My Spirit name is Amaru.
In Andean Mytholology, Amaru is an iridescent winged serpent able to transcend earth and sky, dwelling in subterranean places.
The medicine of sweet serpent/Amaru is about releasing and shedding outmoded ways of being and seeing with fluidity and grace.
I hold that transcendence of earth and sky, supporting my clients to heal disowned parts of themselves, while releasing what no longer serves their highest and best.
Amaru Aromatherapy offers a wide expanse of organic essential oils, synergies, hydrosols, herbal infusions, salves, spritzers, roll-on’s, botanical incense, beeswax candles, crystal altars and Ouroboros Water, an alternative to Florida Water, used in ceremony and for cleansing and sanitizing.
I am a Holistic Aromatherapist with the School for Aromatic Studies and the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy since 1997. I hold a diploma as a Traditional Herbalist with the Science and Art of Herbalism. I am a mesa carrier with the Shamanic Yoga Institute. I like to think that I'm Reiki attuned, herbal infused and trauma informed. I hold space with an open heart, and have come full circle many times with SYTT Medicine Wheel’s as a participant and teachers assistant since 2010. Amaru is the spirit name given to me in ceremony by the founder of SYI Christine Selda.
Wellness Consultations include a plethora of options, customized for the individual, and include the healing modalities of plant medicine, aromatherapy, herbalism, crystals, candles, energy work, mindful movement, mantra and meditation.
I am honoured to be in service to community having facilitated many healing circles and ceremonies. I offer various workshops: Introduction to Aromatherapy, Essential Oil Blending, Artisan Distillation and Elemental Healing.
I am fuelled by a passion to live in a world free from oppression and patriarchal attitudes. I share my voice in a number of ways as an anti-violence worker at the Howe Sound Women's Centre in Squamish, and as medicine song singer and Priestess.
My blood lineage and ancestors are from Denmark and Ireland. I am a settler and guest on the unceded territory of the Squamish Nation and Coast Salish people.
