Wind Hughes aka The Feminine Shaman™ is a practicing licensed Individual, Marriage & Family Therapist, award-winning Author, Reiki Master, Activist, Musician and Minister.
For nearly four decades, she has combined her experience with Reiki and energy work, along with her licensing as a massage therapist to create the foundation of her integrative approach to her professional counseling practice and ceremonial work.
She founded Highest Good Coaching, a proprietary system she developed for assisting people in discovering their innate ability to attain and live from their fullest potential.
Her vast experience as a psychotherapist provided her the opportunity to cultivate, in her life and work, sincere heartfelt compassion, and a deep understanding of human nature - which now enables her to quickly, and effectively, support clients and students in achieving their life and wellness goals.
Wind has also founded and trademarked a spiritual initiative, program & network dedicated to changing the world - one being, one intention at a time entitled: Spiritual R-Evolutionary. It began with a manifesto for intending an evolutionary unity consciousness based community and approach to life.
Wind's Women's Circles, and Initiation Programs support women in reclaiming the ancient ways of women. Her shaman series, mixed gender initiation programs and her Earth-Based and transcendent teachings provide a way of incorporating ancient wisdom and mystical knowledge into our daily living, and reclaiming the art of sacred ritual and ceremony.
