"Healing with Mama Medicine"


“Nature is the most powerful healer.” – Deborah Hanekamp

We are so lucky to have seeress and healer, Deborah Hanekamp – aka Mama Medicine, all the way from New York, where she runs her own energy healing space called Space by Mama Medicine, with us today on DENtalks Podcast! Deborah knew she wanted to heal the world at age 8 and after many years of exploration into the healing arts, including eight years going back and forth from the Amazon jungle – she used the wisdom and knowledge she gained to create her own modality called medicine readings. Known as “Fashion’s Favorite Healer,” Deborah shares with us her own healing journey, how she is still finding the balance of business and spirituality, her favorite ritual baths, and how she sees energy through aura colors – we even talk about what can affect your aura like sleeping with multiple partners or addiction. Trust us, this is not your average aura talk! Deborah is such a beautiful light in the wellness space, encouraging all of us that we are our own healers and she is simply here to help turn on the light switch. We are so excited and honored to have Deborah at The DEN for a special Medicine Reading Ceremony event on August 16th! Go to www.DENmeditation.com to reserve your space, it is going to be a magical afternoon!

“If we’re having a hard time finding direction or our truth, we just need to focus on what we wanted to do when we were 8.” – Deborah Hanekamp
