In 2012 we first took the Shamanic Street Preachers out to meet the public, performing at a range of exciting festivals across Britain. We encouraged people to to wonder at the richness of human societies in the past, to follow in the footsteps of ancestors and explore their wild side!
The ‘Shamanic Street Preachers’ draw on thousands of years experience to give you the chance to get a new perspective on the world. Shamans mediated between animals and humans, ourselves and the spirit world, the living the dead. They healed through ceremony, ritual, music and dance.
With our costumes and disguises we bring out the beast in you and breathe new life into Shamanic ideals at the Great British festivals.
In 2012 we were at
July 19th – 22nd 2012

This was one of our biggest events and we were joined by our own Shaman, Henry Dosedla and the musician Dylan Adams.

10th -12th August 2012
Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire
We could not resist the lure of a festival called Wilderness. The Shamanic Street Preachers set out to convert the public to our way of being through a series of talks and workshops where folk became Shamanic through ceremony and disguise.
17th – 19th August 2012
Glanusk Estate, Crickhowell
The Green Man is one of us, he often merges human and animal form by sporting a fine set of antlers. . We returned to Einstein’s Garden with a focus Shamanic Science or as we think of it, magic! Our popularity was measure in mud! We had the swampiest spot due to our numerous visitors and, once again, really enjoyed the welcome and interest of the Green Man crowd.
23rd – 27th August 2012
Nr Market Harbourough
We finished the festival season in style preaching from our own Shamanic Yurt at Shambala. Returning to the themes explored at Secret Garden we offered all comers the chance to make music, art and new friends at our action camp.
