Emma & her husband Davyd are the founders of Plant Consciousness, the ground-breaking London event about the conscious intelligent world of plants and trees. Much of their understanding of the healing process comes from years of their own inner work into childhood, ancestral and soul traumas. Combined with a daily spiritual practice they have gone to the depths of their souls to make awakening an embodied process and uncover the truth of their existence.
Davyd comes from a Celtic background with ancestry from both Cornwall and Ireland. This connection forms an essential part of his healing practice. After a powerful wake up in Egypt in 2010 he then spent 3 years studying Tibetan Buddhism in both India and Tuscany. He has taken teachings, transmissions and empowerments from; HH Dalai Lama, Dagri Rinpoche, Chamtrul Rinpoche and Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche.
After living overseas for 15 years a powerful experience with teacher plant medicine called him back to his homeland and so began a journey deep into the world of plants.
Since then he has spent 5 years studying under herbalist and plant spirit healer Pam Montgomery and is now a certified Plant Spirit Healer. He also completed a 2 yr apprenticeship in Ireland with medical herbalist Carole Guyett. In addition, 4 years were also spent studying and practicing the Yew Mysteries with Yew Shaman Michael Dunning, Geomancy with Dr Patrick MacManaway, Druidry at the Bardic level with OBOD, plus Celtic Shamanic Healing with David Leesley.
Davyd has learned Amazonian shamanism and how to work with the 3 core plants of the Kichwa tradition; Tobacco, Guayusa and Ayahuasca.
Emma & Davyd blend their plant spirit healing, geomancy, magic, wisdom teachings and pranic healing skills into a powerful methodology of shamanic and energetic healing.
