Bringing traditional shamanism into the 21st century and making it our own is at the core of what for us modern shamanism is all about. Shamanism is always shifting and changing as times change. The teachings from those that came before us as just as valid and needed today as they were in the past.


Our shamanic foundations took root in the Peruvian traditions. Those traditions are not ours but sit at the centre of the Peruvian culture and beliefs. They have been part of their lives for centuries. We recognised the value in those traditions and found a way to use their transformative energies and adapt them to our own local culture and energies. By combining them we very quickly became aware of their empowering and transformative potential.


The way in which we teach shamanism is by first making you recognise that everything starts and ends with you. It is not about finding answers outside of yourself or to place trust in all-knowing gurus. It's all about you. Within our courses there is no hierarchy, and there is no wise enlightened being to give you the answers. You learn through experiencing everything for yourself.


Within our courses we aim to create a sense of community, of belonging. Within the community we support and encourage each other on the path to real empowerment. Shamanism puts full control back with yourself, the control to create your own reality.
