Welcome to The Way of the Buzzard, our shamanic presence in the north of England and beyond. We are Jason and Nicola, and we have created The Way of the Buzzard as a way to gather a community of like minded people who are interested in British Shamanism as a way of life.

This website follows the three core strands of shamanism; care of ourselves on our individual paths, care of our community and care of the Earth. Here you will find information about shamanism and our approach to the indigenous ways, regular articles and book reviews, and information about Earth care. Our passion is to re-learn the British way of shamanism, of our land, through connecting in with our guides and teachers, and working with the Sidhe Realm and Otherworlds to help restore balance back here on Earth.

We run regular shamanic drumming circles around the northwest of England, as well as day workshops, weekend retreats, both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, and a shamanic festival retreat, Space to Emerge.

As well as our group events we work with people on a one-to-one basis through shamanic healing sessions, including the traditional soul healing work of soul retrieval, soul exchange, extraction, psyco-pomping, depossession and curse unravelling, as well as past life work and ancestral healing.

We also make shamanic drums and other sacred tools, and run drum making workshops.

You can keep up to date with our happenings through our blogs and by signing up to our newsletter. You can also find us on Facebook. Also if you are interested in formal ceremonies then we have another website Journey Well Ceremonies which you might like to visit too.

Thank you for taking time to visit our website. We would love to hear from you and see you at one of our circles, workshops, retreats or ceremonies.
