What clients say about sessions:
Robin is my shaman. Through her energy work and teaching I have found personal vision…growth and healing. Even after a move across country, I receive just as much benefit by phone…. It is just as if she were standing in the room with me. Thank you Robin!
Peggy Leitch, Dental Hygienist, Albuquerque, N.M.

Her hands are blessed, her presence heals. Emily Jacobs, Octogenaria, San Rafael, CA
My God I needed this class. Thank you Robin, it was just perfect, restful, gentle and spiritual. It felt like a beautiful dream, not the usual industrial type of workshop. I feel revitalized, spiritualized and harmonized. Michael A. B., Teacher, Santa Cruz, CA
I consider my sessions with Robin as spiritual counseling. They have kept me on track in my life and helped me make changes that I have needed to make to be more happy. Jim Finkelstein, Chairman, CEO, FutureSense, San Francisco, CA

Who is Robin White Turtle Woman Lysne, Ph.D.?
Born in Rockford, IL, as Robin Jan Heerens, she is an author, medium, psychic and highly skilled energy medicine practitioner. She has degrees in Art (B.F.A.) from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI; Spirituality and Psychology from Holy Names College, Oakland, CA (M.A.); and numerous certificates in various healing modalities. In 2012 she earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing-Poetry from Mills College, Oakland, California, and in 2013 she finished her doctorate in Energy Medicine from the University of Natural Medicine, Santa Fe, NM. In addition Robin has exhibited her paintings and drawings widely, published numerous poems in publications and anthologies and authored three books. (See the page on Books, CDs and paintings.) 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 and the Archangels as well as helping clients connect with loved-ones who have crossed over.
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 White Turtle Woman believes it is both her privilege and her responsibility to use the skills she was given at birth and has developed as a healing tool 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. Recently she has been guided to begin to use the name publicly as a spiritual teacher and intuitive. Her latest book, Handbook to Heart Path, for Therapists and Healers teaches others how to use The Heart Path process for their clients. This book is being released in 2014, and can be downloaded from Smashwords, and through other embook venues.
