Medicine for the Earth – Booking

Medicine for the Earth Residential Course

The Earth is calling out for the human race to remember and respect the connection we have with all of life and so it is with great delight that Shamanic Life offers the renowned work of Sandra Ingerman, Medicine for the Earth, in a five-day self-catering residential course, 13-17 June 2024, Olchon Valley.

Held over five days we will learn grounded practices and hold ceremonies in community with each other using drumming, singing and working with the elements to re-connect with ourselves and the Earth.

New dates for 2024

The workshop is for five days, 4 nights, starting at 6pm on Thursday 13 June 2024, ending on Monday 17 June 2pm. 

Our teaching days will be 10am – 1pm and 3pm-6pm, with ceremonies each evening, from 7.30pm-9pm. We will be working in the main yurt and in the woodlands.


This will be our second year facilitating Medicine for the Earth residentially; we had searched for some time to find a space that resonates and weaves easily with the Medicine for the Earth course material. We were so excited when we found Olchon Valley Campsite! This is a part of the world where the valley sings with beautiful meadows and woodlands that are and hugged by rugged hills. It is easy to feel the pulse of the earth here.

The campsite itself is on a traditional hill sheep farm in the Black Mountains, on the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park on the border between England and Wales, UK. At over 1,000 feet above sea level, it offers a peaceful, rural site in an area of stunning scenery with spectacular, dark night skies. The site is strongly committed to ensuring that visitors ‘tread lightly’ on the natural environment and is ‘off grid’ with electric hook ups in communal space only to allow people to switch off from technology and immerse themselves in the land.
