The Edinburgh Shamanic Centre

Re-awakening ancient wisdom in our modern society

Who we are

The Edinburgh Shamanic Centre is situated in the outskirts of Balerno, South West of Edinburgh and was founded in 2003 by Claudia Goncalves and Mark Halliday.

Claudia and Mark are also co-founders of the Planetary Healing Centre, a Holistic Centre in Portobello where they also run shamanic weekly groups and various projects for the community.

Passionate by the Shamanic ways of being and living, we work closely and supporting community in many ways and levels. We have a deep commitment to the ancestral ways, teaching the ways of living from the heart, the ways of harmony, humility, self-empowerment and treading lightly on our Earth Mother.

What inspires us

Our inspiration comes from the examples of indigenous communities all around the world where since the very beginning of human times, they always worked together for the benefit of the whole, working in communion with Great Spirit to receive and pass on deep spiritual teachings, blessings and healing.

How we work

Our work is always moved by great joy, gratitude, a deep sense of responsibility, deep commitment and service to our Earth Mother and to all Her children.

With our Shamanic work, we help people manifest their dreams and visions. We help people to empower themselves and find the inner voice of Great Spirit within. Guided by that inner voice and coming from the heart, one begins to remember who they truly are, becomes happy, stronger, secure, confident and fully empowered.
