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

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

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

One to One sessions, where the focus will be 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. Each session is typically for 2 hours.

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.
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.
The SMSD Wheels of Knowledge give us the opportunity to consciously establish our interconnection with all forms of life – Creation.

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 an increase of health in our body, balance in our emotions, clarity in our mind and the expansion of our Spirit that we know transformation has occurred, the knowledge has been integrated and therefore it 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 awareness is heightened and we experience other states of consciousness and dimensions. This expands our spirit and this expansion enables us to connect with our Higher Self to see alternative perspectives that will accelerate our transformation and deepen our connection to our True Nature and with Creation.
