Hi there! I am Brodhi River Bartlett, my pronouns are they/them. I am a proud Queer, trans, non-binary intuitive life coach. I have been practicing intuitive life coaching for 14 years. As a coach I will work with you to uncover what your passions are and how you can discover the deeper meaning of your life. If you are feeling lost, like your compass is spinning, come in and sit down. It would be my honor to serve you in this way.
I have been transitioning since 2006 and I now proudly inhabit a body I feel safe and comfortable in. I work with all members of the LGBTQIA+ community as well as allies but it is my greatest pleasure to work with trans clients.
I grew up in Queer in a deeply religious rural Midwestern farming community. My first memories are of knowing that I was trans and being forced to keep it a secret. My early experiences allowed me to deepen my connection with the natural world and my own intuitive nature while also teaching me that the rigidness of traditional religions are not meant to set you free. It is my truest belief that the Divine lives inside each of our souls, meaning that one need not ever set foot inside of a certain building to connect with their own spirit, intuition and divinity. It is my purpose on this Earth to help guide you to your own inner light switch; I can’t do the work for you, but I would be honored to hold your hand and walk next to you as your guide.
I use a variety of methods to connect, uncover and translate what the Divine (The Universe, God, Big Spirit, Big Sky, Mother Nature, Consciousness, insert whatever name you prefer to call the Creator here) including Reiki, Tarot, stones, oracle cards and channeling. My purpose on this Earth is to be a bridge between you and the Divine; to translate what the stars are trying to tell you so that you may learn to hear the voice of your own intuition.
Tarot: I have been working with the Tarot for over 10 years and it is by far my favorite method to connect to the Divine. Tarot cards serve as a conduit between the higher self or soul (unconscious) and consciousness. The purpose of the Tarot cards is to reveal or illuminate what is unconscious so that it may become conscious.
Reiki/ Energy healing; I have been exploring Reiki since I was 6 years old and actively practicing Reiki for 2 years. Reiki is hands on healing that can be done in person OR through distance, meaning I can perform a Reiki attunement on you through the beautiful and safe medium of zoom! The purpose of a Reiki treatment is to relive stress and pain, induce relaxation, release emotional blockages, accelerate natural healing, balance subtle body energy and support other medical modalities including traditional therapies.
MEDITATION: I have been practicing meditation since I was six years old (26 years!). Meditation helped free me from the mental prisons I had been trapped in. It is my belief that everyone benefits from meditation, but it can be hard to find accurate information about the practice due to the current mindfulness craze. Where does one even start? Meditation is not about shutting off thoughts- that’s impossible. Meditation is the moment that we realize our mind has wandered off with a thought and we bring the mind back into the present moment.
YOGA: I have completed 500 hours of advanced training in yoga. I specialize in accessible yoga; yoga for ALL bodies, all abilities, trauma informed, gentle practice to deepen the connection between the body, mind and spirit. Through the practice of yoga we can strengthen and stabilize our spiritual practices. As a person living with cPTSD and the chronic auto-immune disease lupus, I specialize in yoga for chronic illness, dysphoria and knee injuries.
SPIRITUALITY: I have studied spirituality and religion since I was a child, always feeling drawn to the freedom of spirituality over the dogma of organized religion. I believe all paths lead back to the true source and I work hard to keep my work non-denominational. I am an ordained non-denominational minister and have an associates of arts degree, focused on comparative religions and visual art. It is my goal to ingest, digest, and absorb all the spiritual information I have gathered in this lifetime so far so that I can help you awaken and uncover your true purpose.
Thank you so much for visiting my website. I encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions about booking. The light in me sees and honors the light in you.
