Dr. Owen Roberts, PhD.

Originally of Welsh origin, Owen studied Core Shamanism in Australia and worked in the Aboriginal community. While in Australia he also studied Tarot, Hermeticism, Kabbalah and Jungian Psychoanalysis. He studied psychic healing at the London College of Psychic Studies.  Having studied Tarot for over 35 years, Owen developed and teaches our highly successful Diploma in Professional Tarot Reading.  Owen is a graduate and former employee of the USA’s Four Winds Shamanic Institute with certificates in Healing the Light Body, Soul Retrieval and Advanced Shamanism. Owen also has a PhD in Western Philosophy and a BPhil from the Pontifical University.  Owen’s work has been to fuse traditional shamanism with the western traditions of Kabbalah, classical mythology and psychoanalysis.

Owen studied traditional Despacho ceremony under the Peruvian P’aqo (or shaman) Don Sebastian Succlle Apaza for 8 years and has received from him the Mosoq Karpay initiation which qualifies him as a P’aqo in the Don Sebastian’s tradition.  Owen continues to study under P’aqos from that region.

“I am honored to receive the profound wisdom embedded in the Quechuan understanding of life.  It is a privilege to bring this wisdom to our students.  The P’aqo Nan, path of the P’aqo, is a profound approach to healing of self, community, and our relationship with nature. My aim is to make this wisdom accessible to all while staying as true to it as possible.”

Majella Fagan, BA (Drama), BSc (Psychology)

Majella is the founder of Green Tara College and Holistic Therapy Centre. Majella is a long-established and well-known teacher within the Holistic field. She has worked with energy healing for over 17 years and is trained in various branches of Shamanism (Core training for 3 years), Celtic and Inca traditions (6 years), Four Winds Certified, South American and Native American traditions. Majella has been teaching and facilitating Shamanism and ceremonies for over 11 years and is dedicated to this work.

Personal witness – Majella Fagan:

“I had studied many therapies and been in personal healing for many years.  Having taken the core shamanic training twice and working with it for many years I was thirsting for something more in depth and felt I needed to know more. I didn’t feel the working techniques were adequate enough for the growing needs of the work. When I took the six years of shamanic training with initiations from the Q’ero and  the training in further shamanic techniques with Alberto Villoldo and The Four Winds, I found what I had been looking for.  This is the most phenomenal work I have ever done and it brought to me deep, deep healing where at a crucial time in my life I finally cleared the heaviness of past issues and moved forward into a life of peace and higher destiny, here I learned to ‘dream my world into being.’  I can only say from my heart that I urge you if it feels  right or you feel drawn to it to take this training.  Alongside teaching Holistic Therapies, my main work is with Reiki and shamanism. I started with traditional Reiki and have found that the combination of  the two traditions is a wealth of amazement and have found that the shamanic work brought me into deeper techniques and much more grounding.  There is a wealth of joy, freedom and humility in walking this path which helps give us  grace to aim to be a better person.  In times of crisis it is my spiritual training and practice that has kept me together. Please feel free to give me a call  or if you’d like to meet up and chat about it I’d be delighted.”
