Make yourself a cup of tea, or get a glass of water and let me introduce myself, I am in my 50’s and I am a healer, a teacher, a wayfinder, a creator and holder of spaces – both in the body, for individuals and for groups and organisations.
My healing journey started in my early twenties when I was exploring lands on the other side of the world and I become aware of energy outside of our bodies, of Elemental Beings who live within the landscape all around us, as well as the landscape of our bodies. This has directed me since, questing to deepen my relationship as a human being rooted in the landscape of where I call home. Since that time I have worked every day with altars, whether they be simple and momentary or deeper for more potent purposes.
Home is in Mid-Wales, a land that adopted me 23 years ago, when we lived amongst the Mountains of the North, travelled south to the Dyfi estuary, and are now in the the Valleys of Mid-Wales on a little smallholding where I continually deepen my relationship with the elemental beings of this little patch of land, and its surrounds, learning how to create harmony and growth with the land here as I discover how to grow veg!
My learnings and trainings have been centred deeply around herbalism and stones; yoga and my body; women’s health – especially in relationship to fertility cycles and latterly the wisdom the peri-menopausal and menopausal cycles bring. Along the way I have woven in beloved herbal forays and foraging, a rich 7 year apprenticeship with a Medicine Woman who loves earth deeply and resides in the US. She taught me how to use my light body to reach out and work with other people irregardless of where they are in the world. She held me as I quested my relationship the other realms and with the ancestors who prayed for us, through a series of ceremonies. She deepened my understanding of minerals, rocks and crystals and since then I have worked consistently with Crystal Skulls and their relationship with the web of life, of which we, as humans, are part.
For the past 23 years I have worked within the circle of a Sacred Fire tradition, working alongside my husband who is initiated to hold these circles, and this includes all night long prayer and song ceremonies conducted in a formal ritual setting. I am consistently in awe of the simplicity of how sitting in front of a ritual fire brings a deep connection to those ancient parts of ourselves.
Eliot Cowan, deepened my relationship with the plant world through his Plant Spirit Medicine training, and this ignited a deep respect and love for the Ancient Chinese medicine that is the Five Elements and has been my constant daily companion for the past 15 years as I interact and learn with them every day
I love how all these bits of me make up my whole… and that whole is continually seeking the other bits of me that are still hidden and are waiting to be unearthed, reunited or refined within myself.
I love writing poetry and prose, reading, singing badly, sewing and creating, honouring the cycles and seasons of the land and myself and walking barefoot with my dog whilst foraging for whatever is in season.
Much of my focus is how us as humans can devolve ourselves to become more rooted into earth, I think of myself as a fruiting body… and I am deeply informed by the wisdom of First Nations and Indigenous elders, and our inner compasses which always try to guide us back to the Garden of our Hearts.
In this way I empower and help guide other humans in a way that can bring them into a deeper alignment with their hearts and soul, bring them back from the edge of overwhelm, and help to clear held trauma within the body. All of this creates space and safety in themselves, so they can listen to their own inner compass, get to know and feel the garden of their heart, their felt sense and inner knowing.
