Geryll “Dr. G. Love” Robinson is a Doctor of Naprapathy, Shamanic Practitioner, Teacher, Diviner, Poet, Reiki Master, co-creative artist, and Goddess at Large. Dr. G. Love is also a Black Prizmatic spiritual and political activist for Human and Planetary Rights. Dr. G. Love’s work is about Balance. Truth. Reconciliation. Evolution. Re-membering who we are.
During a ritual early in the year 2000, Dr. G. Love received a message from the Ancestors about her future work as a healer, and Earth Steward. The work would entail traveling to different energetically charged locations on the planet, spending time with the landscapes, and holding space for healing ritual and/or altars of offerings as part of a larger scale multi-dimensional global healing project. At the time Dr. G. was living as a writer, performer, reveler, and lay practitioner of elemental and Orisha spirit work. The path of her life immediately shifted into one of expansive personal healing and discovery that led to an uncovering and awakening to a deeper vision of her life’s purpose. She began her studies in Natural Medicine (Naprapathy) and apprenticeships in Reiki and Cross Cultural Indigenous Technologies in earnest. After 16 years of study, apprenticeships, travel, ritual, a few hurricanes, flood, drought, gunfire, intensive multidimensional work with thousands of patients in her private practice, and hundreds of apprentices through individual and group classes taught in New Orleans, Chicago, Tampa, FL, Vermont, New York, California, coastal Ecuador, international webinars on the World Wide Web, and more, Dr. G. Love is excited to be leading SoulShifting Retreats for the global conscious evolutionary.
The work that moves through Dr. G. Love is an ever expanding tapestry of syncretic healing work, indigenous technologies, community spirit, personal insight, storytelling, humor, art, beauty, mysticism, and activism to be shared and utilized as a doorway, anchor, and guide for our journey as a new paradigm generation of visionary awakening souls.
Dr. G. Love has an online and in-person private practice through Five Directions Wellness since 2003. She is a co-grounder for Sojourners Land QPOC eco-spirititual land movement in rural Tennessee and is proud to be co-stewarding forest, fresh waters, and field as part of our Sojourners Land sanctuary with the brilliant visionary land steward, Valencia Wombone. Her work has incarnated in such forms as The Black Witch Chronicles Video series, Legacy Reiki Attunements, Shamanic workshops in earth honoring traditions including The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, teaching artist creations on anti-violence, sexuality awareness, and energy work, Installation ritual art (Earth Works), fabulous new-paradigm photo and video projects, and stageplays.
