Pathway teaching with Paul O’Halloran on the 1st Monday of the month at 11am Pacific Time 

About Pathway teaching

Pathway teaching is made up of Paul O’Halloran and his wife Melanie O’Halloran-Gomes.

Paul O’Halloran trained in shamanism with various teachers over the years including Zanemvula (Peter Von Maltitz) in South Africa who bestowed the name Igqirha on him. Igqirha means shamanic “healer” in Xhosa and this name comes originally from the San people. It is a person full of life energy.

Following the Sacred Sundance ceremony with the Cree First Nation people in 2017 Paul was blessed with the name “Grey Elk” at the Sacred Tree of Life. Rosie White Elk Medicine Woman (now Trinity Vision Seeker) describes that moment here.

Paul has also been called “shaman” for simplicity but strictly speaking the word “shaman” comes from Siberia and is not the shamanic lineage of Paul even though it is used in everyday speech.

At Pathway teaching Paul and Melanie run courses such as shamanic training, Rahanni Celestial Healing, and online courses. We also hold ceremonies and do one to one sessions online or in person. Please see the website for more details. Thank you.

Our aim at Pathway teaching is to empower people to heal themselves so that they can become free from what no longer serves their higher purpose.

May you be blessed to know and embody your true Spirit to the fullest potential so you breathe and be the kindness and love that you truly are.

Paul and Melanie,

Grey Elk & White Feathers Woman,

Pathway teaching

Shamanic training in Ireland

We run introductory, practitioners and advanced shamanic courses as well as online training (under development).

Introductory events on shamanism through the “Awaken the Shaman within” evenings are available with us at different times of year.  The introductory events cover the basics of shamanism and help you to decide whether you are called to heal yourself through shamanic practice and learn the medicine of the ancient ways which can be incorporated into any modern work in your everyday life. There is also the online introductory course which is currently being developed if you live outside Ireland.

This is followed by the 8 weekend shamanic practitioners course which is a journey of self healing and learning how to heal others. Following this, there is the Advanced Shamanic practitioners course which primarily focuses on healing people at a deeper level and learning how to heal houses, property and land.

The final process is the bead ceremonies, sacred initiations with the elements of air, water, earth, and fire. These are done over a period of weekends and this is by invitation or though the dream time.

Each year we run IntroductoryPractitioner and Advanced Shamanic courses. We also run online shamanic training, online seminars and retreats. Rahanni Celestial Healing and womb blessings® and healings are also available, please see the courses and workshops page for more details.

11 Things About Paul ….



  1. What was your first moment of ‘beyond 3d normal awakening’?

When I was a child I was afraid to lie on my tummy because I kept falling through this massive hole and I did not know what it was at the time. Now, all these years later, I feel it was me remembering coming to Earth as a Spirit. Also I use to see Spirits looking in the window at night at me as well as and I had a few encounters with the fairies in Connemara (my home land) when I was a child. I also had a few near death experiences in later life which opened me up to spirituality.


  1. Who is your favourite teacher, book and movie?

Kenneth Meadows was a big influence on me through his books.

Avatar is my favourite movie.

I have had many beautiful teachers over the years although Great Spirit probably has been my main teacher.


  1. What’s the strangest experience you’ve ever had?

When I was a small boy growing up in the West of Ireland on my way back home one evening I heard the Banshee cry. It is a wailing sound like a woman crying very deeply. They say it is the fairy people mourning the death of a person. I was very young although since then I have had many other experiences.


  1. What’s one interesting thing we do not know about you yet?

I am a big rugby fan and played rugby since I was a kid – it grounds me!


  1. What do you feel your true life purpose to be?

Through the shamanic work I was called to by Spirit is to empower people to empower themselves and by doing so helping to heal the Earth.


  1. What’s your favourite animal?

Dogs and donkeys.


  1. What’s your favourite consciousness or energy ‘exercise’ that helps you stay connected, grounded and ‘tuned in’ in a good way?

Meditation and being in humility.


  1. What’s your favourite music / song / musical artist?

I love country – Guy Clarke, Meat Loaf as well as spiritual Icaros from South America.


  1. What’s your favourite food?

Mellie’s (my wife’s) brown bread.


  1. What excites your creative juices?

I love when I see people stepping into their power, working from their heart and moving forward. I love travel to meet with other medicine people to learn and connect.

  1. What’s the one thing you’d like to “shamelessly self promote” here today?

Our goal with Pathway teaching is to reach as many people as possible as we will be launching an online foundation in shamanism in the near future – people can join up through the website email sign up list. The course is to bring simple techniques to people to help them open the gateways to their own healing, power and purpose.
