Katy O'Leary Bagai
Shamanic Practitioner & Healer, Team Bonding Coach, Shamanistic Life Coach, Cosmetologist, and Fire Keeper
Katy always knew that her life purpose was to help others find their inner truths. Having extensive experience as a trainer and mentor in both the corporate and real estate worlds, she felt like there was always something missing, and ten years ago she found it when she became a cosmetologist and "daymaker". She is at her happiest when she makes someone's day!
About a year before she opened Rishi Salon & Spa, her path as a mentor and healer began with a debilitating back issue. After being told she most likely would have to have surgery to relieve her chronic pain, she decided to find another way and went to a Shaman for help. Not only did she not have surgery, but her life quickly changed and doors starting opening throughout all aspects of her life. Her miraculous path of awakening to Shamanism began through the healing of her body and past traumas, and she soon found herself in a class with Sandra Ingerman, and later with Raleigh based Shaman Teacher, Chris Krohn. She is a full mesa carrier in the traditional Andean cosmologies, and continues her path by engaging in advanced training with reknowned Peruvian Shaman Jose Luis Herrera, who is also the founder of the Andean Research Institute in Peru.
Katy not only performs energy healing using traditional Peruvian energy medicine techniques, but she also holds a monthly fire ceremony at Unity Center of Peace. She also has amazing team bonding events, teaches workshops and courses, loves to create customized ceremonies for all kinds of occasions, and is a Reiki Master.
