Shamanics is a form of deep spiritual, personal development and healing, based in nature and developed by Kenneth Meadows. Shamanics is a contemporary distillation of Northern Hemisphere Shaman knowledge (northern European, Amerindian, Hawaiian Kahuna and Doaist) that is based in the common truths held with all of these traditions but without the dogma or ritual. This means that the person who practices Shamanics can do so easily, in any circumstance or location. The teachings are experiential and found to be deeply meaningful for many people.

The one day introductory workshop is a great way to try out some techniques and learn a little about shamanics, its practices and principles and how this is relevant to your daily life. You will end the day with some very useful shamanic techniques to practice on yourself and for others if you choose. On completion of the one day workshop you will be offered the opportunity to join the full time Shamanic Practitioner Course, consisting of twelve workshops held once monthly

Essential items, Please bring to the workshop:

  • • your lunch
  • • a blanket
  • • a cover for your eyes
  • • pen & pad
  • • rattle/drum if you have one

Tea/coffee & biscuits will be available

About Melanie:

Melanie is a mother of three and is also a qualified, practicing homeopath. She has a keen interest in permaculture, sustainable living and the transition towns movement. Melanie says "for me, permaculture and homeopathy are part of how I express my earth walk. Both disciplines are aligned to the principles and practices of shamanics and shamanism. It was during a shamanic journey that I was given the task of learning the application of homeopathy and permaculture, so that I may understand their connections and create a way to use all three combined, in the service of earthcare and peoplecare; hoping to facilitate human healing and inner knowledge so that they may walk lightly and with compassion with each other and on the earth."

Melanie began her shamanic training in 1991 with renowned shaman and international author, Kenneth Meadows. She continued to work with Kenneth until a few weeks before his passing. Andrew Riley wrote "A fellow author and colleague (Leo Rutherford) described the aftermath of one particular ceremony where the author (Kenneth Meadows) was told by an otherworld ally that he would act as a lantern. This spurred him on to write the books, present the workshops and promote his view on shamanism. The books sold and sold and sold.... The flame of the lantern was fanned and became a beacon. I just hope there is someone who can build on this for the next generation" It is Melanie’s aim to be that someone; and it is with Ken’s blessing that she continues to carry the Lantern.
