Anne Siems has studied with Hank Wesselman on Journeying as a path of attaining higher wisdom, as well as June Blue Spruce, Barbara Ocskai, and Sarah McClean Bicknell (on dream work). She has participated in a variety of ceremonies and other shamanic work–medicine walks, shamanic voice work, and ceremony gatherings, like Turtle Dance and Women's Soul Gathering in Port Orchard, WA.
Her work as an artist, as well as a person with a chronic illness, has been extremely influenced by shamanic work.
