Fiona Barnes

For me Embercombe starts with the land, our connection with the Earth, with ourselves and each other.

My passion is welcoming people to this valley, this land; to this inspirational place, supporting each person to explore their journey on this one precious life.

I have had the privilege of living and working here for many years; being loved and challenged in the right balance for me to grow, to find my voice, the step in to my power.

I am one of Embercombe’s Firekeepers, pledging my commitment to the Children’s Fire; celebrating Earth ceremonies in the Stone Circle, honoring the land and all its beings, seen and unseen.

I lead the Experience Weekends and support our Grow the Grown Ups and The Journey programmes amongst others.

What does Embercombe mean to you?

I love the land and want to be part of it, to know it in greater depth each day - to become 'reindiginised'.
