Welcome to the website of Oakenleaf a shamanic practice based here in Perth Scotland where sessions are offered along with remote distance work across the world.
My name is Brian Anderson and I have worked with shamanism personally since 2006. I have a background in counselling and psychology and a natural progression has led me to offer shamanism as well as my work with Tarot as a therapy. (www.brianandersontarottherapy.co.uk)
I work with individuals in standard personal sessions along with a wider range from a healing day/s to longer process. I lead ongoing workshops and trainings which are held locally in Perth Scotland, across the UK and have led these internationally. I also work with healing of land and houses and with the offering of blessings to our land and homes also.
All details of individual work, workshops and trainings are on these website pages please do contact me with any questions or further information.
I have a personal expereince of Shamanism for my own healing which has changed the shape of my life helping me claim a more natural and personal rhythm. I have opened myself to power to move beyond the stories and events that shaped me. I feel that with my ongoing commitment and dedication to these ways the benefits are leading deeper into a more authentic and natural expression of who I am.
This healing process opens new possibilities where we can become the ones that shape and create a life that has personal meaning is fulfilling, creative and sustainable. We open to find our unique qualities so we can share them with our ourselves our families, communities and the land where we live.
I continue to deepen into this work and have trained here as a shamanic practitioner in the UK (2006) with the Sacred Trust as well as extensively with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I also have learnt with Sandra Ingermann, Jonathon Horowitz and Zara Waldeback as well as having had the opportunity to learn with a number of indigenous Teachers that grew up with these ways from the Americas and my homeland of Ireland.
I am a qualified counsellor graduating from the University of the West of England and worked in this way and as a trainer for 15 years. Working mainly in education settings, restorative justice, alongside the NHS and in residential and community based therapeutic support.
My work forms a bridge between ancient knowledge and spirit led wisdom to a grounded and practical application of the trans-personal along with our modern ways of psychology and therapy which I am trained in. I also off course bring myself as someone who is walking this path of return home.
As the work I offer I have experienced in my own healing journey this has shown me that I am not bound by the stories and events of my life and with willingness and courage new possibilities have emerged as my own healing story unfolds.
With this personal healing and the grounding it brings along with my professional training, I am able to offer a safe and compassionate space. I am able to accompany those that are looking for healing that empowers you and offers you practical ways to bring and incorporate this into your everyday life.
It is important to understand that Shamanism is not something that is “done to you” it comes as an offering and blessing for you and as such asks for your own commitment and dedication to your healing process as you integrate and bring about the changes you wish for into your everyday life.
It is a path that leads to a more authentic and creative expression of who you are though it may take courage and a commitment to bring this through as the unlearning of what stops this unravels. The work we undertake in the session offers insight and power for you to do this then it is your responsibility to bring this offering out into your own life.
