Celtic Earth Spirit - Animists & keepers of The Old Ways.

 Animism – the sacred relationship between all that is; the land, animals, plants,the elements of nature and the realms. The Old Ways are the knowledge, philosophy, customs and practices of the mainland of the British Isles (Brythonic).

We work with the magic of the Earth Herself, the essence which binds all things together; which will last far longer than the time of mankind.

The Tribe

Chris Hurst

Founder of Celtic Earth Spirit – an animist & Earth Warrior for virtually all of her life.

The knowledge of ‘The Old Ways’ was taught by her grandparents who came from a long line of rural Animists and practiced the traditional arts of ‘village wise woman’ and ‘cunning man’. They passed their knowledge on with the understanding that it was passed on to others.

Chris has spent a lifetime furthering this knowledge and her skills in the qualifications that she has undertaken. Although her greatest teacher has always been Mother Earth and nature itself.

A practicing Animist, Herbalist and Mentor, She has been teaching Animism, Herbalism & Permaculture for over 15 years. As a mentor to many people for more than 20 years, Chris helps you to find your confidence, direction & purpose in life.

Simon Baker

Simon is also an animist & Earth Warrior who has been rooted in the land from a very early age. He now works with gardens, landscapes and woodlands.

Our ‘right-hand man’ on EarthCamps due to his impressive range of bushcraft skills and developing shamanic abilities, his ‘Earth-connection’ is invaluable.
