A summary

The Ancient Ways: the first weekend in our new Wisdom Keepers series. Join us for a deep exploration into the ancient ways of experiencing and communicating with other types of reality – something our ancestors did on a regular basis. We will purify ourselves using the sweat-lodge ritual, use all of our senses to connect deeply with nature and practice shamanic drumming and journeying techniques. We will also introduce you to the nature of The Quest and the Sacred Prayer Pipe and you'll learn some ancient healing, divination and cleansing techniques for modern times. Phil Greenwood will lead this weekend, in partnership with guest facilitator Leo Rutherford. Leo Rutherford is a shamanic practitioner with more than 30 years' experience and an author with an MA in Holistic Psychology. This will be an immersive experience, looking at how ancient practices can be powerful forces in our own lives today.

Sacred Earth·Nature educator & environmentalist
Hi, I'm Phil. I am a group facilitator, a teacher, a nature guide, a change agent, an outdoor education specialist and a naturalist. More recently I've become an Earth and Culture Restoration Specialist and a Connection Coach with the 8Shields global mentoring network. I lead on education at the Sacred Earth Community Benefit Society but I'm also the land manager. I've studied Biodynamic agriculture, arboriculture and permaculture and I'm proud to say that since we took over management of our beautiful 40-acre site in 2011 we've significantly increased its biodiversity. I have spent over 20 years working directly with people in nature. I have studied, practiced and taught the core routines of nature connection, as well as advanced shamanic practices from indigenous cultures around the world. I've led many forms of nature and vision quest. I've learned from other cultures including the San Bushmen, Apache, Lakota, Haudosaunee, Coastal Salish and our own Celtic ancestors, through the Bardic traditions. I spent my young adulthood as a Royal Marine Commando, working as a wilderness guide in Canada and various conservation expeditions. By experiencing much of the world through travel, I understand what we need to do to create a healthy human culture. I am also currently a steering group member of the UK Nature Culture Network and I work with the Helpers Mentoring Society in the USA. My passion is creating connection - with ourselves, others and the natural world.
