Dr. Natalie Trent, PhD is a neuroscientist and shamanic energy healer, working to integrate the scientific and the mystical. As a scientist, Natalie studies the power of mind-body medicine and spirituality for wellness, healing, and prevention of illness and disease. Natalie has received media attention for her work, and has been interviewed by The Dr. Denise show, Collective Evolution, Michel Pascal, and Juliana Klinkert, and her research has been featured in the New York Times. She appears in the recent documentaries Expanding Reality and Titanic: Premonitions. Natalie is the author of many scientific publications and two forthcoming books from award-winning publishers Param Media: Expanding Science: Visions of a Post-Materialist Paradigm and Infinite Perception: The Power of Psychedelics for Global Transformation. Natalie has presented her research and given talks to diverse audiences throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.
As a research scientist with Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and Harvard Medical School, Natalie investigates yoga and mindfulness as practices for improving psychological health and wellbeing with Kripalu’s RISE program. With the Center for Reiki Research, Natalie studies the benefits of Reiki on physical and psychological health, and educates Reiki practitioners and the public about current and past research. She also conducts research on Universal Love, unconditional love for all of existence, and is the creator of the Universal Love Scale, a psychometrically validated measurement for the embodiment and experience of universal love. Her other research includes the transcendent effects of psychedelics, herbal medicine, and the nocebo effect. Together with over 300 other scientists and physicians, Natalie was the first signee of the Manifesto for a Postmaterialist Science, a declaration for science to move beyond the outdated materialist paradigm.
Natalie is also a shamanic energy healer with an international teaching and healing practice. Her technique is a blend of Usui Reiki and North American and European shamanism, forms of energy medicine that work synergistically. Through embodying universal love and pure presence, Natalie works with universal life force energy for the highest good of her clients. Natalie also teaches Reiki and Shamanic Energy Medicine classes in person and online, and facilitates weekly talks and workshops on energy medicine and spirituality at Grail Springs in beautiful Bancroft Ontario.
Many people seek a session with Natalie because they feel stuck and are looking to create a significant change in their life, or because they want a deeper understanding and healing of a disease or condition, or they are looking for spiritual renewal and a vision forward. She is an empath or clairsentient, and by connecting with the one mind, also experiences claircognizance, clairvoyance, clairaudience, and divination when facilitating a session. She uses these natural abilities and the science of mind-body medicine to reveal and identify what the individual needs in order to align with their truest self, guiding them toward self-mastery and spiritual fulfillment.
