SOI Clairvoyant Readers
Heather Gatto – SOI Clairvoyant Reader / Soul Retrieval Practitioner
Throughout my life I have used my visionary skills in a variety of ways, from artist to yoga instructor to shamanic practitioner. My spiritual path has had two influential beings: Char Sundust and my guru Mata Amritanandamayi. Through their guidance, I am able to live a life that is good, true and beautiful. This allows me to serve others for the highest good. I utilize my ability to see, hear, and feel spirit in order to help others receive the guidance, healing, direction, love and clarity that they seek. Readings tend to have two parts: the first inspires by bringing hope, deep feeling, understanding, and the energy of love; and the second offers tools for transformation through specific directions given by spirit related to actions to be taken. Energetic healing is also used when it is needed.
It is my sacred intention to offer my self as a hollow, holy vessel, one that brings about help and healing for the highest good and for the greatest joy and upliftment of all for all times.
Marti Joslyn - SOI Clairvoyant Reader (Animal Communication)
From a young age Marti Joslyn has been blessed with a variety of animal companions. Growing up on a farm in Michigan, she was able to experience the interconnected web of life, particularly the beautiful wisdom animals hold. Marti tended to the various animals on the farm and feels fortunate for the relationships she developed with these animals. Observing local wildlife was especially delightful for her. These connections were important foundation stones for her life work with animals, especially significant for her work as an Animal Communicator.
In her 20’s she studied and worked in the medical field, in Physical Therapy where her compassion and empathy were integral in service to others. Marti and her partner were blessed with the birth of a son and then a daughter. Becoming a mother increased her joy, curiosity and appreciation for all living things. In her early 30’s Marti and her partner started an educational outreach program combining the study of Natural Science, with emphasize on hands-on live animal presentations, in elementary and middle schools. This was particularly needed as our education system seemed to have a disconnect between earth science and our fellow Earth inhabitants. As a response to this situation they started a non-profit education foundation, hoping to bridge this disconnection. Marti felt honored to facilitate the sacred connection of children with other living creatures in a nurturing and safe space. During this time she cared for animals of great diversity from horned sharks, turtles, snakes, horses, goats and porcupines to more exotic animals such as macaws, wallabies, alligators and binturongs and octopi. Marti and her family moved to California in the early 90’s, to continue connecting children, as well as adults, with a wonderfully diverse group of living animals.
Currently, she and her partner reside near Seattle, where she is currently a third-year student at Sundust Oracle Institute. In addition to pursuing Shamanic studies Marti is also interested in Reiki, Cranio-Sacral and other healing modalities. She has honed her skills as a compassionate and empowered listener. From her many years of experience, Marti understands that all animals, domestic and wild alike, have much information to communicate from their unique perspective. Her deep love and respect for animal wisdom is available to all.

At a young age Roshi started to talk about vivid and waking dreams with her mother, as she described as spirits communicating with her. Her mother and family member encouraged her that this was real and they would talk about these dreams.
As a teen, her dreams told about future events that then came into being. Roshi started seeing illness in or around people and traumatic events like pictures. She used her hands to remove infections, fevers, ease pain, move the back bone into place, release headaches. As she matured, she knew she needed help to understand these gifts and needed a teacher.

Mia Roozen – SOI Clairvoyant Reader
I am a certified shamanic practicioner specializing in intuitive readings and soul retrievals that lead to healing, renewal, and the manifestation of life dreams. My intention is to open up and really listen for the person. I generally look at the whole person, what is working, what is needed and what can be let go of at this time for them to move more fully toward their highest good. Each session is as unique as the individual in the room. I integrate tools and clear directions into the work so that the person leaves feeling energized, inspired and empowered. I have been pleasantly surprised at how natural the work is and how clear the Spirits are in their information and directions. Having grown up with some challenging situations, I understand first-hand how this work saves lives. It seems that some of us come to this after exploring many other avenues and then find how well it works. Some of the beautiful aspects of this spiritual practice are the endless opportunities for growth and the learning and practice of unconditional love and acceptance of ourselves and others wherever we are on our path. Through this, as a daily practice and a commitment, we heal each other and the earth.
I have been trained by Char Sundust through her three year program and I have her blessings to practice. I continue to work and study with her and I follow the teachings closely. I am grateful to Char for her continual leadership and courage in moving Spirit’s work into the realm of visible and accessible.
I have been reading professionally at Eco-Elements, the Rosebud on Capitol Hill, and Andaluz in Columbia City. I am honored and humbled to be able to practice work that can have such profound effects.

Trish Shallest– SOI Clairvoyant Reader
Trish Shallest is grateful for the opportunity to walk the path of spirit. Trish has heard the song of The Great Mystery all of her life and is delighted to sing along as the words are revealed to the melody. Music is her medicine and Trish has found that creative inspiration swirls through her life when you are “In Spirit” you get inspired and things happen. Trish remembers her first few dances with the unknown, discovering her clairvoyant skills as a child. She spent precious time with her grandmother who nurtured her ability to “just know things” and her cousins, who made up her first spirit circle. Trish began to study Palmistry and developed a talent for intuitive readings. Accessing the blueprint designed before you were born and sometimes discovering undeveloped skills you can bring in to the now, that may help you to live your life to its fullest potential.
One of the amazing gifts Trish received in this life is the privilege of studying with her mentor, teacher and friend, shamanic practitioner Dariusz Rawa. His dedication to spirit, great integrity and ability to get out of the way and let spirit do it’s thing was amazing to witness. Trish is blessed to have received powerful spirit teachings, healing work and inspiration to live her dreams from studying with him. After Dariusz passed away, through my grief the gentle, wise and loving hand of spirit guided me towards the teacher of my teacher. It is certainly my privilege to now be afforded the opportunity to study with his teacher, mentor and friend Char Sundust. Trish is blown away by the powerful wind of spirit that moves through her. It is a delight to learn from this amazing Shamanic woman of power, teacher of spirit and mentor of future healers. Char is the epitome of integrity and dedication to spirit work.
Trish is grateful and honored to be a part of the Sundust Oracle Institute and for the privilege of doing the work of spirit through Intuitive Readings, Tarot, Palmistry and Aura Photography. If you feel drawn to meet with Trish for a reading, it is her pleasure for spirit to work through her to help you remember the things that you already know.

Jenica Tyler – SOI Clairvoyant Reader / Soul Retrieval Practitioner / House Blessings
I believe that we shape our universe consciously and unconsciously through our thoughts, memories and beliefs, but the truth of who/what we are is consciousness, the light of God, souls in motion.
In readings I work with my spirit allies to bring forth truth and wisdom, divine perspective on how to reveal the gold in your experiences, past and present, in order to live more fully and evolve into your highest potential/good. I often use a technique called a heartwalk, this sacred time is set aside to bring forth information about the client’s gifts and talents and treasures within their heart. In the heartwalk training with Char Sundust, I learned that everything that is born is an expression of Spirit and each soul is born with a life purpose, a dream from the Great Mystery. This life dream lives inside of our heart it is our greatest purpose, it is what we have come here to do and each person has been born into the exact body, the exact family, the exact time and place in order to have all the tools, experiences and the physical form needed to manifest their beautiful, unique and sacred dream. Other tools or trainings I may use in a reading may include: tarot, communication with ancestors, journey work, medical intuitive and dream analysis.
As a shamanic practitioner, I have found that I often work with those who have experienced physical, sexual or emotional abuse, as well as those impacted by acute and chronic illness, including addiction. The healing modality I use primarily is soul retrieval, though I may incorporate or use any combination of the following in the healing work: gourd ceremony, curse breaking, extraction, power animal retrieval, reiki, Bach flower remedies, essential oils, plant totem protection, medicine tools and song.
House blessings are similar to working with a person or animal only the healing ceremony is for the home or business and the purpose is to clear away the prior experiences and memories being held by the land and/or entities that need help crossing over and bring back any vitality or essences that have been lost. The intention is to re-sacralize the land, to honor the earth and create beautiful, harmonious relationship with her so that all can thrive.
My intention is to create the opening for Spirit to heal the body/mind/spirit and homes of my clients so that they may experience wholeness and love. I know that anything can be healed. There is no feeling or experience so dark that it cannot be healed through Spirit, through love. Willingness is the only requirement. I LOVE helping people on their path to becoming their highest selves.
I completed my training with Char Sundust in 2008 and have continued to deepen my learning as a teaching assistant for the past seven years. I have been trained as a ceremonialist, for baby blessings, naming ceremony, coming of age ceremony, weddings and end of life ceremony. I have a deep love of gardening, wild crafting, dancing, poetry, art, social justice and most of all, my wonderful son who is now taller than me! I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Health Psychology from Bastyr University and I am currently pursuing certification as a Chemical Dependency Specialist. I have been clean and sober and in recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol for a blissful 16 years.
I love helping people to witness their own beauty, to create the ceremony in order to help clients to re-member who they are, as reflections of Spirit as sacred beings with important work to do in this world, in this lifetime.
This is my life dream, to be of service through Spirit.
May your path be blessed!
