My first book, Natural Born Shamans, was published in 2016.

In this (mini) workshop I revisit some of the material presented in this book adapted to Pandemic times.

I will run through different age groups and discuss how they are impacted by the Pandemic and then present some shamanic tools for the times we live in.

This workshop is FREE, so no one is excluded for financial reasons. The only prerequisite for attending is a genuine desire to reach out to a child (or children plural) in any capacity (parent or grandparent, teacher, youth leader, mentor, concerned neighbor, sports coach etc.

The Green Bear is a series of picture book for children, aged 3 – 8 years. The stories and vibrant artwork, set in Scandinavia, invite children to explore enchanting parallel worlds and to keep their sense of magic alive as they grow up.

Imelda has presented her work on both The Shift Network and Sounds True. She appears in a TV program, titled Ice Age Shaman, made for the Smithsonian Museum, in the series Mystic Britain, talking about Mesolithic arctic deer shamanism.

Imelda is currently working on a handbook for rune magicians (about the runes of the Elder Futhark) and on more books in the Green Bear Series. Imelda runs an on-line school called Pregnant Hag Teachings, where all classes she teaches remain available as recordings which can be watched any time!
