Opening the Third Eye

I received guidance last Easter to offer darkness training which helps to open the third eye, to create optimal conditions for better visioning. I began in June and it was a great success. However, I then had to stop because I needed to recover from a hospital operation … but this is just to say…

The last shaman of Britain

I am taking this title from the best and most scholarly work ever written on the Celtic bard Taliesin, by John Matthews. It was my inspiration when deciding to bring Taliesin back to life as a singing-and-breathing character in my own stories that make up The Glastonbury Chronicles.

King for a Year and a Day

There is a consensus among ancient history researchers that the “king for a year and a day” was actually a practice of the Irish, Welsh and Scots during pre-Christian times.

Why race matters to the shaman

I carry the memories and stories of my ancestors in the blood of my race – in my DNA. These are unique to the Celts and Anglo-Saxons, who are white Caucasians, and they form the basis of my spiritual consciousness and my cosmological understanding. I love my race and wish to help preserve it against…

Nature spirits, bee shamans and ‘shrooms

You will be already familiar with nature spirits from illustrations of tiny fairies and pixies sitting on toadstools and mushrooms. You may not have realised, though, that there is a hidden message in these works of art. It is a metaphor for our true Elders, the Underlords and the Overlords of the green mantle of…

Where do we go when all the stories fail?

Where do we go when all the stories fail? All the stories are failing. Fewer and fewer want to go and sit in big, draughty buildings with high ceilings – no matter how beautifully fan-vaulted – to hear them anymore. The picture below shows the purpose-made wooden pews of the 12th century church of St…
