LIFE’S GREAT JOURNEY takes us around the wheel to the South to ‘erase personal history’, retrieve our energy from past trauma; to the West to face death and make death an ally and not an enemy; to the North to “Stop the world”, to recognise the world as an energy phenomenon; to the East to clarify the steps to attain self mastery – and thereby life mastery. This is the map of the Great multi-lifetime journey we are all on whether we like it or not!
Module 2 (West) Daring to live your fullest with Leo Rutherford & Howard Malpas.
Mother Earth / Inner Wellness / Aging – Becoming an old person or an Elder.
This module is focussed on the Earth and our connection to everything physical – in other words, every THING! This includes our own body which is our spirit’s ‘Vehicle of-Experience’ for this life on earth.
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.
Module 3 – East, Early 2022. With Leo Rutherford & Howard Malpas.
East is the realm of fire, of Grandfather Sun, of the fires of Planet Earth, and the fire in the belly of each of us.
East is also the realm of the Magical Child part of us that knows no past and no future, is always in the NOW, is fully ‘being’ – and not ‘doing’.
The function of the Northeast is to make certain that all the voices are heard and to call for the vitality and the energy of enthusiasm among the people.

A woman dancer wrote to me of her experience at one of my workshops:
“I remember nothing of the trance dance and was quite surprised when my friend told me i had danced for a long time (over a hour). I thought it was only two minutes. I now realise I was dancing the abuse out, no wonder my head was burning. No wonder i was excited. I knew the
next day was going to be even more amazing!!
To help people connect their inner and outer worlds, to heal old wounds within, to enable us to bring dreams from the world of spirit into matter and thus enjoy a creative and fruitful life, to ‘dance their dreams awake’.

Maps of the Universe
When we go somewhere new, the first thing we usually do is check a map to help in plotting our course. But have you ever had a map of life? I didn’t until I discovered the Medicine Wheel – and what an extraordinary blessing it has been!
