The Dance Of Leadership

A Spiritual-Shamanic training in leadership skills.

Whether you wish to hold movement/dance sessions or shamanic processes, one to one work or simply wish to deepen your understanding of your own skills. This training and two year process might be for you.

Supporting people to find their greatest potential and their fullest purpose in life, so they too can hold space for others. We use meditations in movement, dance, ritual-theater, creativity and community sharing.

I have no wish to tell you how growth should happen, but I weave together experiences and life - stories that I share with, holding a space that you can grow within.

My offering is to support people in finding their fullest purpose in life from a creative perspective. To find their own voices, an increased confidence and personal empowerment. To have the tools necessary to further their potential, being able to make their offering to their communities, the environment, to the world.

Holding safe spaces for the dance and creativity, for others empowerment and growth.

In applying for this training, you will need to have the experience of dancing consciously or having an embodied practice, for a minimum of two years. As an apprentice to the Leadership path, you will need to have an understanding of the gateways that Middle Earth Medicine offers.

There are 12 apprentice places at any one time. To apply for a place, please send in an application form to this email
