Soul Retrieval with Foxglove, Plant Spirit Initiation and Training with Emma Fitchett, 7-9 June, The Quantocks, SOMERSET, UK.

A weekend training to learn the fundamental skills for working within astral consciousness and performing soul retrieval for others. You will acquire a master ally whose guidance will be invaluable for this work and who will support your evolution as you progress deeper into the astral space. The spirit of Foxglove not only opens portals but is a guide and advisor in the astral plane, its ability to locate lost soul fragments is exceptional.

This weekend training will therefore be set within the container of a plant initiation with this magical plant spirit. We will not be consuming the plant itself due to its high level of toxicity but will be working with live plants and the essence.

This is an advanced course for shamanic practitioners and healer trainees.  Application only. Pre-requisites: Plant spirit work, use of pendulum, dowsing or muscle testing, space holding.

Hazel Initiation, Plant Spirit Initiation and Training with Emma Fitchett, Fri, 16 August, The Quantocks, SOMERSET, UK.

A plant initiation or dieta is a period of time dedicated to honouring and being with one particular plant to be initiated into its world, where a bond of communication is formed between the initiate and the plant spirit. This bond is unique to each person and forms the basis upon which healing, wisdom and insights can be received. It is also a process where we are taken out of our comfort zone in order to understand ourselves better and transcend the conditionings of the heart and mind. External and internal reality become one as we expand into deeper relationship with our self and with nature.

Practical information – We will be fasting for this initiation and only consuming a Hazel elixir, from Friday lunchtime to Sunday lunchtime. This is advisory but not obligatory. We will share a nutritious vegan and gluten free meal on Sunday afternoon before you leave. Refreshing drinks and teas will be provided.

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
