Nicholas Breeze Wood is the editor of Sacred Hoop Magazine - a leading international magazine about shamanism, which has been published since 1993. He is also a musician, experienced craftworker, and artist.

He has been a shamanic practitioner for over 30 years, combining it with the more shamanic end of Tibetan Buddhism and 'medicine' teachings from Native North American peoples. He has worked with many gifted medicine people and shamans over the years, but is now deeply apprenticed to his own spirit helpers, whose teachings never fail to awe and surprise him.

He is a musician with a great interest and love of the early medieval music of the trobadors, and has a collection of nearly 60 medieval and world music plucked stringed instruments, and about the same number of Central Asian rugs - both of which breed well in the damp Pembrokeshire air where he lives.

As a painter hs is drawn to the sacred art of Tibet, as well as Persian, Indian and medieval European art.

As a craftsman, he makes traditional shamanic ritual objects - and he has a special interest in the sacred and ritual objects found in Central Asian and Siberian shamanism, Tibetan Buddhism and the Native American medicine path. He runs 3Worlds - an on-line gallery, showcasing these beautiful ritual antiques.

He is the author of four books, ‘Sacred Drums of Siberia', ‘Voices From The Earth', ‘The Book of the Shaman’ and 'The Resplendent Other', a retrospective of his paintings and digital art.

He has received a lifetime honoury membership of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies from Michael Harner, and was recently nominated by members of the British public as one of the 144 leading 'evolutionaries' in Britan today.
