Through her private practice, the Hollow Bone, Ana Larramendi uses the ancient traditions of shamanism to heal her clients.
Larramendi was 28 in 1989 when she began her journey toward becoming a shamanic practitioner. She spent three days fasting in the California desert to develop her natural psychic powers.
“It changed my life,” she says. “It was a very profound spiritual experience for me, and it just shifted every way that I looked at things in my life.”
During her typically three- to four-hour sessions, Larramendi repairs her client’s “soul-loss.” She describes this spiritual disassociation as a reaction to trauma. “The more fragile we are, the more it shows that there has been a lot of fragmenting of our wholeness.”
