Steve Deeks-D'Silva is a Wiccan High Priest initiated to the third degree. He is a working Shaman. His own awakening to Spirit was dramatic and life-changing. His path of self-discovery started 20 years ago through Yoga and Wicca. When he met Lauren she introduced him to Shamanism and it was more of a remembering than a learning for him. 

For the last nine years Steve has specialised in the removal and transmutation of difficult energies. He also provides safe, professional, soul retrieval including healing, cleansing and integration for the returning soul parts. Steve uses crystal energies for healing on the astral plane. 

If you would like to request Steve's help to ensure you don't have any 'hangers on' before coming on Retreat he can be contacted via his website. Please note he does all his entity removal work from a distance and communicates entirely through email with his clients:
