Weaving shamanism and creativity.

When we use our creative talents and skills to create what we see on a shamanic journey, we are honouring the part of ourselves which needs to come back into balance.

Altars

Altar Work is an essential tool for our daily practice as a shaman to keep in ‘Ayni’ with the world. This is a Quechuan word for right relationship. An altar will help us to come back into balance with ourselves and to reach that deep point of stillness. An altar acts as a bridge between the worlds.

The Power of Community – Dreaming Our World into Being.

There’s nothing quite like a fire or music to bring people together and as a shamanic practitioner, I often hold full moon ceremonies in the garden. They stoke the fires of people’s hearts through any hardship or suffering, as well as helping us to let go of a quality that we no longer need in our lives, or that may be holding us back.

Private Practice

Psychologists generally consider the organism the basis of the mind, and therefore a vitally related area of study.

Moving Mandala – an interview with Nancy Dancing Light.

The Mandala Dance itself is where time and the timeless meet, where when we forget to be self-conscious and join the collective energy of the moment. With trained people, the Mandala Dance, which is a form of journeying, can bring a whole community to another level of awareness together. Nancy Dancing Light

Labyrinths for Creative Healing.

The labyrinth is an ancient universal symbol found all over the world and increasingly, labyrinths are emerging in communities as a sacred space for people. They are also used as a tool for problem solving, in personal relationships, for meditation purposes, or purely for enjoyment. They are amazing resources – they can work real magic by bringing worlds together and creating transformation.

Eagle – Dreaming our World into Being.

Sometimes, when we can only trust that the next step is for our highest good, then eagle can help us to have the vision to see our situation or re-birth through in a series of transitions. Eagle gives us the ultimate tool to let everything go.

The Beauty and Truth of Sachamamma Medicine.

At first it felt strange to think that I could evoke an amazonian serpent energy to weave it’s way into my life and help me to literally clean up the flow of my river. Little did I know quite how transformational serpent would end up being! Sachamamma has guided me through death and re-birth with grace and noble vision; it was only me who kept screaming for help!
