Energy Healing at Wise Woman Weekend: Interview with Amber Elderfield

Amber Elderfield at Wise Woman Weekend

Amber Elderfield and Róisín Ní Chéileachair will co-host an Introduction to Energy Healing workshop at the Wise Woman Weekend, May 25th – 27th 2012.

“This a workshop for anyone who has ever wondered about energy healing: What is it? How does it work? Can anyone do it? Does it exist at all? Well the good news is that it does exist, and with a little practice anyone can do it. This introductory 'hands on' workshop is aimed at those who would like to know more about energy healing and have direct personal experience of sensing and working with energy.  Participants will learn techniques for charging and clearing their own field; they will take part in a series of simple exercises exploring how to sense energy in different ways, and then learn how to do a basic whole body healing on themselves. This playful, interesting and thought provoking workshop will be held in a safe, sensitive and compassionate way by two experienced energy healing practitioners. Come explore!

“I have three great passions in my life, healing, world dance and nature, and I’m blessed to be able to work in them all.

“I have been involved with the Wise Woman Weekend since the very beginning when I was first invited by Pauline to give a dance workshop.  I love spending time with so many amazing and inspiring women.  The weekend is so nourishing and uplifting. Amantha Murphy’s workshop is always a special one at the weekend for me. I make sure that I don’t miss her workshops and have got so much out of them. I hope that the event will continue to grow, develop and flourish.”

When asked what one gem of wisdom she would share with other women, Amber replied: “Don’t miss the Wise Woman Weekend!”

The greatest difficulty she sees facing women today is: “Stepping into our power and really valuing ourselves, really honouring our unique knowledge, wisdom and gifts, and the positive impact that these have on our planet.”

Amber originally trained and worked for a number of years as a medical research scientist, both at university and as a post-doctoral research fellow running a research group at a major hospital, but she became increasingly disillusioned. Feeling that there was more to life and health than molecules, she eventually escaped. She spent a few years travelling the world exploring diverse careers as a fruit picker, conservationist, removal woman, artists’ model, organic gardener, historical costume maker and Egyptian Dancer, during which time she came across several healers, each of whom showed her something her scientific mind couldn’t explain. Eventually, very curious, but totally sceptical, she felt the only way to find out was to experience it first hand - and sign up for a 4 year course! Amber has spent the last 9 years exploring energy healing, is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, Europe, and runs a healing practice in Galway. She still indulges her other great passions: living and working closely with nature in a yurt in the countryside, and performing and teaching Egyptian Dance and Zaar healing trance dance in Galway City and throughout the country.
