Hi there, my name is Oshun Ishelle.
I’m an experienced Priestess who is on this planet to bring healing, sweetness, and beauty to our busy, often disconnected, modern world.
I’m a former techie turned yogini, tantrika, and shaman.
You can find me skinny dipping in rivers, hugging redwood trees in the forest, and blissfully frolicking in the ocean.
After years of sitting crunched over at the computer all day, my body and spirit cried out in pain that inspired me to learn practices to help me stay young, feel better in my body, & more emotionally fulfilled. And part of my healing was also changing career paths to become a healer.
After 10 years of trainings and education in various healing and counseling modalities, it is now my joy to hold space for you on your journey of awakening.
You can come see me for bodywork and energy work that will induce deep states of relaxation, peace, and feeling held in connection and loving presence by the divine feminine.
Or maybe you’re a fellow seeker on a path of personal growth and transformation… if so, I invite you to bring your full self and goals for your emotional, relational, physical, and spiritual development, and book a coaching session with me!

In addition to being gifted with touch and energy work, I'm also a bookworm with a Master's Degree who would happily talk philosophy with you all day! I am well-read on the philosophy of tantra, and can help you understand and contextualize your experiences and provide resources to learn more, in a Tantra Over Tea session.
My clients often say they didn’t know exactly what they were getting into, or what they were coming to me for… they just felt called to show up, and were then amazed with the depth of our work and the transformation and growth they have experienced!

Oh, and are you curious about my name? As a Priestess, I’ve taken the names of two of my favorite goddesses as a way of honoring them and working with their energy….
Oshun (pronounced “oh-shoon”) is an African goddess of rivers, sensuality, and singing, similar to Aphrodite from the Greek tradition. Ixhcel (pronounced “ee-shell”) is the Mayan rainbow goddess of the moon, weaving, and midwifery. It could be said that she is a midwife to transformation.
If you are feeling drawn to me… It’s probably meant to be. Let’s see where we want to go together…

Relationship coaching and spiritual counseling sessions with Oshun are helping me find this new calm I am experiencing. My empathy has become heightened from just a few sessions, and it’s this empathy that is helping me improve on accepting what is going on in my love life, instead of getting spun out and anxious. Even though I'd been working with a therapist for a while, the somatic coaching I'm doing with Oshun is bringing new levels of inner peace.
Truly amazing session with Oshun today. I’ve been coming to the Temple for over 10 years, and this was the experience I’ve been hoping for. Oshun was truly amazing: ultra-present, blissful touch, and a gorgeous person inside & out. Our session has made me re-think what it means to visit the Temple. She connects on a deeper level, and I left with a lot to think about. Amazing combination of playfulness, heart intimacy, and love. Can’t wait to continue working with Oshun.
I had a wonderful first time session with Oshun. She is an amazing teacher and put me at ease immediately. The experience was deeply calming and exhilarating at the same time. I left feeling incredibly energized. Thank you Oshun!
Every review that's been written so far, and all the ways in which Oshun describes herself and her work are entirely accurate. I'm incredibly grateful for her warmth and the ways in which I felt seen via her piercing and compassionate gaze. I look forward to continuing our work.
I had an incredible experience with Oshun. She is super loving, caring, evolved, supportive, and powerful. Strongly recommend!
Amazing person, knew how to unlock aspects of my energy that seem dormant in the monotony of daily life. A truly special and gifted person!

I recently needed a reset massage in the middle of the day while visiting the Los Angeles Temple & Oshun happily obliged. Oshun's touch was gentle, healing and restorative. I'm a fiery go-go-go Type A person, so I wasn't so sure at first about the gentle pressure... but apparently, combined with her silent mojo magic Reiki energy work, I completely unwinded, rebooted and felt completely refreshed. As a person, she's super grounding to be around. Blessings!
I recently booked a tantric session with Oshun and she was amazingly spontaneous, light-hearted and conversant in the beauty of Tantra. It felt like she took me into a transcendent realm where we melded and a quality of oneness pervaded the session. I strongly suggest you book her for a 90 min tantric session to get the full blissful experience that she delivers. I look forward to her return to Marin.
If you haven’t had the sublime pleasure of a tantric session with Oshun Regina(OR), I seriously encourage you to her asap. Simply put, when it comes to an artful touches, OR is in a celestial league of her own. OR provides the extremely pleasurable physical touch that was so tender I believe I lost all conscious thought. An optimal sensory pleasure. But, man, does it feel good. Never before have I been touched with such TLC. I had such a good time the two hours I spent with her the first time. I plan to go again, without a doubt. This lovely woman exudes class. I think I had discovered a real gem. I encourage you to see OR, too. I think you'll be glad you did.
...had no idea what to expect. Definitely one of the most profoundly exquisite and precious experiences I've had. Oshun worked tenderly, wisely, skillfully - weaving hands and heart and sound and smells, expertly guiding me to places I'd never been. Soft oceanic ripples and waves, radiant, ecstatic surges melted my deep grief giving way to aliveness and openess and welcoming of my deep wholesome being. Oshun is expert at her craft: I felt secure and welcomed by this Priestess with a down-to-earth, genuine warmth, deep presence and humour. I feel so grateful as I write this....
O my god! What a holy, healing presence! I felt at home and welcomed immediately. This gifted healer instinctively knew what I needed, and gently met me there. She is strong, centered, yet vulnerable and open. What a rare combination. I wouldn't think of seeing someone else. Her gifts have already begun to transform me. I am so grateful for loving energy!
What an amazing journey with Oshun! This goddess has amazing touch and energy, focusing on your needs and centering you with her amazing breathing and voice...not to mention her beauty in person! Such attention to detail I can't wait to be back.
