About Us

Celtic Earth Spirit – Animists, Shamanists & Keepers of The Knowledge of the Cunning Folk.

Animism & Shamanism – the sacred relationship between all that is; the land, animals, plants,the elements of nature and the Otherworld.

The Cunning Folk (Wise-Women & Cunning Men) are the people with the ability to achieve things in a clever way. They are shrewd & wily, with an instinctive skill and intuitive knowledge and a deep relationship to the land. They are well-versed in the folk-arts; the expressive & practical culture associated with the fields of folklore and cultural heritage which encompass folk magic, divination and folk remedies amongst many other things.

Their knowledge & beliefs can be evidenced through the folklore, mythologies, customs & practices of the archipelago of the British Isles (Briton). Descendents of the old cunning folk still exist who have inherited knowledge handed down through generations. In recent times the discipline of Archaeology has added some valuable insights into our ancient ancestors.

Celtic Earth Spirits Aim is to keep this knowledge alive & record it for posterity.

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

About Chris Hurst

Animist, Writer, Earth Mother, Herbalist & Founder of Celtic Earth Spirit

I am a practitioner of the Old Ways of the British Archipelago, which are animistic. I was taught by my Grandmother (a village wise-woman), from as soon as I was old enough to start learning. She also taught me that I had to pass the knowledge on.
I have been doing this through my website, YouTube channel and writing for many years now. I am also qualified as a teacher of adults.

About Simon Baker

Woodsman & Wildlife Landscaper

Simon has been an Animist & Earth Warrior rooted in the land from a very early age. He now works with gardens, landscapes and woodlands. Acting as ‘right-hand man’ on EarthCamps due to his range of bushcraft skills and developing shamanic abilities, his ‘Earth-connection’ was invaluable.
