I am a therapist who works and lives in west Cork Ireland. I have been working in the healing arts for many years offering Hawaiian bodywork, Shamanic Healing and various Energy therapies. I offer Cacao and breathwork Circles to women. My intention is always to work within a sacred space and create that for each client to allow a deep exploration into themselves and the reflections of themselves in the world that they are processing at any given moment. My journey into Artwork is inspired by the reemergence of the wisdom teachings of the Divine feminine and the healing of this aspect within ourselves and on a planetary level. Connecting with the Divine feminine energy each painting holds a different aspect of her mystery magic and guidance in close relation to the elements and nature.
I never know what is going to come through and as a result I have developed a skill of deep listening and patience allowing it to communicate its message. I set an intention and connect to the Canvas through chant or meditation feeling my way. It brings up the usual frustrations when I get blocked or don’t know what comes next but learning to trust and go with the flow results in a finished piece. Each has its own message and Wisdom teachings. As my art teacher thought me I always set the intention that my art is medicine for me first, and also healing for anyone who observes and feels into it, receiving their own message. I see these goddesses in my journey work and work with them to bridge the gap between ordinary and non ordinary reality.
It is my hope that they also create this communication with others who choose to work with them in this way or simply be held by their energy allowing the remembrance of their teachings to illuminate the way.
I’m Jen, a Feminine Embodiment Coach, Mythologist & Anthropologist.
I come from a maternal lineage of storytellers, raised on my grandmother, Frances O’Sullivan’s macabre tales of banshees, púcas, and changeling fairies. This fuelled my fascination with Irish myth and folklore, and eventually, a degree in Medieval Irish and Celtic Studies.
I married my native teachings with a curiosity of other cultures, and pursued my studies as an anthropologist, spending the past 14 years working in global justice. My experiences of myth cross-culturally provided insights into how humans make meaning in the world.
Yet, story is bigger than any one culture. Story is as old as time. Story is every living being who has graced this planet. Story is our lifeforce. It courses through our veins. Story is what it means to be human.
This is WHY we are here – to create our stories.
My life story recently pulled me home to my roots. It created a holy longing to fuse my passion for Women’s Empowerment with Celtic mythology. And so, the Celtic School of Embodiment became a new chapter. This is my legacy; inherited from Frances, and for my wondrous sons, Joel and Barra. By being here you are part of my story. I hope to become part of yours.
Through my own experiences using Shamanic and Transpersonal Therapies to heal myself I have gained a deep sense of empathy and understanding for those struggling with chronic health challenges, feeling overwhelmed with life and disconnected from themselves.
I am based in the ancient sacred Boyne Valley in Ireland, in the valley beneath the megalithic site of Sliabh na Calliagh (Loughcrew). I am surrounded by the magical energy that drew our ancient shamanic ancestors to this area. I am inspired by the stones that they left on the hills and fields in the Boyne Valley with their cryptic messages from the distant past. When we sit at these places we can feel the power and energy that inspired our ancestors.
As I have connected deeper with the healing energy of our land and plants I have become more drawn to identify myself as a traditional ‘Fear Feasa’ (pronounced ‘Far Fasa’). The Fear Feasa were our indigenous medicine men known as Healers, Seers, Ceremonial Facilitators, Ones who walk between the worlds, intermediaries with the Sídhe, and skilled with the knowledge of herbs.
I use a holistic approach to working with clients, developing a treatment plan depending on what is required. I incorporate the following range of treatments; Soul Retrieval, Shamanic Healing, Chelation Energy Healing, Shamanic Counselling and sound therapy.
