Shaman’s Gate- A Course in shaman healing.

This is a core shamanic course covering practical skills in shamanic healing.  You can expect to explore self healing, as well as healing others- whether this is to help you support loved ones, or you want to use these skills as part of an ongoing holistic or caring profession.  This course is almost entirely practical- reading about shamanism is fine, experiencing it is where the magic happens.

Each module (that is two complete workshops) costs £130.  I ask for a deposit of £50 for each module- you then pay the remaining cost- £40 at each workshop.

If you would like to book the whole course in advance please email me and I will send you an invoice for £200. If you would rather set up a direct debit to pay monthly please email  to arrange.

You do not NEED anything- I have tools you can use on the day, or buy off me if you prefer. You may also bring your own. You will use a; pendulum, rattle, smudge stick.

There are plenty of drinks available, please bring food for the day. The course will be repeated in 2021- so if you miss a module, or join at a later module you can complete the course in 2021

A full day workshop- who am I? February

Not officially a part of the course- but well worth attending!

This is a day exploring "who am I" from a shamanic perspective.


The day will include shamanic work with your  power animals/spirit guides, your world tree, gazing, and elements of a soul retrieval.


This is core shamanic work helping you to acknowledge your skills and understand yourself just a little better.

Perfect for anyone who is curious about shamanic work, or keen to pause and reflect on how much they have learnt and changed through their journey.

Running from 10-4. The price is between £65 & £50 depending on income. 


Please secure your place with a £25 deposit, and then pay what you can afford depending on income on the day.

Module 1;  Exploring the element of Air

March 7th 9.30- 3

April 4th 9.30- 5.30

·         Shamanic journey; Going up the world tree

·         Shamanic tool; Breathe & chant

·         Healing experience; Our aura & chakras.

·         Healing tool; rattle

We will explore how to consciously open sacred space, and how to close it again- as well as looking at why this is so important. 

As you consciously connect with another persons auric body I will help you to translate what you are experiencing into  how you can best help your self, or another.

I will teach you how I do my "energy MOT", checking each chakra for blocks, healing and releasing these blocks, and then checking into the aura body.  This is usually how I first work with a client- clearing away every day negativity to allow me to find the deep rooted problems.

In the first workshop we will explore how to connect to another person, and how their emotion can be felt. We will explore how stuck emotion can change our aura.

In the second workshop you will receive and give a full energy "MOT" healing

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 23rd 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.
