I am a Toltec healer and transformational worker, and for the last five years I have worked within many shamanic traditions for my own healing as well as the healing of others. It's been a long journey of perseverance which has taught me much about the plight of humanity, and the desperate need for people to heal and reconnect with themselves, each other and the earth, to make this world a better place. This is my life's work, and there is no turning back. I am here doing all that I can to reach out with the resources I have to make sure this work reaches the people who need it the most.
In 2009 I began a long and arduous healing journey and wanted desperately to reclaim my life after over a decade of opiate addiction. Then in 2011 I prepared to undergo a detox to become completely free of the methadone I had been prescribed, which had become like a lead weight around my neck! After 36 hours of therapy, I emerged with hardly a trace of the usual withdrawal symptoms, and for the first time in years I really felt an overall sense that I was alive in my body. I had an incredible amount of energy, and remember thinking how I would love it if I could help others in this way. Opiate addiction is rife in the UK, and in my home town of Cardiff as in many other cities in the country there is an epidemic. I decided there and then that it was my mission in life to learn of different ways to help others to heal themselves of their own sufferings - addictions, traumas or whatever issue needed healing.
So in 2012/2013 I travelled to the Peruvian amazon to study plant medicines under the tutelage of world famous healer/medicine man Ronald Wheelock.
2014/2015 saw me working closely with a Bwiti medicine man, before I met Sergio Magana Ocelocoyotl in 2015. And now as I approach the end of this stage of my training with him, another of my teachers has invited me to Mexico for an intensive training in November, to refine my medicine work and space holding practice so I can be of better service to others.
I have a vision of one day building my own retreat centre for those who need a place to detox, heal, and recover. But first it's completely necessary for me to deepen my practice and complete the training which I began a few years ago. I am doing this because there are so many people out there who need help, and I know that a huge number of people are looking for alternative ways to cure themselves, as the current system does not really cater for this. If you can help make this dream a reality, then please donate what you can. Thank you!
