The Compass Within

The Travelling Shaman Studio, Airlie

Saturday 13th July 2019 | 10 am – 4 pm | Places Available

The course will take you into Compass work. If you feel ready to discover and work with your inner compass, develop your intuition and your ability to live in the world without being pulled in multiple directions this course may suit you.
 
Our world, both inner and outer, are full of maps & signposts – ways to understand the world and ways to walk our path as authentically as possible. However, unless we are in direct connection with our inner compass then we will struggle to know the direction to follow or even where we are to begin with.
 
This course will explore inner and outer maps & signposts and connect us to our inner compass to move us to place of smooth living and easier personal development.
 

To access this course, you will have taken the Introduction to Shamanism (next course date is 25th May 2019), or other beginners course with me. If you have other Shamanic experience please get in touch to discuss.

Cost £75 (includes plant based lunch with gluten free/vegan options)

 
Please bring:
Notebook & Pen
Mat, pillow and blanket for journey work
Snacks

Ancient Lands, Ancient Lives

The Travelling Shaman Studio, Airlie

Sat 3rd Aug – Sun 4th Aug | 10 am – 7 pm / 10 am – 2 pm | Places Available

This two day advanced course will take you deep into the ancient Pictish lands of Angus where we will connect with ancient sites and work with developing personal ceremony.

Our ancestors who lived on this land before us worked in a deeply ceremonial way, creating a life in harmony with nature and the surrounding landscape. Rituals, ceremonies, stories and song developed spontaneously from the daily interactions between land, animal, plant and people. These relationships and inspirations are as available to us today as they were to those living thousands of years ago. Through a combination of walking, talking, seeing and feeling at two archaeologically important ancient sites we will build a spiritual and mythological bridge between past and present and allow the flow of intuitive ceremony.

From this weekend course you will have deepened your connection to our ancient land, worked with intuitive ceremony and thought about how to weave these learnings into our lives.

To access this course, you will have taken the Introduction to Shamanism (next course date is 25th May 2019), or other beginners course with me. If you have other Shamanic experience please get in touch to discuss.

Saturday 3rd August | 10 am – 7 pm
Sunday 4th August | 10 am – 2 pm

Cost £180 (includes plant based lunch on both days & dinner on Saturday with gluten free/vegan options)

Please bring:
Notebook & Pen
Mat, pillow and blanket for journey work
Snacks
Good waterproof outdoor walking clothes, boots
A ceremonial costume (details to follow on booking)

This course involves walking to sites so attendees must have a reasonable level of fitness. The sites are close to the road but involve steep hills, and one fence that does not open so will need climbed. If you have any concerns, please get in touch to discuss.

Sites:
Airlie Souterrain
The monument is a stone-built souterrain, a type of prehistoric underground structure dating probably to the Roman Iron Age (sometime in the first two centuries AD). The souterrain is visible as an underground curving passage, with rubble-built side-walls and a roof of large stone slabs. It is about 20m long, aligned roughly NW-SE, with an entrance at the NW end. Internally it measures about 1.5m wide and stands 1.6m high. One of the roof slabs bears incised decoration of cup-marks and serpent-like motifs.

Barry Hill Pictish Hill Fort
This fort encloses the summit of Barry Hill, a lower isolated hill separated from the Hill of Loyal and the rest of the Hill of Alyth on the W by the steep-sided gully that carries the public road northwards from Alyth into Glen Isla. The defences are evidently complex, but while the innermost enclosure and a substantial outer wall on the E and S might reasonably be presented as the final phase of construction, the extent and overall plan of the earlier circuits is unclear.

 

Shamanic Foraging

The Travelling Shaman Studio, Airlie

Sun 30th June | 10 am – 4 pm | Places Available

This course aims to explore our reciprocal relationship with nature and our connection with our lands and the seasons. We will work with matching our internal rhythm to the rhythm of nature and work with nature healing.
 
The day will consist of a morning of introduction to and deepening of Shamanic connection and journeying with our land. This connection will support us to understand the ways that we can begin to open ourselves up to the healing nature of the world around us.
 
In addition, we will be taken on a foraging walk to pick some local plants and herbs to make fresh tea. There will be a tea blending time using plants foraged and dried by Wendy using ancient sacred practices. You will be able to take your special tea blend home with you.
 
We will also learn how to develop a reciprocal relationship with the herbs we use, learning how to merge and accept both the physical and spiritual healing that plants offer us.
 
This way of working with our land and the plants that grow there has been available to us for thousands of years. The sacred connection is waiting for us and calling to us…
 
This course is suitable for complete beginners in both Herbal and Shamanic work. It will also be useful to anyone who has experience in either and wishes to further their understanding of this deep work.
