Fearadh na fàilte! (warm welcome!) I am Juliette Jarvis.
As a bean feasa living in the qathet region of BC, I work with the medicines within the lands and waters of this beautiful traditional Coast Salish territory as well as the traditions of my Scottish and Irish ancestors.
People come to me for personal healing work, to attend ceremonies, and to establish an animistic, earth-centered, 'shamanic' way of living. Online supports for your spiritual practice through videos, audio recordings, magazine articles, and discussion groups are also available. I invite you to look through these pages to find what resonates with you and message me to arrange a meeting or with any questions you may have about an upcoming community event.
* Please Note *
Many of my long standing offerings are currently on hold as new ways and new places of engagement are being developed. Everything from converting sacred living immersion programs into book form to building new facilities for the restart of in-person gatherings. A lot of my focus has shifted to creating ritual wear, ceremonial ceramics, hosting devotional arts programs, and writing monthly columns. Following Selkie_Sanctuary on instagram and visiting www.SelkieSanctuary.com will keep you in the loop of happenings and offerings.

Early Novel Access: Of Mud, Blood, String, and Bone
Currently being written, "Of Mud, Blood, String, and Bone" is a tale that centers around a used bookstore owner who finds a journal style grimoire and becomes obsessed with its contents and unravelling the mystery of its author. The reader follows along two narratives, one of the shop owner's daily events, and the other, the grimoire's entries as she reads them.
This story is full of sacred living practices and ceremonies; spirit journeys, divination methods, Solstice celebrations, talisman making, sin eating rituals, dream interpretation, demon hunting, and much more. As she reads the passages, she begins to learn the lifeways and techniques the mysterious author has written about. Her life begins to shift, and strange happenings start to catch her awareness as she sets out to discover who the author is.
The intention behind this novel is not only to offer a good story, but also as a means to learn or deepen one's sacred living practices, in a manner that softly guides those who are new, and reaffirms practices for those who are seasoned practitioners.

Inspiring words from those I've worked with
"I was in a dark and painful place and just when I thought nothing could help me, Juliette made her way into my life. The calm and powerful woman that she is can be felt from miles away. I truly felt different, a shift in my energy... She is teaching me to open my heart, soul and to use the power that lays inside me. Juliette the positive impact you have made on my life has changed me forever. Thank you for bringing peace, light and joy back into my life... You are an amazing woman." ~ Mimi
