Shamans throughout time have been the wisdom keepers, medicine men and women, the wise ones whom represent energies and levels of consciousness that defy human rationalization. Whose human elements and skills are intimately interwoven with the natural elements) earth, wind, fire, water, and the qualities and prowess of wild creatures.
Empathic exchange and respect for the ancestral memory of all life and being the mediator of our spiritual guides, allies, and guardians are the primary spiritual functions of the Shaman.
A main focus of their offerings being human spiritual welfare, using their unique abilities to commune with all level of sentient life on earth and the realms of spirit, for the greater good of all life

There is STUDY of behaviours, habits, patterns in the natural world.
The healing qualities of MOTHER EARTH's gifts is acknowledged and revered. All manner of plants are RESPECTed and used for health and healing.
GRATITUDE is continuously given to the trees, the water sources, the sun, the wind, the soil and all of the great sustenance provided by the natural world supporting our human, and spiritual lives.
The Shaman practices regular MEDITATION, and journeying through drumming, dreams, dance, plant medicine, and other forms of exploration of the unconscious and sacred etheric realms to gather insights and bring understanding of your true place in the world, and place on your current life path.

Your inner Shaman connects you to your intuition, primal instinctual self and can help you decipher the messages in your dream, in the cat that shows up on your step every day, the crow that sits in your apple tree and caws at specific times when you are thinking about a certain issue on your mind or heart.
Are you communing with your inner Shaman?
Are you spending regular time in nature?
Are you intentionally, purposefully, inquiring about your personal and soul purpose in this life? Or the greater life lessons you are here to learn?
As we emerge from the journey through 2019 into a new decade, there is a collective invitation to dive deeper into our own healing and spiritual journey, in a newly curious and compassionate way.
What can support your awareness of your inner Shaman?
If you are already well on your way with your personal healing, and spiritual growth, you will see a lot of manifestation and positive change coming forth for you in the coming weeks and months of 2020!!!
Your inner Shaman awaits your attention. Your soul is ready. The Time is Now.
As I gather Wise Women together for my workshops and retreats, a large part of my intention is to support their re-discovery of their innate connection to mother earth and the elements.
We embody her and her elements. These energies can be harnessed as metaphor, symbology, and utilized intentionally to both process our shadows and to create new within our being, our bodies, and our lives.
My second equally impassioned intention is to create opportunity for women to re-ignite and explore concepts and direct expression of the Divine Feminine within themselves.
The tender and intuitive nature, and the wild and fierce creative expansion the divine feminine births over and over.
When we gather we explore our connection to nature and awaken our senses, in particular our intuitive and fluid somatic knowing, that is also so richly present within the Earth Mother.
As we connect with the earth, and the elements, we are in essence connecting to our own inner wisdom.
Even our accommodation at the magical Mayo Glamping, are subterranean and semi-subterranean Hobbit Holes, Chalets and Cottages! As we sleep we will be held, literally, by the soil of the Celtic Earth Mother.
Our journey in the rural West Coast of Ireland will be akin to a pilgrimage of the heart. Space and time will be created to dive into inquiry, listen intently, and contemplate. We will also actively process fears, doubts and concerns currently blocking your joy and sense of power. You will break through old outworn beliefs and flow into the creation of momentum for change in your life.
I refer to the Celtic Earth Mother in my writing and posts. My reference is both as an homage to the Ancient Druidic and Celtic lands, and therefore, also a connection to the unique vibration of her essence in the landscape of the West Coast. I am also referring to the rich mythology and legends of the Irish Celtic Goddesses, their magical and potent presence in the etheric realms.
We will create and explore ceremony together to connect with some of these Divine Feminine energies and I will also facilitate 7 Feathers unique heart based ceremonies to support our transformative potential to forgive, to open our hearts, to empower and to celebrate.
Time to play, rest, and restore will weave through our time together as well, in true fae fashion!
Another incredible gift of this trip, is that the site we will be based at for our stay is watched over by the incredible ancient feminine energies of a 5000yr + Ring (Fae) Fort. We are bringing healing to this land and we will receive its blessings - a genuine, intentional exchange and mutual support of the divine feminine collectively.
This is an experience that will enrich your life, nourish your soul and open your heart.
I am deeply honoured to be your guide throughout the week and do hope you follow the loud whisper of your heart and join us in May 2020.
With Divine Gratitude and Love,
"In the garden of my body, flowers bloom with love." Devany Wolfe
At this time of the approaching December, and final Full Moon of 2019, it is time not only to reflect on where we've been this past year, in our heart's journey. It is also time for letting go and focusing our energies in the directions we want to flow forwards in 2020.
We are being invited to explore this through the Root Chakra!
Our physical body. The vessel which holds our soul.
And our physical and material world.
This image shows a man with bull horns, representing Taurus and his third eye is illuminated.
Flowers bloom at his glowing feet and he is bathed in a rich hue of coppery red! The colour of the Root Chakra!
The feet, the root, the heart and the third eye chakras communicating to activate mastery over our choices in the physical world and our physical health.
Tend to the garden of our life now. There are things that need weeding. There are parts that need watering and extra nourishment. There is a preparation for winter, and spring, needed now and at a steady and manageable pace.
Our physical body and systems need our attention right NOW. Especially with the holiday season approaching. It can be difficult to maintain a healthy approach to consumption...of all kinds!
Choose this week, to be the time you bring your physical and material needs to the front of the line and make a loving and clear plan for yourself. Pay attention to what your body's needs, and tend to these needs with priority and kind care.
The Root and Heart chakras are energetic partners. When we feel connected, safe and nurtured within our physical body, and our sense of self-trust is strong, we open our hearts more. We feel safer. We trust others more willingly. We seek connection, rather than avoid it out of fear of getting hurt, or not trusting our instincts..
It is important to tend to our spiritual and soul desires. It is equally important to tend to the physical earthly realm and our divine vessel. Let go of any fear of changing your regular routines in order to tend to unfinished business in the 3D plane and get material world more in order for the coming new decade!
Where have left the garden of your life untended?
The December Full Moon is helping us to let go of all that we wish to leave behind in 2019.
What better way to get things moving by focusing on showing up how we want things to be in 2020...NOW!
Share with me!
Where will you start - what will you tend to today, this week, in the garden of your life and for your personal temple?
Are you giving away too much of your energy, time and yourself?
Do you have a tendency to take care of others before yourself?
Are you steeping in Gratitude?
The kind where you are not expecting anything in return for your thankfulness?
The Giveaway is the gift of you to others and to life itself ! No attachment. No expectation of something n return.
Pure gratefulness for being alive, connecting to all that is the true essence of life - the beauty, the awe, the wonder, the magnificence of the workings of the Universe and magic of life.
When you are over giving, you can lose this rich connection to life and gratitude for these gifts.
Poor boundaries and over giving from a place of guilt, obligation, or to be liked or please someone else will build resentment and bitterness. You run the risk of feeling like these people, or life itself, owes you something in return....as your giving was conditional...even if heart based.
Are you giving, reaching out with the energy of pure generosity?
Are you tending to your own needs?
It is time to give yourself the time you need, the rest you need, the attention, acceptance and love you need ...right NOW!
What do you need right now?
Where are you depleted?
What boundaries need to be shifted to care for you better?
Write these down NOW and make a plan. One step to get started!
Once you experience a boost in your self-nurturing, you will notice your natural thankfulness meter will rise and you will begin to notice the beauty of life again - then you are ready to offer a bit more of yourself, time to others...
You can do this in more simple ways. Be generous with your essence, your truest gift of love and presence:
Now for that GRATITUDE!!
Daily gratitude can be a game changer!! It has the power to shift your mindset, your energy, the energy around you and creates potent manifestation of more to be grateful for!! Gratitude minimizes scarcity thinking and shift "lack" to " abundant FLOW".
So, what's your focus going to be on to start with ? Self- care OR Gratitude?
Please share with me what you need most and know that I will send loving support to you remotely to begin the shift in your focus!
Simply state your name in the comments and say "Self-Nurture" Or " Gratitude".
You will be held in love and strength to support your follow through, knowing it is the best gift to you and the greater good!
