About Me

Mikki Baloy has studied with shamans, ritual-keepers, and mystics from around the world. A student of many traditions, from her mixed ancestral bloodlines and and others, gives her a unique opportunity and responsibility to be a bridge-builder between the worlds of our ancestors and the Western paradigm. Her intention and commitment as a healer (and as a human) is to gently remind clients and communities of their birthright: an inherent connection to land and to Love.

Mikki’s holistic approach to healing is both intuitive and grounded, fusing indigenous traditions with yoga, Buddhism, and more than three decades of creative training as a performer, writer, and musician.  She was the Director of a 9/11 foundation in New York City, helping to create and maintain programs to assist many thousands of people—while undertaking her own healing journey.  She is the author of Hallowed Underground: Sacred Hope and Healing in Dark Times, which describes her recovery from PTSD, depression, divorce, and sexual assault, and she has been featured in two books about post-disaster resiliency. Mikki is also a yoga teacher and minister of animism, and speaks and writes from her own direct experience.

Mikki’s expertise includes:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and Panic Attacks
  • Resolving known traumatic experiences, including sexual assault
  • Recovering from abusive relationships
  • Grief, sadness, and bereavement
  • Rites of passage and navigating transitions
  • Supporting physical healing after injury or illness
