Restoring Wholeness - The Shaman's Craft Practicing at the heart of Creativity and  Healing

NEW INTAKE - taking applications until 23 Feb 2024

                        £100 off first two payments before 30 January   

new Shamanic Practitioner online training

Innate ways - Art and Shamanism

Here is the Shamanic Practitioner training merging Art and Shamanism.  Essentially Art and Shamanism work in the same way.  They weave with a wider order and communicate through the worlds.  How powerful could we all be if we recognised fully the power and multi-world investment of each and every creative act. 

I am getting ready to take people through an online programme and a journey of discovery.  

This course insures you to be a Shamanic Practitioner working in the most creative ways, whilst working with a firm and tested bedrock of foundational practice. 

I have been teaching Creative Shamanism (I originally introduced the term to describe the way I taught this practice) since 2009.  The practice has evolved over two decades.  I am an Artist (M Fine Art) who is passionate about education (PGCE). I have taught in mainstream, Steiner, Montessori and outdoor environments. I am a psychotherapist (MSc Pluralistic counselling).  I have trained with a range of spiritual and shamanic teachers who you can see listed in my Bio.  My recent return to art and film making has opened my eyes to a new way of opening up this practice.

Restoring Wholeness the Shaman's Craft was the title of my  first three year trainings!  It's lovely to do a full circle and bring through a richer thread of creative practice. 

Here is the layout of the course and the timings.  For the first people who you sign up and pay before 30 January, the Module 1 is reduced by £100!

Module 1 
17 Jan - 23 Feb  start point start running through to 21 April  2024


In module 1 Foundations you will:


  • Focus on your calling and map the shamanic territory.  

    It is an exciting 4 months working with Edges, Calling and Loop material.  You set off on a Visionary Quest into your own life.  We work with initiation cycles, nature communicating, ancestor voyaging, archetype excavating and future vision scrying. You will also keep a Pathfinder journal to receive guidance on your path from the vantage point of nature, animal archetypes, sign walking, ancestral guides and the vision of the future ones.

    There are 4 group meetings and 2 individual sessions along with 4 months of course literature. 

Then you will enter Practitioner level and work with the Restoration practice.

This will take 4 months. You will continue to work with an Earth Whisperer project and keep notes on your Pathfinding but the path is more flowing with the practice element now.
