Other Achievements

In addition Robin has exhibited her paintings and drawings widely, published numerous poems in publications, anthologies and two books, and authored ten books so far. (See the page on Books, CDs and paintings.)

The Path of the Heart

Since birth she has been able to see energy fields and spiritual presences that live among us. She has been given intuitive, mediumistic, and healing abilities to use for your empowerment, growth, physical and emotional health. She is led to do this work by her own spiritual guidance. Her training with other healers and practitioners honed her work with her intuitive processes to balance and repair chakras, heal and revitalize energy fields, and help individuals explore their archetypes, issues and challenges.

She developed a process with the help of her guidance, which she calls The Path of the Heart. Her third book called Heart Path, Learning to Love Yourself and Listening To Your Guides, features processes to help you love yourself more, and learn ways to listen to your guides. While she channels and communicates with many different spirit guides, her main guide in workshops and private sessions has been a benevolent spirit, WuLan, a Tibetan healer. He also helped her write Heart Path. She now channels Star Woman, Divine Mother and Archangels as well as helping clients connect with loved-ones who have died.

Benevolent, omnipresent spirits are spirits of light who are accessible to all people. WuLan has stated that Robin has an insight that many could have, but that she has it now for the healing of others and in service to all.

Robin believes it is both her privilege and her responsibility to use the skills she was given at birth and has developed healing tools for the highest and wisest good of all beings and the planet.

Her name “White Turtle Woman” came to her through a Native American ceremony she committed to dancing in several years ago. She is a Sundancer and an Ogitchidaah Equa (Woman of the Ogitchidaah).Recently she has been guided to begin to use the name publicly as a spiritual teacher and intuitive.
