My name is Cedar Bear. I am a teacher, spiritual guide, lightworker, and sound healer. It is my great desire is to assist humanity with allowing the full potential of who we truly are through offering ancient and modern tools for healing and spiritual awakening.
At the age of 9 my sister taught me Tibetan Buddhist meditation practices. Since then I have been fully dedicated to my spiritual growth. I spent my early adult years, however, partying very hard and abusing my body. With the sex, drugs, and rock n' roll type of lifestyle, I became addicted to drinking, drug use, and womanizing for many years. I eventually hit a deep dark bottom. During a time of great need, yoga quickly came to the rescue for me and literally saved my life. I sobered up and started my journey of being fully dedicated on the path of healing and spiritual awakening.
During my life I have experienced and healed abuse and trauma, caused by others and myself, which brought me to deep states of darkness and despair. From this raw and real state I found the will and courage to find the light of Source energy within me, to completely fall in love with myself. This experience brought me to a place where I can now hold space and facilitate healing and awakening processes for others. I have personally gone through many different forms of alternative therapy, spiritual counseling, energy healing, shamanic healing, shadow work, exorcisms, and addiction recovery. I have had trauma recovery work related to: physical/emotional abuse, depression, abandonment/attachment issues, drug and alcohol addiction, 20 years of porn addiction, codependency, anxiety, and panic attacks. I express these things to let you know that like you, I am human. I have experienced much suffering, pain, and darkness. If I can heal and love myself unconditionally, I know you can too!
With the great desire to heal, gain wisdom, and become empowered, I have gathered many different practical tools. These tools can be used daily and can be customized to meet you where you are mentally, physically, and spiritually. The lineages and systems that I have studied include: Hatha Yoga, Tantric Tibetan Buddhism, Lightworker Training w/ Tatiana Sakurai, Usui Reiki, Sound Healing, Bhakti Yoga, and more.
I am a husband, father, guardian warrior, Light & Love wizard, initiate in the Brotherhood & Sisterhood of Light, and a lifelong student. I desire to serve and support humans with healing, awakening, and mastery of self. I am dedicated to assist others in becoming empowered to live out their true life's purpose. I am here to remind you of universal truths and offer ways of finding alignment
with the Source energy within yourself.
I am humbled and honored to assist you on your journey.

A session with me is intuitive and customized to meet you where you are in the now moment and is structured around your specific goals and desires. The session is organic in its unfolding and will flow to meet whatever arises moment to moment. I have a large tool belt of services and offerings. A session with me can include one focus like a yoga class or sound healing. Or a mixture of multiple different modalities and tools can be applied in a single session.
Some tools I may use during a session:
* You are truly willing to receive healing in all areas of your life.
* You are ready to step into the fullness of who you really are and become empowered and wise.
* You want to learn about universal truths and are ready to face those truths.
* You desire to deeply heal and transmute past trauma, physical and or emotional pain.
* You have frequent thoughts and emotions that you want to transmute and move beyond.
* You want to stop repeating harmful patterns.
* You want to create a personal feeling connection to Source energy within and around you.
* You want guidance related to being an awake and compassionate person and how to navigate being in this changing world.
* You want to create beyond what you think is possible.
* You are willing to take total responsibility for your healing.
