Hello, I’m Daithí.
Simply put, I believe happiness, well-being and access to healing is all about finding holding in nature. The more elaborate and involved the conversation becomes, the stronger, happier and more resilient you will be.
The beautiful riddle? There is a direct parallel between our relationship with ourselves and our relationship with our surroundings, that which gives us life and supports us; our energetic exchange with our environment. We are nature! If we learn to love ourselves, our experiences and our journeys, we stand a better chance of being happy and sitting “easy” in the world.
There is you and you. This is a relationship. This is the most important relationship. “Home” by Nayyirah Waheed.
In addition, narrowing the divergence between one’s true self (intuition, spirit, soul, etc.) and the persona one lives out in the day-to-day world can lead to all kinds of insights and healing.
I’m an Art Therapist in training and a Yoga Teacher and employ various forms of meditation, yoga, singing / chanting and art-making to help people re-tune into their own intuition and to begin or progress that conversation the universe has been willing us to have all along. We are constantly being beckoned to re-remember and come home to ourselves.
All is metaphor. Peace & light. X
Caminante, son tus huellas el camino y nada más; caminante, no hay camino,se hace camino al andar. Pathmaker, your footsteps are the path and nothing more; pathmaker, there is no path, you make the path by walking. - Antonio Machado -
