Ancient Ways for Now - Self Study

Ancient Ways for Now - Self Study

Our Ancient Ways for Now courses are designed to help you connect into the energies of our seasons, our moon and our daily clock particularly in relation to the place and space where you live.

This page features the on demand self study course which will be available from Samhain 2022, the beginning of the Celtic Wheel of the Year.

Our indigenous shamanism, or spirituality, has been buried under centuries of human ego which has covered up the ancient ways in which we respond to our environment and it’s spirit. ‘Ancient’ implies the past yet also something that has always been there, sitting at the root of us and all that is . . . within and beyond us. With this in mind we will encourage that root to begin to regrow, giving it water and warmth in the form of attention and ceremony, rebuilding that intention into our lives. This self study course will help you to follow how we change as our environment changes - as we sit in the wheel of the sun, the phases of the moon and the hours of the day.

This self study course will be available from Samhain (October) and cover the following seven festivals. Alternatively you can begin at the Winter Solstice or Imbolc - these three festivals are the most appropriate to begin your study. The study pack, which you will receive via email includes details of rituals, ceremonies and practices that are aligned with each festival and it’s corresponding moon phase and time of day or night. You will also receive a small (and intriguing) parcel through the post to help you with your study pack (UK only). There will be optional ceremonies and rituals to perform between each of the festivals involving the corresponding moon phases and day/night patterns. Experience of shamanism is not necessary for this course - it is more your awareness of the space and place where you live that matters.
