Journey Within.

Come and join me for some shamanic fun. Learn how to journey within ourselves as we explore ancient shamanic traditions, how to follow the path of the heart and direct revelation.  I aim to share my experiences with a group of people who are willing to look inside themselves for what they are looking for in life to make them happy. All too often especially in the western world we are looking outside of ourselves for our joy, we need that car and house then we will be happy, we need a better job more money then I will be happy, if only I could lose weight I would be happy.  We hold the key to our own happiness inside ourselves.  This group will unfold in its own way over the weeks, however I plan to do some meditation, drumming, smudging and have plenty of laughs.

I hold a group in Falkirk once a week.  Contact me for further details please.  

I also travel to venues and hold workshops.  Prices would be amended to include my travel any overnight stays and any venue costs. I Can do longer if that is peoples preference.  Please contact me if you are interested in me coming to your area.

I am also approved by Sandra Ingerman to teach Shamans Path, Medicine for the Earth, Soul retrieval, Death and Dying and Extraction.  If you are interested in learning any of these workshops please contact me and suggest dates.  There are prerequisites to most of them.

I have a bluebird dreamweaver facebook page where I post my events.

 ALL Deposits are non refundable.   

Due to my sensitivites to mobile phones I ask that they are not brought into the workshops.

I normally prepare a simple lunch of homemade soups for all workshops, please bring along food to share or if you have a specific diet if this is your preference.

The teachings: Nepalese-Himalayan Shamanism – The Magic of the Three Worlds
In this two-day program Bhola will introduce you to the three realms of spirit and how they are reflected both outside and inside of your body. You will learn the traditional Nepalese method of using three spheres of light for protection and shape-shifting postures. You will also learn how the five elements are connected to aspects of your body. Through journeys, you will meet the creatures that inhabit your realms and what they need to support your power. The workshop will also introduce participants to the sacred dagger known as a kila or kilaya. Used for centuries before being adopted by Buddhism, you will learn that this ritual implement is a manifestation of the world tree, the three realms and the jhankri’s helping spirits. The kila may be used to extract spiritual illness, clear spaces, charge healing waters, impart blessings and hold the center of the cosmos for your shamanic work. You will learn the sacred kila mudras—the ritual handling of the sacred dagger—and how you can utilize this marvelous shamanic tool in your own practice. Bhola will offer you a blessing of protection, harmony, balance and joy to finalize the weekend and Siir Uthaunu ceremony to raise your innate power. 
 ** As shamans work directly with guidance some of the course contents may change.
Prerequisites: A working knowledge of shamanic journeying is required. Both Maggie and Fotoula offer in-depth workshops in shamanism and shamanic journeying, in Falkirk and Glasgow respectively. Please contact them directly for details.

HOLLOW BONE. May 26th 27th. September 2018. Cost £150, 10-6pm.  Prerequisite journey skills.  Numbers limited to 6. Deposit £50

This is a brand new course I have been guided and delighted to write up.  I am guided to write this shamanic workshop for the increasing interest in shamanism, and its a great starting point to see what being a shamanic practitioner is all about, we will learn how to keep ourselves safe.  Build an altar, call in, meet and connect with our guides and a view of the 3 worlds Shamans use.  A light hearted fun loving look at where we want to go with shamanism, if it is really for us.  As we step into the alternative realities of a Shaman we become a bridge between the worlds to bring forward healing or for divination for others via our guides or ancestors; to do this we have to be grounded and have a look at the path ahead of us.  This requires we also look at ourselves.  As a result we may become much happier in our lives, as we reconnect to the ancient call of the shamans heart and re connect ourselves to Nature.

Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become,


Keep your words positive, because your words become,


Keep your behaviour positive, because your behaviour become,


Keep your habits positive, because your habits become,


Keep your values positive, because your values become,


Mahatma Gandhi.

The ancient cultures knew about the power of words, in some like ancient Egypt the power to manifest was so strong they were very careful as to what words they spoke aloud, and often spoke in coded language. Hebrew and Sanskript are vibrational languages, the vibration of a word goes up into the universe and comes back down as a physical manifestation.

A look at how we use words and the effects they are having on ourselves, others, and the environment; also what is happening in our inner worlds and our outer world. We create as we think, everything starts with a thought.  Are our illnesses a result of this thinking.   We are in a continous dialogue within, so a great way to have a deeper delve into what it is we are creating in our lives.  What were we really thinking there. Do we really want that belief system to manifest into your reality. Or has that belief system already become your reality.  A fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and use these to change what we want to be in the future. A fun filled experience with many laughs and much humour.  This is a an adaption in part of Sandra Ingermans work and my own research.

A shamanic journeying work shop, bring along drums, rattles, notebooks and blankets and water bottles.

Behind the Masks.12th 13th May 2018  Prerequisite journey skills. Maximum amount of people 6.. (The shamanic practitioner one is different)

A fun loving shamanic workshop, on the masks we are wearing in our lives. A look behind the scenes of ourselves to bring us understanding and harmony for the masks we wear on a daily basis. Using our journeying skills to connect with our allies to aid us to peel away our masks, so we can step into the world as our beautiful true loving self.  This workshop was created by my guides after I was noticing how many different masks I had been hiding behind during my life.  During an intense period of self discovery, peeling away and healing the layers of my inner world all these masks in this workshop were shown to me.  The masks that were positive and the masks that were detrimental to my well being.  A fun loving look at how we can become our true authentic selves, leave behind what no longer serves us, without giving ourselves the hard time we in the modern society have become so adept at doing.  Be ready to take the next step into a vibrant future with our soul shining brightly. (£150)

Please contact me for further details. Or with a request for me to run this workshop on a date thats suitable for you. I will also be posting this to my bluebird dreamweaver facebook page.

This two day workshop takes a look at how we can be of help to those who are ill and getting ready to pass from this life into the realms beyond. In our society we have for too long seen death as a failiure instead of the beautiful transition it is.   The role of the psychopomp also, the word psychopomp meaning leader of souls. A shaman works both with the living and the dead. An exploration of death and the dying process as we have become so afraid of dying, a look to see using our shamanic journeying skills how we can dissolve these fears for ourselves and our loved ones.  A look at how  a persons spirit gets stuck  and becomes an earthbound spirit.  Making peace and resolving any unfinished buisness with those who have already trancended this life.This is a Sandra Ingerman training, that I am approved to teach. I also add lots of my own experience as a psychopomp into these 2 days, and specially for those who are able to see ghosts and would like a better understanding of the possible reasons, or are seeking  protective methods as they are afraid of the earthbound/ghosts , I add in the methods I personally use. Please bring along blankets, notebooks, drum/rattle and water bottle.  I will provide a simple vegan lunch.  However you are welcome to bring your own along too.  Numbers are limited.  For those who don't wish to participate in pschopomp (passing earthbound spirits into the light) I can seperate the teachings, please let me know if this is your preference.
