    – Travelling the World Tree
    – Exploring and navigating the Celtic Otherworld
    – The Celtic Wheel of the Year
    – The Four Cardinal Directions - and associated symbolism

    – Ancestors and Bloodlines
    – Totem Animals
    – Taliesin, Britain’s greatest Shaman poet
    – The Web of Wyrd
    – The Crane Bag: A Druid’s shamanic tools
    – Shamanic consciousness and insight
    – Awen: The Creative flow of inspiration

    Following the talk, I delivered a practical session that included Druidic and Yogic Dharana Meditations along with creative thinking exercises such as ‘The Shadow’: Psychosynthesis – conversing with your psychic hero/es.
