Shivam O'Brien, Master Ceremonialist
Shivam has almost 30 years experience in ritual. Commanded by an inner prompting of an undeniably rebellious Celtic nature, a culture has been born again in the wildest valley in Wales. Spirit Horse has been founded on the revelation that the ancient ways are as crucial as ever to our collective wellbeing. He is the keeper of stories, an old poet able to speak between the worlds.
Shivam is a wild force of creativity. He has travelled to far flung places to assist in rituals of great complexity and meditate in temples where the blessing power of gurus was banging off the walls. Some of his teachers are legendary.
With Surrender Tantra, Shivam shares his teachings with both the men and the women, and holds the men's circle as Master of Ceremony. Shivam brings a unique presence, an ancient voice and a much needed masculine gravity to the renewing and the honouring of the feminine.
These worshops flow from flashes of inspiration which must be followed, a deeply meditated creativity that I endeavour to handle with care and weave with strands of deep rooted tradition.
I offer these shared explorations playfully, with respect, and with love.

Miriam Annabelle Moncur
Arriving to the Spirit Horse village in 2016, Miriam apprenticed herself, making a courageous attempt to learn all she could about ritual, story, self enquiry, poetic speech, holding circle and sacred space. With the blessing of the women elders at Spirit Horse, it seems the creation of a new flowering femininity is happening, and Aphrodite's Temple is the name we have accorded it. And Miryam has proved herself a capable captain at the helm.
Miriam displays a naturally open womanly energy that is bold and fun, yet insists on depth and reality. She holds the Priestess Lodge circle. Last year the Temple leapt into being under her resolve and guiding hand. She invites courageous Truth into the so often hidden female realm; the mythical, the unseen, that which is so magical it cannot be talked about.
I love being so damn vulnerable that every moment I am learning and undressing. I give up. I just surrender, and follow my gut, and listen. When I get in the way of life, I move out the way. I claim no ownership here. It just happens.
I took my place among the women in the Priestess Lodge last year. I felt that nothing would side track us whilst Miriam held space.
We plunged into profound sacredness, invoking our inner goddess in the most feminine way; uninhibited, loving, accepting and devoted.
Thank you Miriam. Thank you to the women of the Lodge.
