Drake Bear Stephen BA, CHT, RMT

Transpersonal Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regression Therapist

Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner, Teacher, Author & Artist

Teaching Reiki Master



PO Box 888, Clayton CA 94517

I am a Transpersonal Hypnotherapist, Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner, NLP practitioner, and a Reiki Master. I have a variety of background experiences that include a 37-year career in telecommunications and a B.A. from Antioch University in art and psychology. My introduction to shamanism began over 18 years ago with an interest in Two Spirits because I identify as pan-gendered. My preferred pronouns are the singular they, their, and them.

I specialize in past life therapy and have a private practice that focuses on energy medicine and self-empowerment. I also teach workshops on gender and sexual identity, the Afterlife, and other topics of transpersonal metaphysics. I am also a photographer, illustrator, and artist that produces my own websites and advertising materials.

I am the author and illustrator of Soul Sex: The Alchemy of Gender and Sexuality, The Chumpi Stone Guidebook, The Gender Oracle Guidebook and Card Deck (forthcoming), and Wisdom To Die For (forthcoming), as well as I am the co-author of The Chakana Oracle Guidebook and Card Deck. In addition, I am a contributor to TRANScestors: Navigating LGBTQ+ Aging, Illness, and End of Life Decisions Volume 2.

I offer the following major areas of focus in my SOUL SERIES:

SOUL SESSIONS: I use energy medicine and shamanic healing to work with clients that are interested in shifting some aspect of their life. In addition, I work with them to establish a daily spiritual practice. A client can benefit by working with me because I offer a soup to nuts, holistic approach of healing body, mind, heart, and spirit. I work with the physical body and the energetic body in the present life, past lives, and between lives. Super-sized soul sessions is a series that provides clients with a complete soul makeover. It is a comprehensive health plan for the soul.

SOUL CEREMONIES: I perform ceremonies for different occasions such as birth, death, marriage, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, and other rites of passage. I also do clearing ceremonies for homes and businesses.

SOUL SCHOOLS: I teach various subjects including Reiki and Soul School: Your Wheel to Fortune, which is a 13 session series of classes. The subjects included in my classes are Energy Medicine, Transpersonal Psychology, Shamanism, Metaphysics, Ceremonial Crafts, Indigenous Spirituality, and Metaphysical Principles.

Whether the source of a client or student’s pain is physical, emotional, or spiritual, I can provide tools of transformation that will turn their pain to peace. Any ailment has a core cause but identifying it is usually a multi-dimensional process. I assist students and clients in peeling away the layers of unhappiness and frustration to discover a core of joy and self-empowerment. I create a custom transformational solution plan (TSP) specific to each client.

"I have been working with Drake on several different occasions. There are many healers in our area but what has drawn me to Drake Bear Stephen is his profound background and studies that he has used to perfect his style of healing. He has integrated the wisdom of many different indigenous cultures and has created a blend of healing that is so powerful and compassionate. Drake gets directly to the core of the issue with such gentleness and grace. He holds no judgment which allows you to feel completely safe to go deep within. I often feel that the healing which took place went so much deeper than what appeared on the surface and I leave feeling energized and nurtured instead of feeling tired and incomplete. His work has definitely helped me process and shift with ease and encouragement. If you're experiencing any kind of issue in life, give Drake a try, you won't regret it!" -Holly Cook
