A channel for the divine, a messenger, and a guide through transitions, Tatum Barnes facilitates meditations that bring people to the Seat of the Sacred within. Barnes enjoys working with diverse populations, including members of the African Diaspora as they embark on their journey of deep healing.
Tatum Barnes is an incredibly skillful, solid, and empathetic guide. He’s highly educated and can bring a number of saints and scholars into discussions about emotional wellbeing — but he can also throw the books aside to speak from (and to) the heart! Whenever I’m feeling shaky and uncertain, I simply remember the direction from his meditation: “Put on your big red boots.” Anyone looking to reground and rediscover inherent dignity should work with Tatum.
When I booked a session with Tatum, I was overwhelmed, overworked, and ready for a creative boost in my life. Our work together was both inspiring and eye-opening, and helped to provide some perspective on the career and life changes I was going through. Between the calming meditation, insightful tarot reading, and overall space for reflection and exploration, I was floored at what a gifted practitioner Tatum truly is. Tatum's presence is undeniably grounding and affirming. He truly knows how to make you feel seen and heard without judgment, which means the world when you're going through something tough. Thank you for a transformative experience!
It is a privilege to be Tatum's client. Tatum helped to relight my flame and clear fog from my eyes. He provides genuine guidance and care in my growth as a human being. Words cannot truly describe the magic in the service he offers and continues to teach me. A whole new portal of experience, lessons, and love have graciously come my way the past few years. Time spent with Tatum, has equipped me to better grasp and live these moments. His knowledge and presence have been a gracious honor.
It took one workshop, one hour, and just one person to remind of the depth of my own intuition, the power of prayers, and to believe in the magic of the Divine/Universe again. It was a heartfelt and humbling experience, for which I am immensely grateful.
I was recommended by a mutual friend to speak with Tatum after I was robbed at gunpoint around the corner from my house. Upon our first meeting, I set my main intention to get rid of the fear that I had from this specific incident, but after only three sessions with Tatum, I believe that my life has transformed in a way I couldn't have imagined. Not only has my fear completely gone, but I feel as though a lot of my self-doubt and self-worth issues have subsided as well. Since our sessions in the months afterward, I was still noticing changes in myself that felt impossible before. I believe he gave me the opportunity to go after my dreams in a way I never felt possible. People have recognized my energy shift and I have received so much love from friends and even strangers since my time working with Tatum. If you are having issues with ANYTHING, I would recommend you go see him. You will be surprised at how much can change. I'm so grateful I got to work with him!
Tatum’s healing practice radically transformed the way I see myself, my past, and my future. Over the course of three sessions, we built a shared language and a foundation of trust and compassion buoyed by Tatum’s beautiful sense of humor and generous humanity. I came out the other side of our sessions less anxious, more generous, more capable of loving myself and more prepared to cope with the uncertainty of the future.
