My journey has involved a life long fascination and inquiry into awareness, purpose, the human condition, love, sexuality, spiritual connection, soul wisdom, expansion, learning, unlearning, meditation, physiology, health, disease, exploring aliveness, sexuality, death and grief . Life, and my family in particular, have offered me deep opportunities. and intense challenges... to learn, to grow, to grieve, be with sickness, to know success, to overcome fear, to have the courage to step out of the box and to deeply question what I am doing with my life and what do I want ... 10 years ago a crushing grief event change everything and led me to this 'work'.
I am a group facilitator, Educator, Energy & Bodyworker in the fields of Shamanism, Tantra and Somatic Sexology. I am a member of the Lead Faculty team for The International School of Temple Arts (ISTA). ISTA is a collaborative group of teachers, facilitators and guides in the international field of Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Intensives. These are currently held all over the globe. I have facilitated ISTA events around the world including England, Scotland, India, Austria, Switzerland, Croatia, Ibiza, Ireland, Iceland, Bali, Brazil, Sedona, Guatemala, New Zealand, Israel, Portugal and Berlin. I am also a one to one guide and bodyworker, offering embodied, somatic, spiritual, sexology based sessions on line and in person. I am a certified sexological bodyworker, certified Shamanic Breathwork facilitator and Tantra Educator.
I was medical diagnostic scientist in surgery, in direct patient care for 20 years. I bring that experience of the physical manifestations of dis-ease to her current transformational healing & wellness practices. Elaine holds a Bachelors degree in Biomedical Sciences and a Masters degree in Medical Imaging. She bridges the gap from science to spiritually with love and respect for both.
I am driven by my desire for a greater depth, breadth, truth, freedom and authenticity of experience in my life. A richness in my connection firstly to myself - my spirituality, my sexuality, my body, my inner wisdom/shaman - and with others and the greater universal energy aspects of being alive.
My shamanic journey began following a deep personal loss, my grief cracked me open and drove me to question many aspects of myself and how I was living my life.
I began to explore meditation, tantra, Breathwork, shamanism, mindfulness and conscious sexuality as a portal to personal power and freedom. What I discovered changed every aspect of my life, I now long to share what I have learned with others. With my academic and medical science based background I came to these new experiences with a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism, what I found was that my background complemented and enhanced my understanding of this new reality.
I am forever grateful to have studied and trained with many pioneers & leaders around the world including Leora Lightwoman, Linda Starwolf, Joseph Kramer, Barbara Carrellas, Charles Muir and Bruce Lyon.
