ABOUT KUBI MAY
It's hard to say when a person embarks on their journey working with spirit. As a little girl I was always chatting away to elementals in the garden, making potions from crushed herbs & flowers. Instinctively, I always felt that my home was from a galaxy very far away and that I was only a visitor on Earth, as though I had a spiritual mission to get on with. Then, as I grew older, I began the study of spirituality & explored reading any book I could on esoteric healing. My global travels as a teenager taught me how magic & ritual had manifested in different indigenous cultures worldwide and I began to train towards becoming a Reiki healer (and eventually teacher) from the age of 18.
By my twenties, I finished my University Degree; a BA Honours in Creative Therapies where I focused my dissertation on the healing power of creative ritual and art in Psychotherapy. Following this, I worked for 5 years as a Family Therapist as part of an Intensive intervention Team for Children in Social Care in London, whilst also managing an Activist Art group 'The People's Tribe' to try and promote positive change in society with creativity (and rebellion!)
As I approached my thirties, I began to explore the healing potential of plant medicine and it's role in shamanic healing. One summer, I challenged myself to set off at sunset for a lone overnight pilgrimage, where I walked 12 hours through the night, singing songs to the stars, and arrived at sunrise on the mystical lands of Glastonbury for the first time, where I began my training in Shamanism.... and never left!
I'm still a member of the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP) but now I also weave healing magic into my work! I live a harmonious life upon the mystical lands of Avalon; the heart chakra of the world and Celtic homeland of the Druids. It's in this sacred motherland, where I forage and make flower tincture medicines from the earth. More than anything, I love to hold space for others walking the sacred path of initiation or undertaking shadow work - using ritual and creativity to transform the darkness into light.
I spend my time hosting workshops in Reiki Training, Wand Initiations, Creative Therapy and Soul Alchemy in Glastonbury and offer 1-1 Reiki Healings and Creative Therapy sessions both online and in person.
It's a very gentle way of life (one that i'm humbled to be living) which allows me in my spare time to go on long dog walks, write mythical poetry, sculpt handmade wands and create artwork of memories from other worlds far, far away from here...
