Shamanism is the oldest form of healing known to man and can be tracked back at least 30,000 years.

  • What is Shamanism? Why Shamanism?
  •  Living Shamanically- what does it mean?
  • Modern life and Shamanism. What does it mean to be a Shaman?

Goddesses of the Land and Season Workshop

Eurythmy Studio in Ruskin Mill, Nailsworth,  Gloucestershire.

Saturday 17th September 2016 – 10am till 4.30pm (hour break for lunch in the Mill’s Cafe) 

Did you know there are many Goddesses? It is said that there is a Goddess inside of us all!  She is the great feminine that resides within us (this includes the chaps).  Goddesses embrace the archetype of the feminine, all of whom embrace a different facet of the complexities of the feminine.  However there are many who hold their domain in myth and legend who show their prowess often through defined actions of love, war, creativity, fertility, cunning and wisdom.  All of whom teach about the wondrous energy and cycle of the feminine from maiden to crone, from lover to witch.

gworkshopTheir stories, their essence speaks to our psyche and shows us the very energy that either resonates with us, or that we crave for. All of which potentially teaches us about ourselves, how to know and love ourselves at a deeper level and perhaps  even make peace with our inner feminine so we can celebrate our inner Goddess!

Much has been written about the Greek, Roman and Egyptian goddesses, thankfully, Northern European folklore is rich with its own goddesses; many of whom are celebrated and associated with the seasons and seasonal festivities.  This makes a powerful combination between the Goddess expression and Mother Nature herself.  As we tap into this great wisdom and deep connection we stir within us our own connection to the cycles of nature and to our own cycles and understand where we are on this ever changing journey of life and allow our inner Goddess to speak to us.

In 2015, I had the great joy of meeting Nicola Clark, Professional Artist, who has developed 8 incredible oil paintings each depicting the 8 Celtic Goddesses associated with the 8 Fire and Solar Festivals  of the year marking the turning point of the seasons and year.  These paintings embrace these Goddesses, their seasonal expression and their message.  Nicola has kindly agreed to allow the paintings to be used as a central theme and inspiration for exploring each Goddess and her message.

This is an invitation to the very first of Goddesses of Land and Season, being held this Autumn where we will be working with Goddess Banbe at the Full Moon of the Equinox.  She embodies the celebration of the Harvest and Abundance.  As every Goddess she also has her shadow side, for Banbe; it is the cool finger tips of winter looming ahead, she offers great wisdom for the road ahead.  By connecting with the season and elements associated with it we can potentially access great wisdom and receive personal insight to support us by connecting with our own inner Goddess.

The day will include:

  • Understand the nature of the season and it’s messages
  • Understand the Goddess of this Season
  • Undertake a Shamanic Journey to find the messages and meanings for ourselves
  • Consolidating the experience and insights for going forwards.

Cost £60 per person. Contact Pathwayfinder@mail.com

 Lady Moon, lights our nights, pulls our tides and is the focus of many a tall tale.  Her gentle silvery light does something magical to all of us when we gaze upon her face.  The cycles of the moon are constantly changing, constantly dancing, with the stars and the Zodiac.  Her rhythms though sit firmly with the earth and call particularly to the feminine within.  So what better time to connect with this feminine energy then at the full moon? Get in touch with your subtle subconscious to explore what influences are present at the time, connecting and reflecting what they mean for us generally and personally for us in our lives.  These changing times that we live in can be difficult to navigate, the rhythms of the skies are like marker points and punctuation to the shifts which are occurring.

These workshops are most likely to include, discussion, meditation and Shamanic Journeying to deepen this experience.

Dreaming a New Dream – Finding a New Future for and with Our Planet.

This talk will explore among other things the ecology of being, the ecology of change and becoming and being the change one wants to see in the world.

Looking to the future to find the future from the future about the future. Sustainability as you may never have thought of it before!

Tonight will explore how instead of looking at the problems of the past and perhaps making even greater mistakes by trying to correct them, we can see the opportunities the future has in store for us all and thereby find new ways to be, to think, to do, to change, to arrange ourselves to receive and shape the future instead of facing the future with the prison/s of the past.

The possibilities of the future are as infinite and limitless as the Universe itself if we can find together what the future might have in mind for us rather than what we have in mind for the future.

Therefore if you are interested in finding a new, shared vision of the future then come and join us for a fascinating research into how what hasn’t happened yet can help what has!

It promises to be a mind changing evening.

Tanya Adams is a Shamanic Practitioner who works with individuals and groups to access their own inner wisdom and connect with the natural world.  She is also an experienced Town and Transport Planner, Energy Advisor and Community Sustainability Advisor.

Tony Kearney is an educator, trainer, facilitator, mediator, farmer, environmentalist and published author. (Who Owns the Future?, Boo! and The Tao of Awe.)  He travels widely from his home in Ireland facilitating events to do with personal and planetary change.
