I am happy to teach one at a time but am also able to teach up to four people in one workshop here at my home.   I also offer the opportunity to book a drum making workshop in your location.  You need to have at least four participants and a space in which there are tables with enough room for each person to have about a meter square (or a bit less) of table space.

Rattle Making Workshop

Make a rattle to your own design or copy one of mine.  Working with deer skin, wood or antler handle and stones gathered from either the land here, a Dartmoor Stream, the Devon coast or stones that you bring with you. 

The workshops run from 10am until we have finished (this is usually around 3pm) and includes lunch and plenty of tea and cake.   Special diets are no problem.   I can run a workshop just for you or for up to 6 people here or more in a hall near here.  Equally I can easily bring this workshop to a table top near you.  If the rattles need to be made in one day then we need access to an oven but if it's to be done as a two day drum and rattle making workshop then the rattles can dry overnight. Please contact me for more details. 

Cost £95.00

Living Shamanism - Sacred Path 

This series of workshops is an investment in your own connection with the spirits around you: Living shamanism brings to you a clear purpose to improve your life and that of all who share it with you, the human and the other-than-human. The joint aims are clarity and facility: Clarity, in this case, means that this work is designed to help each participant find their authentic and clear connection with the wise and compassionate beings behind the veil and a direct connection with those spirits who are here with us - the denizens of the land. Facility means that part of the focus of the on-going work is to facilitate the embodiment of what begins as 'workshop experiences' into your ordinary reality.  

With thoroughness and integrity we will explore shamanism in both ordinary and non-ordinary reality, learning and experiencing with all aspects of our being. Some of the work will take place outside (quite possibly in all weathers - this is Dartmoor!) and some will be directed voyages of discovery among the spirits, through healing practices, rituals, celebrations, songs and dances. I will offer you a reading list, ask you to undertake a small amount of 'homework' between the meetings and be available to you to answer questions as you deepen into your practice. We will step outside of time and gather to us the wisdom of lifetimes.  

More details of this can be found on the Living Shamanism page. 


Shamanic Gnosis

This workshop will explore the question 'Who Am I?' at deep and soul-nourishing levels. Using a variety of tools, including the shamanic journey, we will explore what it means to be human in our broken world, who we re really and what we may be here to do. We will be working betwix and between with spirit mentors and allies.  This workshop presumes that you have some basic experience of Shamanic Journeying.  

Please bring outdoor clothes suitable for an anyweather Dartmoor day - we will spend some time outdoors come what may! 

Saturday 17th September 10 - 4.   Venue to be confirmed. Please contact me for more details. 

Cost £75.00 

Please bring lunch to share, snacks and hot drinks will be provided. 


Distance Training in Shamanism 

I am now offering a 9 month training in Shamanism via Skype, telephone and e-mail.  Please contact me either by e-mail ( or phone (01647 277164) for further details.  The  training will begin with a one day workshop here in my home. During this we find out where you are and make a plan to take you deeply in whichever direction it is you wish to pursue shamanism.  During this initial day you learn to undertake the classical shamanic journey, finding the liminal locations that allow travel between this world and the other.  You meet your Spirit Allies and start to learn to understand the metaphorical language through which they communicate. After this one day together the work continues at a distance. You will learn, amongst other things, the hows and whys of Shamanic Healing, both for ourselves and for others - including the extraction of spirit intrusions, soul retrieval, power animal retrieval. Also unravelling curses, working within family bloodlines and work with the dying and the already dead.  We will also work deeply with the Spirits of The Land and nature, venturing into Plant Spirit Medicine and geomancy.  This is just the beginning.

The initial day together costs £150 and then the ongoing training is £90 per month. As a broad outline I would expect to speak to you by phone or skype for about an hour every two weeks and for you to undertake 'homework' of varying types from journeying, healing ceremonies, creative exercises and e-mail reports. 

 Please do contact me for more details if you're interested.

I prefer to teach drum making one to one as I believe that you get a better drum this way.  I would like you to go home with a drum just as good as the one I would make for you. 
Phone or e-mail to arrange one at a date convenient to you.
