Energetic Recycling. March 16th/17th 2019 10am/5pm with Brian Anderson. Cost £120/£90 for the Weekend, held near PERTH, SCOTLAND.

I am really excited to offer this work which has been developed over many years of personal exploration. In this 2 day workshop we are able to recycle the energy of our lives into a more positive flow. Working to gain a deeper relationship with the power of our thoughts and beliefs it is an opportunity to shine a light on them and see how these are creating our world. With this awareness we can see if these are supporting or inhibiting the direction we wish our lives to go in. This wisdom gives us an opportunity to work with our helping spirits and strengthen that which is supporting us and release that which is not bringing more power to redirect our lives in a way we wish too.

A good grounding in shamanic journeying and a working relationship with your helping spirits are requirements to get the most benefits from this weekend, please contact me for booking and further details.

For booking or with any questions please get in touch: email Brian Anderson at oakenleaf@zoho.com.

The King of Summer and one of our most beloved trees, the spirit of the magnificent Oak is a noble guardian. Rooted deep into the earth and reaching up to the sky with its vast spread of leaves all absorbing the sun and starlight, Oak stands as the tree of life and the rainbow bridge between the 3 worlds.

In the Ogham Oak is named ‘Duir’, in Gaelic ‘Daur’ and is thought gave rise to the English word ‘door’, this tree stands as a doorway into greater wisdom, an entryway into both the truth of the otherworld and cosmic consciousness itself.

African Shamanic Plant Healing Ceremony with John Lockley. Sat 1 Jun 2019 10:00 am – Sun 2 Jun 2019 12:30 pm, Barnes Green Centre, LONDON SW13 9HE. Many people in the West associate the term “plant medicine” with hallucinogenic experiences. But this is just one small area of plant medicine. In many Shamanic cultures the Shaman connects and works with the spirit of the plant in order to restore balance and health. In this workshop, Senior Sangoma John Lockley will teach how dreams can help you to connect with your soul and the plant and animal worlds. He will discuss how plants are used in South Africa to deepen one’s connection to the ‘dreamtime’, ancestral world and ultimately help people to connect with their life path. They do this through cleansing and protecting the individual and aligning them with the spirit of nature.

Participants will be lead through a gentle process in preparation for the plant ceremony. The ceremony will start with an ancestral invocation where each person will be given an opportunity to call on their ancestors. This will be followed by a combination of heart beat meditation (to encourage stillness) and shaking medicine (dynamic movement) to raise the umbilini (kundalini) or spinal energy. Participants will experience the plant ceremony as an external cleanse with their feet immersed in the plant mixture. Plant spirits love rhythm and song. To enhance this experience and facilitate deeper healing John will chant ‘ingomas’ or sacred sangoma songs assisted by the African drum. He will lead the participants on a ‘healing journey’ to release negativity and fear and be open to more abundance and joy in their lives.

Walking the Sacred Way. Near PERTH, SCOTLAND, with Brian Anderson. Shamanism opens us to the sacredness of life, this process moves us away from a hierarchical and linear mind to a circular state of consciousness where we know we are connected as one web of life and come to experience life as sacred and that all life is alive and that land is sacred and so asks to be respected. Cultures across the world talk of nature as the visible face of spirit so as we walk we are walking in the presence of spirit this is why a conscious walk in nature can be so restorative for us.

This 3 hour workshop offers an opening and deepening of this sacred experience and offers a practical and effective method of healing that you can use in your life as and when needed. We start with our ceremony with respect and moving our perception to see that land as a sacred living spirit, one that is aware of us as we are aware of it. We then will walk out with the land to continue our work and finally return to share and integrate your experience where support will be given to carry on this opening in your everyday.

You will need to bring with you a question about something that you need support with or that is currently challenging you. There is no need to share this as we will be working to resolve this in a different way with the healing power of the natural world. Email oakenleaf@zoho.com

Recognized as one of the most renowned shamanic centers in the Peruvian Amazon, all our ayahuasca retreat programs are led by 7th Generation Master Shaman, Maestro Alberto Torres Davila, who has over 50 years of experience working with ayahuasca and medicinal plants. Together with our team of dedicated shamans and assistants, our work helps unite these ancient practices with modern needs to illuminate and unlock the many benefits that ayahuasca and the shamanic arts have to offer you.
