Dr. Martin Shaw
Dr Martin Shaw has introduced thousands of people to mythology and has been a wilderness rites of passage guide for more than 20 years. Much of his teaching arises from a four year period living in a tent on a succession of English hills.
Shaw has devised and led the Oral Tradition course at Stanford University in the US and is author of the Mythteller Trilogy: A Branch From The Lightning Tree, Snowy Tower and Scatterlings. He leads a small hedge-school, the Westcountry School of Myth, in the Celtic fringe of Britain, tucked into the south-easterly curve of Dartmoor National Park.
He also started a small press, Cista Mystica, where his books including Wolf Milk and The Night Wages can be found.
