About Richard's Shamanic Journey:

What’s your strongest animal totem and what significance does it have?  This is your chance to connect with the animal guides that are there to help see you through, providing wisdom and answers that were just out of reach. We will gather in a sacred space with mats and pillows available for everyone to find a comfortable position. What's the question that you're afraid to ask anyone else? Is there a puzzle from your past that still has missing pieces? Be prepared, and we will begin when everyone has settled in.


Richard will play his medicine drum, which has traveled the world and a good portion of the United States, for approximately one hour. This is to keep the energy moving and to give everyone a starting and finish line… it also reminds everyone that Richard will be standing guard. When you fall into an altered state to the point where you disconnect from your physical form, you will be directed as to how to find your way to the Spirit World and, once there, you will have instruction as to how to identify your animal spirit totem.


Richard says, "This was a very powerful and healing moment for me when I first started journeying. I found over the years that I have many animal totems and they all had special meaning at the time that they came to me.  What will come to you? And when it does, will it Run, Swim, Burrow, Crawl, Climb, or Fly?"


A limited number of floor cushions are available; you may wish to bring your own blanket and pillow, and consider bringing an eye covering (like a bandana or sleep mask) and even ear plugs. It's recommended to bring a journal or paper and pen to record your experience after the journey ends, while you remember the details.

Masks are optional but people are likely to be seated close to one another, so you may wish to wear one for that reason.

ABOUT Lightworker / Medium / Healer Rev. Richard Malz, RMT

Rev. Richard Malz, RMT has been a Certified Usui Reiki Master for over 20 years. Reiki is a spiritually guided life force energy that helps facilitate the body’s own healing powers to work more efficiently. It helps enable healing and balancing energy physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Richard has had excellent and consistent results working on various ailments, especially joint, muscle, and ligament pain (he's especially awesome with knees). Richard doesn't  use the traditional methods, but rather those he has developed himself, where he "blasts" the Reiki energy so it is much more powerful and effective. Don’t worry, it’s still usually a gentle technique!

More than any other gifts, Richard has been channeling from Spirit the longest. He has been giving messages to people since childhood. He did not know where the wisdom came from but, as he got older and learned about communication with Spirit, it became clear.

Richard was ordained as a minister in the Congregation of Spiritual Alternatives in 2001.

Richard lets himself be guided by Spirit to do what best serves a client's needs at the time. While Reiki and channeling are usually his two main tools, he has extensively studied and learned various other modalities and incorporate them as needed and as Spirit directs him. These primarily include Rhythm Therapy, Integrated Energy Therapy (IET), Psychic Surgery, and Shamanic Journeying. Sometimes, Spirit even guides Richard in how to use techniques that are completely new to him.

Richard says, "I love what I do and am grateful every day to be able to help others so profoundly. The thing I love most about my work is that it always has an element of something new, so I feel I am continuously learning and growing along with my clients."

for Rev. Richard Malz, RMT

"I was in such pain that I couldn’t step over the tub to take a shower. I met Richard Malz at a fair in Allentown, PA. He offered me a Reiki session and totally blew me away.  I have had Reiki from many people, but nothing like this. After the session, my pain was gone, I could walk without my cane and, after 5 days, the pain is there a little but not like it was."

—Minda Hart, Earth Wisdom, Ann Arbor


"I really need to thank you. I don’t know what it was that you did. But I’ve never felt this way before. I have such a good attitude since sitting with you. My whole outlook has been different. You did for me what medication can’t do. And for that I am grateful. Very grateful. This is how I’ve been wanting to feel. So thank you. Very much! If I start losing it, I’ll be coming back to see you again. " 

— Very appreciative, Paula 

"Richard is a true shaman and in it for the right reasons, which is important to discern in this day and age! His heart is big, protective and generous. Some of the best healing work that I have ever personally had done [I recieved from him], and I have been in this field for over 15 years. He also came to our center in Pittsburgh and led a great shamanic journey that was well received and attended. I recommend him wholeheartedly."

— Much love, Victoria Zaitz

"Richard helped me and supported me throughout a transformational period in my life. I can honestly say that without his readings years ago, I would not be in the position I am today. He also was very kind to work with me financially, as I was a college student at the time. He is not afraid to tell you your own truth, since that is what we need to hear most! I highly recommend getting a reading by Richard."

— Jaz

"I’ve had multiple sessions with Richard. Being someone who suffers from a multitude of issues from physical to mental illness, I had all but given up hope. A close friend dragged me to a place where Richard had a table set up and a short explanation of his work. As we walked around, I repeatedly found myself drawn back to his table. 

"I suffer from fibromyalgia, PTSD, and intense anxiety, just to name a few. I’m not usually someone to let my walls down easily, or at all for that matter. However, this time it was different. When he looked at me it was as if he’d seen my soul and the first thing he did was apologize for the hell I'd been put through and reminded me I didn’t deserve any of it. I found myself sitting in a public space just bawling. I didn’t care — in that moment, no one, nothing else existed.


"The sessions I had with him helped me to process some things that 13 years of therapy couldn’t do. He allowed me to feel safe, and heard as well as understood. He reminded me I wasn’t alone in this world and that I had those on the Other Side fighting for me as well. The work he does is powerful — you just need to be ready to hear it, good and bad."

— Joann R.

"Richard Malz is an outstanding reader / healer. I met Richard about ten years ago and had a number of sessions with him. He also helped my daughter get through a few rough spots in her teenage years! Richard will feel/see/sense what is carried in your soul, then compassionately heal your wounds. If you have an opportunity to sit with Richard, do not pass on it. You will not regret your experience."

— Brian B. 

"I came from a family who didn’t believe in readings, Reiki, or anything from the holistic community.  One day I went to a local show and fell in love with the holistic community.  I too was a skeptic when it came to a reading, but I thought what the heck. I won’t give out any information and see what they can figure out. I noticed Richard and thought I would give it a try. At the time, I didn’t know this would start a 10+ year biannual meeting with Richard. 


"Richard is very open and honest and calls it like it is. I appreciate his brutal honesty. At the end of the session he will ask if he can give you a hug, and you will get the most amazing bear hug that will make you feel loved and validated. Today I call my meetings with Richard my 'tune-up'.


"Richard has given me advice to help me through some personal issues. I never thought I would overcome those issues and today I am a much stronger person. Richard is actually proud of what I have accomplished!


"Richard will ask for permission to talk with you about family members close to you. He knew the girl my son was dating was not the right girl for him. I disagreed, because at the time they were madly in love. Later, she broke his heart.


"Richard is an amazing person and a true healer.  If you have the opportunity to see Richard, I would highly recommend it.  He will help you change your life!"

— Linda C.

"Several years ago, I met Rev. Richard Malz at a holistic festival. I was drawn to have a reading with him even though I didn’t think it was 'my kind of thing' at the time. My sister was so taken with the reading I had with Richard that she decided to have him over to do another one for her and I. He traveled quite a long way to come work with us. We still talk about some of the things he said that day; like how he told us that she was afraid to fly and I was afraid to land. Much of the wisdom he shared in our brief encounters has played into our lives and our growth over the years and still lives in our memories." 

— Crystal M.
