"Armed with a unique combination of fierce intellect, finely tuned intuition and an ever-present sense of humor, Susan is a true healer — and teacher — of the urban, modern woman. She is able to SEE on a variety of levels (energetic, emotional, cultural, etc.) with a complex understanding of the often clashing realm, and its power to address physical pain and, just as importantly, the fear that often mercilessly accompanies it. Drawing from both ancient wisdom and her own critical insights, she is especially attuned to recognizing and drawing from the quiet strengths and expansive powers of the long-neglected Feminine, from within ourselves and in the world."

- Paula Kamen

"Susan Lipshutz is an exquisite hybrid of conventional psychotherapist and indigenous-trained shamaness. For years, Susan has studied with brilliant indigenous teacher/healers from around the world. She gracefully and effectively brings these ancient wisdom-teachings to the modern world, whose inhabitants are in desperate need of healing our connection to this beautiful planet that we call home.

In my medical practice I have observed a dramatic change in the way people need to process their experiences and emotions, particularly as it pertains to healing physical or emotional imbalance and disease.

Talk therapy has helped my clients, but there is a growing awareness that including spiritual development is essential in not only healing disease in body/mind/spirit but in attaining our full potential as human beings.

Susan has helped many of my patients and friends shift lifelong patterns that are problematic in a matter of a session or two with her extraordinary talents. She is able to "see" where the client is energetically and is therefore able to assist them in going directly to the root of the problem. Susan performs simple but powerful ceremonies with the client which shifts their relationship to the situation and therefore facilitates lasting change.

I have the utmost respect for Susan and the valuable service that she provides to our community. She has great integrity and vision, is wise, compassionate, gentle, dynamic, caring, supportive, humorous, loving and straightforward. She truly is an everyday medicine woman."

"I began my journey with the sisters in my circle with Susan many years ago. Since I entered the room that first day, I knew I had miraculously found my way to something magical. Attending my monthly woman's circle was THE most important commitment I have ever made. I did it to honor myself, to honor my sisters and to honor the sacred feminine. The time we spend together continues to be healing and transformational.

"Susan and my sisters hold me in a sacred web of protection. I am and will be forever grateful to Susan for bringing this amazing work to our community. She is a visionary teacher and friend — leading the way by her courageous example, by living and breathing this work. She has challenged me to look deep into my heart and to think in new, exciting contexts. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work with Susan and my sisters and continue to be inspired by the wisdom, humor and grace in which they operate in the world. I am so blessed to stand in circle with them on this splendid journey through physical, emotional, mental and spiritual transformation."

"Susan has a gentle, wise and 'very human' way in her teaching style. She has been such an inspiring role model with her honesty and courage about her work, that I have started my own Women's Medicine Circle! All women can benefit from teachers and leaders like Susan! She graciously shares the depth of her own journey into the heart and spirit of what it is to hold the Divine Feminine energy so solidly in these changing times. Susan has stepped forward in this lifetime and is 'showing up' to support all of us! I thank God for her strength and beauty, her continuous encouragement, her healing, her humor and love. What a joy for me to have met Susan and my Sisters in the Medicine Circles. I am honoring all of life more than ever now!"

"During the past dozen years, beginning with intensive individual therapy with Susan, I have realized extraordinary transformation in my life. More recently, through participation in a medicine circle and apprenticeship with Susan, I have been initiated into nature-based spiritual practices and cross-cultural shamanic traditions, enabling me to access an ancient self, a soul-essence, which I realize now I have been seeking all my life.

To her work, Susan brings a rare combination of impeccable integrity, creativity and vision. Susan is a very clear and highly disciplined professional in the best sense of a western clinical healer, who has dedicated her life, with beauty and love, to reclaiming and serving indigenous, earth-honoring traditions. The integration of her gifts offers individuals and groups the opportunity to balance the joy inherent to personal discovery and connection with spirit, with our responsibility to engage in a path of service to the community and to mother earth."

"It is always such a magical experience. You just never know what spirit has for you to learn until you are there experiencing it. I never want to miss this wonderful experience. "

– Lori

.

"I just have to say that the atmosphere and community that is created by much hard work by Susan is uncomparable to any other gatherings I have attended. I attended Goddess Gatherings in Michigan years ago and just recently attended the gathering in Tulum.

"Since I've returned home, I have had comments from two separate people that I look better; also I've been told by another person that my energy feels 'lighter.' A most powerful memory for me: after we shared our written stories and shed many tears, I loved each woman stating: 'My name is ____, and I am responsible for my own healing.' The pairing of the twins and the grouping of the tribes was magical, and brought me in close contact with very special people.

"I'm grateful to Susan and thankful for the memories I will carry. I just wish I was geographically closer so that I would be able to stay in contact on a regular basis."

– Joan

.

"I have been fortunate enough to participate in a number of Thirteen Moon sessions and truely loved the experience. It fulfilled the spiritual need that had been missing from my life for a long time."

– Kris

.

"I met Susan about 8 years ago in my late 20's. I was working a fast paced corporate job and living in the city, involved in the singles' scene which entailed a great deal of socializing. Susan's events and one-on-one work with her introduced me to living a more mindful life, and finding my authentic life's purpose, more authentic friendships and healthier relationship with my family and men. During my work, I journaled and embraced my changing emotions. With her support as well as the women around me, I found out who I really was on the inside, which was my awakening to real life.

"I now live in Boulder, Colorado, where I helped to start a girls' summer camp, became certified as a yoga instructor, am active in beautiful surroundings everyday, have supportive friends that like to do the same things as I do, and most importantly have met the love of my life and have a fulfilling, healthy relationship with him and we both have a dog, Tahoe. Words cannot fully describe how this work changed my life and how it changed my path. I will always hold Susan and all the women I met in a special place in my heart. Namaste."

– Audre Slenys

"Thirteen Moons is a portal. Women hold the door open for you, inviting you to enter. So much awaits.

"My soul thirsted for spiritual connection. But it was buried beneath the folds of a heavy dark cloak. So much time and energy spent hiding, muffling her cries, denying her.
Finding and connecting with the incredible women of the Thirteen Moons community filled me with awe. I looked up to all of them and hoped that someday I might learn how to be so radiant. Each session, facilitated with grace, helped me to see that it's not about walking faster, thinking harder, groping for the great epiphany, the ever-elusive moment when I can declare, 'At last! I've figured it out!'

"All I have to do is BE. Cast off the cloak. Allow the light within me, the light that has always been there, to shine. Petals unfold, one by one, revealing the incredible truth: this beautiful lotus is me. Is you. We are gorgeous, intoxicating flowers in an elegant garden, a sea of juicy beauty.

"Discover the Sacred Feminine. Feel her presence, breathing life into everything. Awaken to her mystery and magic. Listen, and you will hear the Wild Woman's howl. She sees you, and she smiles, as your voice joins the chorus of Wild Women in ecstatic song.

"And dance. Like you've never danced before."

– Meg

.

"The events I have attended have been well planned while still allowing for the beauty of improvisation. Always plenty of genuine love, creativity and personal expansion. Blessings to all that make it happen."

– Willie

– Candice Kafka

"On behalf of the community you serve and lead, I give thanks to you, Susan, for the divine circles you help us weave, the profound understandings you help us discover. This song is dedicated to all women as we discover the beautiful, resilient flowers we are and the gardens of light and mystery in which we grow. Blessings."

– Lisa Kenner

“The place, the setting, the healthy food, the people, the yoga instructor, Susan's circle and the shared love from all participants (of the Baja retreat) was the most amazing personal time of growth. It gave me peaceful healing and internal soulful understanding that is helping me walk and enjoy the journey of life. With love joy and so much appreciation to all.”

- Jan V.

.

“I knew that the retreat would be a good experience, but had not predicted how great of a healing experience it would become as the week unfolded. To be witnessed and held in such love by Susan, the other women and the incredible surroundings was simply profound. I can not wait to return.”

- Cari R.

.

"Thirteen Moons is a community that has empowered me as a woman, allowing me to be vulnerable and consequentially to discover my own capacity to (re)connect with my Higher Self, Spirit, Great Mother, and the beauty of healing and transformation."
