Shamanism is a way of life where we show absolute respect for everyone and everything around us, all the Animal and Plant Kingdoms, respecting Mother Earth and living and breathing with her. People who follow a Shamanic path do everything they can to ensure that there is a world for our all the future Children. Harmony and Balance is important.
How to be a Shaman:
I believe we cannot be a Shaman unless we are born in the culture and chosen by the people of the land. However, in the UK we can train to become Shamanic Practitioners but this does not give us the permission of using the Shamans title. We can learn and use Shamanic Healing and become Shamanic Healers and Shamanic Practitioners.
What is a Shaman?
A Shaman is a Healer, Councillor and a Guide for the Tribe. A Shaman would spend his time walking with one foot in this world and one foot in the Spirit World. He believes that everything has a Spirit and that all energy is connected. He would walk between the two worlds to seek help and knowledge from the Spirits, Power Animals, the Elements and Natural Earth Energies and use Shamanic Journeys to seek guidance. Shamans call upon the energies of Nature energies and Spirit to help to give Shamanic Healing to the people and land. He would use drums, rattles, feathers and natural objects to do this work, treating everything with respect.
I have been consciously walking my Spiritual path since 1993 beginning with Crystals and Tarot and Spiritual Healing, qualifying as a Full Healer Member with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers (MNFSH) in 1995. In 1997 my Spiritual path led me to follow and study Shamanism and since then I have been walking my Shamanic Path. I trained for one year with Alan Tickhill, The Raven Lodge. I also trained for 2 years with Eliana Harvey at Shamanka, gaining my Master Practitioner Qualification, and also with Louise van de Berk from Holland.
I am a Shamanic Practitioner and I strongly resonate and work with our own traditions of Celtic Shamanism and the energy of our Lands. I am a Mesa Carrier and work with ancient Shamanic Healing processes handed down by the Q’ero Shamans from Peru. Additionally, I work with Shamanic practices from North and South America.
I also facilitate Shamanic Training, workshops and groups, Ceremonies and Rituals.
Working in a Shamanic way, I call upon all the natural energies from the surrounding areas, Tree Energy, Earth Energy, Animal Energy in the form of Power Animals, everything is natural and as we are all connected so we can source and use all the healing energy available to us.
I love all forms of healing energy and am also trained in various ‘earthy’ healing techniques and processes which you will find on my website. I believe that if you really resonate with energy healing you can do so much good, as we should all walk in peace and beauty in a balanced way.
Based in Bournemouth Dorset, I practice in surrounding areas of Dorset and Hampshire, although I do practice in areas much further afield.
