What is a Medicine Wheel?

A medicine wheel is a concept in many cultures and spiritual lineages used as a map to orient oneself, bring balance to our well-being, and fully experience & align with each phase in the cyclical nature of all processes in life. It is a richly personal way of viewing the world, our lives, the challenges and blessings we encounter, and holds a wealth of information and medicinal aspects that can be applied to any situation. Based on the natural ebb and flow of the seasons, your wheel incorporates cycle teachings, the elements, archetypes, the deities & spirit guides you work with, and associated energies and qualities into a cohesive tool that is tailored to your own interests, cultural heritage, and lands that you live on.

Meet your facilitator

As a bean feasa living in Powell River BC, I work with the medicines within the land of this beautiful traditional Coast Salish Territory as well as the traditions of my Scottish and Irish ancestors.

People come to me for personal healing work, to attend ceremonies, and to establish an animistic, earth-centered, westernized 'shamanic' way of living. Online supports for your spiritual practice through videos, audio recordings, magazine articles, and discussion groups are also available.

My journey into 'shamanic' practice began in 2007 with an intensive 3 year practitioner apprenticeship within a Celtic lineage. By January 2013 I was offering community gatherings, workshops, and monthly journey circles in both Squamish and North Vancouver BC. 2015 saw a small focus group be created called "Shamanic Living", then I expanded my training with Sandra Ingerman's two Shamanic Teacher courses before the focus group evolved into two, full year long immersion programs - the "Shamanic Living Immersion" and "Shamanic Medicine Ways program". In 2019, in consideration for the origins of the word "shamanism", these programs were merged into a two year offering and re-named as the "Return to Reverence Immersion"

The online guided programs and self-paced courses that you find here are my response to growing interest outside of my region and to accommodate community members who have been unable to attend these programs, workshops and events due to distance or timing.

I hope you will find supportive teachings, guidance in reclaiming your cultural heritage, and a deeper sense of connection with the natural world, the spirit realms, and to yourself within these offerings.
