About Cheryl Winegar
Shamanic Practitioner
Reiki Master Teacher

Karuna® Reiki Master Teacher

Cheryl Winegar is the proprietor of Windhorse Healing Arts. She is a third generation Oregonian, born in Eastern Oregon. She has lived most of her life in the Portland area.

Cheryl earned her massage therapy degree in 1989 from The Oregon School of Massage. After passing the OBMT written and practical exams and earning her license, she entered into the massage trade, eventually founding Windhorse Healing Arts. In order to expand her massage techniques, she studied a variety of massage modalities from several different teachers.

Exploring energy work led Cheryl to Reiki. She was initiated as a Reiki Practitioner in 1991 by Phil Morgan. In 1995, Peter Wolfe initiated her as a Reiki Master. Wanting to further expand the range of her skills, Cheryl then studied with Reiki Master William Rand, completing her second Reiki Mastership. Feeling the need to expand her "tool kit", in 2014 Cheryl studied Karuna® Reiki with Reiki Master Collen Benelli.

Feeling the need to address client spiritual issues from a new perspective, in 2005 Cheryl completed a Shamanic Apprenticeship Training Program taught by Lenore Norrgard.  From there, Cheryl furthered her knowledge of shamanic training by studying Soul Retrieval with Sandra Ingerman.

Cheryl Winegar began her practice in Portland in 1989. Her current office is located in Lincoln City.
