Healer, teacher, pastoral Counselor, irrepressible storyteller - Elspeth is an honored Elder in the Pagan community. She has been a fixture of Starwood for "longer than weıve been at Brushwood". She is co-founder of The Haven Way: an eco-spiritual path of personal and planetary transformation.

Her workshops reflect her primary concerns: healing as a multi-dimensional spiritual path, the unrecognized value of the older woman, the integral relationship between humans and other beings.

Elspeth is a living example of the messages she brings: a 77-year-old great-grandmother; who, until last year, traveled in a converted school bus named Gwendolyn. Now Harvey, the RV, is Elspethıs home-away-from-home Elspeth holds the Certificate of Shamanic Practitioner from The Church of Earth Healing. All her other training is experiential, and her learning received directly from the Source. Her contributions to personal development include "Resonating With the Crone," now in its sixth year; and "Reclaiming Yourself". New this year, Elspeth and Nybor will be offering "The Pagan Family in the 21st Century- Creating a Spiritually Sustainable Future". When she is not being Crone-on-the-Road, Elspeth is at home in wild and wonderful West Virginia.



Reclaiming Yourself

Most of us, at some time in our life, find ourselves not ourselves. We seem to be living someone else's life; not the one we want, or need, or find fulfilling. These sessions are designed to approach that problem. What you get out of them will depend on how much you are willing to risk. This is an opportunity to examine who you are and how you are using your time and energy. There will be homework. Come prepared to see changes in your life!

  1. I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It Isn't This.
  2. Who's Pulling Your Strings?
  3. Releasing The Ties That Bind.






Take It Personally

We have each chosen to be born into this time; amid the degrading environment, the ending of fossil energy, the rapid socio-political changes, and the growing knowledge and use of magik; among other turmoils. How are you evolving to deal with it all? Do you have any choices? How can you affect the downward spiral? These sessions are designed to raise awareness of these and other issues. Until we are willing to examine them, we cannot begin to solve the problems facing us. We will present information and draw conclusions. We will ask questions whose answers we have yet to learn

  1. The Developing Challenges
  2. Your Part In It All
