Natalie griffin

Owner of Naughty Shaman


I used to spend all of my time worrying about taking care of people.  As the Director of Executive Development for a fortune 100 company, partner, daughter and mother of two children, there were many people on my priority list above me.  In fact, I wasn’t even on the list.  I smiled and worked all the time, but my soul felt empty.  My thoughts on leadership were published in the Harvard Business Review, I ran 3 half marathons, wore kick-ass shoes and tried to get everything in my life “just right,” but nothing would fill the emptiness.  When my mom died, the grief lead to depression and I knew I couldn’t rely on only traditional methods of healing my empty soul and broken heart.  I started my high velocity journey inward through the studies of yoga and shamanism.

Now, I have the courage to live a life that feeds my soul.  I am the Founder of Naughty Shaman, the Director of the Dharma School U.S. and Director of the Naughty Shaman Center for Shamanic Arts.  I am also a 200 E-RYT and was on the teaching staff of The Four Winds Institute of Energy Medicine.  I am currently a Senior Teacher of Transpersonal Coaching for Acersentido, and international coaching company headquartered in Chile.  At The Center, I want to share the inspiration, courage and support I have rediscovered through these practices.  It is never too late to live the life of your dreams.
