Awakening to a Different Way
We, Nicola & Jason Smalley here at The Way of the Buzzard, have worked together over the last five years, supporting thousands of spiritual seekers in deepening their spiritual connection, helping them to grow, develop, learn and love life more deeply.
If you are drawn to shamanism, or you want to develop an ongoing relationship with your Spirit Guides, and connect with nature on a deep level, then we may be able to help you too.

Jason and Nicola Smalley are Shamanic Practitioners living on the edge of the West Pennine Moors in the northwest of England.
For the past twenty years they have been individually seeking a way to get their spiritual connection that is aligned with their core beliefs and values.
This search led them to discovering shamanism, and ultimately to each other and creating The Way of the Buzzard as their voice into the World.
Over the past five years they have taught thousands of people the power of shamanic journeying and nature connection.
They support others in their healing journey to find their purpose and find their path through online courses, retreats, ceremonies, one-to-one sessions and monthly circles.
When they aren’t working, they can both be found roaming the local moorland, woodlands and meadows, Jason with his camera and Nicola riding a horse.
Their passion is anything connected to nature and the mysteries of the Earth.
Working With The Way of The Buzzard:
"A wonderful experience of support and stories woven around your own drums birth. Our small band of souls from all walks of life, working merrily as our drums took shape, under Nicola and Jason's calm instruction.
The song of my drum crafted on this day has a wonderful resonance full of love & laughter. For anyone feeling drawn to this, I'd urge you to take the plunge and bring your drums voice into the world" Drum Birthing Participant
"Nicola and Jason approach all their work with extraordinary levels of care, passion and integrity. At Space to Emerge I loved the variety of inspiring activities, the group ceremonies and the easy atmosphere that made a gathering of strangers into a company of friends.
I left feeling hopeful and uplifted, and I still carry with me the magic of that communion both with nature and with all those who shared that beautiful space”. Space to Emerge Participant
“The Born Free course opens up a new and exciting world for those new to the path but full of insights and information to those who are already walking it.
It is a supportive environment to learn Shamanic techniques, teachings and knowledge along with other like minded folk with wonderfully down to earth teachers who share their experiences with a refreshing honesty and humility while remaining true to their own authenticity”. Born Free Participant
