I A very beautiful experience - I loved the ocean drum it made me feel so peaceful. The power of the big drum felt as if it was beating my heart deep in my body - wow💗. Had a cobras head coming out of my mouth uncoiling from around my heart felt so powerful.

Fay Johnstone
Fay Johnstone

A practical Shaman, Reiki teacher and Plant-Spirit guide, I am passionate about connecting plants and people to help you rediscover your magic, heal and restore wholeness to your soul using the alchemy of nature.

I draw on my experience as a former owner of a flower and herb farm, 20 years of Reiki Practice and Shamanic Training to bring the subtle whispers of nature to assists you with the journey of your soul.

My spiritual allies include Reiki, meditation, gardening, plant medicine and Shamanic techniques. By honouring the seasons and elements, living in close connection with Mother Earth I believe we can feel supported and guided by the subtle ways that nature communicates and experience transformation and growth on both a personal and planetary level.

My workshops and courses aim to help participants connect with plants and nature in a meaningful, magical and life changing way. I also teach Reiki and offer one to one Shamanic treatments and plant based healing across the UK, online and from my home in Scotland. My first book "Plants that Speak, Souls that Sing" is now available here. Visit www.fayjohnstone.com for more info!

Everyone had a great day and really enjoyed it. I noticed that my food tasted really good and nature seemed extra colourful. I did have dreams which felt very real and also were in colour – I feel that I had such a big shift yesterday. Thanks again, for a super day!

I am reconnecting to who I am and loving more what is. I now feel a strong sense of get up and go and of having fun. The process has given me permission to take care of me, put myself first in order to have the energy for what I do. My whole body seems alive with excitement. It had been easier for me to hide, I am now ready to be who I really am on my path. I want to continue to sparkle. A lot has come and continues to come, I just can’t thank you enough.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have no experience with shamanism I'm worried I won't understand
No previous experience with shamanism, drumming or meditation is necessary. The course takes you step by step through the basics of shamanic practice and the structure of a shamanic journey. The exercises are easy to follow and have as much depth and meaning as you give them. You will have the opportunity to ask questions via the facebook group and during any live calls that are offered.
Will this course help me work as a Shamanic Practitioner?
This practice connects you with the basics of Shamanic practice, so that you can personally connect to the shamanic universe as part of your healing path. It does not qualify you to work as a Shamanic Practitioner or carry out shamanic techniques, journeys or healings for others.
What if I already work with sound journeys, drumming, shamanism and/ or spirit guides Is this going to be too basic for me?
No! If you feel called to join this course, there is healing to be done and there is always something to learn from experiencing the shamanic journey. This course does cover the basics and will encourage you to look at all of your current practices and ways that you work with spirit and connect with the other realms with fresh eyes and a new perspective. Our path to wholeness and working with spirit unfurls in layers and there is always something to learn from even what we might first perceive as simple teachings.
I might need some extra 1:1 assistance, is this something you offer too?
1:1 is always available with Fay - get in touch.
How long do I have access to the course?
Lifetime access for as long as the course is running! You can access whenever you need to and also it's possible to download the content too.
I'm on the fence about joining and the investment feels huge, what should I do?
Consider Shamanism Basics as way more than just a course. It is a way to live your life to feel a richer and deeper connection with the natural world and restore your soul. The teachings come with professional support via a supportive Facebook group where you'll be a voice not an echo among a community of like-minded people who are on the path..
I'm busy, and don’t have much spare time to study, how long does the course take?
Each lesson is divided into short 20 - 30 minute sections so you won't find hours of video to watch in one go. The amount of time you take on the practical exercises is up to you. A typical practice journey can last anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. The Shamanic path is not a linear process. The time that you put into practicing your journeys will reap rewards and your path will proceed at the perfect pace for you. Once you have learnt these basic skills they are yours to refine, practice and develop as your relationship with the spirit world expands.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.



A world of wonder awaits you as you step outside your ordinary reality and discover your shamanic nature - I'm excited to guide you on this path!
