A regular and varied list of workshops run throughout the year to support you in your life and spiritual journey. Some are purely shamanic based other workshops will support someone with an interest in nature-based spirituality.
THE DIRECTIONAL ELEMENTS OF LIFE
This six day course held over 12 months is a journey within ourselves and across the landscape that we inhabit. Meeting and building relationship with the elements of spirit, air, fire, water and earth we move from the center out into the directions of the east, south, west and north.
The wisdom our ancestors held gave qualities and attributes to each of the directions and the elements as way to orientate ourselves and seek harmony both within ourselves and with the land we live upon. In this wheel of empowerment we were seen very much as a aspect of the land and our environment shaped us as much as we sought to shape it.
The pilgrimage this course offers begins with the element of spirit traveling out from the center through air, fire water and earth and the circle will complete returning to spirit though with a new understanding from the journey we have taken. We will take time to connect and understand the directions and there practical application for our lives leaving and returning from the center out into the east, south, west and north.
As we travel we clear and open the pathways to the directions this act opening us up to a greater connection to the force and offerings of the elements both within ourselves and out on the land as we embody the principle of so within so without. At the journeys end we begin once more with a deeper connection and understanding of ourselves and our place and responsibility within the landscape.
Each day we focus on a particular direction and element and you will be invited to continue this exploration beyond the day of the workshop to deepen into this so it becomes your lived life.

REMEMBERING OUR SHAMANIC WAY
An Introduction to Shamanism as practical support for life.
Saturday/Sunday 30th/31st July 2022 10am/5pm each day. This will be an Online Workshop over both days. I look forward to welcome you to this opening to your shamanic path. Cost for full workshop £90 deposit of £45 asked for on booking.
“The shaman works by asking for help from the spirits to assist with a issue or problem, they then bring this information back and then do something with it!”
This for me captures what shamanism is about and the shamanic journey is one of the methods that the shaman travels in the world of spirit to meet this. Working with the shamanic journey is a safe, time tested and effective way to support and grow our lives.
Over our time together you will gain a practical, working knowledge and experience of the shamanic journey helping to start to build or deepen partnerships with your own helping spirits for healing guidance and problem solving.
The weekend includes, Upper and Lower world Journeys, asking questions of the spirits and learning how to understand the answers given, working with sacred shamanic tools, ethics of journeying and working in ceremony, living with shamanism as a way of life, working with our personal power and working within nature.
At the end of the weekend you will have clarity in the method of the journey and developing confidence to bring this as a practical spiritual support for your everyday life to work with and practice as you wish.
CONTEMPLATION OF OUR DEATH
Friday 28th , Saturday 29th, Sunday 30th October 2022 10am to 5pm each day.
Our physical death is an inevitable as well as natural part of our life’s process and yet can be a source of pain, fear and become a block to living. The aim of this three day workshop is to unlock a deeper understanding of our own death then finding peace with this fact it can then help us to live in a richer, dynamic and creative way.
Coming together at this time of Samhain, where in the Celtic tradition we honour our ancestors, brings a opportunity to explore with others in a safe, respectful and held way our relationship with one of the few things we can be certain of, that we will die.
What has shaped our relationship with death? What do we believe about they dying process and what happens when we die? what part does my relationship with death play in me fully living life?and what awaits beyond death? These are some of the questions we will be exploring.
Over the three days we will work as a group and on our own with creative tasks, meditations and shamanic journeys, sharing circles, ceremony and time out on the land. This process works to bring us closer to our own defined relationship with our death then we can explore ways that this acceptance can serve and support our life.
I have had a very present and strong relationship with death from a early age and am delighted to offer this time to share my learning and listen to your experiences and understanding so together we can move towards a life enhancing encounter and initiation with our death, all are welcome regardless of background and beliefs.
Cost for three days £180 including a vegan lunch on each day please contact to book your place or with any questions. A deposit of £60 is required with booking to secure your place.
SHAMANIC COUNSELING ~ LEARNING THE SHAMANIC JOURNEY
A 6 session personal workshop that can be taken anytime. In learning the method of the shamanic journey you will learn how to safely and effectively engage with your own helping compassionate spirits as a method of guidance and problem solving. This time tested practice opens us up to build partnerships with our own helping spirits to dynamically and practically support our lives.
The six session covers the cosmology of the shamans map, we will undertake Lower and Upper world journeys, learn how to ask questions of the spirits and how to understand how they communicate with us as well as look at how to bring this wisdom practically out into our own lives. This means as a result we have a effective practice to build supportive relationships that we can call on at anytime to grow our lives.
It works best to have regular sessions with a space of one to two weeks in between to keep the momentum moving. Currently this work is offered online using Zoom/Skype and each session last around one and half to two hours. Cost for the full six session £300 paid in full or with deposit of £100 for first session then £40 paid for each the five remaining sessions. Please contact with any questions or to arrange this workshop.
