This blog offers a nurturing space for healing, growth and transformation.
The name of this blog derives from a mandala I painted around 11 years ago. The Rainbowtree Woman symbolises a strong and balanced feminine energy. The Sacred Feminine exists within all of us. She is all that draws us towards the qualities of the heart – love, connectivity, compassion, forgiveness, sensitivity, intuitive power, creativity and feeling a deep oneness with nature, all people and Mother Earth.

Together with my partner Juerg Dreamturtle, I write, create and share a life of nomadic travel in our campervan. Wherever possible we spend time in nature gathering wild foods, i.e mushrooms, berries and wild weeds for cooking as well as medicine. We love to share with people and cultures, which are devoted to live a simple life in harmony with Mother Earth.
Early in 2017, while traveling in Sicily for the winter, we were “unexpectedly” joined by our dog companion whom we named “Cento Cavalli”. We found him abandoned by his mother at a very tender moment in his early life. He was still wet from birthing fluid, umbilical cord still attached and crying out for help – lying under the oldest tree in Europe and the most active volcano in Europe – Monte Etna in Sicily. We named him after the ancient and well known Chestnut tree where we found him – “Castagne dei Cento Cavalli”. Cento is now 2 years old. He is a very healthy, active, playful and intelligent dog. We feel blessed to have him with us on our journey.
Our Facebook page, “Sacred Journey” was created to share some of our insights and photos from our nomadic life on the road.
My work is about supporting others through personal sessions to heal and grow towards their authentic self – and a life in harmony with their heart and soul being. I also love to support people to connect with the magic and beauty of nature, through my paintings and photographs.
Juerg Dreamturtle is the author of “Sacred Journey – a Simple Book of Soul Wisdom, Love and Healing.” He offers soul wisdom for people, families, communities, leaders, cultures and nations to heal and grow in love, compassion, well-being, harmony and self-sufficiency.
