About Della Ratcliffe
I like to think of myself as a Badass Crone, embracing the aging process, and supporting other women in connecting to all archetypal parts of the Self from Maiden through to Woman/Creatrix and Crone — and all stages in-between and beyond.
I do this work as a women’s group facilitator, animistic coach and practitioner, and working with several energetic healing practices including Psych-K©, Alchemical Healing, Reiki and journeying/meditation.
In my personal time, I am a triathlete-in-training, a budding herbalist and artisan.
I am committed to holding space for your Inner Journey to your authentic and powerful Self so that you can find your Medicine, and align with the energies of Mama Earth, Father Sky and Grandmother Moon as they manifest in your locale.
In our journey together, my goal is to step into the energies of an Isumataq, an Inuit (Inuktitut) word roughly translated as “the person who creates the atmosphere in which wisdom reveals itself.”
And know that the wisdom is already within you.
I am passionate about
Coaching with Spirit
Aligning with Nature
by supporting your commitment to creating sustainable holistic transformation and connecting to your deep inner wisdom
by supporting you in aligning with the energies of the natural world, and in finding your authentic Self through group work, personal earth-based spiritual practices, and healing
and her rhythms and seasons, through exploring Earth medicine, Moon medicine, and the PSYCH-K© Principles of Nature
Inner Journey Events
This journey began with Inner Journey Outfitters in 2004, my initial coaching practice which supported individuals on their journey, through NLP-based transformational coaching, PSYCH-K® balancing and shamanic journeying.
Inner Journey Events was founded in 2008, as the group-work division of Inner Journey Outfitters, and was soon featured in Macleans magazine as Advice for the Beginner Psychic. Our initial focus was holding the light for individuals developing their intuitive abilities and those on a journey of personal growth. For many people, our events provided one of the few places to openly discuss their gifts and their journey in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere. The number of workshops grew and soon included a range of topics from Alchemy to Zen, including many intuitive and healing modalities, energy work, core shamanism, animism, earth medicine, meditation techniques, creative workshops and more.
My work with Inner Journey Events has shifted once again, and has now moved to a virtual environment through online courses, groups and workshops, and a private Facebook group — the Wise Woman Bean Gealach Circle — to support women in their journey of exploration and alignment with the Mama Earth and Grandmother Moon.
Inner Journey Events is strongly committed to community support, and donates to local and global charities committed to a sustainable environment, and to the health and education of the world’s children.
Our social commitment is based on the 1-1-1 model: each year we donate to these charities 1% of our income, 1% of our time and 1% of our products or services.
My practice is firmly planted in earth-based spirituality, healing, and Irish paganism, offering workshops, on-line events and private sessions. I support individuals with both traditional coaching techniques, imramma (meditative journeys), earth medicine, alchemical healing, energy work such as Reiki, the PSYCH-K® Principles of Nature and PSYCH-K® balancing facilitation.
Moon Mná is a gathering of women in community and in sisterhood under the timeless symbol of the Divine Feminine – Grandmother Moon. The emergence of ancient Irish wisdom emanating from the land of Ireland is lovingly brought forth in a new and contemporary way for all to share.
Since 2009, we have gathered in beautiful Moon Circles all over the world and our collective stories weave harmoniously together through distinct Themes.
I share this wisdom, along with other earth-based, moon-based and goddess-based women’s spirituality and practices, in several ways: on-line courses, blog, private Facebook group the Wise Woman Bean Gealach Circle, our online Bean Gealach Circle and in our social media.
Inner Journey Events is located in Vancouver, Canada, on the traditional, ancestral, unceded lands of the Coast Salish peoples: sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam).
