The Shaman's Doorway: weekend introductory workshops in 2020

The Shaman's Doorway is a weekend foundational workshop designed to help you open your own doorway to the spirit world. We will introduce you to some of the core methods used in shamanism, and to help you establish your own relationship to them in a safe and grounded way. You will experience and learn to practice the ancient Shamanic path to wholeness and balance. This path leads you towards reclaiming the ancient wisdom within you, and so to your true, authentic power.

The relationships you make with your spirit teacher and spirit animal, through the technique of journeying, are the key to the Doorway. It is suitable both for beginners and for those who want to deepen a link they have already established.

The Shaman's Doorway 2020 dates:
15 - 16 February, London
7 - 8 March, Copenhagen
21 - 22 March, Cornwall
25 - 26 April, Bristol
6 - 7 June, Edinburgh
7 - 8 November, Bristol

21 - 22 November, London


Shamanic workshops and trainings

"The teachings and ceremonies are powerfully transformative whilst always practical and grounded. Chris does not ask us to believe anything, rather to test it for ourselves. The skills and perspectives I have gained via Northern Drum continue to shape my everyday life. Working with the teachings daily, I find I am becoming calmer, stronger and more surely connected to life. I am proud to be part of a group of genuine and courageous people who have become dear friends. It is also great fun!" Katerina Keogan, Artist, Craftswoman

Our shamanic workshops and courses, as well as our Vision Quests, are designed to support you on a journey to know yourself, to stand in your own power and integrity, to heal your wounds and eventually to help others do the same, if you are called to that path. We support you to come into a conscious relationship with all of creation, where you are awake to the magic of life, following your path with love and enjoyment.

The path that these shamanic teachings offer can lead to a true homecoming, a fulfilment of potential, dreams and visions. They can help you find greater harmony with self, with others, and with the world around you.  Read more...
