Weekend workshop: “Connecting to Spirits of Land”. Residential intensive
29th November – 1st December 2019

This autumn British Reclaiming/Feri Witch Raven Edgewalker will visit the Netherlands to give a special workshop. During this weekend intensive we offer the opportunity to build relationships and deepen our existing connections to the land upon which we dwell, and the (un)seen Spirits that we share it with.

Join us in this experiential, participatory workshop where we will work to learn tools to open our senses to what these spirits might have to tell us, to build relationships, and to deepen those that we already have. We will listen to their voices and their needs and perhaps answer their call to step into ally-ship. We will use words and silence, trance and ritual, art and creativity, divination and other tools to engage with the Spirits of Land and Place.

This workshop is open to any folk regardless of experience level, who are 18 and over.

Date, Time & Venue
The workshop will start on Friday evening (29th November, 18:00) and close on Sunday afternoon (1st December 2019, 16:00). Participants are expected to attend for all sessions of the workshop.

The venue is in a beautiful, wooded location in the east of the Netherlands. The location is easily accessible by car and public transport, as well as being wheelchair accessible. It includes an accessible toilet and shower. You can indicate any other accessibility needs with your booking.

The Workshop is fully residential. Directions, Location and other information will be given closer to the start of the workshop.

The workshop will be in English, we can offer assistance with some language translation, but are not offering full translation into Dutch.

About Raven
Raven Edgewalker sees her work in the world as that of building connections, with self, with each other, with and within community, with the world, with deity and with seen and unseen beings. Raven has spent many years walking the land, listening to the songs, stories and poems that it has to offer, deepening her own connection with this glorious earth and learning how to guide others to open to deeper connections of their own.
She has been working, studying and teaching magic in both the Anderson Feri and Reclaiming traditions for over 20 years and is an initiate in both traditions.

About the organisers
For over 20 years Soleil has been working internationally to improve accessibility, with a strong focus on social and spiritual accessibility. She was born with a (physical) handicap.
Soleil consciously chose paganism and now is in the teachings of the (Anderson) Feri tradition.
In her daily job she works as a volunteer coordinator at a large organisation. She used to be a professional music teacher an she has studied herbal medicine to be able to use the good medicine nature offers on the roadside.
Soleil is a natural animist who likes to communicate with everything that crosses her path. Any chat or talk with her will often turn out being about the meaning of life, spiritual drive and the beauty of trees.

Jochem is a pagan who doesn’t follow a specific path, and is experienced in reiki, core shamanism, and more. He likes to do interesting workshops (like this one), and is convinced these workshops should be available in the Netherlands too.
In mundane life Jochem is a queer & disability activist, who combines his experiences in the LGBTI and disability worlds. For some years now, he has a (non-visible) disability, which means he had to close his coaching practice.

A couple of days ago we visited the venue, to make sure it is as accessible as they say on their website. (It is.)
We were impressed by the venue, the place, the spirits and the omnipresent feeling of rest and peace. (You'll find a couple of pictures in the comments of the event on Facebook. We are happy to email them to you, if you don't have access to Facebook.)
We chose well! [Smile]

Now we're even more looking forward to have this workshop in this place! And meet all the participants, who have booked already.

We still have a couple of places left. So, if you didn't decide yet, please do so soon, and book an very interesting weekend in an amazing place!

The World is on fire.
The World is drowning.
The World is in chaos.
The Land and its Spirits are crying out for help, for healing, for support and for allies.

Regardless of borders, of political divisions, of location NOW is the time to open all our senses to answer the call, to learn and relearn what it is to be in relationship to the spirits of the land on which we walk, to enter into ally ship, to take action.

Would you open yourself to the spirits of the land? To the land itself?

We have only a few places left on this workshop - come and join us.

“Connecting to Spirits of Land” workshop very special

The residential intensive “Connecting to Spirits of Land” with Raven Edgewalker was quite an intense and special event. We deepened our existing connections, and made new connections to all kind of Spirits of Land. “Great content. Great company, ” according to a participant.

On Friday the 29th of November a group of ten people met at a nice old farm house in Neede. With participants from all over the Netherlands, France and UK it was an international gathering. Due to a couple of last minute withdrawls (because of flu and similar force majeure) the group was slightly smaller than expected.

Raven had some very interesting stuff for us, with personal assignments, group work, (guided) trances, and creative work. The weather was beautiful, although it was very cold, so we did some of our work outside.

“I loved the balance between being taught, exploring the theme and just going with the flow of what showed up! ”

All of us were amazed by the land of the venue. It feeled so good and peaceful. It was immediately clear to all of us that this land is crowded by spirits. Spirits who are very happy and healthy. This made our residential intensive more intense than we dared to dream about.

The success of this residential intensive made it clear this won’t be the last weekend we organised. Do you want to know more? Please email to and we’ll keep you updated.

“Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! ”


Workshop “Verbinden met Spirits van het Land” heel bijzonder

De weekend workshop “Verbinden met Spirits van het Land” met Raven Edgewalker was een heel intens en bijzonder evenement. We hebben onze bestaande relaties verdiept en nieuwe relaties opgebouwd met allerlei Spirits van het Land. “Geweldige inhoud. Geweldige groep”, aldus een deelnemer.

Op vrijdag 29 november ontmoette een groep van tien mensen elkaar in een mooie oude boerderij in Neede. Met deelnemers uit heel Nederland, Frankrijk en het VK was het een internationaal gezelschap. Vanwege een aantal afmeldingen op het laatste moment (door griep en dergelijke overmacht) was de groep iets kleiner dan verwacht.

Raven had zeer interessante dingen voor ons, met persoonlijke opdrachten, groepswerk, (geleide) trances en creatief werk. Het weer was prachtig, hoewel het erg koud was, dus deden we een deel van ons werk buiten.

"Ik was erg blij met de balans tussen onderwezen worden, het thema verkennen en gewoon meegaan met de stroom van wat er langskwam!"

We waren allemaal onder de indruk van het land bij de accomodatie. Het voelde zo goed en vredig. Het was ons allemaal meteen duidelijk dat dit land vol zit met spirits. Spirits die heel gelukkig en gezond zijn. Dit maakte onze weekend workshop intenser dan we hadden durven dromen.

Het succes van deze weekend workshop maakte duidelijk dat dit niet het laatste weekend is dat we organiseren. Wil je meer weten? Mail naar en we houden je op de hoogte.

“Dank jullie dank jullie dank jullie dank jullie dank jullie! ”
