COURSES & CIRCLES
RESIDENTIAL -- ONLINE -- MENTORING
Here you can book courses taught by Jonathan, Zara & Annette. At the moment we offer mainly online workshops. Jonathan & Zara hope to resume residential workshops when possible. Annette no longer runs physical courses or individual sessions. For now she is concentrating on international online teaching.
Some courses are open to all, and are either shamanic, animistic or both. All courses can be helpful and inspiring whether you are new to this path or have been walking it for years. Open courses are booked directly through this website. Other courses require previous training, as do all mentoring circles. These are bookable via direct contact only: please read more below and on each course page and follow links to fill in required information. If a course does not have a scheduled date, please click to sign up and receive information when it becomes available.
Find out more about how our training is structured and how to decide what course to do when, by scrolling to the bottom of the page. This is particularly helpful if you have not worked with us before and want to come on an advanced course. Here you will also find links to other people who teach the introduction in a similar way to us, and count as an accepted foundation for our courses.
Working Online in Circle can be a little different. To help you maintain a sense of ethics and clear guidelines, we offer you our guide to sharing shamanic work online, whether as ceremony or circle.
Please note that our workshops are courses in shamanic practice and techniques, life-ways and spirituality. They are not intended as therapy courses.

HOW OUR TRAINING WORKS:
You can begin with any Open course that calls to you, and explore either shamanic or animistic ways of working. If you want to take advanced courses in shamanism with us you need to have completed the introductory workshop The Shaman's Journey. This will teach you the basic approach we use, in terms of shamanic journeying, power, ethics and language. If we are not offering this introduction course, there are several other teachers who work in a similar way that we accept as a foundation for further training with us:
INTRODUCTION COURSES WE RECOMMEND:
UK - Kathy Fried http://kathyfried.co.uk/
UK & online - Shenoah Taylor http://shenoahtaylor.com/
Wales - Jane Shutt & Christine Mark https://cadairidrisshamanism.cymru/
Ireland - Liam Glenane (email)

Denmark - Nicolaj Møller http://forbundethed.dk/
Denmark - Rasmus Ludvigsen http://medicinewalk.dk/
Finland - Christiana Aro-Harle https://solavoima.fi/
After the introduction, there is no fixed sequence of training. People move at their own pace and rhythm when learning with the Spirits, everyone has different requirements and needs. In our view, the real education in shamanism is something that takes place between you and your Spirit teachers. The purpose of our courses is to help initiate, guide, and inspire that process. Most of our courses can be taken in any order, it is up to you to feel what is the right course at a certain time. Many people take courses more than once, including returning to the introduction course years later, and find there is always more to learn. On most courses, there is a mix of people who have worked for a long time and people who have arrived on the path more recently. Please be aware that we do not offer certificates or diplomas.
If you have not trained with us before, please begin by learning more about our way of working. This will give you a sense of whether it is a good fit for you. You can read one of our articles in the Library or watch Jonathan and Zara's talk on Introduction to Shamanism. There are many ways to teach shamanism and approaches can differ greatly. It is important that when you come to train with us, you want to work in the way we do and are happy to follow our guidelines. This way we make sure that we all speak the same "shamanic language" while together. Read more about our way of working here
