Helen who has been a holistic therapist for 23 years and is trained in Ayurveda and Yoga . Her passion is Flower Essences and as a Plant Whisperer she believes Flower essences to be medicine for the soul that have deeply grounded her and spiritually expanded her awareness and connection with the land and current times. She believes that being in touch with nature and the seasons is the key to restoring our health. The farm Swainshead Hall has been in Helen's family for 52 years and is still a working farm. She firmly believes that the farm is the heart of a community and when people gather together within a natural space wonderful things unfold. After 3 years of Geomancy and Shamanic work on the land the farm land offers more than just a break away for your busy life, her work with plants and the land offer a deep connection where the Alchemy of plants and Flower essences can empower us and bring us into a deeper sense of truth. Helen is intuitive an intuitive and sensitive empathy that is intune with her landscape and environment.
It quickly became Helen's dream to turn part of the farm into a holistic hub which welcomes alternative and quirky approaches to health and wellbeing. The Gathering Fields firmly believe that there is not only one modality for achieving health and happiness but a combination of different approaches. The farm is now taking on a new life and the phrase "getting back to you roots" fully embodies the work we do at the Gathering Fields. Helen offers a safe nurturing space which allows people to fully express themselves through sitting, reflecting, and singing, creating and connecting with Mother Nature. This is the very land that runs deep within Helen's soul and she firmly believes that the more you connect with the land the more you learn and connect with yourself. Profound healing comes when we work in nature. Here we hold communal space where we can interact with others or simply be alone. We welcome you to share stories, skills, music, make friendships and from here we can bring people together to grow a community.
We host a variety of native trees, oak, hazel, elder, silver birch and Hawthorne which makes it the perfect place for interacting with wildlife and the faerie folk! You can also build a den, make a fire or simply discover the joy of edible plants. In the cosy barn Helen and others teach what they know, you can access a workshop or simply hire the Barn and Bunk house for your own event. We welcome any one passionate about living on this earth in these times of great spiritual awakening.
