Jody Breton: Ceremonialist & Interfaith Minister


Jody Breton brings to her Shamanic Healing practice three decades of study of indigenous healing and spiritual pathways.  In the earliest years of her practice, Jody began her journey into Shamanism on the Pine Ridge Lakota Sioux reservation where she met and studied with her first teacher and mentor. To this day, she continues to participate in the ceremonies and lifeways of her teachings.

From there Jody experienced many other practices including those of the Huichol tradition as instructed by Eliot Cowen, Sage Blue and others from the Blue Deer Center in Margaretville, NY.

Jody studied with Dory Cote for five years and has completed The Center of Earthlight Healing’s Core Shamanism training and Advanced Studies; including Dory’s 5-Day Soul Retrieval training.  Jody has taken training from The Foundation for Shamanic Studies with Nan Moss as well additional training in advanced shamanic healing including Compassionate Depossession with Carrie Bancroft (in Betsy Bergstrom's tradition).

Jody’s passion for being in service to others is reflected by her choice to become an Ordained Interfaith Minister in 2011.  In addition to her Shamanic Healing practice Jody offers Spiritual Companioning and Direction and officiates all Life Celebrations. Jody has designed and led many ceremonies including House Clearings and Blessings.

Additional contributions include Reiki Master, Dowsing and Death and Dying support.

Jody’s warm and cozy healing space is located in Freeport, Maine.

Jody married us on June 4, 2016. When we asked her to officiate our ceremony she talked with us and asked one critical question about our relationship; this was a pivotal moment for us. She asked us what three things built the foundation of our relationship. Our answer became the basis to the creation of our unique and personal ceremony. We were married in the wedding garden we built together by the woman who inspired its creation! Jody is magnificent, loving and inspirational! We felt held by her through our entire process.
