Remembering Our Shamanic Way. An introduction to Shamanism as practical support for life, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th July 10am-5pm, with Brian Anderson. This will be an ONLINE Workshop over both days. I look forward to welcoming you to this opening to your shamanic path.

“The shaman works by asking for help from the spirits to assist with an issue or problem, they then bring this information back and then do something with it!”

This for me captures what shamanism is about and the shamanic journey is one of the methods that the shaman travels in the world of spirit to meet this. Working with the shamanic journey is a safe, time tested and effective way to support and grow our lives. Over our time together you will gain a practical, working knowledge and experience of the shamanic journey helping to start to build or deepen partnerships with your own helping spirits for healing guidance and problem solving.

The weekend includes, Upper and Lower world Journeys, asking questions of the spirits and learning how to understand the answers given, working with sacred shamanic tools, ethics of journeying and working in ceremony, living with shamanism as a way of life, working with our personal power and working within nature. At the end of the weekend, you will have clarity in the method of the journey and developing confidence to bring this as a practical spiritual support for your everyday life to work with and practice as you wish.

Cost for full workshop £90, deposit of £45 asked for on booking. Contact details and more information through website link above or email imbasdarachduille@outlook.com

Contemplation of Our Death, Friday 28th, Saturday 29th, Sunday 30th October, 10am – 5pm, with Brian Anderson, near PERTH, SCOTLAND.

Our physical death is an inevitable as well as natural part of our life’s process and yet can be a source of pain, fear and become a block to living. The aim of this three day workshop is to unlock a deeper understanding of our own death then finding peace with this fact it can then help us to live in a richer, dynamic and creative way.

Coming together at this time of Samhain, where in the Celtic tradition we honour our ancestors, brings an opportunity to explore with others in a safe, respectful and held way our relationship with one of the few things we can be certain of, that we will die.

What has shaped our relationship with death? What do we believe about the dying process and what happens when we die? What part does my relationship with death play in me fully living life? And what awaits beyond death?  These are some of the questions we will be exploring.

Over the three days we will work as a group and on our own with creative tasks, meditations and shamanic journeys, sharing circles, ceremony and time out on the land. This process works to bring us closer to our own defined relationship with our death and then we can explore ways that this acceptance can serve and support our life.

I have had a very present and strong relationship with death from an early age and am delighted to offer this time to share my learning and listen to your experiences and understanding so together we can move towards a life enhancing encounter and initiation with our death, all are welcome regardless of background and beliefs.

Cost for three days £180 including a vegan lunch on each day. Please contact to book your place or with any questions. A deposit of £60 is required with booking to secure your place.

121 workshops mean that you can make more choices about your drum. Perhaps pyrography or paint on the hoop, different crystal placements, adding feathers or attaching things, changing the way the handle looks. These are £299 per person and 10:30am to around 5:30pm. Group workshops can take up to 7 participants, (if in my home the maximum is 4). In this space we all make a traditional drum with a cross handle or 3 strand goddess handle. You have the option of placing a crystal in the centre of the handle. These are £200 per person.

Melonie also offers advanced workshops for those that have perhaps birthed a drum before and now want to expand their creativity. In these workshops people have created whale tail handles, ovoid drums with stick handles, intricate handle designs or crystal placements and more.

Melonie also makes and sells drums, take commissions for embellished drums and rattles.

SCOTLAND

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


Sacred Activism Events Monthly.Near PERTH, SCOTLAND, with Brian Anderson. These events are held each month throughout the year please see website for dates.
