All About Eve

Early Days...

I was born in Germany and my childhood took me to live in various places within the UK and in Hong Kong, due to my parents profession. Eventually myself and my family settled down in North Yorkshire UK where I lived out my teens and early adult years.

There I studied lots of things from beauty therapy, massage, languages, travel, among having various jobs and had two children along the way.

Life Experiences...

My colourful Life Experiences led me to settle in Abbotsbury, in south west Dorset (UK)

This ancient, sacred village helped me to rest and heal and find myself again.

It was here that I connected with my lovely friends at the G.I.C (the Global Illumination Council) which is now ‘The Bernard Alvarez Website‘ – I then became an admin myself on the website which led to 1 & a half years of being a co-host on their internet radio show. Bernard, Treva and the team taught me SO much and I became a sponge for knowledge once again.

Spiritual Re-Awakening...

At the age of 33 – in 2010 –  I embarked on a life changing charity trek – for Amnesty International – to Peru, which was where I had my ‘Spiritual Re-Awakening’. It was the hardest but most profound thing i've ever done (appart from having my children of course)

When I came back to the UK I decided to channel all that sacred energy I had soaked up in Peru, into learning how to be a Healer. This is where I started my Healing/Reiki journey. Over the next few years I achieved levels 1, 2 & 3. I was then able to pass on my knowledge by teaching it too.

During this time, I met the local Druids – The Dorset Grove – and I became initiated, at Stonehenge, into their group

Healing Center...

I opened up a healing center, called ‘Garden of Eve’ in Abbotsbury – in 2011 – and myself, my mum and some wonderful friends ran it for 3 years. We ran workshops, meditation sessions, sold a variety of items from around the world in the shop, we went on sacred walks, I taught Reiki to people of all ages -including couples, we also created a peace garden for people to chill out in and generally had an amazing time. We had to close the center in 2014.

It was during this time that I met Roy, a builder/contractor, born and bred in Abbotsbury. I helped him out at work. This was also an eye opening experience and I found myself doing things I never thought i’d do, for example – driving 6 ton dumpers, labouring, logging,  and lots more.

HandFasting...

In 2015, me & Roy got married (legaly)  then had an amazing hand fasting/heart joining ceremony – see the photos here  – at St. Catherines Chapel in Abbotsbury, we moved house – to Portesham – and had my third child all within the year. 

My Journey So Far...

In July 2017 we decided to move to France. We bought an old barn in the mountains of the Cantal, in the Auvergne region. We are renovating it to live in and to let as a Gite.  

We are also creating a Peaceful, Interactive, Global Community which collectively inspires, shares and creates. A Place for Rest and Rejuvenation.


I have now had my 4th child. My healing work is in an amazing, transitional period, which will continue once we are settled into our new home. It has definately grown beyond Reiki and I feel that this next stage in my life is something special indeed. I can’t wait to share it with people.

I am currently training to be a Doula. 

I have also home-schooled my children for the last few years.

Life continues to bring me new and wonderful experiences. I am always learning and always in a state of Appreciation, Love and Awe.


In the words of Nahko – Medicine for the people…  ‘I believe in the good things coming’

Which includes many happy years of learning, loving, sharing, laughing and connecting with like-minded, genuine spirits.
