Shelby Robbins

Shelby Robbins is an alternative healer and teacher in Louisville, Colorado. Nothing fuels her like showing up for others to hold space for their transformation. Her journey began after attending university in Squamish, British Columbia. Shelby landed herself in the hospital with a heart condition. Here, she met her first teacher. She apprenticed under this shaman for two years and quickly healed her body. She also learned the ins and outs of energy medicine while crafting her own soul’s stamina and shine. She has since facilitated trainings, workshops, retreats, and classes, leading adults and teenagers to their edges. Her studies have also led her to spending three months at a Zen center rigorously finding her path in meditation, completing a few 12-step programs, massage training, and authentic relating deep dives. Her learning never stops. Now she skis, takes long walks with her boyfriend, and throws spontaneous dance parties with her teenage sister. Her mission is to claim the right to be ecstatically alive in all the places that she touches the world.
