Freya Davies

Freya is a hedge-walking herbalist living alongside the River Wye in Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.

Her work stems from a deep connection with the natural world, fed and nurtured by a childhood roaming the countryside, picking wild foods and now connecting with hedgerow plants and trees as a sensory herbalist.

Freya’s background includes studying astrology, training in kinesiology, permaculture, herbalism and plant craft and more recently Ecoshamanism. She weaves these strands through all her work, in her celebrations of the cycles of life and crafting medicine. Her heartfelt belief is that the stronger we connect with the land around us and the more integrated into this intricate web of wonder we become, the more enriched our lives are and the more we can do to ensure that the actions we take will support all life on earth.

I have seen the wonderful continual results of the protocol used weekly at the Al Manaar Mosque in North Kensington to deliver the NADA protocol every Tuesday morning in aid to the victims of the Grenfell Fire. It’s an honour to be part of the healing.

I am also currently delivering this protocol at The Hospice in the Weald in Pembury, Tunbridge Wells to in-patients and out-patients. 

The NADA treatment generally induces a state of relaxation and better energy – it has a balancing and homeostatic effect on the patient enhanced by the unique group setting.

It is my mission statement and passion to pass the healing on to others and on and on and on.

Winter 2019 Update

Welcome the festival of Samhain, held from October 31st. This is the beginning of true winter, ‘The dark half of the year’. It is said that during this period the veil is at its thinnest, and that barriers between the physical world and spirit break down, allowing more interaction between the human and spirit world. It is common for big decisions/changes to be acted out during this period. It is also time for rest and recuperation. It’s time to charge ones battery, sleep more, rest more, read more. Quiet time…

It is a beautiful autumn with the most vibrant colours. All the leaves are gently dropping. A great time to walk and to activate ones senses. You can really smell this time in its air. It is also a good time to observe ones spiritual practice and self care. Make some adjustments and some changes to suit you and to enrich your day. Autumn to me is all about change. It’s like going back to school to a fresh year with new beginnings ahead.

After a wonderful fun filled summer, I am so enjoying this time of reflection and integration of the recent months. Summer is always so Yang, fast, hot, loud. Now comes the Yin, slow, peaceful, quiet – an opportunity to head deep inside and reflect.

In October I treated myself to a workshop in Spain. Shamanic Trance Dance with Zelia Pye www.shamictrancedance.global A wonderfully held space in which to truly let go and welcome deep healing. I will definitely be returning.

Work continues well and new exciting things are coming up for 2020.

Qualified Eco Shamanic Practitioner

Eco represents ‘Earth’. As we enter this new century, it is becoming more and more necessary to see ourselves as Earth, to see, hear, touch, taste and feel ourselves ‘as’ Earth rather than being ‘on’ it.

To really connect with our five senses. To wake up our sixth senses. Our spiritual guide within us. Ecology is the study of interactions among organisms and their environment. Shamanism is an ancient cross cultural technique used to access the spirit world in order to gain healing, information and advice in our daily lives.

Eco Shamanism helps bring the world of spirit and our sensate world into a closer communion. Eco Shamanic healing is dependent on the ‘more human world or beings’. It is a process whereby we take our problems, questions and concerns out into nature and work directly in the Middle World.

There are a range of practices and techniques which accompany this work – the most important having the ability to commune with nature with our six senses. This relies on opening our hearts to the truths that are reflected back to us from ‘becoming the earth’. It is a fundamental understanding that people are an integral part of the natural world and every earthly form is animated by its own soul or life force.

A person may feel the need to use shamanic work to heal a physical, emotional or spiritual trauma or to find a new direction or a feeling of need to connect more strongly with Spirit. Clients are taken on a journey of discovery. The principle purpose is to assist find ones ‘Spirit lead path’.

Extraction Medicine
This is a method of healing that can remove any Spiritual blockages that are causing problems within the body. This could be manifesting emotionally, physically or psychologically. You don’t have to aware of when they were picked up but this happens in a variety of ways including direct confrontation. The removal of these blockages can help clear space for the return of soul essences. Following the removal, a power animal is retrieved in order to act as a protective in assisting spirit.

Soul Retrieval
People feel sometimes that ‘something is missing’. They have little energy or no lust for life. Dissociated in some way. This form of healing allows soul essences that have been lost during previous life traumas (accidents, grief, shock, abuse etc) to return to their body. It is a very nurturing way of resorting balance in the body that can empower a person, so they feel solid in themselves and now that they truly belong here. It is often described as a feeling of coming home again.

Distance Healing
All the above shamanic healings can be undertaken using distance healing. This is carried out tuning into the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy of the client.

Divination Healing
Oracular work using tools to foresee the future based on the present or past. Helps us see what’s going on in our lives, families, and business. We see how the past has shaped the present and how current actions can shape the future, including magical and spiritual efforts.

Eco Mapping
Stitching our inside stories into the outside world and letting the outside world stitch its stories into our inside world. Spirit healing for humans using perception and perspective . Taking a guided walk in nature, using omens and metaphors creating new maps. ‘Greater part of the soul is outside of the body’. Create new maps by encountering spirit in our outer environment as a direct reflection of ones inner spirit using our senses to receive direction.

End of Life Journey
A guided meditation journey for a peaceful passing, with the intention of eliminating fear and anxiety.

Fee per session – £85.00 (2 hours + preliminary diagnostic work). Email sarah@sarahclifford.co.uk to book your session

Spring 2019 Update

Welcome The Spirit Of The Spring! 

Hey, Spring is coming!

You know that Spring has fully arrived when you see lambs skipping across the fields.  It hasn’t been an artic winter but nevertheless it’s so joyous to feel the strength of the sun again.  Being able to shed coats and scarfs……  Mustn’t speak too soon but as we approach the Easter weekend, apparently its going to reach 20 degrees. Enjoy!

Eco Shamanic Practitioners course

I have been deep nearing the end of my Eco Shamanic Practitioners course with Mandy Pullen.  Looking to qualify in June and am looking forward to working with various methods of healing, Eco Mapping, Divination work, Soul Retrieval etc.  It has been totally mind blowing in a way that I did not expect.  It has highlighted my connection with nature and taught me how to respect our environment more and work with it rather than against it.

Summer 2018 Update

What a stunning, beautiful summer we are having…………….. I do hope everyone is taking full advantage of it and dropping SOME CHORES, as we need to grab it while we can.

Love Match Retreat

A month ago I spent a lovely, healing weekend at a country house in Colchester (Stanway pictured above) with 8 delightful ladies on a Love Match Retreat. The CEO Genevieve who delivered the Life Coaching, Angela who is a Clinical Psychologist and delivered some unbelievable lectures on Attachment Styles, Family Patterns and Narcissist Tests (Yes, we had to fill it out too)!!!!!!!!, we all have narcissistic behaviour in us.  I learnt so much about others and myself.  I delivered the Meditation, Acupuncture Treatment together with Healing and on the Saturday led a Fire Ceremony with the intention of ‘Letting Go’. Their website is now live, www.lovematchretreats.com however they are already taking bookings for the next one which is running Friday 16thNovember until Monday 19thNovember.  If anyone is interested, please contact Genevieve by email g2awa@yahoo.co.uk  I was so impressed learning and understanding behaviour that I am going to ask Angela is she will come down to ReTreat in Tunbridge Wells and run a day for us locally. I will keep you posted on dates for that.

2018 Summer events and new classes

Practicing Sivananda

Spring update 2018

It has certainly been a busy few months.  One of my New Year Commitments was too try and do less and make more time!!!! Well for sure at the moment that has certainly not happened…….. However Spring has Sprung, light mornings, grass growing, beautiful plants appearing and colour in the garden has arrived. Yippee!

Work has been busy. In April NADA GB held a Mentoring Day for trainers. www.nadagbacunpuncture.co.uk One of the topics for discussion was: Setting up Training Courses. I am very excited to get going on this. When the 5 point NADA protocol is mentioned, one automatically thinks of Substance Abuse, drugs and alcohol but it goes far wider than that.  The results for PTSD are amazing. Volunteers are working every Tuesday morning implementing this procedure as a drop in service for victims of the Grenfell Fire. It is open to anyone. The clients get to come in, receive the ear acupuncture, are left to sit for as long as they require under quiet supervision. Primarily this treatment allows for the Mind and Body to relax to allowing healing. One of my aims this year is to try and spread the work to Care Homes, Hospitals, Teachers in Schools, Paramedics and on and on. People can lead such stressful lives with so much expected of them, it’s hard sometimes to cope with the stress. I am hoping to be able to go into these places of work and train up individuals to be able to carry the protocol out for themselves to treat their staff resulting in a more balanced, calmer working environment – and who doesn’t want that????

Gorgeous lambs at the course in Gloucester

I have just started my Eco Shamanic Practitioners Course in Gloucestershire.

What a wonderful weekend of Sun, Rain, Fire and Earth. We were initiated out of the Ego and into the Eco!!!!! I can already see that this is going to take my work to another level to offer deeper relaxation and healing. Working much closer to Nature on a level that I have not experience before and I am very excited to see it expand.

Enjoy the beginning of a new season and hope to see you soon.

Love and Light Sarah Xx

Brrrr from chilly Speldhurst.

After a truly wonderful summer retreat in Wilderness, South Africa it is back to the English mid winter.  Socks,  log burners, tea and digestives……….

Although I have been to South Africa before, I have never been to Wilderness.  What a truly magical place.  Bigger than a village and smaller than a town, it seemed to have everything that we needed.  Although we had some rain,  the weather was wonderful.  To be bare sleeved in T shirts and not to think about jumpers and coats was such a treat.  A really good dose of Vitamin D was received.
