Durango is a sort of hot bed for psychics, energy healers, holistic medicine and yoga devotees. It could be because we’re in a remote corner of the state, far from any major cities, with only the wilderness for company. This can free people up to engage with nature and spiritual exploits. “There’s healers on every corner here now!” said local psychic Whitney Lamb.
All three Durango psychics we spoke with (Lamb, Beverly Anderson and Amanda Fresh) agreed this town is a magical, powerful place that’s conducive to their kind of work. Anderson says it’s holy ground, placed in between four sacred mountains, and that “very clean, restorative, nurturing, feminine energy” comes out of the mountains, all the way from Silverton to Pagosa Springs. Lamb agrees that a higher vibration and energy flows through this valley in particular, especially with all the sacred monuments like Chimney Rock around. “When I’m hiking up Junction Creek, I’ll have Native Americans come around and walk with me all the time, just in spirit,” said Lamb, who is also a medium.
