A Bit About Me
I am deeply passionate about remembering, reclaiming and empowering the wild and sacred feminine within all of us, remembering our place as a part of nature, creating community and supporting sisterhood.
I have spent many years working in the outdoors as a nature guide where I have been blessed to explore some of the most beautiful, remote and wild places in nature.
In my early twenties I discovered women's circles, which led me on a journey of rediscovering and reclaiming my feminine power. I unlocked the secrets of my womb, my body and my blood. I looked at my rites of passage and my wounds, I sat with them, I dedicated myself to my healing. And from this place a desire was born for sharing these new found gifts with more women so that they too can remember there feminine power.
Now I am in a place of weaving all of my passions together to create my current offerings. I offer from a place of deep love. If you attend any of my offerings you will be received with an open heart and warm presence.
So come, sit by the fire with me, let us have a cup of tea, share stories and learn from one another.
