What People say about our Courses

Natural Shamanism Practitioner Training

"My experience of The Natural Shamanism Course has been one of Remembering who I Am..who We All are. I have felt a gentle unfolding of My Heart, and a steady letting Go of negative ego patterns.The course provides practical and visionary tools to enable deep healing and connection to Magic and Mystery." - Gerry
 
"The School of Natural Shamanism has given me knowledge and tools to take a deep dive into Self and to activate my soul’s essence through the love that is within us all. I started the journey with ego work to peel back the layers of conditioning with deep awareness... journeying and meeting our guides, working with the drum and rattle, bodywork and sound healing and using the creative imagination to assist in healing. It's been truly incredible." - Tashi
 
"I am about half way through the shamanic practitioner course and Hoppi takes great care to support each of us to learn the tools deeply and embody them through regular practice. The residential weeks are fun but also appropriately challenging. Learning with like minded people has been hugely rewarding and we are now a close family. What has really blown my mind was that this course has opened up a portal in me that has allowed me to truly understand myself and deeply start to heal. That I wasn’t expecting. The journey is never easy but it is profoundly rewarding. This is a truly transformational experience in every way." - Anne-Marie, Medical Doctor
 
"I am part way through the Natural Shamanism Practitioner Course with Hoppi. It is a fantastic course covering energy healing techniques, tools, auric tear repairs, intrusion extractions, working with plant, animal and mineral energies for healing. Hoppi has incredible knowledge and I am forever grateful to her for allowing me to be part of this profound journey. Truly life changing for the better. Can't recommend this course enough." - HD, Police Officer
 
"Nine months ago, I embarked on a transformative journey with Hoppi’s Natural Shamanism course, and it has unequivocally reshaped my understanding of spiritual realms and inner healing. The course brings together ancient traditions with contemporary insights, creating a rich tapestry of wisdom and practices. Hoppi has a profound knowledge and genuine commitment to our growth. Through various drum journeys, rituals, and meditations, I’ve gained invaluable tools for personal transformation and healing. This journey has been more than just an education; it has been a profound awakening. For those seeking depth, authenticity, and profound spiritual growth, this course is a beacon of light and highly recommended!" - Fed, Naturopathic nutritionist

Sound Healer Practitioner Training

"After finally giving up plumbing and heating I was somehow guided to Hoppi. I enrolled on her Sound Healing course, which was in fact a journey of discovery, not just of sound but of myself.  found myself in such a profound way and it transformed life, completely changing my whole perspective on life itself.
I graduated February 2023 and that's when my new life and future began - helping people heal. Meeting Hoppi and enrolling on the Sound Healing course gave me my life back and it just keeps on giving. God bless you Hoppi."
