Spring into Life: Friday 8th – Sunday 10th April 2016


Weekend shamanic workshop in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire.

We are really excited to be running this workshop in a beautiful cottage in the even more beautiful Roburndale, set in 250 acres of ancient woodland on an organic farm nestled in the Forest of Bowland. We hold this land very close in our hearts as it is where we first met and fell in love.

The essence of the weekend is to use the spring energies to more fully embrace our life here on Earth. During the first part of the weekend we will clear what stands in our way from walking in the shamanic path more fully. Then we will draw on the spring energies of growth and energy to help us step into our power to go forward into life more fully with shamanism at its core.

Up to ten of us will live as a community in the beautiful cottage for this weekend, under the shade of the woodland with views across the river. During the daytime we will be based in our bell tent in the meadow which we will share with the herons and deer, as well as venturing into the wildness of the wood. At night time we will retreat to the fireside.



This retreat is designed to help participants:

  • Seek guidance from the other realms and connect with nature to gather insights to support you on your path
  • Build on your shamanic tool kit
  • Clear what no longer serves
  • Embrace the creative energies of spring to help us step into our power to go forward into life more fully with shamanism at its core
  • Reflect on the world we live in and your place within it

Together in our little community we will drum, chant, journey, heal, retreat, reflect, clear, create and inspire.

No experience of shamanism is necessary.
