Fatua Smith

Medicine Woman at Novalis and Sage & Spirit Medicine

Fatua joined Novalis in 2018 during her own healing journey in Peru and found a sense of belonging and purpose.

She's passionate about shamanic healing and plant medicine, studying with maestros from various indigenous groups in Peru, including Shipibo, Matses, and Qero' peoples.

Fatua serves as the resident kambo frog medicine facilitator, learning from the Matses lineage in the Amazon and teachers in the USA. She's also an energy medicine practitioner, having graduated from the Four Winds School of Energy Medicine & Healing. Fatua is a sound healer, musician, and spirit medium, channeling melodies and working with ancestors. She's skilled in playing the ukulele and African drumming.

In 2019, she founded Soul Melody Cacao, supporting indigenous women and cacao farmers in Peru and Mayan farmers in Guatemala.
