A course for women. The aim of this course is to teach the contemporary use of the Shamanic drum journey for yourself and others. We will be working with the gift of the drum journey and will work in-depth with the practise of journeying with a hand held drum. The journey drum is often known as the Shaman’s horse, which enables us to ride the resonances of the drum to places deep within our energy being and connection, where we are able to communicate with, receive from and affect the energies of our lives.

Dawn, Lorraine and Leo Thank you again, you are so good, and you are beautiful and big-hearted, working with you is a joy.
What a wonderful weekend, thank you! I think the work you do, the medicine you share, is so precious.
Thanks for the amazing weekend. This morning I have abandoned all my marking and written up my journeys. Sunday’s dance was incredible as I went to so many different worlds including the fairie one, where I’ve never been before! They were all dancing there. You and Dawn did a wonderful job and everyone seemed to get what they needed.
Dawn and Lorraine I had a wonderful time with you both and all the women who came; the weekend was a great catalyst for movement and insight that will, no doubt, continue ringing bells for all of us for a long time to come. I especially loved the singing and drums and ceremony! With all my thanks
Dear Leo While it is still so fresh in my heart and mind, I wanted to say one more ‘thank you’ for such an incredible journey of discovery last weekend. After sharing in one of your sweatlodge ceremonies, I had no doubt that there would come along another opportunity to work with you…as with all things of nature, the time arrived! Reading the workbook is extending the experience and there have certainly been a few curve balls to navigate since! It really was an honour to be in such a space with …
Dear Leo, Lorraine and Dawn I would like to say that it was such a pleasure meeting you all and working with you during the Earth Child retreat. It has been frequently in my thoughts since, and I feel it has been a very important step forward for me on my path. I thought you all worked so beautifully together and I gained something very special from each of you. I cannot tell you how touched I felt for your efforts to help me through difficult moments and assisting me in seeing things that I wa…
Hi guys, what a superb – although challenging week-end, so I thank you all. Till next time….
My experience working with Dawn and Lorraine way surpassed my expectations. This was deeply healing, meaningful and transformational work held in a beautiful space of loving gentleness. Both Dawn and Lorraine bring wisdom, experience and massive love to all that they do. I feel truly blessed to have been part of their wonderful journey. This work will stay with me forever.
To the Wonderfully Wyrd Witches and Wizard of Eagle’s Wing I just wanted to say how much I really enjoyed and appreciated the mixture of your medicines, it worked for me! I had been lost lately, wondering in the wilderness and the weekend brought me back to myself. I feel a bit like the prodigal daughter but now I,ve found my way home again thank you. The way you hold space with such integrity, skill and respect is inspirational and i love the way you all honour and serve the medicine in your …
I did the Earth Child Workshop with Dawn, Lorraine and Leo in July 2011. It made me look at aspects of myself and my behaviour that I hadn’t before, and I discovered unexpected answers in unexpected places. Since the course ended, I have felt much more happy with who I am and where I’m going with my life. I have much more confidence in myself, as well as more compassion when I’m not feeling so great. I would definitely recommend this workshop if you have long-standing issues/ fears that you hav…
I call the work contemporary shamanism because whilst it is based on the teaching of the ancient shamans – the “wise ones” and visionaries of the old cultures – it is nevertheless modern in approach and deals with the issues and difficulties of contemporary life. Shamanism has always been a non-dogmatic, adaptable set of philosophies, attitudes and pragmatic solutions as it has always responded to the needs of the people of the time.
Shamanism is a path to wisdom which is gained through experience of many facets of life, through rituals, ceremonies, prayer and meditation, trials and tests. It is not a belief system, it is a way of knowledge – that which is known from inside – that which stands up to tests and to the test of time, something that is proven to work, unlike beliefs which are something taken on from outside and not personally tested in the laboratory of life.
