A Bit About Me
Red is the first point of contact and known as the smile of SunGate.
He keeps things running smoothly
Working alongside Skie and doing a lot of the background work, Red is the office manager for SunGate and ensures your emails are answered, courses are booked, everything is spelt correctly and keeps things in order
More importantly he keeps Skie on track and holds beautiful ceremonies.
I was initially introduced to spirituality after discovering Wicca and Celtic Paganism about 20 years ago and although I did not fully immerse myself in it, I found that it helped me to overcome a lot of pain and difficulties in my life, including a couple of stressful relationship splits. I soon left that behind and began finding more wisdom and peace in a universal god energy.
It wasn’t until I met Skie 16 years ago that I fully came to understand the word spirituality and became immersed into a life of love, ancient wisdom, compassion, family and understanding.
I often say that I did not choose the path of shamanic wisdom; I married it!
I can honestly say that marrying Skie was the best thing I’ve ever done. She has helped me to become a better person and I am sure she can do the same for you.
I have also discovered a new interest with wild survival bushcraft and have found a great passion for making bows, baskets and leather work. I love making shamanic drums and holding Sound healing circles.
The SunGate retreats we held in Peru every year immersed me deeply in plant wisdom and I have opened myself to a new journey with this work
I am enjoying being a Dad and a Grandad and love helping people through the work we do.
