A Wolf, a Dragon and a Seaturtle
When I was fifteen years old, the Wolf revealed himself to me while I was searching for guidance. At first, I didn’t know how to handle his growls. I didn’t understand why he nipped at my heels when I was scared to step up. But I recognized the loneliness in his eyes, and decided I wanted to heed his teachings. Together, we discovered the treasure in the deep, dark forest. He guided me in caring for my Pack. He has shown me how to walk the Path of the Wild – because my wild heart beats in tune with his.
When I was twenty-three years old, I met my Dragon for the first time. In a vision, I saw her, chained to a pole above a wild, raging sea. Her wings were shriveled and her eyes filled with sorrow. Over the years, I was able to break her chains – and at first, she roared to life with an all-consuming fire. But I learned to listen to her rage, and heed the call of Soul that she was offering me. Now, I can soar with her above the clouds, and rest in her warm, scaly embrace after a transforming adventure.
When I was thirty years old, after the birth of my child and my business, in the midst of a fierce post-partum depression, I felt another call. The Seaturtle sent me on a journey to Hawai’i, to integrate the profound indigenous knowingness that resides there, with the teachings I’d found in my own native lands. The Seaturtle’s wisdom is in slowing down, gathering perspective, and the deep Truth that there is just one Earth, our deepest desires as humans align, and we are in this together.
What Feeds My Fire
I deeply believe the solution to our global challenges lies in working together.
None of us are unimportant. The system we’ve created over centuries has gotten out of control. Some of us want to hold on to that system – mostly out of fear of the unknown. That fear is a natural part of being, too – but it doesn’t need to be heeded any longer. I believe that, in bridging the imagined divide – between eachother, between ourselves and nature around us – we can grow to be more than we were, and heal the world of what currently ails her.
I deeply believe the solution to our personal and communal challenges lies in remembering our ancient ways of being.
We learned to toil the land, we built cities and roads and machines… and we’ve altered our living space in ways our native ancestors wouldn’t recognize. But the intricate design of hormones and cells hasn’t changed all that much since we first evolved into our current form. We need to remember where we came from. Offices with plants in them have happier workers. People are prescribed forest bathing as a cure for depression. Cats, dogs and horses work wonders for elders with dementia and non-verbal young folks.
We need the wisdom of our most ancient predecessors, and a deep connection with the natural world around us, to truly find happiness. Thankfully, there are many different ways to integrate this knowingness in the modern societies we find ourselves in.
I deeply believe we are a part of nature – not above or below it, but a natural piece of the puzzle called Life.
When we tune into the heartbeat of Mother Earth, when we reconnect with the parts of ourselves that are wild & untamed, when we remember the dance that’s been going on since we first walked the earth… that’s when we experience true freedom. Rewilding is an ongoing process. Every movement we make in that direction, is a blissful gift of connection to something bigger and deeper than ourselves.
Feedback & Reviews
Here’s some lovely words people have said about my work <3
“Kayleigh challenges you to push your limits, loving and respectful, but nevertheless very inviting. If you dare to undergo this, you will notice that it will not just take you anywhere. Kayleigh will lead you to a place within yourself where your sheer strength and originality is waiting to be discovered. She sends you with a deep understanding of human nature. She asks you to explore, in a wonderful and creative way, sides of yourself that you may never have seen before. And all this with a zest for life and passion that is super contagious. No butterfly-like volatility, but true wisdom, with a deep connection with nature, and being human here on earth, with everything that goes with it.”
“The moment I see all those bears on the road, and I notice that I am fighting them hard. Yet they do not budge. Kayleigh let me breathe, walked with me and then slowed me down in a very warm and down to earth way in that whirlwind of “I have to now, and I have to be able to do it now” and the other “start before you are ready”. It’s nice if someone like Kayleigh walks with you for a while, and then you can continue on your own.”
“Kayleigh is friendly, professional and approachable. She knows what she is talking about and handles it carefully. She has a nice energy and creates a safe environment in which everything can and may be said. You can let your heart speak. She listens to you carefully and knows how to trigger the underlying aspects to make you think and give (new) insights. It gave me confirmation of what I already knew deep down, a right balance between action, rest and self-care.”
