-Rev. Joe 'Jaguar Wolf' Doherty-

As a psychospiritual healer, Joe believes that in healing the body / mind / spirit, we move from an Ego-driven way of thinking to a Soul-based way of living. 
Joe uses contemplative psychology, meditation, yoga, shamanic breathwork and energy healing as paths in assisting individuals with connection to their 'core' self. It is only through connection with our core that we can know our real self: our truest wants, needs and desires. Through knowing and expressing ourselves in relationships we create healthy mutuality .
