Nick has worked and met with many medicine people, shamans and teachers of shamanism over the past 25 years. His own practice is a mix of Mongolian, Tibetan, Siberian and Native American traditions.  Before being involved in shamanism, he trained as a social worker, working in mental health settings, and completed extensive pychotherapy training in TA, gestalt, NLP and Ericksonian trance work.  Nick is the editor, designer, and publisher of Sacred Hoop Magazine.  He works one-to-one with people teaching shamanism and sometimes runs small informal workshops from his studio home in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.  Contact Nick through his website: www.nicholaswood.net
