Rob & Yana Kippel started facilitating spiritual ceremonies together as a couple in March 2020. They each bring their life and ceremonial experiences together to co-create a balanced feminine and masculine space that supports participants to do deep inner personal work. They have participated in and/or facilitated a combined 250+ ceremonies. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, they have attended 20+ different medicine circles in many different indigenous ancestral lineages as well as more modern modalities. Their ceremonial work is complemented by broad based learning in spirituality, religions, and practices around the world from ancient to modern times. They are both currently enrolled in OneSpirit seminary to become Interfaith Ministers.
Yana was born in Ukraine and in adult life went on to receive a Bachelor’s degree in linguistics and interpretation in Kyiv, Ukraine. She received her MBA in Istanbul, Turkey and her Adult Learning Educator’s Program diploma in Geneva, Switzerland. Yana worked as a professional interpreter to national governments and as a consultant to large corporations all over the world. She has lived long term in 3 different countries and has travelled to over 35.
Once she started walking her conscious spiritual path, her prior career no longer spoke to her. She left it and began a period of rapid self-discovery and growth which brought her to many teachings and practices from all over the world. She received her Life Coach diploma in 2009 and later travelled to Nepal and Thailand where she studied Buddhism and completed her Yoga teacher training. She has apprenticed with shamans in Ecuador, Columbia and Mexico, and is currently in apprenticeship under a Brazilian tradition. In 2018 she created her company “Shamindfully” helping others on a spiritual and practical level to heal traumas, find themselves, their life mission, and live a happy, fulfilling, and balanced life. Currently she studies and apprentices in Jyotish, Vedic astrology in Sanathana Dharma tradition.
Rob was born in New York and enjoyed a childhood being fascinated by nature. He was very active in athletics growing up and was a competitive olympic weightlifter for 7 years. In his young adult life he went to college to start his dual careers as a Paramedic and Registered Nurse. Rob had a 15 year career in healthcare working in the emergency medicine and critical care fields. During this time he was an active real estate investor and also built, operated, and sold a franchised business. After a spiritual awakening, Rob radically changed his life and left his career in healthcare to build a mushroom farm and open the spiritual awakening center which is now New Earth Space that he and Yana operate together. Rob is a musician and is currently studying the use of sound and vibration for healing and self-actualization.
Yana and Rob now dedicate their life together as a husband and wife team to serve mother earth, humanity, and God, as well as helping others awaken to their own spiritual paths.
