Rajinder was born in India, a culture rich in ancient traditions of Spirituality, Faith & Religions. His parents knew of his path years before he was born and it was no surprise when he started to accompany his father to Spiritual Teachers at an early age. At the age of eleven he moved to London with his uncle leaving his family in India. The years spent away from his family were not easy and after twelve years he returned to India only to find his sister very ill and his father not well either. The following year his sister passed away and a year later his father, his hero. The need to heal and answer the calling only grew stronger and in the years that followed he was back on his path trying to combine his spiritual quest with his day job.
The calling took him to spend time and learn from Master Shamans & Spiritual Teachers in India, West Africa, USA, Europe and more recently Peru which he now regards as his second spiritual home. In 2004 he moved to Cork and he started to practice energy work full time and teach meditation in it's various forms.
He believes that knowledge is a gift & a blessing that has been passed down to us and that we need to pass it on to the next generation. After years of giving introductory workshops on various aspects of Shamanism, in 2012 Rajinder started training those interested in this work. "This is hard work" he explains "as first the Student needs to learn about him/herself, learn the stories, the wounds that live within them and heal them and not everyone is ready to heal the past. Clarity to help others can only come when you heal the traumas within yourself and for a Shaman this is an essential part of training. The very basic work can take years for some people to get to grips with let alone master."
Although lighthearted at the best of times Rajinder is serious about his work as a practitioner and as a teacher.
"I come from a culture where a Teachers name will open doors for a student and this is because the Teachers only take on students that are dedicated and are serious about the path. I'd like to think that I too carry that tradition and the people training with me know that I'm serious. When a student is ready I will know and they will know. This knowing comes from experience not certificates of attendance."

Great Shaman Master Healers from the Andean mountains to the plains of the Kalahari, treat diseases through our “Luminous Energy Field”, the template of light that determines how the body heals, lives and how it may die.
Every emotional, physical and spiritual trauma is etched on this luminous energy field. It holds the imprints of disease long before it manifests in the physical body.
Every living thing owes its being ness to light, plants, animals and human beings. Failure to understand this luminous light separates us from experiencing and seeing the spirit in us and as it runs through the earth's grid.
These ancient, powerful methods of changing the luminous energy fields, heal the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Healing the light body through the illumination process scours clean the blueprints of disease, addictions, negative feelings and habits which change into positive wholeness. Life becomes resoundingly vibrant.
Shamanic healing is about energy, and typically the shamanic practitioner sees lack of health and well being on any level as being about loss of energy in some form. Trauma, stress, abuse or even a serious accident at any time in one's life, can result in loss of vital life force, vital energy or essence which is known as 'Soul Loss'.
Sometimes in order to survive seriously challenging situations, a soul part leaves the individual and takes refuge in one of the other worlds, taking with it some of this vital life force.
It does this to assist overall survival. However, it often results in depression, apathy, inability to move on after a loss or death or problems with the immune system. It is the job of the shamanic healer to track down this Soul part in the other worlds, to offer it healing and reassurance and to invite it to return and bring back its positive qualities.
This is known as 'Soul Retrieval'. Once the Soul parts are returned, life takes on a new brightness and can be lived with more optimism and delight.
There are a number of symptoms of Soul Loss, for example, when people feel that they are observing life as an outsider, rather than engaging and being fully involved. Other common symptoms are when people feel 'spaced out' a lot of the time, not really here.
Other symptoms that indicate possible Soul Loss are life-themes such as a pervasive fear, inability to trust people. Chronic illness may also be a symptom of Soul Loss.
This directly relates to Power. In the shamanic worldview, power and maintaining health go hand in hand, if the body is power-full, there is no room for illness or disease.
This is a process in which energies that have imbeded themselves in our bodies are extracted. There are two types, Crystalised energies and Fluid energies.
These can be caused by anger, envy or hatred directed at us by another person. People who are the closest to us make us most vulnerable to their betrayal, anger and jealousy and negative thoughts from them can penetrate our Luminous body like a dagger. Although our system can protect it self, constant barrage of negativity can penetrate our defenses and become crystalised and embed themselves in our physical body and over time harden. They can also be energetic remnants-memories of how we died, how we were hurt or killed in a former life. I have tracked and removed crystalised energies many times in clients that show physical symptoms of pain that cannot be otherwise explained.
Fluid Energies or Entities
Intrusive entities are disincarnate spirits trapped between this world and the next. When a person is spiritually open and/or out of balance they can become an easy target and a place of refuge for these energies. They attach themselves to a chakra and enter into a parasitic relationship with the host. They can produce anxiety, depression, mood swings, addictions, changes in behaviour and host of other symptoms.
An intrusive entity may appear as one of two types; one of our former selves (awakened from our subconscience) or a disincarnate being. This can even be a loved one coming to us for assistance after dying unconsciencly (in an accident or under heavy medication) and not aware they have died. We take them into the safety of our Luminous Energy field unaware that when their energy mixes with ours it will start to wreak havoc and may even exhibit the same physical and emotional symptoms they suffered before they died.
Once extracted they are guided through ritual & ceremony back to the spirit world and client can experience tremendous healing.
One of the most important roles of a Shaman is to assist someone who has passed on to the Spirit World. Unknowingly many homes & work places are often built on sites where tragic events took place or on old burial sites. The presence of spirits from these events which have not passed on to the Spirit World can be felt.
This can be perceived in a number of ways; The feeling that someone is always there watching you. A stale smell which no amount of airing or fragrance seems to shift. Heaviness, which can be felt when one enters the building. The building may feel dark and colourless. Changes in behaviour when in the building.
Some would even see & hear them. Even though they may be friendly and don't mean us any harm, or may even be a loved one, nonetheless they are STUCK. Helping them not only brings great healing for them but also for us. Our home or workplace feels lighter, more colourful, vibrant and peaceful.
In this process a place is cleared through ritual and ceremony. Spirits go through a healing illumination process and are assisted to the light.
"Three years ago and quite by chance, I attended a meditation class in Cork city. Like most people, I didn’t really know what to expect. The word Shaman was not new to me but being in class with one was. I liked the welcoming and respectful nature of Rajinder Singh and my experience led me attend more classes, one to one season and a workshop.
I could see the difference it was making in how I felt and perceived the world around me and it began to enhance my life. It opened my eyes to the role of a Shaman and what it means to be one.
Rajinder is always open to sharing his own journey and his twenty years of experience to bring a practical and tangible understanding of Shamanic practices, ceremonies and rituals in everyday life to a modern world. Feeling safe in his presence is easy, he’s always in tune and ready to help. Last year, I travelled to Peru with his group and it was refreshing to see how the Q’ero Elders from the Andes and a Master Shaman in the Amazon held him and his work in high regard.
His vision of training others to do the same inspires me. The kindness, compassion, and guidance he shares with all that come to see him leads me to believe that he’s right when he says ” Soon every community will have a Shaman/Elder, like the old days ”
As a practitioner I feel very happy to refer clients on to rajinder not only for meditation but also for one to one sessions and workshops. In meditation he shares aspects of his own life with the group which makes him feel very ordinary but the tools which he uses to navigate life’s ups and downs are very interesting and as I believe we all experience similar situations on life’s journey what rajinder shares can be used immediately in every day life. His meditations are very insightful and “bring up” a lot of suppressed emotion in everyone there, he seems to have a 6 th sense and knows exactly when to come to you and help you with whatever you are going through. In more difficult situations a private consultation with him if fantastic shifting energy from their very core which hold us back every day. Rajinder is kind and respectful of everyone who comes his way and is always there to help in any situation. I always feel very “safe” in his presence he allows you to be you without judgement…(2014)
My first introduction to shamanic workshops came about as a result of seeing a poster in Spar on Shandon St, advertising a shamanic workshop called “Death and Dying”. As I looked at the poster I knew I needed to attend. When I contacted Rajinder to book a place, he told me that he never advertised in Spar on Shandon St before, however as he was passing something told him to go in and place a poster there. This sums up Shamanic healing for me. When I put out a need or a request, somehow the Universe conspires to offer me guidance, direction and support.
I have attended many workshops, meditation evenings and private shamanic sessions with Rajinder. Generally, I go to him when I am stuck in my life, whether through an old pattern or issue re-emerging or when I am out of touch with myself. Rajinder always gets to the root of my problem, with his array of tools, wisdom and experience I get what I need to continue on my path. A session with him is more than perhaps ten sessions of counselling. I find the energy supportive, calming, releasing and strong,. I feel more whole, lighter, freer and almost more in love with myself after a session. And when I love within myself, I love all outside of myself.
Rajinder as a shaman is authentic, challenging, supportive, fair and intuitive. He doesn’t sugar coat rather he guides in a firm way. I find his energy very clean and contained, which helps me to trust the process and that he can handle the energy session, so I feel safe to relax and let go. He believes in people and their ability to heal and resolve from the inside out, he gives his all and he does it with his own cheeky charm, his generous heart and his joie de vivre. Rajinder, you are a blessing, thank you for all you have done for me, as I manoeuvre along this path of life.
