The Wild Way is at the core of the European magical and shamanic practises.

It is a practical philosophy based upon the embodied understanding that we are children of the Earth and therefore, caregivers, life preservers, wild woods guardians, medicine women and dream weavers.

Nature and the body being living temples through which we honour the Divine within all that is.

Our tribal ancestors viewed the body as an intricate part of Nature and the Human Being as a life preservers and seed spreaders, cultivating Earth as well as Heart.

In this training we will recover the myth of Wild Elen of the pathways, as an Earth pilgrim, storyteller, memory guardian, seed spreader and wild animal protector. As well as doubled faced keeper of the wheel of life: liminal guardian of the warm and luminous half of the year and of the dark and cold half as well. Midwife of Spirit, nourisher and great ripper.

We will, therefore, recover the witches dances in the woods, as a celebration of the Wild Mother and the mysteries of Birth, thriving, decaying, decomposition, renewal and rebirth.

Dance is the language of Nature, and the time of Nature is the time of the Soul, not the time of the world. By working with movement, rhythm and language we create new pathways of relating to ourselves, to others and to Life. Through dancing we learn to hear the unspoken language of Nature as Mother and source, we repair our sense of purpose and belonging.

We will experience the body as a raw, living and powerful expression of Nature, as primal therapy and essential spiritual practice. We will foster our felt sense and develop our capacity to access altered states of consciousness through movement and Nature connection.

Wild Medicine Dance is a training for those wishing to develop their connection with the Body, Mind, Heart, Soul, Earth and all beings. We will work with dance, movement, barefoot walking, vision, creativity, deep ecology, myth re-writing, Earth and Women’s cyclicity, magical and medicinal herbalism, psycho-magic, the wheel of Medicine and circle wisdom.

The training is divided into two parts, which are complementary yet independent.
