The path of wild beauty

The Path of Wild Beauty is for those who are at a point of transition and are moving from one phase of life to another. It's for creatives and soulful entrepreneurs who have experienced burn out, and who desire to reconnect with their inner strength and vitality in a deeply sustainable way. It is for anyone in the midst of major life change, and who needs to find their footing before re-crafting their life. It is for those who simply know it is time to pause, to root deeply into their wise inner self, and and to find new ways to bring their unique medicine into the world.

The Path of Wild Beauty is a rite of passage itself. It will give you the opportunity to learn to dance with your shadow, and to honour and heal all parts of yourself. It is for anyone who is committed to transforming their life on this Earth into a path of wild beauty.

The Path of Wild Beauty is a unique four fold experiential journey spread over 6 months, exploring our inner and outer landscapes and re-awakening the power of our wild souls. Over four long weekends we meet to journey and work together, creating a life empowering skillset to help you to walk with grace and beauty along your life path. Additionally you will receive guides to practices to support you between our meetings.


You will learn how to develop a courageous heart through invoking your inner healer, discovering practices to embrace and transfigure your emotions. The wisdom of your warrior's heart carries you through both light and shadow as you learn how to face and transform your fears, and deepen your understanding of power. This readies you for the teachings of the Sage, as you learn to re-write your personal myths and call on the support of your Ancestors to fully reclaim your life and step into power. Eyes now open, you engage with the vision of the Seer. We look with open eyes upon our communities and our world to find the medicine hidden within. Engaging the fire of our spirits we create a dream for the future and step onto the path of wild beauty which leads us there.

This four fold training currently runs just once a year, with the next training starting in Spring 2018. Places are very limited, and if you would like to join the next training, please contact me as soon as you can.

HEart of the healer

Engaging the power of our compassionate and courageous hearts, we journey re-connect with our inner healer.  Through rituals of beginning and release, we re-commit to being the tenders of our inner gardens and learn to transform old and limiting beliefs into ones which empower and align us with our wild, divine essence.

  • Inner Sanctuary

  • Rituals of Beginning and Release

  • Transforming Beliefs

  • The Heart of Life

The most intimate relationship we will have in our entire lifetime is with ourselves.
No one hears our hearts the way we do.
No one knows our hurts the way we do.
We are the sages of our soft spots and our edges.
Self-compassion is showing up to that relationship with honesty and with love.

~ Jamie Ridler

wisdom of the warrior

We explore the nature of power, what it means in our lives and what it means to lose or give it away. Working with our animal spirit guides we track and restore lost power to our lives. Journeying to answer the call of the Warrior we begin to explore the terrain of our wild soul, our inner wilderness. Supported by the wisdom and courage of the Warrior and Healer we discover how we can face our deepest fears, disarming our inner demons and transforming them into powerful allies. We remember our power of choice and the value of boundaries. In partnership the Warrior and Healer help us reclaim our personal sovereignty and live a more deeply authentic life.

  • Boundaries and Thresholds

You enter the forest
at the darkest point,
where there is no path.

Where there is a way or path,
it is someone else's path.

You are not on your own path.

If you follow someone else's way,
you are not going to realize
your potential.

~ Joseph Campbell

Gifts of the sage

Together we journey to invoke the wisdom and power of the Sage. Through their eyes, and with the support of our wise ancestors, we look at the meandering paths of our lives and the stories we tell about ourselves. We honour and release our old myths in ceremony, then we re-weave our stories, incorporating the strong warp thread of our inner truths and integrating the lessons we have learnt on our path thus far. We step into the heart of our circle of reality and begin re-crafting our lives, creating a nourishing environment and building a supportive community within which to express our life's passion and purpose.

  • River of Life

  •  The counsel of the Sage

  • Calling our Ancestors

  • Re-weaving Ceremony

  • Death as an ally

  • Walking with the Star Maiden

  • Circle of Reality

Clarity of the seer

We learn the skills of Seer-ship, of how to perceive clearly and see with a strong eye, and to speak the truth of our vision. We will explore the myths of society as well as witnessing the changing face of our home, the Earth. We will discover what medicine is offered to us in this time, and explore how to be the change we wish to see in the world. Reclaiming the sovereignty of our true selves, we use our insights to inform our decisions on what we can do today to create a world which will nurture and sustain us all tomorrow.

  • Divination and Soothsaying

  • Earth's Sacred Witness

  • Medicine for the Earth

  • Our True Self

  • Dreaming a new Dream

  • Walking the Path

Be confused, it’s where you begin to learn new things. Be broken, it’s where you begin to heal.

Be frustrated, it’s where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough we can hear our heart’s wisdom through it. Be whatever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy, always.
