Spiritual Learning, Guidance, Coaching

I’m Wes Gietz.

My sacred name in the Anicinabe language is Shku-damp’seh — Dancing Fire — “Keeper of the Fire for Dancing”.

I am a spiritual teacher, guide, and coach.

My intention for you:

  • That you know your purpose and contribution in this lifetime.
  • That you experience deep alignment and connection with your own self, with the natural world, and with your human community
  • That you are able to apply concepts and tools for spiritual growth and power in your daily life.

  • The Challenge and the Opportunity

    Many of my students have had challenges or struggles that are similar to my own. Perhaps you too can say “Yes!” to these ideas:

  • You have had a spiritual experience of something beautiful and powerful but without a way to maintain contact with it, and no framework that helps you to understand it.
  • You have felt alone, with no one to talk to, yet wanting to connect with people who will understand.
  • Curiosity and openness. You may have experience with spirituality or energy work such as Reiki, various forms of meditation, healing touch, EFT, or other modalities, and you have a strong sense that there is much more to know.
  • A desire to expand your knowledge and competence in spiritual and energetic realms.

  • The Learning

    Many teachers have spoken of the need for health and authenticity our relationships with our own self (physical and spiritual), with nature around us, and with our human community. The intention of my teaching is to provide a philosophy, models, and techniques to help students move to a higher level of consciousness and competence in all of these dimensions. This enables us to contribute to all of humanity through being actively engaged, by healing or teaching, or simply through being what we are: “A rising tide lifts all ships.”

    Individual Spiritual Coaching and Guidance

    In your Spiritual Coaching program you are coached on your spiritual path in an individualized program designed to meet your aspirations and needs.

    This program provides guidance in a fashion similar to the ways in which ancient cultures would mentor learners according to the gifts and guidance of each learner, augmented in modern culture by use of sophisticated technology and understandings of the mind, physics, and the spiritual realms.
