Co- Creating with nature.

Well, Talking Elder was born in 2017 when I was 'gifted' a branch from a powerful Elder tree in my garden. It simply grew from there. I made this into my very first talking stick, and have made many more since then.

I am also a qualified crystal therapist and love to work with crystals. I loved the idea of impacting your personal space with healing art work, so my very first healing art work was born.

I love getting out into nature with my little girl, we collect feathers, shells and pieces of wood together in local parks and woodlands that I then use to make my talking sticks. As I am also a crystal therapist I also use crystals with some of my sticks. I am shamanic in nature and therefore bring 'medicine' of certain crystals, animals, birds and elements together to aid personal development, healing or focus.

I am also a holistic therapist with a passion for writing. Therefore you will also find booklets and downloadable content on related topics that I have personally created.

Finally I am a qualified flower essence therapist and essence maker. Therefore Talking Elder also stocks my essence range - Gentle Heart Essences.

I hope you enjoy my shop. I gain much enjoyment from making my talking sticks, writing and developing my essence range. I hope you enjoy these too!

Thank you for spending time in my online shop and reading my story.
