Diary of Chanting Willows

Holistic Journey with Animals & Mother Earth

A best friend, a teacher, a therapy dog and soul mate

A tiny fluffy black, white and tan puppy came bounding in to my heart. Having selected her from a litter of most adorable border collie pups at a farm outside of West Kilbride in North Ayrshire, I was yet unaware of the deep relationship and destiny which was to unfold between us both. I named her Yukon after the great wilderness of Canada. And indeed, she grew up to be a stunning border collie fit for the wild and breath taking mountains, rivers and lakes of the Yukon territory.

There is much said about the companionship of a dog. The term man’s best friend is known world wide and not something questioned or put much thought in to. And there are many references to the loyalty and companionship of hounds in myths and legends. I feel it is often limited to the idea of a man or woman training their dog to be trust worthy and loyal. But, I am guessing that many do not understand the sheer magnitude of such a relationship. How deep it runs through your very essence and soul and how nourishing such a companionship can be. Now, I am very aware that there are many people out there that see a dog as a worker, may be even view them as one of their machines or a means to make money. And yes, there are those that also see a dog as a baby, as a child or even as an extension of their ego or another one of their accessories. Okay, before you think I am going all judgemental, that is not my intentions but I do wish to inspire others to view the dog as an equal companion, as a soulful sentient being with just as an important destiny as what each and every one of us have. Controlling a dog will not led to a profound relationship or allow the dog to truly embarkk on their own destiny. And may be my journey with my dearest Yukon will help to open your eyes and heart to the truth that is welcoming a dog fully and openly in to your life.

About Chanting Willows

W3Schools.com

Sensitivity & Compassion for all animals




A homesteading and a sanctuary for animals founded on trust, healing and harmony. Chanitng Willows is a place where we connect deeply with animals and help rescue and rehabilitate horses through holisitc animal healing and spiritual practices and intuitive communication.

Currently changes are being made to Chanting Willows and more information will be arriving soon. Animal Healing Servicess will be available again soon along with the launch of our school.



Welcome to Chanting Willows, a place of healing for animals based in Dumfries and Galloway where we look after a number of our own animal companions and strive to live in balance with nature, to live sustainably tending to vegetables, fruits and herbs and promoting eco and plastic free living while and educating bout the importance of environemtnal protection and wildife.

Our approach is to work alongside animals in order to create harmony and develop a deeper bond between human and animal beleiving in the kindness, geneltness, trusting approach with all animals no matter how aggressive that animal may be. Every approach will be differnet as every animal is unique. We all have the ability to heal both ourselves and animals by showing such things as kindness, responsibility and patience. If we allow and follow such an approach, animals help us to become the very best version of ourselves. We hope to help people with animals to open up to communications themselves and to truly listen by offering a number of courses and training.. We do not believe that there are those with special gifts being able to intuitively communicate with animals and be healers - Ww believe that we all possess such abilities and I wish to help others find that so they can deepen their understanding of their animal companions and find healing themselves and "returning home to nature".

At Chanting Willows we are always learning (especially from the animals)and developing, growing in spirit and finding better ways to live more harmoniosuly wiht nature and providie the best possible care and healing for animals and to be of service in whichever way we can. We truly hope to inspire.

Why is holistic animal healing & communication so beneficial for animals?


By intuitively communicating with animals, we can understand what may have happened in the past or in the present which could be causing behaviourhal problems and blocked energy system in the present. By helping to release negative attachments such as abuse or other emotions such as grief. With the use of kinesiology to help identify muscular tension and blocked energies which may be linked to a horse not being ridden properly, maybe the rider is too tense or harsh, and when a dog is being controlled on a lead in a way which causes discomfort. The use of aromatherapy helps on an emotional and physical level when the animal decides on which oil he/she likes and enjoys the aroma which enters the blood stream. Every animal is different and there are no set times in the healing process for it is up to the animal whether he/she is willing to open up, to communicate and begin to heal himself/herself. The healing work i do always has the highest good of the animal who comes to Chanting Willows, practiced with patience, unconditional love and sensitivity and also working with all concerned in the animal's life.

Helping Wild Animals



Connecting with nature and helping to protect wildlife has always been extremely important to us and at Chanting Willows we strive to live a live which is healthy for the environment and animals. Products are eco and natural and often handmade. We reuse, recycle, use chemical free cleaning products among many other things. We are continually striving to enhance the quality of how we live to be in further harmony with nature. Chanting Willows is a safe place for wild aniamls to enter and we ar eworking to create an area to help heal any injured wild animals. Also, Chanting Willows works alongside Galloway Earth Crusaders.

A bridge to inner healing with the help of aniamls



Animals truly help provide so much healing and in such a profoundly deep spiritual, emotional and physical way. Although I have such a love for animals, I love people too and know how desparately individuals are in desparate need of healing and overall the collective healing of humanity. We have become so distant from nature and we see more and more problems linked to addictions, abuse, eating disorders and much more. It is extremely heart breaking and the world is in such disarray. I had challanges as a child from anorexia to diagnosis of lupus. But I had the support of animals and nature and ultimately an independent defiant streak which helped me to step out as a role of victim but instead in to a role as a healer, idealist and visionary. Animals truly help us return home to our true place in the world, that is Earth, a place of harmony and connection. And animals also teach us so much, offer comfort but also, give us a goal, a responsibility and a connection to the present moment. Through my animal assisted therapy I would like to reach out to children who sufer from dis-ease, to troubled youth, those finding themselves in a dark place of an eating disorder and those in the autism spectrum.

Re-Wilding Horses & the land


The beginning of a vision...

Coming soon...

My path, ever since a young age, has been connected to the land, to the spirit of plants and animals. Much of what I do at Chanting Willows and the magical and spiritual way of life I follow is a path I like to call, returning home to nature. A place of infinite possibilities, of ancient healing and a deeply rooted connection and wholeness to the earth that society is drastically missing.

It is our vision to inspire others to take on a journey with their horses that is for the well-being of the horse rather than the receiving of a ribbon or for personal pleasure which puts the horse in discomfort with the use of bits and spurs, unnaturl conditions such as boarded in stalls, shoeing or living in isolation. Keeping horses can be a challenge when we are faced with conditions which are not truly suitable for the full well-being of our beautiful spirited friends. It is our dream to ensure a natural lifestyle as much as possible, to have an expansive area where the horses can live more wild as behaviour intends and to help inspire others to begin to make chages. This juorney will deepen your freindship and bond with your equine friends, a journey where you learn so much from nature and connect once more with your home in nature. The horse world is not a pretty place and it is our vision to help course a path which will be a dream for horses and a path to truly unlockng an harmonious and trusitng relationship with your equine friends.

Warmest wishes,

Dana
