Shamanic Work

I have known John Kenning for over eight years.  John’s wisdom and spiritual gifts helped me through a difficult time in my life.  John compassionately worked with me to relieve suffering and I received deeper understanding of my healing path.  Another wonderful thing about John is his bright energy that lifts those of us who are around him.

I know John as a student of spirit and member of the Healing Circle (www.fivehealers.com).  John’s knowledge of reiki, shamanic practitioner, and animal communication serve as a platform for his moving others in their efforts to grow in spirit.  John’s caring and loving nature only accelerates that process!

Being “balanced” is one of the most important attributes of a Shamanic Practitioner. John Kenning balances humor, humility, innate wisdom, excellent training, skill and insight. He has a generous nature and is completely trustworthy. Some Native Americans call a person who does Great Spirit’s work a “Hollow Bone.” John comes as close to deserving that title than just about anyone I know.

Sitting down with John is like being with a wise and kind father.  He is nothing but love.  His booming laugh brings you back into the heart of life.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from my soul retrieval from John. I was recovering from a major surgery to remove a large tumor from behind my right eye. What caused this tumor? What can I do to make sure this doesn’t happen again?  How can I change my sense of having lost control of my own destiny?  I hoped the Soul Retrieval would give me some answers.
I went to John with a good friend who would keep me present and witness the experience to keep it real for future reference. After a brief question and answer introduction with John we began. All I had to do was lay there and be present. John did all the work and I could tell he was working very hard. I don’t remember how long it took. But once it was done, John told me at which  childhood with ages I had lost bits of my heart. He told me what my life’s purpose was, and he gave me hope that things would be better.
It was a few days later that something strange happened. There were three women in my life who I knew had taken (or who I had given) control over my very existence. It was something of a shock when after my soul retrieval each of these women contacted me and told me that something had come over them instantaneously and that they each had let me go. My wife and I had been estranged for over six years with little to no contact; she told me she had a sudden feeling of love again for me.
I now take responsibility for my body, heart, mind, and soul. Thanks John for giving me this new start to life.

After many attempts at “traditional” therapy to heal some very primal and ancient childhood wounds, I found John Kenning. Yes, his methods seem unconventional – but I can honestly say, I’ve made more progress in healing the many deep wounds of my childhood after one session with John than I have with years of traditional counseling. I feel so much more confident that my feet are on the right path and that I am finally progressing to a place where I can feel whole, safe, and worthy of love and friendship – with myself and with others. He is caring, gentle, and gifted.

 John is a compassionate and caring practitioner, who provides his clients with in-depth explanations of the shamanic process and a description and explanation of their personal experience. He also provides a list of follow-up suggestions for the soul retrieval integration process. My experience of John more than met my expectations; my needs were addressed and resolved satisfactorily. In addition, my personal friend was able to witness a shamanic healing first hand, which was an eye-opening experience for him! Thank you, John.

Divination Work

I have been blessed to have John facilitate my healing process for many years.   I fully trust his connection to a greater source and always feel that the words that come from him are divinely directed. I have used him as an Akashic Records facilitator and as a Reiki healer for my sweet dog, Beau.  Unbeknownst to me, Beau was in her last year of life.  After John was with her, he gently announced that I needed to start saying my good byes… I was not aware that Beau was even ill!  Six months later she passed. The six months I had with her were filled with gratitude and awareness of this sweet connection that she had brought me.  It would not have been the same experience had I not known that she was in decline.  I am grateful for John’s intuition and his ability to communicate his findings with kindness.  He is a humble conduit to the spiritual world of healing.

Drum Making

Our experience with John was exceptional.  For one, his laughter is hearty and rich, imbuing our time with joy and meaning.  John was responsive and sensitive to our unique situation, and was a supportive guide as we lovingly crafted this beautiful drum.

Learning to make our drums with John was a very rich experience from beginning to end.  It was soul-filling and full of learning, love and laughter.

Weddings

My husband Desmond and I had struggled quite a bit with trying to find an officiant for our wedding that could represent our spiritual beliefs while including our families’ need for a religious ceremony. When we met with John, we knew that he was the one! He invited us to his beautiful home and helped us center our needs. When we talked with him, all anxieties about our families’ desires and our wedding details vanished. We were able to focus upon ourselves and the absolute celebration of being together. We knew that our spirituality and love for each other would be represented in the ceremony and that he would be able to provide a spiritual feeling for all those attending, regardless of religious preference. We were not disappointed! He performed a wonderful, genuine ceremony that instantly assuaged our nerves when standing up in front of so many friends and family, allowing us to focus on each other and the amazing journey that we have since embarked upon. Our many thanks to John!Kelly and Desmond McNeese, married September 24th, 2006

Having John as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made. He  truly got to know us, our personalities, and what we wanted in our ceremony. He created a unique and loving experience that we will treasure forever. We were truly blessed to have him be a part of our special day.
Ricky and Allie

 

John Kenning is the kind of ritual facilitator we hunted for. He took time to listen carefully to the meanings of where my husband and I had been as a partnered couple and with what intentions we would cross the threshold of marriage. John kept to his word that the ceremony was ours, and to the last minute accepted changes to the languaging of our vows. John is like a Bear: willing to embrace each person and enthusiastic in the tracking of a celebration!

Animal Reiki Work

I met John Kenning a few years ago as a fellow volunteer for PAWS, a locally run animal rescue organization located on Bainbridge Island, WA.  I was immediately impressed by his skill in relating to the cats at the shelter.  This first impression was reinforced when I asked John for help with my own cats.  John used a combination of Reiki, Shamanic and Communication skills to help relieve stress and territory issues among my five cats. While doing his work with them he discovered personality traits (that I never shared with him) which allowed him to individualize their “therapy” to their best advantage.  It helped tremendously! Most recently John was able to communicate and give comfort to one of my cats who was grieving over the loss of a feline housemate. Thank you, John.

We felt John’s powerful presence with our beloved dog, Macy, as she immediately calmed and connected with John.  His translation of Macy’s needs and wants helped us to care for her during her last days & months on this earth.  Thank you John for your gentle way!
Donna Zajonc and David Womeldorff


John Kenning’s practice has been invaluable in our work with companion animals. His energy work is a calming and beneficial influence for our sanctuary animals, bringing a necessary balance to a potentially stressful environment. Combined with animal communication, John brings to the table tools that enhance the more western “scientific” approach to animal and human health — tools that strengthen and deepen the animal/human bond.

Animal Communication

My family and I adopted from the Kitsap Humane Society a 1 year old black lab mix whom we named Roxy.  She was abused and then abandoned inside a locked house for some time before her rescue. Needless to say, Roxy was a bit shy and nervous around everyone. New faces meant her hackles went up and a deep growl would come forth, her ears would lay back and her tail would tuck deep between her legs. We knew she had a good heart since she took so readily to us, but we also knew she would need some extra TLC to get over her anxiety with meeting people. Enter John Kenning. About 30 hours into our new family relationship with Roxy, we invited John over to do a little Reiki work and – if possible – to communicate to Roxy that she was in a home where she would be cared for and loved forever. John spent about 30 minutes with Roxy out on the deck. They were silent. As John sat with his face level to Roxy’s she would come up to him, then run across the deck,  come back to him repeatedly. When John and Roxy re-entered the house, her whole demeanor had changed. Her tail was wagging, her ears relaxed and, from the moment she walked back into the house, she became a lapdog. Albeit a 63 pound lap dog – but a lap dog nonetheless. She has settled into her home, welcomes new people with joy and has become a happy, secure and delightful member of our family. I cannot recommend John highly enough. Every time he comes over, Roxy is overcome with joy – as if he is a long lost friend. His ability to bond with and heal even the most abused of animals is a divine gift for which my whole family is thankful for.

John routinely impresses me with his warmth, humor, and love. I know no one with more compassion, integrity, or spiritual depth. His heart is pure; his work is immaculate. He reveals his deep personal commitment to be a blessing to this world in every action he takes. I could not recommend anyone more highly.
