TESTIMONIALS

'Jez Hughes radiates compassion and attentiveness, his insights are interesting and meaningful and he is generous with his time. I feel slightly awed at having experienced such an authentic healing... He might be an unlikely looking shaman, but he most certainly is a gifted one.'

NATURAL HEALTH MAGAZINE

'As an Airline Pilot in working in a very technical environment "Shamanic Healing" was not even in my vocabulary two years ago. However, when my life was turned upside down by a deep personal trauma I was left on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Conventional medicine could only offer drugs and counselling.The drugs I didn`t want to take, and the counselling was ineffective. I was recommended to contact Jez to book a healing session.The session was simply profoundly healing and life-changing. In a single moment, I felt all the weight of stress, trauma and worry disappear!! After the session I could actually laugh and joke about isses that had been heart-breaking to even think of before. That allowed me to recover within a matter of days.All commented on how well I looked, and I actually felt physically lighter and much more energetic.So I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Jez. He is a truly gifted,compassionate and empathic healer of very rare ability.'

JOHN HARRIS/ WILTSHIRE

'I just felt I needed to message you and give you a little update on whats happened since I came to you for healing. I can't remember feeling as good as I do now and its utterly fantastic. My husband is thrilled, not just for me, but for the fact he has a new me in his life! I'm still in shock to be honest that you have been able to do what anti depressents and therapists could quite simply not.....make me feel alive again. You really have an amazing gift and I am blessed to have found you and been a part of this unique talent. Many, many, many thanks.'

CARLA EMERY/ GLOUCESTERSHIRE

'I just wanted to thank you so much for the healing. Its given me anunderstanding of circumstances in my life I just couldn't see the
reasoning behind and because of this, I have a peace I've never known ever in my whole life. Also, the anger, the resentment and the grief, partly my own and partly from my father's South American Indian heritage, is now gone. And I don't feel persecuted and constantly hunted, though I know now why I had those feelings. Although I felt very tired after the healing, it wasn't the same tiredness that feels mixed with hopeless and burden. After the healing is like how I feel after running a marathon: tired, relieved I don't have to do it again and glad it's over yet with a sense of goodness. I'm ready to find out if the path I'm on is really right for me and to know more about my father's people. Again, I dont know how to thank you for giving that part of myself back and the peace I so longed for all my life'

CHRISTINA/ LONDON

'I received a shamanic healing from Jez. Ancestral issues cleared. I can't find the words to fully express the gratitude and joy I feel after the healing. Totally changed my life, and also the life of my Daughter and Granddaughter too. The women in my family line have really suffered for many generations. Doubt insecurity, depression, and fear., However, we are all natural healers, yet have never been able to fully shine due to this. Having a big cloud over us. Or for want of a better word a curse. Jez lifted this from me in one session! My Daughter and my Granddaughter are also feeling the benefits. Fear has gone, and I'm certain that the gifts passed down through my family line will now be used and not feared. This man is connected to some power greater than himself, and uses it with integrity and respect. I'm humbled. This work is profound. Thank you so much Jez.'

ELIZABETH ASHMORE

'It seems quite a long time since I drove from West Wales to meet with you for shamanic healing. I felt totally at home on your floor, covered in a blanket with the sound of drumming all around ! I can honestly say the time I spent with you has stayed with me, I felt understood and you listened very attentively. The information you gave after the healing session was incredibly accurate and made a huge impact. Since then something has lifted, I am lighter in myself and the change has been remarked upon by a number of friends - it has been quite transformational and for the first time in a long time I am looking forward to the future.'

STEPHANIE PETRIE/ WEST WALES

'I do not know what to say to express my gratitude so I danced a dance of gratitude last night to express my sheer joy I can now feel in my everyday life. I will dance in gratitude for a long time for the culmination of helpers in the world today that led me to you. My perception has changed to an awareness of beauty, clarity, sensitivity and joy in being alive. Where it was clouded and clogged it is unclogged and clean and I am not afraid any more. Most of all I can breathe the most beautiful breath. Thank you.'

FLORENCE OKWAN/ LONDON

'Not only is Jez an exceptional shamanic healer, but also a gifted astrologer. Although I have had my astrological chart analyzed in the past, Jez's interpretation was the most insightful and profound. His has an ability to intuitively see the bigger picture of what is going on in your world. He really digs deeply to extract your true essence and what the core issues are to be worked on. Several times I felt he was so in tune with me, he was able to take words right from my mouth!

In combination with a shamanic healing it has been the most powerful, magical healing experience. It is a privilege to work with him.'

SUSAN JANIKOWSKI/ LONDON

'After many years of soul searching and outside help from officially recognised sources with regards to my traumatic childhood neglect, physical, mental and sexual abuse; I was still experiencing ongoing effects like ripples on a pond of which were unrelenting in all manners of my personal and professional life. Through Jez and his remarkable gifts, I have found a new world in which I have found integrity; cohesion, completeness, unity a wholeness that I thought would never be mine.'

TAWNEE MORGAN/ EASTBOURNE

'I have had many healings over the years but none have had such a major transformation on my life to a point that I cannot believe how present I am every day! I still am truly amazed by the shift in me, in the three months since the healing I have achieved what I have been procrastinating about for years.'

TARA HARLEY/ BRIGHTON

'The healing session has changed my life. It was so powerful. I feel my dad is gone and have gained a new courage to make changes in my life.'

CHRISTIANNE VAN WIJK/ NEW ZEALAND

'I just want to THANK YOU for the healing. It was life changing experience. Thank you so very much!!'

TRAINING TESTIMONIALS

'I completed the Shamanic Practitioner course in 2013 with Jez. I started my journey on this path many years ago travelling to North and South America to work with Medicine men and women. All great learning and magnificent nature to work in. Yet the place where I finally found my treasure, and reclaimed my power, was here on this beautiful magical ancient island called England. In some woods just a hop skip and a jump away from my home. The word course does not describe the experience. It is magical, powerful, enchanting, transformational, deeply healing, and so much fun. Jez holds the space with authenticity and a genuine connection to this earth and to spirit. They dance around him and work through him like a beautiful symphony. I am at long last truly living the life of my dreams. Thank you Jez, and also Ali and Christian who support you, and work by your side. Life will thankfully never be the same again after this.'

ALISON MASON McDONALD

'I am so grateful and privileged to have been part of the incredible journey through the Four Seeds and the practitioner training. Jez holds the space with such integrity, passion, humour, energy and wisdom that it allows you to totally be yourself and express whatever emotions come up safely and without judgement. I have released deep rooted pain and fears, healed and found parts of my soul I thought were lost forever and never once did I feel I was going through this alone.The support and love shown by Jez, Ali, Christian, Bev and each of the friends I made on the course came from the heart and each of them bought their own unique love and gifts to help everyone through a life changing six months. The whole experience will stay in my heart forever, thank you.'

DONNA DAVIDSON

'I would like to express my deepest warmest thanks to Jez Hughes for his light, open, warm, humorous heart. Allowing me to feel safe and protected honored and welcomed on choosing to grow spiritually on this shamanic path. The connection to each in the circle is very special and heartfelt, honest and supportive, encouraging and nurturing. Realising we are all playing a part in relation to each other is profound and deeply moving as we are conditioned to think and act from an individual prospective. It opens our hearts and our eyes to seeing the importance of the health of the community. The knowledge and wisdom he imparts has come from a much deeper knowledge, accessed from spirit that connects the heritage of all good medicine men gone before. It is delivered just as it is, no hype or decoration. Our hearts are fed, our spirits are fed and our minds are fed.

I would like to talk about one aspect and what shamanism has meant for me. My ethnicity is African and my family is Christian and for me nothing has awakened me more to my spiritual nature than this. The gifts I have received from spirit and my ancestors, who were only to happy to adorn me with tremendous connection, fierce power of the warrior that radiates my individual spirit knowing at all times they have my back. They are encouraging me and with me at the difficult times and celebrating with me at the times when there is love, joy and hope. I know I have the strength and I have the courage to face anything life throws at me. There is no greater feeling of empowerment quite like this. My spirit helpers connected with me throughout the year in ceremony, in everyday life and through dreams. I am astonished at the uninhibited outpouring of help.

I want to express my gratitude for your love and friendship helping me to become who I am becoming. This is the way I have come into alignment with earth, the elements of fire, water, air, ancestors, and plant spirits. I know greater things will come for the benefit of all. Thank you Jez, Christian and Ali for your friendship, love and kindness.'

FLORENNCE OKWAN

'Jez has been an incredible mentor and healer. His invaluable guidance through the sacred initiations, connecting with the land and ancestors and journeying with spirit, has enabled me to fully embrace and refine my truth and set it free. He emanates such gentle humility and integrity. This is deeply reflected in those that are attracted to his presence and his magical workshops. We have now all become family due to these and created life long bonds. Few experiences in life reach such remote and uncultivated regions of the heart, unearthing material that is incredibly fertile. Touching the deepest, rawest reservoirs of the soul. Thank you Jez for bringing such enlightenment to my life.'

KIM RUDD

'If I had just a word to describe my experience of the 'Four Seeds Training' then that word would be 'profound'. It was a process in which I found myself discovering a new yet also familiar world, both inside and outside myself. The experience has given me a healing and focus that has enhanced me; and based on that I would recommend it to anyone seeking spiritual evolution and a more expanded heart, through a process of wisely and sincerely guided shamanic practice.'
 
 CHRISTIAN TIMONY

'I've always felt a very strong need for shamanic work in my life but was hesitant to search for healing or initiations. I feared such experience the West would be fake. When I first met Jez over a year ago, I was overwhelmed by his warmth, honesty, openness and utter sincerity. I felt I could trust him on the spot and ,as a result, after a few eye-opening healing sessions, I decided to take the plunge and go for Shamanic Practitioner workshops in the woods.

I was hesitant to say the least – shamanic work is no walk in the park. It's more like tearing trough bushes in a forest. It was a huge challenge – personally, emotionally and spiritually – to go through the workshops. This said, it was also a wholly rewarding and healing experience in a very safe, blessed woodland environment. Teachings shared, ceremony, interaction with the group, being away from urban landscape – were all invaluable to my development. I felt completely safe and held throughout the whole experience and cannot recommend Jez enough as a mentor and shamanic practitioner.'

HANNA SKOMRA

´My first real experience of shamanism was having a healing with Jez in 2006. Following this, I became intensely interested in Shamanism and yearned to explore the new vision of life which had begun to open through the healing. I soon bought myself a drum and began attending workshops Jez ran. Throughout this time I watched my life slowly begin to undergo a huge transformation, drawing in experiences and tools which allowed me to cast off the anxiety and exhaustion which had held me in chains for years.

The courses which make up the training are held in beautiful spirit-filled woodlands in Sussex. Buzzards, Owls, Dragonflies, Wrens, Deer, Bees, Foxes to name a handful, are all inhabitants of the land where the four seeds and practitioner training is held and it wouldn’t have been the same without them. During breakfast on the Air/North weekend seven common Buzzards came to circle and play overhead, as if to welcome us as we explored and honoured their element. A wren came and landed on my chest during my vision quest! Jez is a joy to be taught by; insightful, passionate and dedicated to shamanic work, yet balancing this with humour, humility, gentleness, and the strength to support and reassure a group of people undergoing powerful and, at times, challenging initiations. Those who supported the courses were wonderful. We all laughed a lot! The sense of community our group created during the course is something that will stay with me for life.

I now practice as a Shamanic healer and artist, and am eternally grateful to Jez for the immense support, mentorship and encouragement he’s given me, both in my work, and on my personal journey of healing. He is a gifted healer, rooted in a love for both the earth and people, and a dear and trusted friend. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Four Seeds and practitioner training to anyone with a dedicated interest in healing themselves, their communities, and the wider world.´

KATY DUNNE

'Taking part in your workshops is truly stepping into magical world of personal power.'

AGI DEJNEK

'The course was a journey that is hard to put into words. I guess, for me, working with the wisdom and authenticity of the elements helped me to step into my own wisdom and authenticity. The spirit of Fire, Earth, Water and Air taught me to let go of my idea of reality, and ultimately to step into the only thing that is real, the Great Spirit. It was a hard journey at times but the support, love and holding of the group gave me the courage to continue. This course is taught with wisdom, sensitivity, humour and warmth and most importantly it is taught from the heart of the Great Spirit.'

CLAIRE CREIGHTON

'Life changing magic mixed with down to earth fun! Jez takes you on a magical mystery tour of Shamanic rites.'
