to the Shamanic Path
March 10th 2024
Next date Autumn 2024

A 1 day introduction to shamanism and the shamanic pathway. Led by Derek Gane, we shall step out to explore the basics of shamanic journeying and the various techniques used on the journey. We will discover how to connect and work with our allies and totem animal and start to understand the role of the healer in the shamanic world. We will explore the use of the drum and rattle as shamanic tools. Some of this work will be deepening our connection with the elements of nature so please wear suitable clothes. 
I work extensively as a shamanic healer from the Healing Tree Centre and I have been teaching shamanic practice for 18 years and the Shamans Quest Practitioner training is now in its 12th year. My work is grounded in this land and this Earth and guided by Spirit and I enjoy bringing this forward to help others find their healing, their true power and to find their way. 
This day can be used as a gateway to the Shamans Quest Practitioner training that starts in April 2023 and follows the wheel of the year, though this 1 day is also stand alone, as an introduction, and open to all. 
£65 for the day. Vegan soup and bread lunch provided. Please feel free to add to the shared lunch in a small way. Teas coffee etc. provided throughout the day.
What to bring: 
A stone large enough to fill your hand (any type, rough and nature gifted is good) 
Food offering for lunch,   Wet weather clothing and wellies/boots
A drum, rattle, blanket eye covering if you have them (I have spares)

Earth Keepers

Every Wednesday from 10.30. Come for how long you can!

Welcome to Earth Keepers. A weekly conservation and wisdom sharing and mutual support group with the central fire as the focus. The Healing Tree Centre is in 18 acres of conservation land and we'll undertake a diverse range of land management, learning skills and sharing and listening to each others stories. It is an opportunity to give back to the Earth with positive land management. We can all be the "Keeper", regardless of age and experience. Every  Wednesday , between 10.30 to 16.30pm, we'll take on a task of land management (something for all levels), and spend time together, sharing our wisdom and listening to each other. Our aim is to be a friendly, supportive and active volunteer group, held in an appropriately safeguarded space, that will create positive action for the Earth and each other. We each have different skills to offer and are open to learning more. This is an opportunity, especially important at this time, where we can support each other, mentally and emotionally too. The day is led by Derek , an experienced land manager with extensive knowledge of running "Green Team" volunteer groups for Natural England and the National Trust. Come and join us. Open to all ages and abilities. Vegan soup for lunch provided. Tea and coffee provided. You'll be welcome
