awakening the awenydd – welsh shamanism (1 year course)

In Welsh shamanic practice there were no sacred texts or books of dogma handed down to each generation. Our Ancestors knew the cycle of the Earth by reading nature. They understood that we all are nature, not just a species with no connection to the elements.

The Awenyddiau are calling to those whose hearts are yearning for freedom, justice and balance in the world. They offer to inspire us to once more connect to the web of life, remembering our inter-connectedness with all of life. Our connection to the Earth is our source of hope and strength. Let us re-connect and renew in these changing times using the turn of the seasons to listen to the Awenyddiau.


Using various shamanic methodologies we will explore the practices of Wales, giving an opportunity to dream with the Ancestors and Descendants of this land. The work will be undertaken in Abergavenny and in Welsh woodland (weather permitting)

Venue: Abergavenny Natural Therapy Centre (non residential)

Fee: £599  (Some bursary places available)  

The course will take place over four weekends through the year.  Next start date September 2018.

It is a prerequisite for the year course that you have undertaken the Awendydd Intro day or an Intro to Shamanism weekend with Maxine.
