Ancient Wisdom For Modern Times 

Primal Rising

Awaken. Transform. Thrive.

In our modern society we have forgotten who we are. We have neglected nature and disregarded our primal nature.

To heal ourselves and the earth we must remember who we are, awaken to new ways of living and transform our relationship with ourselves, the land and Spirit.

Through Primal Rising we use various tools, practices and techniques to transform your life and to bring together the fragmented parts of your being, helping you to restore your true essence. 

I want to help you to feel free, connected and ALIVE!


“Humans are a part of creation and shamanism is our way of connecting with the whole.”
~Will Adcock

Shamanic practices awaken us to the natural world around us, we re-member who and what we are - Nature itself.

Shamanism offers great possibility for healing - for ourselves, our communities and our planet.

Yoga, Tantra & 
Embodied Movement

Embodiment practices use the body as a tool for healing through self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-acceptance. Through mindful movement we foster balance, expression, and self-compassion.

Embodiment explores the relationship between our physical being and our energy. It involves the interaction of our body, thoughts, emotions, and actions.

At Primal Rising we explore embodied movement through the ancient practices of yoga, tantra, and dance.

Sound Healing

Sound is a gateway for healing and awakening.

Through sound we can heal our physical, mental and emotional bodies. It can also help reduce stress, anxiety and depression. 

At Primal Rising we make uses of various instruments (including crystal bowls, chimes, drums, didgeridoo) in individual and group sessions, sound baths, workshops, yoga sessions, and at retreats in order to create a deeper and more profound experience for those who participate.


"Circle is an incredible time to listen deeply, to let whatever that activates within us to work it's magic." 
~Mitlé Southey

The magic found in circles is difficult to translate into words. We, humans, gathered in circles to share our experiences, to tell stories, to sing, to move, to dance for thousands of years! When we sit in circle we take part in an ancestral practice that awakens something deep within us. It is healing, it is transformational, it is powerful.

Circles are an essential part of my work.

"For me, honouring what is primal means a few things: If my body is telling me that it is deeply healthy and feels good then go with it - it could be shifting a whole lot of stuff for me, If it makes my body move, do it. 
If it makes me smile, do it. 
If it makes me create something, do it. 
If it makes me feel alive, do it. 
If it makes me feel wild, do it. 
If it wakes me up so I see things in a different way, do it. 
My experiences have shown me that the more it makes me experience life in these ways, the more I need to do it. 
These are primal urges for me - and I think spontaneity plays a big part in me recognising whether these urges are primal or something my mind has come up with. 
Not that I'm going against the power of the mind, but what I'm talking about is the urge - the event, feeling, opportunity, whatever that drives a change in behaviour."

~Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”  ~Thich Nhat Hanh

I am woman, a mother, a wife, a friend, a teacher, a soul guide and forever a learner.

I am a very curious person. I love experiencing life and all it has to offer, the ups and the downs. My passion lays in sharing what I have learned with others so they can navigate life with a little bit more ease and grace. 

I think we can all agree that life can be very challenging, so a little help along the way is always welcome.

I have lived a life steeped into spirituality, the challenges and traumas of my childhood led me to find comfort in something bigger than myself.

After 20 years of self exploration, trainings, books and life experiences, I feel more and more grounded in myself and my work.  I am confident that I can be of support to others on their path if they feel the call to work with me.

I am here to support your becoming.
