Working with Sea Spirits


Sennen Cove

After moving to Cornwall and living close to the sea, I discovered the ocean had played a significant role in the reason I came here. Working with sea energies has produced remarkable results in my work. I have researched the connections between the moon, the tides, the shore life, the plants and most importantly the history of ancestral wise women who worked in unison with sea spirits. I am intrigued by the myths and legends of local merfolk and sea monsters.

Nothing compares to the wonderful taste of sea salt on your lips, the feel of sea water on your feet and the cool sea breeze blowing through your hair. Listening to the voice of the sea as the waves crash against the rocks accompanied by the haunting cry of seagulls  is nourishment for the body, mind and soul and activates deep healing.

 Lamorna, Sennen and Penberth Coves in West Penwith are sublime.  Fowey, Mevagissey and Polperro hold special childhood memories. Tintagel, St Nectan’s Glen and Boscastle are steeped in ancient history that compels me to visit frequently. The spectacular views from the cliffs of Tintagel and Boscastle are stunning.
