Our Teachers

Manda Scott

Manda Scott is author of the Boudica: Dreaming series and the creator of the Dreaming Awake training programme. She has taught courses since 2004 striving to find clear, repeatable structures by which modern people living busy lives can make genuine, authentic – and safe – heart connections with the earth. Her most senior apprentices have been training with her for fifteen years and she is delighted to welcome them to the teaching roster. Manda teaches the second cycle of the wheel – from Ancestor Gate to 10th Gate. For a more detailed look into the background of the Dreaming, see here

Louise Mayor

Louise is Manda’s senior apprentice. She teaches the first cycle of the wheel – from the Foundation course through to Centre Gate. She is passionate about exploring her connection to the land, the gods, and starting from a place of authenticity in all things.

My grandfather introduced me to the concept of energy and it’s movements as a small child, and opened my eyes to its uses in healing, and it was with a feeling of being welcomed home that I found Dreaming Awake as a circle I could join, and grow in my understanding of the seen and unseen world around me.

The Dreaming has helped me develop ways to integrate ritual practice into daily life, and maintain a heart mind connection, even in the busy world of an inner city. As my own shamanic practice continues to broaden, I am honoured to be able to hold the space for other dreamers to explore their practice.


“Intent. Integrity. Integration. These three are the pillars on which a shamanic spiritual life stands. We hone our intent, we check our integrity, we integrate our authentic selves into a life which reflects our clarity in every waking and sleeping moment.”
