Medicine, Magic and Alchemy: the second weekend in our Wisdom Keepers series. Join us for a transformative weekend exploring deep earth and expansive sky, though the power of earth alchemy and advanced nature connection practices. Alchemy is rooted in a complex spiritual worldview in which everything around us contains a sort of universal spirit. Many indigenous peoples believe that all elements of the natural world are sacred. Our ancestors, the Celts, also believed this: the Druids worshipped trees, rocks, stones and animals and interacted with a range of elemental beings. Today we call this 'inter-species communication'. This weekend will be an immersive experience, looking at how some of these ancient practices can be powerful forces in our own lives today. We will immerse ourselves in advanced nature connection, including exercises that build sensory awareness, plant and animal observation and communication.

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.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
