Reverent Work of Shapeshifting
Working together privately can be an invaluable experience, and provides you with the opportunity to really dive into the dynamic unfolding of your life. Individual sessions will enable you to go deeper into the depths of what is unknown and what is revealing itself to you. It also allows me to track you more fully and with greater attention to the emerging story that carries your emergent shape. Your entangled way of belonging to the world.
Such reverent work often resides in the places and spaces of our lives where transitions are afoot. Transitions that can present as loss, death, upheaval, psychospiritual dismemberment, severance, relational unraveling, or the slow (sometimes rapid) crumbling of who we thought ourselves to be. These transitioning spaces punctuate what we have been and what we are becoming. They are liminal chasms that both un-make who we are, and re-shape who we are becoming. A becoming that is also a re-membrance of our way of belonging to and with the world. Profoundly, and sometimes subtly, in-forming our understanding of our personal knowings and the times we spring from, we are shapeshifted by these transitional spaces.
My work as a guide is supporting you in allowing such shifts to occur - to help you be in-formed and trans-formed by your relational enwebbment that is woven out of your ancestry, community, dreamtime, the imaginal, the place(s) you live and more. I also assist you in embodying the deeper emergent story that hums with the wisdom of your own personal knowing. This emergent process of re-membering has the capacity to come alive within your muscles, bones, blood and skin. Just as we are de-formed by the transitional spaces of our lives, we are also being re-formed and in-formed into something stunningly and achingly true, radical, and authentic.
Questions such as who am I, what's my purpose in life, where do I belong, what do I believe, or why do I exist articulate rich lines of inquiry that are a part of the living conversation that is one's life. You may feel dizzied and confused, perhaps even excited and terrified by the pervasive feeling of not knowing and not having the answers. Or it may be that the questions you once asked are not the right questions for you now. You might even find yourself wondering where to begin?!
The longing to live the deepest emergent truth of who you are with the world permeates the cells of your body, and beckons you toward radical personal transformation.
Personalized Sessions - Devotional Pathways of Re-membrance
Individual sessions vary in focus depending on the nature of the space you find yourself, and what is needed to continue being with what is ending and what is emerging. In such spaces, I assist you in continuing to be in-formed and trans-formed by your experiences and relationships (human and more-than-human). To continue to let emotions, images, wounds, ancestral marks, shadow, dreams, and numinous experiences work you into a profoundly new shape.

Co-Created Pathways of Engagement
Together we will co-create ceremonial pathways of engagement that weave a container for this ongoing work of your own belonging and remembering. In the hum and buzz of your daily living, personalized sessions become a devotional space where the sacred nectar of your life can be tended and turned into holy honey. The pathways we choose together can range from embodiment and movement practices to invitations to wander with the land and dreamwork; from artistic mediums and writing to trauma & wound tending and shadow work.
** Equine-Informed Sessions are also available - where you, myself, and my equine partners, Luca & Cisco, work together through inter-species relating. No experience with horses is necessary, and there is no riding involved. These sessions are in-person.
You matter because you are a mattering force in this world!
Your emergent shape is a sacred contribution to a world that is both unraveling and being re-woven.
As a guide - as someone accompanying you and supporting you, I want to know what it is that aches in your bones.... what keeps you up at night... what stalks you and courts you in your dreams... what vow it would kill you to break... what longing both terrifies you and compels you to relinquish well-worn narratives. I want to know how you, in your distinctive way, wish to honor this shared and exquisite life. I want to help bring you closer to the lit angel you desire to be. I want to help you reclaim what has been banished and exiled... to let the creature of you breathe, expand, and play.
As a fellow creature of the world, I want to see all the magnificent ways you can and know how to co-create and participate in the emergent worlding and un-worlding narratives whose vast, and far-reaching implications will always be imbued with an unknowable mystery.
I have been guided by Amanda Jade Fiorino for roughly a year. The impact on my personal unfolding has been profound. She is adept at the art of hearing and seeing to the essence of what her client is communicating both somatically & through dialogue & storytelling. She is uniquely skilled at synthesizing & mirroring the clients material in a way that is most delightful, evocative, & illuminating. A wisdom keeper far beyond her years, she has laid the most spacious field for me to explore realms where mythos and imaginal knowing entangles itself most potently with the soft animal body of human incarnation. No spiritual bypassing here. She is One that will meet you in the field beyond right & wrongdoing and there she awaits you on fertile ground to explore what Mystery ushers forth. She is muse & medicine for our time.

Amanda has the ability to see me in multiple ways. She is able to hear the true story beyond the words as well as feel, sense, reflect and highlight truth. I often feel like I am going to work with a peer, a mentor, a guide, and a friend. I feel very loved and supported and am grateful for all the terrain she has interpersonally, outwardly, and spiritually traversed so that she is able to meet me and understand the depth of my stories and the power of my growth. Amanda is a gem for our time and I truly trust her as one of the many helping to shape a better world for us all.
Holistic Psychotherapist, Facilitator & Ceremonialist
“Working with Amanda as a mentor through Feral Mysticism has offered the kind of care and witnessing for my soul that I was longing for. The exploration together, and the process of transformation that she guides, is a beautiful experience of living into the multi-dimensionality of being a woman, human, and steward of the Earth. Our work together has gifted me with renewed possibilities for my path and has strengthened my connection to the mythic threads of my being that I will be humbly embodying, I’m sure, for the rest of my life. I have much appreciation for the ways that Amanda’s sensitive reflections, potent questions, and wildly loving presence has nourished me - through what feels like a sacred friendship - in my journey of remembrance, wholeness, and deepening into the fullness of who I am.”

"Amanda is more than my teacher and coach, she is a guide to the depths of my soul , my connections to my ancestors and 4 legged kin, as well as helping to decenter me from my self-limited concept of ego to eco"
"Amanda creates a beautiful, safe sacred space wherein she reflects back so lovingly her observations, notice-ings and witness-ings. Gently and yet steadfastly assisting you on your journey back to your Self."
Amanda is an extraordinary connector, gently guiding her fellow humans to communion with their inner worlds, with their bodies and movement, with nature, with other creatures, and with each other. She has an unusual ability to help others navigate their dreams; with me personally, she helped me see a delicious clarity and lucidity in a powerful dream I had experienced, in a way that made me pleased with myself! Drawing on her multi-tiered educational background, knowledge, and sensitivity, Amanda exhibits a true openness, and a joyful presence, which she inevitably inspires in others.

"To the one who cracked me up, and open.
These words of gratitude have been resting with my womb voice for some time (a length of time that is both ancient and being born as I type).
My work with you continues to resonate in my bones, and the bones of my ancestors and the bones of my little one. There is a deep sigh of gratitude for the way in which you held my paws to the flames, and pushed me to honor parts of myself that I was (and still am) fearful of.
Nothing short of magic, mystery, depth and difficult beauty to be found in a session with you, the kind of discomfort that is needed. Work that I needed, and is so needed in this world. There were/are the deep cackles and belly laughs too. The sounds of healing, undoing, redoing and blossoming."
