Shamanic Healing

Finding Your Wild… Self

You know those moments of change in our lives that bring with them the opportunity to step away from the old version of you and step into the new? At these times, as we tread new ground, we find that we can rest and grow more deeply when we have support and guidance along the way.

After finding out I had cancer at 18 and undergoing treatment, I was spurred on to explore what the rest of the world had to offer. An incredible journey unfolded over the years, around the UK, Ireland, Europe and parts of India and Africa exploring Buddhist teachings and Divine Love practices, staying in Hindu ashrams, going on solitary retreats in the Sierra Nevada and teaching English to Muslim students. One thing I discovered without a doubt is that while I had to follow my own path, I needed wisdom and guidance to help me do that.

"Working with Victoria has transformed how I see myself. Engaging with shamanic practice may on the surface feel like a gentle, therapeutic experience, but goes much, much deeper. Victoria has helped me shift what is no longer useful in my life, in exchange for gifts I had always longed for, but never thought possible." Amy

In my late thirties I started to find what I had been looking for. It took 20 years to come full circle - moving to a smallholding similar to the one I grew up on, and exploring shamanic work, a nature loving philosophy that helps us to come back into balance with the world around us.

I studied the way of the shaman with Spirit of the Inca in the UK and in Peru, where this tradition originates from, and I began to see things shift in my life. The old habits that had kept me stuck and small dropped away piece by piece and I began to create my life from a new place. I found I had more space in my heart and mind to dream my world into being. I also found that others were asking for shamanic sessions and were finding benefit from the practices I was sharing with them.

Now, I offer shamanic healing here at Woodspring.

Shamanic session - (£40) A session lasting about an hour to work on the challenges that are current in your life.

Overnight Guided Shepherd Hut Retreat - from 2:00 pm to 11:00 am the following day. Using the shepherd hut as your base to rest, sleep, eat and integrate, and with sessions held in our therapy space in the house, the retreat starts with a stone massage (called khuya limpia) to help you arrive and let go of stress and tension. After time resting in the hut you then receive a shamanic session. Dinner is provided following this session and the evening brings a chance to learn how to create a sand painting to help you work with issues that come up in your daily life. We complete our time together in the evening with a fire ceremony. The following day, after eating a breakfast that has been brought up to you in the hut, we meet again in the therapy space for some deeply healing and rejuvenating practices that will give you connection and protection to carry home with you. The cost is £150 for 1 person / £260 for 2 people. Dinner, breakfast and all resources included.

Children’s Sessions - I also offer sessions for children to learn how to work with difficult emotions such as anger and sadness, how to connect with and thank the earth, how to give and receive khuya limpia (stone massage) and how to bring in healing energy. 2 hour session (£25 per child for up to 2 children / £20 per child for 3 - 6 children.)



The basis of the work is to take a look at what is holding you back, physically, emotionally, spiritually and let it go. With the space that this creates, I then support you to become the greatest version of yourself – who you came here to be. A wonderful side effect to this healing is the joy and connection it brings into your life. If you do the work, the joy floods in.

If you choose to come for a shamanic session or retreat you are invited to go on an inner journey, experiencing reflection, recuperation and illumination in a lovingly held space.
This work begins with the energetic body which then filters down into the emotional, mental and physical. We journey together to find and release whatever is keeping you stuck and - when you are ready - bring back gifts and dream your world into being.

Then you can more easily take the next steps upon your journey. As each of us clears our energy field more, we find our gifts and start to show up more in the world - be more present, more clear-sighted and more able to be of benefit to ourselves and others.

"The Shamanic sessions I have had with Victoria proved to me beyond doubt that this ancient tradition of healing is very powerful and her instinctive and intuitive awareness of your individual situation guides you through the session with such love and warmth that you just know you are indeed in a safe and restorative place."
