Shelley Eyesis Cochrane
Alchemist, Permaculturist and Retreat Founder/Creator
Shelley journeyed through her childhood feeling unseen and misunderstood. Being invisible became her safe place. However, she felt a deep inner conflict between the desire to be truly seen and the anxiety visibility brought upon her.
Finding the tools to resolve this inner conflict, to express herself and be seen, became her life’s quest.
At the age of 27, while sat under a tree in her permaculture paradise, Shelley had a powerful realisation―she realised that fear and excitement were the same energy and that she had the power to bring what was hidden into light. Casting off the veil of invisibility, she stopped hiding and determined to illuminate from within.
On a deeper level, Shelly realised that her garden had facilitated this learning. She had created it and it (in turn) had created her.
She now teaches others how to connect with their innate inner power and creative abilities through the language of alchemy, nature and plants, empowering them to connect to their inner landscapes.

Sharon felt fearful and alone through much childhood and closed her heart, becoming guarded and defensive as a protective mechanism.
Unable to maintain loving relationships, much of her adult life was spent feeling confused, unloved, and unable to change.

Working with body psychotherapy, Sharon transformed and released the grief and fear held by her body while increasing her levels of vitality, opening herself to love, intimacy and pleasure in new ways. And after several years of commitment to healing, she has slowly mended her broken heart.
