I'm a woman, just like you.
Through my own challenges with womanhood, being a mother, a wife, navigating a divorce and my own health issues, I’ve found that the most honest healers are movement, the breath and interaction with the elements. I feel most supported by rocks and the roots of a tree; I feel most alive when the wind is whipping my hair and I’m dancing barefoot on the grass.
I believe in love, even though my heart has been broken a thousand times.
My version of love means kindness, honesty and truth. Love is showing up, standing for something and using your voice eloquently and powerfully to promote justice and peace. Love is hugging, listening and looking someone in the eyes as they pour their heart out to you. Love is my daughter, the most amazing person I know: dedicated, compassionate, kind and hilarious. When I watch how she is living her life, she's 25, I’m filled with hope for the future of this planet.
I love swimming in the ocean and sitting next to a fire, under the stars drinking tea. I love wearing black, being on a train or travelling somewhere new. I love chocolate. I love that all of my material possessions fit into four boxes. I love the reflections of a disco ball, and I love Prince with every wild bone in this body.
Over the past two years, during the Spring and Autumn equinox, under the name 'Sisters Of The Wild' I have held space for women in nature. We come together to stir the pot, feel the warmth of the fire, we dance, we cry, we laugh and we grow. As I’ve sat with these large groups of women, listening, learning and nurturing, I found myself connecting deeply to their individual stories.
During the past 8 years I have lived & worked in a yoga retreat centre, I have trained to teach Kundalini Yoga and Qoya, I’m a self taught vegan chef and an initiated Plant Spirit Healer and I've held one day retreats from four to forty women. But more than all of this, my work has given me the ability to hear the truth of a woman’s story in the spaces in-between the words she uses. My work is to create a safe and nurturing container for you to remember who you are in a world that so often urges us to forget. I'm here to encourage you to disconnect from technology and lean into the wisdom of the trees, to unearth the deeper connections that slowing down can open us up to and to give yourself space to breathe.
MENTORING & NATURE THERAPY
In the ocean of noise that can often feel like it's drowning us, it can be hard to hear our own voice. I'm a listener and I love to help women learn how to deeply listen to themselves in order to reconnect to their bodies, and the world around them.
Through my own experiences I have found that when we connect with nature our bodies can feel more at home, we can drop down from our buzzing thoughts and stories to cultivate a feeling of safety. Nature is what we can lean into when things become uneasy - and as women living in this time and culture we are being called to remember the simple ways of living.
It takes time and gentleness.
It is not about an overnight revelation, it is about learning to dig deep, so that our foundations are strong. It can be messy and sticky, just like Autumn, but it will be the season where you hold the spade that turns new soil. I will help you find your steadiness, grow your resilience and encourage you to engage in nature therapy, connecting with rhythm of the seasons, immersing yourself in the sights, sounds and smells, awakening your senses.
Come to me with your noise, and let us work out together where your still space lies. Outside the roaring of external influences, I will hold a safe space for you to begin to hear your own truth.
