I thought I’d better say a little about us and the journey that has brought us to a place of wanting to create this community. Riki and I (Katy) have been together for around 10 years. When we met all hell broke loose! It seems that we both felt safe enough with each other for our Souls’/body systems’ to think ‘Right…here we go…let’s take the lid off the trauma box!!’ There followed about 6 years of chaos, extreme emotions and experiences and a lot of running away…both from the trauma AND from each other a few times as well. It was a VERY intense time for both of us (and our families for that matter!) For the last 4 years we’ve had a much better understanding of what affects us and why. We chose to ‘take our power back’ and get rid of pretty much all addictions (our main addiction now is avocados!). We started eating raw food and that brought more awareness and personal power to dealing with our trauma experiences. We have done a fair bit of traveling and sleeping out in nature under a tarp to help us get more grounded and strong in ourselves. The chaos/hell we went through for a few years led to us having to read up on/understand lots of different philosophies and understandings about trauma. We spent time looking as subjects such as Somatic Experiencing, Shamanic Healing and Soul loss, Spirit Attachments and Spirit Releasement Therapy, CBT, Carl Jung, Shadow-work, Mindfulness, Breathwork, too many subjects for me to remember and list here. We also started to understand a little more about the control agendas on the planet and the impact of that in creating trauma and powerlessness in people. We are still both very much ON our journeys…not out the other side…but we feel we have enough understanding to set up this community and to help others and bring in therapists/community members who have a strong understanding of trauma and healing/integrating again.
Riki is a musician (his music website address is www.rikibuckingham.com and a healer. He is 34 years old and has strong interests in electronics, renewable energy and recording music. I am 43 and rediscovering my inner artist and singer. We both have a deep love of nature and a passion to live in harmony with the Earth. We feel strongly that we are here (along with many others!) to help humanity wake up and raise out of the heavier frequencies of fear, guilt, shame, hate etc. that have dominated on the planet for a long time. We have deep faith in every Soul on this planet and want to do the bit we can to encourage people to bring all the gifts, beauty and knowledge that they incarnated here to bring.
