Our Shaman has spent the last decade assisting our brave men and women returning to civilian lives after serving in combat zones to reclaim their lives and give them hope and joy. Typically working with individuals to identify the obstacles to releasing a large amount of stress, bundled into the brain memories, to build coping mechanisms, that will become behavior, which will ultimately become part of the individual’s personality. Knowing that these memories have already fundamentally changed the individual at their core, working to build an understanding and will to move past them is critical. These sessions can be done over the internet, by phone, or in person.

After spending a lifetime studying relationships between peoples throughout the world, the Shaman has many different solutions to help couples “mend their fences” and move forward building happy, healthy relationships that are equally successful. Fully understanding of a cultural heritage that provided a role model of equality between individuals the Shaman has developed methods to help couples to see things from the other’s perspective. The Shaman meets with couples either in-person, or via remote communication. He understands that sometimes to complete the work at a couple’s level, one must address each individual within the relationship.
Pre-Marriage – Co-Existence – Same-Sex – Family Planning – Conflict Resolution – Trust Establishment – Social Pressures
Working with hundreds of individuals throughout the world, at every socio-economic demographic that has been called out, solutions can be found that can help men and women go on and live happy, successful lives following a substantial psychologically traumatic injury. With a strong background in spirituality, our Shaman offers simple steps that can help bridge the psychological trauma experienced, to the joy and peace on the other side. Typically working over the internet or by phone, and sometimes in-person, our Shaman offers treatment options for both: the individual, as well as their support team, to ensure a higher level of success.

Certified Western-trained Usui Reiki Master
Using the methods outlined within the practice of Western Usui Reiki, our Shaman harnesses the energies of the Universe to work within the body’s Chakras, thereby allowing for the healing powers of the universe to flood the body and repair damage. These practices have a substantial amount of science behind them now and allow both physical ailments, as well as mental challenges to be addressed either: in-person, or remotely. The power of Reiki healing cannot be overstated.
Mental – Physical – Spiritual
Following a lifetime of research and learning theology and spirituality throughout hundreds of different cultures since before the recording of history, Our Shaman has arrived at his personal spirituality and beliefs. As mentioned elsewhere he was formerly an ordained chaplain of the monotheistic studies, however, after discovering the spiritual realm of his Celtic-Norse ancestors he submerged himself in the associative studies between the understanding of spirituality, and its effect on human psychology. He has worked with thousands of individuals as a “spiritual advisor” where he addressed methods and mechanisms to have happy, mentally healthy lives.
Unlike many in the profession of psychological counseling our Shaman does not maintain an office setting, preferring to connect our friends with the power of Jörð (Mother Earth). His desire is to get a solution in place that will help you enjoy your life as quickly as possible. By helping you balance your spiritual and physical selves, he fosters your own self to create the solutions you need to become successful. He is a friend, brother, many have even referred to him as the quintessential “grandfather” figure. He defines his role as helping you find the answers you need within yourself for you get back to a happier, more fulfilling life. In addition to the traditional roles completed by our Shaman for a community, our Shaman also specializes and can work with our friends in:
Teaching – Rituals – Collaboration
Whether the group be a couple, or (up to) six, the necessity to join together cannot be overstated. By attracting more spiritual energy to a solution, the more quickly the solution can be implemented in our lives. By bringing together individuals interested in discovering a solution, we can generate positive energy toward the restoration of vibrancy and personal energy.
Per Person / Per hour of service
Whether we have experienced a traumatic event, or if a series of mentally challenging events are piling up on our minds, having a voice to talk to and help us make sense of the world grows our intrinsic hope for a brighter future. By joining together with the Shaman in an individual counseling session, you can receive the energy necessary, and the plan to implement change into our everyday lives.
Per hour of service
After struggling personally re-joining the civilian world after military service, the Shaman learned how to acquire the balance between the spiritual self and the physical one. These are the lessons he has taken away to create the “illumination” below. A lock-step process of getting control of our feelings, to deal with them and move on to happier, more enjoyable lives.
Per hour of Service
Meet your future.
The Alaska Úlfhé∂nar is pioneering a better way to find your faith again and live a peaceful, meaningful life.
In the traditions of the Old Norse, there was a particular area in which they knew that they were safe. The area was a type of alter, or sanctuary. The Alaska Úlfhé∂nar recognizes this area, called Hörgr, was identified in most of the Eddas as that place where we are safe to connect our spiritual selves with the gods and spiritual realm. Many societies throughout the ancient world accepted and understood the balance between the spiritual realm of the gods and that of the physical one of man. They maintained their balances between the two in a special place within each village. Whether we gather in the chieftain’s great hall, or a temple dedicated to the gods, there has always existed the idea of the sanctuary.
Why a Shaman?
Many have asked me why one should seek a Shaman when having mental health issues? The answer is actually quite simple. The “Human Condition” requires that our entire “self” remain in balance throughout our lifetime. When either the physical or the spiritual side of our entity should experience a drop or rise in energy over the other, we find that we experience a mental confusion which may release the incorrect hormones into the blood stream, thereby convincing our mind that we feel a certain way, this is how the human body is designed to work. These feelings and more importantly, the control of these feelings fall squarely on the balance of our unique selves.
With the contradictions happening everyday around us created by the millennia of teachings from the modern-day church, we can find ourselves seemingly eroding our intellect with every possible invalidation of certain pillars of already acquired knowledge. The conflict within our minds occurs when we experience something that starkly contradicts the utopia that the modern-church teachings infer.
This is why we should seek someone who has a lifetime of experience outside of these teachings to help us understand a better way forward. Someone who can help us repair the balance between the physical and spiritual selves. The Shaman.
On the way to our solution, we must know that there will arise some instances where we will have to manage the overwhelming impact of a traumatic event in the present tense. We have used the simplicity of my ancestors to help hundreds of patients all over the world, who have found joy and happiness beyond the pain of psychologically traumatic events. While much of the program depends on this simplicity, a critical key to its success is the support network. Primarily this system was developed to assist individuals suffering from severe, to extreme post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms following tours of duty in the military, or extended time as a first-responder.
There are three critical keys to the success of this method:
This process comes from an individual who has endured the steps necessary to overcome the psychological carnage caused when we attempt to reconcile the sensory input of combat, to the societal values of life in a civilized world. While many will assume the “bravado” to cover up for emotional turmoil while retaining a lot of the underlying emotional conflict.
Western Usui Reiki Master trained by Melissa Crowhurst
Reiki is the study of harnessing Universal Energy within the biological bodies to heal itself. By unlocking the Chakras within the body to allow the energy to visit different positions in the body, we find that we can promote self-healing by aligning the spirit with the mind. Aligning his Reiki practices to the studies of magic in antiquity, Dr. Weisman is able to help people to unlock their own potential, to heal themselves for a better life.
While the practice of Reiki comes from the Japanese culture, the association of spiritual energy, and its management to assist the spiritual self to heal the physical self exists throughout all of the indigenous beliefs of the world. While Dr. Weisman applies the Reiki concepts of symbolism and energy channeling into his Celtic-Norse cultural beliefs.
As a certified Western Usui Reiki Master natural healer, Dr. Weisman incorporates spiritual self-healing into his solutions. By helping individuals discover and explore their own healing energies, by opening the chakras fully to experience the Universal Life Energy. Dr. Weisman performs both in-person, and remote, Reiki healing for people around the world.
In the days of our ancestors, each man aboard a vessel would have been required to man an oar, and help the vessel get out into deeper water, where the sails could fill out and carry the vessel and crew across the seas. This same principle has come to define that there are things that we need to do, our action steps.
Please feel free to reach out and schedule some time with the Shaman While some programs take weeks or months to complete, sometimes up to a year. This isn't like that, so let's talk about how this "program" is implemented in your unique situation.
Implementing the steps afterward is a natural progression toward getting this escalating emotional response to dilute the chemicals within the brain, without the need for additional chemistry. We each need to accept responsibility for our actions and our reactions.
You can do this! You can heal.
While the heavy-lift resides with the individual, their support network can be absolutely pivotal in the success of the individual. Let’s look at SBTA from the support perspective. This will become a critical element for the success of the individual. Regardless of the relationship between the support team member and the individual, whether it’s a spouse, kids, girlfriend, parent, good friend, aunt, uncle, or even a grandparent, understanding the challenges and being there to provide comfort and support. Ok, let’s look at what we’ll ask our support team members needs to do.
In our discoveries, primarily working with those individuals who find themselves emotionally "triggered" through certain societal interactions and experience post-traumatic stress disorder, we have developed a straightforward path to re-acquiring a stable, productive path forward to success. Our solution,
Stop, Breathe, Think, Act or SBTA (Sab-Tah)
From the affected individual’s perspective. The steps within this process are incredibly limited, as there are only four, but they are critical as to their necessity within the solution. Throughout our experiences of using this method, we must admit the first step is the most challenging, however, its mastery opens the door to a life of joy and happiness. As mentioned above, the individual must have the intent and the commitment to get to a place of success.
This is one method of helping individuals to build mechanisms to help them enjoy a happier life. The damage caused by the original event will never be “cured”, biologically, or psychologically, speaking, as the best we can ever hope for, is learning to live now with these new memories. This thing to know here is that the brain has experienced a paradigm shift in its understandings and at the same time many of those we interact with haven’t.
Coping Mechanism -> Behavior -> Personality
While our practices include many understandings developed under the spiritual practices of antiquity, I do not demand religious obedience, nor any religious alignment. The methods that we use can be supported by any theology or religious affiliation. We have been told that many have come to a deeper understanding and appreciation for whatever association they have with their interpretation of a deity, the idea that you alone will need to complete this journey is a cornerstone to success.
NOTE: Over dramatization of the individual steps is a “conscious effort”, and therefore includes an intent, as well as the proper signal to the brain that we “know” its time to do something, this is the reason I encourage each of my friends to be overzealous when demonstrating this step engagement.
Dr. Weisman’s advanced degree is in Divinity and psychological counseling. Following a tour in the military, then, several years as a high-value security agent, his need to re-obtaining a societal, psychological balance was a hard-fought journey that, due to the resources available at the time, he had to fight alone. Since then, he has worked with thousands of individuals throughout the decade as a Chaplain, then, another decade (so far) as a Shaman. As a Shaman, he discovered that the spirit is at the direct center of any psychological concerns or issues. By effectively working with the individual to obtain a balance of the spirit, he is able to assist individuals in straightening out their thought processes.
Because of the Shaman’s very busy schedule, he does not seek the certification process necessary to become a counselor for the United States Veteran’s Administration (VA). Choosing to work as a “spiritual advisor”, Dr. Weisman has worked with thousands of individuals to provide an understanding of how the mind and the spirit are connected. Without the need for any type of salvation, Dr. Weisman works with individuals and their support needs to ensure overall success, regardless of their spiritual affiliation.
In addition, Dr. Weisman is a Western Usui Reiki Master healer, certified in the field by Melissa Crowhurst of Natural Healer in Australia. In this role, he uses the techniques defined by the Western translation of the Usui method of Reiki healing. Primarily used remotely, he has completed many in-person healings here in Alaska. Dr. Weisman quite often refers to this method to begin the process of healing with the physical, or spiritual, self.
As such, Dr. Weisman does not accept Medicaid, Medicare, or TriCare. Appointments are on a sliding scale, with donations always accepted. Our costs are reasonable, and the shaman will work with his “friends” as long as it takes (many times without payment) to ensure our veterans are able to enjoy the life that they fought for.
Please read the questions below, before submitting your request for time with the Shaman.
Using the practices of the ancient Celtic-Norse heritage, we can identify and interpret the influences that are causing distress in individuals and help to develop concrete steps to move forward with life. By stripping away the bravado and avoidance we can address the guilt/shame cycle created by the mind in an attempt to reconcile certain acts against that of the enforced monotheistic practices underlying modern society, creating space within the mind where the focus can be obtained to overcome an overwhelming issue of traumatic stress disorders and traumatic psychological damage. Remember, the mind is not “broken”, it is simply temporarily flooded with incorrect chemistry which causes confusion and misunderstanding.
You are not Broken! You have lost your balance.
Throughout this site, we talk a lot about spirituality, and how it applies to our psychology, as it has everything to do with it. We’ve identified that while monotheistic theology has been beneficial to human society, the enforcement of its practice has sometimes been detrimental from the onset, and remains psychologically problematic today to many among us. As we begin to apply the lessons of spirituality from antiquity to our modern psychology, it becomes apparent that the enforcement of the new monotheistic practices brought with it an inherent application of guilt by shame that would ultimately be irreconcilable within our minds as society has yet to accomplish the utopia that the lessons identified. I need to reiterate, that it is not the theology that creates this negative impact, but the forced adaptation that has caused so much irreparable psychological damage, and division of the people throughout its existence. The generational enforcement of the use of guilt by the shame of these practices has created a substantial elevation of modern baseline anxiety, that has caused such an impact of large psychological trauma to the modern-day world.
Many people have come to us when traditional psychology has failed them, feeling the inability to control the sometimes, overwhelming feelings of depression, anger, or mental fatigue. Our approach is to teach methods of simplicity, and by using our built-in powers of honor and integrity we can arrest the undesired mental processes, that then allow the contentment and happiness of our lives to resurface, to be enjoyed.
