SkyWolf is a wandering shaman in search of answers, especially to the question “How can we dream a better dream?” Originally from the NY and now living in North VA, he’s been wandering the pagan and kink scenes for about 15 years and found that his current path of Primal Shamanic Spirit Hacker was waiting for him all along. Usually found sharing his famous sacred sangria, he lives to teach, guide, and promote healing to empower others to live passionately. While proficient in multiple skills and tools, he specializes in shamanic healing especially dealing with trauma, spiritual explorations, and connecting with primal energy. Outside of presenting at events or groups, he runs his own school of shamanism teaching a unique approach to shamanic technology that enables anyone to learn and become effective. His personal heroes are Jim Henson, Batman, and Spiderman. As a child, he was raised on Addams Family, Marx Brothers, George Carlin, and Monty Python and now has enough issues for a subscription or two. Drawing upon his many years of IT security (CISSP, CEH), gaming, and fencing, he has a unique way of thinking and presenting. Whether he makes sense, speaks madness, or both is entirely up to you.
