Rose Wicksteed Casting

I have been collaborating with actors, directors, producers & creatives for 18 years in the Film and Television industry, primarily as a Casting Director. 

Alongside this, I have been exploring & training in holistic, spiritual & shamanic practices since 2011.

Over the past 10 years I have become increasingly passionate about self-care, healing trauma, dissolving outdated conditioning, integrating the feminine/masculine energies and reclaiming our connection to our intuition and inner power within us, through our relationship to the nature both within and outside of us.

Born at the start of the 80’s & growing up in the female power movement of the 90's, I was conditioned into a certain ideology of how to achieve success, equality and power.

With the feeling that there was more to living this human experience, I began a deep self-love journey 10 years ago. This took me to many wild and wonderful places, meeting eclectic characters. Travelling into the mind and around the world to India, South Africa, Canada, US, Israel, Costa Rica, UK & Europe.  Learning with shamans, artists, healers, medicine people, yogis, astrologers, energy workers & somatic practitioners.

Alongside this exploration, I was Casting for Film and TV, internationally out of London. Co-creating with actors & creatives, weaving energies at the conception of projects.

In 2018 my body started shouting very loudly to me. To Stop. To Listen.

I had been in and out of physical pain for 10 years.  Living very much in the land of busyness, achieving and seeking outside of myself for love, power, a sense of belonging and recognition.

I gave up my office in London and let go of my team.  After taking a few months to heal in a more concentrated way, I travelled to South Africa to spend time in the bush. Communing deeply with the land, the people & the animals.  I needed to slow down, breathe, connect with the rhythms of nature and live in a different way. 

On my return to the UK, I began to consciously focus on deepening and integrating my relationship with my body, mind & soul.  Alongside my creative business as a casting director, I started studying shamanic practices in more depth, journeying deeply with ceremonial cacao & womb work. I wanted to integrate the healing modalities which had helped me, within my work in the industry. I had a vision for a more healthy working environment and started taking my team to sound baths at our studios in Hackney, London. I had an idea of creating a holistic and casting space and took a lease on a new set of studios overlooking a park. Creating a supportive place for artists & creatives to express emotions and connect with their truth, within the context of a project or outside of one.

Cut to March 2020.

During this pause, I started leading Nature Medicine Journey's, holding space for others to connect deeper with their own truth and intuition. I studied breathwork, was ordained as a Shamanic Minister and spent 6 weeks on a wild Greek island, in a shamanic training.


And as the busy-ness calls us again

I feel the desire to do things differently

Explore what is being called for at this time of great change

I feel the quiet potency of connecting deeply with the rhythms of nature

Tuning into this creative force and listening

Connecting with my passion to empower others to tune out the noise - 

Connect to their own truth and power within.
