Mark acknowledges and pays respect to the shamanic teachers and guides he has had influence his path and offerings of which for some, learning is still open and will be as such until my eldership:
Louise Gilmore. Caitlin Mattews (Celtic wisdom), Shaman Kush (Peruvian & plant teacher wisdom) and Orion (Native American, Ute wisdom and Australian first nation, Pitjantjatjara wisdom)
Mark is a Shamanic Practitioner and group facilitator, Poetic and Sacred Wood Craftsman.
As a Poetic by nature, to Mark, words are sacred and stories, the magical agency that binds the world and builds the roads at the frontier of identity, and body to spirit relations.
Marks path has tracked through Intuitive development, Shamanic studies of various cosmologies and lineage, sitting with and learning from Initiated Shamans, counselling, and having sacred life altering experiences at sites and lands around the world.
With ancestral roots in Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, Mark feels a deep connection to the lineage of shamanism through the bardic arts, in the accompaniment of the ancestors, hopping forward. He embraces the word as a transformative faculty, capable of altering spaces and evoking imaginative and poetic sensation.
His passion and core intentions within his offerings is to awaken, enliven and remind us of the magic and mythic sense of existence, the transcendental power of spiritual confrontation and support, and the effect of poetic language upon the listening world, within and without.
