Plant Spirit Shamanism

Communicate and heal with the Spirit of Plants and experience your Shamanic Nature

Imagine having the ability to access a magical world of plant spirits that you can turn to for support, guidance and healing. A walk in your favourite place in nature becomes an opportunity to deeply connect with the greater web of life and receive answers to the questions you hold in your heart.

The practice of Plant Spirit Shamanism brings to mind the deeply healing spiritual practices of indigenous medicine people of distant tribal cultures like in the Amazon or Africa. While these practises are inspirational for us and often life-changing, they are not the only way that we can connect with the spirit of plants on our shamanic path.

This online self-study course is an opportunity to bring your existing shamanic practice alive with the intelligence of the green world. Isn't it about time you developed a spiritual relationship with those green allies that are calling you and carry a special message of transformation at this time?

Plant Spirit Shamanism will help you build on your existing plant connections, knowledge and experiences with the use of shamanic tools such as shamanic journeying, meditation, attuning with the seasons and intuitive nature connection.

The exercises will help you remember your innate relationship with your plant allies and build solid plant relationships that will bring back balance and harmony into your energy body. As you attune to plant spirit guides and the cycles and seasons of the Earth you will be encouraged to develop a grounded and safe plant spirit shamanism practice.

Plant Spirit Shamanism gives you the opportunity to invite in a bigger world and tap into your intuitive gifts. You will be assisted in receiving, channeling and interpreting the guidance from the green world and opening to plant spirit guides who can lead you through the shamanic worlds of alternate reality. You will be able to seek guidance and support through the process of journeying and connect with the wisdom of the natural world as a way of life. With assistance from the plants you will bridge the spirit world and your reality to bring back guidance and healing for yourself, your community and the earth.

You will meet plants for energy clearing, protection, guidance and healing to nourish your spirit and provide you with greater clarity about your calling and life purpose. As well as helping you feel supported, guided, inspired and energised, you will learn sacred tools and medicine techniques to weave the unique vibration of plant spirits into your daily life. Sipping a herbal tea, sitting under your favourite tree, a walk in the local park or growing your own garden will all become a magical way to connect as you allow the enchantment of the plant spirits to take the lead.

I did a workshop with Fay on plant spirits where we connected and communicated with plants. This may sound weird but the plant told me to get out there and share my gifts with the world. I then left the place I was working at. I started a business, did a healing course and now I am moving! Thanks Flower, you spoke, I listened and took action!!

Is Plant Spirit Shamanism for you?

A basic knowledge of the western shamanic practice of shamanic journeying is recommended to get the most from this course. It's recommended that you already have experienced shamanic journeying as a process to enter an altered state of consciousness. If you do not have this foundational practice start with the course Shamanism Basics. If you are new to the plant path you may also find useful resources and tools in my foundation course Plants that Speak

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 learn Reiki or Shamanic techniques or connect with plants and nature in a meaningful, magical and life changing way. I also offer one to one healing sessions online and from my home in Scotland.

My books are available here: Plants that Speak, Souls that Sing and Plant Spirit Reiki

I have loved everything about this course. It was worth every penny to me. I loved hearing and seeing how Fay did things to give me new ideas or encourage me that I was on the right track. I love the meditations and the course videos.

Frequently Asked Questions

I live in a city - can I benefit from this course?
Yes!! The exercises and practices in the program encourage you to start exactly where you are. You will be connecting with plants in the spirit world / invisible realms, so although it's highly beneficial to connect physically with nature for example with a house plant or plants growing outside, this is not necessary.
I have no knowledge about plants or experience with shamanism I’m worried I won’t understand.
No previous experience with plants is necessary. However, you will get more from the course if you have an interest in or prior experience with shamanic journeying. The course Shamanism basics takes you step by step through this, so I suggest you follow this course, before starting PLant Spirit Shamanism. 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.
Will this course help me work as a shamanic practitioner?
This practice connects you with the spirit of a plant, through shamanic journey work and other tools. The skills you will learn in this online course are for your personal development only. In order to practice with clients as a shamanic practitioner I would recommend that you seek further training to help you develop the key skills required when working with clients and running a safe shamanic practice that helps others.
I already work with plants, flower essences, herbal medicine and/or plant spirits. 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 a plant that is waiting for you. This course will encourage you to look at all of your current practices and ways that you work with spirit and with plants 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?
Yes, several different one to one services are available, together with group shamanic coaching, 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 these courses as way more than just a course. The shamanic path 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 and a supportive Facebook group where you'll be a voice not an echo among a community of like-minded plant people who understand and feel the same way you do about plants.
I'm busy, and don’t have much spare time to study, how long does the course take?
Each module 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 and journal questions is up to you. The plant spirit path is like a spiral, it is not a linear process. The time that you put into the connections with the plants reaps rewards! You have lifetime access to the content so there is no hurry.
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.
I don't use Facebook is that an issue?
No facebook, no problem. Many students choose not to connect via the facebook group. As long as you have access to the internet to download the course content you will be able to access the core teaching material.



Green Magic awaits you - I'm excited to guide you on this plant spirit path!
