Chakana was founded by Lisa Hendrick and Lucius Wheeler in 2012. We offered classes, ceremonies, mentoring, and healing sessions in Ashland, Oregon and around the world based in our studies of shamanism, physical and energetic healing techniques, curanderismo, herbal medicine, and more. We are honored and committed to translating the shamanic traditions of South America and the ancient healing ways of all lands into new forms to reach modern audiences and address modern needs.
