Our group gateway programs run from October to September each year and consist of 4 online teaching days and 2 on-site weekend gatherings in Nature, where we have the opportunity to do longer ceremonies, training and practices.

In addition, participation in at least one of the two larger ceremonial gatherings we hold at the Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox is recommended.

We also offer individual year programs that have the same content and a similar structure to the group programs. The dates will be decided between the student and teacher.

One to One sessions, where the focus is on a specific issue or issues that you need or desire to work with, are also possible. The date and number of sessions are decided at the end of each session.

Wheels of Knowledge

Wheels or circles have been used to convey understanding and alignment with the energy patterns of Life and Creation by wisdom and mystery schools for millennia.
Linear thinking is a limited, artificial construct or illusion, as the natural world, life, all Creation move and evolve in circles or cycles.
Our right brain naturally works in a circular fashion, and this is the part we cultivate when playing/working with the wheels and keys. This may be a new experience, but with a little practice it allows us to tap into our original creativity and bypasses the need for rote learning.
The SMSD Wheels of Knowledge give us the opportunity to consciously establish our interconnection with all forms of life. There is no beginning or end point when one views life from within a circle, there are simply changing points of reference that strengthen our capacity for an open, flexible, clear mind.

Warrior Tasks

The Wheels of Knowledge give us intellectual or theoretical concepts, connections and possibilities. However, for real change to occur it is necessary for us to make the shift from believing something, to knowing something. True knowledge is felt.
By applying the wheels and practices in our lives we test them, to see if they truly work as keys that unlock the doors to that which we are seeking to experience in our life.
It is when we feel the increase of health in our body, balance in our emotions, clarity in our mind and the expansion of our Spirit that we know the transformation is integrated and the knowledge is our own.


Engaging in ceremony is a personal act of empowerment that brings an awakening and a gain in energy that nourishes our True Nature Spirit. During a ceremony our spirit expands and we experience other states of consciousness, our awareness is heightened, we are able to see from alternative perspectives and become aware of different dimensions, this accelerates our transformation and deepens our connection to ourselves and with Creation.
