Reintroduction to Shamanism

I have been practicing some form of neo-pagan shamanism on and off for the past decade, but chronically feeling lost in my experiences. I made a breakthrough this year though!

It began when a friend recommended a local shamanic practitioner who was taking on clients. Tiffany has had such an amazing influence on me over the past few months. With her guidance I have come to a better understanding of what makes me tick, work through some toxic relationships, and finally have the confidence to pursue the path of a shamanic practitioner myself.

I’ve half-heartedly tried to become a shamanic practitioner in the past, but I had to work through a lot of issues of confidence and ego. I still have to work through a lot of issues of confidence and ego, but I have an awareness of them now. I am now in a place where I can step forward.

The universe recognised that, and finally, I found a teacher who I felt was the right fit for me.

I am just back from an amazing weekend of training with Tiffany’s teacher, Twobirds. I joined her Introduction to Shamanism course at Anam Cara, an amazing retreat centre in Inverness. I cannot find words to express my joy and gratitude for my time with Twobirds, and my amazing fellow students. Being able to share such powerful experiences with such wonderful people has left me feeling truly blessed, and I am ready to keep walking this path.

This is who I am and what I do.
