THE FACILITATORS - KAREN & JANE
Karen Taylor was a mental health nurse for many years. She has personal experience of running recovery houses for people with psychosis and trauma. She is an international speaker and trainer, who has specialized in recovery and hearing voices. She is the co-author of the workbook ‘Working to Recovery’. Karen is mother to seven, a lover of singing, jazz, swimming & walking. Karen is one of the women Sharon Blackie wrote about in her iconic book "if women rose rooted". She has a strong affinity with the land and an interest in anything Celtic. She strongly believes that the land speaks to us and guides us if only we listen. Karen also underwent training with William Bloom and the spiritual companionship trust to be a spiritual companion. Karen is on her own spiritual journey which is deeply connected to the land and belonging.
Jane Eastwood has been working with complementary therapies since 1991 when she first trained to deliver Reflexology to clients and also studied counselling to enhance the practice. She has a nursing background but always felt that medicine didn't necessarily look at the individual in a holistic way. Wanting to understand the human condition more led Jane to study Biology and Psychology at University. At this time she was also very interested in healing work and pursued this alongside the scientific route. Eventually Jane added Indian Head Massage and Reiki to the treatments that she offers. Jane grew up in the countryside of Derbyshire. This environment gave her a love for, and an appreciation of nature and the natural world. This connection with nature has been a source of comfort and inspiration over the years. She was lucky enough to get the opportunity to study a Native American approach to looking at the earth and how humans fit into and work with it. She now weaves this into the way she works with nature around her and the therapies she works with on the Isle of Lewis. Jane also teaches Reiki so that people may begin or continue the work of healing themselves.
