About Me


A little about me (updated December 2012):

 

I was born in 1960, in Milltown, Co. Kerry, Ireland. I qualified as a nurse in 1982 in Cork City, Ireland. In 1991 due to life upheavals, I stopped nursing and began delving into the area of Holistic/Complimentary health and spiritual understanding. These had been lifelong interests, but due to survival demands and bringing up my two children this area had been somewhat, but not totally neglected. Now I began in earnest in the pursuit of a more spiritually fulfilling, whole experience of this wonderous mystery that is this life and to bring this magic home to my heart. Little did I realize what kind of a journey I was embarking on. 

 

WE HAVE A RIVER RUNNING THROUGH US, ITS CALLED OUR LIFE......

  

Dancing The Worlds and subsequently Sky Healing came about in 2005. I had already spent many years t

raining in various disciplines and spiritual practices. Always interested in the experiential and more visceral layers of life and this bodys purpose in it. It was time to offer the gifts I was seeing and experiencing. Embodied presence is my exploration and my passion. Our bodies hold secrets and gifts that can support us to transcend patterns of behaviour and thinking that no longer serve us, patterns of body and mind.

I had studied and practiced in the Nyminga tradition of Tibetan Buddism for many years and currently practice a form of Tibetan yoga from the Tibetan Bon tradition called Tsa Lung and a practice of healing sounds from this same tradition. Coming to the Bon tradition was an organic process after the death of my father when my connection with the Nyminga tradition came to a natural completion. I subsequently came to the Bon teachings through a book recommended to me by a friend called, Healing with Form, Energy and Light, in Shamanism, Tantra and Dzogchen by Tenzin Wangyl Rinpoche (thank you Jackini). The Bon tradition can be dated back to about 17,000 years. The primary focus in these traditions is Healing and relating and "dancing" with the elements of earth, air fire, water and space. Through the study and practice of various disciplines over these past 18 years, I have witnessed an organic progression of healing abilities develop and continue to amaze me.

For over 20 years now, I have a Healing practice in Cork City. I have also in the past 5 years been drawn to South America, specifically Peru where I have been fortunate to work closely with Shamans and healers from the  jungle areas of Iquitos to the Andes mountain around Cusco and Pisac. Visiting Macchu Picchu, studying the Andean spiritual tradition and working intensly with the plant medicines of Ayahausca and San Pedro has intensified my practices and the conviction through experience that we are more than what we may believe ourselves to be. Please see the articles section on this site for some writings on my experiences.

Because of the interest and requests I have received over the years due to my work, I started, under the name of Dancing the Worlds and Sky Healing therapies, to give a series of Workshops and individual sessions and it continues to grow from there.

I now also offer healing journeys to Peru more specifically to the sacred valley of the Incas. I am drawn to the simplicity yet profound wisdom of the Andean tradition and to the incredible healing energies of not only the places I have visited in Peru but the many wonderful people I have met both indigenous and "blow ins" as we call them here in Ireland. If you wish to experience a quantum leap in your life's journey, feel stuck in your comfort zone or just wish for a new, uplifting and revitalising experience, book a session with me or better still contemplate visiting Peru and steeping yourself in its magical culture and energy.

  
The term Shaman is often translated as "the walker between the worlds". I thought, well, why not dance.......

 

  I work with groups and individuals in Ireland and now in Peru.
