About Aideen

"I am passionate about nature and self-expression through art & crafts and their ability to heal and transform.

My background is in teaching with over 20 years working in education systems in Ireland and abroad with students of all ages including special needs.

I’m a Mum, a yoga and meditation practitioner of over 20 years, a hatha yoga teacher, kids’ yoga teacher and kids’ mindfulness trainee. I also run art & nature workshops for children & families ('Free to Be Me & 'Treehearts').

I have practiced and trained in Art Synthesis with Marie Perret ('Healing Art') for 10 years, which is a combination of meditation, energy awareness practices and painting. In this practice, we use body awareness meditation to go within and then bring out or express through image, colour & shape what is inside. These processes never cease to amaze in what can emerge from within each participant in terms of depth and transformative power. More recently I've certified as a Red Thread Guide and become a Guild Member with Shiloh Sophia's Intentional Creativity Foundation. Im also a 'Color of Woman' Intentional Creativity trainee and as part of this immersive training, I share 'Intentional Creativity Sessions' in addition to the guided meditations and Intuitive Art practices of Five Leaves Circles."
