Shamanism & the Medicine Wheel in person Foundation Course, Tue 27th Sept 7.30pm


Aho in association with Miguel Da Silva and Gareth Hughes is honoured to offer an in person Shamanism and the Medicine Wheel Foundation Course.


This year long training course is a journey of self-discovery, of self-healing, and of connection. Consisting of 25 bi weekly lessons every other Tuesday from 7.30-10pm, at The Prana Space in Stratford. Supported by videos, audio recordings, a private facebook group, homework and additional handouts.


Gareth and Miguel are also offering an online version of the course consisting of 17 online lessons complemented by 2 weekend retreats. Starting in Nov for those that cannot attend the in person course in London.


When the Medicine Wheel Foundation Course started we had no idea that it would develop into one of the most comprehensive shamanic training courses in the country. Right from the beginning we have always aimed to give to best possible training into shamanism. Our students get good foundational knowledge and experience of shamanism to build on whether they continue exploring it or find another spiritual direction.


We have seen many students come and go over the past 6 years. Many of those that joined the foundation course carried on their training on the medicine wheel, some used what they learnt on the course to map out their own spiritual path.


It is for us a real honour to see how quickly our students change from the moment they walk into the foundation course. It shows that what we teach is real, and when applied will make a massive difference to their lives.


Shamanism teaches you how to become more of who you are. Shamanism can help you to overcome obstacles in your life and give you direction through some very simple but deeply effective techniques. Through shamanism you learn how the world around you is continuously giving you messages about yourself and what you can do to heal yourself. It teaches you that when you truly connect with the energies, the spirits, and the natural world around you real and lasting change is possible. The Foundation Course into Shamanism is a very powerful and sometimes challenging course that teaches you how to take your power back and be empowered by events from your past and present in order to change your future.


During the course of the 25 lessons, which are held once a fortnight on Tuesday evenings, we will cover various core aspects of shamanism and the medicine wheel including:
• What is a shaman and what is shamanism
• Shamanic healing
• Opening and closing sacred space
• Importance of Love, Share, Non-Judgement, Honour, Integrity, Trust, and Respect
• The Medicine Wheel and its archetypes
• Shamanic journeying
• Negative energies and removal of attachments
• Connecting with nature
• Icaros and Medicine Songs
• Healing with crystals
• Despachos


The course has its foundations rooted in the Peruvian traditions. We also know that those traditions are at the centre of the Peruvian local culture and beliefs. They belong to the Peruvians and they have been part of their lives for centuries. We discovered that when we use their transformative energies and adapt them to our own local culture and energies something magical happened. We very quickly became aware of its empowering and transformative potential. We started to see people really connecting with that new shamanic energy for personal growth, healing, and empowerment.


The teachings at the centre of shamanism are the same in all shamanic traditions. We all understand that everything starts and ends with ourselves, that the reality we see every day is just an illusion, and that we are all connected to each other and the world around us.


Shamanism is not about finding answers outside of yourself, it's all about you. There is no hierarchy, there is no wise guru to give the answers, there is no dogma. We are all on the same level, connected and united as one community. Through that unity within the community we support and encourage each other on the path to real empowerment.


The course is based on our own experiences of going round the Medicine Wheel and inspired by the teachings we have received from our teachers. These originate in South America but also include influences from the traditions of this land. It is a real honour for us to share these amazing teachings with you. We fully honour the teachings and those that gave them to us and our intention is to pass them on with integrity, honour, dedication, laughter, love, and truth.


Lessons are £35 per person per lesson. Paid in advance or on the day. (book your place in advance via website)


Location: The Prana Space
1 Windmill Lane. Stratford,

Bringing traditional shamanism into the 21st century modern shamanism is all about for Gareth & Miguel. 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.


As teachers, their shamanic foundations took root in the Peruvian traditions. These traditions have been part of their culture for centuries. Gareth & Miguel 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.


Within this course they aim to create a sense of community, of belonging. This course is based on and inspired by the teachings they have received from their own teachers of various differing traditions and by our own experiences as shamans. The core of what they teach originates in South America but also includes influences from other shamanic and pagan traditions. It is a real honour for them to share these amazing teachings with you and the intention is to pass them on with integrity, honour, dedication, laughter, respect, love, and truth.
