In a hectic world, it can be difficult to find the time to join a group meditation. Yet, the importance of community and the part it plays in healing and growing cannot be undermined.
That’s why I decided to create an online platform where we can meet as a community every week to meditate, journey and connect with the essence of the elements and whatever else presents itself to us as a community to heal.
The meditation will take place on zoom and is only accessible to those who pre-register for the session. You can register up to a few moments before the session starts by contacting me and I will send you the meeting link. You can choose to just join one session, or receive a weekly link to the meditation. I am presenting Elemental Journeys as an offering of gratitude to the community, there are no costs involved in participating.
To receive an invitation link for Elemental Journeys, you can contact me via the contact form below. Otherwise you can contact me at email@example.com or +353 85 22 348 22.
The core concept behind Be Yew – Elemental Energy and Sound Healing is to provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to remain balanced and connected to nature and to yourself.
At times, we are knocked off balance. We develop energy blocks, through stressful or upsetting incidents or environments, empathically absorbing energy from our environments or stagnated energy lingering after a physical illness has passed. Whatever the source or reason, these blocks appear in our energetic field or chakras as a trigger for us to focus inwards, heal and for personal growth.
The initial energy reading, will be done using which ever tools I am guided to use for each individual. These may include diagnostic tuning forks, journeying or other shamanic tools. This will be done prior to the 60 min one-on-one session.
As each person is different, I will compile tailored exercises to aid you to work on your own energy blocks, which will be completed over the course of seven days and explained to you during the initial session.
On day seven, I will do a follow-up energy reading, and offer you support to rebalance and maintain energetic equilibrium.
Initial Energy Reading prior to session + Initial Session 60 mins €50
Follow – Up 30 mins €25

There is something pure and clean about the Andean medicine. It is simple and so deeply connected and in synchronicity with the elements and nature. The tradition medicine has been maintained and preserved throughout the centuries by the Q’ero community, descendants from the last of the Incas, who fled to high altitudes in the Andes to escape the Spanish Conquistadors. There they live, at an altitude of over 14,000ft in simplicity, with no modern conveniences.
In the 1970’s, the community was discovered by an anthropologist who recognised them by their unique textiles. From there began the exploration into the wisdom and ancient teachings that the Q’eros had protected and guarded over the years.
The native language of the Q’eros is Quechuan, which outdates the Incan Empire itself. The Incan Empire is well remembered for its fine architecture, which in some archeological sites appears to be downright impossible given the tools they would have had at the time. Another characteristic of the Incas were their dedication to agriculture and the daily homage they paid to the Pachamama, Inti and the Apus, what we often refer to as Gaia and the Sun. The best land was used for agriculture, which was their measurement of wealth. The land deemed less worthy of cultivation, was then used to build their homes upon, which, even for the royals, were small and humble.
Offerings and Values
The Q’ero tradition focus’ strongly on the exchange of energy and gratitude. Before entering a sacred site, permission is asked and a small offering is made. Despachos are intricate ceremonies which are used as a greater gift to the Pachamama and the Apus in return for health, success of a project or for a bountiful return come harvest time. Each time one sits down to eat or to drink, a small offering is given to Pachamama and Inti as gratitude and as an act of service.
As wealth and class is measured by agricultural success, those who have a greater understanding of the land, the animals and the elements, produce the greatest return and are held in high esteem.
The mountains are deemed to be sacred and the link between those on earth and the ancestors. This is why they are known as the Apus. Many are given their own name and God-like representation, with their most sacred mountain being known as Apu Ausangate. Those who study in the P’aqo, or priest tradition, complete much training and rituals, before ascending on the final mountain to become initiated into Pampamissayuq or Altomissayuq.
The collective goal towards higher global consciousness
Why are the teachings of the Q’eros so important to the western world?
In the western world, there is a great disconnect from nature and the natural cycle of human life. We have become dependant on technology and many of us spend ninety per cent of our time indoors, with artificial heating and lighting. As theories of the consequences of global warming and pollution filtrate the media and government, more and more people are searching for a way to return to a simpler and more organic way of life. The simple fact of the matter is, we have a significant imbalance when it comes to the exchange of energy or Ayni. We are taking and destroying far more than we are giving and creating. It is a trend which cannot last for much longer.
The Q’ero P’aqos teach us to live in harmony with the earth, and in harmony with ourselves. It teaches us to take responsibly for the roles we play in life, our reactions and emotions, and the impact we have on the earth. We are guardians of the earth, and with their knowledge, we can actively work to preserve the natural beauty and environment that we live in. They understand the art of agriculture, of living in simplicity, an art that our ancestors too had perfected. The traditions of the Andes are not there to teach us something new, something our genetic DNA does not already know. Rather it is there to help us to remember and revive so that we may learn to live more in coherency with our own true essence and that of the earth.
Commencing the Camino
More and more people are beginning to realise that Peru is much more than a touristic destination and a place of historical relevance. Many are opting to travel to Peru as a place of pilgrimage, to learn, heal and grow as a person. Many are guided to start connecting with the ancestors, their wisdom and traditions, to reconnect with the teachings of nature and to live a more balanced and holistic life, taking full responsibility with ones own growth and development.
The teachings of the Andes are so pure and simple in their essence, that we as westerners can implement them into our day to day lives easily. It may take us a long time to have the same understanding of life and the way of the natural world, but the simple rituals, like daily offerings, taking five minutes to acknowledge the presence of your ancestors and their guidance, expressing gratitude for the guidance and abundance we receive and learning to take responsible and control of our body and mind, can all be understood and applied by each and every one of us. How far you travel down the path of understanding is up to you.
Journey of Initiation to Cusco, Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca, Puno September 21st to October 5th 2019
In September, we will be making the sacred pilgrimage journey to connect with the origins of the Inca civilisations and the original teachings of the Q’eros.
Connect to the ancient wisdom of the indigenous Q’ero Nation, through the teachings of renowned Q’ero Priest and Shaman Nicolas Pauccar Calcina, direct descendant from the last Inca. He is the author of “The Language of a Q’ero” and “The Last Mountain”, the documentary “Humano” and creator of the KawsayPacha school in Cusco, Peru.
We will visit stunning and sacred archeological sites from the time of the Incan Empire, connecting with the sacred energy and learning about the ways and traditions of the Incas and their people, including Machu Picchu.
We will then continue on to Puno, to connect to the origins of the Incan civilisation, the womb of the earth from where Manac Capac and Mama Ocllo rose to go on and establish the ancient Cusco and centre of the Incan Empire.
Winter can be a particularly difficult time of year for many. It can appear that the world is shroud in darkness. A period of rest and stagnation, which brings a sense of unease to many.
Weather often prevents us from getting out and about as much as we would like to. I think back to the many times I have had the best intentions upon waking to get out and go hiking, only to look outside and see the miserable weather presenting itself for the day. It’s a time of restrictions and impediments placed upon us due to minimal daylight hours, poor weather conditions and the sheer lack of motivation that comes with it all.
Or are we mistaken and just disconnected from the true essence of it all? Is winter really a dreary time of the year, or have we become so out of touch with the essence and natural cycle of the seasons that we fail to realise the beauty and healing nature of the winter months?
Winter is not a time of death and depression and miserable weather. It is a time of retreat and rebirth. Nature knows this, our ancestors knew this, and now it is time for us to remember this.
Plants become dormant in winter. Respiration slows down, photosynthesis slows down and the vital force of the plant retreats downwards into the earth. It doesn’t do this because it is dying, it does this so that it can replenish and rebuild it’s strength for when the weather begins to warm and it can begin to grow once more in spring.
We can understand a lot about the our natural life cycle from that of the plants.
We tend to feel sluggish and unmotivated in winter. That’s because winter is not a time for pushing yourself and “getting out there”. Our bodies know what we need, but in today’s world, we are expected to be on the ball 24/7, 365 days of the year, giving 100% without fail. This is a major reason why so many people suffer from stress and become completely out of sync with their own bodies.
So, what should we be doing instead? What can we do to become more in sync with our natural environment?
Become synchronised with nature, the elements and seasons doesn’t have to be a huge challenge, nor does it have to take more than 5 mins each day. There are many ways in which you can incorporate simple energetic exercises into your daily routine, without it taking up much of your time. Here are some great examples to get you in sync and connected:
Grounding Meditations: Take five minutes, before you go to sleep or when you are sitting down to relax in the evening. You can find simple free guided meditations on youtube or check out a couple of my recorded meditations on my facebook page. As you connect deep down into the centre of the earth, imagine that you are back in mother earths womb, or in a small seed. Gather the nutrients you need to heal and replenish your life force, and get ready tosprout through the surface into a wonderful, balanced and re-energised powerful being!
Reflection: Dedicate five minutes in the day to tuning into your energy field, emotions and lifestyle. Address anything that no longer serves you, whether it is holding you back or keeping you on the wrong path. Let it go. Release it. You don’t need it. Replace it with light energy and start making space in your life for new opportunities and energy to flow!
Rest: Winter is a time of recuperation and a time of keeping a slower pace. Slow down, reduce your own expectations of yourself and allow yourself time to rest. Take five minutes to just sit, or have a cup of nice, warm tea. This five minutes is a gift, from you, to you. It is a symbol of self-appreciation, love and care.
Each day you can choose one of the above exercises or create your own! Little by little, you will find yourself become more in sync with your own needs this winter, and with the season’s essence itself.
Each exercise brings a sense of peace and ease, and most importantly, encourages self care. Don’t be part of the rat race this winter, be connected to yourself, to nature, to life itself. Be You!
