“A fully embraced Shamanic practice will completely change your life, if you are ready to step up and reach out.”
Caught in the spiral of a busy life, knowing there is more out there for you but can’t quite get to it?
Are there aspects of your life which aren’t right, giving you a feeling of ‘being stuck’, not knowing what changes you need to make or how to make them in order to move on?
Does this ring true right now?
What if we told you it doesn’t have to be this way? There is a path waiting for you, where you can access deep wisdom and find ways to move through to a place full of deep fulfillment with plenty of space and time to do what is most important to you.
It has worked for us and we are really excited about the opportunity of sharing it with you, so you can look back at this next period in your life with the greatest sense of achievement.
What Get’s In Our Way?
When we are in this place of feeling blocked, it’s not through lack of trying to move forward. We so often don’t know what to do to break through, who to turn to, and we can procrastinate for a long time before we do take a step, sometimes for years, filled with fear and anxiety.
We also often think that we are the only ones who feel like this, that we are alone in the world with these opinions and experiences, and that everyone else seems to be coping just fine.
We read books, go on workshops, reach out to people and try all manner of things to shift ourselves but the change just doesn’t seem to happen.
Our Big Difference
In our online BORN FREE training course, we use the principles, tools and techniques of Core Shamanism to guide you in working through these blocks. This enables you to identify the changes that you need to make and empower you to see them through.
Rather than it being a course just about shamanism, it’s about the application of shamanic practice in your life.
In addition to covering Core Shamanic principles we go deeper by bring in a diverse collection of universal tools, weaving in nature connection and the old ways, so it becomes a fuller picture of how we can embody a shamanic life.
In a nutshell, this course is a journey to tackle the core elements that you need to work on in order to craft the life you were born to live.
Here’s How the BORN FREE Course Will Work
The course is made up of four Modules which guide you through the theory and practice of shamanism. Each Module is broken down into a series of lessons delivered by online video.
There will be activities to carry out throughout the course, and plenty of guided shamanic journeys to go on.
You will be a part of an online community of participants who will be sharing the journey with you through a dedicated Born Free Facebook Group.
There are 4 Live Coaching Calls running over a period of 14 weeks, which you can join in on through your computer.
There’s also a 365 Day Money Back Guarantee. If you do the work and find no benefit we’ll give you your money back.

What preparations you need to make in order to embark fully on this journey with a community who are like-minded and share similar beliefs, and can support each other as they grow
Module 2: The Foundation
In this Module you will learn the foundation components of Shamanic Practice which include:
The bigger picture as to why we have lost our connection and the implications this is having on us, our communities and our Earth
How to find our way back to this lost connection, through shamanic journeying, how to journey and why it works, and has worked for us for tens if not hundreds of thousands of years.
The three different realms; Upperworld, Middleworld and Lowerworld

Exploring the Lowerworld and discovering who you can work with there, including Animal Spirit Guides, Power Animals, Ancestors, the Fairy Kingdom and the Gods and the Goddesses of the Lowerworld.
Working in the Middleworld with journeying, nature connection, dreams, synchronicities and aligning with the cycles of the year.
Working with intention, how to set intention and the importance and practice of interpretation.
- How to journey without being guided, and the benefits this will bring you. How to find your Axis Mundi, which is the place where you will journey from each time, how to go about setting your journey intention, journeying safely and working on your journey interpretation skills.
Module 3: Using the Tools to Empower Your Life
In this module you’ll begin to apply the practices learned in the previous lessons through the use of the Life Empowering Toolkit:
The importance of self care in order to welcome in abundance into your life, and how to work with Tree Spirit Medicine to achieve this.
Developing a fresh approach to finding answers by working with Animal Spirit Guides and building a deep and long-lasting relationship with them.
Flowing around blockages that get in your way, or working through a problem you are struggling with. We will do this by practicing the shamanic skill of shapeshifting, working with the element of water.
Reclaiming your power by undertaking the Core Shamanic procedure of a Power Retrieval, and follow this through by making an offering to the Earth.

Module 4: Stepping Out and Going It Alone
In this Module you will learn how to incorporate what you have learnt into a continuous practice so you can step out and continue the journey beyond this course:
Looking back at your time on the Born Free programme, what your original intention was and how far you have come in your journey.
Growing on your path and integrating shamanism into your life, including the importance of community.
Living a shamanic life, and the difference between shamanic practice, a shamanic practitioner, and a shaman. We will also explain the different forms of shamanism: Indigenous Shamanism, Core Shamanism and Contemporary Shamanism.
The importance of ceremony in our lives and how it can help you in your journey ahead. This will include how to create a ceremonial space and perform a ceremony to mark your transition on completing this course.
How to integrate all that you have learnt into your life, and the importance of community in helping you do this.
We’ll also advise on additional resources which includes useful books and magazine subscriptions.
Here are some of the things previous participants of the Born Free course have said:
“I joined the Born Free programme as I wanted to increase my experience of working shamanically. I think I already had the basics but it was nice to realise that as I progressed through the course I could deepen my understanding of practice. I like your integrity and presentation style, and the video delivery format was really useful.
I have come to realise that I do have a connection to nature and spirit and it has increased my confidence to be myself. I am open to ‘signs’ (more aware) and look upon trees with reverence and have passed some knowledge onto my wife and our daughter where they both tried out ‘tree energy’ practice at the Space to Emerge retreat.
I have found the Born Free programme to be effective at developing a way of living authentically by exploring body and spirit that improves and challenges us as people so that we can be more than just ‘consumers’ It has proved to be an oasis of sanity in these insane times.” Mark
“Starting the course made me realise that my life was so full of things (work!) that I didn’t really have the time to do what I need to do to nourish my soul. Throw some other ‘life events’ on top of this and it became impossible to engage.
This realisation was pivotal to me and I called upon my go-to horse energy to carry me out of the situation and towards my real life’s purpose as revealed to me early in the work. Today it manifested in this realm. I was offered my dream job with flexible hours in which I will finally be able to fulfil that purpose: Hospice Nurse. I feel as though I am coming home.
This is It’s SUCH a full and rich course. I can’t believe the value you have both packed into it. It’s been so transformative for me. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart”. Nicola
“Before I found The Way of the Buzzard I had a lot of fear and was a very lost person. I was very confuse about my life and all of the world. I really struggled with communication and wen I looked to find words to express my needs, only tears came.
I was drawn to the Born Free course because I felt ‘inside me’ that it would be beneficial for me in my life right now. Being a part of the programme has helped me in so many ways. I now accept myself and love myself more. I have opened to my feminine side, am more connected to Mother Earth, and I love my connection I have developed with my tree.
One of the greatest benefits is that my family life has improved a lot, and I have a better connection with people. Born Free is a really useful course for people who would like to learn and deepen their experience with shamanism but have a busy life.” Ewa
“I came to Born Free with some experience, however, the teachings of Nicola and Jason still held so much more for me to learn. Those new to the path, whether you wish to step onto it fully or just dip a toe in to see how it feels, will find so many wonderful lessons to help get them started.
Born Free covers a lot of things that other courses neglect, such as how this path interweaves with our physical wellbeing and our place in the world. This all facilitates our spiritual growth as much as learning about the different spirit realms and animal guides which are also covered in detail. You will come back to the lessons time and time again, each fresh viewing revealing new insights and teachings.
You are held in the most wonderful supportive environment by both Nicola and Jason and the other students on the course. Nicola and Jason share their stories as well, both highs and lows, this promotes a wonderfully loving two-way relationship that shows you how you can also step into this journey no matter what your circumstances.” Kym

“It is a way of developing a way of living authentically by exploring our body and mind that improves and challenges us as people and that we can be more than just consumers”
“Thank you for your help to awake my own self”
