A Very Warm Welcome

Lectures, Workshops & Roundtables

Are you seeking a deeper connection with the mystical and magickal aspects of life? Are you yearning for transformative, transcendental, and ecstatic experiences that bring meaning and healing to your soul?

We are thrilled to extend an invitation to join us for Women of Wisdom: A Celebration of the Immaterial. Our community of exceptional women is dedicated to lifting the veil and embarking on a supersensible adventure that will reconnect us with the immaterial, ephemeral, and imaginal aspects of our lives.

With over 20 hours of insightful lectures, engaging workshops, and thought-provoking round tables ready for you to watch at your leisure, we want to make sure you get the most out of this experience. That’s why we’ve created a private Facebook group exclusively for participants like you, where you can engage in lively debates and discussions with like-minded individuals. This is the perfect chance to connect with others who share your interests and exchange ideas in a supportive, friendly environment.

Together, we will remember ourselves and rediscover the power of the mystical and the magickal. We’ll explore ancient wisdom, share personal stories, and engage in transformative practices that will help us connect with our innermost selves and tap into the divine energy that surrounds us.

We invite you to join us on this journey of self-discovery and spiritual awakening. Let’s embrace the immaterial and celebrate the magic of life.



Ecstasy is a technique highly developed by shamans, mystics, magicians and others with healing and psychic-transformation powers. It is an altered state of consciousness characterized by significantly reduced external awareness and expanded interior mental and spiritual awareness, frequently accompanied by visions and emotional euphoria. There are many ways to access it, but through this discussion, we explore how the cultivation and application of sexual energy can transform a physical act into a spiritual experience, deepening a connection with your partner and creating truly ecstatic experiences. Beyond that, we look at the application of sexualizing energies to fuel a longer life span, as well as the activation of human superpowers or supersensible faculties lying dormant in most humans.

Featuring Dr Joana Kujawa and Vanese Mc Neill

The Mushrooms Apprentice

By Shonagh Home

Sacred Mushroom: The Making of a Medicine Woman.

Of Celtic heritage, Shonagh follows the wisdom of the ancients and serves as a Bàn Draoi (dree), Gaelic for a Celtic medicine woman/seer. As a modern medicine woman, she brings her connection to nature and the spirit worlds into her retreats and private sessions. For the past 12 years she has apprenticed herself to the mushroom teachers, who have led her to profound connection with the spirits of nature and her ancestral roots. She is a seer who specializes in shadow work, delving into the rich territory of the deep psyche. In this talk Shonagh will speak to working with spirit intelligences through the mushroom.




Author and Artist Veda Austin makes a quantum leap from the spring board of Masaru Emoto’s microscopic work with ice crystals, that allows us to view water as an intelligent force, with the power to respond to human consciousness in ways never before thought possible. In this talk Veda talks about humans as bodies of water, what that means for us, and specifically the Wild Waters of Women!


The Magdalen Manuscript

One of the few texts that looks at sexual energetics from the females perspective, the Magdalen Manuscript is perhaps the most fascinating example of Tom Kenyon’s unique ability for tuning in to spiritual frequencies. The heart of the book is a word-for-word account given to him by a being identifying herself as Mary Magdalen, recorded with the help of co-author Judi Sion. In this text this being tells the story of her sacred relationship with Yeshua ben Joseph, today known as Jesus Christ. She delivers a poignant and beautiful account of the love they shared – not as master and disciple, but as equals – as well as the nature of the sexual alchemy they practiced together to prepare him for his role as the most pivotal spiritual leader in the Western world. In this roundtable discussion we discuss our first hand experiences with the practices discussed in this text.

Roundtable Discussion featuring Dr Joanna Kujawa, Dr Heather Roberts, Dr Laura Ancilli and Vanese Mc Neill

Roundtable Discussion

Is Magick Really Real? For real?

Featuring Shonagh Homes, Tina Kemp and Dr Laura Ancilli
As Arthur C Clarke said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from Magic”, and so with consciousness an enigma for today’s scientists, the idea of an advanced technology of Applied Consciousness fits right into the category of Magick! While the practice of magick is fundamentally about raising and directing energy to fulfil your intentions, there are two other Clarke laws applicable to the discussion of magick, and these are….
  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

Let’s explore the impossible together with the Magickal Women who live it!



By Laura Watkins

We all have experienced the effects of music on our souls. It can take us back in time to some of the most important occasions of our lives. But what if music could be used alchemically to heal, remove things that no longer serve you, or express creativity? In this workshop, Laura will take us on a journey into the alchemy of music and teach us how to use this powerful tool in our lives!




Co-creating with subtle realms through the wisdom of the body

Come remember that you have powerful magic in your blood and bones. We are a part of a beautiful, vibrant Universe, pulsating with life and intelligence. Our heart beats for us over 100,000 times per day; our lungs breathe for us 22,000 times a day. Epigeneticists tell us we contain 13 generations of memories.  At this very moment, your body allows you to read this text. Connecting to our body wisdom, consciously through the state of play, connects us to the unconscious field of knowing/belonging and to our Kin, sometimes known as Fae, Nature Spirits, Cosmic energies, and/or Ancestors. Play opens neural pathways, relaxes the mind, creates community and helps us to enter into relationships of co-creation that are mutually beneficial for all.

Connect with the wisdom of your body
Learn how to co-create with Subtle Realms
Connect to your allies for mutually-beneficial creations
Experience the power of play to transform, heal and create
Engage the spirit of collaboration in connection and community

Speaks of Shonagh

I highly recommend Tina’s Rune Readings.    The readingwas really helpful and insightful.  Tina went into detail about the meaning of each of the three runes as she pulled them, and then discussed the meaning of the three together. Overall, it was a great experience and really helped me.

On Tina Kemp

A remarkable investigation.  Veda Austin has produced some interesting and impressive images which go way beyond what would be expected on the basis of conventional science.  I hope that her pioneering work will stimulate others to follow up with systematic investigations of their own”.

Ancient Goddess Traditions

by Heather Elizabeth Osborn

Dr. Heather Elizabeth Osborn has a Doctorate in Education, with experience as an educator teaching in the US and the UK. While living in London, she pursued research on Goddess Mythology in women’s literature and completed her Priestess of Avalon training in Glastonbury to initiate into the ancient British Goddess mysteries. Upon returning to the US, she continued her writing, research, and exploration of ancient Goddess mysteries, creating an online course and organizing spiritual retreats to sacred sites as the founder of the Swan Centre. Her media work as a radio co-host and as a TV presenter as a contributing expert includes various Discovery Channel shows, such as ‘Forbidden History,’ ‘Inside Secret Society,’ and ‘What On Earth?’ Heather’s doctoral research for her dissertation focused on the importance of “writing for healing,” within an individual and social context to create transformational change. As a university educator, she encourages her students to find their individual voices through writing and expression, and as a writer, educator, and priestess, she is committed to honoring diversity and creating inclusive opportunities for connection and unity. One of her current writing projects includes her continued work on her book, ‘In the Eyes of Isis,’ about her personal and spiritual journey with Goddess traditions and various landscapes, the basis for her talk for ‘Women of Wisdom.’ Following this inner connection led to her most precious gifts in her life, her son Sean and her husband, author Gary Osborn, and the understanding that, at the center of all, our inner connectedness to love is what fuels the fire of inspiration, healing, empowerment, and transformational wisdom about our life paths.
