Itzhak Beery is an international shamanic teacher, healer, speaker, community activist, and author of three Amazon bestseller books. Born in an Israeli Kibbutz, and now living in New York City, he had a fine art career and owned an award-winning boutique Ad agency before finding his life’s calling in the world of shamanism. Since 1995, Itzhak has bridged the spiritual and practical wisdom entrusted to him by his Quechua teacher in Ecuador and Amazonian Kanamari Pajè in Brazil. Itzhak is the founder of ShamanPortal.org, The Andes Summit, and and co-founder of the New York Shamanic Circle. In addition to offering courses, healing session, and pilgrimages to shamanic sacred sites across the globe, Itzhak is a passionate advocate for bringing Traditional medicine to the modern world - and supports organizations and programs that are committed to doing that in authentic and carefully curated ways. He is delighted to serve as an Ambassador to Shamans Directory in that capacity.
