There is a softness in Jen that invites your inner child to play. A former economist and community regeneration manager, Jen has always loved to work with people. A pollinator, co-operator and seer of human potential she believes we all have our own solutions and loving listening attention is what we can offer each other to be well and find balance. Jen qualified in Aromatherapy in 2005, after being told she had a gift for healing with her hands. So the spark was ignited and went on to study the naked voice, sound healing, flower remedies and various talking therapies. Initiated as a Magdalene High Priestess she lives in rhythm with the moon, seasons and the plants and is fluent in the interpretation of symbolism and the way of love. All these practices have restored a sense of wholeness and shown her that home is always just a breath away for us all. She loves to share and celebrate what you already know, deep within. Book pollination time with Jen for spiritual mentoring, letting your inner child play, learning more of the priestess path and embodied listening.
Jen founded LOMAH after receiving a vision back in March 2017 during a beautiful walk above Llangollen. Following a journey with the bees, she saw a full rainbow with its end in a field below hearing the most melodic sound. She dreamed of a collective of 'bees' sharing skills, working together to bring in the 'honey' and pollinate the flowers. Her plan was to go to Oswestry and be a Wizardess of Os, to create a Land of Milk and Honey and guide people back home to themselves with sound, scent, touch and movement because like Dorothy she knows there's no place like home. In her 50th year here on earth, she found the companions that would later secure the vision - The Flower Faced Fracas - a kinship of singing women.
Kirsty is joyful to be collaborating with the Land of Milk and Honey. She works with not for profits and small ethical organisations, to help them develop and grow to fulfil their potential. Kirsty offers an authentic, alternative style of support as a creative soul with a love of nurturing people to live their vision. Kirsty enjoys working in different ways to help people manifest their work into their dream.
Kirsty paints, draws, sings, writes, dances and swims in the wild. Her socialism, intersectional feminism, environmental concern and activism run through her life and work. Kirsty's background is in business and human resources: she has lectured at college and university and is a qualified teacher for adults, but chose to find her own way, often working on a sharing or exchange basis. Kirsty co-founded Llangollen Food Share in 2019, and her motherhood spreads beyond her three Wildflowers and into her work to help people flourish.
Kirsty is an original member of women's creative collective Flower Faced Fracas where she first met Siân in 2017. Jen joined the circle in 2019 and Emily in 2020, with Kate as a frequent welcome guide. Sharing sisterhood, values and ethos connects them. Working together is like weaving a vibrant tapestry. The Land of Milk and Honey is Jen’s vision, creation and true calling, and it has brought new bees to the hive. Helping to hone LOMAH to perfection, working collectively and sharing it with like-minded people who will benefit so significantly is part of Kirsty's.

Siân is a poet, singer, tarot reader and keeper of Llangollen Women's Sanctuary. A natural gatherer of folk, Siân can usually be found weaving the threads of kinship and collective.
She is a founding member of the Flower Faced Fracas, a Llangollen based women's singing collective conceived at the 2017 winter solstice and inspired by the old Welsh story of Blodeuwedd.
She is a believer in safe spaces as a container for radical evolution, both internal and external.
Born in Nesscliff and raised in Oswestry, Kate left Shropshire to study and work in Manchester and London. Following a year’s travelling overseas she returned to the county, fell in love with the landscape, and stayed.
She freelances on a wide range of arts and health projects, and has facilitated singing and songwriting sessions for the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, the Workers Educational Association, Severn Hospice and community arts projects.
‘One of our many superpowers is to create some ‘thing’ from no ‘thing’ through play. Exploring silence and sound via full-body listening and focused curiosity can be one of the juiciest places for humans to hang out.’
‘Lives can change when we remember who we are. Programmed organically and unconsciously from birth, an idea develops of ourselves as separate from the world, prompting behaviour to protect an ‘I’ that’s made up! All sorts of beliefs, many intergenerational, are swallowed whole and never questioned. Our innate impulse to explore and create with the innocence and wonder of children becomes stifled to meet arbitrary rules about social acceptability. As we return to the source of all-that-is (Silent Sandwiches), these beliefs are seen and magically fall away (Walkie Talkies), our true voices are reclaimed (Liberate Your Voice) and our authentic self stands revealed, shining as a unique expression of limitless potential.’
