Joe Pahl, Full Mesa Shaman


Joe is a full mesa shaman who was taught by 2 master shamans who trained under Dr. Alberto Villoldo, the author of several books on Shamanic healing and Shamanism. Shamanism reaches back to 40 to 50,000 years and has been known in every indigenous culture around the world. It is still practiced today in this hemisphere, mostly among the American Indians. How does it work? For the shaman, there are no natural and supernatural worlds: there is only one world with both a visible and invisible realm. The shaman learns how he can “cross the river” and bring back something for his clients’ healing. When Joe’s not working his day job, he’s fulfilling his shamanic calling by talking to groups, by helping his clients and others find their way to balance and healing, and by dreaming before the fire.



Marie Martin, Beauty Cultivator & Access Bar Practitioner

My name is Marie Martin, and I am an Inner Beauty Cultivator. During my journey of healing my spirit was awakened, from the spark of creativity to the knowledge I am a healer. Now I use my understanding of image to help you change how you see yourself.  Imagine for a moment your outer image can help you heal your perception of who you think you are.  Now believe it, because you have the power to be the woman you always wanted to be. You merely need a bit of help to get there.

My introduction to the fashion industry was with a startup company while I lived in Washington DC. There I started as an assistant designer and went on to design their first high-end dress line. My former experience in fashion armed me with knowledge of trends and sharpened my eye for details. I also gained the ability to work with the statement of an ensemble.

Originally, I am from West Michigan, but I have lived in some of our nation’s largest cities including DC, Dallas and now Detroit. Living in the DC Metro Area, I pursued and eventually received my degree in fashion design from the Academy of Art University.

My programs and services were developed because of my experience being a woman and a survivor!  Beneath my exterior is a person, who knows how cruelty and abuse feel.  I know what it is to come back from the brink of where emotions die. I choose to fight cruelty with beauty and self-acceptance, and I will win every time! I invite you to see what Inner Beauty Cultivation can do for you.
