About the event

As we dive deeper into autumn and ourselves, we reach a point where knowing and honouring our ancestors is a stepping stone for our inner growth. And what better way to do this if not through a shamanic practice, held by Leandro all the way from New Zealand. If you never experienced a shamanic ritual, then you are in for a treat. Leandro's humour, direct and loving nature is just perfect for the occasion. And to quote him on what to expect at this session, " you might not get what you want but you will get what you need."

Autumn is a time when the veil between the world of the living and the dead is very thin, the spirit world and the world of perceived reality become much less defined as we enter into darkness and dream earlier in the day.

This is reflected in many cultures throughout the world, the one most familiar for us is the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead, also practiced in Europe in times gone by during and long before the influence of christianity.

On this night I welcome you to join us, to hear the beat of the drum guiding you into an altered state of consciousness, where you can reconnect to your departed loved ones or cherished friends that are no longer with us in this reality. To celebrate them, to remember them, to send them love and receive theirs, to speak their name and remember their story.

You are encouraged to bring a photo of your departed loved ones with you, to share their story if you wish to remember them.

Ervin Yolam once said 'we die twice, once when we actually die and again the last time someone speaks our name' lets keep their spirit alive. 

Please bring with you a blanket, cushion and eye mask for your comfort, dress warm and comfy.

Leandro D'Andrea is born and raised in New Zealand, surrounded by the ancient and inspiring beauty that is Tongariro National Park, Leandro shares his Core Shamanic teachings in a form that is respectful of all practitioners and cultures; taking a universal approach that is strongly influenced by the work of Michael Harner.

Apprenticed in Peruvian Shamanism to Dr Rubén Orellana PhD, Leandro’s shamanic path has lead him to work with traditional medicine plants, such as Ayahuasca in the Amazon Jungle and San Pedro in the high country of Peru. For the last eight years Leandro has studied the tradition of brewing Wachuma as passed down through generations of indigenous healers in Peru under the guidance of Maestro of San Pedro, Rubén Orellana. He also holds Psilocybin Retreats alongside psychotherapist Michele Costa Lukis in the Netherlands.

Leandro completed a three-year training in Core Shamanism with Simon Buxton of The Sacred Trust. His work is based on a strong belief that we are all connected and therefore we should all show love and respect to one another.

In the UK, Leandro works through his company and has worked with Michele Costa Lukis as a Shamanic Practitioner at Shamanic Space offering one on one healings, teaching others healing practices and shamanic practice as well as running circles and events. Leandro also holds weekly men’s groups for personal empowerment. His efforts for the future are to bring men back in touch with nature and to fully realise themselves as conscious men.

To further his studies, Leandro completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training with Ana Forrest in Bali whose founding principle lies in using a combination of shamanism and yoga as a means to heal the body, mind and spirit of pain, anxiety and trauma.

Leandro’s passion for New Zealand, the wilderness and shamanic practice lead to the creation of Wild Journey a spiritual journey and adventure tour through his homeland of New Zealand with the intention of bringing his clients back in touch with nature and themselves. In these tours, Leandro combines shamanic work from his own trainings with Maori healing practices and the nurturement the beautiful New Zealand landscape provides. In this tour he draws upon his expertise as a mountain leader, scout, shamanic practitioner, men’s group facilitator, fine dining chef and wilderness guide.

The benefits of training our curiosity muscle together:

🎈 discover new layers of ourselves, others and gain new skills.

🎈 get to dip our toes into all these wonderful things that happen out there without breaking the bank or needing to commit to further courses.

🎈 learn how to approach life with curiosity, open mind even when dull moments arrive.

🎈 relax into your perfectly imperfect self. Mistakes will be embraces as God know we will do plenty of those.

🎈 the dinner table stories will be less boring. Our family will be grateful.

🎈 becoming more interesting, curious and attractive. Our current and future partners will love it.

🎈 but most importantly, we will keep being curious even when shit hits the fan.


"The Monday Club was an amazing experience! It  became almost a habit to meet both new and familiar people in a cozy friendly circle. Facilitators were super interesting people, who softly and skilfully helped me to find something new about myself. And it was fun as well! Nora is the most joyful and caring person, who goes far and beyond to make you feel comfortable and welcome. I highly recommend this experience! " Svetlana B.
