Our students answer the question…

Is this the read deal?

You will learn to calmly deal with the deepest of traumas and situations within yourself and for others. Nothing has ever presented itself to the school that has been too big for the spirit guides overseeing it to manage.

As the vibration of the planet ascends in this time of tremendous spiritual change, the ease and speed with which this happens is changing exponentially. What was the way of the past is not the way of the present and definitely not the future. The One Tribe shamanic school therefore is continually evolving as we as a species do and every class is tailored to the specific needs of that individual group.

It is not the job of the teachers in the school to manage this process with their minds. Their job, just as you will be trained to do, is to get out of the way and be a conduit for this ancient wisdom to flow through them. Mark, who leads all the sessions, has never been under the delusion that it is his class. He has been trained for a decade in this process by his own shamanic teacher Sue (the grandmother of One Tribe) before beginning teaching himself over 16 years ago.

Whilst Mark has incredibly deep personal connections with an indigenous tribe which demands him to travel each year to support, he does not share anything from that tradition apart from one ceremony which he has never charged for. In fact, he collects donations for this ceremony (including his own) which go straight back to the tribe. What Mark teaches are core fundamental shamanic techniques as taught to him by his own shamanic teacher and his shamanic healing guides, learned through direct personal experience in healing himself and working with his clients. These are universal techniques applied by many earth-based traditions. Knowing that we are all one, the human experience and how to rebalance it are very similar. At times Mark will start a class believing he is teaching it the same way he has done for years only to be guided to teach a whole new technique or conduct a whole new ceremony from start to finish. He truly embodies the principles taught by the school – to get out of the way and allow something greater than himself to flow through to support the group.
