Welcome to my website! On these pages you will find information about the northern tradition of runecraft, shamanic practice and magic. For those of you with a more Hellenic bent there are also songs and pictures dedicated to the Greek gods with whom I also work.
I am a StarFire Alchemist; I follow my own personal path through the mysteries and seek to explore what I am called to, but I don’t subscribing to any one tradition or world view. It isn’t an easy path as you have to seek your own answers to the mysteries, and there will be no one else in the world who thinks and practices quite like you – but it is a hugely rewarding one and it celebrates the uniqueness of every individual.
If you want to learn more about the path of the StarFire Alchemist then visit StarFire Alchemy which Kay Gillard (amazing, awesome shamanic worker and priestess) and I set up to support others who are seeking to carve out their own unique path through the mysteries.
The word rune means ‘whisper’, ‘secret’ or ‘mystery’. Runes are keys, energy forms, collections of ancient wisdom, doorways into other worlds. We can work with them to gain wisdom and understanding, and to change the shape and flow of our lives.
The sight is growing all the time but I would recommend that you look at the following as a starting point:
- Information pages about the Elder Futhark (the oldest rune alphabet)
- Pick up your free recorded pathworking for one rune – simply pick a rune from the Elder Futhark and email me requesting the journey. Not enough for you? You can purchase the whole 24 journeys in my shop
- Check out the rune library for recommended texts
- Learn about rune casting and the rune calendar (including discovering your own birth runes)
- Find out about my on-line training courses which are being piloted as we speak…
- Visit StarFire Alchemy to learn about in-person courses. There are lots and lots of courses using shamanic techniques to broaden your spiritual path and healing practice, as well as courses on the runes and the exciting and intensive Yggdrasil’s Path where you will explore northern shamanic practices, soul weaving and the worlds of Yggdrasil
If you don’t already know about it do check out the free podcast service The Shamanic Voice. The site is full of resources including journeying tracks and interviews with or podcasts by leading and emerging voices in shamanism today. My show Shaman of the North focused on channelings from northern ancestors sharing their own practice in its first year; I am now doing a series of shows about the northern elements.
There are lots of ways in which we can work together through my correspondence courses, circles, teaching and, of course, by you sending me your questions and comments! At the bottom of the page you will also find information about Facebook groups and pages that I administer.
I am currently taking a sabbatical from one-to-one healing work to focus on other projects and my own healing journey. If you feel particularly called to work with me on your own development and healing then do get in touch and we can discuss ways in which you can develop your practice and facilitate your healing. My specialisms are in past life and ancestral work, helping people to break down the old patterns that are holding them back and re-weave more powerful selves. I am, of course, always working with other healers and I may also be able to refer you on.
I am a great believer in empowering others to undertake their own healing and I would really encourage you to come along to the training Kay and I run, or to look into other training providers. Even if you don’t plan to become a professional healer yourself, working with others to share healing, seership, energy work and magic is a hugely empowering experience.
If you are based in London then do come along to the regular Shamanic Spirit Circle held at Buddha on a Bicycle in Covent Garden every second Friday of the month. The circle is designed for beginners as well as those seeking like minded souls or wanting to sample Kay and I’s special flavour of shamanic practice. We send out a bulletin prior to each circle letting you know what the topic will be and giving you all the details, join the StarFire Alchemy mailing list and select ‘Shamanic Spirit’ to receive the bulletins.
