About Mikki

Mikki Baloy has been practicing shamanic healing for over a decade. She has studied with shamans, ritual-keepers, and mystics from around the world, as well as with Western-minded teachers and peers. Mikki offers private healing sessions, rites of passage and weddings, and retreat and workshop experiences for modern people called to grounded spiritual explorations. Her ancestors hail from Ireland, Scandinavia, Germany, Hungary, and the Philippine Island of Luzon.

Mikki’s holistic approach to healing fuses a mix of ancestral traditions with yoga, Buddhism, and almost four decades of creative training as a performer, writer, and musician (it turns out, her degree in Theater was actually a study in ritual spaces and storytelling).  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. She’s now working on her second book, about Mother Mary.

She is currently a practitioner-in-training in Ancestral Lineage Healing. Other trainings have included EFT, Reiki, Animist Psychology, and Mental Health First Aid. Mikki is also a yoga teacher and minister of animism, and speaks and writes candidly from her own direct experience.

Mikki stands with BIPOC and the LGBTQIA2 community and is committed to donating time and resources to decolonization and inclusivity projects.

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

Mikki helped me see through my depression to underlying issues that were long neglected and gave me the safe space and power to work with them. I walked away from every session feeling a big shift internally. Her patience, compassion, empathy and honesty have played a key role in my growth and for that I am so deeply grateful. If you have been grappling with something for a long time and haven’t been able to move through or overcome it, a shamanic healing session with Mikki may be just what you need.
