What is Folk Healing and what is a Spiritual Awakening?

In the past, the term “folk” was tied to medical and healing practices that were not accepted by the dominant religious institutions. Although society and religion have become less strict, modern folk healers continue to utilize ancient wisdom, herbal remedies, and spiritual practices to promote healing of the mind, body, and soul.

At Folk Healing, we work together to do just that. We heal the mind, body and soul. When life feels off, if you have been looking for real meaning, or know that you have much more to offer this world, this is your soul waking you up! We call this a spiritual awakening. Folk Healing is a safe place to dive beneath the surface and into the root causes of your emotions. We will reveal solutions that bring a sense of purpose and lasting peace. All healing comes from within, and I will teach you how to heal your inner self and navigate your pathway so you can step into shining your light in the world.

Spiritual Awakening path

A Spiritual Awakening is a unique, deeply personal and profound experience that is life-changing. It often begins with questioning everything you thought you knew about life, feeling stuck in the “Matrix,” or realizing that the person you have been doesn’t reflect who you really are. Awakening on a spiritual level is becoming conscious of ALL THAT IS. If your current beliefs no longer resonate with you and you feel that there is more to this life than what you’ve considered, if you feel you haven’t tapped into your full potential and are looking for more, then you could be experiencing a spiritual awakening.

A Spiritual Awakening Guide provides a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings. With fresh perspectives and new avenues to explore, your guide will help you gain a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings, and experiences while also addressing your physical symptoms to help you heal. A guide will walk with you on your path as long as necessary until you find your way again. However, a Spiritual Awakening Guide is not a licensed therapist or medical professional. They do not diagnose, treat, or prescribe. Their role is to offer guidance and support on your spiritual journey.

Have you ever wondered

Is this all there is?

What is the point of… Everything?

Am I meant for something more?

Who am I?

What is my purpose?

Why… So many WHY’S?

Spiritual Healing

If you feel like you have just woken up, if everything you thought you knew doesn’t make a whole lot of sense anymore, if life doesn’t have the same meaning it once had, if you feel lost and confused then know you are not alone anymore. I’ve been where you are and can help you navigate this space to find your footing once again.

I am here for all of it! There is nothing that can’t be brought up, nothing that can’t be sorted out. If you have spiritual questions and experiences you want to talk about, then I’m your girl! You don’t have to do this alone. I am here to walk beside you and offer direction as you navigate your path until you are ready to continue on your own.

As your Spiritual Awakening Guide, I will help you identify the symptoms you are experiencing and the deeper learnings and healings that need to happen to become the person you were meant to be. We will do some deep dives into your current beliefs and see what is working for you and what may be limiting your growth. When working with me you will receive personalized guidance on spiritual practices, physical practices and herbal remedies that will help you heal your mind, body and soul. I work from my heart and will teach you how to do the same to create a more fulfilled, rewarding, and soulful life.

I can’t say enough good things about Folk Healing! This has been an incredibly healing and powerful experience for me. I believe all of this was possible purely through the safe space, knowledge, and wisdom Livi creates and brings to each session. Livi has a beautiful way of combining spiritual practices into logical and practical perspectives. It’s been the perfect balance for me as someone who craves logic and spirituality. I highly recommend Folk Healing if you’re looking for someone to be by your side in your healing that can bring a wide variety of approaches to your work together. It’s clear that Livi sees each person as an individual capable of their own healing and that she will happily be by your side to help facilitate that growth.

Livi is a very sweet, kind, caring, compassionate friend of mine which I am so truly blessed to have in my life!!! She has always been here for me offering words of encouragement and looking at situations in a positive way. She is a huge ray of sunshine and then some with much wisdom and inspiration!!!

Friendship comes when you least expect it. I can honestly say Livi Folk is a dear friend. I’ve always been drawn to very intelligent people and Livi is no exception. But along with her intelligence comes a sense of acceptance. I could honestly tell her my deepest, darkest feelings, and she comes back with kindness and understanding. She always seems to have an answer to my questions. An answer that comes with knowledge, and consideration of where I am in my life, my beliefs, and my abilities. She has given me ways to look at a problem I may be having. Always centered with kindness. I’m writing this out of true admiration for an incredible, intelligent, caring friend.

Livi is one of the kindest, smartest, most down to earth people I know. She has wonderful advice no matter what the situation. She feeds my mind with endless thought and always inspires me to be a better person. Her thoughts are pure and always positive. I look up to her in so many ways and hope to be as confident and kind as she is. She has helped me in so many ways in the past 10 years. I have so much love and respect for Livi.


Is a Spiritual Awakening a midlife crisis?

It can feel like one! A spiritual awakening can turn your world upside down. You may begin thinking and feeling things that leave you dissatisfied with life, similar to a midlife or existential crisis. However, it is also possible you are questioning nothing and life feels good, but you are simply awakening to new possibilities and curiosities felt on a soul level that you want to explore. We can do this too.

The entire reason I founded Folk Healing was to help minimize the loneliness, confusion, and loss of direction others may experience as I did with my awakening. A guide is there to do all this in a safe space as well provide clarity, hold your hand, offer direction, and provide responses to all the questions that will come up. A guide is your biggest cheerleader to celebrate and facilitate your soul’s growth.

What Herbal remedies are we talking about?

Herbs are incredible, serving as nature’s own medicine cabinet. Herbal remedies are supplements and can address a range of concerns like anxiety, insomnia, allergies, hormonal balance, energy levels, and common ailments. Discussions about suggested herbs are personalized to suit your unique lifestyle and goals. Typically safe for consumption, some herbal supplements may interact with your current medications. *It is always recommended to consult your medical doctor before starting a supplement regimen.*

This is a loaded question. Religion follows a set of teachings and institutionalized beliefs in relation to God or a higher being, where spirituality is a more personal, soul-based approach to connecting with something bigger than yourself. The two are not mutually exclusive. Many people are both spiritual and religious, but it is wise to distinguish between the two.

Can you help with weight loss, gender Exploration, behavioral issues, learning disabilities, and/or other clinical diagnosis?

There are situations that fall outside the scope of a spiritual awakening, This is why we always start with a 20-30 minute phone Q & A session to see if we are a good fit.

Physical practices can be anything from a short walk to dancing to simple breathing exercises while seated. This isn’t bootcamp! We incorporate what feels right for the current situation and your needs.

I am located in Ogden, Utah, where in person sessions are held. Zoom sessions are also available for those beyond driving distance.

Credit Cards,, Zelle, ACH transfers, Venmo, Cash, and Barter/Trade are acceptable forms of payment. If you are being called to what I offer but feel financial constraints, please reach out, let’s chat. We can make this work!
