The dreamy meditative tone and shape of the space allowed me to go deeper than expected. And how I was woven in and held in my absence and my presence… Thank you.


I was reminded I am profoundly welly supported in different ways and relationships, and that i needed reminding of this and they way OneSpirit can bring those many aspects of life into focus.


Having a light shone on just how mucy of a supported web I have arouund me and how that is, in part, because I have called it in… and it has been called in to enable me to do my ministry.

Your Facilitators

Annie Heppenstall

Annie is a core tutor on OneSpirit’s Ministry Training. A prolific writer, Annie has published ten books and many articles, reflections and liturgies, among which The Book of Uncommon Prayer (2015) captures the range of her inspirations most fully. Its subtitle reads: ‘Liturgies and Prayers exploring inclusive language and biblical imagery of the Feminine Divine and the natural world’. Her degree and MA from Cambridge University, in Theology and Religious Studies, focused on “the beautiful, mystical core” in the sacred wisdom of different faith cultures. Her Postgraduate Certificate in Chaplaincy specialises in pastoral care in the community, self-reflective practice and diversity of spiritual experience. Annie’s lifelong love of nature led her to study and be initiated as a druid with the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, for whom she continues to mentor trainee druids. Her passion for experiential spirituality and for the heart-felt soul-connection of humanity has led her over the last three decades, into deep and extended explorations of the faith paths of the world alongside practitioner-friends, including sharing in the peace of a Buddhist Sangha, the warmth of welcome into neighbourhood Islamic communities, and into an elected leadership role in a Franciscan Christian contemplative Order. 

Dawn Russell

Dawn is a core tutor on OneSpirit’s Ministry Training. Dawn’s greatest passion is to be part of the human experience that unfolds when we come together in a heart space to achieve something for the greater good of all. She started her working life in therapeutic communities and worked with many aspects of psychotherapeutic practices such as art therapy, psychodrama and group dynamics. After many years of exploring earth-based spirituality and healing practices (often under the umbrella name of shamanism) she became co-director of Eagle’s Wing College of Contemporary Shamanism, and co-founder of both Celebrating Woman, and Medicine Woman, Medicine Ways. Over the last 20 years Dawn has been offering one-year courses and short courses in healing, earth connection and practitioner training. She has also developed a one-to-one practice offering many lenses to help people know, love, heal and accept themselves, and in turn to know themselves as part of the Divine, Great Mystery of life. Dawn was ordained with OneSpirit in 2018.
