WHAT IS SACRED ACTIVISM?
We live in a time when our world needs compassionate healing and wise support, the way we are treating each other and the natural world as a society is not sustainable, so what can we in the spiritual community do to help?
This work of “sacred activism” using ceremony and shamanic methods helps us deepen into an earth-centered way of looking at issues that we are collectively facing and to find solutions from a spiritual perspective.
We do this in a considered and ethical way in partnership with spirit so that we are clear our actions support all life. I see shamanism offering new hope and vision for individuals as well as our society as a whole for as we change everything around us changes also, it does not seem possible to have one without the other.
The purpose of these events is to find inspiration for us to act, to bring healing and transformation, as well as creating a community that supports us. Each of the events below brings us deeper into a sacred relationship with ourselves as an expression of nature. From this place of personal insight, we hold a vision for what can become and offer this out to manifest.
No experience is needed, your open heart and mind with a willingness are all you are asked to bring. All events can be attended in person or participated at a distance and all events are free to attend;
please contact me for further information.

“There is no better “manager” of nature than nature itself”
In “Natures Sovereignty” we drop into a deeper level of connection with ourselves as part of the natural world. If we can gain experience of ourselves as nature that we are off the earth itself, related and connected with all life, what kind of world would that be?
This has been a lived experience for humans many eons ago, however, if our kind has lived this in the past then this wisdom exists within us today, and may well be the power that is leading many at this time and in so many ways to seek and live this again.
This event is an opening to experience this homecoming though not as it was for our ancient ancestors but drawing on the power of their inherent wisdom we use this to guide us to our own connection effective for now and our modern world within the sanctuary of our wild and free nature.
How do we experience ourselves as nature as one with the earth? How do we live our everyday life as nature in the times that we live in? How can we serve ourselves and our communities from this place? Who am I when in my power? These questions and many more are explored in this ongoing journey of homecoming.
VIGILS OF THE EARTH
Summer Solstice details to be announced soon
These ceremonies are held over 24 hours, start in the evening at 7pm and work through to the following evening you are invited to attend for the whole duration of this or for a part of this time.
We work with the energy of the time of year and traditional ways for this time as we step deeper into becoming nature. Following our Celtic ancestors, we work with the Autumn Equinox, where we honor and work with the element of Water, Winter Solstice with Earth, the Spring Equinox with Air and Summer Solstice with Fire completing the circle of the year.
We spend our time in ceremony and practice, with the drum song and with movement, as well as time out on the land, as we follow the flow of the ceremony as it leads us into a traditional and natural way and time of the year in nature’s world.
Dates are generally around the solstice and equinox time please contact for details and practicalities.
Upcoming dates Thursday 28th March 2019 7pm
The world of the beehive is described as a “superorganism” where each individual bee works for the collective group of bees. Shamanic cultures understand this wisdom for humans and we have much to learn from the bees as a result.
This ceremony both honors the Bee and how they shape our world as well as opening us to seek learning from the Bees. We use shamanic methods to develop a partnership with the spirit of the Bees where their wisdom is gifted in how we can develop our own mind of the hive moving into a more connected and the relationship of integrity with all life.
PRAYER AND VISIONING CIRCLES
Upcoming Dates Friday 1st March 2019 at 7pm
“Once something is held in our thoughts and then spoken it exists”
We can so often be fed in our everyday negative and violent images and words that it has almost become normal. This work within this dedicated circle brings a balance and challenge to this hypnosis.
The action of prayer opens the way for new possibilities, a place we can express gratitude and find hope for a way of life that is in harmony and with power. Holding a vision for a world that upholds peace, respect and compassion for all life is a important practice for the times we live in.
Working in an intentional and sacred circle with the support of spirit and our companions brings power to our prayers and vision for our world. Holding a deep silence with this focus we bring through our desires and hopes for this way and give a voice for the world we wish to live in both for ourselves our families, communities and the generations yet to come.
This simple practice brings a new hope into the world and supports us so we have the courage to live this in our own lives and be the very change we wish for in the world.
