My Journey

From City Economist and TV Journalist to Shamanic Practitioner and Sacred Celebrant

I work in Rottingdean, Brighton, Sussex as an integrated healthcare therapist, shamanic practitioner, author, teacher and independent celebrant. I have a separate website for my healing and teaching work, CLICK HERE

Having come from a very 'left brain' environment, I never expected to be doing this! However, as the result of a variety of profound experiences I have been blessed to receive, for the last 16 years I have been on a dual track journey. From the right brain I have been experiencing many altered states of consciousness, learning how to allow our inner selves to reach their full potential and in the process, how to heal our integrated physical, mental and emotional bodies.

From the left brain I have been reading and learning, trying to understand dissociation, the psychology and physiology of stress and trauma, epigenetics, neuroplasticity and the modern post quantum physics of the inforealm, the holographic, entangled universe, in which our minds may simply be transmitters and receivers from a universal consciousness.

During this time there have been enormous advances in medicine and idealism, the concept that Consciousness is fundamental, a concept that was abolished to the realms of metaphysics for centuries, but which is now firmly back on the scientific agenda. The perennial philosophy is alive and thriving!

I see my purpose as being a bridge between the world of modern science/medicine and the ancient healing practices of the indigenous peoples around the world. What they knew and the healing they have offered for centuries is not hippy, new age, bull... it is being rediscovered at the cutting edge of neuroscience and post quantum physics. In that process I hope not to engage in cultural misappropriation. I am a shamanic practitioner, not a shaman.

The trainings and experiences I have had include working around the Medicine Wheel with Alberto Villoldo's 'Healing the Light Body School'; work with Q'ero shamans in the Andes and Shipibo shamans (and the plant medicine) in the Amazon; a remote viewing course with David Morehouse; the Gateway and Lifeline programmes at The Monroe Institute in Virginia; re-birthing with Deike Begg in London; meditation classes at many centres around the world; Tantra classes with Transcendence Yoga in the UK and Ma Ananda Sarita at Osho Nisarga, in India; The Collective Healing Journey online with Thomas Hubl, focusing on healing Collective and Ancestral Trauma; Training in Family Constellations; and online training in Somatic Experiencing with Peter Levine.

I have been a Reiki Master since 2007, I completed the Foundation Year at the Psychosynthesis Education Trust in London in January 2008, and I qualified in Craniosacral Therapy at the College of Cranio-Sacral Therapy in June 2009.

Having learned about the power and importance of ceremony and ritual for our well-being and connectedness in community, in 2018 I qualified as a celebrant within the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants so that I may offer sacred, spiritual weddings, vow renewals, namings and other ceremonies.

In my personal life I am married to my wonderful husband George Christie CLICK HERE - a shamanic practitioner, composer and musician and I have two adult children who live in California.

It is an honour to participate in sacred rituals and ceremonies when people want to celebrate a joyful event or a new opportunity, perhaps after a time of stress and difficulty, stepping into a new phase of life or a new way of being. I look forward to working with you and helping to make your dreams come true.

Namaste – from the spirit in me to the spirit in you.
