THE FOUNDER OF KARHUN TALO
Karhun Talo - The House of the Bear is a project initiated by Helena Karhu, M.Soc.Sc, BA. Helena is a shamanic teacher and practitioner, born in 1978 in Joensuu, Finland. She is a mother of 6-year old twins. Helena is an anthropologist doing her Ph.D. research on shamanism at the University of Eastern Finland. Helenas life project is Karhun Talo (House of the Bear), Center of Shamanism and Folk Healing, She has strong passion to bring forth the true essence of Koli as the shamanic power place of Finland, and the true Spirit of Koli.
Helena’s main teacher is a Peruvian shaman don Oscar Miro-Quesada, who has taught Helena advanced studies in shamanic healing arts, alchemy, and magic. Helena has deep roots in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and practice, and likes to incorporate the Tibetan practices into her Nordic heritage along with the Peruvian wisdom traditions. Helena’s passion is to bring forth the light-increasing, co-operative, and empowering aspects of the shamanic practice, where everyone can rest as they are, yet have freedom to become who they are.
