 Membership Program

Writing and teaching are the warp and weft of my life; the texture of my work comes from the richly woven entanglements of both of these threads. But the writing life predominates, and so opportunities to work with me in live/interactive online settings, or in person, are necessarily limited. Below, you’ll find a variety of offerings, ranging from on-demand, self-study courses to more interactive, community-based experiences, as well as live events and workshop.

All of my work is grounded in a firm commitment to ongoing academic and professional training in the fields of psychology (with a focus on narrative, depth and transpersonal psychology), mythology and folklore – and especially in my longstanding exploration of the native traditions of the British Isles and Europe. In order to teach, you need to have learned. And you need to keep on learning. As a teacher and guide, that’s my commitment to you. Please check out my academic and professional qualifications here.

Why now?

If I’m passionate about any one thing, I’m passionate about transformation. It’s only by transforming ourselves that we can hope to transform the world. If we want to change the dominant, life-denying cultural mythology which is failing us and failing the planet, we need to begin by transforming the myths that each one of us chooses to live by. We need to discover our personal calling, to uncover the unique gift that we each bring to the world at this time – and to understand our own individual mythopoetic journey through this life. That’s the foundation for all of my work.

Change always begins with individuals, and it always begins with imagination. It begins with a different story which succeeds in capturing our imagination more effectively than the old, now-crumbling story with which we’ve been brought up. A different story which speaks to our longing for deeper connection, for deeper meaning. My work is designed to help you find those stories.



Sunday June 11, 18 and 25, 2023
16.00 to 18.00 UK time

We are storytelling animals, hard-wired for story. We begin to make sense of the world through the stories we find in childhood – or the stories which find us. They are the stars we navigate by, and their lessons are deep and rich. They help us to reimagine ourselves, because at the heart of them is transformation: they help us to believe in the possibility of change. We come to see that there are other ways of imagining the world and our place in it – and of living more intensely, and more richly, in a world that is often filled with challenge, and sorrow. Join me to explore the ways in which, even as adults, we can find ourselves in fairy tales.


A collection of 13 guided imagination audio journeys

‘Enchanted Journeys’ is a collection of thirteen audio files, each of which offers a guided imagination journey around 25 – 30 minutes long, narrated by Dr Sharon Blackie and priced at £18 for the collection.

All of these meditations are designed to help you to work with your deep imagination, engage with the imaginal world and develop resources for activating your mythic imagination.


A woman’s journey from menopause through elderhood

Hagitude: a comfort with the unique power we embody; a strong sense of who we are and what we have to offer the world; a strong belief in our necessary place in the ever-shifting web of life.

Join me in bringing together a vibrant and diverse tribe of women to explore the ways in which we can flourish during what is so often portrayed as a time of decline. How can we prepare ourselves for yet another searing transformation, and move into the second half of life with a new sense of vitality, creativity and vision?

This membership program offers the opportunity to learn together (with and from each other), to create together, and ultimately, to become together.


Interactive online gatherings to reclaim the mythic feminine

Our ancestors descended into caves to listen to the whisperings of the Otherworld. From time to time, you’ll find me in residence in my own virtual Bone Cave, tending a fire pit around which you are all invited to gather. The Bone Cave is a place for entering into the mystery – for imagining and reimagining the world, and our own unique mythopoetic journey through it. We gather together to delve deeply into the myths and stories which can sing new life back into the ashes of our depleted bones. To remember who we are, and who we someday might become.

Visit the Bone Cave page to find out what’s coming up, and purchase past recordings.

Our old Western traditions tell us that it’s through exercising the embodied and emplaced imagination – through working with myth, archetypes, dreams, fairy tales, and through exploring creative and expressive practices – that we can come to understand our unique gift and purpose, and weave ourselves back into the web of life on this beautiful, animate Earth.

This Mythic Life, then, is a unique on-demand, self-study course which guides you to revive these old enchantments, and unlock the magic of the everyday.




Myth and medicine intertwined: Sisters of Rock and Root is a year-long, on-demand self-study experience for women who want to delve deeply into the wild Western European myths and fairy tales which have women at their centre. We’ll explore a range of female archetypes, and harness their wisdom to help us connect in a grounded, rooted way with the cycles and seasons of the year. Join this course to explore the themes associated with these stories as they arise in the cycles and seasons of your own life.




Are you interested in studying accurate and up-to-date information about the native myths and traditions of the ‘insular Celts’: Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Cornwall? And are you interested in exploring what an authentic contemporary spirituality might look like in the context of this ancient knowledge, so reclaiming your ancestral roots? If you are, then this unique, self-study distance-learning course is for you.
