About the Book

art by Willow Arlenea


We are living on a planet in crisis. Never before in recorded history have so many people walked the surface of Earth, and never before has the human species achieved the power to destroy life on such a scale as we have reached today. As more and more people awaken to the cocreative power we share with one another and with Spirit, the potential to become active participants in determining the future of our world grows with the overall population. The potency of our thoughts, intentions, and actions exponentially increases as people in growing numbers consciously combine forces—we can now redirect and reinvent our evolutionary trajectory.

Tools, practices, and processes in this book are designed to foster new ideas and increase creativity in solving problems. Our intention for our readers is nothing less than transformation at the deepest levels. The urgency we feel has motivated us to seek immediate and efficient solutions; and the primary arenas of our research include alchemy and shamanism. Both require deep commitment and presence and a willingness to step outside the comfort zone of more traditional doctrines such as science and religion. [ read more here… ]


This book is written for those who are motivated by love and compassion to engage with the events and situations that cause suffering on our planet. Such engagement, when played out in the spiritual arena, results in the potent release of energy, creation, and healing.

We believe in our ability to create change. It begins with any heartfelt response to events and situations, and grows when fueled by a passionate commitment to serve in creating a better future for ourselves and for future generations.

We started researching this book when we were looking for new tools for our students of Alchemical Healing. Our aim was to find spiritual techniques that would help us both envision solutions to the current challenges on our planet and make the fundamental changes necessary to adapt to and survive these challenges.

There are some survivalists who think that colonizing space will give us a place to which we can escape. Personally, we would rather keep our precious planet, return it to the Garden of Eden on a massive, all-encompassing scale, and still send ships to the planets and the stars for the adventure and the intellectual thrill of it.

Planetary Healing: Spirit Medicine for Global Transformation, an anthology of personal, intimate stories from Nicki Scully and Mark Hallert, offers valuable insight and a strategic plan to more effectively redefine the path of human evolution. The book’s guided shamanic journeys are personally transformative through their ability to induce a state of calm consciousness expressed as a-EEG brain activity. Planetary Healing’s informative and nurturing insights offer readers an opportunity to actively manifest new positive and empowering futures that benefit humanity, Mother Earth and all of life.”

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., Cell biologist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles and coauthor of Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (And A Way To Get There From Here).

“Einstein’s contention that, ‘you can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it’ plays out daily on the world stage. In this unprecedented time of global chaos and change, Planetary Healing taps into a whole new level of mind. The brilliant shamanic journeys in these pages connect the reader with the courage, compassion, and creativity so needed to birth a new world that works for us all.”

Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., Author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind and It’s Not the End of the World: Developing Resilience in Times of Change

Planetary Healing is a treasure trove of teachings and spiritual practices for transforming ourselves and the planet. Together Nicki Scully and Mark Hallert reach into the wealth of their life experiences with great passion to share with us vital information for our survival. Great work!”

Sandra Ingerman, MA author of Medicine for the Earth and Awakening to the Spirit World

One can’t even begin to turn the opening pages of Planetary Healing without becoming fully engaged… I couldn’t put it down. I felt like I had fallen down the rabbit’s hole into a whole new world! The story-telling alone is magnificent, as Nicki and Mark, two extraordinary individuals in an extra-ordinary marriage, share their personal journeys into the realm of alchemical healing. But the heart and essence of Planetary Healing is far more than ‘good story telling’. Their intention for their readers is ‘nothing less than transformation at the deepest level’. And they deliver on this promise, giving tools and practices to foster a deeply personal and planetary healing journey for each individual willing to be a catalyst of change. They’ve created a true wisdom book, fabulously interesting, inspiring and utterly transformative.

Rosemary Gladstar, herbalist & author

I for one can see clearly that our planet is headed for some tumultuous times and I am dismayed at the denial and apathy I see in our society.  Planetary Healing points out these times and in the same breath helps us regain our power to be an active participant in the solutions, not a victim of the problems.  The book along with the CD of guided meditations may be the missing piece for many of the people who feel so disconnected and powerless in today’s world.
