About the presenter:
Rev. Monika Kojote is a Druid shaman serving the North American, Ireland, European Union, and United Kingdom communities for over 14 years. Monika uses she/her pronouns and is a member of the hearing-impaired community (ASL-inclusive). In her practice, she works consistently to create safe & sacred space for all marginalized and disabled populations. Her education & experience ensure that she is a trauma-informed clergy person and healer.

Although she is based in Washington County (Maryland), her in-person services and workshops span the East Coast & Mid-Atlantic regions. Her practice includes individual and group/family ceremonies, as well as house clearings, journey workshops, spiritual mentoring, divination, and clergy services(weddings, baby blessings, end-of-life care, and funerals).

Monika uses the term “shaman” as a job title, describing healing that occurs in ethical relationship with Spirits. Her ancestry and personal spirituality reflect the practices of the Indo-Europeans; she follows a Druid path.

Monika received her master’s degree in forensic psychology in 2005, and has over 20 years experience working in the public domain of health & human services. She has extensive spiritual training, including her master level certification in Usui Reiki, completion of a 2.5 year program from Gryphons Grove School of Shamanism (now closed), soul retrieval, Druid Apprentice training programs from AODA , and training in Nepalese healing techniques from her jhankri, Bhola Banstola.
