Shamanic Weight Loss

A Shamanic Intensive- Just $97

You know how some amazing, heart-centered people have a longing to carry less weight but feel hopeless because everything they’ve tried has failed?

This program is designed to help you lose weight gracefully and to keep it off without struggle. What people often don’t understand is that sometimes aspects of ourselves have a misguided idea they are helping us, or even working to save our life, with behaviors that cause us to gain weight rather than release it.  Most programs address only the physical and mental aspects of weight loss, completely omitting any work around soul patterns, energetic sensitivity, or past life healing.

If we’re at war with ourselves to move the needle on the scale downward, no wonder it can be an exhausting, uphill journey in which we lose ground the minute our attention shifts to something else in life.  This program will help you understand the main gremlins that work against weight loss.  In this program, you will create healing and gain the skills that will allow you to wrangle each of them gracefully so they no longer have the power to run things in the background and sabotage your weight loss results.

It hurts my heart to see people who contribute so much good to the world suffer from reduced self-value or shame around this issue.  In addition to helping you release weight, this program will give you a massive boost in shaking off all that icky cultural nonsense that ties your value to your size.  You may have plenty of peaceful, life-affirming reasons for wanting to drop some physical pounds, but let’s ditch any shame or self-judgment around this aspect.

As you can see, I'm not exceptionally thin, but can smile and share a picture of myself in a bikini (no Photoshop alterations).  Let's get in grace with our bodies while releasing pounds, instead of waiting until after we're happy with the number on the scale.


Module Topics

Module 1: Calm the Instincts- trying to balance your body to a healthy weight when the instincts are activated is miserable.  They will howl for you to eat food that’s harmful to your health in large qualities.  Abstinence when instincts are active creates huge tension and hyper-focus on the thing you’re trying not to eat because the instincts believe you are more likely to die if you don’t eat the donut.  Get help calming the instincts and learn more about how to wrangle them before you start trying to wrangle your food choices.

Module 2: Energetic Sensitivity- I gained a lot of weight early, in part because of my unmanaged energetic sensitivity.  The world is psychically noisy for sensitive, intuitive people.  If you don’t know how to filter out the intensity and protect your delicate, nuanced energy system from external chaos, this need is often met with a dampening layer of fat.  It helps.  It really does.  That being said, I’d love to help you build better filters and shields so you don’t need extra physical weight to protect you.

Module 3: Pleasure- Adulting is hard!  By the time we’ve finished all the things we have to do, we’re often out of hours or energy to engage with things that feed our heart and soul.  Anyone who’s spent time with or near a toddler on a plane has heard the results of too much structure, behaving, and conforming over a period of time.  While adults are a bit more sophisticated, in essence, if we don’t get some pleasure out of a focused day, we get pretty darn grumpy.  Things like sugar, carbs, fat, and alcohol cause releases of dopamine and serotonin, happy hormones.  It’s a quick hack to give us a dose of pleasure, anytime/anywhere.  This module will help open pathways to the full spectrum of healthy human pleasure (pathways that often become numb with disuse) and help you find ways to activate pleasure holisitically.

Module 4: Emotional Numbing- Learn how to clear the backlog of stuck emotions so that food isn’t calling to you to avoid feeling too much emotional stuff.  Increase your emotional intelligence and develop a better way to deal with day to day emotionality that doesn't involve food.

Module 5: Shame and Cultural Conditioning- The more you internalize shame and culture messages about weight, the harder it is to make a shift.  This is a nasty feedback loop that I’d love to help you to dismantle.

Module 6: Past Life Healing- Most of human history has had most humans suffering at one time or another over lack of food.  Past life starvation can impact your current relationship with food.  Let’s clear out history so you’re free to have an up-to-date experience of not need to carry extra weight as a protection against future lack.

Module 7: Install the blueprint- Sometimes we’ve done all the inner healing needed for weight loss, but somehow the weight doesn’t shift.  The human body defends stability as does the energy body.  By working on shifting the pattering and blueprint, we introduce new possibilities to your body to configure itself in a different way.

Module 8: Protection- sometimes too much attention feels unsafe and a few extra pounds, ironically, are a good way to diffuse unwanted focus.  This is especially true of needing sexual protection for women.  While people can be stunningly sexually attractive at any size, a larger size tends to diminish the amount of sexual objectification women find ourselves forced to deal with.

Complimentary Facebook Group: The Facebook group is open to women whether or not you join the program.  You can sign up here: The Facebook group is a place where I can share free content and for the members to support one another on this journey. Men are welcome in my Shamanic Weight Loss Program, but with so much gendered societal complexity around weight, I’m creating a specific container on Facebook.  (Note: I'm intending "women" to be inclusive of anyone who identifies as a woman.  Non-binary people are also welcome if you've mostly been perceived as female.)

The format: You can work through the modules at your own pace, with a new one becoming available each week.

Recommendation: Soul Retrieval session with me.  While it’s not required, it seems deeply unkind to ask yourself to lose weight if pieces of your core essence are missing.  Read more about soul retrieval here:

Katie Weatherup

As a former engineer with 20 years of experience working as a shamanic practitioner, my work draws on both the practical and the mystical, allowing me to help people find their way back to themselves while improving their real-world results in terms of health, money, and relationships.

At 24, I found myself stepping into my adult life with an engineering degree, unmanaged psychic gifts, and a painful lack of interpersonal skills.  I was overwhelmed, overstimulated, and exhausted a good deal of the time.  Yet, this led me to an amazing journey of self-discovery that continues to unfold to this day.  I now have three published books (including Practical Shamanism, A Guide for Walking in Both Worlds) and am thrilled that my full-time shamanic practice has allowed me to work with thousands of clients all over the world.  My social circle is rich and extensive to a degree I could never have imagined as a lonely teenager who got along better with her goats than with her fellow human beings.

My mechanical engineering background has helped me focus my healing work on the necessity of system integrity. The human spirit is a highly complex system, that can break down in complicated and subtle ways. Much of my shamanic work is oriented toward wholeness. I help people recover their power and magic as well as all the parts they’ve lost, forgotten, denied, and disowned.  I’ve done more than ten thousand shamanic journeys and am very comfortable working with the hard, scary stuff.

I would be honored to support you in coming home to yourself and in living a really good life that just keeps getting better!
