With Spirit, Staff and Song

Shamanic Voices and the Cader Idris Centre for Shamanic Studies Presents:

exploring seidr, ceremony and wild nature

With Christine Mark, Jane Shutt and Shenoah Taylor

Future dates to be confirmed

037The practice of seidr is deeply woven into nature and while much of our sacred isle has been cultivated wilderness still lives in the heart of the earth. The magical coast of West Wales allows us to touch easily the essence of the Mountains, Sea, River and Forest and receive wisdom from the spirits of the land.

Stream in Amynedd

During our time together we will work with the spirits taking our already honed seidr skills to new levels of understanding and experience. We will explore working with the elements, the land, the setting of the sun, the fullness of the moon and the power and energies of the mountain, sea, river and forest. We will step through the door into wild connection and discover the treasures and joy the practice of seidr offers the modern practitioner of this ancient tradition.

The craft of seidr calls for deepening further our own spiritual traditions and experiencing the magic and ecstasy of spirit connection. Working in nature in different locations we will explore the relationship between ourselves, nature, the song and the staff using community ritual, paired and lone work.

This workshop is for experienced seidr workers; to be considered you must already work with shamanism and have attended a seidr workshop run by one of the facilitators, Annette Host or an agreed equivalent.

Llwyngwril Beach - November 2013Our chosen venue, Frondderw, is a large and comfortable house in the village of Llwyngwril in the Snowdonia National Park. It is a few minutes walk from the sea and also Amynedd, the home of Jane and Christine which is nestled at the foot of Cader Idris Mountain; one of the highest mountains in Wales. Amynedd, which means “Patience”, offers 10 acres of mountain side, woodland, streams and magical places to explore.


The course is fully residential and all meals will be provided. Some of the areas we will be working in are accessed by steep inclines so participants need to be physically active.

Cost: TBC – depending on accommodation choice.

Open your arms to what the Earth gives.
She’s your mother. You are her child.
This is your birth right – she’ll give it to you –
And together, you’ll re-seed The Wild
