transforming life through nature
Everything is connected. Drawing on the wisdom of ancients and the healing power of nature, I help you see and understand yourself in ways that are deeply rooted in human experience and our connection to nature.
The 'Archeus' - the formative power of Nature.
It is the principle of life; the power which contains the essence of life and character of everything.
NEW PRODUCT - GRIEF & THE MEDICINE WHEEL
PLANT ESSENCE/ DIRECTIONAL ELIXIR SET
The Medicine Wheel is a healing concept that has been used by many cultures across millennia. It is a way of placing us in relationship with the natural world around us. It helps us work with the forces of day, night, earth, sky, season, sun, planets, plants – as above, so below. It helps us step outside of time and inside our interior worlds, enabling us to find inspiration, support and peace within by deepening connections to the worlds around us.
As in Nature, each direction has certain attributes: the sun rising in the East, setting in the West, the guiding North star, the earthy solidity of South. The more we work with the wheel, the more nuanced it becomes.
The wheel is not a static entity. It is constantly spinning, turning, changing. Just like you. One day you may feel you need to enter the wheel from the West, facing the rising sun, another day you may need the insight of the south, or the history keepers of the north. By listening to your heart, you will know what you need.
In this set I have focused on the journey of grief through the wheel. There is a short description of the qualities of each direction and how you can work with them to trigger healing within. I have also included details of the plants in each of the directional elixirs.
CONNECT. SUSTAIN. RETURN

For every memory of childhood trauma, for moments of sadness and angst, frustration and blame, I planted a flower. I figured if I did this, it would turn into something beautiful and I wouldn’t …
Here in New Zealand, we see the COVID headlines. We see the numbers, the statistics. We see images of mass graves as we head to a café, hug a friend. We know others are having a tougher time of it ‘out there’, but how hard? This morning I joined a live Zoom workshop that …
Dandelion – stocking your inner furnace This week’s plant essence is dandelion. Its botanic name is Taraxacum officinale. The name dandelion comes from the French ‘Dent de Lion’, which means lion’s teeth. This is because if you look at the shape of a dandelion leaf it looks like the profile of lion fangs. When I …
