Shamanic Workshops

Introductory Shamanic Workshop

The one-day Introductory Workshop offers an overview of the Basic Principles and Practices of Shamanic Practices, including:

  • Gaining a clear understanding of the key concepts of shamanism.
  • Making a shamanic journey (to non-ordinary reality).
  • Finding and retrieving your own power animal.
  • Learning about shamanic tools including the shamanic drum and the shamanic rattle.


Shamanic Practice is a form of nature-based, deep spiritual personal development and healing. It is the oldest form of spiritual connection and informer of how to live well on this beautiful Earth and the Journey that we all undertake as we live our lives. It provides us with the tools, maps and awareness to live in connection, within our own self, in relationship with other people and with all Life on this planet – healing the sickness of separation and disconnection in the most beautiful and often profound experiences.

This one-day introductory workshop is a great way to try out some techniques and learn a little about Shamanic Practice, its practices and principles and how this is relevant and practical to your daily life. It is a day of sharing, often fun and a chance to be with likeminded people and you will end the day with some very useful shamanic techniques to practice on yourself and for others if you choose.

On completion of the one-day workshop you will be offered the opportunity to join the Shamanic Practices Foundation Course.

Attendance of the Introductory Workshop is a required pre-requisite for attendance on the Shamanic Foundation Course. Information for this foundation course is below.

2021-2022 Shamanic Practices Foundation Course

This Course is held over 6 weekends from November 2022 completing in September 2023. Camping and yurt hire is available through private arrangement with the Clophill Centre. There is also a range of B&B’s and Hotels locally.

Participation in the course will impart a deeper understanding of Shamanic Practice and its principles and practices. You will learn how to access the extra-ordinary worlds of the shaman though shamanic journey techniques and develop a deeper experience of these non-ordinary realities.

  • Learn the appropriate use of shamanic tools and techniques.
  • Begin to comprehend our own multi-dimensional nature – Body, Mind, Soul and Spirit – and learn how the intelligence of the physical body may be contacted and communicated with in order to correct any energy-imbalances that may be causing us problems.
  • Examine fully the world around us from a shamanic perspective, using the medicine wheel as a guide in making our own personal links with nature and finding direction and purpose in our personal lives. We will experience for our self the Spiritual Ecology and learn how to work with the Elements and with benevolent powers of nature and by so doing obtain personal guidance that is of value in our life at the present time. We will come to understand through personal experience that the trees, plants, animals, birds, even rocks and stones can be our teachers.
  • Examine how to retrieve information from subtle essences that are carried from previous lives and stored in our personal energy-system and how this information can help us better deal with the conflicts and challenges being faced in our present life. A unique method of past life therapy is introduced and experienced.
  • Completion of the Foundation Course ensures a good grounding in your personal practice and is the gateway to access the other courses on offer through Shamanic Quest.

The Clophill Centre is located just outside of the pretty Bedfordshire village of Clophill. The aim of the centre is to provide a location where like-minded people can gather to practice complementary medicine in a spacious, light and agreeable setting with views over open countryside.

“It has been a real joy to learn and work with Melanie Tomsett. She has taught me so many things, but most of all, she has given me the confidence to believe in my own ability. I have loved our workshops. They have been interesting and informative. It has also been, so nice to come together and meet like minded people! At the end of our workshops, I have left feeling energised and inspired!”
