Shaman's gate

My aim is to create a sense of community where anyone interested in shamanism can gather. The day is modular- the Seidr circle is in the centre of the day, a place of community and connection. You are welcome to just the circle, or to include the workshops- which are run either side of the circle. 

Whether you have no real idea about what "shamanism" really is, or are committed on your journey and keen to meet like minded souls- take a look at the day to see where you could fit in. 

 

The day starts with a workshop- for those keen to learn in a more structured way.

I will teach practical tools and techniques to help you develop a deep state of altered perception.

I will guide you as you explore shamanic journeying and healing, and help you it understand your experiences. 

Each month there will be a different focus- you can find full details here.

Suitable for anyone interested in shamanism and wanting to learn more.

The day then moves to a Seidr circle (a Norse word for the chant we use). The core of the day- you are welcome just for the circle. If you are attending the workshop before, or afterwards, the circle is included in the price. 

 

I will lead some Nordic chanting. You may find this healing, releasing, inspirational- or you may enter an altered state of consciousness.

There may well be drumming, or a lead meditation- depending on the day.

 

It includes time to chat with tea or coffee- having a chance to chat about this kind of experience really helps you to validate, and better understand your shamanic experiences. You can find out more here.

 

The workshop after the Seidr circle alternates monthly;

 

In March, July, September and November I am running advanced shamanic skills workshops. 

These are designed for people who have worked with me for sometime, or have experience of shamanic work- either with other teachers or as a result of other holistic therapies. If you are interested please contact me first so we can discuss if the workshops are suitable for you.

In April, June, October and december I am holding a  Stav gathering.

 

It is a  chance to explore the runic  stances and martial practices with Simon Cole. There will also be opportunities to learn more about the runes, Norse mythology, and an evening Seidr session if people fancy it.

You can find out more here.

Stav Gathering

I am so excited to be offering a chance for you to learn more about my Nordic path of Stav.

Simon Cole will be teaching the physical aspects (rune stances, staff exercises and more), there will be opportunity to explore rune lore, mythology, and an evening seidr session.

Seidr Circle

Using a Norse chant we will create a deep energy that encourages an altered state of consciousness. There may well be drumming, or a led meditation with drumming.

This is the core of the whole day-  you are welcome to just the circle.

If you are coming to any other session of the day this is included the price.   

Module 2; The element of fire

 

6th June 9.30-3

4th July 9.30-5.30

·         Shamanic journey; working with spirit guides/power allies

·         Shamanic tool; Identifying & releasing blocks

·         Healing experience; Clearing away psychic daggers.

·         Healing tool; smudge stick

 

This module explores the workings of the auric body, the types of negative energies & blocks you might find- and how to deal with them. 

We will cover how to  find, and release;

  • Emotional wounds held in the auric body.

  • Psychic daggers.

In the first workshop there will be journeying, discussion, and you will receive group healing and learn self healing techniques. The work will focus on feeling & identifying blocks.

In the second workshop there will be journeying, discussion, and you will receive and give a full healing to check for and remove/heal all of the above. 

Module 3; The element of water

September 5th 9.30-3

October 24th 9.30-5.30

·         Shamanic journey; Working with water, connecting to the ocean

·         Shamanic tool; Ancestors

·         Healing experience; Letting go of story

·         Healing tool; memory

Sometimes an energy healing is not enough, the energy imprint on the logical mind is so great that only healing the energy body does not clear the wound.  This is especially true with wounds from family, or connected with family dynamics & the ancestors. 

I will teach you how to use breath, words and drum to find the story and "regress" both mind and auric body to heal these deep wounds.

In the first workshop there will be journeying, discussion, and you will experience this in a group setting. 

In the second workshop there will be journeying, discussion, and you will receive and lead a full healing to release deeply held emotional blocks. 

If you are planning on doing this work with clients you will need a drum, in this session I will drum for everyone to give a little added structure to this difficult technique. 

Module 4; The element of earth

7th November 9.30-3

5th December 9.30-5.30

·         Shamanic journey; Going into the roots of the world tree

·         Shamanic tool;  Journeying

·         Healing experience; Soul retrieval

·         Healing tool; Accessing Akashic record

The soul retrieval is a beautiful healing ceremony allowing the shaman to bring back a lost soul part for their client.

 

It blends many of the skills you will have learnt already  to create a cohesive experience.  A full soul retrieval needs the skill of the shaman to hold sacred space, understand the needs of the client, journey for another, and to support a client as they understand the symbols they were offered. 

In the first workshop you will experience a group soul retrieval, a more gentle experience than working one-to-one. Hearing others experiences is a really important part of the learning. 

In the second workshop you will give, and receive a 1-2-1 soul retrieval- with my full support.
