She is a very fine practitioner embodying the work in all its fullness and colour ”  Naomi Lewis – Founder, The School of Animal Spirit Medicine

“The introduction to shamanism with Maxine was a beautiful experience. I have done a few. Shamanic courses that have been really good. Maxine’s approach was by far the most explorative and informative shamanic introduction where I learned a world more on the beauty of this wise and loving tradition. Maxine shares a wealth of knowledge and emanates so much love, the essence of who we are. I would really love to explore more of the shamanic traditions with Maxine.” Siobhan Swider – 2019 course attendee

“I did the Introduction to Shamanism course this year with Maxine. It helped to deepen my insight greater,  into doing a full one year practical course with Maxine. A one year course will give me the support and guidance, as well as the gifts, of journeying and all that shamanism is, and how I can use it in my every day to day life and moving forward, deepening my connection with nature and how I am interconnected in this web of life.  Maxine has a warm, loving approach steeped in her teachings and is deeply connected to her teachings. This shines through her” Christley Jones, 2019 course attendee

“I am now able to relate more consciously, to release old patterns of behaviour, and to live with greater ease. This healing has catalysed more integration within my self and without, affecting those I am with, and the environment in which I exist.”  Clare Parry-Jones

“I have attended several of Maxine’s courses, all of which have deepened my knowledge of Shamanism. The Practical Shamanism Course gave me a greater insight into Shamanism and it’s practices. But, it’s the Three Year Shamanic Healing Practitioner Training that has really taken me by surprise. I have finished the first year of the course and I’m eagerly awaiting the start of the second year. Working with Maxine is life changing: your life will change! I can tell you this from my own personal experiences. Yes, we go through Death and Re-birth, this is the Way of the Shaman, to shed layers of our in-authentic self. But as we heal ourselves, with Maxine as our guide: our connection to our true self and Spirit grows. ”  Gary Evans
