to share knowledge, encourage curiosity, and provide deep personal experiences

workshop in Toronto 2013

This page gives an idea of typical workshops that I teach. Also collaboration with other teachers who work with similar themes or practices is great way to work. A custom schedule can be arranged to provide introductory workshops and retreats, for a weekend or longer.

Example list of topics: 

  •  An Introduction to Finno-Ugric (Baltic-Finnic) peoples shamanistic worldview

  •  Rituals, Myths and guided journeys to The Otherworld

  •  Bear and  The wheel of the year (in nature and in our natural rhythm)

  •  Northern perspective to feminine mysteries and traditional knowledge 

  •  Grief and rituals (Finno-Ugric lament tradition /weeping songs/ancestors)

  •  Folklore and magic (spells, healing practices, communicating with nature, herbalism in Baltic countries)

  •  Working with Ancestral knowledge ("For you to be born today from 12 previous generations, you needed a total sum of 4,094 ancestors over the last 400 years" /By Lyrical Zen)

I’m happy to customize a topic or program to suit your specific requirements. Contact me for booking or with any questions:
