What I Do
& Where I Live
I live in the midst of beautiful, wild nature in a consciously cultivated abundant landscape. I teach, inspire and lead people to connect ever deeper with a direct experience of the Sacred within. In this natural beauty, I help people heal, I help people return to wholeness, and I help people embody deep connections with their own true Nature.
So how did I come to live in one of the most famous Ecovillages in the world?... and what expertise do I have that guides people to powerfully transform inside and out??
... want to know the whole story? then read on...
My earliest memory as a Child
was a deep knowing that I was here for some BIG purpose... I've always had this sense... but it always felt just out of reach. My childhood was really rocky. My parents did the best they could...
My Mama taught me
the true meaning of Mother Love... and inadvertently helped me grasp the love Mother Nature has for humanity. How our Earth Mother is the solid ground which never falters and always provides to the best of her ability... the nature of provision may change, may ebb and flow, but the unconditional provision of "Mother" is constant - whether from my own mum or Mother Nature...
I worked in various Jobs
on leaving school, and then woke up to my innate creativity at 25 when I studied a degree in Ceramics and Sculpture.
The creative process came alive within me and with it, a deepening of Self awareness and Self knowledge.
I started to heal and grow within... simply from expressing my feelings and my inner voice through creative means.
I worked in Nature
and with children - I was a Forest School leader and trainer. I realised that children respond very quickly to empathic, creative adults... and actually, it was the adults that needed help to connect with natural expression, children were so often naturally flowing in their creativity. So, I trained in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy, in Cellular Healing, NLP, Emotional Intelligence and every healing modality I could get my hands on... I created my own training company and delivered Emotional Intelligence all over the UK. I worked with 20 different nations in a European Parenting project in 11 European cities and became a leader in my field.
I sensed I was on track with my real purpose... but then Life took me in an unexpected direction....
My beautiful Life Partner
Tao Paul Wimbush created the world-famous Lammas Ecovillage and I followed him with total devotion to begin living out in the Wild West of Pembrokeshire to carve out a brand new natural life. I left everything I knew behind and opened myself to living off grid, growing food, dealing with our own waste and building our own house with the resources found in our immediate locality.
In the early days it was tough...
REALLY tough.. No internet for two years, no running water, I washed in a metal bucket heated over a fire and life went right back to primitive primal...
My beautiful children seemed happy, wild and free, but I was reeling. Our planning permission required that we had to develop a landbased business and I really struggled to find my niche...
I love flowers
So I started a small, tentative cut flower business. This was when I discovered that bees often sleep in flowers at night....just beautiful... realistically it wasn't feasible to make a living with cut flowers alone, so I evolved and created my Organic Skincare Business - Flower Power Organics... I made Tinctures, Healing Salves and studied the healing properties of plants. I also made skin creams and tonics. I ran this seriously for several years and did enjoy it, but I still felt way off track with my soul’s purpose...Eventually I reached a crux point where I just couldn't carry on doing things that didn't feel truly aligned with my heart. I found myself going off to India for some deep soul-searching. Whilst there, I gave my life to God, to Great Mystery, to Life.
I went to one of the holiest paces on Earth,
home to numerous Indian sages and saints and I experienced an ego death like no other... All other ego deaths in my life had been blissful, but this was just dead silence... no movement anywhere. I was told on that holy mountain, in no uncertain terms... get back to Lammas and start living from your heart, you are exactly where you are meant to be!
My life turned upside down and inside out
That return year was the most INTENSE and terrifying process I've ever experienced. I had no clue who I was, and had no ability to navigate from my mind. All my usual plans and schemes just disintegrated and so much of the life I had built began to crumble and fall away. Out of the ashes, I listened deeply to what my heart and soul was being called to. I was drawn to making sound and singing mantras. It was the only thing that kept me sane and safe. I very gently began to train in Sound Healing and I discovered the tremendous power of Sacred Sound for healing and aligning. I was guided by life to re-ignited my connection with medicinal plants, herbs and trees and I realised my reason for being on this Earth is to help people heal. Indeed, I've always been a healer. I asked myself possibly the most important question of my entire life..." what am I here to create, to ignite, to bring? This enquiry gave rise to the realisation I needed to ground our Retreat Centre and The Lammas Earth Centre was born as a beacon for transformation and healing. I continued to connect deeper with Nature and my healing mission resulted in grounding two practitioner trainings; Sound Healer Practitioner Training and Natural Shamanism Practitioner Training which are taught through The School of Natural Shamanism based at the Lammas Earth Centre. I know how vital it is to have truly aligned healers in the world at this time on Earth for the shifts needed are HUGE. I help people make Sacred Shamanic Drums and support the realisation of the power of this immense instrument for healing. I'm deeply honoured to be an associate tutor with the Spiritual Companions Trust and I feel deeply humbled that I get given this SACRED life to live. May I do it justice.
This natural INNER power of love, peace and creativity is available to each and every one of us.
My job is to help you get access to it
Your freedom, is my freedom is the freedom of all!
