I’m passionate about plants and people and the beautiful medicine that flows when we embody our sacred relationship with the Earth, ourselves and each other. My clients love to work with me because I open up doorways to the spirits of the natural world and help them discover the magic of the green kingdom, remember the wisdom of the ancestors and reconnect with their power and true sense of who they are. I don’t simply act as a channel for natural world that relays messages and provides healing. That’s not my style. I teach you to receive and interpret the guidance and wisdom in your own magical way. To help you learn to trust your intuition, embody your power, be your own authority and feel confident about your life path. As both a creative and a visionary, with one foot in the spirit world and one in this reality, I love to bring the extraordinary into the ordinary. I hold a sacred space for my clients to experience deep transformation and lasting change. Applying Shamanic techniques, the alchemy of nature and spirit inspired guidance to nourish your soul, I can help you remember your magic, learn to trust your intuition, release old patterns of shame, reawaken ancient wisdom within you and reclaim your power to become fully aligned with the real you.
I like to go outside, just after waking up, to refill the bird bath in the garden, check out the frog pond, say hello to the birds, watch the golfers just behind the gate, possibly remove a piece of poo the fox has left behind. Being out like this and pottering around first thing in the morning makes me feel connected. Connected to the two and the four-legged, the winged ones and the little crawlers in the garden. Connected to the water, the wind and the trees. And connected to the universal life source, the creation, the creator. Being connected is the most important driver of good shamanic and good energy work. These connections give me wisdom and positive power. Whether I do my work or just go about my life, I remind myself to always think about my impact on the world around me. Based on native American tradition, we sometimes say: “Mitakuye Oyasin”, which means “to all our relations”. I was born and raised in Switzerland. Spending time in the mountains and hiking close to the wild waters has been important to me all my life. Even as a kid, when exhausted from a hike, I noticed that I could put my hand on a warm rock and refill my energy levels. I also seemed to ‘know’ much more when I was close to the rocks; were they whispering to me about their ancient knowledge? Only much later in life could I make sense of all this, but first… I became an organisational development consultant, facilitator and executive coach. While living in the USA, some of my Native American friends offered me some initial teachings about Earth Medicine and the healing powers of the sweatlodge. This felt like going ‘home’. And this is where I was given my name – Silverbear – which I now use for the Lodge. Later, back in Europe, I intensified my training in the areas of Reiki, contemporary shamanism and soul midwifery – as well as Martial Arts. Some people are confused when I tell them about all the different aspects of my life, but for me it is rather ‘normal’ to do all this and still coach people in organisations. Many years ago, I ‘journeyed’ to find out about my purpose. It is being a bridge. I am glad to be of service.Each term we have weekly talks and demonstrations hosted by respected authorities on a broad range of subjects. Over the years, our audiences have told us how our wide variety of talks and demonstrations has opened doors for them to explore new areas of thought. The College was founded in 1884 by a group of eminent scholars and scientists. Its purpose was to facilitate formal investigation into the psychic and mediumistic phenomena that were such a topic of debate in the Victorian era. With great courage, this group of distinguished people, some notable in science, others from within the ranks of the Anglican clergy, defied the prevailing canons of respectability in order to proclaim to a world of increasing materialism that human personality survives bodily death and that this is capable of demonstration. In 1925 the freehold of our existing premises at 16 Queensberry Place, South Kensington was purchased using donations from those who, in their war bereavement, had received consolation from the knowledge and experience of mediumship and spiritualism. The College President at that time was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As one of the oldest establishments of its kind, the nature of our work has evolved to incorporate a more general and widely-based exploration of consciousness beyond matter. The core of our studies retains a strong focus on the development and understanding of mediumship, psychic ability and healing, as well as the growing capacity of science to explain and explore these phenomena. The College has accumulated a fine collection of specialist books, photographs and documents which have been used and studied by generations of scholars. It also has a distinguished catalogue of artwork from prominent spirit artists including Ethel Le Rossignol and Georgiana Houghton. We continue to build on what has uniquely gone before, and welcome the perceived truths of all spiritual and related traditions and each and every individual. The values on which we focus in the College lectures, workshops and courses are devoted to increasing awareness and understanding of these truths.
