What people say about me
I’m pleased to include here some of the comments that people have given me as a counsellor, speaker, coach, and facilitator. Thank you so much the retreat last week. It was obvious you had put so much care and thought into our time together. People were still talking about it days later.
Chipo created a welcoming and safe atmosphere for participants to relax, learn, and have fun. Professional in her approach, sensitive to the diversity of people, balanced with a wonderful sense of humour and fun, Chipo presented many concrete ideas and useful information on how to take care of ourselves and each other in this often stressful world.

I guess I could say that Chipo helped me heal, or that working with Chipo saved my life, but somehow that is contrary to her teaching: Chipo offered me choices to help me heal myself and helped me save my life, and supported me every step.

In 2002, I crossed paths with Chipo, who taught me various medication, intuition, and self-healing techniques during a period of intense, inner turmoil.
— Andrée Paige, Ottawa
Chipo’s gentle spirit and strong, sure guidance helped me reach new depths of awareness. If you plan to attend just one retreat this year, make sure Chipo Shambare is a presenter! You won’t recognize yourself after a session with Chipo! She’s incredible!

Chipo Shambare is among the [rarest] and gifted healers I have ever encountered in my career. She is also one of the finest human beings, blessed with a deeply compassionate and intuitive soul. She loves easily and with grace. During our years together as student and teacher, I have observed her dedication to the healing arts grow with passion never wavering. She is a solid professional as well as a blessed soul—the perfect healer’s alchemy.
— Caroline Myss, Ph.D.
I have worked with Chipo Shambare for over 14 years now. She has always provided a safe forum for me to delve into issues, some buried deep in childhood experiences, where I was able to release “old baggage” in order to heal. She has opened my horizons by challenging my beliefs and sharing her own personal discoveries.

I am truly excited for people at my school to have a chance to meet a healer like you. And thank you for helping me discover my Shaman within the other night. Chipo, there is simply no other healer I would rather learn from than you.
