Return to Reverence Year 1

cultivate spiritual practice, reclaim forgotten cultural traditions, & align with natural cycles

Living a balanced, soul-filled, connected life is not just possible for us all ~ it's our Birthright

Your spiritual practice should resonate as intrinsically authentic to your heart and mind. For many, this means sifting and sorting until ways of connecting and honouring "make sense", "sit well" and become easily incorporated into day-to-day life. If you crave a personalized spiritual practice that suites your needs and inherent gifts, or wish for an arena to explore which practices are meaningful to you - I invite you to have a look at the Return to Reverence Immersion and spend a year (or two!) cultivating spiritual and energetic care within a supportive community who aim to live in harmony with the cycles of nature.

  • Immerse yourself into spiritual practice as a way of being, a non-religious, animistic connected way of living
  • Explore the medicine of consciously moving through the wheel of the seasons, the moon, your cultural heritage and of your body
  • Experience monthly journey circles, specific workshops, and tend to deep personal solo work in a formal comprehensive process
  • Receive one on one soul restoration and consultation sessions
  • Connect with direct access to "hidden" support and wisdom, facilitate mindfulness, and greater life purpose
  • Establish a routine of energetic & spiritual care and maintenance
  • Develop your relationship with the land you live on, bringing balance & healing to yourself, your community and the earth
  • Discover traditions from your cultural heritage and learn how to bring them into your practice
  • Engage in online guidance and support
  • Cultivate the discipline  necessary to co-create your life, bringing internal healing work out into ordinary life
  • Stay connected to a variety of lower mainland opportunities - labyrinth walks, spiritual teachings, sweat lodges, rites of passage and more

The aim of the Return to Reverence Immersion is to no longer live a life being buffeted about by inherited challenges or unobserved unhelpful patterns, no longer feeling alone, separated and confused but supported, connected and in commune with the Divine and the natural world around you. By establishing a greater connection to the land and the natural rhythms of the world we live in, by increasing our energetic awareness and mindfulness, experiencing direct divine personal guidance and healing, we bring healing not only to ourselves, but answer the call to support the Earth and our global human tribe.

*Please note* 
Changes are afoot for the in-person program as we shift from monthly gatherings to 4 immersive weekend retreats in Powell River, BC to run in tandem with the online learning component. Registration will re-open June 2020.
- I am in the process of re-writing this program to no longer rely so heavily on the use of the words "shamanism" and "shamanic" which includes changing the name of the immersion program all together. I thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition and where discrepancies may still be found.

About the facilitator

As a bean feasa living in Powell River BC, I work with the medicines of the beautiful unceded Coast Salish lands that I am blessed to live on, 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, 'shamanic' way of living. Online supports for your spiritual practice through videos, audio recordings, magazine articles, and discussion groups, plus soul restoration sessions, readings, and in-person medicine gatherings are also available.

My journey into 'shamanic' practice began in 2007 with an intensive 3 year practitioner apprenticeship within a Celtic lineage. By 2013 I was offering community gatherings, workshops, and monthly journey circles in Squamish and North Vancouver BC. I expanded my training in 2015 with Sandra Ingerman's Teacher courses, and a small, established focus group that had organically formed, evolved into a full 2 year Immersion program - Return to Reverence. (formerly the Shamanic Living Immersion) In 2017, with the support of our community, I brought a healing retreat cottage and studio "The Sanctuary" into being on the Upper Sunshine Coast of BC. By 2019 The Sanctuary become our permanent residence and I moved my practice fully to Powell River.

The online programs and courses you find here are my response to growing community requests, to more fully accommodate long distance interest, better suit various commitment levels, and become more accessible to those with time or financial constraints.
