchange for their wisdom, she has worked side-by-side in these communities to assist childbirth, served in medical clinics and led pilgrimages to honor their wisdom.

Esther together with her husband Peter, are stewards and co-collaborators with the spirits of Sacred Ute land on the Little Thompson River outside of Lyons, Colorado. They facilitate numerous workshops, rituals, and cultural feasts, to inspire strong connections to the land and community - honoring the natural cycles of life.

As a ritual artist/spirit holder Esther speaks to the yearning for soul that we all secretly harbor: to live in the mystery and to learn to love it. Her clear, steady voice speaks with an ever-ripening authority that's easy on the ears. We orient naturally to her presence as she becomes both guide and supplicant on our behalf, holder of the liminal, humble escort to the between and beyond.
