"Whether your issues are burried deep in the dirt or just under the
surface this woman can help. Shanti Mai had a keen sense of knowing how
deep to go with me and when. The journey was bittersweet and successful.

-Karen Moore, Anchorage, Alaska (part-time in Langley, WA)
She is accurate and unflinching in her assessment of inner and outer pieces of the puzzle, sensitive in her perceptions and care of the person sitting with her, and somehow melds strength, wisdom and heart into a blend of support that is uncannily helpful."
Shanti has the most amazing presence -- radiant and yet grounded. During my session, she immediately saw through the elaborate defenses I've been living behind and lovingly challenged me to embrace my divine self. It was a relief - liberating! - to realize that I could not hide from her.
Mai walked into my place of business at the perfect time. I was
in desperate need of clarity. She provided just that. We
connected instantly. She
showed me how to be honest with myself. Shanti Mai guided me
through self introspection, helping me find my truth. She has a no fuss
method that cuts through the superficial and allows you to do the work,
"I will be eternally grateful for the gift you have given my [6 yr. old, gifted] son and I. I was not aware I was recreating old relationship patterns from my childhood, and that I was teaching him to close himself off from his heart. 'Thank you' does not begin to describe what I feel inside. You have helped me remember what is truly important and given us both the tools to strengthen our bond and truly live the life we have been given.
home from our meeting with you and were able to use what you taught us
to turn around a potentially negative moment into one of reflection and
harmony. [My son] was able to take what you said and apply it to the
situation at hand. Instead of building a wall and tuning me out, we were able to connect and feel what the other was feeling
and try to understand where that frustration was coming from. He was
able to open himself to the possibility that I could teach him
something new. Once we both reminded ourselves to listen to our hearts,
we saw exactly how each of us was affecting the other.
In the short time that we spoke with you, my heart has lightened, and I am now able to release the hurt of my childhood. I think I now have the tools to move on and face a bright future that I hope includes family healing on all levels, starting with me letting my mom back into my life after nearly 4 years of not speaking.
The universal truth you shared with us today has given me the clarity to let light and love back into my life and teach my child by example. I have a renewed hope for our future. We would be honored and blessed to continue to have some sort of connection with you.
I feel so strongly about your healing abilities and your genuine desire to help, that I have told the most important people in my life to seek you out and I will continue to sing your praises and spread the word about your love and generousity to all that I meet. Thank you for being so generous with the gifts you have been given.

"In the midst of darkness and misinformation it's hard to rise above the pain enough to see the Truth. Even a counselor and healer needs a voice from the outside, a bright light to lift one up and illuminate the way. Shanti Mai was just the bright light I needed at a key juncture on my path. She has the gift of compassionate insight and the wisdom that comes from hard-won experience.
into your eyes with a love that touches your soul deep inside, reaches
in and finds the knot that needs untying, and offers the precise
support you need to untie it. Thanks for being there, Shanti Mai!
After 30+ years of asking 'why' and needing to know/understand to be able to feel (to be able to heal), she brought knowledge AND clarity AND understanding. Without me saying a word Shanti Mai figured out in less than 1/2 hour the 'why' I have been looking for all these years."
"Shanti Mai's clarity and honesty have helped me to break through some major impasses. I've done a lot of it on my own, with her expert and trusting guidance. It was hard to see the mess I'd created for myself, but in the long run, I am so very glad I did."
- Tim Darden, Atlanta, Georgia
After I got off the phone with you, I cried (hard) for about 20 minutes straight. I wasn't even ready to stop but I made myself because I had an appointment at 10:30am ha ha.... bad idea. In between the sobbing, I heard myself laughing. When I heard myself, it made me laugh harder because I sounded so funny. I laid on my back, spread my arms and lets out and just let it flow. It felt so good to let go like that.
"Within the first 5 minutes, Shanti Mai broke through my blindness with her kind-hearted intuition and keen perception. By the end of my 20-minute session I was able to see the issue with more honesty and love than I had thought possible.
- Diane Parris (Clinical Associate Professor - Boston University)
"Wise, compassionate, irreverent, honest. Shanti Mai has walked a step ahead of us, and I'm glad she's turned around to give me a hand up, so that I can benefit from her experience."
"In my recent session with Shanti Mai (my fourth), I was reminded why I seek her help. Shanti combines her gift as a seer with great compassion and understanding that comes from her own depth of experience. Her sessions are like a conversation with a dear friend that knows you well and will listen with empathy, but will challenge you to release all your limiting patterns.
Shanti Mai was able to ground me back into my body and emotions and gave me a strategy for doing that for myself in the future. I can now see what growing awareness could be like and am less afraid of the power I've kept hidden under pain. She reminded me of what I already knew (and I needed to hear). She saw my biggest fear and still loved me.
"Shanti Mai, thank you! Satsang was remarkable. Although I didn't go up and sit with you, the experience touched me deeply. You said that whatever message one person was given applied to all of us. It did. Not just in a general way, but very specifically. The experience was profoundly healing. Many things have shifted for me, including the ability to write a children's book I've long wanted to do. The compassion and love that you shared with us that evening continues to blossom in my heart."
"I felt like
I already knew Shanti Mai. In a very short time she helped me get
clarity about the dynamics of my relationship and provided me with
insights that have helped me take steps to improve the situation.
"I'm someone with a life-long interest in Metaphysics and eastern spiritual traditions who is nonetheless skeptical of many Healers and psychics, but it only took me a few minutes of working with Shanti Mai to determine that she was the genuine article.
With very little knowledge of my personal history, Shanti Mai was able to accurately assess my life situation, guiding me out of the maze of mental suffering, and teaching me some very simple techniques for reconnecting with my heart and my original, unblemished nature. I'm still reaping the benefits from my one session with her, and would strongly recommend that anyone going through life crisis or change, or looking for spiritual guidance, contact Shanti Mai; she'll be able to help you in ways that no other counselor can."
"Shanti Mai is very compassionate and easy to talk to. I felt very
"I have had sessions with traditional therapists and counselors, none of whom reached into the depth of my Being with such ease. With compassion, Shanti Mai brought into sharp focus the crux of my difficulties, presenting me with tools I could use on my own. Shanti Mai is an ever-encompassing and empathic soul who brings forth true and immediate healing, transferring the energy of her presence, and the power of her vision, to those who seek her out."
"A dental client of mine, previously unable to relax enough to allow a needed root canal treatment, rescheduled and contacted Shanti Mai for help. Sedative and narcotic drugs are often used in such situations, but my client refused to take such drugs.
At the next attempt,
Shanti Mai was immediately able to help our client connect with and
resolve deep-seated fears that were affecting their ability to relax
-Shawndeya Costello, Marcola, Oregon
The best way to describe my experience is this: I took a walk down my path of fear, knowing that I needed to face them in order to grow and get past them. I did that, but I did not go there alone. Shanti Mai was right there, holding my hand and guiding me - so that I could see them for what they were - limiting beliefs - that I had the power to let go of any time I was ready to. It was quite an emotional experience. She also taught me how to "go to that place" by myself and do the work alone, if I choose to.
She is a very gifted and special person and I am very glad that I had this experience with her. Thank you Shanti Mai.
"Shanti Mai is one of those rare people with loving insights that can really help us to see ourselves clearly. I asked Shanti a serious question that was bugging me and she gave me a very insightful answer that immediately made sense and resolved my concern. She has many wonderful resources to draw from and was really helpful. I think Shanti Mai is aspecial person who is anchoring the light and goodness into this reality!"
