Bonus until Dec 16th!

If you join the membership before Dec 16th, you will also receive access to this foundational class, “Listen”.

 

One of the questions I get most often when it comes to spiritual practice is, “how do I know I’m not just making it all up in my head?”

 

“Listen” is my answer to this common question.

 

For many years, I also struggled with this - although I was compelled to engage with spirituality, I couldn’t help but wonder if I was just making it all up in my imagination.

 

After extensive study into animism and somatic intuition, I came to understand that we are innately equipped to use the sensory mechanisms of our intuition in communication with nature, ancestors, and intelligences in the Otherworld.

 

Getting clear about specific intuitive abilities based on a coherent philosophy allows you to go much deeper in your spiritual practice & develop confidence in creating relationships with nature and the unseen.

 

In this 2-hour immersive class, you will learn the core teachings and skills necessary to start harnessing the potency of your inner knowing. This is everything I wish I had known when I started out. The skills you learn in this class will also keep unfolding for years to come, enabling you to develop deeper and deeper relationships with nature, ancestors, and the unseen realms. 

But now...back to the membership!

In the industrial west formed from European cultures and diaspora, many of us have become deeply disconnected from our wisdom traditions. We have forgotten our ancient history, how to be in relationship with nature and her cycles, and how to honour our ancestors.

Join me in reclaiming knowledge of these ancient sacred sites and landscapes through studying a different site each month with related lore + stories from Britain & Ireland.

Each month, a live class will offer an in-depth study of one site, with contextual information of the time period to give us a deeper understanding into what can be known of the animist traditions of these ancient cultures. 

To expand our learning, we will focus on an old story each month for cosmological context.

A cornerstone of the membership is also engaging with embodied intuitive practices to cultivate a connection to place and cosmology.

This is more than just history...this is a container that supports you in becoming a Wisdom Keeper of your own traditions through:

Sacred History Lessons

Intuitive 

ritual practice 

Animist Cosmology

Folklore &

 

Old Stories

Our Next Class:
Bryn Celli Ddu, Isle of Anglesey, Wales
3,075-2,950 B.C.E
Dec 6th, 12 pm EST

Join us as we explore Bryn Celli Ddu, a neolithic burial mound overlooking mountains and river.

 

This site was in use for hundreds of years, rebuilt over time, containing enigmatic rock art and precious stones. What can Bryn Celli Ddu tell us about neolithic cosmology?

Come and learn more about this incredible site and the implications for our animist practice.

Bonus Class:
A Brief History of
Prehistoric Britain & Ireland

When you join the membership, you will also have access to a crash video course in the key prehistorical moments that shaped ancient Britain & Ireland, from 11,000 B.C.E. to 43 A.D.

It can be really overwhelming to get a handle on this timeline because it covers a large geographical area, a long period of time, and so many different cultural elements. 

Allow me to break this down into manageable pieces so you can develop a good understanding of key events, changing landscape, cultural cosmologies, and much more.

Animist Arts
Practitioner & Teacher

Creator of
Sacred Earth Grove

The teachings and practices offered in this membership are based upon my 25+ years of training, study, and practice in the field of animism, nature connection, Insular Celtic history and cosmology, and intuitive/energetic healing, distilled into core learning experiences and personal support that make this material very accessible to you.

Hi, I'm Robyn

With a passion for nature connection and spiritual philosophy. I have been on a journey of exploring my animistic and ancestral traditions for 25+ years. 

These studies have taken me through the fields of Restorative Justice, Eco-therapy, Nature Connection, Social Work, Herbalism, Forest Schooling, and Insular Celtic life ways.

My offerings to the world combine circle-keeping, relating to the consciousness of nature, and helping others raised in industrial culture create an earth-based spiritual practice that tends to the mythic language of the soul.

I practice by spending deep, reflective time in nature, dream-work, ritual, ancestral reverence, adhering to natural cycles/moon phases, and learning about the history of my people and the ecology of the various lands I have lived upon (across the UK and Canada).

I live everything I teach, and am also a mother to 3 sweet daughters who are always teaching me more about living in balance!

Rebecca, Student

Robyn creates a safe space to learn and grow in. Completing this course has given me a foundation of connection to a culture long lost in my personal lineage.  It is both liberating and grounding to walk forward in my life with the things I’ve learned.  I’m excited to continue on this path of reconnection and self discovery.

You said something about belonging…and I feel like that’s what I’ve really been looking for my whole life, is a deeper way to belong. This class has been the bridge into helping me find a way to belong to the land and the ancestors
