  • Learn how to tap into your inherent intuitive abilities to heal yourself from the inside out.
  • Develop your creative practice to deepen your artistic expression

  • Identify your positive and negative sides (shadow aspects) and learn how to navigate their influence (shadow work) so you can pinpoint past triggers and stop projecting your issues onto others. You will find that interpersonal conflicts begin to dissipate in your life.
  • Find your calm center from which to make important decisions, so you can live your life with certainty and confidence
  • Release deep wounds and deal with the energetic blockages that keep you from living your best life.  You’ll begin to feel lighter and more empowered.

Butterfly Bootcamp is a 6 month online transformational shamanic energy medicine training program for cultivating holistic well-being and developing your creative potential so you can achieve deep inner peace, have the energy to pursue your passions, be a healer in your community, and turn your dreams into reality.


  • Intrigued by how energy medicine works?
  • Looking to deepen your already existing practice of meditation, reiki, or other healing practice?
  • Seeking deep healing techniques you can use on yourself and others?
  • Fed up with pharma being the “go-to” of Western medicine?
  • Dreaming of a better life but can’t seem to get going on it?
  • Craving meaningful transformation?

I get it. I have been there, feeling like there was something more than the official structures were offering me and not knowing how to achieve the life I dreamed about.  At first I thought I wasn't capable of these techniques, techniques that seemed like magic when others would use them on me. 


Well, here's the thing.  They are magic.  And we all have the capacity to develop these latent gifts and talents.  I'm here to help you uncover what your hidden talents are for deep healing and creative transformation.




I’d like you to imagine what will be possible when you:

  • Are no longer triggered by other people’s negative thought patterns so you can step into your own confidence and power
  • Wake up every day with gratitude in your heart so you can cultivate the abundance that accompanies gratitude
  • Reclaim your creative spirit so you can be a life-affirming force of nature
  • Reignite the spark for your passions so you can stop putting your dreams off until tomorrow 

You would be unstoppable, wouldn’t you? You could spread your wings and fly!


I created Butterfly Bootcamp for those who are ready to go on their own healing journey and need to see a path forward. When you join me in this program, you’ll have something I didn’t have, but needed: a guide! And I will be more than a guide, I will be your energy medicine practitioner - with you every step of the way, giving you the support you need to transform!




It all begins with my mantra, which will become your mantra:

“I have the power to advocate for my own well-being.”

Meet your guide

Your friendly neighborhood shaman!


Hi! I'm Laurelann Porter, and after 20 years of teaching in a variety of settings, I found that the most meaningful experiences came from exchanges outside of the formal classroom. When the pandemic hit in 2020, I had a mental and physical health crisis. I began to ask myself what I was teaching and why?

I felt as if the structures in which I was working were asking me to be little more than a language cop. I decided I am not interested in policing people’s language. I was grateful for the tools I had developed in my academic career, but I knew that I was meant for something different. 

I realized that my favorite part of teaching was advising students and having the conversations with them about where they wanted to go in life. My new passion is using the skills I learned as a teacher to help people heal and transform. 


  • 20+ years of teaching experience, both online and in-person, to business people, teenagers, and university students
  • 20+ years of tarot reading for intuitive guidance
  • Doctoral research in critical autoethnography
  • Training in Energy Medicine from the Four Winds Society
  • Training in Dream Tending from the Pacifica Graduate Institute
  • Training in Integral Deep Listening with Joseph Dillard
  • An academic research profile specializing in Afro-Brazillian performance epistemologies (understanding how the sacred practices of rhythm and dance contribute to cultural and embodied knowledge) 
  • My deep commitment to helping others decolonize their minds
  • Living, breathing proof that you can take charge of your life and start living it on your own terms


I had the courage to quit my comfortable full-time job as a professor at a university and sell my car to pay for training to become an energy medicine practitioner because I knew I had to take radical action to prioritize my well-being. Now I want to help you take your courageous leap. 



Frequently Asked Questions

I’m new to this work, will this be too intense for me?  

The good news is shamanic energy medicine is a consent-based practice. I consult Spirit to find out what you need for your highest good today. If at any time, you have a hesitation, it is good to express what you are feeling so that we can work through any doubts. For deep healing to occur, you will likely face discomfort and pain. As you move through these processes, painful memories can be alchemized into lessons and gifts.


I’ve been doing reiki/yoga/meditation/mindfulness practices for a long time, will this be too basic for me? 

The beauty of this work is that I get to meet you where you are. I have been told that my energy is very powerful and I have found that those who already have a sensitivity to the flow of energy often receive the most profound and immediate results. Essentially, I can be a healer for healers. 



What will the time commitment be on a weekly basis?  

Each week there will be online lessons which will take 1-3 hours per week to view. The weekly group call will be limited to 90 minutes with an additional 30 minutes for Q&A. Shamanic healing sessions will will last 60 to 90 minutes per session. Additional homework will likely occupy 1-2 hours (outside of class). 

The integration of the healing takes time and this work should not be done too quickly. You may find that in the week after a session, you experience epiphanies, emotional releases and other insights about how to embrace your newer, healthier perspective, and you will want to be journaling and otherwise being very aware - but still, this program can be completed with no more than 10 hours weekly.  


Do I have to become a vegetarian for this to work?


Not necessarily. A major component of Butterfly Bootcamp is the Nutritional Reboot. The foundation for this reboot is the guiding principle of “right relationship with the natural world” - for many people, this does mean giving up meat. What we do in this program is to take on a process of finding out how our bodies react to different foods we consume. 

You will be invited to spend 6 weeks without the most common food allergens in order to cleanse your body, so that you can then reintroduce foods of your choice with a mindful awareness of how your body responds to the fuel you are providing. Each person will discover what foods work for them, in my experience the worst substances are sugar, wheat products, and dairy. For others, the worst offenders might be meat, coffee, or alcohol. The most important thing is to eat high quality, organic, locally produced, plant-based foods.



What can energy medicine do for me?  

Energy medicine can help you identify and release blockages (emotional and/or energetic). Energy medicine can help you achieve mental clarity and with that mental clarity comes greater inner peace. Energy medicine can help you identify and focus on your life purpose and help you to create the conditions in which well-being can occur. It can give you the energetic support for making healthy changes in your life.  

What can energy medicine not do for me?

Energy medicine is not a magic pill, it does not cure disease, it can however address the core woundings that often result in unwellness. The work of healing is not something I do for you, it is something you do for yourself. What I offer is energetic support and the amplification of your intentions. Energy medicine can not help you if you are not willing to face uncomfortable truths about your past, your perspective, and your beliefs. 


What if I don’t remember my dreams, can I still participate in the program? 

Yes, absolutely. There are ways to cultivate your relationship to your dreams. There are other ways to tap into the wisdom of your psyche. I use a combination of strategies from dream tending, integral deep listening, creative writing prompts, and visual journaling to help you recognize and integrate messages from your higher self.
