About Mia

One day, after years of asking what is my purpose, the Great Universe responded.  I was at a hockey game and someone in the audience played a drum. Drumming completely mesmerized me and reminded me of my first shamanic journey more than 10 years prior.  My first drum was bought.

Then I met my teacher, Simon Buxton at The Sacred Trust, who introduced me to the Spirit, and for the first time I experienced myself in complete fullness and unity. It was like nothing I had experienced before.  

Each additional encounter with the Spirit only increased my thirst for wanting and needing to learn more. The call of the Divine was touching my core and I quit my job in the City so that I could really dive deep into the Mystery and fully step into the path that was calling me.

My path has taken me to The Sacred Trust where I trained in core shamanism and have begun walking the Path of Pollen.  I have also been in trained in Soul Retrieval work by Sandra Ingerman as well as continuously being taught by my trusted Spirit Allies.

 Mia Tolusic – November 2016











Originally from New Zealand, I came to London in 1985 for adventure which surely happened! Post 10 years working for Performing Arts producers, a Reiki workshop led to Past Life remembering experience and clear sign-posting in the Way of the Shaman weekend with Simon Buxton, working in partnership with Spirit.  Training continued at the Sacred Trust in Dorset, completing one year Animal Spirit Medicine training with Naomi Lewis then Two Year Shamanic Practitioner training with Simon Buxton and Compassionate De-possession with Betsy Bergstrom.  Having travelled to Peru working with indigenous healers and further learning from the Shamans of Southern Russia, the influences on my work are wide ranging in perspective.  In 2016 I completed the two year teacher training with Sandra Ingerman in Scotland.

I am a Shamanic Practitioner.  Shamans are recognized when they are young in indigenous shamanic cultures; they are nurtured and taught by tribe Elders.  It is now that Shamans everywhere are counselled by Spirits to share ancient sacred knowledge with those open to listening and learning.  The only way of being that makes sense to me. The work continues to expand.

I know just how tricky it is to find a skilled and trustworthy shamanic practitioner. After all you are putting your very soul in their hands!

In the column on the right hand side I have formulated some pointers to make the process a bit easier..

I actively invite you to send me feedback about the people listed on this website. All information will be treated as confidential and not shared with anyone. However, I will take the feedback into account when making decisions about listing people in the future and making referrals. I am confident I will continue to hear many positive things! Thanks!!

 -  Word of mouth is always best: ask around and where possible see a SP others recommend highly

-  Stay clear of people who call themselves "shamans" (unless they truly are tribal shamans!) 

-  Choose someone whose website gives a transparent account of their own training and makes a point of honouring all teachers they trained with. Not doing so is dubious and bad energy. It is also rather arrogant! All good shamanic practitioners stand on the shoulders of their teachers and ancestors - and they freely acknowledge this!

-  Listen closely to your intuition: do your hear the Voice of Spirit  when you visit someone's website or is it ego speaking all the way? ("I am so great!") Someone who truly IS a great shamanic practitioner will be inundated with work. There is usually no need at all for heavy self-promotion.

 Summing things up in just a few words one could say that shamanic healing is all about 'pulling out what does not belong or serves no longer and then filling someone up with power, Soul Essence, Divine Light and Life Force.  We connect people back to their True Self, their Higher Self outside space and time and their life's purpose. We restore them to a state of creative flow and positive intention. Done well this process triggers self-healing and people walking their own sacred path of healing.

Our focus is on opening SAFE SACRED SPACE and BUILDING TEMPLES OF LIGHT so the spirits, highly evolved compassionate beings as well as angelic beings can work through us to bring healing, guidance and wholeness on the level of soul. The healing does not come from us - we are THE HOLLOW BONE: the healing flows through us.



A shamanic healing is all about restoring harmony in the body, mind and the human energy field.

A classical shamanic healing consists of two components: extraction work and soul retrieval work. However: this work is spirit-led and that means anything can be prescribed by the spirits!  It may be something that has never been seen or done before! Both practitioner and client need to keep an open mind.

Just recently I have observed a fair amount of 'deity work' in my practice: people needing to connect with and work closely with a particular god or goddess. Dream incubation work has become a big theme here as well. Another example is ancestral healing work. Many people cannot feel fully healthy until significant healing occurs in their family, so ancient pain is unraveled and burdens are lifted and transmuted. Often individual soul retrieval work is not fully effective until ancestral healing work is done that ripples out across the larger family field.

Extraction work is working in the human energy body: pulling out intrusions and energy that is in the wrong place, in order to restore harmony. This is done by switching on the "x-ray eyes of the shaman" and doing a body scan to see where the blocks and problems are.

Soul Retrieval work is about retrieving vital essence or "soul parts" that left at times of trauma in a person's life. The return of those soul parts gives people access to the talents, gifts and energy that were their birthright.  

This is what usually happens:

-    LOST SOUL ESSENCE is retrieved and blown into you (sometimes several may return at the same time)

-    We do 'SOUL REMEMBERING' (i.e. we make a visit to your Higher or Sacred Self outside space and time to request a personal symbol or image of your unique soul path, to help you remember what you came to do here on Earth, what your unique gifts/strengths and calling is)

-    We do a ceremony for you to RELEASE ANY SOUL PARTS you may be holding THAT BELONG TO OTHER PEOPLE.

 -    We find out what you need to do, what changes you need to make in your life, to integrate soul essence fully and 'welcome this home'.

When "all of you is here" you are more able to deal with the challenges and opportunities in your life. You are tethered to Spirit and no longer 'knocked in all directions' by the actions and choices of others.

Soul Parts and Soul Theft  

In our society we have lost the understanding of keeping and guarding soul essence. Popular culture hints at the process of losing, giving away and stealing soul parts: "he stole my heart", 'I put my very soul in her hands" etc. Soul theft is common between lovers, between parents and children, in  close friendships, even between colleagues or professionals and their clients. The bottom line is that a soul part belonging to another person is of no use to us, it is energy we cannot use or enjoy - so it becomes 'spiritual baggage' and 'weighs us down'. In soul retrieval work we encourage you to let go of pieces of other people's souls you have ended up carrying and we will call back and return to you vital soul essence that belong to you.

Ancestral Healing is about honouring ancestors and the ones who came before us. Not infrequently the problems and patterns clients present with go back several generations and work needs to be done in terms of the Family Soul seeking balance. Work may involve helping family members cross over, putting rituals in place to honour death and grief in families, but also returning releasing and transmuting longstanding burdens We give the ancestors (as well as stillborn babies and spirit children) a place in our hearts and in our family tree. We remember and cherish so the dead can be at peace.are at peace. In return we have peace of mind and we can live life to the full (not unknowingly live out ancient family patterns or family trauma). Often there are powerful imprints that need unravelling. Deep down we know this when we say "something runs in the family!"

Spirit Release Work  It is possible that a person may inadvertently and unwittingly become a host for another being. That other being is usually a soul that did not make a successful transition into the Divine Light. Such souls often try to attach themselves to a living person for the benefit that a living body provides. In other words they catch a ride on the emotional and physical experiences of the host. It must be emphasized that such souls are suffering beings. They deserve compassion and respect. Possession by a suffering being can cause physical, emotional and spiritual damage as the being lives off the energy of the host.

  "She is a master healer with tremendous abilities"...

Though I am practicing Sharman and past life regression therapist, I have attended a number of Mia’s classes. Mia is naturally gifted healing soul who is very well connected into the wider reality that we cannot see. Her connectivity to alternative reality can be felt with the energy both with and around her. The energy radiating from Mia is very powerful, healing and pure. She is a master healer with tremendous abilities which will manifest through the souls she helps. - Bobby Kapur, London

  "I would highly recommend that you experience this work as it can only bring goodness and clarity into your life"...

Going through the healing with Mia was a very profound experience which has affected me in a positive way- something has shifted and although I still have a difficult unresolved situation in my life, I feel more peaceful, less vulnerable and more grounded. Before seeing Mia I struggled to get on with everyday things and feel positive about myself. Since our session I have started attracting good things into my life, such as meeting a new loving family, being offered new job opportunities and I believe that the Universe and the spirit world are taking care of me and that things will carry on getting better. I would highly recommend that you experience this work as it can only bring goodness and clarity into your life and Mia brings total dedication to the session, sharing her incredible energy to relay the messages through- drumming , dancing and much much more. - Angela, London

  " I would recommend a healing with Mia, as it is a beautiful experience."...

Mia had a calming energy and space which allowed me to put complete trust in her- so important for any healing...The healing process is hard to describe in words and I think that it is best not to even try. I was lulled into deep relaxation...I felt very tired immediately after and the day after and even had to take a nap. I now feel more grounded in my body, energy flowing freely, with some great things coming to my life directly after. I would recommend a healing with Mia, as it is a beautiful experience. Anonymous, London

  " I feel like I can trust my intuition more which is s huge step forward for me"...

Mia was so emphatic and warm and really listened to me. I defiantly felt a sense of peace after my session and a release of negative energy. It has helped me identify a more spiritual side to myself and to source extra strength. I feel like I can trust my intuition more which is s huge step forward for me. I highly recommend.
