Welcome to Spirit of the Inca
We provide a system of ancient and modern healing practices, courses, trainings, workshops and journeys specifically designed to help you grow in spirit, to heal the wounds of the past, and to cultivate a fulfilling and authentic life for your future… a future where you make a positive difference in our world, leaving your footprint softly in the new earth that is emerging.

SPIRIT OF THE INCA eNEWSLETTER
Our newsletters are published four times a year. We share our news, the dates of our annual Medicine Wheel training, our Masterclass workshops in Glastonbury, our Sacred Journeys to Peru, our 'Introduction to Shamanism' workshops, and the inspirational work of our community, our 'allyu'. We may occasionally send an extra email if we're running an extra workshop or to let you know if a workshop is full. (We do not share our mailing list!)
It is also an opportunity to share the collective creative talents of our alumni - poems, artwork, music, and anything else that has emerged from shamanic training with us.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing some of the feedback that we've received from our students. Thank you to everyone who shared their experiences, and have told us what stepping into our 'training for life' has meant to them.
Laurie Lathom-Sharp shares his journey around the Medicine Wheel (2016-17)
'Well, that was a ride wasn’t it!
"Not long ago I attended one of Chris Waters’ introductory days, and to be honest, although interesting and with many lovely people, I didn’t fall in love with it. A lot of the work we did that day was ceremonial and very ‘feeling’ based, not satisfying my logical, practical mind which likes to be stimulated with more and more information and problem solving.
"When it came to speaking with Chris about the Wheel, it was at a busy time for me, running a business, developing another, and just about to have a long overdue holiday. The last thing I thought I ‘should’ be doing was to be committing myself to four weeks of training in something like ‘shamanism’?!
"But something in me knew better than my easily distracted mind and its’ love of shiny, temporal things. I loved Chris’ knowledge and passion, which came with an everyday grounded attitude that kept things in the real world. And there was something in it that appealed on a deeper level, a knowing that I needed to go through this process to move on in life. Perhaps I was actually, somewhere, fearing the power of what I was about to step into, because believe me, it is a powerful, experiential ride of a course, and a week or so after completing the Wheel I can see and feel the positive effects it has had on me and my life.
"There is no way I can describe all that goes on in those four weeks, as we cover so much, from philosophy and psychology, to energy medicine and working with spirit. All this is done with the support of a great team, and the company of a strongly bonded group of new friends.
"You will dig to some depths and go through the dirt now and then, but the gold is what you will find.
"If you feel it, or have a knowing within you, even if the feeling is not one of over excitement, but more of curiosity and slight trepidation, then grab the opportunity to be taught by Chris Waters, a down to earth teacher, of great integrity and wisdom'
"Enjoy the journey.”
