''Anara's Dance Form is a Great Initiation into Self Discovery, to be able to Express and Harness a special Medicine that emerges from our Genetic Global heritage.''
In her words
"ReWilding is centred on our human immersion back into the steady and wise flow of our natural environment. In the heart of the Boyne Valley, where the raw beauty of the land and the Imbas elements of nature, become your guide, you are invited to journey toward the within, toward the centre of your Labyrinth, to rediscover your inner compass and space of all knowing. Through dance movement, mindfulness, holistic breath practice, foraging, forest bathing, peace ceremony, Celtic blessing and guided journeys.
By entering the Labyrinth of the natural landscape, we may experience an unlocking, a sense of freedom or resolution. The resolution can be discovered along the pathways even before the moment of meeting your source at the heart centre of the Labyrinth itself. At its centre, you may find that there is no question only freedom and an opportunity to simply breath. A gentle inhale and exhale that never ends, stretching out the pause in our busy lives, that blocks out the silence, the space we need to fall in love with again for our ultimate wellbeing. In the calm quiet places, away from the hustle, the noise, the smells of familiar habits, something magical happens, and we are here to guide you through the doorway into that world of wonderful change and transformation."
"Anara has helped me along my life path in such a profound way and help me to change my life for the better. From doing the wonderful Reiki healing course, the healing sessions and life coaching, she has truly helped me in so many ways.
An amazing woman, so intuitive, nurturing and relaxed."
Becoming nature, the act of ReWilding,
A sacred gift to our soul self,
Is to return to nature as our home
Instead of a place we visit
Peace Revna Ravenwood
In her words
"As a traveller, a meanderer, an explorer of ancient ways, melded with the new, diving into my Wild Self and all that offers, learning that silence and observation, as well as allowing myself to be observed, holds so many revelations as to how we can step away from such a fast paced, consumer led society, placing one foot into the world of “The Other”, whilst able to keep the other foot in the world of the ‘mundane’. Sitting with silence is one of the most important ways we can reconnect to our innate wisdom.
Opening our senses to the wild world around us, all the sounds, smells, tastes and textures, seeing with new eyes, a clarity that before was almost inconceivable, because we live in such a high speed way.
When we strip all this back, even for one day a week for example, our life becomes different.
My Invitation for you is to step forwards on your own journey back to Wild Nature and Nurture, come through the doorway, shake off the day to day, and enjoy the path beneath your bare feet.
Let us lose our minds and find our soul.
Come with me as we travel the realms of wild plant medicine, learning to forage for the plants that heal us, speak to us in their own language and reveal their essences to ours, enabling us to become adept once more at communing with those who are hidden in plain sight.
Come with me as we develop our own way of holding Ceremony, for ourselves and for our communities.
Come with me as we work with all aspects of natural healing, with sound therapy, intuitive touch, creating a clean home free of toxicity, how to NOURISH our bodies with simple, uncomplicated, PRIMAL and Ancestral foods, and move away from relationships that bring our energy down, be it work or family and friends.
Come join me as we embrace the birthing of a new world."
"Before embarking on my journey to wellbeing, I struggled immensely with constant pain and constant gut problems, often feeling isolated and nowhere to turn. I hated myself for what I’d become and refused to look in any mirror, so banished sharing photos with my children because I was afraid of what other people would think of how I looked, which I described myself back then, Frumpy, Fat and fragile. The frumpy and fat were self explanatory but the fragile was how my mood swings would create the unbalanced lifestyle I was living.
So when Peace moved North of the country to look after her poorly mum, she reached out to me offering me a service and lifetime experience that I feel confident to say will never go back to the way I was before. This was the start to my Well-being Journey and experiencing the plant medicine herbal remedies, which she kind educated me on which became easily identifiable when suffering with chronic pain and fatigue.
Peace, has an incredible presence and approachable manner which made it easy to generate questions . As my Wellbeing practitioner she was flexible to my needs as an individual, and knowledgeable about the foods I should stay away from to help heal my gut. Her approach to natural healing was amazing as well as being tailored to my needs was somewhat challenging and yet she took every step at my pace and set tasks that were once constraints in to achievable goals.
So to sum things up, You’re Fantastic, Professional and Knowledgeable tailored to meet peoples needs. So please continue what your doing. Forever in your debt."
Celtic Faery Faith Healer and Chakra Dance Facilitator
As a child I felt a strong connection to the natural wild landscape of the West Coast of Ireland. I discovered a deep calling to become a healer and to help others to find joy through colour, crystals and dance.
I trained as a Reiki healer in 2013 and Chakra Dance in 2016 and have been healing 1 to 1 and facilitating land healings ever since. Like my peers, I believe that remembering our primal co-creative relationship with nature and creating a healthy planet both practically and spiritually, brings about a positive change for our future generations to come. During the retreat, I will be co creating the Celtic Shamanic Drum Journey, the Light Codes Healing Sound Bath and the Labyrinth Peace ceremony at Newgrange in honour of the Ancestors ourselves and our descendants to come.
I will also be facilitating the Awen dance session.
Anara and I will be holding a Celtic Faery Faith, Dance Labyrinth 'Awakening' Retreat in Ireland in Spring 2021.
“Anara, through her warm presence and gentle instruction, creates a loving space to experience a form of dance that is as expressive as it is healing and transformative. Alchemy is the word! I look forward to continuing my dance journey with her.”

"I have known Peace for many years and she is a wonderful soul, not just in the kitchen (have you seen her creations?!) but outside of it too. She has a real love for our planet and it’s inhabitants and feeds us with all good loving vibes and gorgeous food. We are all better off for her presence in the world. I have been very blessed for sure, to have had her presence in my life. Everyone should have a piece of Peace."

"Each Cacao Ceremony I have attended has been life changing – you hold a gentle nurturing space for others that is so needed at this time. Your chocolate is more than it seems, it truly is a medicine, a healing tool to open & awaken."
