About Beth

~

Hi. Where to begin… I’m in my early 50s. I grew up playing in the woods and on the sea coast of Nova Scotia. I suppose I still do that, in a kind of grown up way. I paint and draw from my life with nature, I make medicines from the earth, I lead journey circles and plant meditation circles. I run a two year shamanic/earth alignment apprenticeship circle. Music and movement have been a big part of my life since I was a child; I was always on my bike or playing an instrument or singing. Sailing became a big thing for me in my 30s, I was often chasing big adventures and pushing myself pretty hard. As my body ages and changes the movement is more free form earth dance and yoga, but I still ride my bike and sea kayak, just not as intense! I practice the Wim Hoff method in a gentle way, picking my days and honouring what my body is telling me. I focus on the breath, the stillness, and listening. I swim in the ocean every day in the warmer months. I love to cook. I love to eat what I can from the land…my father was like that too (he was a healer and adventurer). I helped him cross over when I was 27. I have a happy home and welcoming art studio and healing room. You’re welcome to book an appointment, if it’s nice out we can do the session outside if you like.

My Own Healing Journey:
I knew something was up when I hit puberty because things started to get kind of strange for me. I was a deeply spiritual dreamy creative child, but my teenage years were very difficult. I felt in almost constant crises from about age 12 on! I didn’t know that this would eventually lead to being a healer, but it did. By the time I was 30, I began my shamanic training. I’ve trained extensively in art, shamanism and shamanic healing, flower essences, herbalism, yoga and Ayurveda, breath work, astrology and tarot. All this was at first just to help my own psychosomatic symptoms and understand the depth of what I was experiencing. But when one learns so much that is so valuable and helpful they can’t just keep it to themselves. So I became an artist and a healer. I love passing on what has healed me and helped me evolve and transform. I’m super passionate about giving people tools for healing. And I love being in that healing space with another person (plant or animal too!). I think we are here to heal and create. I KNOW we are here to heal and create!

Please get in touch if you would like to join my growing newsletter community for updates on future classes and events including special announcements and early bird savings. As well if you would like to book a healing session, online or in person, I’d love to hear from you.

Blessed Be
