Health & wellbeing for your mind, body & spirit

Shamanic Workshops

I am honoured to be a part of the Three Ravens College of Therapeutic Shamanism and to be able to share my passion for shamanism with people in my local area.

As a teacher with the college I offer one day Introduction to Shamanism workshops, introducing people to the joys of shamanic practice and helping them discover how shamanism can support them in their loves.  I also deliver Next Steps days which are one-day workshops covering the nuts and bolts basics of shamanic practice.

A new development for 2018 will see me joining the foundation teaching team at the college.

Take a look at the tabs below for full details of the workshops available…

Shamanism is our most ancient spiritual tradition. It has been practised for tens of thousands of years in every part of the world where humans have settled. It is the spiritual practice that the overwhelming majority of our ancestors practised, going way back into human history. It has seen cultures rise and fall. The fact that it has survived and thrived is testament to its truth, power and usefulness. It is in itself not a religion, and need not be incompatible with any religious practice.

Throughout its long and varied history, shamanism has taken many forms, appropriate to the culture it has found itself in. Therapeutic Shamanism combines the principles of shamanic work with those of modern counselling and psychotherapy. It is highly relevant to modern life and its dis-eases. It provides an easily-learnt tool kit of techniques and methods that are profoundly useful for personal healing, help with life issues, raising self-awareness, personal and spiritual development, and much more.

This experiential course covers the basics of shamanic practice. It is usually an eye-opening experience that opens up a rich and amazing world of possibilities. Participants will be shown simple yet profound techniques to enter shamanic reality to reconnect to their own spirituality. No prior experience is necessary. The course will include…

  • the history of shamanism
  • the key concepts of the shamanic universe
  • how to enter a shamanic ‘journey’
  • finding your ‘power animal’
  • the basics of how to journey for others

Drum Healing Circle

48 smlDrum Healing Circle

Tickets £18 (early bird £15)

1:00pm-3:00pm

1st September

3rd November

This fun, interactive afternoon will take you on a playful journey of healing.

The drum, also known as the shaman’s horse has been the vehicle for shamanic healing for thousands of years.  The drum has its own spirit and imparts its own medicine when played.

Using drums (and rattles), together we will create a safe holding space; a transformative and nurturing environment in which to explore the rhythm of the drum.  The voice of the drum will help us find our centre and take us on a journey of healing to experience the power of our inner world, whilst also connecting to mother earth.

The healing drum circle provides a sense of connectedness with other likeminded people, a community of sorts, and the opportunity to connect with your own spirit at a deeper level.

In addition, the benefits of drumming also include inducing deep relaxation, helping to lower blood pressure and relieving stress.

Absolutely no prior experience or knowledge is required to attend this event, just an open mind and the willingness to explore and play.

To book online just click the date above which you would like to attend and this will take you to the Eventbrite booking page.
