Shaman Durek is Hollywood's most popular guru, an exotic mystic for the stars and, if he needs further anointing, is the personal spiritualist of Gwyneth Paltrow, whom he calls one of his best friends.
& # 39; What I love about Gwyneth is that from the moment we met, we knew we were brother and sister and that we were supposed to be in each other's lives, "he says. & # 39; There are no walls or barriers between us. Just love. & # 39;
For Gwyneth and his other star clients, he is a one-man bridge to the spiritual world; a third generation shaman paving a super fast road to the land of the non-living for the benefit of the undead.

Right now he is pressing his hands on my right forearm, and locating a & # 39; bone split & # 39; who apparently indicates my genius for singing (I am tone deaf) and evokes the power of my long-lost ancestors to release the fears in my body.
& # 39; Can you make that increase stronger in her system? Absolutely. Thanks, & he calls.
& # 39; Can you send a pulse sequence into her body and open her synthesis? All right. Jan, repeat after me: & # 39; I generate electricity in my right hand & # 39 ;. & # 39;
& # 39; I generate electricity in my right hand & # 39 ;, I say and actually I feel pins and needles, but that is only because the blood flows back after I have held my arm upright for so long?
& # 39; Oh, I love a super skeptic, & # 39; he roars. & # 39; They are the best students. Ghosts, go ahead and speed up the process. & # 39;
The spiritualist is currently in a head-grabbing relationship with the controversial princess Martha Louise of Norway, a third cousin of the queen
On the crazy shores of urban spiritualism, there is someone wilder than the Los Angeles-based shaman Durek, the bisexual, self-proclaimed & # 39; global ambassador of love & # 39; whose real name is Derek Verrett?
Tickets for his recent Shamanic Heart Opening Electric Fire Meditation show in LA went for £ 80 each.
He describes himself as an evolutionary innovator, a hacker and a leader for women's empowerment.
He brings a bucket to his sessions because he is so adept at vomiting clients to get rid of the & # 39; poisons & # 39; in their body.
Oh my God. Did he have Gwyneth vomit? Please say yes.
& # 39; Did I say I have?
& # 39; I don't know if she likes talking about it & # 39 ;, he chuckles. & # 39; But let's say she finds my powers very interesting. & # 39;
In the course of our session (non-vomit), I learn that Durek is of African Haitian descent on his father's side and Norwegian-Indian from his mother.
The divorced princess, fourth in line at the Norwegian throne, has written on Instagram about her love for her & # 39; twin flame & # 39; and asked people not to rush to criticize
He grew up in San Francisco, where his gifts were recognized when he was just two, and he started practicing as a shaman at 12 o'clock.
He swam with piranha & # 39; s (& # 39; an accident & # 39;) and once died of kidney failure (& # 39; I was flat & # 39; for four minutes) before a kidney transplant in 2012.
He currently has an important relationship with the controversial princess Martha Louise of Norway, a third cousin of the queen, who once opened a school in Oslo to help people talk to angels and describe himself as a & # 39; light-sensitive light source & # 39; .
& # 39; That woman is the love of my life, & # 39; he echoes with his rich, deep voice. & # 39; We love each other so much. She is my goddess. I adore the ground on which she walks and she adores the ground on which I walk.
& # 39; Yes, we talked about marriage. It's too fast right now, but it's definitely on the cards. & # 39;
The divorced princess, fourth in line at the Norwegian throne, has written on Instagram about her love for her & # 39; twin flame & # 39; and asked people not to rush to criticize. Little chance!
Princess Martha appeared with her boyfriend on Good Morning Norway, just a few days after they revealed their relationship with the world on Instagram
The couple recently embarked on an awareness-raising Scandinavian tour called The Princess and The Shaman, a commercial venture that did not go well in some circles.
& # 39; I didn't feel welcome in Norway and it hurts & # 39 ;, says Durek. & # 39; We were sharing love with the world and the entire Press was looking for stories to tear me apart. & # 39;
In his bumpy introduction to Europeans and European royal houses, Durek sees clear parallels between himself and the Duchess of Sussex.
& # 39; It was ridiculous. There were absolutely racial overtones. The only place where I felt that I fell in love was with Martha, her friends, her family and the people who came to the workshops. & # 39;
Many of the Norwegian media were critical of the fact that the 47-year-old princess used her title for commercial gain, and spent much of her time on stage complaining about being royal.
They were also not very enthusiastic about Durek, who in the past has claimed to be able to split atoms and some people have & # 39; released & # 39; of cancer.
The bishop of Stavanger withdrew permission for the couple to keep one of their studios in her church, while the local newspaper in Tromso looked at the princess and the shaman in less than flattering terms.
& # 39; We were prepared for gibberish and clichés, & # 39; reported the iTromso, & # 39; but it was still two hours of your life that you will never come back. The problem was a lack of form, followed by a lack of content. & # 39; Oh dear.
& # 39; Well, & # 39; he says. & # 39; I told Martha I'm not going back to Norway for long. I first have to decompress everything.
& # 39; It was hard to have the paparazzi in my face all the time. I have never experienced that before. & # 39;
The mother-of-three, who divorced husband Ari Behn in 2017, described her beauty as her & # 39; twin flame & # 39; and promised to love him from & # 39; this eternity to the next & # 39; in a flowing mail
He is certainly a photogenic and impressive figure, more than 6 meters in his Converse basketball shoes and with a beautiful dome-shaped head that he shaves every day.
He has a beautiful skin color (thanks to the Goop products that Gwyneth gives him as a gift, he particularly loves the all-in-one face mask) and wears a cotton jumpsuit from Japan and a scarf & # 39; made for me by my girlfriend Emily Factor of the Max Factor family. & # 39;
He denies his jumpsuit to show me his transplant scars – his sister Angelina donated one of her kidneys – and the mutilations left ten years after dialysis. & # 39; Princess Martha says that my body is a work of art & # 39 ;, he says. I bet she does that!
Sjamaan Durek – where to start? How to separate the embroidery from the straight seams, the grain of the talkative chaff in a life that seems to be part of Eddie Murphy film and partly Disney fantasy?
Of course he knows that some people do not believe in his shamanism, but the reasons are that they are afraid of his power.
& # 39; Since I was a little boy, I have been dealing with people who are afraid of me. Or make a joke about me. I'm used to it. I am not bothered by being ridiculed or banned or told that I am a devil worshiper.
& # 39; But I can't help helping people. I am the man who advises Uber drivers. I am the man who opens my door and takes a homeless person inside and bathes them with my own hands. That's me. & # 39;
Now he has to deal with those who say that he is only interested in Princess Martha because of her money and prestige.
Durek has claimed in the past that he can split atoms and some people have & # 39; released & # 39; of cancer
& # 39; This is very ridiculous. I don't think in terms of money. When I met her, the first thing I did was see if she was wearing a Rolex watch. If she had done that, I would not have been interested. I hate that kind of entertainment. & # 39;
Anyway, Durek says he easily adapted to royal life in Norway because his father David Verrett was a multi-millionaire architect who built hotels in San Francisco. (& # 39; I love the Norwegian royal family, they were hospitable and wonderful & # 39 ;, he says. & # 39; My love for King Harald is enormous. & # 39;)
Durek's aunt was the famous mezzo-soprano Shirley Verrett (who died in 2010) and grew up with yachts and servants.
Nevertheless, he insisted on going to a local school instead of a paid school, which was very noble for a little boy.
He has lived in Turkey, Israel and Belize, where he has studied shamanism and treated clients. He lived in London for a year in the 1990s, and stayed with a hedge fund client whose life & I turned around & # 39 ;.
He went out with both men and women. His longest romance was eight years with masseur Hank Greenberg.
They had a healing company in LA and it was Hank who fed Durek after his transplant after his transplant.
The couple, engaged to get married, split into bitter circumstances in 2015.
& # 39; I loved Durek very much and wish him all the best, but I have nothing nice to say about him & # 39 ;, says Greenberg, 47.
& # 39; I can hardly believe he is authentic based on my own personal experiences with him.
& # 39; He has a huge talent and I believe in his mission that love is the answer, but I no longer believe in the man. & # 39;
Greenberg now lives in Arizona, has a loving relationship and is happy with his life. He has been asked by Durek & # 39; s management to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, but refuses.
He thinks he had withheld debts when his company went bankrupt and he does not like how Durek becomes friendly to his rich and powerful customers.
& # 39; It is a conflict of interest for a counselor to follow his customers. I don't think it's ethical. I would feel responsible if someone gets hurt, that's why I talk it up. & # 39;
For his part, Shaman Durek believes that & # 39; my ex is going to say bad things about me because he is my ex & # 39 ;. And he also believes that he has never been in love the way he is with Princess Martha.
They met in LA a year ago, on a blind date, set up by friends who thought they would be together.
During a vegan lunch provided by the Gratitude Cafe, which specializes in delicacies such as bacon with coconut and zucchini houmous, their heart became one.
& # 39; She walked through the door & # 39 ;, says Durek, & # 39; and it was immediate. I looked into her big blue eyes and we just stared at each other. She said: & # 39; I know who you are. & # 39; And I said: & # 39; I also know who you are. & # 39;
What, wait. Have you met before? & # 39; We were married in a previous life & # 39 ;, he explains. & # 39; We loved each other unconditionally, then and now. We like to sing Disney songs together, to be children together, to laugh and cry together. & # 39;
He sings me a few bars of a song from Aladdin to demonstrate. & # 39; When did your heart decide, & # 39; he says, while his big bass voice fills the small treatment room in The LifeSpace, a center for health and healing in West London.
He had just completed a two-hour shamanic treatment with a client and is still working on me.
& # 39; Do you serve the darkness or the light? & # 39; he blows. & # 39; The light & # 39 ;, I squeak. He addresses the spirits directly, such as Captain Kirk addressing his troops from the bridge.
& # 39; Spirits accelerate the energy field. Go ahead and place an energy field explosion in her shoulder and shock her left shoulder at 2,000.
& # 39; Enter her brain and download the energy. Disconnect the Matrix that has programmed her since she was young and most people on this planet to become slaves to a system they don't believe in, & he recommends.
& # 39; Let the phasers numb, & # 39; I almost add. I try to cough up my inner venom, like a cat with a furball, but the only thing I get in it is clearing a modest throat. It is handy, I say, that the spirits speak to you in English.
& # 39; It's & # 39 ;, he says, and then describes how the spirits tell him what a wonderful person I am; humble, hardworking and selfless. Correct!
He tells me how much he hates being called a celebrity shaman, almost as much as he likes hanging out with Gwyneth.
She makes him his favorite vegetable stew, gives him advice about his career.
& # 39; Her husband is my brother, her children are my baby & # 39; s & # 39 ;, he says before trying to connect me with my ancestors by the spirit.
& # 39; What do they tell you? & # 39; he says. & # 39; What do they say? & # 39; That our time is together, I say.
Amen for that.
