The Winter Wander Series


A snowy path in winter with sunset light

Shamanism Fundementals Part 2 starts on Wednesday 20th January 2016 and runs for six weeks, finishing Wednesday 17th February, 7.30pm – 10pm in Stockport



The Winter Wander Series is a collection of shamanic teaching workshops running through the dark months of the year. Winter is a time when we are drawing in and can spend time deepening into our spiritual practices during the long nights – a time of study and reflection. These sessions are designed for people who:

  • Are spiritually seeking and haven’t found their spiritual home yet
  • Have recently come across shamanism and want to learn more about it
  • Are already firmly on the Earth path but want to expand their knowledge into the shamanic traditions
  • Are looking for something different but can’t quite put their finger on what it is

The Winter Wander Series will run on Wednesday evenings at the Friends Meeting House in Stockport in six weekly blocks, from 7.30pm to 10pm. Part 1 starts in November and programme 2 in January. It is not necessary to complete Part 1 in order to take part in Part 2, but you will need to be familiar with shamanic journeying if you are starting with Part 2.

It’s not necessary to do every session – you can dip in and out as you wish. However the programme has been designed to take you on a journey and build on your learning each week so you will get most benefit from attending all six sessions.



The cost is £60 for the six-week programme. If you would you would like to come to just individual sessions then the cost is £15 per session. Spaces are limited and priority will be given to people who book for all six sessions.

Within each session we will cover both theory and practice, as well as providing an optional reading list and optional homework, which you can complete depending on how deep you wish to take your experience.



We will be running the programme from The Friends Meeting House, Cooper Street, Stockport SK1 3QL


Shamanism Fundamentals Part 2
20th Jan, 27th Jan, 3rd Feb, 10th Feb, 17th Feb 2016, 7.30pm start

Pre-requisites to taking part

It is not necessary to have attended Shamanism Fundamentals 1 in order to attend this programme. However, you will need to be familiar with shamanic journeying.


Week 1: Tree Spirit Medicine
Wednesday 20th January 2016, 7.30pm

In this first session of Programme 2 we will be working with the healing energies of Trees. Each tree has a special quality which we can draw upon to bring about healing in our lives. We will revisit the Celtic wheel of the year and the trees which sit at each festival, before going on a journey together to work with the energy of Willow. We will end the evening by crafting a willow sacred tool to help us connect in with our intuition.


Week 2: Protecting yourself
Wednesday 27th January 2016, 7.3pm

When we work with the other realms its important that we protect ourselves. During this session we will journey to create our own Power Stack, a tired and tested method of gathering our guides around us each day to protect us in our work.



Week 3: Working with the Old Gods
Wednesday 3rd February 2016, 7.30pm

In cultures all across the world there is a belief in multiple gods, as it was here in Britain before Christianity required everyone to believe in just one god. These deities are still there for us to call upon and work with if we wish to. During this session we will journey to one of the old Celtic gods or goddesses, which every is drawn to work with us at this time.


Week 4: Working with the Sidhe
Wednesday 10th February 2016, 7.30pm

The Sidhe is the Celtic word for the Faeries. Only a few hundred years ago working with the Sidhe realm was part of every day life, but over recent centuries things have changed considerably, to our detriment. Our work is to find a way to weave our two realms back together again, and we can take our first steps by journeying to meet a Faerie Guardian or Gate Keeper during this evening together.



Week 5: Working with Ley Lines
Wednesday 17th February 2016, 7.30pm

The Earth energy lines which map their way across our land are well documented now, following research by many dedicated people over recent decades. In this session we talk about the theory underpinning ley lines, and how we might work with these earth energies in our shamanic practice. The evening will include a shamanic journey to an ancient sacred site and connect in with the energies and wisdom held there.


Week 6: Medicine for the Earth
Wednesday 24th February 2016, 7.30pm

In this last session together we will turn our attention outwards to how we can work shamanically to help heal the Earth. We will draw on information we have learnt over the course of the six week programme, and close with an earth healing ceremony focused on the element of Water.

Participants will need to have an experience of shamanism in order to join in on this course.
