Heidi Wyldewood is Barefoot Heartsong. Heidi is facilitator of healing journeys, mentor, priestess, cunning woman, walker between the worlds and a sacred activist. She is a keeper and creatrix of wild medicine and womb wisdom traditions, living life from the heart, often with the soles of her bare feet on Mother Earth. Her main areas of interest, training and understanding, which she weaves into her sharings, are Goddess traditions; womb wisdom, both ancient and new; Toltec, Inkan and Celtic shamanism; symbolism within fairy tale, myth and folk lore; Earth Magick; yogic philosophy; mysticism, female empowerment and sacred sexuality.
Heidi’s personal path is one that has evolved, over many years, not only from the combined teachings, practices and initiations she has received from magickal, shamanic and yogic traditions, but mostly borne of her connection to the Land and place, from deep intuitive listening and channelled information. Having brought it all home, rooted herself in her indigenous source, she practices and teaches from that space: the currents, tides and shifts of human evolution, and the whispers of nature and spirit in the here and now. It is a path of both embodiment and transcendence. It is one of embracing both the light and the shade. She has sat at the feet of some excellent and well renowned teachers, and continues to do so. She also recieves much guidance from the inner planes and brings it forth in practical application in her own life and for others.
Heidi is passionate about the personal journey of empowerment and transformation that is, for each of us, ours alone to take, and the subsequent positive effect to the wider community. She truly believes that each individual is their own healer and sometimes all it takes is intuitive guidance, the passing on of wisdom, sometimes a little assistance at an energetic or a soul level, and encouragement from another to facilitate that process. The tools she offers via her healing work and her teachings are those that she has personally used to completely change her own life and these have enabled her to not just survive some huge trials and personal difficulties, but to come out thriving. The processes she offers encourage self acceptance and personal enquiry at a deep level. She is adept at creating sacred spaces and holding those spaces for individuals and groups to experience profound realisations and shifts, seeing them leap forward in their own unique metamorphosis.
Heidi is empathic about the variety of circumstances people find themselves in, and the many difficulties that are experienced because of the imbalance between the masculine and feminine energy in the world today. Her own story has seen her come out the stronger and wiser from her past: childhood familial dysfunction, experiencing extreme religious intolerance, eating disorders, depression, addictions, homelessness, poverty, abusive relationships; and in more recent years single motherhood and the devastating loss of her daughter. The guidance she offers is therefore empowered, warm hearted, and always both practical and spiritual.
