Antonina Whaples

(Many Names, Many Faces) // Owner @ Kindred Spirits

Antonina was born into a Shamanic lineage. While a child she struggled with her abilities, not knowing what they were, how to use them, or how to fit them into the context of Catholicism/Christianity, her childhood religion. After a series of harrowing life events, Antonina’s ancestors transmitted the knowledge of their sacred ways to her through sacred plant medicine. She uses this knowledge and the skill set of an Alchemist, Daoist, and Herbalist to help her clients move into health, wellness, and spiritual balance. Her goal is to mirror to you the Love that you are, and teach you to cultivate that Love in practical ways in your life: financial success, family harmony, spiritual bliss, and physical health. She is especially talented at helping activate the healing to move past childhood trauma and shame, especially that stemming from strict religious upbringing. She can help you to claim your birthrite spiritual traditions in the context of your core values and belief systems.
